What started as a 15-day vegan challenge, ended in a complete overhaul of the way I took care of my mind, body and soul. I started to share my results on my personal page and after an overwhelming response, a brown girl health advocate was born—inspiring others to make healthier choices one meal, one product and one mantra at a time. I earned a plant-based nutritional certification from e-Cornell University.


My blog is a collection of all the neat tips, tricks and hacks I’ve learned along the way to remain centered, fit, healthy and happy.  I’ll show you how I do it all without sacrificing myself or my kids.  Plus, you’ll learn how to do it without taking too much of your time, energy or money.  I give it to you straight, there’s no long essays here, just the nuts and bolts.  You don’t have the time to read and I don’t have the time to write it!

More About Me…

My name is Zakkiya, I’m 37, mom living just 20 minutes outside of New York City. I’ve spent over 15 years as a marketing and event consultant with some of the most well known entertainment brands and raised over 1mm for a Grammy award-winning artist’s non-profit.  After having my first child, I decided to become a full-time mom.  I was happy and fulfilled but still felt like something was missing. I started on a self-discovery that has not stopped, and likely never will. Along the way, I’ve evolved into a meditating, PTAing, mantra-saying, DIY crafting, host with the most, on again & off again (but mostly on) vegan, and an organic beauty junkie who will workout just about anywhere except a gym!
