A concept: Joyful living

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.

It all started for me during lent in 2013 & I didn’t fully commit to being vegan until May 2017. Adding healthier options to your life one day at a time will completely change the narrative a year from now.

My favorite juice to start my day with includes 4 celery stalks, 1 green apple & 1 tbs Spirulina.. makes about 14 oz.

To name a few benefits: Celery helps lower high cholesterol, inflammation, & high blood pressure. Apples help remove toxins in the body, boost immune system, helps hair growth, & hydrated skin. Spirulina helps boost energy, detoxes heavy metals, & is a complete source of protein. 

Health is wealth & I'm striving to be rich in more ways than one.


 
Ellen gave "Girls Trip" star Tiffany Haddish the surprise of her life when she introduced her to her idol, Oprah Winfrey.

Tiffany Haddish shared similar thoughts of starting her garden with The Queen, Oprah. TIffany shared her vegan Joyful Greens recipe with us- the secret is to smile when you pick, cook, and eat the greens.

Oprah talks about her garden in Maui, and her roots in Mississippi. Growing up on a farm impacted her life in a great way, she's able to designate 16 acres of her property to farming 100 different fruits, vegetables, and herbs- AND give back to he community. They produce 145 lbs of food each week due to the rich soil. 

I’ve come to see the process of growing things as a metaphor for living. In life, as on a farm or in a garden, we get out of it what we put into it. Whatever our dreams, ideas, or projects, we plant a seed, nurture it—and then reap the fruits of our labors. That lesson was there for the taking way back in Mississippi. But I needed 50 years, thousands of miles, Bob’s great example, and a whole lot of big, beautiful tomatoes to really learn it for myself.

I believe we can bring our communities together to live happier, healthier lives- one recipe at a time. How can you add more fruits and vegetables into your diet?
