 Hello everyone and happy holidays! This is my favorite time of year – it’s finally cold outside, there are lots of grey skies, and the possibility of snow makes every day a little more magical. Add seeing decorations and lights everywhere you go, and it just makes me...

Halloween is my second favorite holiday (probably due to all the black cats) and this year will be our first one as vegans. I was wondering what that would mean for trick or treating and parties, but found that like all other aspects of vegan life, there are so many aw...

Fall is such a beautiful time of year. We finally get a break from the summer heat, everything turns pumpkin spice and we can break out all the cozy sweaters and scarves we’ve been longing for since spring. From the crisp air, to rich beautiful colors, to the start of...

Our juicer finally arrived and we are so excited to start the next step in the vegan odyssey. Juicing is said to be a major key to restoring and maintaining health, and I am totally in. It’s also the easiest way to get extra fruits and vegetables down in one easy shot...

Hi friends. It’s a been a little while since my last post, mostly because I’ve been struggling. Not with veganism – that’s been amazing, but with my ongoing health odyssey/saga. I really thought I would be off my meds and running up and down the street by now, but I’m...

Since becoming vegan, I’ve been asked this age-old question so many times I’ve lost count (and it hasn’t even been a month yet). Thankfully I had researched the vegan lifestyle ahead of time and knew all the protein I will ever need can come from plant-based foods.  In...
