Before I figured out how to eat without overthinking.

Before I found my steady weight.

Before I went vegan.

…there was a self-loathing, calorie-obsessed, weight-fluctuating girl.

My weight yo-yo’d.

I hated every inch of my body.

And I analyzed every single thing that went into my mouth.

I sent myself on guilt trips farther than your passport could ever take you. No matter how many times people told me I was beautiful or my body was perfect, I just didn’t believe it.

About Kelsey3.jpg

I didn’t have the smoothest path to the lifestyle I have now.

While my pre-vegan days saw me trying every detox plan and following every fitness guru out there…

The shift into a plant-based life was anything but easy.

When I finally took the leap into veganism, I was shaken by the fact that this wasn’t just like any other diet I had tried.

The first few days were rough.

I didn’t give up bacon and eggs and then suddenly find the self-confidence of a super model.

During the first week, every meal meant navigating a landmine of animal products and I found myself more confused than ever.

Long hours learning about what being vegan actually meant to justify this diet change.

Painful conversations with people judging me for this new decision.

Standing at the grocery store with no idea what to buy.

Confused cooking.

Frustrating food realizations.

And a big-gulp-kinda understanding of my contribution to global warming and animal cruelty.

When IN Reality, I knew…

About Kelsey5.jpg

My obsession with calories and fascination with fitness gave me the right to call myself a “health freak”…

But the truth is, I was torturing myself. Keeping myself from the real definition of healthy.

So, I took a final stand.

I committed.

Once I committed, it all aligned from there.

I learned:

  • That eating fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and seeds is actually way more delicious than I thought

  • How animals are treated just to feed the bad eating habits I already hated

  • Veganism is one of the best lifestyle changes to combat global warming

When it all clicked, I realized…

About Kelsey7.jpg

And best of all…

I’ve had the honor of helping dozens of people like you take control of your health, sidestep years of internal frustration, and build a relationship with food that frees you from body shame, gives back to the planet, and saves animals.

It’s about more than what’s on your plate.

It’s about your happiness.

It’s about you finally feeling content. Feeling confident.

It’s about being part of a bigger cause. An important movement.

It’s about helping you find a healthy relationship with food and your body that gives you real purpose.

About Kelsey8.jpg

You deserve to feel freedom from your inner-critic.

You are worthy of self-love.

You can have real body confidence.

You can have a healthy relationship with food.

You already have a purpose that will help change the world if you are open to finding it.

This isn’t just a diet. It’s a lifestyle that makes everything better.

About Kelsey10.jpg

Change is scary.

Kelsey’s Plantifesto

I’ve been vegan since June 2017 when my sister and I decided to make the leap together after a tough intervention with a family member regarding their drinking habits. In order to really hammer home the “why” behind the decision (so I knew I’d stick with it), I watched just about every documentary out there and read as many scientifically-based articles and studies. There was no running from the truth, so I just committed [fearfully], but have been rewarded with better health, self-confidence, more energy, and a well-rounded, more genuine relationship with the planet.

I am originally from New York, but I currently live in Queenstown, New Zealand. I have lived here since January 2016 and plan to settle here for many years to come. I love to adventure, hike, practice yoga, run, bungy jump, road trip, cook, read, dance like a lunatic, and spend time with quality people that I love. My childhood wasn’t like every other kid’s and included lots of dysfunction and abuse. Since creating a life in New Zealand that I adore and the vegan lifestyle that I love, I have found a peace that I want to share with everyone I can.

We all deserve to be content, it’s just about recognizing the powerful journey of getting where we want to be.

I’m here with you on this life adventure and I hope we can find peace together.

I’m an open book and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.
