I’ve been traveling for 6 months now and eating healthy is not always the easiest thing to do. After taking 37 flights in the last 6 months I’ve spent more time than I desire in airports. With 8 more months of full-time travel I want to start the year off right by getting some tips for maintaining a holistic lifestyle while traveling. I’ve been working with Anik, founder of OrgAnik Cuisine, a Holistic Nutrition Coach, lifestyle coach, vegan & vegetarian specialist, and cookbook author. She provided me with a wealth of information for when I am on the road. Continue reading

Making Cheese in Old San Juan

The View from Casa Lila

The View from Casa Lila

Making cheese in Old San Juan is one of the most unique experiences I have ever had while traveling!

I don’t know if it’s the spirit of giving or if we look forward to making others happy. I love giving presents and there is no better feeling. My favorite gift to give during the holiday season are my homemade peanut butter balls (a recipe passed down from my mother). It would appear to also be a favorite gift to receive. Continue reading

Cooking with a Vegan


President’s Choice Cooking School Menu

Instead of taking any ordinary cooking class I thought I would try something different. I decided to take a vegan cooking class with a friend. The perfect class to learn some new recipes! Some of my favorite foods are vegetarian, but I am not as familiar with cooking vegan dishes. A lot of my vegetarian meals consist of making breakfast combinations for breakfast, lunch, and supper. Waffles, omelettes, pancakes, crapes, protein shakes, and muffins…yum! I love breakfast! It was time to add some more variety to my palate. Cooking vegan was fun and inspiring…
