“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” -Ephesians 4:32
Welcome! As you embark on your journey to uncover the vegan within, be encouraged to always thirst for knowledge. I thank God for my journey and hope yours also includes a restoration of your mind, body, and spirit. Motivate yourselves daily to always seek truth and remain humble.
Between my culture, my family, church family and friends, food has always been the center of every gathering…and there have been many! It only feels natural for me to cook, entertain, create, and enjoy food. My mother, father and aunts have truly inspired me in this regard.
Although I was not always vegan my entire life, I can say that I never consumed shellfish (shrimp, crabs etc.). Also, I have never indulged in swine either, among other things. This, due to religious purposes – thanks mom! In fact, that detail about me has always surprised many people because of my culture. I am Puerto Rican, and some people act as if eating pork is a prerequisite. I’ve had people say to me before, “I’ve never met a Puerto Rican that doesn’t eat pork…no pernil…never??” …Yep, that happened.
In 2010, I changed to a vegetarian diet to mirror my husband-Seth’s diet at the time. In 2011, after watching Earthlings, we (as a family) immediately transitioned to a vegan diet. It was an instant lifestyle change, which reflects how powerful that movie was for us. I love documentaries, researching and just have a passion for learning.
I met my match in Seth, not only is he my best friend; his thirst for knowledge has always inspired me. He’s also an ardent photographer and truly a great writer.
Our journey brought us to become vegan. While preserving my family’s legacy with a love and passion for food, I’m creating my own now through vegan food, recipes, and this blog. Become addicted to your well-being, be compassionate. Ignorance is not bliss…it is just ignorance.
Feed your mind, body and get passionate about life. Thank you for visiting!
“Life in the open air is good for body and mind. It is God’s medicine for the restoration of health. Pure air, good water, sunshine, the beautiful surroundings of nature—these are His means for restoring the sick to health in natural ways…” -Testimonies for the Church, vol. 7, p. 85.3 (Ellen G. White)
