You know how you go into a weekend thinking you’re going to unwind, get some extra sleep, watch a movie, make your favorite pancakes for breakfast – just generally forget about the work stress of the previous months week…do you see where this is going? Instead, you find yourself staring down a long backlog of […]
This post is part of an interview series in which I’ll be asking my very favorite bloggers ten questions, with the goal being to share both a little about each of them and also their top advice when it comes to veganism, blogging, and overall happiness. … I’m so excited, giddy really, to kick off these […]

I'm Amanda, a vegan blogger who ditched my 9-5 to pursue what I love – writing, specifically about a feel-good, compassionate, health-promoting way of living, through food, career, puppies, and all of the other little and big things I'm learning along the way.
I hope my posts brighten your day, nourish your body and spirit, and help support you in creating a happier life!
