I am doing things a little differently for this post. I decided to do an audio recording of my Q&A instead of writing out my answers. I hope you take a listen, and please let me know what you think of this format!
This post was inspired by my fascination with other people’s morning routines; there’s something about them that is so revealing. I’ve been consistently doing this routine for about 9 months now, so I thought I’d share it with you all.
Vegan junk food… does such a thing exist? Why yes, of course it does. Have you ever heard of Oreos, Ritz crackers, or Swedish Fish? Yup, all vegan. There is a name for a vegan who eats a lot of this type of food, called a “junk food vegan.” It’s someone who eats a lot … More My Favorite Vegan Junk Foods
Two months ago, I wrote a blog post explaining my addiction to calorie counting. If you haven’t already, I recommend reading that first to give this one more context. I was still a devoted [closet] calorie counter at the time of the posting. However, I desperately wanted to stop because I knew it was doing me … More How I Stopped Calorie Counting
It was surprisingly easy to be vegan in Guatemala. With countless fruit/smoothie bars and locally-sourced, health-conscious places, I was rarely stressed about finding something to eat. It also helped that I was traveling alone. I would have felt bad dragging non-vegan companions to plant-based restaurants for every meal, but I had a great time … More Vegan in Guatemala

It is sleek, smart, and will cost you an arm and a leg. How it works: Insert the package of organic fruit/veggies (shipped to you by the company) … More Juicero: useful or excessive?
This post is about something I’ve kept to myself for a long time. I haven’t outwardly told anyone, not even close friends or family, about this thing I’ve been doing every day for the past few years. I’ve been too embarrassed to admit my weaknesses and anal retentive habits out loud. Even writing this now … More Letting Go of Calorie Counting

Whenever I’m unsure of what I want to make for dinner or am too lazy to try something new, roasted veggies are always there for me. Reliable, delicious, and versatile, there’s no reason … More The best roasted veggies in 5 steps
In recent months, I’ve been approached by at least five different people on Instagram asking if I’d be interested in becoming a health/fitness coach. They are mostly coaches for Beachbody (the company behind the P90X and Insanity workouts), while others are affiliated with different but similar companies. For this post, I’m going to focus on … More Why I don’t want to join Team Beachbody
