Camping Season + Tin Lid Hat Co

Camping Season + Tin Lid Hat Co

Today I want to talk about two things I’m incredibly excited about: camping and the Tin Lid Hat Co. I can’t believe I’m already seeing back to school ads everywhere! It seems like just yesterday my little one was getting out of school and we had the entire summer ahead of us. While I’m a bit sad that the summer is starting to give way to talk of cooler temperatures and earlier bed times, I am excited for what the rest of the summer has in store. I have to admit that camping with a baby has been a bit of an adventure....

Finding the Right Substitutes with the Right Apps

Most people who contemplate going vegan and aren’t forced to go on the diet because of medical conditions are often hesitant to do so because of the idea of going vegan seems restrictive. After all, there are so many surprising things that vegans can’t eat – as if the thought of giving up SAD (standard American diet) wasn’t enough. Luckily, there are many solutions available that can help you find substitutions for your favorite products that can help immensely as you transition to a vegan lifestyle. From the delicious dairy-free substitutes...

Exploring Natural Remedies

Even though I eat a fairly clean, plant-based diet, I have to admit that I don’t always feel like a million bucks. Feeling  like you aren’t 100% is a huge drain on the mind and body, and it can often seem like there’s no quick solution. Since I’m well into training for my 50k in October, I want to make sure that I’m recovering quickly and feeling my best. From heartburn to general feelings of discomfort, I’ve been running into a few issues that I am trying to resolve quickly. However, rather than head straight to...

Let’s Talk About Supplements

Posted by on 11:12 am in Nutrition and Wellness, Product Reviews | 1 comment

I’ve been deep in the weeds with more things that I can count lately, but I wanted to pop in and share a few things with all of you before I disappear into the wild again. Since I gave birth to my youngest last summer, I’ve been back in the gym hitting it hard. With all of the talk about supplements and if they are truly worth it, I wanted to weigh in with my own opinions and experience with vegan supplements. As always, I value your opinion and would love to hear about your own experience or recommendations in the comments....

Lemon-Herb Farro Salad

Lemon-Herb Farro Salad

I recently took an extended break from grains. When I say extended, I’m talking 6-8 months or so of essentially grain-free living. I don’t have a sensitivity, nor do I eschew grains in my diet for any reason, but I’m a believer in changing things up every once in a while, and I’m sort of (really) obsessed with doing self-experimentation. For several months, I diligently took detailed notes about what I ate, how I felt, and what my athletic performance was like. I’ve been searching for various ways to enhance my...

Diving into Vegan Pressure Cooking by JL Fields

  I know I’m late to the party (the cookbook came out in January), but Vegan Pressure Cooking by JL Fields is just too good not to share with you all! Not only is JL one of my dear friends, but she also wrote one hell of a cookbook. I had the privilege of recipe testing for this book, and I have to say that it was a truly enjoyable experience. The recipes are so tasty, that you will hardly believe they are so simple to prepare. And that, my dear readers, is the main point of JL’s cookbook; Delicious, compassionate food...

Health Minute: 7 Vegetables that Burn Fat

Look at your amazing faces! I can’t believe I’ve been away from them for so long! Well, I’m back, at least intermittently for a while, and I wanted to dive right into some great info that can help you on your journey to wellness, no matter where you are starting from. Whether you want to build muscle or lose weight (or even just maintain you current body), making sure that fat is used for energy rather than being stored is an important part of the equation. For the last few years, I’ve become more engrossed in studying...

A Very Vegan Cuts Holiday

Since it’s internet debut, I’ve had a love affair with Vegan Cuts. For those of you who don’t know, Vegan Cuts is an online vegan marketplace that offers tons of vegan goodies at low prices. And we aren’t just talking about food (though, if we are being honest, that’s the only thing we are concerned with anyway) – they have tons of great deals on compassionate accessories, environmentally-conscious gifts, and more. I didn’t have time to put together my usual gift guide (you can view my previous guides...

Beyond Meat Shepherd’s Pie Recipe

Well hello, fine readers. I’ve been absent for some time, but I hope to be back more frequently now that the littlest one is already getting so big. Enough of this though – let’s get on to the recipe! I’d been hesitant for some time to jump on the Beyond Meat bandwagon. I’d heard nothing but good things about it from many of my vegan friends (especially from JL), but I’ve always been a little bit wary of bringing too many meat analogs into my diet. However, after having another little one and realizing that...
