What YOUR Health

The buzz of ‘What the Health’ has been (imo) amazing. So many people have become more aware of the food industry and are endeavoring to make better food choices for their health and the health of their families – and that my friends is GRRRREEEAAATTT! HOWEVER, many people are jumping on the vegan bandwagon without doing adequate research or exploring what options will work best for their bodies. And guess what that leads to – FRUSTRATION. When the frustration sets in you are no longer excited about the goodness of a vegan life and many often revert back to what they know – MEAT. I don’t want that to be your story, so if you are contemplating a vegan lifestyle determine what you wanna do because there are many levels to this ish… There are a few blog posts that

Let the Adventures Begin

Well, the team is packed, loaded and ready for take off. The last week as been action packed. And as I sit in the airport (hours ahead of schedule), I realize how tired and anxious I am. Over the last few days I think we ALL have experienced emotional highs, lows and all the twists in between; however, we wouldn’t trade it, at least I wouldn’t because it is bringing us closer to the manifestation of our #LeapOfFaith. In the last week we have celebrated my life day and lost our PopPop, have lived from our suitcases with various family and experienced the joy and sadness of goodbye… I am sure there will be lots of growth opportunities during this leg of the journey and we want to share them. My family and I want you to be a part

The Measure of Success

Who determines what a successful life journey is? Better yet, how do we measure a successful healthstyle? I know, I know, here I go with my questions (lol) in the opening sentence but if you don’t ask you leave room for misunderstanding and assumptions, right? And we don’t need assumptions and misunderstandings in 2017. For the sake of individuality, let us establish at the onset, that each person determines the success of their own journey and for this article, success will simply be abstaining from animal products. That’s fair, right? So how can one successfully abstain from animal products? READ!! Yes, reading is fundamental and essential to ANY success. Often times animal products are ‘slipped’ in to items and we are clueless. An example of this would be soap. Many people do not realize that there are numerous soaps made

Let it Go

How in the world does one go from having closets, dressers, baskets, and shelves to having ONE book bag, ONE carry-on suitcase and a COMMUNAL bag for five people. Well, this is the feat we are undertaking and it is proving to be an arduous task. We have sold, given away and thrown away so much, yet there still seems to be more. Where did all this stuff come from? How have we accumulated so much stuff??!??! Flipping through the contents of my life I realize that whether it is clothes, shoes, jewelry, dishes, cards, socks, COATS, etc… etc… etc… I have too much. And that is the honest truth. Of course at the moment of purchase, I am sure I needed whatever it was, but as I am trying to transition my life, this stuff seems like a weight

Spread Your Wings and Fly

Today, I sat down at work and realized – this will be the last Monday I walk through that door, sit at this desk and log in to work. The last Monday I will hear about a case of the ‘Mondays” and how the weekend wasn’t long enough. Today, marks the ending of so many things, yet the beginning of so much more. On August 8th my family and I will be spreading our wings and flying off to live abroad. A few years ago we had a family meeting and we all agreed that living abroad was something we wanted to do. After much exploration, lots of research, a few closed doors, countless prayers, numerous conversations and loads of planning (as best we can) we are off! I will not pretend that the journey, thus far, has not been

Lies You Tell

The other day I went out to brunch. Prior to going I checked out the menu for food options, you know I have a vegan preference, then compared their suggestions to some vegan sites I use and made a decision regarding what I wanted to order. When I got there, I could not find on the menu what I was looking for so I asked the gentleman behind the counter if my choice was an option. He said no and mentioned someone else having asked for the same thing. Anyway, I told him I was looking for vegan options and asked what bagel he would suggest that I could load with their ‘vegan’ hummus and veggies. His response: our bagels aren’t really vegan because we brush egg over the dough before baking. ME: ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?! (I had no idea

The FACTS of My Life…

Moving is never an easy task. And condensing your life to a suitcase and a carryon is definitely a feat. Yet, I think more challenging than those, is the realization that relationships will be left behind as you journey forward. Yeah, we make promises to keep in touch. Then life happens and everyone moves on and those promises to keep in touch are lost in the wind of living. So over the last few days I have been intentional about giving thanks for the relationships I have cultivated over the past years (and faithfully diffusing Gratitude, Joy, Frankincense and Idaho Blue Spruce). Some of these relationships are absolutely priceless and irreplaceable and it is my intention to ensure those around me who have touched my life in some way know it, so if life blows us to and fro and

Oh, Baby I Like it Raw!

I absolutely, and I do mean absolutely, enjoy my life as a plant-based vegan. This journey has opened the door for me to discover so much about food, health and ME! (It is always great when you can discover more about yourself, right?!?) For me this transition was never about anything superficial, it has always been about becoming my best self – YES, even through food. What we eat affects us on so many levels and as we realize this, what we choose to expose ourselves to will begin to change – on a physical, spiritual, emotional and relational level. As I reflect, it is amazing to me how that one decision has changed my life. Even helping me to overstand why changing what and how we eat can be such a challenge for so many. But who would I
