A Plant Powered Lifestyle
wellbeing has everything to do with plants. They make up our most ideal environment. They nourish us. They cure us. They give us oxygen to breath. They produce the clothes on our back. Plants and the nature that surrounds us and is what builds the ground for optimal health.
I have been on the path of a plant based diet that focuses on local, seasonal, wild foraged, garden grown food that supports my local community, nourishes my body, and protects the environment. A few years ago I started visiting local farms and farmers markets in Colorado to see for myself what the difference between a freshly picked fruit/vegetable compared to a store-bought one. Now I am passionate about investing in my well-being. I hope to expose more of this lifestyle so I can inspire people to make the necessary changes they need for a healthier life. Plant-based living is what humans need to nurture healthy minds. We cannot have a future without first coming face to face with the reality that the food that we have grown up eating is killing us and our planet.
Adventures That Change Our Perspectives
quaking forests. When I travel around my home state I encounter small towns that no one ever takes the time to look at. I meet wild dreamers who are working to make radical changes in their communities. Eating the food, studying the wild plants, and connecting deeply to the land.
Adventure should be approachable no matter what your budget looks like. Starting small still satisfies the lust for travel and immerses you into perspectives that are inspirational and life altering. I encourage you to make travel a priority, don’t look back on your life with regret. Find inspiration by discovering some of my favorite travel spots and plan your next adventure.
