Work With Me

Plant-based living ain’t just for tree-huggin’ hippies.

In fact, veganism is a growing movement that more people are recognizing as KEY to protecting our health, environment, and future on this planet. 

Are you interested in going plant-based, but overwhelmed by all of the information (and opinions) out there, and searching for more focused support for your family?  You might understand the benefits of a plant-based diet, but how do you make it all come together into a sustainable lifestyle?

I am committed to helping families achieve the plant-based lifestyles they desire.  I want your family to get to a place where making plant-centric meals that are simple, healthy, and delicious become second nature, where you feel connected to the world around you through your dietary choices, and where your core values are reflected in your everyday habits. You should be so in love with your chosen lifestyle that you feel compelled to tell everyone else how amazing it is. 

I take pride in un-complicating and normalizing veganism, and making this a feasible option for families today, especially those with young children.  It’s not always easy to be vegan in a non-vegan world, but it doesn’t have to be difficult either as long you have the right tools, knowledge, mindset and support system — that’s where I come in. 🙂

 

People often decide to go plant-based:

  • To achieve a healthier weight
  • To prevent or manage chronic disease
  • To alleviate food allergies
  • To reduce their carbon footprint
  • To save the lives of countless animals
  • For better nutrition and tastier meals
  • To save money
  • To instill the above values in their children
  • To try something totally new

Whatever your reason, I’m glad you’re here.

We are born into a life where the Standard American Diet is the norm, and anything different is weird.  We live in a time where food is marketed to us from the womb, under the guise that “everything fits”, leaving us in a vicious cycle of food addiction, body obsession and poor health, while unknowingly damaging the planet, and its inhabitants.  We begin life not knowing why we eat the way that we do – and often, nothing triggers us to question our habits until we’re older.  But, then what?

I get it.  Complete lifestyle changes can be overwhelming.  Things like meal planning, food preparation, and understanding how to easily tailor recipes to meet your personal tastes and needs can be hard — without a focused commitment, the right resources, skills, and tools for success. There’s a sh*t ton of information and opinion out there (which can be both a blessing and a curse!).  We’re all human.  We often focus on an end result but are at a loss regarding how to actually get there.  And when we have kids on top of everything else?  Oy.

I’ve been where you are, so I’m here for you now.

 

My philosophy:

I meet you where you are. To make sustainable life changes, we need to 1) have a clear vision of what we want 2) be personally invested for more than one finite reason or goal and 3) make realistic changes that can be implemented strategically to avoid overwhelm.

Plant-based living is so much more than what you eat.  Hence, food and nutrition are not actually the things I focus on.  We’ll work on the social challenges associated with going vegan, too, especially with kids.   Most of all, I like to caution people that adopting a plant-based lifestyle will not only allow you to discover a healthier, happier version of yourself, but may also make you a more compassionate, present, and profound human being. It’s big stuff, yo.

A plant-based life can (and should) look different for everyone.  Some people may rely on getting their protein from non-soy sources, and some may need to avoid nut-based recipes.  Some may want to cut out animal-derived foods all at once, while others may want to try Meatless Monday and go from there.  There is no rule book to follow when you #goveg, so design a lifestyle you love, and you may have different needs even within your own family.  We’re always evolving and that’s okay (P.S. This is a judgment-free partnership).

I don’t count calories or prescribe meal plans, because this derails us from the big picture by shifting the focus to numbers.  Instead, I help you discover the general habits needed to design a well-balanced routine for your family that will make plant-based living feasible, enjoyable, and in alignment with reaching whatever goals YOU set.  Think of this more as life coaching!  Let’s #goveg first, and watch everything else fall into place.
