When you wake up and just want to go back to sleep, you gotta keep moving forward. When you don't want to workout, make yourself and keep moving forward. When those cookies are calling your name, remember your goals and keep moving forward. When you're not seeing results fast enough, don't quit and keep moving forward. We all will have challenging days but the key is to remain focused and keep moving forward.💪#notetoself #personalpeptalkNew month, same goals!😂I set out to walk my normal 2.5 miles after my lifting workout but today I felt like walking more!

By doing my research I found I could make my own cheese! Yep! It's super easy too! I literally boil some potatoes and carrots, add nutritional yeast, water and some seasonings, blend and cazamm! CHEESE!! I use it for pasta, nachos, pour it over veggies, broc casserole, soup and much more!I am settling into this vegan life pretty well I'd say!😋😊A healthy lifestyle doesn't come by wishing!😘Cinnamon apples is a yummy little treat!🍎🍏😋Better than I was yesterday.😘I was craving some bbq wings, plant style!😘 #cauliflowerwings #veganlife #fitveganRoasted chickpeas!🤗 Super easy and yummy!😘One day at a time.😘Can't wait to make everyone jealous tonight at work with my Seitan salad with vegan ranch dressing on the side!🤗😋Eating healthy stuff makes me happy!🤗😍I figured I'd get a shirt that fits my lifestyle!😜🐴I'm on my way y'all!💪Seriously!! If you're like me and have digestive issues from time to time I would encourage you to start drinking kombucha! There are so many flavors but this one here really gets my gut in order! It even says it on the bottle! #followyourgut #probiotic5 months today!🤗 This journey is AHHMAZING! (In my Oprah voice)!☺ Seriously, the best decision I have made for my life y'all!🌿🍓🍀🥕 Happy Saturday!😘 #proudofmyjourney #clapformydangself #poweredbyplantsI got my prescription filled today!😘
#medicine #plantlifeEat the rainbow!😘I don't know what y'all eating this evening but the hubs and I threw down on these stuffed peppers!😋 I topped them with a homemade nacho cheese sauce and vegan sour cream! He ate 2 and I ate one! He said, "these are real good babe! Thanks!" I feel all warm inside when he likes my food!❤
The mixture is seitan, jasmine rice, black beans, corn and salsa. I mixed that all up in a pan and then stuffed the peps with it! Baked at 350 covered for 20 minutes! 😘They say a healthy outside starts with what I put inside!😘 Cheers!😋It all starts with what I put in my fridge!😘1 cucumber, 1 green pepper, 1 green and red apple, a handful of spinach, a handful of kale, 1 chard leaf, 1 leek leaf, 1 zucchini, half of a garlic clove, alittle piece of ginger and a squeeze of fresh lemon!😋 KALE YEAH!🌿🥒
#drinkinmyveggiesYou'll never hear me say that I'm hungry at work!😘Never give up!😘When your handsome husband follows your lead!💖 He made these all by himself!😁Eating food that loves me back!😗A good way for me to get both fruit and veggies in is to mix them up in a bowl and eat em! I don't care for celery by itself but mixed up with other pretty stuff, I can deal!😋 #plantlife😊I want the hubs and I to eat good snacks so this is what I choose to do!😘Just simply proud of my husband!😘 #teamhealthyIs currently taking a course to be a Holistic Nutrition Specialist!🤗🌿This box of goodies makes me happy!😊 #loveamazonprimeI read recently that 90% of us don't eat the "recommended" 9 servings of fruit and veg a day.😐 Here's a visual of my 9 servings.😊I'm making a conscious effort to get it in daily!🤗Have a sweet tooth? Frozen grapes are where it's at!😋I call them my little healthy popsicle bites!😊Nom. Nom.😋Feeling souper!😋I don't chase rainbows, I eat them!😘Eat your veggies, dream big, mind your business, and be nice to people!😘I don't throw around super heavy weights anymore. I don't get cray with the cardio workouts either. I no longer stress about what I put in my mouth. Just a simple 3 mile walk and some light lifting to keep my bones strong is enough to suffice me these days!😘
#fitvegan💪Little by little, from glory to glory!😘Ooh, homemade chili mac!😋Dressing up my raw veggies with some homemade hummus! Literally, the easiest things to make! Good way to get some beans in to!😘
-1 can organic chickpeas drained and rinsed
-smoked paprika(I put it in everything)
-celery salt(any seasonings I'm sure would do)
-water, you can also do almond milk
I mixed it in my magic bullet!Finally mastered tofu!🤗 I made a batter of whole wheat flour, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, black pepper, sea salt and pan fried it with olive oil! Hubby says it's a hit!😋 Tofu is super cheap! It's less than 2 bucks a block!In case you need a good laugh today!😘I've changed!😊 #nevergiveupWhen you on that #plantlife soaking beans is everything!😘 #fitveganHaving candy for breakfast!😜 #fitveganWho needs Smoothie King?☺ I like to freeze fresh fruit and then make smoothies or nice cream with it!😋Super convenient! This is frozen banana, blueberries and mango. Fresh raspberries and strawberries blended with some ground chia seeds and almond milk! Then topped with fresh blueberries and ground flaxseed! Antioxidant rich and super yummy!😍I am a fruitavore!🍓😋When you want Chinese food!😋 #soydelicious☺ #happyvegan😊I love my Bio Coffee but y'all this here is da bomb! A great all day pick me up with benefits! It's made with cold brewed coffee and has hints of almond and vanilla too!😋Peanut butter banana pops!!! Great for the kiddos and us big kids!😋😘
*stick a straw or popsicle stick gently in each half banana, set on a pan with parchment paper and freeze. Once frozen, take them out and cover the best you can with peanut butter. It's ok if their not completely covered!😉 I'm sure almond butter would work as well! Freeze again. If you end of having any left over, place each one in a Ziploc bag and keep frozen! These are yummy and great for summer!😘Having some burgs tonight!😋 #plantlife🌿I will be 39 in exactly a week and I am feeling healthier than ever!My hubby took me on a surprise 3 day trip to Miami Beach for my birthday!Today I took a bag with me and picked up trash I saw during my walk! I didn't get 2 miles before my bag was filled up!😊If I don't make these, I want cookies!😆The struggle!😄 Happy Saturday!This eggless egg sandwich is everything! So good I want another one!😋
1 container of extra firm organic tofu drained, pressed and then crumbled. I then used my ninja and chopped up 1 celery stalk and about a 1/4 red onion. I added Veganaise and mustard to my liking! I seasoned the batch with sea salt and smoked paprika! I used green leaf lettuce and sprouted grain bread toasted! If I had a tomato I would have put that on there too!😄 #plantlife🌿My lunch is better then yours!😜

