I will always want this blog to be more about the food than about me, but since you’re interested… 😉

Jackie Sobon of Vegan Yack Attack

The name Vegan Yack Attack references a few different things in my life, the most obvious one being that I’m vegan; Yack Attack stems from a nickname I was given. My name is Jackie or Jacqueline (which is where this started) which then became Yacqueli, because of the kitchen staff at a restaurant I used to serve at, then was shortened to Yackie, and finally… Yack Attack.

One thing about me is that I am a very curious person; I am always wanting to learn and am constantly fascinated by new information that I come across. That leads me into why I became Vegetarian, then eventually Vegan. I started reading many articles and studies concerning food, beauty products, household items, etc. and the chemicals that they were made of; not to mention how those chemicals are essentially unregulated. Insanity, I say! Because I have a background in product design, I have always had the notion of living a sustainable life and doing the least damage possible to my surroundings and the planet. But, after reading everything about those chemicals, factory farming, and how the government doesn’t care, there was no looking back and I feel that I am a much better person for it now.

When I began cooking more food at home to avoid the atrocities that are sold in most markets, I started documenting them; feeling a sense of pride in the new things that I was trying out. Thousands of pictures, hundreds of recipes, and two cookbooks later, I’ve reached a point where I feel a connection with fellow vegans & veggie enthusiasts and I love to share everything with my community!

So thank you, you amazing reader you, for gazing upon my blog and giving me something to post for! 🙂

Just joined your blog in my efforts to transition to vegan. Saw "Forks Over Knives" documentary and sat up and paid attention to animal products causing poor health. I didn't think I could give up half and half in my coffee and yesterday I bought soy creamer and I swear I can't tell the difference, so I think I'm on my way. Looking forward to recipes as I feel a little helpless in the kitchen right now, with a fridge full of tofu, tempeh, tamari and veggies that I don't know what to do with. But it's fun and challenging, and thanks for the great blog.

I love the documentary "Forks over Knives"! It really does change your perception of what is healthy and what your body needs. Thank you for coming to my blog and there are MANY recipes that can help you acclimate to your new diet. Just use the search engine in the side bar and plug in "tofu", "tempeh" or anything else you may need ideas for, and there should be some recipes for you.

Cheers! Jackie
