IMAG3401

 

Hand on heart I have been vegan for over 3 years now and I have not once in that time craved meat. When I turned vegan I didn’t jump straight to the meat substitutes because I was basically teaching myself how to eat again. So that meant preparing meals completely plant based without the need of meat like substitutes, but I was aware of them. As time has gone on I have experimented with things like veggie sausages, tofu and other soy products and even tried to recreate with veggies. These bbq cauliflower bites are just one of the creations that are delicious, saucy and so simple to make with not a chicken wing in sight. I promise you will enjoy….

So salads are probably the easiest thing to whip up right, you just chop everything up dress or undress it throw into a bowl and EAT. But sometimes they are boring feel like you are just eating air and not very satisfying.

Well okay salad may be put a long side other dish but you catch my drift!!!

This salad is my take on tabbouleh its colourful, refreshing, bright, tasty and interesting everything you could  want in a taste bud tickling summer salad. You don’t need many ingredients but you can make a small amount  or a large amount also take and add what you like. A lot of  the time i just eyeball ingredients but here is what I used for this colourful salad.

Body Transformation Update 2014!!

before and after

 

 

Okay lets get straight to it this ISH is crazy I am not even going to lie!!!

I don’t even know where to begin this picture above provokes all types of thoughts and feelings.

Being on the bigger side for my teenage years and most of my twenties I wouldn’t say was the worst thing ever but it did cause obstacles for me. I have always had confidence and known how to present myself no problem, but being in a body you’re not 100% happy with isn’t good. Hiding you arms, covering your legs and dreading wearing a bikini in summer is not the way to be living life. Feeling like you can’t wear revealing clothing if you chose to and feel sexy or that your body wouldn’t be appealing to a man.When you live life full of boundaries and limitations you stop yourself from experiencing to your full potential.

When I look at that picture of me on the beach in my bikini in Jamaica I find it very hard to believe what my eyes are seeing. At the time I remember feeling pretty alright in my bikini that day and although I did attract a man lol, point being is that I know I wasn’t 100% happy with what I saw. It is a very emotional thing to look at a picture of yourself firstly not recognize that person and secondly just be in complete shock. I always knew I was a bigger lady but at the time I never saw myself how  see myself now looking back. Its like someone went and photo shopped all of my pictures!!

oct before and after

So January 2015 will mark two years since I first started my healthier and fitter lifestyle. I not only decided to change the way I looked at food, treated my body, but also the way I thought mentally a long with my approach to life.  I wanted to be more open, laid back and inspirational it was my mission to achieve succeed and be able to share my experiences. I am no where near finished or done in my journey but I am damn sure proud of myself for how far I have come.

I am just an example of whatever you want it is yours for the taking, take both hands and grab it just do NOT let go!!!

Till next time keep it moving!!

Being Vegan – Part one & two

Hey y’all hope you are all enjoying the late summer sunshine…..

For those of you that know back in December 2013 I decided to embark on a journey to be Vegan. My new healthy lifestyle was already well on its way throughout 2013 and turning vegan was my ultimate high. Over the months I have shared with you (via instagram) my journey through food, tips and progress pics. So nine months later I thought it was about time I sat down and talked to y’all by way of a vlog about the ins and out of my vegan journey so far. I will continue to share, inform and support anyone that wants to bring healthier elements into their lives. Whether it is dairy free, gluten free or just food prep,no matter how big or small the changes are.
Hope you all enjoy, subscribe and like if you want me to keep it coming.

Random Vlog #3 – Health and Awareness!

 

So I made this random Vlog the other day whilst walking, I felt like talking about more serious matters. I really think we as young people and just even people need to start looking at things which are important.

People like to shy away from the serious stuff that requires you to educate yourself. Don’t just live how others tell you to think outside the box and equip yourself with the right knowledge so that you can be aware in life.

I like to talk about the material stuff don’t get me wrong but that is not all life is, it has very many layers that need to be peeled back. So in this video I have vaguely mentioned CANCER as I feel it is just becoming like the flu these days. I may go into that subject in more depth as I feel that it isn’t really talked about or explored properly. People need to know how to look after themselves and not just rely on the so-called health system to make them better.

Our bodies are not synthetic so why use synthetic drugs to cure??

Don’t live in a box or just run on the same treadmill as everyone else educate yourself and learn how to really take care of yourself!!!
