If you are vegan or are thinking about testing out veganism, figuring out how to eat out can seem intimidating. I studied up on veganism for over a year before I made the jump because I wanted to ensure I was fully prepared. So that when I went to a restaurant, my insatiable need for delicious food was in fact met.
I love a food journal. It’s the first thing I get my clients to do. Besides drinking lemon water of course! There are so many ways to keep a food journal so I’m going to teach you my method for optimal health, good digestion, maximum energy, and overall increased wellness.
I’m not one of those vegans who turns up their nose at "meat alternatives”. Which is odd because I never liked meat. Especially red meat. It would take me like an hour to eat 1/4 of a burger. Cutting out meat was not a struggle for me at all. Which is interesting why I’ll pour down a huge impossible burger. But that’s for another psycho-analyzation time.
I have tried Loma’s tuna in a can and really enjoyed it so I wanted to try out this easy and ready to go tuna preseasoned!
I love a good budget. When I was younger I never ever wanted to spend money. I was a hoarder of money. In my opinion, not a bad thing to be. When I went to college and started my own grocery shopping, I tried to keep it around $30-40 per week for 21 meals. Oh yeah, you heard that right.
I’ve had Ripple chocolate milk before and it is pretty tasty. I think it’s a great addition to a smoothie. It’s thick, creamy, and just chocolatey enough. However, it still has that tiny bit of chalky taste due to the pea protein. Overall though, I think it’s a great plant based milk and especially great for kids.
I use to be obsessed with meal plans. Like tell me EXACTLY what to eat and I’ll do it. But I need specifics. I liked knowing that that the guess work was taken out of what to eat and all I had to do was cook. I searched out meal plans and found ones I liked and paid quite a bit of money over time for them.
Then when I started really diving into my own health I realized something- meal plans don’t work.
Trying to go vegan can be hard and seem really lonely.
I had the help of Youtube and blogs when I wanted to go vegan back in 2013. I was honestly terrified of it because I loved food and didn’t want to have to miss out on anything.
There are few things worse than trying to be healthy but everything becomes so dang complicated. You want to make a healthy dinner for you or your family and the recipe has a trillion ingredients all of which you have to buy at Whole Foods.
No thank you.
Let’s be honest. Coffee is delicious. I’m more of a mocha kinda woman but even if you like it black, pumpkin spiced, or venti, coffee isn’t great for us.
It is delicious but unfortunately can increase stress, anxiety, and raises our cortisol levels. If you suffer from anxiety or adrenal fatigue this is the blog for you. Even if you’re just trying to cut back on the amount of caffeine you drink, this is going to be your golden ticket.
