Hello, and welcome to my humble space on the internet!
My name is Nada (pronounced Ned-a, and no it does not mean nothing in Spanish, it means dew drops in Arabic), and I’m 23, an aspiring chef, health foodie, fitness enthusiast and animal lover.
Originally Egyptian, I was born and raised in the island Kingdom of Bahrain, where I currently live and work (I’m an account manager meets PR maven by day at Obai & Hill).
I spent my university years in the UK between Nottingham and London which is where my wonderful foray into veganism and this blog actually started.
At the age of 12, I developed a distaste for meat and became a pescetarian. Although I was eating a mostly vegetarian diet, I was by no means eating healthy – my newfound dependence on starchy carbs and dairy meant my weight would continue to fluctuate for years to come.
About the Blog
One Arab Vegan is a blog that celebrates my passion for traditional Middle Eastern cuisine with a healthy, plant-based twist. Here, I share with you my ongoing journey towards optimum health, my love for fitness and all things hummus as well as my occasional musings and tips on leading a vegan lifestyle in a culture that places a strong emphasis on eating meat both religiously and socially.
