Y'all, look at my best friend/coworker at @afrovegansociety go!! She made the chili and taco "meat" for our fabulous event last night and this bih got skills! Come through to our next meetup to experience some real good food and fun🌮🌮🌮
What I ate last night: veggie burger from R. Thomas. I get it, it doesn't look super visually appealing, but it tasted amazing. I came w a non-vegan friend and he loved it (until he found out it was soy-based lol).
Happy Saturday! On the way "up the road" and didn't have time to make juices for today so I picked up some juices, kale chips, fruits for the journey. There are many more options then it was before, so there's no more excuses to create a healthier life. 🥑🍍🍇🍉🍓🍊🌱
✨I'm down 17 pounds using a combination of #ItWorksGreens , #ItWorksWraps , Using @jasonvale's #28dayJuiceFast (for 14 days 😩😩😩) & now moving on to #Veganism for lifelong health & wellness. I've increased my workouts to app. 3 cardio sessions per week + walks with our daughter every other day or so. Not to mention just chasing after our all our kiddos every day! Im feeling completely AMAZEBALLS. 😂 #WellnessWithTheWards 💚
today's video/post: 5 tips on transitioning to a vegan lifestyle #linkinbio
look, i won't sit up here and tell you eliminating meat, diary, and eggs from your diet is an easy task; especially if you've grown up eating these items daily. but, as with any transitional period, it gets easier as your body adjusts to the lifestyle.
in this video, i give 5 tips any new or curious vegan-to-be needs in order to make this transition as smooth as possible. •••
here's a hint: don't shop at Whole Foods 😂😂😂
🌱 Spicy Fried Avocado Nugget
I N G R E D I E N T S 🌱
3 avocados cut into chunks
1 cup almond milk
1 cup bread crumbs (vegan approved)
3 "eggs" - Vegan egg replacer
2 tablespoons soy free butter (earth balance)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder (I suggest using 1 teaspoon)
1 3/4 teaspoons pink himalayan salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 cup all purpose flour
avocado oil for frying
1. Into a large bowl, stir together almond milk, butter , "egg" replacer, cayenne pepper powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons pink salt, garlic powder, paprika, turmeric powder and onion powder, until combined. Add avocado chunks, stir well to coat thoroughly (let every chunk get coated) set aside for 10 mins
2. Into a large saucepan, pour avocado oil until about 1-inch height
3. While the oil is heating, place all purpose flour in a bowl, add remaining 1/4 teaspoon pink himalayan salt and 3 tablespoons of almond milk marinade (try to scoop from the bottom of the bowl). Mix with your fingertips, until thoroughly combined (this creates texture in the flour and guaranteed crispiness). 4. Working with one avocado at a time – coat with flour (pressing on all sides for badder to adhere well) and place on a plate in a single layer.
5. Deep fry in three batches, until deep golden on all sides ( about 6 minutes per batch). Drain on a paper towel lined platter.
6. Serve hot for appetizer / dinner / snack / side dish with ketchup / ranch / barque sauce. •

I know I haven't been up here in a while. I've been busy spending time with my family in NC. Yesterday, I tried the @fieldroast Creamy Original Chao Cheese for the first time. I've tried the Tomato Cayenne Flavor a while ago one and it was really good. The Creamy Original is pretty good but it has a weird aftertaste. I also tried the @followyourheart block "Cheddar Cheese" and I did not like it. I heard their cheese slices and other products were good. I'm going to try them soon. I also tried @miyokos_kitchen Double Cream Chive and Fresh VeganMozz cheeses. They were delicious! I'm one of the few people that really like @daiya_foods products. It's soy-free and love how it melts and stretches. Have any of you found a vegan cheeses you really like? Please post below and "talk amongst yourselves". 😊
We are a little less than 3 weeks #Vegan & we LOVE it! There's just so many delicious & healthy options. Today's good choice for me (Grace) while out with the kiddos at a festival/parade. I saw a sign for "Vegan Delight" & hopped on it! 😋😋😋 The veggies were all pickled & locally sourced. The whole wheat toasted pita w/ hummus was BOMB. 💣 #vegansofinstagram#blackvegans#blackvegansofig
Lunch time!! I don't really stick to a certain diet, or count calories etc... partly due to the fact that with a vegan lifestyle my meals are pretty clean in general. Funny enough I probably have a salad maybe once or twice a week, not everyday as most people think about vegans. And when I do Salad I go big! Here mine is packed with proteins from quinoa, peanuts, ancient grains and broccoli etc... I don't force my lifestyle on anyone but try having a clean / raw / vegan meal once a week, maybe even once a day. You'll feel the difference.
Leg day has grown to being one of my favorite days. Don't get me wrong, it's hard pushing through the workout. But seeing the results after being consistent is what I like! I had to learn to embrace my "big " (muscular) legs.
So yeah this song goes well with the workout 😎

Day 23: I have exactly 7 more days to go on this #rawvegan challenge. Still experiencing the increase in energy and I've been breezing thru my workouts. I'm no longer experiencing any bloating and my waist looks extra snatched!!! This week has been all about trying out new recipes but keeping things super simple. Today's breakfast was a simple green salad from @panerabread with added cilantro, avocado, and olives. Yes...I eat salads for breakfast and I was too lazy to make breakfast at home.
So what the hell are garlic scapes? Garlic scapes are the green parts that grow while the garlic is growing. They honestly taste like onion and garlic already cooked together! #superyummy#blackvegansofig#themoreuknow
