Selene Vakharia

Selene Vakharia is the author of veganlicious, a Toronto-based “vegan, gluten-free and sometimes raw” food blog.

In 2008, after six years of being a gluten-free vegan, Selene discovered and began experimenting with the raw foodstyle. A self-professed “lazy chef”, she was drawn to raw cuisine and its endless possibilities for tasty meals that could be made when armed with nothing more than her trusty food processor or blender. Around the same time, she began veganlicious as a way to share her love for cuisine that’s delicious, healthy and sustainable.

Sparked by a desire to learn more about the food/health connection, in 2010 Selene went back to school for holistic nutrition at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Through veganlicious, she shares her knowledge of holistic nutrition and strives to make it easy and tasty for people to incorporate more healthful food and meals into their lives.

When not blogging, Selene is eating olives, going for bike rides, hugging cats and daydreaming.
