Hello friend. I’m so glad you’re here.

We need to talk.

Have you ever contemplated trying a plant-based diet but then freaked out because you’re addicted to cheese?

Have you ever said, “I will never stop eating cheese or eggs. I would literally die!”

Have you ever spent days feeling:

  • bloated

  • uncomfortable in your clothes

  • frustrated

  • angry

Because of the foods you ate?

For years I would have to unbutton by jeans by 2pm when the bloating struck. My hands, face, etc. would swell up after eating certain foods. I spent hours feeling exhausted after eating. I would go days without going #2. (TMI but when you’re a mom, there is nothing to hide!) I was literally miserable for half the day, everyday, for years, and NEVER ATTRIBUTED IT TO WHAT I ATE.

…Until now.

After 15 years on a vegetarian diet, eating cheese from morning to night, we transitioned to a plant-based diet, eliminating ALL animal products. Yup. Cheese - gone. Yogurt - gone. Eggs - gone.

You guys….

I have never felt better.

I created this website because I don’t want you to get to the plant-based party too late. I want to encourage and motivate others, ESPECIALLY moms, to incorporate more plant-based foods and eliminate some or all animal products. I want to help you get started TODAY. Not in 5 years. TODAY, MAMA!

But who am i really?


I am a wife, mom of two toddler boys, dance teacher, professional marketer for a non profit, nutrition junkie, advocate for creating change, and dreamer.

I live to eat tacos. I am always moving my feet (that’s the tapper in me). I am constantly humming rhythms in my head. I am dreaming, daily, of having more kids or adopting animals. I believe in our inner power and I am passionate about positivity. Oh… and I’m an arthritis warrior.

I am confident. I am honest. I am real.
