Hi, I’m Chika. Welcome to Asian Vegan & Beyond! I am a full-time working professional by day and a newbie blogger by night. I was born in Osaka, Japan and lived in Japan until I moved to San Francisco, California, USA twenty years ago.
I named my blog Asian Vegan & Beyond because I like preparing and eating Asian-inspired vegan foods. I will share vegan food recipes mostly Japanese or Asian foods. I may also do vegan restaurant reviews.
I’ve been a health-conscious person for a long time and found plant-based foods fit me well. I found raw vegan lifestyle in 2013 and had been eating high raw. I love fresh fruits and vegetables but I missed joys of cooking. I started incorporating more cooked foods recently and enjoy being more flexible.
This is the first time I have my own blog site and write blogs in English. I had no idea how to start a blog and frantically researched how to create a website, take/edit photos, open social media accounts etc. to launch this blog. Due to my lack of technical knowledge and a short amount of time spent for launching, this blog may look rough now but I continue learning and making it better. So please stay tune!
Thank you so much for visiting.
