About Me and About Veganism


  1. lol,, very good smile.
    Huge places in Bharat to visit, so dont miss it,, even i need to see lot.

  2. What a beautiful blog you have! I'm so glad I found it, as I have a deep passion for India despite being of Hispanic origin.

  3. Simply amazing. Blog. Your story. Your ideas and thoughts. And the time you have put into creating all this. Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

    p.s. There's no 'follow' widget on the sidebar!

  4. Hi Catherine,

    I am Patrick from Taiwan, and I am running a website, VegTomato,, to advocate vegansim, which is a non-profit website, with some friends. Just found your great blog with so many tasty recipes and articles. I am wondering if I can have your permission to translate some of the recipes and articles into Chinese and post in my website to inspire Chinese go veganism. I will link back and credit it you.


    1. Sorry to get back to you so late; but yes, of course you can translate, use and post the content. =) Just do me a favor and abstain from posting the entirety of the fruits articles (small portions are a-okay). With any luck I'll be compiling it all into a book and I don't want to get into any copyright quibbles down the line.

      Good luck with your blog! Really excited to hear veganism's extending on out to China!

  6. My new hobby is to plant trees... And guess where I got the list of fruit bearing trees from ;)
    I have compiled a list of 44 fruit bearing trees from your blog. Thank you very much. I will let you know when I materialize on the whole list.

    PS: I would have never heard of the Budha's Hand fruit if not for your blog. Cheers!

    1. Could you please share with me where you bought your fruit trees from. I am especially interested in citrus.

    2. UAS (University of Agricultural Sciences) Bangalore is where I procured half of them from. The rest is from different parts of India.

  7. your blog is really beautiful. and you have a really exhaustive list of fruits and vegs! it's really awesome. thank you!

  8. I would like to know if Malabar tamarind either fruit or its pure form in any products such as paste, chutney, powder etc is available in the USA. Good information for us vegetarians. Thanks.

  9. Simply awesome blog, I never came across with such informative 'Veganism' on Indian commodities. Really worthwhile.

    Cheers!!! Keep Blogging

  11. Great blog and of course a great deal of work went behind this blog to cull out the best of the world's vegan delites. Thanks and keep it up....

  12. Hi, just read your star gooseberry page. Please add that in Guam we call it Eba. Thanks!

  14. Thank you for your amazing blog

  15. Superb Blog.. Tons of Thumbs Up

  16. Hi Catherine,
    I came across the wonderful books authored by you. Some of my friends from a rare fruits group wanted the first version of the book. Could you please upload it on a free website. Also, another friend writes book reviews online for plant books and would be glad to do a review for your books if you are ok with it.

    1. Hm, my comment didn't seem to appear from earlier. I just added an option to download Vol 1 on the Scribd link, but it's also below:

      Hope it works, and I welcome any book reviews. Thanks for the kind words!

    2. Hi,

      Where can I find the vol-2? The link here downloads a PDF which is corrupted.



    3. can you repost the volume 1 and volume 2 dropbox links again?
      volume 1 doesn't work and volume 2 text doesn't appear clear.

  17. Dear Catherine,

    Would you please be so kind as to provide me with your email address? I need to get in touch with you in regards with a business proposal.


    1. ...I'm hesitant, but it's

  18. Hello there Catherine

    You have a great blog with some great recipes and a great story. I am reaching out to you from a social platform for Indian/Desi food lovers. It is a community of About 300 flood bloggers with thousands of recipes and counting. You might find some fellow bloggers from India and abroad as well on our platform. It is developed by someone like you who is a Indian mom/wife/daughter who is passionate about technology and in need of new recipes. This platform is aimed at addressing the love for Indian food by creating:

    > A one stop shop for all Indian food related information.
    > Create a democratic platform for home cooks to get noticed, appreciated and rewarded.
    > Share the creative ways people are exploring Indian food - In fact going by number of Indian food blogs it’s quite evident that the real fun in Indian food is happening in the kitchens of Indian homes and not in star restaurants & cooking schools. Therefore, we also want this to be a platform for home cooks to get together and share ideas. We believe this platform would truly democratize the Indian food blogger community and give an equal opportunity for everyone to succeed.

    The current services are just a beginning and we will be adding additional functionalities that will truly make this a global platform for Indian food.

    We hope you like what we are presenting and would join our growing community of Indian food lovers. Don’t wait and join today. Our facebook page is frequently updated with food related news and some exciting recipes so stay connected via facebook as well.

    If you face any challenges in registering please contact us at

    Thank you and looking forward to having as part of itsPotluck community.

  19. Hi,
    Mrs. Reddy
    Since you are vegan and talk about food and great recipes, i think you should go for HYDROPONIC FARMING. As you live in south india, get access to more knowledge about it from PUNE, MAHARASHTRA in person. You can get some info on your own through searching about HYDROPONIC farming and for more help you can access this site "".
    You can have your own farming without need of soil, maybe small business.
    Apart from that you may also like this link "", blogger is a british girl married to indian man. She also talk about her experience in india. May be you'll like it.

    Dear Editor, Author, or persons authorized to give copyright permission.

    I am writing to you to get the permission to use your articles in my book The Foodpedia Fresh Fruits and Vegetables books series and other books will follow, on the history of other items in the food world. That will help the people of the world to eat and stay Healthier.

    I care and I hope you care about passing on to the new generation to stay Healthier.


    I am writing these books to “give back” my knowledge to the next generation of people, all over this world. I am writing these books to educate the people about the advantages of eating “Fresh Fruits” and “Fresh Vegetables” and how they can help themselves to have a healthier body, and the foods that are not good for a healthy body.

    I got your name from the website. On the Fruit you wrote about. I have your name on the information that I used, so that you will get all the credit on it. I do not want the credit for your works. You’re the one that did all the research on the food items. I have to rely on you for all this knowledge and your researchers.

    I praise you for this, that is why I want you to get all the credit you put in to these articles.
    I have to rely on your help to teach and training our next generation to live healthier. Then living on all this junk food and all the chemical’s they put into the foods we eat today.
    That is why we are the product of this generation of obesity etc. We have to help our new generation to eat and stay healthier so they can have a better life, then being sick and overweight all the time.
    The world is changing and we have to change with it NOW for our kid’s sake.

    This is the 21st Century NOW, and we have to do something about it NOW!
    I am on a movement (mission) of caring and share to help, not to make the same mistake this generation and our pass generations has made, to help them live healthier lives better then we did.

  21. section 2
    But I need your help to get this mission (movement) going. I need your permission to let this happen, to use your research in food, to train and educate the people of the world to eat healthier.

    Remember the people will go to your website for more updates. Because you are always updating it, that I cannot do.
    Can you please e-mail the permission letter to authorize me to use your articles in my books (The History of Fresh Fruits. { Foodpedia The History of Fresh Fruit }) I have about 130 chapters of some of the fresh fruit used around the world, with over 5,000 color pictures, and about 5,000 pages).
    Can you please email { } with your permission to use your articles so we can help the this and the next generation to live and be healthier.

    Thank You Chef Paul J. Hintersteiner

  37. Really very informative info.
    Keep up the good work

  38. If only you could post info about where to get these wonderfull fruits and vegetabkes it will be more helpfull.if you could be a link between the buyer and sellers in those remote areas somehow it would be great! Otherwise if nobody buys the food, the grower stops growing it or doesnt sell it outside his area what is the point of reading about it.many f the foods you mention are not available in markts everywhere and we dont know where to get them. So supply is there but our demand doesnt get fulfilled.
