Hi there, I'm Brittany. I'm the chef, blogger, photographer, designer, director, and general mastermind behind TofuGuru.net. I'm an art student living in Boston, chasing a degree in photography, or maybe graphic design, or possibly web development.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What camera do you use (to shoot your videos)?

I use two different cameras: a JVC Everio for the majority of a video, and a Kodak zi8 for all of the macro shots. Both are HD with flash memory. After about a year of moderate use, I’m still in love with the Kodak zi8 – but the Everio and I have major relationship issues.

How long have you been a vegan?

I went vegan right after Halloween of 2006 (one last candy spree), I was 15 at the time.

Can you recommend any books for vegan newbies?

First, get your hands on a copy Vegan with a Vengeance (or any other cookbooks by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, for that matter). For general information and factoids, I’d recommend Vegan & Vegetarian FAQ (The Vegetarian Resource Group), and Becoming Vegan by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina. I also hear the Dummies Guide is pretty good.

Any advice for teenagers who want to go vegan?

Learn to cook. Can’t repeat that one enough. I’m lucky to have open-minded parents, who were fairly OK with the whole vegan thing when I first made the switch. But their support for my ‘alternative’ diet did not extend to cooking me alternative dinners. So be prepared to take charge of your own food preparation, don’t expect your parents to keep track of it for you. Also, most sane parents will have (valid) concerns about vegan nutrition and vitamin intake, so do your research before approaching them with the idea.
