BEHIND THE PHOTOS
Hi there! I'm Jeeca (that's short for Jessica) and I'm just a 22-year old trying to do better while navigating her way through life.
I started my Instagram account thefoodietakesflight when I decided to go vegan overnight back in 2015. This was after watching the documentary called Earthlings and realized that I no longer wanted to contribute to the cruelty towards animals. I eventually learned of the environmental impact of our diets on this planet, that has made me more conscious of my day-to-day choices starting from the food I consume and products I purchase.
Going on this vegan lifestyle has been one of the the best decision I've made. It came with its highs and lows, but I always remind myself to stand by what I believe in. Being vegan in college isn't easy as well, but I've learned how to work my way around social events and dealing with skeptical individuals. I'm beyond grateful for the people who constantly support me and the amazing individuals I've met along the way. Now, it's been over 4 years and I'm happier than ever.
I share my recipes here and do my best to make them as easy, simple, and enjoyable as possible. I also want to inspire others to adapt a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle because our choices can help contribute to a more positive change in this planet we call home. I hope you enjoy my recipes as much as I do.
