Vegan Favorites

Don’t get excited, SweatyGirl is not coming back But, someone on a forum asked me recently what my favorite meat replacements are, because they were struggling with gout (ouch!) and wanted to try and wean off of real meat to help. I took the time to write out all my favorites, and I realized it… Read more »

Oh, hi!

Oh hey! Hi! It’s me! How are you? I’m good. I’ve opened up a new post here about a bazillion times, only to stare at the empty window and close it again. I just don’t have much to say! But I consider that a good thing! Winter is just so… everything… for me. Its my… Read more »

Daily Dozen

I recently read Dr. Greger’s book How Not To Die. It was really great. That guy is amazing, he has done so very much for the nutrition world and for FREE. Even all profits for his book are going to charity. He genuinely cares about people, about prolonging their lives, and enhancing their health. It’s… Read more »


Thanks for looking back at 2015 with me. What a year! It’s time to look ahead now! I’m not going to be making any resolutions this year. And I am not going to make any weight loss goals. Despite gaining weight over this past year, I feel like not obsessing over a goal, and not… Read more »

I’m thinking about real convenience foods like breads, wraps, condiments, cans of soups and sauces. I’m not saying everything pre-made is… Read more »

The Vegan Q&A

Despite the crickets on the blog here, I’ve still been getting quite a few questions about being Vegan on Instagram, Twitter, and in everyday life! One day, I won’t be so lazy and I will film a video (because talking is always easier than typing!)  but for today… let the typing commence! Here’s some of… Read more »

Roasted Garlic Bliss Pizza (Vegan)

This is not so much of a recipe… as an “idea”  for pizza toppings.  Though, if you treat it like a recipe and make this exact pizza – believe me – you will NOT regret it! Hands down, best homemade pizza I’ve ever made. What’s interesting, is that this pizza is half cheating, half way-too-much-work…. Read more »


Wow, it’s summer time. I’d love to say that I’m here with a fabulous recipe or some fun news to share… but alas, this is me we’re talking about it!  All I can offer you is a random photo dump from my phone… So if you’re interested in what I’ve been eating and doing lately,… Read more »
