    Vegan Update

    In Febuary 2013  I decided that I would make a serious lifestyle change and transitioin to a vegan lifestyle. In my last post “Falling off the Wagon,” I wrote about  challenges I expected as a new vegan.  My will power and temptation were definitely tested. During this transition I came across a documentary on Netflix called Vegucated and it changed my whole perspective on Veganism and why I felt it was the right decision for me.  It wasn’t until May 2013 that I officially became a Vegan.  Those three months were filled with more temptations, frustrations and trial and error. It was also an opportunity to figure out what I…

    Green smoothie challenge

    In part of trying to live a healthier diet and living a greener lifestyle, I thought making green smoothies would not only be beneficial, but could really pave the road to achieving this goal. I initially started making green smoothies 2 weeks before the new year, because I knew that this would be my ULTIMATE New Year’s Resolution (Yes, I started early). Like any other nu-be I began with the basics, spinach, banana, apples and celery. I also made my smoothies with Almond Vanilla Milk and coconut water which has made the smoothies really tasty. I surprisingly liked it. The only taste I really could not get use to was…
