Hello Earthlings!

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. — Henry David Thoreau

Thanks for joining me and welcome to The Plant Based Bae! This is the first of many posts to come featuring recipes, tips, and stories from firsthand experience I’ve gained over the past few years being vegan. One of the hardest things for me as a new vegan was searching for places to go out to eat & how to plan trips to the grocery store. My goal is to help others navigate their own personal journey and to help them with common pitfalls that are easily avoidable with a little bit of knowledge.

For right now, you can expect to discover new recipes & common misconceptions surrounding a plant based diet. I’ll cover the basics like steps on how to remove animal products to your life and vegan hacks at fast food chains. You’ll also hear about my personal journey through adapting a “vegan mindset” in every aspect of my own life including pregnancy! In the future, I plan to conduct interviews among friends, family members, and others out in the world to help uncover some of the finer details & new perspectives to this broad topic.

Lastly, you own a vegan friendly small business in Southern California or a nearby, I’d love to feature you. Times are tough for everyone right now and this blog was created as a way to inspire hope that things will get brighter each day if we keep on creating. Whether you offer food, beverage, fashion, holistic health or lifestyle products, your vegan friendly options are making big changes that the community should know about! Feel free to reach out to me at info@theplantbasedbae.org to collaborate.

As always, thanks for your love & support.

‘Til next time!

Hi! My name is Emerald May and I’m The Plant Based Bae. I was born and raised in the Midwest, and have called Southern California home for the past seven years. In 2018, I decided to switch to a vegan diet which led to me improving my overall quality of life and learning a lot about health & humanitarianism. Since then, I’ve had countless conversations with vigorous vegans and curious omnivores to share what I’ve learned along the way.
