Welcome fellow foodies!
I'm Faith, aka "The Conscientious Eater"
I'm a plant-eating, mom of two littles who is currently living in the wonderful city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
In 2013, I went vegan cold-turkey after watching the Forks Over Knives documentary! Later that year, I started The Conscientious Eater to share my recipes with the world. Since then, I have been the primary recipe developer, photographer and content creator behind this website.
The Conscientious Eater is where I share all of my vegan recipes, meal prep guides and vegan cooking hacks that I have picked up in during my (almost) 10 years of plant-based eating!
On this page, I'd love to introduce myself and everything we have to offer on this site. That way you can find what you're looking for quickly and easily!
The vast majority of my recipes are easy to make, use ingredients that you can read (think whole foods), and can be made by anyone!
As a mom of two young kids, I need quick, simple recipes. I know a lot of you are looking for the same!
For my main dishes and sides, I focus on well-balanced meals that have a protein, carb, fat, and either fruit or veggies. Oh! And yes, I think dessert absolutely has a place in a well-balanced diet!
My recipe page now comes with the ability to filter all 500+ of my recipes on The Conscientious Eater so that you can find the perfect vegan recipe for any occasion!
You can filter by cuisine, season, recipe type, diet, and ingredient!
Vegan Meal Prep Guides
Did I mention I have two little kids? Actually, I should probably say that I have two little kids and one big kid (ahem, my husband) and for some reason all three of them want to eat three square meals, snacks and dessert every. single. day!
That's why I meal prep! Meal prepping for the week, or even just a few days, can be a life saver for me!
I share all of my meal prep videos on my YouTube channel, many of which come with a free downloadable PDF that you can print and keep on hand in your kitchen.
