When I was growing up, my mom was a nurse. She told me that some of the best doctors believe that “If you listen long enough to a parent, they will tell you exactly how to help their child.”
As we become adults, we can learn to integrate and cultivate that knowing and loving parent who lives inside ourselves.
We need “only” uncover that inner wisdom.
That isn’t always an easy thing to do when we’ve grown up in a culture that has told us that we should look...

Mother's Day is this Sunday and I want to recognize all the wonderful mothers out there. Whether your babies are humans or have fur, feathers, or scales, you deserve celebration.
I also want to acknowledge all the mothers who will never get to be with their babies, including mama cows entangled in the dairy industry whose babies are taken away shortly after birth so that humans can consume their milk.
If you are a mother or you have or have had one, this very personal video of my...
Today, I have a very special video for you. It's one of the creations I'm most proud of. I hope you’ll watch it to see just how much power you really have—multiple times every day.
As children, we're taught that there are "dairy cows" that magically and automatically have milk—even that we're doing cows a favor by milking them. They don't, and we're not.
Of course, none of us would ever want to intentionally harm an animal. But what if you discovered that even though you were...
Why have “Earth day” when we can have "Earth EVERY day!"? You can help make that a reality with the powerful climate change fighting tools that live right in your kitchen drawer! Down below, I’ll share a link to a very special short video I helped make about this.
It’s easy to feel helpless when political policies are made in direct conflict with our personal values. It’s terrifying to see the erosion of environmental protections.
Believe it or not, you have...
I love my silver jewelry, but I don't love having to use nasty chemical silver polishes when it tarnishes.
To keep my silver sparkly bright, I found a way to make chemistry work for me by using ingredients in my kitchen so I don't have to use toxic chemicals that are bad for me and have been tested on animals.
As a homeschooling mom, I love this trick as a way to teach kids (of all ages) about the brilliance of chemistry. Bonus!

Want to know what to use instead of dairy butter? I've gotcha covered! While several commercial vegan margarines and shortenings are available (and they are certainly much better than dairy butter), I prefer to create my own version from scratch for most recipes.
I do this for several reasons. For one, most vegan margarines use palm oil, a product that has been linked to some major issues in the countries that produce it. Ranging from human rights abuses to climate...
If you've ever struggled with releasing dairy from your diet, I feel ya. It was one of the last things to go for me, and gave me some of the greatest benefits. As a mom who nursed her daughter, I became intimately aware of issues about dairy from a different perspective. My desire to help people feel their best has driven my passion to create The Dairy Detox!
Back in 2015, my dear friend Michelle Cehn and I started working on this project that is very close to my heart. I'm thrilled to...
