”Follow your passions and don’t be afraid to dream big!
Verena Frei is the creator behind Frei-Style, one of the biggest vegan food bloggers on Instagram having clocked up almost 90K followers organically in under 2 years through her spectacular food photography and mind-blowing, delicious recipes.
Self taught in cooking, food design and photography, Verena drove enough traffic to her blog through dedicated organic marketing strategies that allowed her to quit her job and live 100% from her blog in less than two years after launching. Her mission is to inspire others to try new things, fuel their bodies with nutritious food and teach them how to appreciate the richness nature offers us.
