Yes, believe it or not, us vegans eat More Than Just Kale. No, we don’t just eat grass and tofu…I know, complete shocker! And no, I don’t wear patchouli oil either (nothing wrong with people that do). BUT I sure do give a shit about what I put in my body, the wonderful animals that we get to coexist on this planet with, and the damn environment! And yes, I wish more people would care about this stuff too (go ahead, roll your eyes…”ugh what a typical vegan”).

This blog is here to serve as an information source about a variety of topics regarding a plant based lifestyle. Doesn’t matter if you are a heavy meat eater (how those meat sweats treating ya?), already a devout vegan/vegetarian, or simply someone in between.

I am someone who lives a very active lifestyle, every day I do something that involves moving my body; I enjoy surfing, snowboarding, trail running, hiking, climbing, yoga, and working out in the gym. My goal is to live by example when it comes to my physical pursuits, and show people that not only can you survive, but thrive on a plant-based diet!

I’ve been on this plant based journey since 2012, and I often get asked in my personal life why I choose to be vegan, how did I get to that point, why does it matter, what the hell do I eat, where do you get your protein bro, etc., etc., etc..Well, this site is here to answer all those questions, and more! Go ahead, peel back that onion (look I made a vegetable reference ha) that is the many layers of a plant based lifestyle; I hope to share some interesting facts that will lead you to become more aware, be more informed, learn a thing or two about veganism, and maybe even be the slightest bit entertained. Enjoy!
