Editor’s note: Jessica Milan reached out to us and we were pretty amused with her blog Lookbook Cookbook – a one of a kind, well put together vegan recipe blog that uniquely uses edgy, sexy photography for each post. Fashion meets health – every recipe is vegan friendly, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and comes with a sexy twist (AKA a hot model). Her healthy recipes for sweets and drinks and the shots of some pretty damn good looking models won us over.
“My ‘day job’ is a photographer, I shoot fashion for the most part. So when I decided I wanted to start a food blog, I just thought it would be a really unique and playful twist to involve models in each photo,” says Jessica, the creator of Lookbook Cookbook. “Food and fashion are my two favorite things, as well as for many other people I know, and I think LBCB is among a small handful of sites to really merge the two, making it a lot different than your average recipe site. It features all vegan recipes, because I am one myself, and it’s just something I feel a lot better about promoting. I also want to prove to even the skeptics that vegan food can taste just as good as the real thing!”
Here’s an Everybody Is Ugly guest editor post from Jessica on how to make apple pie smoothies. Go ahead and indulge!
