  Welcome! I’m Sarah and this is where I share my journey creating simple and seasonal vegetarian recipes.

 During the day, I work full-time in the glamorous field of healthcare. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a busy nine-to-five schedule can be challenging sometimes but my goal with this site is to share the ways that I try to make it easier. Whether it be cooking wholesome meals that are easy to throw together or talking about the latest fitness program that can be done at home.

Why do you eat a vegetarian diet?

After doing some research, I realized that I didn’t like what was going on behind the scenes at many of the larger farms across the country. Not only was I disturbed by the inhumane treatment of animals but from a health standpoint, I found it to be deplorable. As a result, my husband and I made the decision to stop eating meat together almost nine years ago. We still eat some dairy and eggs but I always try my best to source local and certified humane products.

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 researched new recipes online and stumbled across a few food blogs that I found useful. 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 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 and staying active, I have a strong passion for travel. Among the pages of my blog you will also find some international travel mixed in with plenty of California love. We’ve lived in the Bay Area for two years now and are always finding somewhere new to explore!
