A minute with Zoe Samce Vegan Nutrition Health Coach & Vegan Cook


Where do you live?
I am living in Larnaca with my partner and our fur babies..!!

What did you have for breakfast?
Homemade pancakes with fruits and hazelnut praline (vegan, super-tasty and filling!!)

Describe your perfect day
When I am experimenting in the kitchen and discover new tastes and share my cooking!! Then I would create new episodes for my channel, communicate with people, exchange experiences and opinions and get help and support to discover and accept the true self…!!

Best book ever read?
I can’t pick one..! I think each one is a piece of the whole puzzle, called Zoi (life)! I love criminal stories and I also love vegan cook books. I love books talking about love, peace, our inner self, about our soul, about illnesses which are coming from the unconscious part of our mind and force us to heal deeply our own self.

Best childhood memory?
Waiting for Santa, the smell of Christmas cookies and the magic of Christmas.

What is always in your fridge?
Plant-based milk

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?

What’s your spirit animal?
I think it is a guinea pig! They are social animals but independent. They love their own space but if they love you, they love you deeply. Also they express their excitement loudly!

What are you most proud of?
Overcoming my past self and becoming more mature. I am also proud of my fur babies when they heal themselves deeply and also I am proud when they learn new things and show new communication skills. This probably will make me cry!

What movie scene has really stayed with you?
When the boy in Wonder asks his dad if he is ugly because no one wants him due to his unusual face even after many surgeries. His dad tells him no, he is not ugly, the world is ugly! Touching story!
It shows how the world rejects a beautiful young soul due to his face. It also shows people’s hypocrisy, who want everything to look similar, beautiful and ethical but neglects the essence of things and proves we are the exact opposite of what we like to show.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
I would like to meet Joaquin Phoenix because he starred in Joker in 2019 which I really liked and showed the hypocrisy of the world we are living in…!! And because I like police cases and psychological thrillers. Also, I admire Phoenix for his actions concerning animal rights.

I would also like to meet Robin Williams, a very likeable countenance and his story shows that usually people who are suffering deeply and have mental strength make others laugh and feel good.


If you could time travel when/where would you go?
I try to live in the ‘now’ and not lose valuable moments which will never come back.

What is your greatest fear?
The more we focus on fear, fear grows and materialises.

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?
No matter how much you fall know there is always the sky. At every bottom, there is a deep lesson to get closer to our inner self!

Name the one thing that would stop you dating someone

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would leave hugging my animals with people who have deep love, peace and gratefulness in their soul.
