Hi, I am Tara. I am a wife and mom to two busy teenagers. I am a plant based cook and baker on a spiritual journey.
I became plant powered in October of 2012. I have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), struggled with infertility and when I was diagnosed with high cholesterol I started on a health journey. I first went vegetarian for about 6 months but did not see the results I was looking for. I saw a group on Facebook that provided meal plans on a plant based diet and decided to go for it. I basically went cold turkey vegan. Within 6 months my cholesterol was in the normal range, I had lost 25 pounds and other health concerns had improved as well. I later learned that dairy is problematic when you have PCOS.
Some of my favorite things to do besides cooking and baking are yoga, meditating, riding bike, photography, listening to music, and being in nature. I also like animals and we have a small farm where we respect our animals and they live their lives peacefully.
I will be sharing with you some tips and recipes and misconceptions of a plant based diet. Hope you enjoy this journey with me!
