This chic’n marinara was a big favorite of mine looong before I became vegan.
Now that I’m vegan, I just love it that much more!
25 grams of healthy veggie protein, a whole host of nutrition, and a ton of flavor, ALL for less than 400 calories!
A lot of fitness instagram accounts piss me off, one in particular that I shan’t mention, because they preach that all calories are equal. That just isn’t true. Just because someone has a lot of followers, doesn’t mean they’re right. Do your own research. Question what people say. Yes even me: I’m not all-knowing! (Although I do think I know a fair bit 😅) basically guys if someone is giving advice that doesn’t sit quite right with you- question it! Don’t follow blindly, EVER!! Today I saw a post that said “skip breakfast and lose weight because you’ll be consuming less calories overall!” I have never in my life heard worse advice. First of all breakfast is the most important meal of the day for me, it fuels EVERYTHING I do. Secondly, advising people to skip meals to lose weight is basically giving them eating disorder advice. As someone who nearly died from an eating disorder, it’s really inappropriate. Move your body and eat nutritious plant food when you are hungry. Everything else will fall into place.
Just a little transformation picture.
160 lbs on the left ⏪ Fueled by weight gainer, 1 cycle of a testosterone booster, and all da meats. I felt sluggish, groggy, ungrounded and constantly feeling imbalanced...all for the physical gains.
140 lbs on the right ⏩ Plant powered 🥦, balancing weight lifting with yoga(not as much as I should) and daily meditation 🧘♂️
I know the saying “You got to find what works best for you” gets thrown around a lot but it’s true.
At this point in life I realized I want a overall balance of mental,emotional, spiritual, and physical health.
In regards to health & fitness, learn to trust your intuition to guide you to what will be best for you🙏🏼
Playing a bit of catchup posting Day 1 of #yogisliketofly with a terrifying #elephantpose 🐘 i figured, if this challenge is about flying, I might as well catch some air while up in the air. 🤷♀️ P.S. I wouldn’t recommend this if you’re afraid of heights 😅
Day one: elephant pose 🧘♀️
Day two: pincha
Day three: eight angle
Day four: EPK 2
Day five: crow
Day six: handstand
Day seven: fallen angel
Day eight: flying lizard
Day nine: shoulder press
Day ten: free choice
Today I took a bus from Baltimore to New York, a shuttle to New Jersey, and now I’m about to hop on a plane to Iceland and then connect over to Berlin.
Why? Well to start the 4-mont European Filming tour of course! First stop: Berlin, Germany for the world’s first 24-hour Cube of Truth by @anonymousforthevoiceless
Other big news: remember that poem I recorded a few months ago called “What if I Told You?”? Well I’ll be performing that and a few others during the cube in front of more than a thousand people. I’m not nervous you’re nervous 😬😬😬 #vegan#travel#veganroundtheworld

Hey lovely friends!
Since I haven’t properly introduced myself on here, I thought it would be cool to share #fivefacts about me (s/o to @kissenundkarma for the idea)! I’d love to know more about you all as well and encourage you to share some facts about yourself!
1. Since people always try to guess ethnicity (usually incorrectly hah) I’ll just tell you. I’m Mexican/Japanese/Irish! I embrace being multi-ethnic, and enjoy learning about my family history.
2. I was a Polynesian dancer for over a decade and absolutely loved it! I performed at luaus, birthdays, corporate events, as well as competitions.
3. I studied abroad in the Netherlands in college, and fell in love with the country (would love to move there). I’ve been back three times since!
4. I was in sales for 5 years and a brief stint in marketing at a technology company.
5. I’m obsessed with traveling and the chaos, excitement, and sense of adventure it brings!
🎈Oreo and Chocolate Pizza ‘Cake’😻 Just checking in to say I’m still here🙋🏼♀️ I’ve been away enjoying this special week in London without any distractions⭐️
I’ve had the most amazing Birthday and the best week so far🌻
Just like that it’s June 19th again!
Woke up in the middle of nowhere in The New Forest🌳 A magical place full of nature, wild animals and such beautiful scenery. Finished off back in London with a takeaway from @purezzauk all planned by my special person. I feel so lucky, proud and full of love.
Thank you all so much for todays wishes❤️
@asos turned it out with these shorts 🙏🏻 my body needs a little bit of a time out at the moment, i've been so stressed and just generally v frazzled so I'm gonna take it easy with some light workouts for the next week before I start a proper training regime again ✨🌈
