in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

Hello! Welcome to in pursuit of more, the blog about living with just a little less. My name is Shira, and I created this space to share my love of food and minimalism with the intention of inspiring healthful, conscious eating that is both nourishing and accessible to all.

I sincerely hope you enjoy making these recipes – which are always vegetarian and mostly vegan – all aimed at maximizing satisfaction with minimal effort, expense, and ingredients. The recipes here are great for all levels of cooking skill, and won’t break the bank or the brain. Translation? The food here is simple, easy to make, and good for you. It also happens to taste really good too.

A minimalist at heart, my passion is to pursue a life of more while consuming less. You may find other tips and tidbits here on the practice of minimalism and letting go – in order to maximize our most precious commodity: our time. Living with less ultimately means making more room for more meaning, for more joy, for more ideas, and for the people in our lives that matter most.

I live and work in Vancouver, Canada, with my husband and two daughters. By day I can be found working on the business I co-founded with my best friend, and by night I’m usually running, cooking, gardening, reading, or purging the house of clutter.

To print the full list of regular items I use, see my pantry list here.
