Welcome To Adventures in
Mindful means to be attentive, aware, or careful. To our family, Adventures in Mindful Living means to really pay attention how we are cooking, living, learning, and loving.
When I started this website the purpose was to help families and individuals find healthier and more mindful alternatives to their typical meals, snacks and desserts. We do this by removing the meat and dairy from the recipes and replacing it with other options. One of the amazing side effects of becoming more mindful in our cooking and eating was that the mindfulness overflowed into all areas of our lives. This website has evolved along with our family and now includes many other ways to be more mindful in everything from cooking to weight loss!
We have learned and are continuing to learn from our personal experiences and would love for you to come along with us on this epic adventure towards eating and living more mindfully!
