Hi, I’m Jaime K! I’ve been cooking vegan and vegetarian food for over eleven years, and now focus on a vegan plant-based diet.
In early 2010 I began a life-overhaul, and Save the Kales! has been one of the greatest outcomes. What began as a blog focused on cooking has morphed into not only recipes, but getting deeply involved in my community and promoting kindness and self-acceptance.
Veganism first resonated with me in 2001 when my father died. While it has not been a straight line leading to present day (and I would change that in a heartbeat if I could), I finally felt comfortable identifying as vegan again in the summer of 2011. It has less to do with the word/title and everything to do with the ethics of compassion that extend themselves to every choice I make, not just in food or products purchased but in the ways we interact with each other.
I have formal education in Mass Communications and Interior Design. As for cooking, I am self-taught and continue to learn from writers, cooks and reading recipes like textbooks.
I strive to live a fun, compassionate life and it’s my mission to find beauty in everything. STK! is now a half-hour show airing in Pennsylvania, and online, as of May 2012. This blog features recipes, videos, books and blogs, art and insight. Living your truth is the fastest way experience joy. Cross my heart.
Save the Kales! is Jaime Karpovich based in Bethlehem, PA. You can learn more about my dedication and love for this town here.
Save the Kales! has been voted “Best Food Blog” in 2011 and 2012, and “Best Overall Blog” in 2012 by residents of the Lehigh Valley. Jaime K has done guest appearances for TV and web videos, helped spearhead the Bethlehem Food Co-op initiative, offered vegan-input and assistance in organizing Bethlehem Vegfest, and most excitingly hosts and produces the STK! half hour vegan cooking show. She is available for public speaking and freelance writing opportunities.
