Hi Anna, where does your passion for cooking actually come from?
Ever since I can remember, I have been passionate about good food. From an early age, I was somehow drawn to unknown foods and exciting flavors. This developed into my great passion for cooking! I traded the lab for my kitchen more and more often and started developing recipes. And as I happily experimented with vegetables, fruits, and plant-based foods that were previously unknown to me, I realized: a vegan diet can be so diverse, wholesome, and most importantly, delicious!
On your Instagram account @anna.culina you share your passion for cooking with many food fans. What motivates you to be a blogger alongside your job?
I would have never thought that food would also connect people on a social media platform like Instagram. The endless inspiration, sharing with like-minded "foodies" and the opportunity to grow in a community is what makes this platform so special to me.
Sharing photos and recipes of my food creations challenges me in a very good way, has helped develop my skills and given me the chance to turn my passion into a career a little bit.
What do you look for in your diet?
For me, a healthy diet is not about doing without, it's about having fun! Let's have fun trying new things, cooking & eating colorfully, living more consciously and indulging in chocolate when we feel like it.
Have fun trying new things
...that's what we thought when we worked with Anna to develop our first 6 bowls from her favorite recipes in the summer of 2019. The result was a delicious, colorful mix with a common identity: healthy, vegan bowls, frozen and super easy to prepare in under 10 minutes. We wanted to offer a real and uncompromising alternative for those who don't always have time to recreate Anna's special recipes. Quality, taste and sustainability have been at the core of our shared bowls from the beginning.
For me, my passion for cooking starts with choosing fresh ingredients, so I never paid much attention to the freezer until now.
So I was a little skeptical at first about whether Every. would be able to turn my fresh bowl recipes into tasty frozen dishes.
However, the collaboration with Every. surprised me more than positively: The jointly developed bowls not only taste like home-cooked, but are also at least as healthy: Thanks to the shock freezing directly after harvesting, the nutrients are preserved naturally in the best possible way. So the nutritional values are even better preserved than with some vegetables in your supermarket, which are sometimes harvested weeks before you buy them.
And also in the visual comparison with my original bowls, the bowls can be shown. As a food blogger, it's important to me that food is also visually enchanting, because as we all know, the eye eats too!
