Hi my name is Jenn. I am a mom, wife, and independent woman who has struggled all her life with anxiety, depression and lack of self worth that manifested into a wild and high-stress lifestyle and rapid uncontrollable weight gain.
After many years of facing psychological and physical health issues with no answers from doctors, I decided to take matters into my own hands and transform my life for the sake of myself and my family. This led me to exploring the worlds of plant-based nutrition and self-healing through food, mindset and self-care.
NeuroticMommy started as my Instagram photo-journal of my plant-based recipes and holistic lifestyle that helped me transform from a sad 260lbs neurotic woman leading an unhealthy and processed-filled life to a healthy and happy mother and certified holistic health coach. It has now grown into a destination for mothers with help on how to lead a plant-based lifestyle for the health of herself and her family; a safe space for moms to unite over their shared desire to find balance in mommyhood, womanhood and life; and a haven for female inspiration, empowerment and self-care. My goal is for moms to know that they’re not alone and that it is possible to find balance amidst the chaos — I’ve been where you’ve been. NM is here to help you along your journey to health and happiness.

I am a New-Jersey based vegan food and lifestyle writer who is part neurotic and 100% mommy.
Like many women, I have struggled with anxiety, depression and lack of self worth that had manifested into rapid uncontrollable weight gain and self-sabotage. After many years of facing psychological and physical health issues with no answers from doctors, I decided to take matters into my own hands and transform my life for the sake of myself and my family. This led me to exploring the worlds of plant-based nutrition and self-healing through food, mindset and self-care and becoming a holistic health coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
Through my passion for supporting women in their journey towards health and happiness for themselves and their families, I have been named one of the Top Plant-Based Instagram Foodies for Inspiration and Passion by Thrive Magazine and have been featured in BuzzFeed, Huffington Post and Yahoo.
In 2012, I founded my food blog NeuroticMommy (www.neuroticmommy.com) and have since maintained my status as one of Top Mommy Blogs to follow. My food inspirations come from taking the complexities of cooking vegan out of the kitchen through the creation of simple, quick, sustainable and healthy recipes that the whole family will love.
What started as solely a food blog loved by women who seek healthy plant-based alternatives to everyday recipes has expanded into a lifestyle brand focused on mothers, their work/life/self balance, and their families’ health and happiness. With content on Mindset & Wellness, a shopping portal called Holistic Living, and a video series where neurotic meets mommy called #MOMTALK. NeuroticMommy is a destination for moms worldwide who are seeking balance amidst the chaos of juggling mommy-hood, marriage and work and come to NM for inspiration on food, life and self-care.
