Hello and welcome! I’m Sarah and this is where I like to share my journey creating simple and seasonal vegetarian recipes.
I currently live with my husband in Northern California. We’re both originally from central Florida and have lived in the Bay Area for almost two years.
During the day, I work full-time in the glamorous field of healthcare and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a nine-to-five schedule can be challenging. My goal with this site is to offer some inspiration to make it seem a little easier. I am a self-taught cook and try my best to create easy recipes that are healthy and still taste good.
Why do you eat a vegetarian diet?
Mainly because of animal welfare but also because of my desire to eat whole foods that give me the most energy and make me feel my best. Brandon and I made the decision to stop eating meat together and have been vegetarians for over nine years.
What inspired you to start your blog?
Transitioning to a vegetarian diet really forced me to step outside of my comfort zone in the kitchen. After graduating college in 2008, I found myself with more time to cook and started to focus on creating meals using unprocessed protein sources. Eventually I started to research new recipes online and stumbled across a few food blogs that I found useful. Then the more I continued to read and explore, the more I felt at home, connecting with so many people across the world who share similar passions for a good food and a healthy lifestyle. From there I was inspired to start my own blog so that I could document my favorite recipes and share my experiences as well.
Are you allergic to gluten?
No but I think one of the most important elements to a healthy diet is variety. I try to experiment with different grains/flours so that I’m getting a variety of nutrients but it’s also nice to provide those who do have gluten allergies with a few alternatives in the process.
Do you blog about more than just food?
Outside of cooking, I enjoy staying active and traveling. Among the pages of my blog you will also find a little bit of fitness mixed with international travel and plenty of California love as we continue to explore our new home.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope by sharing my life that I can inspire others and in-turn, be inspired by you too.
