Hello. I’m Lucy and I live in Skelmersdale. I made the choice to become vegan in 2016 and it is one of the best things I have ever done. When I’m not in the kitchen, along with my husband Chris, we do our best to raise our little humans to be independent, kind, earth-aware people.
Gracious Grub started around the family in my home kitchen in 2017. I could see people looking to make more plant-based choices in their diet but not having the know-how, time or money. I could also see how events are catered for, often using mass produced cheap food and I wanted better for people spending their hard-earned money on the people they care about at important events.
Where did the name come from?
Gracious, because plant-based food is a more gracious way to eat:
for the benefit of animals, the planet and people who face hunger
it is kinder to our bodies as generally people consume more animal products than is actually 'recommended'
it is cooked with care
Grub, because I wanted to dispel the impressions people have that it's all fancy new grains and a bit weird… it's mostly food you probably already eat just cooked up a bit differently!
