I created this site to assist anyone who is looking to improve their health by making the simple decision to daily choose plant over processed. This decision is not a quick fix, and certainly not a diet plan, but rather an all encompassing lifestyle that can potentially, completely change your quality of life. It worked for me and it may work for you too. Hoping this journal will provide guidance, support and success for any of those who are interested.
Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most. - Buddha
My goal and intention is to provide information and guidance to greater health, all supported and approved by my Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Diana Joy Ostroff.

I hope this is a place of support and knowledge where you can learn how to unveil the best version of you! Here you will find meal plans, health tips, recipes, health guidance, talk, family life, exercise info, skin and hair tips all while having a little fun! This is not a quick-fix diet. This is a lifestyle that can improve your long-term quality of life. This is a holistic approach - taking a look at mind, body, and soul. There are no gimmicks or magic potions. This is about healing, replenishing, revitalizing, and restoring our bodies from the inside out.
The goal is to help you develop a sustainable, healthy lifestyle that you can enjoy and benefit from while fitting into society and supporting our planets 'health'. This is a lifestyle that encourages healthy living choices in all aspects of life, reaching for results of optimal health and well-being.
Please note that I will be sharing my own experiences. Since we are all so unique and different, you may find that your best results will come about through personal research as well as the support of a qualified, licensed Naturopathic Physician, who’s specialty is assisting you in finding and creating optimal health. This is what Dr. Diana Joy Ostroff did for me and has done for many others. I am not personally qualified to make health claims. However, much of my knowledge and experience originates through the support of health care professionals including Dr. Joy.
A plant-based vegan lifestyle has changed my quality of life. Although my goal was to feel normal, I found myself feeling amazing, vibrant, and in control! It takes time and a little bit of trial and error.
It takes effort to get educated and re-learn how to shop, prepare, and eat foods and make nutritious choices. I am here to make that easy for you! It will one day be your way of living and become normal, natural, comfortable and familiar. I honestly have never enjoyed life and food as much as now! It is truly liberating! My wish is that every person can discover their true potential. I know all too well how poor health can detract from all facets of life. You may be saying to yourself, “It is too much effort” or you may feel reluctant to give up old, enjoyable habits. I get it! I have been there for years! I thought, “Okay, I'll eat healthily and exercise, but I am still going to drink soda every day. I am going to keep my chocolate, chips and my nighttime snacks of hot chocolate with cool whip and caramel corn! I did not think I even wanted to give that up to be honest.
The reality was 'these things' were depleting my health. It seems so innocent to indulge in these goodies, and some people can get away with it, but I want you to know, if you want to change, it is possible! If this girl, who normally can't stick to anything for more than 4 hours, can do it then you can do it too! I am dedicated to making this page as informative, supportive, helpful and fun for anyone who wants to change! This page is here for you, and I want you to know that I am so excited for you! This lifestyle is so abundant and beautiful! I can't say it enough, but I have never experienced life to this capacity! It may seem restrictive at first, but the freedom to come is simply amazing!
I look forward to meeting you!
