Introductions & Salutations

Hello blogosphere. I am here to make my internet residency with you for at least the time being. My name is Steph and I am kind of (and when I say kind of, I mean extremely) passionate about finding little ways to make a healthy lifestyle not only easy, but fun! I am about to finish college in a month-ish (ohmygod) and in order to calm my sporadic meltdowns about my upcoming future (like the one I'm currently having), I thought I would create this little blog baby.

So come with me, dear reader, as we venture down this tunnel of blogness together, arms intertwined, skipping the entire way. Yeah, I don't know... I just wanted to use this picture:



Years ago, I tried finding websites and videos on youtube about home and beauty products that are clean of gross ingredients. I never really found exactly what I wanted, which is one of the main inspirations for me to make this blog. I want to create the blog I was once looking for. My second, and equally awesome inspiration, is my "one man (not really) crusade" against the idea that healthy food means not-as-good-as-regular-food. I think I KNOW that healthy food can be just as good, if not better, than non-healthy food. And I want to be here to share yummy recipes, snacks, etc. with you. Many of my recipes will be vegan, gluten free and sugar free. But don't worry non-vegan bread and sugar eaters, you will love these recipes too!

I am not vegan, nor do I lead a 100% sugar and gluten free lifestyle. However, I do believe that if possible, one should eat healthy alternatives. Especially if they are as easy to make as regular food. Healthy cooking does not mean difficult cooking. I'm telling you right now that my recipes are not going to be difficult (unless I decide to get super fancy every once in a while -- I've always wanted to try to make french macarons, but I digress). Healthy cooking does not mean expensive either. Don't believe me? Stay tuned for upcoming posts and you will seeeee!

Now that you know a little bit about my food philosophy, I hope you come by and interact with this blog. I don't want to say that this blog is going to be strictly a food blog or clean products blog. I plan to  post many random things. Let's call this... a lifestyle blog? Yes, a lifestyle blog. Sounds fancy.
So, if you want to see something random, find something yummy and healthy to make and maybe get inspired to use a new product, please stop by and check things out.

Also, I have a twitter. Crazy, I know! Follow me, if you want. If not, it's cool. My handle is @excoffeetweets

That's it for now. See ya lata.

P.S. I will be SO excited if you comment on my posts. Talk to me! Please. Talk. To. Me. I will respond. Let's be internet friends.
