The Tropical Vegan, also known as Theresa, is a vegan in her late-20s who lives in Townsville, QLD. She teaches sociology and anthropology. She rides a bike for transport, exercise, and fun. She crochets, and occasionally embarks on other crafty adventures. She grew up in New York state, sort of close to Canada, and had never even been on a plane until she was 19 and on her way to Thailand. Since then, she's also been to Australia (obviously), Ethiopia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany (sort of), and Hong Kong. She loves being in new places, eating good food, reading books, talking to interesting people, and doing things outside.
Theresa is married to Andy. Andy is a marine biologist who is very creative in the kitchen, has a big appetite, and hates wasting any food. Andy doesn't blog here (yet?), but he cooks a lot of the meals that are posted, he blog stalks, and every now and then he comments anonymously. He also reminds me to take photos of things for the blog, so he contributes in lots of ways.
Nacho in December 2007. Nacho is an adorable, grumpy, sweet, bossy cat who doesn't really like strangers or anything out of the ordinary in her space. In addition to cat food, Nacho loves to eat pumpkin (especially butternut), corn, green peas, oats, and nori. Nacho likes to spend time with her favourite blue mouse on a stick, she enjoys laying on top of important papers, especially if a human is trying to look at them/work on them, and she regularly walks on the keyboard of the laptop.
