Hello, I’m Kaylie!
I’m a 23-year-old plant-based foodie, recipe developer, and food photographer. When I’m not soaking up the California sunshine, I spend my time creating, baking, and cooking in the kitchen. I believe good food is best enjoyed with friends, so this is my space to share it all with you!
You can find both sweet and savory recipes here. I share everything from tropical smoothie bowls to creamy mac-and-cheese and ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies. Whether you’re vegan, gluten-free, or just a lover of delicious food, please take a look around. There’s something here for everyone to enjoy!
My vegan story
In 2014, I stumbled across this little thing called veganism. “You mean there are people who willingly give up meat and dairy?” I thought while scrolling through vegan content. As someone who consumed a diet heavy in chicken, eggs, and yogurt, the idea of ditching meat and dairy was inconceivable for me. Yet, as I continued to research, I became more and more intrigued. I decided to try veganism for one week. That one week led to one month which, eventually, led to one year… and here I am over five years later.
Along my journey with veganism, I fell in love with plant-based cooking and baking. In 2016, I began sharing my creations on Instagram and started @purelykaylie. Since then, I have garnered over 165,000 followers and created the Purely Vegan recipe eBook. In 2019, I started the Purely Kaylie food blog to compile all of my tips, tricks, and recipes in one place.
That’s enough about me, let’s get to you! I want to say thank you for stopping by. I hope you’ll browse my recipes, take a look at my Instagram, or check out my videos on YouTube. And if you have any questions or comments, you can reach me here.
