Welcome to my blog. This blog is a place for me to share some inspirations about a healthy lifestyle! I hope I can inspire you simplifying your life by enjoying peace, health & joy.
I am Sarah Jones and we live in the beautiful Malibu Canyons in Los Angeles with our five children, four dogs and two miniature horses.
After living with our kids in different countries and moving around for 13 years I finally fulfilled my lifelong dream of owning a rescue ranch and transforming our busy life in a beautiful farm-life.
I am vegan and strive to have a plantbased lifestyle, but I am not perfect. I do not want to judge people for where they are in their journey, although I hope this world will more & more realize what an incredible positive transformation on earth we could all achieve by living in harmony with animals.
I would love to extend my hand and help you learn about this lifestyle rather than condemn you. I truly believe in love and acceptance for wherever you wanna be in your journey.
Three years ago I decided to take a step back from the “world” to achieve greater spiritual, mental and emotional clarity & concentrate on peace in my mind.
I didn’t go shopping, to restaurants/bars or to a spa, nail & hair salon or anything fancy for two years. I also didn’t wear any makeup and started using only organic oils for my skin & hair. I basically spent my time only with my family at home, nurturing, cooking, baking & gardening.
During that time I started realizing what is really important for me. And this realization stayed with me since then.
At the age of 17 I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Shortly after that I got other diagnosis like PCOS, endometriosis and hyperthyroidism. All the surgeries never really helped me healing. The cancer always came back. The modern medicine only made money with me, but never cured my disease. My journey began, learning about nutrition, our toxic environment and this stressful life we all live.
Having five children and being afraid of dying pushed me into being a very fearful person. I am still in a process of learning how to deal with that, but the power of love is the greatest healer in the universe.
As my life evolved, I was driven to learn more about the food I was preparing and how it affects our bodies and our health. For years I read everything I can about whole, plant-based, raw food.
I then enrolled in a college to study plantbased nutrition. What I learned not only supported the daily experience I was having from eating plant based food, but also gave me knowledge to support a whole food, plant-based way of life. A very long time ago I also used to own a restaurant in Frankfurt.
Preparing meals without bringing suffering to any sentient animal is my passion & I use this blog as my own personal online cookbook.
I was born in Germany and my parents showed me the whole wide world during my childhood. I was very blessed to spend time in countries like India, Thailand, Italy, France, Denmark, Senegal, Tunisia, Turkey, Gran Canaria and much more.
We live in such a colorful world full of diversity. Using the power of variety makes cooking so enjoyable! I believe that what we eat is really important… for ourselves, for our fellow animals and for our planet.
You may think being vegan is a challenge, but it makes life so enjoyable that it is a challenge worth taking on!
And trust me, all of my recipes are easy. I have a busy life and try to make food easy & enjoyable. So I prep ahead and use only fresh, organic ingredients.
