Hi!  I’m Jen, and I run the Habitat for Happiness YouTube channel and blog. My content is all about being vegan, reading books and going on adventures.

I went vegetarian on January 4th 2004 and vegan in 2008. It has been an amazing journey.  My primary motivation for going vegan was for ethical reasons – I love animals!  I’ve also been happy to discover all of the health benefits associated with eating plant based and how much better it is for the environment than a traditional animal based diet.  I believe that life is a journey and I consider myself a very loving, non-judgmental vegan.  If you respect me, I will respect you! I love sharing the foods I eat, the products I discover and the recipes I love.

I have always enjoyed reading.  As a child I loved the Animal Arc series by Ben M. Baglio, as a teenager I was (and still am) all about the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling and as a young adult I got stuck reading tons and tons and TONS of textbooks for my 7 years of University.  Now, as an adult in my early 30s, I am exploring more authors and genres.  My current favourite author is Juliet Marillier (I love her Sevenwaters series) and my favourite genre is Fantasy, but I am open to reading almost anything!

As far as adventures go, my husband and I LOVE being outdoors.  We spend most weekends discovering new provincial parks and trails in Ontario, Canada with our dog Toby.  We love hiking, biking, canoeing, rollerblading, skiing – if it’s an outdoor activity that involves discovering the beauties of nature you can basically guarantee that I am interested!  We are also huge Disney fans and go to Disney World almost every year. It’s such a magical place and we love the friendly service and vegan options.

Welcome to my blog!  I love making new online friends, so feel free to reach out to me at any time, and don’t forget to follow me over on YouTube!
