Radiant Rachels is founded by two besties with the intention to share their ridiculously tasty plant-based recipes. The two girls (Rachel Leung & Rachel Chew) are based in Vancouver, Canada, where they can be found hiking the North Shore mountains or wandering the aisles of Whole Foods. If you don’t find them doing either of these activities, the Rachels are in the kitchen working on and shooting a new recipe for their blog. If none of the above applies, you might find the Rachels “dying” and “crying” of laughter with each other’s company or eating bowl after bowl of cereal.