I made it this morning and it's ready now but I'm saving it as a yummy breakfast in the a.m. for hubby and I! I probably will end up transferring it to a bigger jar and adding more almond milk!😋I crochet to be inspired, to express myself, for relaxation and so I don't unravel!😁 On a bad day, there's always crochet!😘 #crochettherainbowWe all have our days when feelings, circumstances and people get the best of us!

#plantlife #happyvegan #soyummy😋 #hubbymadethem😍So you miss a few workouts, you gain a couple pounds, you eat an extra cookie, life gets busy, so what! OWN IT and GET BACK IN THE GAME!😘#fruitworm🤭😋In my happy zone!😊#prettycolors #yarntherapyLookie what I got in the mail! I'm so gonna frame this baby!!😊 #officiallyofficial💚It feels good to feel good!

This was my first attempt and I'll def be making more!🧡💛💚💖😋It's always worth it!😘 #3milesWe are moving to Jacksonville, Florida from Kansas in October! We've been praying about it for years and now it's time!It's not about being skinny for me. It's about being better then I was yesterday. It's about being mindful of my environment and the food I put in my mouth. It's about being strong, an inspiration for others, fearless and capable of doing what God has called me to do!😘I have 2 choices. Make moves or make excuses! Slayed the pavement today with a 3 mile run!😘Nature's pharmacy!😋Cannellini beans, leeks, spinach and vegetable broth soup!😋Somedays it's not about health or building muscle. It's just therapy!😊When you find on "old me" pic of yourself and just have to compare it to a newer version of you pic!😘 #nevergiveupI am grateful for the pain, the tears, the failures and the struggles that developed the strength I have today! I am proud of the woman that I am as God is continuing to work on me! I will NEVER stop moving cause that's what I was made to do! I am worth every good thing that I want for myself and you are too! Give yourself the chance to change!😘 #nevergiveupOne of my fav things to do in the morning anymore is to make a yummy smoothie! I figure I'm on this kick I better stay on it! I'm always switching it up and trying new things too! This one is fresh kale, acai berry super fruit, banana, blueberries, Energy and Focus pre workout, turmeric and ginger powders, beet powder, unsweetened coconut flakes, one date and almond milk!! My gut is happy, my mind is clear and I'm giving the devil a sucker punch to the throat today if He messes with me!😘Adding these two powerhouses of turmeric and ginger to my daily smoothies have changed the whole game for me! TURMERIC: anti inflammatory, helps with brain function, a potent antioxidant, helps protect against getting diseases and cancer, helps treat depression, etc. GINGER: relieves nausea and muscle soreness, anti inflammatory, reduces menstrual cramps, lowers blood sugars, helps fight infection and also helps protect against getting cancer and other diseases, etc.😘I love putting swiss chard and collard greens in my smoothies! Kale and spinach gets boring sometimes! So many nutrients in these two leaves! I ALWAYS put a date in mine and I can barely tell the greens are there, plus dates are good for you too! We don't eat enough leafy greens as Americans and smoothies is a good way to get them and other healthy stuff in like berries, seeds and herbs!😘 #drinkyourgreens #diseasefighter #immunebooster #foodismedicine #gutcleaner😋😋😋😋😋. My afternoon treat! I call this Super Chocolate Crunch Delight! The cacao sweet nibs on top adds a nice surprise! Who says smoothies have to be boring?
Recipe: 1 frozen banana, 1/2 cup strawberries, 1 scoop of choc plant protein, 1 squeeze of choc Sweet Drops, 1 tsp of Maca powder and super greens powder. 1/4 tsp of turmeric and ginger. 1 spoonful of unsweetened coconut shreds, 1 date and some unsweetened almond milk! So yummy!😋😋😋😋😋 #nocow #plantpower #sweettoothLiterally have said this AT LEAST 56 times!😂I am brave. I am bold. I am fearless. I am passionate. I am strong. I am my own revolution. I am a black vegan.😊Yummy fruit dip!😋😋😋
Recipe: 1 cup of raw cashews or almonds,( I used cashews) soaked for 2 hours(you can use salted but be mindful of sodium😘)Then I blended them with pumpkin spice, cinnamon, vanilla extract, almond extract, 2 dates and coconut water! I DID NOT measure! So easy to eat 2 apples( I could so eat another one) with it and I have plenty of dip for the next couple days!🤗🤗🤗There is seriously nothing better then a fresh glass of orange juice straight from the juicer!😋 Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, boosts the immune system, provides energy, protects against signs of aging, keeps blood pressure in check as well as blood sugars, lowers cholesterol, helps prevent cancer, good for your eyes and prevents IBS!😘 #foodismedicine #holisticnutritionBecause we don't laugh enough!😘😂Super greens avocado dip!😋 Since I'm doing this raw vegan thing, I figure I would get more creative with eating my veggies!😊 Recipe for dip👇
1 medium avocado, 1/4 cup tahini, 1/2 fresh lemon squeeze, 2 fresh kale leaves, a handful of cilantro, 1 garlic clove, 1 tsp of Bragg's liquid aminos, 1/4 tsp of turmeric and alittle water. Blend everything together and enjoy! You can use spinach or any other greens but you gotta have the cilantro, it makes it!😘If I ruin this body, I don't get another one! I'm out here trying to get it!😘Let's smash our goals y'all!😘Cause laughing is good for the soul!😂When the topic of vegans not getting enough protein comes up, I just flex on em, stomach fat and all!😂 #tryingtogetittogether💪 #feelingmyself 😚#onedayatatime😘 #workingonthetummy😊This!!😘You don't know what could happen if you never give up!😘It's exciting to think that some of the best moments of our lives haven't even happened yet!😊 #operationflorida🌴 #2days🤗Just in case you are feeling defeated today!

