And so it begins…


About eight months ago, my 15-year-old twin girls came home and announced they wanted to be vegan.  They watched some horrifying documentary at their high school (which ironically is in a small, farm town) and decided they could no longer eat meat.  I was on board.  I was 2 1/2 years cancer-free after a battle with triple negative breast cancer; and I was ready to make some life changes. I frequently thought about changing my diet, and eating healthier.  I was working out, and feeling better.  This seemed like a logical next step.  Little did I know that their announcement would change not only the way I felt about food, but the way I felt about everything.  019_19.jpg

This is my story– what I have learned, what I continue to learn, and most important…why any of it matters.  It will not be full of recipes, or a bunch of how-tos. There are tons of great blogs and sites for that.  It is just a journey – why I am doing it, what I learn, what I try, and how I keep going after I fail.  If you just want to know how to get started, especially with kids, this is for you.  I don’t have a medical degree. I am not a scientist.  I am a real person, on a real mission to find a way to leave a lasting mark in a good way when I leave this beautiful planet, even if it is small.  I also hope my children learn to do the same because of me.

Join me in my quest to find ways to simplify, be healthier, and just live a more meaningful life.  Enjoy.
