About the Meticulous Mama
The Meticulous Mama blog is a blog for dreamers. Dreamers who want more out of life. It’s a place where we realize we don’t have to settle for the status quo. A place where we deserve more than the mediocre. This blog is for those who are hungry to discover all that life can provide. The Meticulous Mama was created with the intention of learning to live life your way. A way in which your heart, mind, body and soul all connect.
Hi, I’m Suzanne Yang Jaochico. I am wife and a mother of two beautiful children. Four year old “Kuya” (older brother in Tagalog) and one year old “Sissy Boo”. I am also a writer, blogger and speaker. Through my writing and speaking I share what it means to be human. The fears, the frustrations and how I’ve worked through and with them to come to one of the most fulfilling points of my life.
Shortly after Sissy Boo was born I decided to go on a 3-week sugar detox in order to become healthier and to lose some of my pregnancy weight. Little did I know, this detox would literally change my life.
During the detox I began to learn more about food, the food industry and how food affects my body. I began to change the way my family and I ate by shopping primarily at farmers’ markets and adopting a whole-food plant-based diet. I took note of what I was putting into my body and in turn began to pay attention to what I was putting into other areas of my life.
As a result, I realized that all of my life I had been chasing after someone else’s dream – the stereotypical “American Dream”. I had done everything by the book. I graduated with honors from college, I got great jobs and before I was 30 I landed a “dream job” with Apple. It was after this sugar detox that I realized I needed to discover what truly makes me happy. Shortly after realizing this I made the decision to leave my career in Silicon Valley. It hasn’t been easy, but it has been one of the best decisions of my life.
I now vow to live life with as much intention as possible. This blog is my platform for sharing my imperfect intentional journey.
