Sonia 原本是個體重過輕、患有飲食失調,身體不太好的女孩,後來在「vegan lifestyle」的嘗試之下,不但為她開啟了生命的美好道路,還經營起自己的美食 IG:soniasvegankitchen。現在 Sonia 看起來陽光健康,而且充滿正面的力量,她說,一切的改變都是因為這個「最棒的決定」。

托 Sonia 的福,Taiwan IG Show 也國際化了!因為她 6 歲就離開台灣到奧地利生活,所以使用英文完成專訪。本文為中英對照,歡迎大家把這篇文章分享給世界各地,想要擁有「更美好生活」的朋友們 🙂

請跟讀者們介紹一下自己

我叫 Sonia Graf,是個生活在奧地利的 17 歲女孩,我的媽媽是台灣人、爸爸是奧地利人。目前我還是個學生,不過今年 6 月就要畢業了。平常的興趣是彈鋼琴和吉他,也很喜歡唱歌、烹飪和烘焙(當然是純素的餐點)..等。

My name is Sonia Graf and I am a 17 years old girl living in Austria. My mom is from Taiwan and my dad is Austrian. I am still a student but I will be graduating this June! I love to play the piano, play the guitar, love to sing, to cook and to bake.. (I only cook vegan food).

IG 對你來說的意義是什麼?

IG 是個相當好的平台,可以在上面分享所有我做的純素餐點,還能告訴大家純素餐點有多美味,而且是沒有限制、不受約束的!我想為全世界的人示範,吃素是很健康而且相當有趣的。

IG is a platform where I can share all my vegan food so I can show people that vegan food is indeed very delicious and not restrictive. I want to show people from all around the world that eating vegan is healthy but not boring.

攝影/素食對你來說的意義是什麼?

想要分享我的素食之旅,食物攝影是個很簡單、很好的方式。透過攝影,可以分享當個素食者有多棒,而且在植物性的成分之下,可以創造的東西是相當豐富的。

成為素食者對我來說的意義很多,我相信吃素是對人類最健康的飲食方式,還能讓地球、資源和所有的動物更好。這是讓世界更美好、讓人們更幸福的關鍵。

Food photography is an easy way for me to share my vegan journey. A great way to share how easy being vegan is and how many things you can create with plant-based ingredients.

Being vegan means a lot to me. I believe that eating vegan is the healthiest diet for human beings. Also does being vegan save the planet, our resources and also many animal’s life. It is the key to a better world with better human beings.

   

Sonia 的招牌水果燕麥粥,她說:「早餐吃燕麥、午餐吃燕麥,那晚餐何不也吃燕麥呢?」

請描述一下你眼中的台灣,為什麼會這樣形容呢?

台灣是我出生的地方,也是我的故鄉,六歲之前美好的童年歲月都在台灣度過。台灣是個非常美的地方,還有很多親切的人,在這裡有許多很棒的回憶。

Taiwan is my birthplace so therefore my hometown. I grew up in Taiwan until I was 6 yeas old so I pretty much spend all my childhood in Taiwan. Taiwan is a very beautiful country with even more beautiful people, it’s a place filled with lots of good memories.

請簡單介紹你的攝影風格,為什麼喜歡這樣的風格呢?

我喜歡把素食最美好的樣貌透過攝影紀錄下來,利用飽和鮮豔的色調將蔬果漂亮可口的顏色呈現出來。我也樂於將不同的食物組合在一起,去創造出更多不同的照片,所以我的作品總是在變化,看起來豐富有趣。

I like to take photos of food that makes vegan food look the best. I also like my photos to be very colorful to show all the beautiful colors of vegetables. Also do I love to mix different foods to create different photos that are never the same so it doesn’t get boring.

   

跟大家介紹一下使用的攝影設備、軟體..等一切相關的工具吧!

老實說,我沒有使用任何特別的設備,唯一的拍照器具就是我的 iPhone SE 和 Instagram 的應用程式。「良好的光線」對我來說是攝影的首要條件,如果光線不好就無法拍出好照片,好光線則能讓食物看起來好吃 100 倍!

To be honest I don’t use any special equipment. The only thing I use is my iPhone SE and the Instagram app. The most important thing for me is to have good lightening. If the lightening is bad, the photos will turn out bad. Goo lightening makes food look 100 times better!

可以談談你吃素的機緣嗎?

我在 2015 年 9 月 2 日成為素食者一直到了現在,那時候是出自於道德的考量,因為我相當愛動物,覺得他們也是生命,不應該受苦。在吃素並且讀了許多相關書籍之後,我開始學習如何透過素食獲得好處與健康,還有對環境所造成的影響。

決定吃素前,我飲食失調、體重過輕,而且身體不太好,每當我吃完肉,總是覺得不對勁。所以我嘗試了素食,把焦點放在尊重動物的生命,而不是熱量,於是我成了 vegan(純素主義者)!現在,我自在地吃,不再感到不對勁,同時動物們也自由了!

I went vegan on the 2nd of September 2015 and haven’t gone back to eating normal since then. I first went vegan for ethical reasons, because I love animals and think they have every right to live a life free of suffering. But after being vegan for a while and reading many books about veganism I started to learn about the health benefits of a vegan diet and also about the effects of a vegan diet on the environment.

I first went vegan when I was having an eating disorder. I was very underweight and not happy with my body. I was sick of feeling guilty after every meal I had. So I tried out veganism and started focusing on saving animal’s life and not on calories. That’s how I went vegan! Now I eat as much as I want without feeling guilty and helping animals at the same time!

請用一具話告訴大家吃素有多美好。

純素是我生命中最美好的事情。成為素食者讓我快樂、維持正面樂觀,讓我相信每個小小的改變都能改變世界。

Veganism is the best thing that happened in my life. Being vegan makes me happy and stay positive and makes me believe that every small change can change the world.

有想再跟讀者們多說些什麼嗎?

每個人都必須嘗試「vegan lifestyle」,也許一開始會有些困難,但是這絕對值得去做,不管是為了自己、動物或是地球,這將會是你生命中最棒的決定!

I just want to say that everyone should definitely give the vegan lifestyle a try. It might be difficult at the beginning but it’s worth it and helps the earth, your health and the animals. It’s the best decision you’ll ever make in your life.
