{Preface} Before I give you a little introduction to myself and my blog, I wanted to say thank you. Somehow, you stumbled across my blog, you took the time to read my daily rambling and to look through my mediocre attempts at food photography. You took the time to leave me compliments, kind words, thoughts, and questions. This blog is my little corner for peace, inspiration, and creativity, and you are the life of my work.

So, thank you....

...and Hello! My name is Veronica. At the moment, my life is consumed by my very hectic and busy life as a med student, and by my love for living a healthy and happy life (or trying to at least!). Welcome to my blog - a place for my daily reflections on this life of mine, for my food chronicles, and my
special adventures. This is a personal project and labor of love.

Ever since I first started blogging at Happy By Nature, I've been trying to discover the true identity/shape/form that I wanted my blog to take. Being an avid blog reader, I knew that I wanted my blog to accurately portray me as :

  • a person, friend, daughter, and medical student = compassionate, fun, crazy, busy, stressed, but always happy at the end of the day

  • a health nut = food, fitness, and lifestyle

  • a lover of all things kind (earth-friendly & animal-friendly)

  • ...and a simple human being who seeks to find beauty, joy, and kindness in everyone and everything

What I couldn't figure out was how to solidify all of this... How often to post? Which recipes to feature? What products to review? How much to include about my personal daily life? etc. etc. Over time, I realized that I was overthinking it waaay too much! Just blog, I told myself!

But I wanted to start fresh once again. And with the new year My Eats and Treats was born!

Through My Eats, I will share with you my daily meals, to hopefully inspire you to experiment in the kitchen and to fall in love with wholesomeseasonal, and (mostly) plant-based eating. Through trial and error I have finally found a lifestyle that works for me - wholesome and healthy. I am not an anything “-itarian”, but I enjoy vegetarian foods most of the time.  At the end of the day, I want my lifestyle to represent my awareness and conscientiousness of what is good for me and for the planet, and what I think might help you feel good, too! Whenever possible, I will try to include as much reliable information about healthy living that I've learned as a medical student.

Through My Treats, I will share with you my old & new favorite things (edible & not!), discoveries, projects, places, activities, and people. These are all "treats" to me because in midst of my very hectic life as a medical student, they remind me of the many wonderful, beautiful, delicious, inspiring, and uplifting things outside my med school bubble.

Over time, I hope My Eats & Treats becomes a great resource and inspiration for health, fitness, travel, beauty, and fashion created for anyone who wants to turn each day into a sweet treat!

So please stop by to learn about my daily eats & treats and to share your own!



P.S. I will be compiling a Recipes page. Please be patient! Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy the little joys of my daily life as a medical student, a foodie, and a simple human.
