Who am I?
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England.
I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert.
Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it!
Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, in good company over a nice meal, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
About Earth of Maria
After wanting to give blogging a go for ages, I started this blog together with my Instagram page, @earthofmariaa, as a creative outlet and a way to connect with people who are passionate about the same things as myself. Wanting to build up my confidence, I decided to put myself out there while hopefully helping others at the same time.
Here you’ll be able to find a collection of food that makes me happy. My recipes are all vegan and most are gluten-free and oil-free. Many take a short time to prepare, making them perfect for a busy lifestyle. I believe in using simple and whole ingredients to create main meals, desserts and snacks that are big on flavour. I’m super passionate about making plant based eating easy and delicious for everyone!
I’ve also recently published my first vegan ebook, Easy Vegan Under 30 Minutes, which contains 61 delicious vegaan recipes that are gluten-free, oil-free, and creative.
Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook to stay updated – I’m particularly active on Instagram. If you ever give any of my recipes a go, do tag me on Instagram/send me a DM, and leave a comment letting me know what you thought – I love receiving feedback!
If you’re a brand and would like to work with me, either send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out my contact form.
Thank you very much for visiting my blog and I hope the rest of your day is wonderful!
