Our Vegan and Gluten-Free Story
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 delicious, simple, plant-based, vegan & gluten-free recipes 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. This 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.
We believe in our hearts that cooking, baking and living gluten-free and vegan can be an easy and 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.
We want our food to be delicious like our grilled tofu vegetable skewers featured in VegNews; and of course healthy and delicious too and for anyone to enjoy from full-time vegans to flexitarians.
Being vegan is a journey and something everyone has to choose for themselves. However, a plant-based diet or a meat-free Monday recipe can add value to everyone's life. Some come for health, others for the environment and others for the animals. Forget all the labels, one of these reasons or all of these reasons are a great reason to try a vegan soul food recipe or two or our homemade v/gf mac and cheese recipe featured on Parade.com.
We hope you’ll leave with recipes that you find tasty, easy to make and that you’ll want to share with others. We look forward to many great food conversations with you.
