Since becoming vegan two years ago, a lot of people ask me what I eat. One thing I hate is when people offer me sides & I like to eat whole meals.
*walks into Summer BBQ* Hey! We have Chicken, Burgers, Rice w Bacon, Hot Dogs.. *looks at me* we have potato salad!
Since eating out with allergies + dietary preferences has it’s difficulties, Simplicity is key for me. The larger the menu, the less options I have at a regular restaurant. I got tired of going out to eat sides with friends, and visited a local vegan burger shop.
*I’ve been to Seed Burger 4 times in one month. That may not seem like a lot but New Brunswick can be a 30 minute drive from where I live, which means it better be worth the drive. Food is AN EXPERIENCE for me. From going to diners with my mom, going to sports bars with my cousins, or eating a table full of vegan options with my sisters- they all hold different memories.
My first visit was with my sis, after I supported my younger sister in NY at her high school graduation dinner. It was Beyond worth it. I had the Beyond Meat Burger, my sis had the Buff Chik Burger and air fried curly fries. My Next visit, I realized they had their own juices, ice cream, and tried their special- Sloppy Meatball Burger & air fried sweet potato fries. I have another sister I love dearly, that also loves food as much as I do (you kind of have to at this point). She enjoyed the Beyond Meat Burger with curly fries while I enjoyed the Sloppy Meatball Burger again. In our latest visit, we both ordered the Beyond Meat Burger, and shared air fried curly fries. We both got a different refreshing drink.
Something that brings me a lot of joy is having someone try vegan food. I don’t need you to love it, I just want you to try it. IF you love it, we’ll have it more often, if not- we can explore other options. Burgers have a special place in my heart and taste buds, I’m grateful to have found a favorite vegan burger spot.
I’d heard of Seedburger from Instagram , and finally decided to try it out of myself.
Have you been to Seed Burger yet? Do you plan on going now?
When I first started my weightless journey, I’d drink about a gallon of water a day- mostly because at that point I only wanted to drink water ( less soda, juice, etc). Drinking regular water can get boring, so here’s 5 alternatives so we can stay hydrated this Summer!
If you know me, you know I love to add Golden Milk to my daily routine. I first tasted Golden Milk at the coffee shop I used to work at. The recipe was a blend of turmeric, ginger, cayenne pepper, cinnamon & black pepper, I’d normally have it with soy milk.
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.
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.
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.
