The best kind of mirror selfie is one where no one is behind you 😁😁 // preworkout by @elevatedfn (15% off completely plant based supplements with "apples15"), workouts by @katiesnow, and shade from all the blinding sun inside the gym from @vegetaryn 😂😂 // I used to think that people with overhead earphones and hats were super extra and obnoxious but now I know it's basically perfect repellent from people who can get in the way from me getting in + getting out of the gym. I try to keep my workouts at around an hour because i gotta eat and study, ain't nobody got time to chat all the time 😅 #dontbeeyecandybesoulfood #eatplantsliftheavy #vegan #elevatedfn

My idea of "comfort food." A nutrient dense smoothie bowl with tryptophan-rich sunflower seeds (Sleep and mood regulator)🛌, mulberries boasting with skin and immune vitamin C🍊🍋, fiber rich whole grain granola, and antioxidant rich berries🍓. It's funny how I consider this comfort food when a couple years ago, it used to be a bowl of top ramen with eggs and Vienna sausages
We are ever changing as we grow and evolve and learn and experience new things. We get new favorite foods, good aversions, favorite songs and colors and habits and interests. It's human. its a beautiful thing to be able to do whatever we choose, love whoever we want, and be who we want to be. Embrace it. Ride it. And don't forget to Love every version of yourself through every change.

The daily drill: chocolate🍫 berry smoothie bowl with lots and lots of toppings, using @elevatedfn chocolate protein. Get 15% off with the code "apples15" ☺️

My go-to dinners lately: huuuge bowls of rice, steamed veggies, and vegan meatballs. most of these (minus the steamed veggies and greens) items actually came from a @califuze meal prep box but I'm just a lil extra and can't eat unless my food is in a ginormous wooden bowl. These meatballs. I'm obsessed. They're so good, oil-free and are made of whole food ingredients 😍 check out @califuze if you live in the SoCal area! It's been a life saver for me for my busy days. After eating this I normally move onto a granola banana cereal type thing and then an apple or more fruit or chocolate. Yes I eat a lot. No I don't care. & Yes, I'm the type of person who starts and ends her day with sweets. Anyone else with me!?🙋🏻🙋🏻

Apparently vegans only eat hummus, carrots, and the occasional wheatgrass shot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ they're really missing out on amazing food like fully loaded nachos and potato wedges with aioli dipping sauce.... Or are they 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 lol, new vlog up on my channel!! Tbh I've been thinking about other videos to make but I always stick to the vlogs and what I eat in a days since you guys never get tired of them ~i hope~ but do you have any video suggestions!? Let me know in the comments 😌😌

In case you've wondered where I've been, I've been mostly in class, smoothie bowl in hand since actually sitting down and eating lunch outside of hasn't been a thing lately. Probably due to my horrible time management during my lunch hour or the fact that I've come to kind of sadly enjoy eating in class, but yeah this is me on a normal school day except what's going on with the weather?? It's May and I'm wearing my #IfLookCouldKale sweater which I'm not mad about but like where the sun at 🌞🌞

In one of my classes, we make large quantities of food to serve to students and staff at my school in order to practice food service to large quantities of people. Our kitchen manager today chose to use @sweetsimplevegan's recipe for her soba noodle salad with peanut sauce and it turned out soooo good!! I just love seeing people enjoy healthy vegan recipes 😌😌

My favorite meal is one composed of the basics: brown rice, beans, greens, veggies, and tofu 😍😍 I don't know what it is but ever since I've started going to the gym more to lift weights rather than hit the cardio machines, my cravings for things like beans and tofu and fats have gone up like crazy! It's amazing how the body will crave what it needs depending on the activities it gets into. Our bodies are amazing and this is only one of the many reasons that I am so pumped about health and medicine💪🏼🏥👩🏻‍⚕️

#happymothersday to all the mothers who give selflessly to their children. To the mothers of all shapes, sizes, colors, races, and species. To mothers who love unconditionally and with no limitations. Today and everyday💐💞

These “Not-Chos” from @realfooddaily are MUST HAVE (just like all their food!) 😍❤️A bed of gluten free corn tortilla chips with melted cashew cheese, black beans, pico de gallo, cashew sour cream, and guacamole. If no one told me, I don't think I could guess it's vegan. It’s kind of insane how easily cashews can be transformed into nacho cheese, alfredo sauce, milk, sour cream, cheesecake fillings, nut butters, yogurts, ice cream, etc. One of the challenges that people might face going vegan is how to replace full fat dairy in recipes but cashews got ya covered! What’s your favorite way to use cashews in recipes?
