T O K Y O // @ts_tantan_jp I’ll never forget my first #ramennoodles in Nippon.🍜🇯🇵 I’m ready to go back @anenome_5.🐽🐽🐽.
💭: What are some vacation dishes you’d go back for?!
✖️Yeah, I’m reposting this because IG was a wanker. 😒 Also for those wondering...YES, I’m still in JAPAN!✌🏼✖️
Saturday night produce preservation. We have more food than vegetarians can consume between our CSA and garden, so we're getting creative on ways to use it. 🍅🥕🥒 What's your favorite summer vegetable and way to eat it?
In yesterday's animal vigil with @metromanila.animalsave , I came face to face with a horse who looked at me with accusing eyes. I could feel his pain and anger as he stared at me for a good one minute. He probably thought I was going to hurt him and given how another human was going to slaughter him a few hours later, he wasn't far from the truth. 💔
We call ourselves just, compassionate, and good. We become nurses, doctors, and teachers, hoping our good deeds contribute to a better world. But we let THIS happen to an innocent creature whose only wish was to live.
This has to stop. It's not too late.
It can start with us. You, my friend, can also help put a stop to this when you refuse to eat meat and say no to the commodification of our animal brethren.
🍦 the amount of vegan ice cream available now compared to when i first ditched dairy is INSANE. so many different flavors and options! this one was in sale at my local grocery store & with cashew butter (always) mixed into it 😛😛 it's soo good.

Oh hey there plate of all things summer...Anyone else order salads just for the toppings? The Baby Arugula Salad had organic baby arugula topped with pignoli (pine) nuts, raisins, organic sweet corn, avocado, & tomatoes in a balsamic vinaigrette...🥗🌽🥑#choosetobewell#healthylifestyle#summervibes
Dinner when you're too hot to cook, too tired to go out, and too hungry to wait for delivery. Olive hummus with raw veggies for dipping, peppery corn on the cob, and thinly sliced braised tofu. Not pictured: ice cream for dessert, because of course.
I could NOT manage to eat all of this 😂 The boxed mac i had for lunch + a brand new shiny red huge blender, had me wanting to make @decadent.vegan 's cashew mac and cheese tonight. I added some black truffle almonds to the sauce along with the cashews and it was next level delicious. I've made this recipe a few times but my new blender made this soooo much creamier than before and it is PERFECT. 🌱

I decided over a year ago to go vegan again. I’ve been vegan or vegetarian off and on throughout my life but this time it has stuck. My whole family decided to join me in my decision and I’m so happy and proud that we did.
Although I’m not crazy strict about it, especially with my kids and ice cream 😉, I feel a responsibility to keep it up for them, for me and for our planet.
It started out as something I did for my own health but the more research I do the more I know that this is bigger than me.
Thanks @simonsaysmacy for such a great job on my cutie 🐷!!
This bowl of goodness is hitting the spot after an afternoon of hiking at #forestvillestatepark . This is my first bite of locally grown sweet corn this season ... my husband basically called me a snob for cutting the corn off the cob 😂 #whatever
We also had roasted cauliflower with a homemade curry paste & fried organic potatoes in leftover bacon fat from this morning and fresh herbs (basil, thyme & oregano) from our garden.
I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a summer Saturday 😍
I’m on the hunt for meals I can freeze to help us out the first month after my c-section. I’ve given up on searching Pinterest for vegan ideas because I just cannot find anything I like🤦🏻♀️ SO I’m just searching recipes and writing down meals that I can veganize.
This particular one is called Poor Mans Stew. It turned out SO GOOD!!!
This was so affordable and simple to make! In my crockpot I added 3 cups of water, 1 can of tomato paste, a couple teaspoons of minced garlic, 1 bag of baby carrots that I chopped up, about 1.5 lbs of white potatoes peeled and chopped, a bag of @gardein beefless grounds then onion powder, salt and pepper to taste! That’s it!
This is going to be my go-to Fall & Winter comfort meal🍂
People say they want results but don’t take action to get there. Here’s a little tough love but you’ll never get anywhere in life (not just with your fitness) if you always let your excuses get in the way. “I don’t have time”, “I’m too tired” or “I don’t have enough money” are the worst excuses in the book because I used to use them too... and have reason to. I’m a full time doctoral student, work a part time job, work a practicum rotation, take care of 2 dogs and work this coaching business all while taking care of my health. Am I freaking busy? Abso-fucking-lutely. Some days I’m up at 4:30am to make sure I get my workouts in. Am I tired as all hell? Damn straight! Some days during the semester I feel like I need to tape my eye balls open. Am I poor as shit? You betcha. My bank account has seen the negatives for sure. BUT if I let myself stay stuck in the same cyclic, unhealthy, and self-pitiful mindset I would have never made this amount of progress in my life. Anytime I catch myself making an excuse as to why I can’t achieve whatever I put my damn mind to I head straight the problem-solving seat. So what’s your excuse?
