Three Steps to Going Vegan -NO EXCUSES

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”

I always put a crap ton of raw oats on my smoothie bowls….because for some reason it always gives the perfect texture. Today I actually processed a bowl full of some oats in my food processor just so I could top it on my smoothie bowl. Its ridiculous how much I put on LOL.
