Hi! I’m Candice, the face of “The Edgy Veg”, and I am on a journey to revolutionize how we think about food, eco-conscious living, and feminism. I am the author of “The Edgy Veg: 138 Carnivore-Approved Vegan Recipes”, a delicious cookbook that delivers vegan recipes with attitude and comedy. Edgy by nature, I use my YouTube channel, and Instagram pages to disrupt the vegan community with my candid and humorous take on activism not only for animals and food built differently, but also mental health, the environment, and female empowerment. 

Love food porn? Watch me on my YouTube show by the same name, and follow along I teach you how to make your life more compassionate using the power of culinary expression. New episodes every Tuesday & Thursday!

Is reading more your thing? Check out my library of online recipes and food hacks that serve as an inspiration for a new generation of vegan food artists. Every recipe can be enjoyed by vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike–they’re Carnivore Approved!
