What a day!! My first @vegfestuk was such a success - I ate sooo much indulgent food (which was ridiculously tasty), but even better was meeting up with amazing friends and making some new ones too 💜 Plus, the BIG highlight was getting to meet the incredibly lovely @msevylynch😍 She is one of my favourite actresses (she was the perfect Luna Lovegood!) and as a massive Harry Potter fan this was such an exciting moment for me. She also is so kind, and really sweetly let me completely fangirl over her and get this photo with her (with the @thezestylime!). I have an epically long story showing my adventures with @thezestylime (the best vegfest buddy a girl could ask for), and it was wonderful to get to see and meet so many other lovely people as well - @veritevegan, @rachelwattts, @theplantbasedman, @natsveganfitness, @vegan.han, @nourishing.amy, @livingaveganlife, and more 🤗 I am going to bed feeling very full and happy this evening 😊 Good night friends!
It’s one of those days when I don’t feel like cooking 🤷🏻♀️ so I grabbed a wrap and an unsweetened lemon @steaz green tea on my way into work today 🍋 I love this flavor, so dang refreshing! Hope you guys are having a great Saturday 💛 #iChooseToBeWell

Dinner today was a spicy stuffed butternut squash😋I halved and roasted a butternut squash that was drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper, and lotsa curry🔥 inside and on top has lentils mixed with olive oil, curry, garlic powder, dried parsley, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted pine nuts💃🏼I swear: squash have to be the most versatile family of veggies ever👅

My kids can put away some hummus....I should enter them in an eating contest 😂 What food do you have trouble keeping in the house because it gets devoured?
(BTW, I have no idea why one is bundled up like it’s winter and the other is dressed like it’s hot out. I would be sweating in one and freezing in the other 😬) #momlife
I love warming up with front or back squat with a 2-3 second pause at the bottom. 🔥 Helps me get a feel of what I need to stretch out before I hit a heavy lift. Squats with a pause at the bottom helps dramatically improve leg strength, postural strength, improve flexibility and comfort in the bottom of the squat. I'm happy I've incorporated these into my routine because I'm becoming a lot stronger and more confident in my heavy squats! 😊
New digs! Already unpacked the car and showered. We are so incredibly blessed by this short term housing. It's an answer to prayer while we look for a new home.
What tips do you guys have for buying a home in a new area?
Rumor was that @dominiqueansel bakery was dishing out stale cronuts but as far as im concerned this one was everything I hoped for! The thing about cronuts, and dont ask my why because idk, but the dough will seize up if left alone for to long which is why there is a distinct disclaimer on the box saying to eat within 6 hours.
I will say however, $7 for a doughnut is fucking ridiculous
This months flavor was filled with a pumpkin puree and cranberry jam topped with white chocolate icing 😍
i really need a nap, do work, but i made some turmeric curry chicken nuggggggets 🤤 #myweakness & this is all the meal prep that is happening this weekend 😅 the recipe is on my blog & is SIMPLE 🤞🏻🔥 you’re gonna love them so get to it 💨💨 🛴 #dreamsdocometrue
Vegan chocolate brownies 🍫
Decided to throw a bunch of random things I had on hand into the food processor, and came up with this insanely gooey and delicious creation. No lie....I’ve already eaten about a 1/3 of the pan 🤤
✖️1 can of white beans .
✖️1/2c of @simplemills #paleo chocolate cake and muffin almond flour mix .
✖️2T of @traderjoes raw creamy almond butter .
✖️1 small (super spotty) banana .
✖️1tsp baking powder and 1/2tsp baking soda .
👉🏻Add everything to a food processor, top with @eatingevolved #vegan chocolate bar with almonds, and bake for 15 minutes at 350. (Let these cool for at least 20-30min or they will be too gooey!) .
I have tried to stop using the sugar free chemical syrups to sweeten my dessert, and go for natural sugar sources instead. I have found that the sugar free sweeteners make me crave even more sugar! 🍭
Just an example of a days food 🙌 ➡ No restrictions, no counting calories or macros just eating food I love to eat and enjoy😉 So often I see the majority of people overthink, complicate and confuse themselves when it comes to food! Unless you are a professional athlete or on prep for a competition, whether it be bodybuilding, powerlifting, triathlon or marathon etc you don't need to stress so much about carb cycling, hitting your macros, cheat meals, refeeds etc etc !! Basically move more, be active and try to eat nutrient dense, whole foods the majority of the time and always leave room for a treat 😉 Eating well balanced meals, as in a lean source of protein, some fats and a carb source, 3 to 4 times a day and not restricting yourself from some chocolate or a doughnut, you won't go far wrong😉 My mission is to educate as many as I can to change the 'diet culture' ! Who wants to spend the rest of their life always counting.... calories, macros, points, syns , the list is endless ... I sure as hell don't 😂 I love food too much !! Don't get me wrong, there are times when I think it's helpful to track food for a period of time but mainly just to educate ourselves, become familiar with portion sizes and understand what the nutritional value of food is!! So please stop over complicating Food !!

