My name is Emily Capshaw, and I am thrilled to be joining the blogging team here at Rainbeau Mars Lifestyles! For my first post, it seems appropriate to tell you all a little bit about myself, as well as what I hope to bring to you through my posts!
I was fortunate enough to have been raised in Colorado by a health conscious mother, so leading a healthy lifestyle has always been something on my radar. However, I am always learning more and finding new ways to contribute to the well being of not only my own body and spirit, but also the health of our planet. I made the decision to become a vegetarian at 14, thinking it would be a temporary experiment. Once I realized how much better I felt, I never had the desire to go back to eating meat. As I continue to learn more about healthy eating, I feel as though I have discovered a whole new world of delectable foods, rather than feeling trapped or limited by the decision. In a addition to my work with RML, I am passionate about creating stories that people can connect to through music and film. I seek to live my life in such a way that the world may be filled with a little more beauty through the power of art and creativity. It is an honor to work alongside a team that shares these same goals.
I will be writing about the things I have learned along my path to a healthier and more sustainable life. I hope you find my future posts inspiring to you in your own personal journey towards a healthier future!
