PLANTS = HEALTH = PEACE

Welcome to my vegan blog!!

Why Vegan?

Four years ago, my husband and I adopted a whole food plant-based diet. At the time it was solely for health reasons but It quickly became a lifestyle

choice that felt spiritual in the knowing

that our food choices came without suffering of sentient beings. More over, we were making a profound planetary difference every time we sat

down to eat.

A Deeper Connection
Becoming vegan provided me with a massive shift - mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Within weeks I felt more energized, less inflammation (I'm jogging again!) and a strengthened immune system.  Moreover, my reverence for all living beings has grown exponentially.  I'm just way more AWAKE to the incredible miracle of nature and all she provides in abundance.  It's the least I could do to support her in return. 


This Land is Our Land

For me eating plants is more than just a way to get healthy, it's a way to profoundly connect with nature  and cultivate appreciation for our beautiful planet.  A daily rainbow colored plate of fruits, veggies, beans, seeds, grains, herbs, nuts and sprouts is a reminder of how plentiful and supportive our mother earth really is.  And a reminder to do what we can to sustain her.  

"What do you eat?"  
I get asked this all the time and it's honestly one of my favorite questions to answer.  What do I eat?   Well….


Let's start cooking!
