Our Story

Authors of The Vgn Way a plant-based, vegan and gluten-free website

Thank you, for visiting The Vgn Way (the vegan way)! No matter how you spell it, we’ve made it our mission to make this site a great place to share our delicious, simple, plant-based, vegan and gluten-free meal ideas with you.

We’re Nija and Shad, Atlanta natives; the former with wheat gluten intolerance the latter a vegan since 2000. We love to cook and bake which has sent us on our journey together, exploring the world of low cost and easy meal prep that’s both good to our tummies and good to our hearts.

Together in the kitchen, we’ve been working hard making recipes and testing them. Because we believe in our hearts that cooking, baking and living gluten-free and vegan can be an easy and a rewarding addition to everyone’s lifestyle. Money shouldn’t and doesn’t have to be a barrier to being healthy. We promise to share everything we’ve learned and are learning about making and baking plant-based, vegan and gluten-free foods for a heart healthy diet.

We hope you’ll leave with recipes that you find tasty and easy to make like our Portabello Fajitas or our Pineapple Jackfruit Nachos. And that you’ll want to share with others. We look forward to many great food conversations with you.
