Playing in Malibu

Hi Y’all, I am Jenny. A mom of 3 with a deep inner desire for health, happiness, travel and adventure.  Jenny Garvinyasa (formerly the texitarian) began in 2012 as a creative outlet while I was living as an expat in Calgary.  It was a way to stay connected to my roots by sharing traditional Texas inspired recipes with a whole foods perspective.

In 2013 our family took a four month road trip across the U.S. Living in our RV full-time, spent the next eight months living in an old farm house in west Texas on a working farm and cattle ranch, and found out that we were expecting our third little girl.  In 2014 we moved back to our home town of Dallas and couldn’t be happier to be home close to our family and friends.

I took a break from blogging for a couple of years after the arrival of our third daughter.  During that time I was busy creating my eBook, Plant Based Palate (available here on Amazon),  and completing my 200 hr yoga teacher training.


I am also an artist, with a passion for painting and creating.  I occasionally make some pieces of my work is available here at my Etsy shop, Opal and Eve.

When I am not writing the blog, I enjoy being barefoot in the garden, soaking up the sun on a hike, or spending time on my yoga mat.

I would love to hear from y’all, so say hello below!  Or follow random bits of my life through the lens of my phone on Instagram
