Welcome to Eat Yourself Green! I’m so happy to have you here 🙂
My name is Larissa and I loooove cooking and eating too (obviously). Here on Eat Yourself Green, I share my favourite recipes, but not only that. I’m pretty passionate about sustainability, zero waste and climate action too. Yep, I talk about it all!
My journey with sustainability started 6 years ago when I started to get more and more informed about the food industry and ended up watching Food INC for the first time, that was enough to change my views overnight (quite literally). I became vegetarian then and there.
I’m extremely glad for each day I decided to take on this lifestyle. I feel energised and excited to help the planet by sharing what I’ve learned with others.
I’m so happy that I can see my efforts are having an impact in other people’s lives. And although the change look small, I know I’m benefiting the planet I live and the lives of thousands of animals.
Even my partner (who actually made this good-looking blog) is now vegetarian and keeps reminding me to bring my bags to the supermarket. I know, he’s a keeper!
I’m originally from Brazil so you’ll see a lot of the food here with a pinch of South American passion. The fondest memories I have from my childhood are the ones in which I’m next to my mom or Nonna (grandma in Italian) watching them cook food from scratch and getting some leftovers while at it. Yum!
Only later in life did I realise that most of what I know to be sustainable today, was actually taught by my family. Recycling, reusing, being creative with what I had and being truly mindful of what I was given, was a gift I received through my upbringing, so I’m more than excited to share a lot of it with you.
About Eat Yourself Green
I believe we all have the responsibility to share the knowledge we have with others. And from what I found out during this short period of time is that a lot of people out there, still have a big stereotyped idea about sustainability or how that lifestyle might look like.
Which comes down to why I started my account on Instagram and now to write this blog and finally to turn it into a business.
So here I am, writing to you and sharing some recipes & tips for a healthier life and offering a complete service to help you fully immerse in a more sustainable lifestyle!
If you would like to embark on a more sustainable lifestyle but feel lost with the amount of information around or perhaps you don’t know where to start? Let me help you live more sustainably, healthier and mindfully.
