What is Vegerarchy?
Are you looking to improve your health, switch to a vegan or vegetarian diet, or lose weight? Maybe you are just looking for some healthy and delicious recipes?
Or perhaps you are looking to improve your mind or your outlook on life. Perhaps you are thinking about going back to school and starting a new career?
Maybe you are interested in archaeology and cultures of the past and present, or are thinking about becoming an archaeologist.
And hopefully, you also care about the planet and are looking for ways to reduce your carbon footprint and live your life in the most sustainable way possible, without giving up all the pleasures that life has to offer.
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, then this blog is for you!
Please join me on my own journey of self-improvement through healthy diet, creating a healthy mind and body, exploring sustainable living, and living life to its fullest potential by pursuing your dreams at any age!
I have been vegetarian for 30 years and over the past several months I have been transitioning to a more plant-based vegan diet. Many of my recipes are time-tested and kid approved (I am also a mother of two boys), so you know they are good – and easy to make!
I am also on a weight loss journey, so many of my recipes are perfect for losing pounds and inches by adding more plant-based foods to your diet, without feeling deprived of all the foods you know and love.
Ever since my early 20s, I have looked for ways to live a lifestyle that has minimal impact on our planet and our environment, with maximum benefit for my health, body, and soul.
I am sure you have heard the expression “Reduce, Re-use, Recycle (and Respect)”? That’s my mantra! I am always looking for ways to Reduce waste, Re-use what I can, and Recycle what I can’t use anymore. I also Respect my environment, the planet, and all of those around me. I will share my tips and tricks for practicing the 4 R’s.
I also love gardening, spending time outdoors with my family, and living a healthy life that nurtures my body and spirit. I will show you ways that you can enjoy this kind of life too!
Archaeology and Going Back to College
I recently started a career as a professional archaeologist and I just received my MA in Anthropology in 2017. And I am 49 years old!
I started a B.A. degree program at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs when I was 40 years old and then went on to get my M.A. degree from the University of Colorado, Denver.
So I know a thing or two about going back to college at an “non-traditional” age, and how to get scholarships, grants, work-study and intern positions, and more!
I can also provide you with strategies for staying organized, creating good study habits, choosing and applying for the school that is right for you, and how to balance your academic life with work and family life.
I got you covered! I did it all while raising two boys as a single mom!
