Aren’t we glad we did. Their stuff is amazing. They... Read More

Book Review: The Good Karma Diet by Victoria Moran


The first time I saw Victoria Moran was at Vegetarian Summerfest in Johnstown, PA back in 2011. My family and I were there for the 3 day program and I saw Victoria every day; whether she was the master of ceremonies on the main stage or leading her own class, I could tell this woman had an abundance of energy. In the years since, Victoria has been incredibly busy—most notably... Read More

SunWarrior Review


We’re not into taking supplements. We take our B12 and a vegan D3 (mostly in the winter when we don’t get much sun) and an occasional protein smoothie when we’re lifting heavy. So when SunWarrior offered to send me samples of their products, I decided to see what it was all about. I thought SunWarrior only made raw, vegan protein powders and I wanted to see how... Read More
