WHEN MY PARTNER ISN'T VEGAN...

When you decide to make such a big change in your life and diet such as going vegan, so many fears, myths and issues are swirling around in your head.

NEW FOR MEMBERS!: DIFFERENT MEAL PLANNING METHODS

NEW VIDEOS FOR MEMBERS! A CHAT ON MAKING CHANGES AND GOAL SETTING + PORTOBELLO PUFF PASTRY ROLLS WITH PESTO!

If you're anything like me, you're probably constantly making promises to yourself, vowing to make lifestyle changes, setting goals and embarking upon new challenges, especially when it revolves around your health, daily habits and wellness. I get it. I've been there so many times. I love changing things up and making promises to myself to improve certain areas of my life that need a little reboot. I have also stopped mid challenge more times than I can even count, thinking that whatever I had chosen wasn't right for me, or I simply turned a blind eye and let my past habits sneak up on me again. I can tell you this has all happened to me many times over, but I can also tell you that it stopped, and I made it all the way there.

Last year I began a one year challenge that has changed my life in so many ways and has given me such a new perspective on goal setting. That's what the first of our two member videos is all about. I'm sharing my personal experience with you, and what that ride was like, plus my 12 tips for actually accomplishing any challenge you set out for yourself. Whether it's related to your work or studies, health and well-being, going and staying vegan, maintaining a healthy exercise routine, starting a meditation practice, losing weight and so much more. You'll love this video!
