Hi, I’m Olle. Welcome to With Olle – a recipe/training/everything blog with a growing number of plant-based recipes. My goal is to inspire you to take on more plant-based foods in your diet, as well as a more active lifestyle, without feeling deprived at all. The recipes are great for meat-eaters as well, and most of them can also be served to picky kids (I let my son taste almost all of them).
I’m no cook and no photographer so all meals and photos are self-taught and the result of hard work and a lot of testing.
In 2014, I started my own company Dosito, to be able to work as a freelance web developer. At the time, my wife, our son and I were living in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It was here that my fondness for cooking really started. I believe it has a lot to do with all the flavours and spices that are used on the Indian subcontinent.
Prior to moving to Bangladesh, we spent almost two years in New Delhi, India, and we were then vegetarians. When moving to Bangladesh we had a discussion and we couldn’t really find the reason why we didn’t eat meat, so we went back and included meat in our diet.
In August 2015 the whole family moved to Hong Kong, and as a new year’s resolution, we said that we should go the entire 2016 on a plant-based diet. The decision came naturally after we had a lot of talks and discussions with my wife’s sister, who has been eating plant-based foods for a long time. I really embraced this and started to search and read a lot about plant-based recipes, nutritional values and how to prepare different plants in different ways. At the same time, I also decided that my lifestyle was a bit too sedentary (as a web developer I’m literally in front of the computer the entire working day), and started to read up on different workouts and workout plans.
2017 began with me having some down time on the freelancing so I came up with the idea to collect all the information I had read up upon regarding plant-based foods and workouts and share it with all the people who wanted to read it. Since I’m a web developer I started to develop it as a project for my freelance company, and in March 2017 witholle.com saw the day of light.
