  1. WAHOOO, thank you!!

    1. The hardest thing about blogging used to be the pressure to post when I didn’t feel like I had anything worthy of posting. I don’t stress about that much anymore and it makes blogging much more fun!

    2. I usually get blog ideas before I write my posts, but when I sit down to write them it all comes out like random word vomit.

    3. I’m a plant based eater. I hesitate to say vegan because I eat honey and don’t “freak out” about some things I cannot control. I used to use the vegan title, but I’m not a fan of titles. I choose to eat plant based because I love me some animals and because I love how it makes me feel.

    4. I eat a lot of spinach, and balance it with chocolate.

    5. I can’t stand mushrooms. It’s a texture thing.

    6. When I first switched to plant based (100%) I was dating a guy that did it with me! It was great. Now I’m single and my cats support my lifestyle.

    7. Both.

    8. Oye, this one makes my brain hurt.

    9. Eat and Run by Scott Jurek.

    10. I can make a Chewbacca noise with my throat.

    11. Yes..so much yes.
