Okay, time to spout out my favorite vegan grocery store favorites from this month. We are totally loving and welcoming in these three products into our home right now, within our plant-based vegan lifestyle. Our new favorite non-dairy milk, my old faithful green juice you’ll rarely find me without for a month, and my newfound […]
Looking for some ideas? Here’s a sample of a simple weekly vegan meal plan we just used for our family of four (two adults, a four-year-old and almost-two year old).

Why I starting taking my own photos for my blog with my iPhone (and why I shy away from stock photos)
Over the past couple months, my Instagram and Pinterest have grown by over 300%! My numbers are still small compared to some, but hey, I’m not comparing, because I’m headed in the direction I want to go! And that spells s.u.c.c.e.s.s. to me!!

Apps can be very helpful – useful information just a tap away. Of course, with each season of life my list of most used apps changes a bit! The following lifestyle apps are adding some serious value to my life right now. Enough value, they make me want to share them! Most of these […]
Summer is so fun. It’s warm, full of life and energy, and tons of adventure. Especially when you have kids! This past weekend we enjoyed time with friends, a spontaneous day trip, and never missed a beat with our packed vegan lunches. The thing about being plant-based is that it does require a bit of […]
First of all, I’ve learned it’s really… really… hard. This was my first full year as a mother and an entrepreneur. I started out planning to start a basic wellness blog and just see what happened. Then I realized it was a ton of work, and I had to make money somehow or […]
Change is good. I love change. Sometimes I think I like it too much – I’m always pushing forward to the next thing, reaching for more personal growth, bigger and better ways to do things, changes of scenery… It’s a quality in me I embrace and enjoy and I think it helps me find my […]
