About alex

The Hippy Chickpea was born on Instagram, after realising my interest in plant-based nutrition and health, and my goal to pursue this in the future. I wanted to share how easy it can be to adopt a vegan diet, especially as a student, and that it can be both delicious and healthy. It wasn't too long until I realised there were so many other aspects of my life and interests that I wanted to share and had been out of touch with for so long - and knew that through social media I could make a creative outlet for myself, and a place to connect with other like-minded people.

I have slowly began reaching out to the creative part of me that I've lost over the past few years, due to some difficult times in my life. One of the things i've rediscovered is my love for writing, and so, on the 1st of January 2018 this blog was published.

I hope you enjoy this little creative space with my recipes, travels, photographs, thoughts and musings, and hope to maybe inspire you to rekindle the artist that you are inside.

Thank you for reading, and hope you decide to stick around and follow my journey.

Oceans of love,
