We're Ben and Kelly Zugay, and we're on a mission to live small and give big!

Since 2015, we've been on a renovating and decorating our well-loved 800 square foot condo — our home on Harvest!

When we're not biking, hiking, kayaking, and enjoying beautiful western Wisconsin, Ben is a a university-level entrepreneurship educator and I'm a small business owner.

Today, I’m so excited to share one of my all-time favorite vegan, plant-based recipes! I could make this recipe every day — and, honestly, sometimes I do make it a few days in a row! It’s a sweet potato with an avocado cilantro topping. It’s simple, easy to create, and it uses everyday ingredients you probably already have […]

Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) offer a wide variety […]
