Hello, my name is Amy and I live in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York. I relocated to this area after living in New York City for 13 years, but I am originally from the fine state of New Jersey. I work from home as a project manager for a financial services firm and in my spare time I volunteer for a local arts organization, take voice lessons, occasionally perform in regional theater, and actively participate in the local community.  I am a practitioner of Shambhala, a Buddhist practice that believes that individuals can create enlightened society one moment at a time.  As a former addict, I am also a member of a 12-step community.   Over the past several years, I have been transitioning to a plant-based diet — for me that means that I avoid processed foods, dairy and meat.  I do not call myself a vegan because I occasionally eat cheese, milk, fish, and even the rare red meat dish — but I may someday.  The purpose of this blog is to share my strategies for transitioning to a healthier way of life both physically and spiritually and my belief that human beings are capable of making tremendous changes in their lives.  I am glad to have made some in mine, and look forward to the changes yet to come.

    Inspiring blog you have here. It’s great that you are transitioning or have transitioned to a plant-based diet. I’ve been a vegetarian for 14 years and don’t miss meat at all. I’ve been vegan on and off for 6 or 7 years.
