Breakfast this morning. After last night, I decided to split the avo toast with Dave and get a juice 😅 This one is just beets, ginger, lemon, and apples... feeling good 💃

When you're filled to the brim with 'barbecue' and fried chik'n (@thefictionkitchen) so you get dessert to go. Cheesecake and tres leches, all vegan. It's basically magic 💕 it's been a good week of healthy eats (including today, as this was yesterday!) and workouts, but sometimes you need to treat yourself 💁, especially when trying out a new spot!

It’s the one day during the week that I get the most done. It’s never fun to not be able to go home, but you must always make the BEST out of any 💩 situation.
Change your mindset & that’ll change the game.
Easy protein oatmeal with old fashioned oats, a scoop of vanilla Orgain, some chia seeds, blueberries, and cinnamon to start the week 💃
Remember those funfetti chex bars from last night? We took out a couple of rows for ourselves this morning, then I sent Dave off to work with the rest of them.. because you *know* I would eat them all 🙊 it's all about balance-- something I'm finally learning how to do.

I know what you’re thinking ‘it’s monday’. Put a smile 😺 on that face and be thankful 🙌🏽 for another day. Get your 🍑 up and slay bitch slay. Every day that we wake up is another day closer to accomplishing our dreams ☁️ ☁️

Pesto avocado toast, kale salad, & Southwest quesadilla with cashew 'sour cream' FTW 😍 Some weekends, you just have to exist; this weekend, we're getting it done 🙌 with a productive Costco trip, stocking up on a few things for the next couple of weeks 🛒 I have a couple of recipes I'm looking to try out this week/weekend, so I'll make sure to post them if they pan out 😉
Chef Vickie does it again. 🙌🏼 We will be moving after Christmas, so we had to snag in one last visit at our favorite place and went for Afternoon Tea for my birthday. She and her team spoiled us with three wonderful courses and lots of love. I am so grateful for our time in VA and that we were able to meet these beautiful people. #vegan#afternoontea#vegansofhamptonroads#hurrication
We had the pleasure of attending brunch with Santa this morning at @kahiauvegancafe. This was hands down the best event I have ever been to, from the food to the service and general atmosphere. If you are in the Virginia Beach area next Christmas, snag a reservation. There was an amazing pastry buffet, cookie decorating, and a selection of savory dishes. We had the biscuits and gravy, waffles, and check out that Spinach Mushroom Omelet. Chef Vickie makes her own vegan egg. It was so amazing. #vegan#brunch#vegansofhamptonroads#anythingyoucaneaticaneatvegan#hurrication
I’m FIVE.SEVEN and went from a size 18 in August 2015 to a size 8 as of TUH-DAY! 🙌🏾🌱
Lady in Old Navy: "Wow! You've lost a lot of weight! How'd you do it? Anddonttellmeyouworkoutbecauseimnotdoingallthat..."
Me: "Well, I do summa that too but..." *explains it's all due to my vegan life*
Her: "Ooh. Oh. I can't do that either..." •••
Well, ma'am... 🤷🏾♀️
We must stop defeating ourselves before we even TRY.
For the record, I get it. I used to SWEAR a plant-based diet was impossible but when it comes to your health, you'd be amazed at the things you'll do that you didn't KNOW you could do. •••
We could all stand to improve our RELATIONSHIP with food. Whether plant-based or otherwise.
