Simple & proven ways to be healthy.
I started a vegan-”ish” diet when I gave up red meat, pork, poultry, and dairy back in 2007. I call myself a part-time vegan. I feel great and I also feel good about the choices we make as a family because it not only benefits our health, it also helps prevent diseases such as cancer, Parkinson's Disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s – - diseases that all run in my family.
I write about easy ways to incorporate healthier habits into your daily life and ways to increase your happiness - to find balance and perspective.My hope is that you leave this site with either a newly learned skill, an idea, or a feeling of confidence or encouragement.
My journey includes focus on a higher level of health and wellness, not just physically but emotionally and spiritually. I provide simple tips and tricks, hacks that have helped me. I got healthy by following a whole food, plant-based (WFPB) Diet, so I also cover easy ways to incorporate healthy eating into your life.
My hope is that you leave this site with either a newly learned skill, an idea, or a feeling of confidence or encouragement. I aim to help others focus on their health as a foundation for building their ultimate life.
What you’ll find here:This blog covers a lot of topics relating to living well and living simply, but these are some of the subjects you’ll find me writing about most frequently:
To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. Buddha
Did you know? Being plant-based also enables us to do our part for climate change.
Read the Blog for more information and recipes about all things health.
"My #1 goal with this blog is to help people feel empowered to change their lives for the better. I intend to share things that inspire, that encourage, and that make life better without making it more complicated."
A WFPB diet is not necessarily a set diet — it’s more of a lifestyle.
Plant-based diets can vary greatly. Nonetheless, the basic principles are the same in most variations:
Find some way to keep moving -- NO MATTER WHAT.
No excuses -- move past that now to accountability. Once you stop moving you die, so find some way to embrace movement and run with it. For your health.
Find something, anything that
works with your body and your schedule.
Make a commitment to
self-care for both body and mind.
Get out there and do it!!
Every single day. No matter what.
After selling professional skincare to dermatologists and plastic surgeons,
my ex-husband and I opened a medi-spa offering laser hair removal, Botox, permanent makeup and other minimally-invasive procedures.
This experience enables me to offer insight into the many cosmetic options available today.
So, yea. I get discounts on treatments but I promise to share the inside scoop! In fact, I show before and after photos, tell you whether it hurts and how much I (hopefully!) love the results.
I call it out our Weekly Woo. We all need a little more shouting for joy in our lives!
Each week I'll send you 3 things I've been loving, trying, eating & reading: health tips, hacks, books - Three Bullet Thursdays
Here's What You Will Get:
Every Thursday, I send out an exclusive email with the three coolest things I’ve found (or explored) that week. It could be cool stuff in Montana (our new home state), or hip things in Evergreen, Colorado where we used to live (and we still have a vacation rental property). Or maybe even fun stuff from Sarasota, Florida where we once lived (for like a minute).
It might include tips on following a Whole-Food Plant Based (WFPB Diet), my favorite Buddha quote, TedX Talks, gadgets, books, articles, life hacks, or some frugal living tips. Or it could be an awesome vegan recipe from Vicki Chelf, best-selling cookbook author and 40-year veteran of veganism. Who knows?
All designed to help you feel happier and healthier over 50!
And if that’s not enough, every week I include my favorite “Silly Video of the Week” in every newsletter. So make sure you look down in the post-script of each newsletter! I’m addicted to funny videos, and I believe it’s important to laugh as much as we can.
