Mangia Bene = Eat Good 

Hello! Welcome to my blog. I’m Gabriella and I’m a half English, half Italian (Pugliese) 29 year old that likes to Mangiare Bene.

I started Mangia Bene because I wanted to share my family recipes through stories. My blog has always had an emphasis on a vegetarian diet, but now focuses solely on plant based food. Why? For the Animals. For the Planet. For Health.

I have a degree in photography, which is a subject very close to my heart, but the Italian part of me just can’t shake off the urge to talk about food (mainly vegetables) all day long.

I’m the co-founder of Planted, a vegan food company who host pop up events and supply wholesale cakes + pastries to restaurants and coffeeshops.

I live in Brighton with my boyfriend Murray and our two kittens cats Eugene and Henri.

    Thankyou Elda

  2. Love the blog! Will definitely be trying out some of your wonderful sounding recipes.

  3. What a nice, homey blog! I’m in the process of cutting the meat and refined carbohydrates from my diet. (My family tells everyone that I’m “part Italian” because of my food preferences and the “part” of me that bulges over my belt! Oh, well….

    • Hi William, thank you! Glad you like it. Haha, yes Italians love their carbs! No meal is compete without some bread 😉 I’ve recently started eating gluten free pasta and now opt for spelt or rye bread, which my tummy is very pleased about. Ooh great, that’s exciting! If you ever need any tips on cutting out meat just send me an email 🙂
