My search for happiness led me down a path of ‘true-self’ discovery.  Along the way I lost over 60 pounds after battling with weight and body insecurities my entire life.  I’ve learned and am still learning what sustainable healthy looks and feels like.  I think I’ve gotten a true glimpse of it these past 6 months following an alkaline vegan diet.

I decided to embark on this plant based journey to combat severe stomach discomfort I began to experience. On the eve of my birthday almost three years ago, I found myself in the emergency room because I was in so much pain.

At the time I was following a relatively healthy diet and had been for a few years, so I thought. I was exercising regularly, eating more veggies and fruits, and keeping my weight in a good range, yet still I found myself in a growing state of pain. I couldn’t understand it. It was a crazy time and I was sick of it. I share about that part of my journey in the My Plant Based Journey Post.

Needles to say I had to make a change and try something different. I decided to cut out all meat and dairy, and follow a vegan diet, alkaline specifically. I consume ingredients and foods from Dr. Sebi’s nutritional guide of alkaline foods. On this blog I’m sharing my meals, recipes, and resources.

As you browse you’ll notice that I like to have fun with plating. I’m a creative at heart, I love fashion and style; making things pretty – food is no exception. It’s actually one of the keys to this lifestyle being sustainable for me. There are three of them, three keys, you can check them out here.  

I hope something on this blog will be informative, insightful or inspiring. I’m not a doctor, nutritionist or the like, I’m merely sharing my personal wellness journey and experience.

If any of the content resonates with you, amazing.


There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
