I’m a brand/writer and want to work with you. Can we make that happen?
Let me know what you’re thinking. Email hola(at)onepartplant.com and tell us what you’ve got in mind. Excited to hear about it.
Are you vegan?
Yes. No. Um, sort of? I’m not into the eating-label thing. It can be restricting and make you feel a little crazy. I eat a whole-food, plant-based diet with a focus on foods that make me feel energized and happy.
Are you a dietician? Can you give me medical advice?
No. I have a certification in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Foundation. That means I know A LOT about how plant-based foods can benefit our bodies, but it doesn’t mean I am a nutritionist or doctor. I cannot give you medical advice here or via email. My focus is guiding and teaching – and giving people more confidence in the choices they make about the food they put in their bellies and the info they feed their brains.
Did eating a plant-based diet cure your endometriosis?
No, there is no cure for endometriosis. But changing my diet and adding more wellness practices do help manage my symptoms in a huge way!
Were you able to conceive with your endometriosis? Why did you adopt?
I didn’t try to conceive, so I’m not sure. I’ve always known I wanted to adopt, so that’s how my husband and I decided to start our family. If you’re interested in adoption or just feeling unsure about giving birth, check out these posts:

I want to start a website or blog. What advice can you give me?
Just start already. That might sound annoying and kinda vague, but the only way to get it going is simply to start. It doesn’t have to be perfect, and you can always make changes. Every band has a demo. Every cookbook has some burnt-ass cookies that didn’t make the cut. You can start by doing one thing (big or small) every day to make it happen. Just hit that publish button!
I want to start a podcast. What tools do you use?
– I use Skype and ecamm call recorder to record my conversations.
– My microphone is a Blue Yeti.
– I edit using Garage Band and learned how to do it by watching YouTube tutorials made by teenagers.
– I use Auphonic to level the sound.
– My podcast host is Libsyn.
I want to write a cookbook. Can you help?
Def. I created a whole podcast about it called The Cookbook Deal. Find it here.
