A big part of me growing into the #plantbasedshawty I am today is looking into the benefits of certain food so that I can enjoy it better. Since I know watermelon and celery have 90%+ of water, and some days are harder to get to my water intake goal, I try to add those 2 to my daily juices.Read More
I love that I have more energy, my skin clears up, and I'm eating my favorite fruits. Besides the different flavors I can create with each smoothie, I love the health benefits each fruit includes.Read More
There's one cheat meal I can't live without: mac & cheese! The reason why I love cooking is because you can take any recipe and make it your own. I LOVE MAC & CHEESE...Read More
If you know me, you know I love fruits! Adding fruits to non- dairy yogurt takes my snack to another level.Read More
Everyone is looking for secrets to better health, the secret is the answer is within you. As much as I love my skincare products, the most effective ingredient to my skin clearing up is my diet. Drinking water is the first step- the average human body is made up of 75% of water.Read More
I aspire to build gardens in communities across the world so that we all learn more about the food we’re putting into our bodies. The right food will help you lose weight, increase blood flow, & shine from the inside out. You can think clearer, have more energy, and live happier. These are all things I’ve personally done since eating more fruits & vegetables in my diet.Read More
I prep my juices by putting the fruits in a mason jar, and add the liquids and powders when I'm going to drink it. This morning drink is also my pre workout smoothie: watermelon, strawberries, coconut water, Vega pre-workout energizer, and Maca powder. Strawberries are filled with Vitamin C and is a great antioxidant fruit.
Who else LOVES fruits like I do? When I go food shopping at Wegmans, I look for the kent mangos for my to go mango chunks fruit snack. My go-to fruit salad right now is mango and kiwi.
This week, I made a delicious avocado and mango salad: both cut into chunks, avocado seasoned with lime juice, salt, pepper, garlic, and cayenne pepper. The flavors complemented each other very well, the spice from the avocado was cooled down with the sweet mango- bite, after bite.
Here's a video on how I cut my mango into chunks for each recipe, including freezing for smoothies!
sidenote: I really love what being plant based is doing for my life. I have a lot more energy and drive, my skin has never been this clear regardless of the skin care products I use. I've been wanting to go plant based for a few years and this has been one of the best life decisions I've made to date (of my 22 years).
This plant based recipe will have you questioning why you never made this recipe before!
The frozen banana and almond milk are my ice cream base. I've made this recipe with coconut milk, and added brown sugar/ my PB&J recipe is an all around favorite amongst my peers.
Make sure you freeze your bananas for your ice cream so that the texture will be thicker. (vs. a banana at room temperature- but still a delicious recipe.)
