My name is Samantha. I am made the choice to live a plant-based and animal-cruelty-free lifestyle. I am human so this lifestyle is not a perfectly vegan one, but I strive every day to find the balance between reality and my ideals. I want to live a normal life, but cut down on all the complex and toxic things.
I have been a vegetarian since I was 18 and a vegan since I was 22. I created my first blog in response to a bad date. The guy had a hard time understanding what vegan means and what I eat. I get asked those and many other similar questions all the time. I thought the best way to explain my life was to show it. Be a living example rather than being an annoying preacher. I was a single college grad with a dream to inspire people to do better.
Flash forward to today, I am married to a wonderful man—who loves meat. And in 2014 I gave a birth to a beautiful son–who also loves meat (much to my despair). Together we strive to be a natural, holistic, and loving family, despite our differences. We embrace most aspect of attachment parenting such as babywearing, extended breastfeeding and baby-led weaning.
This blog is a documentation of my journey. As you read my blog, I hope you find inspiration to live a more simple and happy life too.
