Who are we anyway?

Kim

I’m Kim. I’m a teacher, a certified plant based cook, and together with my partner in crime, my husband Carlos, doctor (MD) and online tech/filming fanatic, we're the creators and co-founders of brownble.com, the "My Brownble Online Program", and "The Roadmap" along with other cooking courses, and creators of The Brownble Podcast.

I'm also a premium content contributor for Vegan Outreach and the Food Choices Academy for Health Studies, and I'm on a mission to help people make more vegan choices, get back in the kitchen, cook delicious vegan meals, while falling in love with the simplicity of food and cooking again, while making kinder choices in and out of the kitchen. You'll be seeing and hearing me throughout the lessons, but Carlos is as much part of The Roadmap and what we'll teach you in this course.

Carlos

I'm Carlos, I'm a practicing medical doctor and the co-founder of Brownble. Aside from my private practice, and together with my wife Kim, I've co-created this course to help you on this quest to making more vegan choices or go vegan, in a way that is safe, responsible and with ongoing support.

You'll see and hear Kim in the videos and audios (she LOVES to teach), and I'll be behind the camera and in charge of overseeing all things health related when it comes to this course.

Praise for our work...

"I have learned so much from you! I appreciate that you are not the usual vegan preacher but rather a very genuine, down-to-earth mentor. One that knows how difficult it may be to start a vegan lifestyle, a person that anyone can relate to because you too have struggled with food and with society's stereotypes."

Helena

"The new roadmap looks absolutely beautiful, Kim!! All the time & effort that you & Carlos put into this is really apparent in the first few videos that I've seen so far. I can only imagine the work that this took, from all script/topic preparation to the things that had to be packed & taken along with you to do the filming!! Your beautiful season-appropriate outfits for each class, the beautiful, tranquil settings in that quaint little town of 12!, your beautiful puppies in the background!! I love it all!!!"

Annie

"You have definitely been of great help. It is comforting to know that there is a community of people i can relate to out there"

Sharron

"Such a great teacher´╗┐"

Lisa

"Dear Kim, when you talk about food, the aura of the environment around you is so divine that I really forget what I am watching. I really admire your caliber of doing various projects with that high level of precision and I love your passion for your work. Focusing on many things creates complexity and it actually calls for unshakable dedication to the cause and you have tons of potential for work"
