Today, marks my 3 year vegan anniversary. #veganiversary 🌱🦌 Since this is a new account I know I haven’t shared the reason I went vegan. And if you’re vegan, you know we all like to share our vegan story! So, here it goes. It’s pretty straight forward.🖤 I was on our family vacation in Bethany Beach. My cousin and I went for a run and on our way back we noticed an animal in a ditch along side the road. When we went over we saw a baby deer. She couldn’t walk and was scared and struggling to get up. She’d obviously been hit by a car and left to die. We didn’t see her momma around anywhere. We asked a passing couple to borrow their phone because neither of us brought ours. We called the police who directed us to another department. They asked where we were and they said they were on their way. We waited a long time with the baby but no one came so we decided to run back to the house to get our phones and call again. We gave them the location and went back to the fawn. As we waited we sat with her. She calmed down and just watched us as we spoke to her telling her we were helping her and everything would be ok. As soon as the animal control got there they told us we could leave and they would take care of it. In my naive mind I assumed they would take her to a vet or somewhere to help her. Nope. As soon as we turned our backs we heard two shots. Tears streamed down my face before I even realized what happened. We got in the car with our family who came to pick us up to go to the beach. Both my cousin and I couldn’t stop crying. Our family tried to console us but it didn’t help. In that moment, on that short drive to the beach I told that fawn her life had a purpose and that I would go vegan. I didn’t even know what that really meant at the time but I started to research EVERYTHING. I think I ate salads and fries the rest of the trip. The story doesn’t really end there but that’s the jist of it. So here we are, 3 years later and a lifetime to go. I will always be a voice for the animals ✌🏼 That little fawn had her purpose. This is mine. #voiceforthevoiceless

I was talking to a mom this week who was in tears because of all the comments she hears about her son’s small size.
She worries about him, and deep down she thinks he’s just meant to have a smaller build, but the comments from others constantly make her second guess everything. It brings up all her doubts and worries about him and whether she is doing a good enough job as his mom. Is her son actually okay?
I FULLY believe that most people do not have bad intentions when they comment on a child’s size. They’re simply commenting on what they see, and they may not know what else to say.
Will you help me spread this message to help others find less hurtful words to say?

☀️🌱 Oh yes we did! The girls and I had a great time making this absolutely gorgeous sushi tonight! Not only was it way cheaper than going out, it tasted so fresh and it was pretty sweet knowing that all the ingredients were hand picked by us . We played around with avocado, cucumber, mango, shredded sautéed yam , and some crispy Gardein strips. These turned out SO perfect! We were laughing , as we were quite surprised . Look up the “ice cube tray method” on YouTube to learn how to make these darling sushi’s - you won’t regret it 😊☀️
Yup. Those 3 words describe us... Plant-based, vegan and kosher. Image from the @eatbychloe menu.

Growing up, my mom had a mural painted above our stairs with the quote “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. Since becoming vegan these words have never resonated with me more. I want to be the best person I can be with this one life I get to live. I want to be compassionate. I want to learn. I want to grow. I want to travel and do new things. I want Connor to see me being kind to all beings of the world and know that we can thrive physically and mentally doing so. If you could be your best self and not harm others, why wouldn’t you?
What does #BeTheChange mean to you!? #whyimvegan
🍜Who else used to loooooveeee alphabet soup as a kid?!
🙋🏻♀️This soupy goodness used to be my go-to comfort food whenever I wasn’t feeling well.
🧐Unfortunately most canned alphabet soups contain a lot of sodium, milk, cheddar cheese and preservatives.
👏The good news - you can make your own! And it’s pretty easy. Also feel free to add in veggies to make an even healthier version of this old classic.

👋🏾Happy Tuesday Insta Family & Friends!! • My breakfast this morning was on the go: Strawberry Banana Oat Smoothie with Almond milk and Milled Flaxseeds. Oh yeah!!
Yesterday I received the BEST email from one of the women in my fitness and nutrition community. It said....
It’s finally, finally, finally clicked!” .
You see after initially finding her way, losing her way, being ready to give up completely, she has figured out the best workout plan and nutrition plan for her. She is a very busy lawyer in the U.K. who needs a wellness plan that fits into her lifestyle and it has taken trial and error. My favorite part of her story is she NEVER gave up, she found a lot of workouts that weren’t for her, she was on and off her meal plan. She got results and then she gained some of the weight back, but she NEVER gave up. She believed in HERSELF and that is what this journey is. It is finding what works for you. .
Most of the women in my community don’t eat like I do, we all find what works BEST for us as individuals and sometimes we fall down, but we get back up over and over. .
So, if you are ready to find your way with health & wellness, I would love for you to join my community. I have been gifted three special discount codes I can share with three women, to help you kick off your journey. .
It’s not about being perfect, it’s about never giving up! Message me or drop your email below to get started. #chooseyou#plantbasedfoodie
