Welcome to the official Hippie Dust site!

My ย name is Alyssa and I’m currently a junior at the University of Washington in Seattle. After learning about the very serious effects that the meat and dairy industry has had on our environment, I decided to do my part and transition to a vegan lifestyle. Not only doesย the lifestyle change attribute to a lesser personal impact on our Earth and climate change, but a vegan diet can help prevent a plethora of health problems and illnesses, as well as help build a closer spiritual connection to our planet and the life that inhabits it. I was delighted to find that my transition to veganism was not only very easy, but also cost-effective. I am here to help others ease their transition into the lifestyle with simple, easy-to-follow and budget-friendly (even for struggling college students, like me!) recipes that are delicious and satisfying.
