About Us

Committed to healthy recipes, holistic healing and a lifestyle of wellness – helping you find a higher purpose with food.

Food is true medicine for our bodies. An increasing body of research proves that plant-based, healthy diets and active lifestyles can prevent and heal illness, and help us become our BEST selves so that we can continue to do good in the world. Here at Vibrant Wellness Journal we aim to show you how to cultivate a life of truly vibrant wellness.

On my site you will find healthy vegan recipes based on my years of experience in kitchens: playing, researching, teaching, and hosting. I’m passionate about nutrition, a sustainable lifestyle, healthy movement, and sharing the foods, supplements, and products that can help you find your way along this path.

Meet the Chef & Educator


I’m Andrea Devon Bertoli, the editor and writer for Vibrant Wellness Journal and the author of the vegan cookbook Gettin’ Saucy: 38 Recipes to Make your Meals Sassier and Saucier.

Over the past decade, I have been writing on this site (in various iterations), and have been a contributing expert and recipe creator for Eat Drink Better, Green Living Ideas, and Care2. Blogging and sharing recipes and reviews makes me really happy, and I hope that you have found lots of helpful information here.

I am a passionate foodie: I love to teach cooking classes, make and sell fermented foods, share wellness information and reviews, and EAT ALL THE THINGS. I became an ethical vegetarian when I was 13, and continue to eat a mostly vegan diet to this very day (almost 30 years later!). I am the creator of Vegan in Hawaii, a resource for all things plant-based in the Hawaiian islands, where I’ve lived for about 20 years.

I’m also a surfer, a yogi, an avid reader and writer, a novice investor, global traveler, a sustainability activist, and a gardener. My primary job is with CleanTechnica, as the Vice President of Sales, and I work at our local coworking space as the marketing and media associate. Read and follow along on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
