About

Hi, I’m Suzan. I’m a late 20-something brand strategist with a passion for non-profit work and entrepreneurship. I’m also a writer, runner, yogi, and avid reader. And I love food – healthy, 100% nutritious, quality food.

I try to eat a plant-based diet and to leave out meat and dairy as much as I can, although I do eat fish, Greek yogurt, goat cheese, and dark chocolate without guilt. I also love eggs. And, of course, coffee.

My husband Dave and I currently live in central PA, where he is a Ph.D. student and I work full time. I consider food and exercise to be at the core of helping us achieve a lot and be happy and fulfilled at the same time.

Food is so central to every person’s life, so telling my stories through the lens of food makes a lot of sense to me. What we eat, where we eat it, and who we eat with says so much about who we are and how we spend our time.

This blog is my way to share my daily dealings with food, exercise, and many things in between.

  2. Hi Suzan! I’ve been following a plant-based diet for a year now, and I’m always excited to connect with other plant lovers. Like you, I definitely do the dark chocolate without guilt. Who can live without chocolate? I don’t do Greek yogurt, but I certainly don’t judge you for it. I remember how creamy that stuff is. The only yogurt I eat now is So Delicious Coconut Milk yogurt. I can’t stomach soy yogurt, but coconut milk yogurt (at least this brand) is wonderful. Oh, and I’m a coffee lover too! Anyway, I love your blog and am so glad I found you! Celeste:)

      I’m glad you found me, too! Your blog is awesome as well and I’m excited to read more in the future 🙂

      I love coconut milk yogurt – that’s what I eat every day as my mid-morning snack. I use Greek yogurt more for dinner recipes. And since you brought up chocolate, I currently have chocolate coconut milk ice cream almost every night.

  3. Do you do the So Delicious Coconut Milk Chocolate ice cream? OMG – I love that stuff! Before my husband and I went plant-based we were eating Ben & Jerry’s every night and I didn’t think I’d ever be able to kick the ice cream habit. Then we discovered So Delicious and it was just as good, maybe better. They don’t have the variety of B & J’s, but it’s so yummy! We’ve cut back on the ice cream thing now, however; and only do it once in awhile. I still can’t get over the fact that I was able to give up ice cream – it tickles me! Celeste:)
