My Brief Vegan Background
More plant-based meals are what my body has been asking for lately. I go through phases with food but when my body wants more veggies I give it more! I have come along way in the whole ‘balanced’ eating regimen. The idea of listening to my body has been a journey.
Did you know I was a vegan for 4 years, and a raw vegan for 1 of those years!? That’s right no meat, dairy or animal products for 4 years! The vegan diet is a wonderful one however for me it wasn’t sustainable. It all ties back to listening to my body. It came to a point where I had to question why am I vegan, was it for the Instagram family and community I rapidly built?
Long story short, yes, I was living for this community I had built this success and approval. I had ignored all signs but I am so glad I am here today practicing balance in all aspects of my life. Leaving the community was hard, got a lot of hate messages, threats and some friends I thought were friends left. It got to me and shut down my social media for a year. But, this was the best thing I really grew and worked hard on myself.
I love that I am finally comfortable to be here on this huge cyberspace again. Sharing all the recipes with you is what I LOVE about my job. This place of balance and self-acceptance I have found is beautiful and I hope you find yours too! Whatever it looks like for you I am always here as support! It is so silly to judge others based on the decisions they make to live a better and happier life! Cheers to you and all your doing to live out your very best life!!
Instant Pot Bean Potato & Kale Vegan Soup
What I love about this soup is the heartiness of it! Instant Pot Bean Potato & Kale Vegan Soup is healthier comfort food you can feel good about eating. I love it on cold nights with some warm sourdough bread, it’s an amazing combo. The addition of parmesan and fresh basil on top is another great way to enjoy this soup, to keep it vegan get some vegan parmesan at Whole Foods. I highly recommend Violife, I’m not sponsored just really like their vegan cheeses!
