Gallant International: Sustainable Goods Spotlight

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.

As a result of their high standards, I have decided to partner up with them and review a few of their products to share with our amazing community. Wholesale companies like Gallant International are perfect for business start-ups, family reunions, wedding parties, giveaways and more. All in all, the options are endless!

Veggie Packed Pineapple Tofu Salad

Veggie Packed Pineapple Tofu Salad


Jump to Recipe


Each and every week we create over 2-3 new recipes for our Plant-based meal plan memberships and sometimes, we get a bit addicted and attached to one specific recipe. This is one of those! It’s not always easy to take photos with two little toddlers running around, but lucky for you, Martin had a night shift this day and was able to take some photos of the cooking preparation! He was even able to snag some photos of Alessandro helping me to whip up the dressing and pour it all over this amazing meal. Enjoy!

Sustainable Home Goods with Lüks

Our family has been on a sustainable and ethical fashion journey for nearly 1 year now and it has been life-changing. Once we became conscious of the hell that happens behind the scenes of the fast-fashion world, we decided that enough was enough and it was time to fight back.

Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want.

3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Watch The How To Video Here:

(War sounds in the background) It was 8 in the morning. I still remember it like it was yesterday….the horror.

The boys looked at their morning oats like it was absolute rubbish….like I had purposefully given them trash to eat. A bunch of “NO” and “YUCK” were thrown my way as the sweat began to settle on my forehead….

“Shiiiiizz. It’s going to be one of those days”, I whispered to myself as I began to search around the kitchen for anything that I could feed my kids.

“BUTTTERRRR”

I kept hearing one of the boys say (No idea which one, they look and sound the same) and then the other chimed in with

“PEANNNUTTT”.

the first time I met a turkey
The First Time I Met A Turkey: Go Vegan

I didn’t meet my first Turkey until I was 29 years old. Well….alive that is.

I had consumed these creatures for over 25 years without an ounce of awareness. I didn’t even know what they truly LOOKED like.

I assumed my mother’s Thanksgiving decorations were all I needed to know.

When I finally did get to properly meet one, I was with Martin and we were on a hike in the mountains. Halfway up, there was a little farm and I could hear pigs squealing and cows mooing so loudly that it actually shook me. I ran over to see what was going on and there was a group of Turkeys pissing off some cows. Not just any cows, but Mama cows who were just trying to feed their babes.

the first time I met a turkey

The turkeys were getting way too close (like dude, she will stomp on you!) and could care less. They wanted whatever was growing near this space.

I told Martin I had never really seen a turkey before and he laughed,

“They are funny things” and he walked over to them. I followed.

They came right up to me and allowed me to pet them and they purred! They were quite funny little things.  A very cute personality and hunger for all things plants, bugs, and berries.

We hung out with some the other day and this fella kept trying to steal the dandelions from between my toes.

feeding turkeys

I dig Turkeys. They don’t belong on our plates. They belong in the fields purring, pissing other creatures off, and living their best “quite funny” lives. Just like us.

P.s. Please be aware that male Turkeys like to impress their women by taking on other animals.

Like….”Look at me Sharon, I’m a sexy beast of a Turkey!”.

They have been known to chase after humans to show off. If you find yourself in this situation, the best advice I can give is to be as large and imposing as possible (but do no harm of course). This will usually make them move along. Just act like a bear. This rarely happens, but the last thing I need is a Wonder Mama being chased down by a big turkey.

Camping Adventure with Children (Sustainable and Ethical Travel Series)

Our family just got home from a wonderful camping trip and I was able to film lots and lots for you all!

All of our prior arrangements were thrown out the window when the rain rolled in and stayed North (exactly where we were headed!) so we had to adapt and head South instead. We ended up staying at Lago di Garda and had such a magical time with the rock covered lake.

Come join us on our camping adventure with children; from washing cloth diapers to sleeping in our van!

Must-Have Vegan Camping Meals + Meal Prep List

Must-Have Vegan Camping Meals (Kids and Adults!)

I’ll never forget the day when I decided we just HAD to have a VW camper for our family. Thinking about it still makes me giggle a bit. I was sitting on the couch and looking through old vintage photoshoots on my phone (it’s a strange hobby of mine) when I saw a very cool family from the 70s. They were sitting out near a lake and had a stunning old school pop-top VW camper van. It was vintage perfection. Read more

How Good Plug-In for Non-Toxic Baby Products
A Parent’s Best Friend: The FREE HowGood Plug-In to Help You Identify Non-Toxic Baby Products and Shop Smarter!

The HowGood Plug-In is Here to Save The Day!

I remember the day my sons were born clear as day. The first scream cracked my entire foundation. The second scream followed about 10 seconds later and my entire world was shattered. A mother of twins was born! Everything that seemed important to me before was hazy and so far in the past. The present moment was all that mattered. This very moment of holding my sons to my chest and providing my breast milk for the first time in my life. It was surreal.
