“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a vegan in possession of a good appetite must be in want of a veggie blogging community…”

I’m a three-year vegan and newly graduated Environmental Analysis major whose idea of heaven is a good book, a warm cup of tea, and a toasty vegan scone…or muffin (or scuffin)! This is my virtual little cuppa, to laugh, cry, chat, and, I daresay, share recipes. Ms. Austen might claim that “A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of,” but I think that a delicious vegan meal might just be enough.

Besides veganism, my great passion is photography – I’m mostly self-taught, and I’m still learning of course! I shoot with a Canon 7D and I absolutely adore it, although the moment a 5D Mk III comes out, I’m so there. My other interests include animals (especially my bull terrier Rupert!), running (I’ve done two half marathons and look forward to running a full), yoga, and even classical guitar, though I suck at it!

I can’t decide whether I want to be a naturopath, nutritionist, writer/editor, restaurateur, or photographer – which can be a little overwhelming at times; but I’m extremely grateful to have such a diverse range of passions, so you’ll never hear me complain about it! I’m confident I’ll end up where I need to be.

Thanks for gracing my blog with your presence; I love making new friends, so feel free to contact me with any comments, questions, or just to chat at norakuby AT gmail DOT com!

Remember, “Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance,” but eating in a way that does not harm animals, the planet, and ourselves is completely within our power, and every day – three times a day! – we are fortunate enough to have the chance to make the right choice.

If Pride & Vegudice is agreeable in your eyes, you can become further acquainted with my photography at my 365 photo blog, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Nora Found There, as well as Nora Kuby Photography.

  16. I stumbled upon your blog and absolutely love it! I’m a big Jane Austen fan myself (and vegan), so incorporating both ideas just feels right!

    • Thanks! It’s a little unintuitive since vegan was the furthest thing from the diets of her character (they basically just ate meat, eggs, dairy, potatoes, and bread, right? haha except for the occasional strawberry picking…), But Jane was all about civility and I can’t think of anything less civil than factory farming!
