My name is Aparna and I hail from Ann Arbor, Michigan where I live the good life. I live with my hubby, who you’ll come to know as REB, and our dog Gryff, who we spoil senseless.
This blog began as a way to keep track of recipes I’ve cooked, but evolved into a place to share our adventures of traveling, eating, cooking, daily life of our awkward, stumpy four-legged fur kid, and us, living life.
Both REB and I are vegetarians and love to cook and come up with healthy, new vegetarian recipes; many of which you’ll see here! I’ve been a vegetarian for almost 6 years and truly believe a healthier lifestyle can be achieved by switching to a plant-based diet with the addition of daily exercise. While I started out as a pescetarian, it was very easy to transition into a full vegetarian lifestyle. Having a mother who is vegetarian and never cooked meat when I grew up (and still doesn’t), and having a husband who has been a vegetarian for almost 12 years doesn’t hurt either.
The blog name, Not A Leaf, comes from my name, so this blog has literally become my personal, little escape from the daily hustle and bustle. All the thoughts and opinions expressed in this blog are my own, as well as all the photos (unless otherwise noted), so I ask you respect that courtesy and not take anything from here unless you can link it back. Share the love!
I love hearing from readers, so please drop me a line!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy :)
