Hello! It’s ME, Michaele, a 43 mother of a intelligent, beautiful tween girl, wife to a genius, animal lover, artist, designer, entrepreneur, amateur food photographer, trained yoga teacher, with a HUGE passion for cooking (vegan and raw), green living, seeking wellness for myself and all the people I love … YES, this includes YOU!


For most of my life I have suffered with the unpredictable, extremely painful and mysterious irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). I have lived most of my adult life as a vegetarian, then vegan. Unfortunately, I was what I like to call a “junk food” vegan. Yes, you can have a very unhealthy vegan diet filled with processed food. Through trials of trying to figure out what was affecting me, the next steps finally worked! We reduced processed foods massively in our home, increased the raw foods to at least 50%, focused mainly on whole foods for my nourishment, also made green juice and green smoothies my new best friends. I had finally found my cure! No more attacks, not even at “Aunt Flo” time (which I was guaranteed)! Honestly, I truly felt once I stopped the monster in my belly that I would finally reach the ultimate path to wellness. The reason why? … Well, I am a big believer that your body works in a holistic system, bring one thing in harmony and all the wheels will follow. That is the journey I am on now … the journey is GORGEOUS!
