🌱 This week was my 2 Year Veggie-versary & I'm happy to announce I still haven't died from protein deficiency 💪🏽🤣(actually called Kwashiorkor- you've never heard of it because it's mostly prevalent in starving 3rd world countries). 🐮 Grateful to have learned the truth about the animal abuse I was brainwashed into paying others to do, 3x a day- 365 days a year, the garbage & diseases I was putting into my body, & the harm I was causing to Mother Earth with every meal. 🌎 I used to avoid talking about living vegan because I wanted to respect others personal decisions, then I realized it's no longer a 'personal' decision when other beings have to die & live in torment everyday. 🥑 It's the hardest & best thing I've ever done, but I finally feel like I'm living in alignment with my morals & I'm a voice for the voiceless.🐥 My only regret is that I hadn't know the truth sooner...
Did you know that you are an offspring of this beautiful earth 🌏 full of thriving plants? We are completely nourished and totally completed by the land and sea. We do not need a pill, a shake, or any other fake food. Don't listen to the supplement pushers! They will tell you that you need a magic bullet to be energetic, lose weight, etc. NOT TRUE. Eat the plants 🌱 ::::: This meal is a spaghetti squash with a delicious marinara and nutritional yeast.
Potato torta👻basically just baked potatoes stuffed with mushrooms, green peppers, onions, and carrots. I seasoned my veggies with tamari sauce, black pepper, cayenne pepper, lime juice and garlic. Put them in the oven at 450F for about an hour.

There are two different types of fat:
The fat that is just below the skin is called cutaneous fat, but the really worrisome fat is visceral fat. This is the fat that is found in the [abdomen] and surrounding vital organs.
Visceral fat is the type of fat that is metabolized by the liver, which turns it into cholesterol that circulates in the blood. "Bad" cholesterol, called low-density lipoproteins or LDL, collects in the arteries where it forms plaque, a waxy substance that narrows the arteries.
If you have a protruding belly and large waist, that’s a clear sign you’re storing dangerous visceral fat. While it’s most noticeable and pronounced in obese individuals, anyone can have visceral fit, many without even knowing it.
Being overweight increases the risk for accumulation of visceral fat, but it is not only what you weigh but what you eat that contributes to visceral fat.
Carrying around excess visceral fat is linked with an increased risk for: •Coronary heart disease
Poor diet and lack of exercise can lead to weight gain in the form of visceral fat. Eating a lot of high-fat, high-calorie foods can lead to weight gain and increased visceral fat, especially if you tend to gain weight in your stomach. The types of fat you eat is important as well as the amount. Strictly limit or eliminate processed foods, store-bought baked goods and fried foods to avoid trans fats. Try replacing foods containing saturated and trans fats with those containing polyunsaturated fats, the type in vegetable oils. Eliminate high-fructose corn syrup. A plant-based and nutrient rich diet actually reduces visceral fat as it supports a healthy metabolism that keeps the organs clean and metabolising fats accordingly. Exercise is also key in helping you eliminate visceral fat. #Consciousvibrancy

What do I think you should make for Sunday dinner? Gnocchi with vegan sausage, white beans & spinach! Using my favorite tomato sauce by @jargoods. The vegan sausage is by @Fieldroast It’s so delicious and on the blog! Just search “gnocchi.” Feeling highly unproductive today but that’s what Sundays are for and I’m allllll about it! Also it’s like 90 degrees outside in September 24th and that should just be against the law imo.

To get over the past,
you first have to accept
that the past is over.
No matter how many times
you revisit it, analyze it,
regret it, or sweat it, its over.
It can't hurt you anymore.
