The First Mess

Laura has created an online platform dedicated to cooking and sharing delicious vegan food, which is her passion. She sources inspiration from seasonal produce to create her recipes. Although most of her readers and followers do not exclusively identify as plant-based or vegan, her goal is to encourage everyone to incorporate more plant-based meals into their diet, regardless of their level of experience.

The platform offers a variety of cooking inspiration, with a focus on vegan main course recipes. However, readers can also find a plethora of great soups and stews, quick and easy recipes, and a few sweet treats. Along with her recipes, Laura also shares plant-based and feel-good lifestyle inspiration. She has a background in culinary nutrition, having graduated from a nutritional culinary program, worked in restaurants, and volunteered at a local community food education center before starting her blog as a hobby.
