About Me

Welcome to Simply Gourmet!

This is our family blog where I share our travels, adventures, and food lifestyle. I write essays under the title, SIFTING THROUGH LIFE (found on the blog), and a weekly poem (found on the blog). I love food, but I more than food. I am a writer at heart. I am currently in school working towards my degree in psychology. My goal is to earn my doctorate in this field. I believe that to be whole, we need to feed our whole self: mind, body, and soul.  For me, this comes from eating a healthy array of foods to keep my body healthy, writing my essays and discussing ways to feed our minds, and through poetry. Poetry is how I heal and nourish my soul. Together they allow me to express my full self, not just a portion of who I am.

We are a vegan family. We didn't start out this way. It's been a journey. You will find all types of recipes on my blog. I don't erase them because this life is all about our journey.  You may be at a different place and need those recipes to transition to where you see yourself.

We are focused on doing our part for the environment, our bodies, the earth, and our mind, body, and soul.  Throughout this journey, we have paid close attention to how food affects our bodies.  We learned that we do much better when we eliminate dairy, meat, and eggs from our diet. Our skin looks healthier, our minds are clear, and our energy levels are high.

We live at the beach.  We hike, travel in our motorhome, bike, kayak, and explore as much as we can. We live to breathe fresh air.

We live to love our lives.
