This is not the greatest meal in the world, this is just a tribute!

Couldn’t remember the greatest meal in the world, no no, this is just a tribute! Just a little Tenancious D humor for ya: Right, so it’s Valentine’s Day weekend, and we are making a tribute to the greatest Italian meal in the world! AKA, some pasta and veggies. I found this Creamy Vegan Garlic Pasta With Roasted Tomatoes recipe from the Minimalist Baker. It sounded like the perfect dish to make as our Valentine’s Day […]

Food I Pack For The Day

Keeping up with my new year’s resolution to stick to the Nutritarian Diet, I am actively adjusting how I eat in order to pack in ALL of the nutrients everyday. Or at least most of them. And what timing this is as I am currently recovering from a bit of a head cold. Just stuffed up sinuses so nothing major, but a majority of my coworkers are getting hit with the flu. Either I picked […]

Eliminate 10 Items Resolution #2

I really wanted to address the current situation with the purge of animal welfare documents from the USDA site, but for some reason I can’t bring myself to do it (still can’t grasp the absurdity of it all). All I will say is that so much cruelty goes unseen and to do away with those documents that so many organizations depend on to protect animals is appalling. However, the single most effective way to end […]

Calories?

Although I don’t count calories, I have been curious lately how many I’ve been eating. When I heard about other female vegan bloggers/vloggers and how many calories they consume on a daily basis (mostly in the 2000+ range!) I became intrigued. Wow! Can they really eat that much? Do I eat that much? And we’re talking some fine fit ladies here so I was curious to see where I fell on the spectrum. So on […]

How To Remove Meat From Your Diet (Slowly)

I often get asked how one even begins to start removing meat from their diet. It can seem overwhelming. The diet is rather simple but shifting the mindset from a Standard American Diet to a plant-based one can seem complex for a lot of people. I want to show you how easy it is to make the change. First of all, you need to determine your motivation behind this decision to remove meat. Is it […]

Eliminate 10 Items Resolution #1

One of my goals this year is to live more simply by reducing household items that take up space and don’t provide me much value. As I get older, I can’t stand having clutter around. It seems to add more and more stress to my life. I have this undeniable urge to purge. So this year I have resolved to removing 10 items a month from my life. This includes trashing, donating, selling (like on […]

New Year, Better You

I can’t believe it’s almost 2017! What are you doing to ring in the new year? We have some wonderful friends coming in to town to help us celebrate! We plan to go to a local Bar & Grill that has a great elevated patio that looks down upon downtown Denver so we can enjoy the fireworks without all the frenzy (we’re old like that, okay?). Among the celebrations I have been thinking of my […]

“Super Immunity” Book Review

As mentioned from my previous post about joining a women’s health study, I received a free copy of the book Super Immunity: The Essential Nutrition Guide for Boosting Your Body’s Defenses to Live Longer, Stronger, and Disease Free by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. It was an excellent read and has added a new layer of evidence for me that the plant-based diet is the only diet we should have. The book is focused on micronutrients (vitamins, […]

Nutritarian Women’s Health Study

The time has come to share my exciting news! As you may know, I initially transitioned to this lifestyle for my health. I really just want to live forever. Is that too much to ask for?! But with things like heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, breast cancer, and Parkinson’s disease all running in my family, my risks seem a lot higher…. Or are they? Apparently, regardless of your family history, these things can still […]
