About Me


I’m a pseudo athlete and pseudo vegan living/loving life in busy city New York City. I started this blog as an outlet for the two things I love the most, cooking and running. My diet is a mix of vegan and vegetarian meals but I also eat meat a few times a week. You will find my recipes are great for non-vegans who are looking to eat a more whole and nutritious diet.

I’ve been interesting in cooking all my life but my passion for running didn’t start until I moved to the city. Hours of sitting at my desk left me needing to find a way to release my stress. I started out in boot camp and boxing classes and eventually stumbled upon running.The first race I ever ran was the OKC Memorial Half Marathon in my home state Oklahoma. I wouldn’t say I was hooked to begin with but my love for running grew as I got my body/mind in better shape. It also helped that several of my friends were getting into the sport. Some where between my third and fourth half marathon I got turned on to the idea of finishing a half marathon in every state. I can’t think of a better way to combine my love of traveling and running. It’s also a great way to see my friends who live in all corners of the U S of A.

My story is simple and I hope that the honesty in my blog strikes a chord with many of you. Not every workout or recipe is perfect but I know that I’ll get right back at it the next day. Pushing harder in my training and using all those long runs to think of new ideas in the kitchen!

      Life is about balance. I think instead of enjoying eating vegan I would begin to resent it if it held me back in my job or my social life. Glad you like my blog!

  2. HI there! I just stopped by your blog for the first time this morning! Iam excited to start reading! A few months back, I started experimenting with alot more vegetarian/vegan foods and I have to say I am experiencing a HUGE difference in the way I look and feel. For the most part, I have always been conscious of what my family and I were eating, but reducing the amount of meat and dairy has taken things to a whole new level!!!

  5. Hmm, running, lots of yummy vegan/vegetarian recipes, plus you’re in my fave city (NYC) – sounds pretty perfect to me! :) I was actually vegetarian for about 5 years before re-introducing some meats back into my diet. So, I still love the occasional veg meal – will def. have to check yours out!
