About Me


Hi! Thanks for visiting.

I am Eva. I’m certified as a Culinary Nutrition Expert from the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. I’m also certified as a Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach from the Nutraphoria School of Holistic Nutrition. I am based in Montreal, Canada, and speak English, French, and Greek.

The kitchen is my happy place. Check out my cooking demos on YouTube & Instagram @plantbased_eva. I hope to inspire you to join me in the kitchen and start cooking meals from scratch using real food.

No matter where you are right now on your own personal journey, I hope the cooking demos and the blog will inspire you to eat real food and live a more sustainable lifestyle.

The recipes I showcase on this website and social media are filled with plant-based foods, but you don’t need to be a vegan to make them.

Whether you’re fully committed to a plant-based diet or simply plant-curious, there’s a space for you here!

My Food Philosophy

My food philosophy is based on a plant-based, gluten-free lifestyle.

I love how it makes me feel. This way of eating is personally working for me but might not work for everyone. That’s why it’s important to listen to our body and pay attention to the foods we are eating.

Whole plant-based foods meet most of my nutritional needs. I choose to eat fresh, local, organic, and non-genetically modified foods as much as possible.

I focus on whole food plant-based meals. Plants have become the stars of my meals focusing on vegetables, fruits, gluten-free whole grains, lentils, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu, tempeh, leafy greens, and healthy oils.

My relationship with food has changed over the years. I developed sensitivities to gluten and dairy. Therefore I decided it was best to eliminate them. Cooking mostly from home now and I am loving the process!

I don’t identify myself as vegan but I completely respect those who do.
