vegan love

I am a full-time live-aboard cruiser currently based in the Canary Islands. I passionately believe in provisioning and preparing nourishing, nutrient-rich, mood-enhancing foods to support the active and emotional adventure of living at sea and crossing an ocean. I know it is achievable because all of the recipes and knowledge that I have learned over the years, come from the experience gained in my very own Small Vegan Kitchen onboard my sailboat. I feel there is a need for up-to-date, relevant and science-based information to help cruisers and sailors make informed choices when it comes to provisioning. Through Webinars, Workshops and Coaching, I share how it is possible to prepare delicious nutrient-dense food in the smallest of kitchens, with minimal equipment from wherever you are sailing around the world. When I join the dots, I see how working in the production side of the Food Industry, whether it be production scheduling, auditing, R&D, or sourcing, has given me a solid foundation in provisioning, and recipe planning.  ​My experience as a Business Coach means I can successfully help people gain confidence in the galley.  With regards to nutrition, I will be certified at the beginning of 2024 in Plant-Based Nutrition course from the University of Winchester and have an ITEC Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology certificate. I am an experienced sailor, having accumulated many thousands of nautical miles, cruising grounds include have cruised the Western Mediterranean including Morocco, The British Isles, Atlantic France, Spain and Portugal, Eastern Atlantic Islands, Caribbean and New Zealand.

"It has been great working with Sarah from Small Vegan Kitchen. She provided some excellent webinars for our Pacific Rally participants to share her tips on provisioning, and cooking healthy and nutritious meals for sailors.


Her content is creatively tailored especially for sailors who may be using limited equipment in a small galley.  


She is very friendly and helpful and happy to go out of her way to share her passion for cooking on board and ensuring our members have an enjoyable experience with food at sea.  I'd highly recommend using her services".
