Hi there. My name is Lacey. Some facts about me:
- I’m from Portland, OR
- I am an engineer
- I love to be outside
- I especially love to be active outside: running, biking, hiking, etc.
- And I love food
Plants + polka dots is a place for me to share some of the things I create, mostly in the kitchen. I eat a plant-based diet and call myself “borderline vegan”. Basically, I like to be vegan when I can.
The main reason I have chosen a plant-based diet is because of the negative environmental impacts of our energy-intensive food production system. I have always been an environmentalist and I love the outdoors, so I want to minimize my footprint. And I eat eggs because I know lots of happy chickens that produce them (urban farmers in Portland are for real).
I have had a difficult relationship with food that I continue to struggle with, but I have come a long way. Reading other peoples’ food blogs really helped me deal with my disordered eating and I’ve always wanted to start one myself. So here it is, I hope you enjoy!
