Hey, y’all. I’m Ada Raven…
That Singin’ Vegan Chick.
Or you can call me “The Raven”.
Not an Edgar Allan Poe reference. I actually wrote my own theme song called The Raven…
(Insert shameless promo of my very first EP. Go apeshit.)
Anyway, besides being an annoyance to my neighbors, I’m also a fitness teacher, passionate yogi, and a vegan.
Keeping It Real With You About Vegan Health and Wellness
I’m a bit of a hippie with a mouth on her.
Like, I want world peace, but I also like to curse like a sailor.
And I’m stubborn. I like things short, sweet, and to the point.
I get that from my mom.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I’m sick of the pomp and fluff that tends to surround veganism, health, spirituality, wellness.
I find that even advice for beginners seems complicated and unreachable.
It gives the impression that unless you’re willing to spend a ton of money and give up everything you like, you’ll never be healthy or happy.
And that, my friends, is a crock.
Look, I’m not condemning anyone who can wake up at 5 a.m. every morning, meditate for an hour and a half, then have an acai bowl before going for a 6-mile jog.
In fact, I aspire to be one of those people, because all of those things are great.
I’m just saying that I ain’t there yet. I’m proud of what I’ve done so far, but I’ve still got a loooooong ways to go.
And I figure that if I can help people like me along my journey, then I’ve done something right.
What You Can Expect From My Blog
My no-bullshit approach to veganism, healthy living, spiritual wellness, and life.
I wanna make sure that even people who aren’t “there yet”, or maybe not even close, can take something away from my blog.
Even if that’s only one thing out of 20…or 40…or 100.
I will always encourage you to do your own research. If I’ve piqued your interest in something new, go look it up, read lots of books, find communities, ask questions…
I’ll link the sources I’ve used to give you a little nudge in the right direction.
And I’ll never recommend a product or service that I don’t like or believe in.
I will always tell you when I think something is great, terrible, or just “meh”.
Because that’s what you deserve from me.
