My name is Alexandra, Alex for short, but most people just call me Al. I am a nutrition and fitness junkie, overindulgent-turned-minimalist & dairy lover turned vegan, 24-year-old Seattlelite who is attempting to gracefully adult (aka navigate this crazy, complex world). In addition to sharing some valuable advice I’ve learned in my 24 years, you’ll find healthy and SIMPLE recipes that I’ve created in my kitchen, easy ways to incorporate a plant-based diet into your life and read all about my adventures backpacking throughout Southeast Asia.
My hope for this blog is that you walk away feeling empowered to make a change that will lead you on a path towards a more healthy, happy, positive, simple, fulfilling life. Whether that is going meatless for one day out of the week, buying a reusable water bottle, taking up a yoga practice, taking the leap to travel, or simply being more present and mindful in your daily life. A wise young man once told me: “Everyday you make a choice to live your life the way you want it lived.” So my advice to you: take risks, step outside of your comfort zone, do one thing a day that scares you but most of all, be grateful for this crazy and awesome life you have been given.
So without further adieu, welcome! I’m elated you’re here!
