The Minimalist Vegan is a person who is committed to doing what is essential in their lives and brings them joy and nothing more. They respect humanity, the environment, and most importantly, they respect themselves. Their demeanor is calm, down-to-earth, and centered.

The Minimalist Vegan, for the most part, is not scattered or unfocused. They’re not caught up in the “busy being busy” cycle. They’re not disconnected from where their food comes from. They’re not disrespectful to themselves, or the environment.

The Minimalist Vegan is a lifestyle. A lifestyle that promotes eating well and living mindfully. A lifestyle that we strive to live every day, and we’re here to help you do the same.

For a deep dive into this philosophy check out our book, The Minimalist Vegan: A Simple Manifesto On Why To Live With Less Stuff And More Compassion.


We’re Maša and Michael Ofei (M & M), a married couple currently based in Canberra, Australia.

In Michael’s words – “Maša is the health nerd (a certified health coach) and professional photographer of the team. You’ll find her crafting tasty vegan recipes, shopping for the best produce and taking gorgeous photos. Yes, one of her favourite things to do is shopping at farmers markets and finding the best organic products in health food stores. She loves the simple things in life and travelling.”

In Maša’s words – “Michael is the technical minimalist of the team. He’s passionate about stripping everything back to the essentials and finding the most efficient way of doing things to spend more time enjoying life. You’ll find him writing articles on simple living, as well as managing the technical aspects of the site. He also loves connecting and networking with like-minded people. He thinks that there should definitely be more minimalist vegan males in this world!”


We don’t have all of the answers, but you’ll struggle to find two people who care more about this lifestyle than us.

If you too would like to embark on the journey of a Minimalist Vegan lifestyle, join our newsletter below and we’ll share with you an article a week on living with less stuff and more compassion.

As an added bonus, we’ll also send you a copy of our One Week of Meals Cookbook to help kickstart your new beginning. We can’t wait to meet you!
