Deepa - One Small Pot

Food Writer

Food is not just sustenence for me, it is much much more. Food draws people together, evokes memories, some buried deep, and brings it’s own joy to all things in life. The recipes you will find on my website called ‘One Small Pot’ are for the most part healthy with the occasioanl indulgence. Many are vegetarian and some vegan, gluten free or low in sugar.

Pamela Grzeskowiak

Food Writer

I have been a vegetarian for over 4 years now and have been eating raw since 2011. The main reason my family and I became vegan is for my health. Sadly i have Diabetes type 1. Becoming vegan made it easier for me to control my sugar levels and insulin consumption. My goal in life is to convince people to change their lives around and start living healthy while being happy.
