I know what it feels like to wonder why people go vegan or ask myself how is it possible?! I was at a time in my life where I told myself I could never go vegan. There’s always those common excuses people make to not go vegan: “I love meat too much,” “I won’t get enough nutrients,” “I love cheese or dairy too much.” Trust me I was there. I felt like I could never go vegan, because I would be deprived of all of the delicious foods.
Veganism is a long process and some people really struggle with it in the first couple months. It may seem hard at first, but I do have a couple tips to help people out that are interested in going vegan. Continue reading “Three Steps to Going Vegan -NO EXCUSES”
Health….its one of the, if not most important, component in your life. You would not believe how adapting a healthy diet/lifestyle will change you for the better. It’s more then just a new years resolution or something to write on your bucket list. Living a healthy lifestyle is a longer process then you think, it can’t just happen overnight…as much as I would love it too.

When I first went vegan, a little over a year ago, I would always ask myself, how the heck am I going to bake?! What about the eggs, the milk, or butter….I knew this was possible, but was it really going to taste that good? So, whenever someone mentions they could never go vegan, because they wouldn’t be able to eat cookies, cakes, or brownies I don’t give them a hard time. I was once there.

As a vegan I’m constantly being asked where I get my protein from. It’s definitely one of the most dreaded questions in the vegan community. I don’t ever know how to answer, because whatever I say I am either corrected or there is too much information to answer that one question. Short and simple? I get enough protein. Unfortunately, that response doesn’t cut it anymore, I need facts! Continue reading “Do Vegans Get Enough Protein?!”
Grocery shopping is by far one of my favorite parts of the week, not gonna lie. Coming back home, unloading the groceries, and filling your cupboards and fridge with an abundance of yummy food just satisfies my afternoon.
Not everything about grocery shopping is all good and dandy. Sometimes its stressful, whether you have a budget or you’re trying to eat healthy. For me, I struggle with buying too expensive of groceries and I have found a way that helps me with buying cheap items, but still making it relatively organic and of course…VEGAN!

HOW TO HAVE A BETTER WEEK TIP #1: If your having a bad week and everything seems to be going wrong, its best if you constantly have a positive mindset and know that things are going to better. From experience, I know that negative things in my life won’t last forever. This moment, this week, in your life is seriously a teeny-tiny fraction of your lifetime. Bad things won’t last if you don’t let them last. THINK POSITIVE! Know that you are better than this. Continue reading “Friday Night Sushi Sesh!!”

My name is Taavi and I live in Seattle, WA…the rainy city I guess you could say 😉 I have a LOVE for food and trying new things. My passion is to create new and unique foods that are inspired by other wonderful bloggers/cooks! Continue reading “More About Me!”
I have never actually thought about starting a blog until yesterday. My mom suggested I start one because I always loved sharing my vegan creations with people around me and I absolutely loved trying out other peoples recipes! A blog to me always seemed like SO MUCH WORK. Having to constantly update people about my life and what new recipes I have to share, but now I love it! I may do it too much….lol. Sharing people about the benefits of being on a healthy and happy lifestyle always interested me and I can’t imagine my life without these wonderful foods that surround me! I don’t want to make this blog ALL about recipes that I have tried or created but I want to tell everybody about how incredible it is to fill your body and mind with healthy and positive thoughts and FOOD (DUHH)! My goal is to spread the message of what its like to be healthy and happy, what does it do to your body and how can I achieve that positive mindset from changing my lifestyle for the better? I want people to know what it feels like to be alive, alive from food and positive, healthy thoughts! We as people shouldn’t always have to think about the bad affects food has on us. We shouldn’t have to constantly pay attention to calories or how many carbs there are in this piece of bread! What we put into our body should always cause us to think positive and we should never have to question the affects of eating this food! We should rejoice in the fact that we are providing our boys with an abundance of nutrients….and who would not want to live longer?!
