My Story

Me and My TurkeyHello Internet, my name is Natt Smith and I’m a vegan studying to be a plant based nutritionist, wellness coach and personal trainer.  I believe in a “wholistic” approach to nutrition consisting of a whole foods, plant based diet which resulted with me losing over 80 pounds.  I have made so many positive life changes since embarking on this compassionate lifestyle.  What for me started as a means to lose weight blossomed into a deep love and respect for earth and all her inhabitants.  I want The Clean Eating Vegan to be your go to source for all things fitness, health and plant based nutrition.  Welcome to The Clean Eating Vegan family!  Loads of Love, Natt


The vegan reads cat magazineThis morning I spent four hours on social networking sites and what did I have to show for it?   I haven’t physically moved all morning unless you count the multiple trips to the kitchen to refill my coffee mug WHICH I DO. I haven’t read anything of merit nor did I watch anything that would better my life. I’m fixing to change this. I’m dubbing June the MONTH OF REALLY GOOD TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS AND ENRICHMENT BONANZA! Please join along with me on my mission to have a more productive month.

Wisdom of a 26 Year Old


In light of the recent events surrounding North Korea and a recent transition to my 26th year I’m taking more time to reflect on the meaning of life and all I’ve learned up to this point.   It’s been nearly 4 years since I graduated from university and it’s been one hell of a ride; Asian adventures, failed relationships, new friends, starting smoking, quitting smoking, discovering Games of Thrones… I’m not claiming to have it all figured out but I’ve learned some things that I’d like to pass along.   Don’t live without purpose.
