Bryanna Clark Grogan, Denman Island, British Columbia

Bryanna Clark Grogan is a female food hero because she has devoted the last 25 years to encouraging and sharing healthy vegan cuisine, ethics, food science and original recipes through her blog; Notes from the Vegan Feast Kitchen/21st Century Table and her many cookbooks.  From her small island home, off the west coast of Canada, she has spent months inventing and perfecting 'Buttah'...a vegan butter that avoids palm oil and animal products.  This has been a labour of love.  Now Bryanna is sharing her recipe freely on and By offering us a healthy, delicious and ethical alternative to palm oil and animal products, she is doing her part to halt the global demand for palm oil, and save critically endangered tropical rainforest and orangutan habitats. Bryanna is a vegan force of nature!
