Hey there, I’m Melodie. Here is where I share my passion for plant-based cuisine, zero-waste lifestyle and being a sustainable mama. I post recipes, recommendations and resources. My hope to inspire you to make greener choices where you can. While individual actions alone can’t fix the climate crisis, I believe they can empower people to lobby for change.

Is this a food blog?

MTL VEG started as a food blog in 2013, but I’ve grown a lot since then. I’ve since expanded MTL VEG to include topics around zero-waste living, sustainability and parenting. I’ll continue to share recipes and Montreal-based recommendations too. Bon Appétit!

Why veg? 

After watching one too many documentaries on factory farming, I went vegetarian at 14. I never thought it would stick, but it’s been more than 20 years! Recently, I’ve been moving a lot more towards entirely plant-based cuisine and transitioned my blog to 100% vegan. I feel that a plant-based diet is the right move for the environment, animals and health.
