Jacquelyn Scoggin

Graphic designer by day, vegetarian cook and food blogger by night

Jacquelyn Scoggin became a vegetarian at the age of 16 and has since been in the kitchen whipping up meals for her family and friends. She writes and photographs her love for vegetarian food on her blog, So Good & Tasty. In 2009, she and her husband started Slide Sideways (slide-sideways.com), a graphic design and handmade business. They maintain their love for the environment by using organic fabric, recycled paper, and environmentally friendly cleaning products.

My philosophy: Everyday you make choices and each choice you make brings you to where you want to be. I believe in making the most of each day, surrounding myself with good people, and putting good, nutritional food into my belly. These things keep me happy.

If I weren’t doing what I do now, I’d probably be: I'm one of those jack of all trades people, so I feel like I could be doing anything as long as it keeps me happy and fulfilled.

Favorite piece of advice: My mom always simply said to my sister and I, “Life is what you make it.” I get that now.