Day 6 of Juicing: I miss cooking! 😩
Also thankful for the Farmer’s Market coming through and hooking me up 👊🏼 My juicer WAS acting up a bit today but it’s TBD if it was user error (highly unlikely despite what you’re all thinking...haha not!). If it was the juicer I almost felt like I got a free pass 😏

HEY VT! you're beautiful and I love you! just took the most amazing hike up the backside of @okemomtn and man that was intense 🙂 my legs will definitely be sore tomorrow! but it was absolutely worth it, nothing like spending a few hours in the woods taking in all the foliage ✨it inspired me to get outside more! something I take for granted living in new england.
Tercera parada en el resalao Lobito de Mar de Dani García. Espeto horizontal de boquerones y gamba blanca 🔝. Pulpo seco aún le faltan un par de visitas al FM. Curioso el arroz de chuleta, quizás hoy algo falto de sabrosura. Tarta de queso payoyo me comía un pallet. #gastro#Malaga#marbella
Spending the whole weekend writing a research paper 🙄 butttt it's 78 degrees and I have a ginormous bowl of veggies so no complaints here 🙅🏼🙅🏼 .
First time at cava was a success 🙌🏼 honestly can't even tell you what's in this bowl because I just asked for every vegetable they had 👏🏼👏🏼 Happy weekend!!
🇬🇧Great champagne @henriabelechampagne Rose paired with great moments at @rtecandadogolf.
🇪🇸Gran Champagne @henriabelechampagne rose que va de maravilla con los grandes momentos pasados en @rtecandadogolf
FDOE in the Greek Islands 🇬🇷⛵
A long overdue post of what my diet has looked like while travelling! Although it has varied a lot over the 9 weeks, I was pretty consistent while sailing the islands.
In terms of my overall philosophy to eating while travelling:
▪ Minimise snacking: at home I eat more like 6-7 times a day, but while travelling you usually eat bigger meals, which means eating less frequently
▪ Eat protein early: by focusing on my protein intake for breakfast and lunch, I found it easier to enjoy my snacks/treats and dinner
▪ Save money by buying breakfast and lunch from the supermarket! ▪ Save fats for later in the day: I kept my breakfast and lunch low in fat to allow for more sweet treats and more fat in dinner
4⃣ Breakfast: @fage 2% greek yoghurt 😍 sweetened with @myproteinau toffee flavdrops and kiwi fruit
3⃣ Lunch: Lettuce mix, corn, red kidney beans, tomato, sliced turkey
2⃣ Snack: Something sweet! On this day is was Greek doughnut balls 'loukoumades' topped with nutella and caramelised almonds
1⃣ Dinner: Seafood and Greek salad. Seafood was either grilled white fish (seabass here), grilled octopus or squid 😋
Even though I had an indulgent day today this is how I ate as I toured the islands 😊 Pop any questions below!
