Veronica Patenaude (@LowFatVeganChef)

Veronica PatenaudeVeronica Grace Patenaude is a self taught at home “chef” and photographer who focuses on promoting an oil free and low fat vegan approach to a whole foods plant based diet and lifestyle. She honed her skills in the kitchen day after day from testing oil free vegan recipes out on her husband, family and friends. Most recipe books and restaurant foods are not vegan and too oily and high in fat and many modifications are needed to tweak things in the right direction. She decided enough was enough of modifying and altering existing recipes, and started writing down and photographing her own to share on her blog, LowFatVeganChef.com, and writes her own recipe ebooks now.
