About the Green Living Spain team : )
Vegetarian, gluten free, living in Barcelona
Hello! I’m Charlotte! Last year I started writing down places to buy slow and eat green when I lived in Madrid, and then I thought, hey I could share these with other people, for all of Spain! That is how Green Living Spain was born 🙂 I truly love sharing the places I have found, from vegan restaurants to sustainable fashion shops, so I hope it helps you too. Wherever you are from, welcome! 🙂

Plant-based, Canadian, Blogger at dulceynatural.com
Heyo! I’m Daniela, I’m a Portuguese-Canadian living in Madrid and I am a mega-dessert lover (plant based desserts, that is!). I spend most of my time day-dreaming about desserts, scavenging for the best ingredients in the city and baking up a storm in my small apartment. At Green Living Spain, I’ll show you how easy it is to make vegan desserts, and find vegan ingredients and pastry shops in Madrid.

Hello! I’m Kathryn, and this was my first year in Spain. I spent it in Madrid, mostly discovering all the wild and wonderful ecological markets, restaurants and bars that south side of Madrid has to offer. Looking forward to another great year filled with more delicious food and more 🙂

Hi there! I’m Kim, a Venezuelan / former New Yorker / current Madrid dweller (phew! say that 5 times fast!) who loves food, dogs and cooking more than anything! For years I’ve been helping people make more vegan choices. You’ll often find me filming one of our videos in front of Madrid’s yummy vegan restaurants, exploring farmer’s markets or having a picnic in the park with my hubby and our two kids (who just happen to be dogs… but don’t tell them that if you see them 🙂

Vegan, Spanish and Chinese speaker, and human to a fluffy dog, Benito
Hola! After being born in the US but spending my entire adult life in London, I ended up in Barcelona, seeking the sun. While there, I ate in every vegan restaurant and 90% of the vegetarian restaurants (don’t worry, I documented my efforts and am writing a vegan guidebook to Barcelona), published my first book (a vegan travel guide) and adopted a dog, Benito, who speaks more Catalan than I do.

Hey y’all! I’m an American reared in California, cultivated in New York City, and now currently residing in Spain. I’ve been based out of Madrid since September 2016 and plan on staying as long as they’ll let me. Contrary to popular belief, Spain is very vegan friendly – if you know where to look. I comb the countryside for the best vegan food so you don’t have to!
