baby steps, baby.

baby steps, baby.

Want to go vegan and eat healthy? And make it stick?

Let’s do it together, one step at a time. Starting small – but now – is way better than trying to start big but later.

Stop beating yourself up for not reaching the bar you set so high for yourself…
The way to reach that impossibly high bar is to build small steps, one on top of the other, until you find yourself looking at that bar as just one more easy step.

The most important step–is that first step. Just take one. Then take another. And another. Til you’ve nailed it.
I’m ready for ya. Together, we can build the motivation and momentum to make it happen. Are you game?

Here’s how it works:

We take one step a day. We go 31 days.
Each day, you’ll get:

  • a quick nutrition lesson (with audio download + PDF cheat sheet)
  • a delicious vegan recipe to try (video demo if you need it)

This is not another “challenge”, it’s not another bootcamp or Master Cleanse or low carb diet that’ll put you in the yo-yo zone…

This is you, getting the action steps and motivation to do what you know will help you get healthy and feel better. Getting the delicious recipes to show you exactly how.

You don’t have to be perfect, and you don’t have to do it all at once.
You just have to start.

Take it in baby steps, and watch them turn into big giant leaps.

  • Thanks for another new dimension to the information you share with us. You deliver the info so clearly. It makes me realize I can really do this and bring my life back in order.

  • Thanks for your great articles, they’re full of precious and clear information. The thing I specifically like about them is that they’re not aggressive. A lot of vegan and vegetarian websites tend to be, telling you that you’re not welcome if you eat meat. All your articles are very valuable. Your recipes are so easy to follow and so delicious!!! Your website really helped me to see vegan diet differently, I used to think vegans were quite extreme, but I realized that it’s just a healthy way of living.

  • I have to commend you on your body of work and the contribution you are making to teach others, like me, to navigate through the mass of conflicting and confusing information about eating healthily as a vegan, and just health in general. As a newly minted vegan, your site has been a godsend.

About your nutritionist

Hey there! My name’s Heather. I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, trained through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.

My goal is to help you get all the nutrition and energy you need when you go vegan. Because I want you to stick with it for the long term.

I know it can be overwhelming trying to learn and change everything at once, so we’re going to baby step it. Not that we’re thinking small – these baby steps will add up to something huge over time.

We’re going to take it one day at a time, steadily rolling along. And we’re going to do it together. I’m super excited to show you how amazing this can be.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I allowed to have chocolate?

Don’t worry, I love chocolate, too. I don’t believe that chocolate and health are mutually exclusive, in fact there are a lot of benefits to high quality dark chocolate. I’ll also show you how to make super healthy chocolate treats, so you can get your fix.

What happens if I miss a day?

No worries. Pick up again the next day and carry on, or you can catch up. You’ll get a downloadable recap at the end so you can do it over again and again if you wish.

Do you use tofu/soy?

I don’t include any tofu in my recipes. The only soy products I use are frozen green edamame beans (you can swap for another bean or frozen peas), tempeh, tamari/soy sauce (which you can swap for a soy-free aminos or just a bit of sea salt) and occasionally miso. I’ll give substitution suggestions.

I don't have a lot of time - can I handle this?

Well, I can’t guarantee, but this is designed for people without much time. There’s a downloadable 5-10 min audio you can listen to on your commute (or while making coffee), and a cheat sheet if you are really pressed. You’ll get a recipe each day, but you could save them up for the weekend and batch cook/prep.
