“It’s incredible to think that when I started my blog and called it “Rebel Recipes,” it was about rebelling against people’s preconceived ideas that vegan food was dull, boring, and tasteless. That was in 2016 and so much has changed since then. The world has finally realized that there are so many benefits to following a vegan diet or simply reducing meat consumption. These range from animal welfare to health concerns, but mainly, I would say, it’s the positive impact on the environment. People want to know where their food is coming from and its impact on the planet. This has started with what we eat, something tangible that people can change, but it’s expanding to other areas rapidly, too.”6Foreword Reviews. Interview with Niki Webster.
