About Me

Hi I'm Nicole! I created this blog in 2011 and started blogging about anything and everything, fashion, my favorite things, food and then life got in the way. I went vegan in 2011 and I started cooking up a storm. In 2013, I started this blog back up again, bought a domain name, started a Facebook page for my blog and wrote an ebook! It was so much fun pouring my creativity into this blog and enjoying food and cooking. I received Alicia Silverstone's cookbook The Kind Diet for Christmas and I was in awe, it helped me make the transition to veganism and I loved every moment in the kitchen. Veganism and cooking pretty much changed my life; I kept up with my blog, enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2014, moved to NYC and now I'm thinking about another cookbook! Thank you for following my journey!

I have always loved food (and eating) and have struggled with my weight my whole life. I was always an active but overweight kid and that followed me to adulthood. I still struggle with emotional eating and using food to deal with my feelings. Currently, I'm training for my first marathon; I've completed two half marathons and a 10 mile run and I'm a yoga and meditation teacher. To put the icing on the vegan cake, I bought a yoga studio last year in downtown Manhattan which has been so wonderful. My life has changed so much, just by changing what I eat and becoming more interested in my health and wellness. I hope to inspire you and get you in the kitchen. Thank you for reading and I'm forever grateful :)
