Ready to go vegan, but no idea how to start?

Worried that you won't have any energy, or that you'll miss out on nutrients?
If you want to stick with it, you need to nourish yourself – and you need to make it delicious.
I’d love to show you how.

I'm a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, but I don't work in a clinic. I share my recipes, nutrition advice, and motivation through videos every week. My focus is on the energy we can create, and the fun we can have cooking up an amazing variety of delicious dishes!

If you want to take everything in your life to a higher level, you need to figure out how to make eating healthy food a part of your routine - and make it so tasty that you love every single meal.

If you're confused about how to get started as a vegan, or how to take your healthy eating game to the next level, it's time to simplify. Starting with what you bring into your kitchen--and into your body.

Most popular recipes

All of my recipes are vegan (i.e. dairy-free, egg-free and meat-free).
Most are also gluten-free, soy-free, and sugar-free - or at least free of refined sugars as well as refined oils.
They are all quick to make, healthy and delicious!

High-Protein Hemp Burger

These veggie burgers are based on toasted buckwheat (kasha), and have a boost of hemp protein. They'd also be fantastic with hemp hearts or ground nuts instead.

Creamy Chickpea Salad

This chickpea salad sandwich recipe is a perfect lunch to take to work. You can give a slightly ocean-y flavor with mineral-dense sea vegetables. Or not.

Chocolate Macaroons

Just 4 ingredients, plus one optional addition that I threw in after a brilliant brainwave as I was putting things away. And they taste so good it's ridiculous.

My first experience eating kale was horrible. I was served a gorgeous salad, but I couldn't get it down. I just could not stand eating kale.

Member Success Stories

"Heather, I have to commend you on your body of work and the contribution you are making to teach others, like me, to navigate through the mass of conflicting and confusing information about eating healthily as a vegan, and just health in general. As a newly minted vegan, your site has been a godsend. What I specifically love about it is that I can get whatever level of support I need - when and whether I need it."

"You were the catalyst that led me to give up the Doritos and steak bombs, and lose 100 pounds."
