I am Melissa, a Boston transplant living in Dallas, Texas. I am a mom, wife, vegan, cookbook author, yogi, lover of almond butter and a Disney fanatic.  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, Olive (4) and Meadow (6)


You will find a lot of sweets on my blog because I love to bake. This is my most favorite cookie recipe.   Most of the savory dishes are Marcus’s creations. This is his most popular recipe.  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 work with me, you may contact me at I can provide a copy of my media kit upon request. If you like my recipes, you may also enjoy my cookbook!  You can order it here. I am also working on a second cookbook due out in Sept. 2016.

  1. Hi Melissa. I really enjoy your site. I have a question for you…..I am thinking about getting into juicing. Which one do your recommend?


  2. I have been enjoying your blog this summer. I wanted to take a minute to say thank you. I look forward to all your emails and enjoy Facebook also. I love to eat well and make my own food. Your recipes are fresh new ideas for me I have made just about all the muffin recipes I freeze them and enjoy one in the morning with my cappuccino . Keep blogging!
    Thank you

  3. Hello! I am a big fan of healthy and clean living, and I am a large supporter of what you and your blog are doing. I am a current student, and eating healthy as well as cheaply is a priority for me personally. I will have to personally try your juicing methods and recipes! Have a blessed day!

  4. Hi Melissa…. Thank you for all the great recipes! Do you and your family eat out? What types of restaurants do you go to ? Thank you!

    1. We rarely eat out, but when we do, it’s either Thai food, Indian food or the local vegan restaurants. We also like to eat a Whole Foods since ours has an amazing lunch section.
