A place for the plant-curious, health-conscious food & wine lover

You’re not plant-based or vegan but you are health-conscious, concerned with the environment and want to help contribute to a better planet.

You love food but you also want to eat healthfully. You love traveling, experiencing the world, learning new things, and having fun.

You are interested in, but get a tad overwhelmed when thinking about how to compose a wholesome, nutritious plant-based meal that is going to taste delicious and fill you up. Much less cook it! 

Heck, you might even be plant-based already but just need some fresh, new ideas and want to learn more about how to eat to achieve a specific goal.

You’re in the right place if you’ve considered yourself ‘plant-curious’ for a while and are wondering if you can actually make the change and go vegan…or at least add in a lot more plants in your diet.

I started my business because I was skeptical and a bit scared of taking the big leap of going vegan.

I felt in my heart that it was the right thing to do, but I was worried I wasn’t going to be able to adjust, do and eat the things I loved to do to before, and even continue in my business (which was food based).

When my life improved exponentially in all areas as a result of making these changes, I realized all the ‘difficulties’ were all in my head.

I knew I needed to share my experiences and help others who feel like I did, but are a bit stuck and not quite sure where to start or what to do.

My life began to change as I stopped traveling the world with international pop stars and rappers as a marketing executive for record labels to attending culinary school and taking wine classes and then starting my own full-time business as a food and wine consultant, and health and life coach.

Today after working across 4 industries, living in 4 different countries, and working with thousands of people from around the world I embody and am intimately familiar with what it takes to go through a transformation. I am honored to support you on your journey, whether that’s through my blogs (here and on Arctic Grub), ebooks, or private coaching.

With love and plants,

“I decided to work with Sunny to see if a vegan lifestyle was something I could manage. I’ve been a vegetarian most of my adult life and although I knew dairy was not good for me I couldn’t fathom giving up cheese. A health coach was exactly what I needed.

Sunny’s meal plan was so easy, delicious and Filling! She designed a plan to fit my busy schedule and made giving up dairy a thing of the past. I don’t miss it at ALL and my eczema has completely cleared up! I cut out sugar, but didn’t give up wine, just had a little less of it. Losing weight was not my biggest goal, but after only 4 weeks the pounds starting melting away and I was down 10 lbs! I was amazed and people were noticing.

I can’t praise Sunny enough for these amazing results. I couldn’t have done it without her!“
