But don’t worry, you’ll be eating more than just salads in no time with the help of Broke Bank Vegan.

Where to Start
A Little About Us
We’ve always loved creating recipes that not only look and taste delicious, but provide the most value-for-money. We’re constantly inspired by new cuisines from our travels around the world, and we like to experiment with all kinds of flavors.
We currently live in Kelowna BC, Canada. Since we were young, we’ve been involved in every type of sport. Mitch played hockey in the Western Hockey League, and Justine played varsity soccer. Because of this, we’re extremely competitive and like to challenge ourselves (and each other) in the kitchen.
Despite our occasional foul language and casual writing style, we’re actually both registered nurses. We’ve always had a passion for health, and we’ve used our education to help us navigate the world of nutrition and dietetics. It really helps knowing what to look for in research studies to help make informed decisions surrounding food.
We realize the limitations of science, and we understand new research is published daily that may go against what we believe. In saying that, we do our very best to stay up-to-date with the latest information, and try to keep an unbiased opinion. But most importantly, we give you the facts and figures to make your own informed decisions.
Wow, that just got a little bit serious.
Our Vegan Experience
We’ve been vegan for over 5 years, and we haven’t wilted away yet. We’ve also experimented with high-carb low-fat, keto, raw, and fruitarian, amongst others.
Through these experiences, we’ve learned the best approach for us is to eat a balanced, plant-based diet. This means eating all types of foods, whether it be a salad or a cheesecake. It’s all about moderation, but enjoying ourselves at the same time.
We’ve learned so much about cooking over the years, and we have a ton of recipes to share with you. We’re excited you’re here, and we hope to see more of you!
