Looking after the planet and your taste buds

Living a plant-based life is not a new thing for Arianne Schreiber from Yummify. She began eating healthy food, caring for the planet, and protecting all Earthlings as an animal activist at just 14 years of age.

One of the things that Arianne loves to do is turn recipes that omnivores love into vegan deliciousness. ‘I love sourcing produce every week and actually going to the farms where it’s grown. I love playing with the colours, and I love it when people really enjoy what I make and it makes them feel good.’

Arianne says that colour and the sense of fun are what people love about her food. ‘I do nearly everything gluten-free, so people with gluten intolerance get very excited as it’s both vegan and fun and they can eat it – seeing people get excited about my food is exciting for me!’

The lockdown was a challenge for Arianne – all of the retreats, events and festivals she usually catered for were cancelled but her home delivery service continued. ‘I added an organic fruit and vege box, along with staples and meal plans to my delivery service. I was so grateful to have my stall at the Mullumbimby Farmers Market continue every week too.’

Arianne said she’s had little time to rest. ‘We foodies never stop really. I feel grateful that I have such a wonderful customer base who allow me to deliver food to their houses every week. I have a new menu weekly that is sometimes very experimental.’

Arianne feels that the current health issues of the pandemic may mean we never go back to ‘normal’. ‘I think we know we needed a fundamental major shift in how we live and operate. How we consume has desperately needed to change, for all life on Earth. I hope the new normal is more in harmony with the planet we inhabit. I see lots of positive opportunities for each of us to reflect on and choose what is really important for our community and to make choices to live in a way that has a less damaging footprint. I think it’s happening everywhere.’

Next for Arianne is a vegan cheese range. ‘I am hoping to keep growing my little shop in the Arts and Industry Estate, and my little cafe, which feeds lots of locals plant-based meals. I also have a fun cooking show I’m developing.’

At the end of the month, Arianne is launching an event called Films For Freedom and Future – she plans to screen weekly a transformational independent film, accompanied by a three-course dinner at Yummify. Her first event is on 30 August.

Yummify also does a Wednesday ‘banquet’ style dine-in or take away option, offering cuisines from around the world. ‘We choose a theme and create four of five dishes to gobble up. This week it’s Italian, next week it’s Japanese, the world is our – radish!’

You can find Yummify at 12/74 Centennial Circuit, in the Byron Arts & Industrial Estate, or visit them online at:  www.yummify.com.au.
