Hi, I'm Amanda...


  • Hey y’all! There are so many new faces to my little Instagram account that I figured I should do a crash course in “all about Amanda” so y’all know what you’ve gotten yourselves into 😉 1. I am a mama to four littles (6, 4, 2, and 7 months old) they are my everything even when they cause me to loose my mind and are the reason I pray for patience daily ❤️ 2. I’m married to my best friend (insert everything about #1 on this post —- JK) he is amazing and the reason I push myself to reach for the stars. He’s also the photographer behind the camera in most of my pictures (my son always steps up when I ask 🤣) 3. I started this space to help people not feel overwhelmed when transitioning to a healthy and non toxic lifestyle. I did not do this over night, it is something that is much easier if you pick a part of your life to focus on until you’ve conquered it and move on to the next 4. You will NEVER see me shamelessly plugging random crap for payment. My blog is a space where I KEEP IT REAL and if I don’t use it in real life, I won’t promote it to my followers. 5. I’ve recently gone dairy free and egg free (I still eat meat so I don’t use the word vegan) it’s really hard but I did it because my face does not like either and becomes very angry when I eat either. I’m hoping to share dairy free recipes for y’all every Friday and on my instastories weekly so y’all can get ideas on meals. I’ve realized you can get overwhelmed and not eat anything unless you look outside of the box. 6. I am Extremely passionate about reducing our toxic load. Over the past year, I’ve had the opportunity to start lobbying for us as individuals and our rights so thank you @beautycounter.hill.nerd for sparking that Light in me. I am excited to do more for others and really put my time into Meeting with elected officials and asking them to do better. 7. I love a good Netflix and chill session after the kids go to bed my husband and I like to BingeWatch entire TV series an alternate documentaries in between. 8. I am from a small town that doesn’t even have a caution light. It’s really crazy to look at the GROWTH thats happened for this small town country girl.

  • Vegan lunch today with my friend @stephineeguerrero. Mixture of broccoli, cauliflower, purple cabbage, kale, carrot, chickpeas sautéed in avocado oil, @lidlus Thai cilantro dressing and vegan butter. Topped with fresh avocado, hemp seeds and Himalayan pink salt. So good we had two helpings 😊
