Would you love to go vegan but... love desserts too much? that's ok! We got you on cakes, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, creme brulee, ice cream, cinnamon rolls, pies, frozen yogurt, pastries, and whatever else your beautiful little heart desires! And without hurting other lil beings! it might have been really hard for me to be vegan if vegan chocolate covered strawberries didn't exist but alas, I am here and these are vegan😬😬😬 and so can you! Check out my YouTube channel for info/inspo ❤️ #chocolatecoveredstrawberries #vegan #bestofvegan #vegandessert

GOALS
I hear girls and guys talk about other people, + hear that word thrown around all the time. "I want her ______" "how do I do _______ like him/her?" But what do I have that you don't? What does z person do well that you can't? Before you answer that, what does it matter? Why is it so important for us to have x quality and y trait of someone else? We are all so different and beautifully unique. The industry has been trying to make individuality seem like a limit to our potential, but I'll let you in on a secret: you are the only you on this earth and thats your power. #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #elephantpants #iloveyoga

TRIBE

Your vibe attracts your tribe❤️ Since really understanding and feeling my own vibe, wonderful people have been appearing on my path. It was so nice to have spent the week with such kind, compassionate, fun souls. Not everyone on social media is genuine in real life, so knowing that these girls also work with a brand I love is so refreshing. To you reading this, thank YOU for being alive, for joining me on this life experience. #blessedretreat #blessedbaes #vegansofig

How to spot a vegan 101: look for the avocado on multigrain toast with mango chutney, topped with hemp seeds served with a green beverage with some kind of chlorella or spirulina or other "super food" in it

You guys know how much I value greens but remember that you don't need super this and super that to have health in your life. Just eat plants🌱 #veganfood #losangeles #avocadotoast #eatplants #bestofvegan

Oh hello... Welcome to my crib

ACAI HEALTH BENEFITS - one of the highest sources of antioxidants
- improves cholesterol levels by lowering total and LDL (the bad) cholesterol
- the high amount of antioxidants can counteract the damaging effects of inflammation and oxidation in brain cells, improving memory and learning
- nutrient dense, containing chromium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus with only 70 calories per 100g

ACAI DRAWBACKS - theyre not the only source of antioxidants
- can make a dent in your wallet
- may be made with sneaky added sugars

TLDR- MY OPINION

Acai smoothies or bowls are a great way to cool down on a hot day and add in extra antioxidants that can improve so many functions (immunity, skin, digestion, memory/learning) but arent necessary to love a healthy lifestyle. I personally like to get acai bowls when I'm out as a treat (shoutout to @cafegratitude for this Vibrant bowl) and when I'm home I stick to the basic bananas and berries for my smoothie bowls. Plus there's something magical about the experience of getting an acai bowl ❤️ admittedly they are cheaper if you make em at home but I like the whole shebang. do you make your own acai bowls at home? #amandasacaiadventures #acaibowl #cafegratitude #blessedretreat #MyBlessingLA #vegan #acai #acainutrition

// FEEL // Whatever emotions you're feeling today, maybe there's an emotion that you are trying to avoid so you opened up Instagram, stop for a second right now and feel them. Let them make their way through your body so you can go on with your day. Recognize them, let them know that their existence is valid, but they also have no place in controlling your actions

Breathe in: love, strength, courage, light

Breathe out: fear, loneliness, unworthiness, sadness, discouragement

And maybe let a little yoga flow through you at the same time😉 #yoga #flow #yogaeverydamnday #vegan #blessedretreat #feelblessed #MyBlessingsLA

Closing my eyes because I'm too excited to spend a few days with the @blessedprotein girls in LA 🙏🏻🍫 if you're around LA, Check out my story to see how you can hangout with us too! Brunching, bike riding, it's gonna be a fun time ❤️

just a friendly reminder that what other people do is part of THEIR story, not yours. you are the author of your great novel. we’re all just characters in this chapter.
happy Sunday friends! it’s the beginning of a fresh new week, so let’s start it with awareness and patience ❤️

One of my dad's friends texted us both a link to a video from the documentary Food Inc. He said "I know why there are increasingly more vegans. I wish I can be too. Just watched Food Inc. I had an idea but it's worse than what I imagined." The world is waking up but have no idea where to start. We are lucky here in this little bubble of vegan this and vegan that and everything can be made vegan but for most of the population, vegan STILL seems like it means only eating veggies because they aren't aware of how accessible plant based options are getting! I think what will move this movement forward are the dollars and peaking interest in non-dairy/non-meat options. The more dollars and awareness we put toward those items, the more we'll see them in stores and online the table. I love how ice cream shops usually always have flavors that don't have dairy, like this mexican chocolate flavor i got from @littlemanicecream ❤️ one day we will see just as many fully plant based ice cream shops as regular... Slowly but surely... #vegan #denvervegan #bestofvegan #icecream #applesandamandas
