The Vegan Platypus

About me

Picture of Brandon and me on a gravel road.

I currently live in Rexburg, Idaho. I moved here from Kansas City to attend school at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I met Brandon in my second semster and we fell in love. I never thought I would meet someone who lets me be me. We are getting married on December 28th, 2019! It is coming, and I am totally not ready.


I became a vegan because of Brandon. His family has been on a plant based whole food diet for years now. There are many health benefits to it, and there are documentaries proving this. I decided to try it because I wanted him to like me. At first, I hated it because all I wanted was chicken fingers, but I soon learned how good it made me feel. I no longer had stomach problems, I slimmed down, and had an easier time exercising. I was sold.


So, from now on I am living the whole food plant-based lifestyle, and I can't be happier. I am hoping to help others make this switch. It is hard to do in the beginning, so I hope I can help give you some yummy recipes and inspiration to get you started!
