Healthy and delicious recipes made simple. Hi I'm Jacinthe, I'm a huge animal and nature lover, and I also love food, I'm kind of a food adventurer. So I started creating delicious, meat-free, healthy, and tasty recipes for myself, which led to sharing them on my blog Simply Vegelicious. I want to show that, contrary to popular beliefs, a plant-based diet is not boring, but delicious.
