I am Melissa, a Boston transplant living in Dallas, Texas. Welcome to my blog! My husband Marcus and I are very into eating and living as healthy as possible to set a good example for our girls, Meadow (3) and Olive (2). I have been a vegetarian for 16 years, but in May of 2012, we both became vegan. We also eat almost no processed foods and processed sugars. Since changing our ways, Marcus saw his cholesterol drop 76 points in just 4 months. His asthma and allergies almost completely cleared up. We also feel better than ever. I started this blog in hopes to inspire others to live a more healthy life. You will find a lot of sweets on my blog because I love to bake. Most of the savory dishes are Marcus’s creations. I also have a passion for creating homemade healthy versions of unhealthy snacks. The blog is not really about being vegan. It’s more about adapting a healthier lifestyle in what ever way that may be. If you wish to contact me, you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you like my recipes, you may also enjoy my cookbook! It’s publishing on December 3oth of 2014, but you can pre-order it here.
