Hey there! I’m so glad you decided to stop by. I’m Darian, I live in South Carolina and I’m a full time student. This is my creative spot on the internet where I merge my passion for nutrition and cooking and share it with you. Here you will find recipes, tips, and personal stories about my mostly plant based lifestyle. I’m eager to take you with me along this journey to better health.
Why plant based?
All throughout high school I became obsessed with greasy foods and sugary drinks. Comfort food looked like pan fried chicken and mom’s homemade sugar cookies for dessert every single day. After doing this for most of my life I began reaping the consequences. These included my inability to maintain a desirable weight, constant breakouts, feeling sick, unmotivated, and sluggish all the time. It wasn’t until college that I took my first class on nutrition and fell in love. It was like a passion that I never knew I had. I became inspired by the body’s capabilities to heal itself. In my free time I would start reading up on nutritional research and books.
I began connecting the dots behind why I felt so bad I was eager to treat myself by addressing the root problem, my eating habits. For so long I would take pills and supplements to combat the side effects of my poor diet without facing the cause. In the midst of my research I stumbled upon eating plant based. It was then that my life changed forever and it was at that moment that I felt like I found the answer. I made the transition toward a plant based lifestyle almost immediately, while I don’t categorize myself under any specific label I do consider myself to be mostly plant based striving for the elimination of all meat and dairy eventually.
Ever since the transition my skin has cleared, my weight is consistent, I have energy to run miles at the gym before school, and I am able to stay focused on a given subject for any length of time. My grades have gone up exponentially, I’ve saved a ton of money and I don’t get sick hardly ever. If you are considering a plant based lifestyle I completely recommend it and hope my site can inspire you somehow or another!
