Our Family


My name is Holly. I am a wife and mother. I live in beautiful Arizona. I’m a Christian and I love Jesus. I believe that God created our bodies to be healthy but we pollute them by making poor life style choices. My family and I have begun to eat a Plant-Based Diet and are improving our health. This blog will follow our journey, keep us accountable and hopefully encourage others along the way.

You can read My Weight Loss Story which is also my Health Revival Story to learn more about why we switched to a Plant-Based Diet.

My husband’s name is Jim. He committed to eating a plant-based diet shortly after I began. He still eats meat occasionally but I no longer cook it. You can read his Weight Loss Story here.

Among those are wheat/gluten and peanut allergies so you can thank him for our turn towards gluten-free meals. Big Brother was born in 2009 is really starting to understand our food choices. He recently told a man in the checkout aisle that, “meat is yucky for me.”

We also have teenagers but I don’t share too much about them. I do my best to respect their privacy. They are not always happy about eating a plant-based diet but they eat what I cook or they make their own food.

I also write about raising Plant-Based Kids. You can read a few post about that here and here. Subscribe by email if you don’t want to miss a chance to be encouraged.
