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!

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 »

A few examples would be Cassie, the dairy cow who was being retired from dairy (meaning, sent to slaughter), she launched her 1,200lb body… Read more »

Recent Eats

Of all the variations of the Vegan diet, I like the Starch Solution the most. I’m pretty sure I’ve done posts on it before… but the gist is – your body literally runs and thrives on carbs. Everyone knows that by now, I think! The Starch Solution is based off of the extensive research of… Read more »

The Food of Florida

I’m back from my week in Naples, Florida! I’ll do a couple posts about it… but this one will just be about the FOOD! I ate some pretty fabulous things over the week. I forgot to photograph some of it, but here’s some highlights. My snack on the plane. Dinner at Columbia Restaurant in St…. Read more »

Vegan Resources

First, a notice  – I am not putting any graphic images in this post. However, some of the videos and sites I am linking to will most likely contain graphic material. You’ve been warned!  So, I’ve had some friends (and strangers!) express curiosity about Veganism. Some, have even gone so far as to ask me… Read more »


You know what?  I love camping. Man, I really do love camping. I love the views, the sounds, the eats!, and oh.. the smells!  Clean dewy mountain air is an incredible smell.  The water there tastes like liquid heaven – and I hate water! I love hiking, and I love the prospect of seeing wild… Read more »
