Shauna Leigh

I'm a writer and editor who's traveled throughout the U.S. in search of fabulous plant-based meals, eco-friendly stays, and much, much more. Here, at Gastro-Licious.com, I highlight favorite recipes, favorite eateries, favorite hotels, favorite products, and maybe a few other favorite things too (wink, wink). A journalist by trade, I studied plant-based nutrition through Cornell University and am eager---along with my biggest supporter, Gastro Gabe---to share what WE know and what WE are still learning with the world. I support responsible agriculture, sustainable fisheries and just about anything and everything that promotes conscious living. Like what you see? Feel free to reach out, press@gastro-licious.com as we are always looking for like minded individuals and companies to connect with. Thanks for stopping by.

“Good food and good eating are about risk. Every once in a while an oyster, for instance, will make you sick to your stomach. Does this mean you should stop eating oysters? No way.”― Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly

"I'm actually no longer a strict vegan. I don't hang out in the cheese section - I don't even eat cheese. I don't drink milk. But every once in a while I'll have an egg. I'm going to eat eggs that come out of my next-door neighbor's farm, that's just the way it is." ~ Jason Mraz