So pretty!😊
Go as far as you can see, when you get there, you'll be able to see further.😘For real though!😃 Truthfully, I like pushing myself and putting in some hard work but dangit, it ain't hard getting alittle fluffy here and there!😆And sometimes, we just need to color!💛💜🧡💙😊New month. New goals. New start. New mindset. New results. I AM WORTH IT and SO ARE YOU!😘
LET'S GO!!!💪Life is better when you're laughing!😂Not who I used to be! The journey hasn't been easy but it's all worth it! I've struggled so hard, beat myself up, fallen off the wagon but I've always picked myself up and kept going! Never ever give up on yourself, even when you find yourself eating a whole row of oreos at midnight! Own it and move on!😘Have some veggies in the fridge that aren't looking so hot? Throw them in a pot, instead of letting them rot!!😁 Then make some fire soup!😋Hehe🤭When you love your job, it isn't work!😘Happy Friday!😂Super excited to try something new in my juices, smoothies and salads! DANDELION GREENS! They have healing properties for the kidney and liver! They are a natural diuretic, promote bile production and supports gallbladder health! Packed with micronutrients, you just can't go wrong adding them in! This girl is always looking for natural ways to be and stay healthy cause I don't like doctor's offices!😘Now that the holidays are over essentially, it's time to "winter clean" the refrigerator from not so healthy foods, right? You can't expect to eat healthy if all you have is junk in the fridge! If you keep good food in it, you'll eat good food! I got my fridge game on lock! Vibrant, colorful and healthy, I'm ready for whatever!😘Day 3 of my "Kick into gear to start the new year" workout challenge is complete! Rehydrating with a pineapple, orange, collard greens, ginger and lemon fresh juice!😋 Who else is doing a challenge?😊This!😘Day 6! Happy Saturday! I got to pick any cardio workout to do today and I chose Zumba Core! I plan on making a leafy green soup of spinach, red kale, collards, dandelion, beet greens, celery root in place of potato and fresh garlic! I'm trying to incorporate more and more leafy greens and soup is a good way to do that!😘 #personalaccountability#mood😘Part of my success in reaching my goals is to have meals and snacks prepped and ready to go! This is three days worth of food, lunch and dinner for the hubby and I! Lunches are roasted sweet potato, scrambled seasoned tofu, mixed onion and pepper on a bed of fresh spinach and a side of vegan sw ranch. Dinner is beefless crumbles, smoky chipotle rice, black beans, sweet corn, green onion and a side of homemade salsa and vegan sour cream!😋🔥🔥🔥
