Tessa Hughes
Hey! My name is Tessa and i’m 19 years old. I went to school in Chicago for a semester for PR and fashion design, but knew that just wasn’t what I wanted to do with my life.  So, in my semester off of college, I’ve found my true calling, FOOD. Plus I have my Personal Trainers certification from ISSA, so I know a thing or two about fitness 😉 I have two wonderful furry sons: Camden-Louis (white) & Kevin-Douglas (dark), and a equally as furry cat daughter: Lucky. (Could you tell that I’ve had my cat longer by her name???) I am also dating a wonderful man, Dota! He loves me, just not enough to be vegan. Which is why this website has vegan and their non-vegan counterparts.  Although I recommend it 😉

Maddie Fischer
Hi! My name is Madeline Fischer and I’m going to be helping Tessa with the environmental/nature section of this blog! I’m 19 years old and just finished my sophomore year at UW-Madison. I am double majoring in Life Sciences Communication and Environmental Studies and on top of helping with this blog this summer I will be working as a field research assistant for the Wisconsin Crop and Weed Science program and I will also be interning as an editorial assistant for the Wisconsin Idea.
All of these things successfully combine my two loves: the outdoors and writing. I’m not entirely sure what I want to do after I graduate, but I hope that in what ever I do I can help make the world a better place through showing the public the importance of protecting our natural resources and subsequently create beneficial changes in policy.
Aside from my academic passions, I love hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, skiing, and basically anything that involves me playing outside.
I am not vegan, however I have stopped eating beef for reasons that I will outline in my posts. I hope to educate you on what exactly goes into your meat and let you make an educated decision regarding what kinds of food you buy, because in a capitalist society such as ours here in the United States, your dollar can be just as good as a vote.
