Back in the saddle again...

Wow!  After blogging for 40 days straight I decided to take a break and recharge.  I didn't realize at the time that it would be almost four months later that I would start writing again.  Now that I am back in the saddle I am refreshed, recharged and ready to reconnect.  

I spend two of those weeks off in Menlo Park, California doing an intensive and spiritual study on the Enneagram.  I am excited to say I learned a lot and enjoyed the company of some absolutely wonderful people.  If you are not familiar with the Enneagram, no worries, keep reading my blogs. I will be sharing the benefits of this ancient wisdom and explaining what it is and why it is important in our lives.  

I also moved from the Atlanta, Georgia area to Denver, Colorado.  It is beautiful here and I am looking forward to experiencing all Denver has to offer.  

On Monday, I will begin posting on Instagram what I eat each day.  I have a few reasons for doing this. 

#1. Of all the things that people ask me the #1 question is always about my diet as a vegan/whole food plant based eater.  Many people consider changing over to this lifestyle in one form or another but don't know where to start and how to prepare a variety of meals.  There is no doubt that this lifestyle can at first seem difficult, but with knowledge and a few small changes it can be beyond rewarding for your health, the environment and the animals that coincide with us on this beautiful planet.  In addition to these rewards, cooking can be a release as well as a calming factor and a way to flourish creatively.  Food with all its colors and textures can be a work of art.  All our senses can be awakened through a good healthy meal.  

#2  The Holidays.  This tends to be a time when we overeat or eat foods that are truly decadent.  I would like to show how we can still eat right and enjoy the special foods the holidays bring.

# 3  Lastly, as said earlier, I've just moved.  This has been a stressful time and I have allowed myself to make some poor choices.  I've continued to eat a vegan diet but have not been as dedicated to my whole food plant based lifestyle.  I'm excited to back on the saddle and start eating and feeling healthy and vibrant. 

With all of this said, I hope you will follow me on Instagram @graceful_vegan over the next 30 days.  And please know I am back to blogging every Tuesday. You can expect blogs about food, Somatic Awareness, The Enneagram, Lifestyle Organization and an overall look at our world as I see it.  

Of course, I would love to work with anyone that is interested in using a Life Coach, a Spiritual Coach &/or a Whole Food Plant Based Eating Coach. You can reach me at 404-933-6524 or at

Wishing you Grace, Peace & Healthy Living,
