UNIVERSAL STUDIOS ORLANDO/ Orlando Vegan Food

  Heyyy guys! I just LOVE traveling and finding vegan options in new places to share with you! THIS trip in particular did NOT let me down. In fact, it surpassed ALLLLL my expectations! (don’t you just love when that happens?) *I do apologize for the lack of quality in the photos. I was on…

Vegan PESTO

Pestoooo. YUM. without the rape or torture of ANIMALS. even more YUM. At the end of a busy week, I go into my kitchen and what do I find? Spinach that desperately needs to be used up. Basil leaves barely hangin’ on. And fresh kale that I knew I should eat but didn’t wanna make…

Being Vegan in Paris

P A R I S. A city we all dream of visiting. Or at least I have. But I must say I’ve never been in a rush to go. I always thought a trip to this beautiful place would be later on in my life. In a world where I’m a married woman and am spending this…

Crispy Chickpeak Cakes

If you know me, you know I love my grandmother. When I first moved off on my own, I left without knowing how to really cook. The one recipe I had, I used the heck out of. It was my favorite thing my granny would make me! Salmon croquettes accompanied by white rice, green peas…

Delicious White Beans & Greens

Cannellini Beans! AKA White Kidney Beans. I saw them in the store the other day and decided to give them a try. I’ve never bought white beans before so I had no idea what to expect or what they would go well with. I had just got home from the gym so I was craving…

Soul Searching in Oakland 

…and by that I mean, I found vegan soul food. In Oakland, California. And I think I left my heart on the table. Souley Vegan is one of the few vegan places I heard about existing during my first trip to the Bay Area. Unfortunately, they are closed on Mondays so I wasn’t able to…

listen to your body

This is something I have failed at over and over again but have finally learned. Making the decision to accept what my body is telling me has been one of the best things I could ever do! How many times do our bodies try to communicate with us but we ignore what it is saying?…

new year, new me.

yeah yeah yeah…I know everyone hates that saying. But you know what? right now, that’s just exactly how I’m feeling. I’m going to share with you one of the health goals I’ve made for myself in 2015: Drink MORE water. YES… water is the only thing I drink (besides smoothies & fresh juices) BUT I have always struggled…

Garlic Cajun Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

I love potatoes. And I love fries. And sometimes I like them sweet & spicy. One of my favorite things to eat and make! Hope you love them as much as I do! Check out the video below to make them at home.

Thought of The Day

Imagine if we looked like what we ate… We’d care A LOT more about what we allowed into our bodies, wouldn’t we? No, not just the occasional acne breakouts, weight gains and losses, etc. that we all know of. I’m talking about if our foods REALLY reflected our diets physically. . So I ask, If you looked like the…

Dear Stranger

Dear Stranger, No…I don’t just eat salads. No…tofu is not the only way I can get my protein. No…I’m not “doing this” to be skinny. Yes actually, I eat a whole lot and am constantly stuffing my face with food. So no, I’m not starving myself.  No, cheese doesn’t have to be from a dairy source…

What?

Question- WHAT DOES VEGAN MEAN? Answer- I DO NOT CONSUME ANYTHING THAT COMES FROM AN ANIMAL. One day, I woke up and I realized…WOW, an animal doesn’t have to die OR suffer for me to LIVE! (AND EAT AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS NUTRITIOUS FOOD) *DROOLS* I live a beautiful, energetic life. And many meat eaters do too! But it brings…
