The Saddest Thanksgiving Yet

25 Nov

Hi guys!

Sorry, it’s been almost 10 days and no post, I am horrible! :0

I have been working a ton and even had to work Thanksgiving as usual. This made for a very boring Thanksgiving with no vegan food to share with you! One year I just want to stay home all day and cook a vegan feast for everyone, yum! Being hungry on Thanksgiving or not, I will always think of how proud I am of myself from restraining from the massive amounts of food and sticking to a vegan diet. Even if you were partaking in the Thanksgiving corpse muchin’, I’m sure most healthy living bloggers/ food blogger (or whatever you call yourself) enjoyed yourself and were proud of the choices in food on Thanksgiving day. It’s okay to indulge a bit but I hopefully we will all get back on track after this weekend! 😉

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving & Black Friday!

US friends: What did you eat on Thanksgiving?

The Best Year

4 Jan

Happy Veganniversary to ME.

One year ago today, I made the best  decision in my life.

 I changed my health.

I changed my outlook on life.

& I changed my attitude.

I learned so much about food, diets, health, animals, and the environment.

I love my vegan life and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

There are a lot of reason why people follow a vegan diet.

In fact, I haven’t found a reason why anybody shouldn’t!

W H A T  B E I N G  V E G A N  M E A N S  T O  M E :

Vegan means trying new food

Because life is too short to eat the same things everyday.

 

Vegan means standing up for what you believe in

Because if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.

 

Vegan means following your conscience

Because everyone knows that eating your friends is wrong.

 

Vegan means putting what’s most important first

Because if we were all selfish, together we wouldn’t accomplish anything.

 

Vegan means being compassionate

Because God put all of us on the planet so we could share.

Stay cool, stay vegan! 

🙂 Have a wonderful day! 🙂

Lady Gaga vs. PETA

15 Sep

Is somebody just know figuring out Lady Gaga is a freak?

Although I did not care to watch the VMAs, I still heard about Lady Gaga’s meat outfit. But what do you expect, she’s a freak. Whether or not you were offended by Lady Gaga’s meat entire at the VMAs you gotta admit, it did bring up a lot of meat talk which I do enjoy. I was surprised at how many meat-eaters thought this was so gross and unacceptable! Eating meat or wearing meat, either way; animals died. I’m really glad this got a lot of attention. I know it offend PETA and Ingrid even personally wrote Gaga a letter about this issue. Why doesn’t PETA write letters to all the celebrities who wear fur? I think they should start, I’ll join in too.  Look, even Ellen took action and made Lady Gaga a new veggie outfit:

I am not a Lady Gaga fan, but I honesty think she meant no harm. She just really likes needs attention and knows how to get it.

In other news, my gym no longer offers my power yoga class I’ve grown to love. What will I do!? My Rodney Yee tape? Doubt it, that shit made me want to fall asleep. I could not keep up with the tape so I just watched it instead which made me very sleeepy and relaxed. At least now I know that if there is ever a night I cannot sleep, this will do the trick. No offence Rodney, I just can’t keep up with you!

Also, I did not have to present my speech today, score!

So what have I been eating…

lots of these:

pancakes with blueberries!

Some of this:

homemade lentil soup!

Some of this,

puppy chow pretzel style!

And some potato eggplant curry which I do not have a picture of.

I have also been loving my new Corny Chick Salad,

You should really try it!

I’m giving a lot of thought toward another fitness related challenge. Nothing too extreme, just something to keep me motivated. Perhaps something to do with building muscle??? Maybe so.

 Sorry if I always seem like I’m in a hurry these days but I must rest up now for my 12-hour work day tomorrow! It’s gunna be a long one!

PS: Aww it’s Maggie playin’ outside!
