It's Belgian National Day πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺ, so @the_lazy_frenchie and I made a Belgian flag out of vegan food to celebrate our home country ❀️ #fetenationale #nationalefeestdag #πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺ

"It's mostly about the people you surround yourself with. More so than food, exercise, money, it's about the company you keep. Don't feel good around someone? They need to leave. Move on. Instead, spend time with the people who make you laugh, who make you feel glad you're alive." - my mother ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ Pic: sneak peak of a new recipe coming to the blog very soon (hint: there'll be coffee, cake, cream & berries;))

Recently, I've been working on pushing myself to do things that make me feel uncomfortable or that I don't feel ready for and stepping in front of the camera is one thing I've been *comfortably* avoiding for a long time. It's also been a while since I've shared anything personal on here, so I thought I'd share 5 quick facts about me: 1. I started this account four years ago while living in Brussels (hence the name, but I also love Brussels sprouts;)). 2. I can't whistle. 3. I need to be surrounded by music constantly and can't focus if I'm not. 4. Running @bestofvegan, @veganreset, @veganchallenge & @brusselsvegan is my full time job and I love it. 5. I love socially awkward people and I used to be very shy and socially awkward myself (I still am sometimes, but I've learned to embrace it;)). πŸ’— If there's anything else you'd like to know, feel free to ask me in the comments below and I'll respond;) or if you'd like to introduce yourself or share anything, please do, I love finding out more about you. πŸ’• #whatveganslooklike

Throwback to @suninbloom pancakes & macro salad πŸ’— By far one of my favorite places in the city. If you ever go, be sure to order chef Aimee's macro salad. Thank me later 😜

Tried the #impossibleburger for the first time today. Verdict: REALLY good. Definitely a fan. I went with two non vegans, their verdicts: non vegan 1, Christine: "You don't have to be a vegan to become obsessed with this burger. If I never had another (meat) burger in my life, it would be ok as long as I could have this." Non vegan 2, Jason: "Burgers are my favorite food and I would totally be OK with replacing meat burgers with this." // We had this at Bare Burger on LaGuardia place in NYC. Be sure to ask for a fully vegan version of the burger if you go.
