Hi, my name is Dawn. I’m an educator in plant-based wellness and holistic living, a cookbook author, a wife, and mother of one sweet little girl.
I love learning and I’m always a student. I hold a BS from Florida State University, a certificate in plant-based nutrition through Cornell and the T. Colin Campbell Foundation’s continuing education program and I’m a certified nutritional therapist with a focus on epigenetics through the Health Sciences Academy in London.
Aside from healthy food, I’m a yoga lover, camping aficionado and SUP fanatic.
This website is for women that are interested in focusing on a plant-based lifestyle for themselves, and for the health of their family. For women who care about the planet and the creatures that share the earth with us – we know that our food choices affect more than just our own health.
We’re savvy, compassionate and sexy.
It’s not about perfection. It’s about the evolution of ourselves towards our greater goals. My blog posts, videos and programs are a reflection of my love of people, the earth, and all her creatures. I strive to inspire others through positivity, love, acceptance, and a little fun. There is a great need in this world for a paradigm shift. We need to become more introspective, start focusing on goals and dreams, and begin to feel love for ourselves. Only then will we be able to give love to others, and to create real, positive change. I endeavor to help others to reach their goals – especially in the realm of health, by showing them how to make simple, consistent changes.
Each week I write a post with a story about a lesson I’ve learned, share a recipe that will feed your soul, a video that will help you thrive, or a tip to simplify life.
My recipes did not begin as plant-based recipes, they evolved over time as I learned more about the world we live in – now all my recipes are plant-based. Though I am not perfect, I strive to eat and live as close to the earth as possible. I hope that you will join me on this journey to optimum health. I know that you’re busy, so my promise to you is that I will only reach out once a week to say hello, or if there is something really special that I think you’d be interested in. If you’d like to chat at any time, I’d love to hear from you. I adore my readers that have become friends, and am so thankful for each comment I receive. If you’d like to hear from me, enter your name in the box below and I look forward to chatting soon!
I’m honored to be a valued part of the global community to promote plant-nutrition. The movement is growing!
