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! 🙂
