I’m Hana, a plant-based foodie and work-in-progress Dietitian who usually resides in Southern California, but is currently hopping from one South American country to another.
But regardless of my ever-changing home base, my mission is the same: that peanut butter should never be wasted.
But in addition to spreading copious amounts of peanut butter on homemade toast, I also want to spread the message that we’re all capable of greatness — so long as we support, encourage, and are compassionate to one another.
I started this blog to share an aspect of my life that’s taught me a lot about encouragement, compassion, and what it means to be supportive: living a plant-based vegan lifestyle.
Here on this blog, you’ll find articles that talk anything from living a minimal-waste life, simple plant-based recipes, wellness tips, and nutritional highlights.
By sticking around and subscribing, you’re joining me in the movement to spread the message about how to live a life with compassion.
Whether you’re a newly sprouted vegan or you’ve been at this for a while, I hope that you’ll find a lot of life-applicable advice.
Why Plant-Based Vegan?
First of all, what does it mean to live a plant-based vegan life? It means that people who follow this lifestyle don’t consume animal products including beef, chicken, eggs, fish, dairy, and eggs.
But as I like to look at it, it’s not about cutting foods out — it’s really about all the foods we are adding into our lives that our bodies absolutely thrive on. These foods include beans, seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, plant-based shmilks (as I like to call them), plant-based yogurts. And best of all, plant-based ice cream.
I use the term plant-based vegan because I cover the aspects that are super important to me.
Plant-based, meaning I consume as many whole foods as possible. This often means stuffing my meals with as many nutrient-dense foods as I can.
Vegan covers the ethical and environmental aspects of living this lifestyle. We must remember that we share this planet with non-human animals and we have a responsibility to respect them. The term vegan acknowledges that aspect nicely.
