Hi there!

I’m Melissa, author and creator of Your Easy Vegan Life.

As you have probably guessed, I am also vegan. It took me a year of research and reading before I transitioned to a vegan lifestyle. During that time, I came across a lot of helpful resources but also a lot of confusing information. I asked myself all sorts of questions and it wasn’t always easy to find clear, simple answers.

When I made the switch in early 2014, I started seeing a lot of benefits from my new lifestyle: I saved money on groceries (especially with rising meat prices), I lost a little bit of weight (a lost also explained by a return to regular physical exercise), my energy throughout the day was more consistent, but most importantly, I was now living a life aligned with my values. The change was not without its challenges, but in my mind, so worth it that I decided to start this blog to help people who want to take the same journey. The blog is also a way for me to answer basic questions about veganism, questions that I get asked regularly and that tell me that being vegan is still something that is not well understood in our society. No question is too basic or too simple to be adressed in this blog, or in the Your Easy Vegan Life Facebook community of like-minded individuals.

If you think there are questions I should address in this blog, feel free to drop me a line or connect with me on Twitter as well.

I live in the beautiful city of Montreal, in the province of Quebec, Canada. And yes, I do speak French!

    Bonjour Melissa, Je suis tombée sur ton site par hasard car j’ai entré les mots “Gunas handbags” et j’ai vu que tu t’étais procuré un de leur sac vegan il y a quelques années. Comment tu trouves leur sac au niveau de la qualité, durabilité, etc? Si jamais tu cherches à t’en départir, je m’en cherche un peut-être de seconde main car avec le taux de change américain les sacs Gunas ne sont pas donnés et impossible d’en trouver sur kijiji ici! 🙂 Aussi, peut-être es-tu courant mais sais-tu si une boutique à Montréal tient la marque Gunas? Merci beaucoup!

      Bonjour Julie! Je te recommande chaudement les sacs Gunas, je vais d’ailleurs peut-être m’en procurer un 2e cette année. La qualité est incroyable, extrêmement durable, je porte le mien chaque jour, été comme hiver, et il a l’air neuf. Leur look est assez indémodable, alors tu peux faire plusieurs années avec sans avoir l’air de porter la tendance de l’an passé 🙂 Je n’ai jamais vu de sac Gunas en vente à Montréal, je sais qu’ils ont une boutique à New York. Les ventes se font essentiellement en ligne. Si tu t’inscris à leur liste de distribution, tu pourras être avisée dès qu’ils font une vente. Je sais que l’achat peut sembler imposant au début, mais ils en valent tellement la peine. Moi c’est maintenant le modèle Jane qui attire mon attention!
