Welcome to The Urben Life. Nice to meet you!
Hi there! My name is Jenna Urben and I’m the blogger behind The Urben Life.
The Urben Life was started in 2016 to share simple and delicious recipes, travel guides, attainable home decor, wedding planning tips, and more.
Today, it’s a space to encourage those dealing with food allergies, intolerances, and restrictions. I remember how hard those first few months can be. Think of me as your cheerleader! We can navigate managing our diet changes together.
On my blog, you’ll find approachable recipes that are always dairy-free and egg-free, that your whole family will enjoy!
I’m so glad you stopped by The Urben Life, and hope you’ll continue to come back and hang out.
Below are some frequently asked questions. Hopefully, this helps you get to know me a little better! If you have any questions, recipe requests, restaurant reviews, or post ideas, feel free to send me a message or pop in my inbox.
Why are your recipes allergy-friendly?
Both my husband and I are lactose intolerant an I have an egg allergy. In addition to that, I'm allergic to Penicillin, so I can't go near certain types of cheese. My lactose intolerance is so severe that I completely avoid dairy as if it were a true allergy. All of my recipes are allergy-friendly and some even vegan, usually with several ingredient substitution options!
Are you vegan?
I love developing plant-based meals. While I do not claim to be a vegan or vegetarian, I definitely prefer making veggies the star of a dish! I like to say I eat plant-forward.
Have you always lived in the DFW area?
Nope! I was born in California and have lived in different cities around Texas since I was a child. I attended UT Dallas and decided to stay in the area after graduating. My husband and I now live in the Dallas suburbs.
Top 5 favorite travel destinations?
