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!
