Let me tell you a little about who I am…. I’m a 31 year old eco-conscious, organic-eating, fitness nut. I choose knowledge over ignorance, and thereby disagree with the statement “ignorance is bliss”. I’m a native Californian, specifically from Los Angeles, and love being outdoors in the sun. I’m a traveler, a daydreamer, vegetarian, an aquarius, and if I could just be a little more patient with learning the guitar than maybe I could call myself a musician too. I’m also pretty sure I just broke the cardinal rule of not starting every sentence with “I’m”, but then again, this is the “about me” page right?
At the age of 9, I decided, I wanted to go vegetarian. Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy. It took me 3 months of relapses to finally achieve that goal, and trying to explain why I chose to do something out of the norm caused turmoil at the school lunch table. I finally hit a moment, where it no longer phased me. It no longer evoked any kind of longing or cravings, and at that point, I knew I was done.
22 years later, with aspects of global-warming surrounding us, heart-wrenching animal welfare, health concerns and cancers seeping into lives, and disappointment that a large portion of society has become careless and disrespectful of the planet we live on and with those whom we share it with…..I decided to make my own realistic changes along the way, without turning my life upside down, and keeping my wallet happy in these harsh economic times. I hope my findings in sustainable everyday products, cruelty-free beauty, vegetarian-friendly recipes, etc, will inspire you to also become more aware, and incorporate similar changes in your own lifestyle, effortlessly.
