THE FACE BEHIND THE BLOG

Hi! I'm Marlee and started Sweet Health Nut back in 2011 when I began my journey toward a natural lifestyle.

I'm the web editor of an interior design and architecture magazine by day, and a health and wellness enthusiast at all times (blogger on evenings and weekends!)

I'm a health-conscious vegetarian, vegan flirt, skincare sampler, beauty junkie, acne fighter, yoga enthusiast, feminist and hopeless giggler who strives to enjoy every last drop life's sweetness.

{video} :: how food doc “hungry for change” will change your life

I just posted a new YouTube video inspired by the food documentary “Hungry for Change” because it had a massive impact on me. The doc is obviously about food and health, but the final message at the end of the documentary really struck a chord with me and connects EVERYTHING together. Seriously. It connects food,...

Screw labels! Be your best self. Don’t feel like you need to fit into a mold.

  I love this video so much. I’m such a fan of Fran and her website (www.highonhealth.com). It’s so hard to try to confine yourself in such a specific box when everybody’s bodies are different. I think that we need to do the best we can for our bodies and really listen to what our...

Orthorexia Nervosa – Taking Healthy Eating to the Extreme

The following is a post that I made in February of 2011 on my Tumblr account. I wrote this when I was heading in the direction of a food and health obsession. Everything I wrote is still accurate and relevant, except my emotional and mental connection to eating has changed since then. I no longer...
One Argument: Why Humans Bodies Aren't Physiologically Apt to Consume Meat

One Argument: Why Humans Bodies Aren’t Physiologically Apt to Consume Meat

The second we put food in our mouths, the digestion process begins, thanks to our saliva. Guess what? Our alkaline saliva is not meant to break down animal flesh; carnivores have acid saliva, perfectly designed for the task. And hydrochloric acid, essential for digesting carcass, is secreted in very small amounts in our stomachs. However,...

I seriously can’t remember the last time I had a hotdog. So back to my cousins hotdogs. I quickly realized that...

I discovered the perfect vegan crepe recipe!

So after making about 10 different crepe recipes, I finally found the perfect one. The reason this mission was so hard for me is because I set very strict guidelines: no white flour (including your typical all-purpose flour), no eggs, no dairy, no white sugar. Here’s my holy grail recipe. Please let me know if...
