I started to take these because I wanted to have MORE energy and hoped it would clear up my acne, not only did I get more energy and clearer skin but I began to feel more balanced within, my sleep is amazing, I've kicked my cravings to the curb, my hair and nails grew crazy long and my IBS symptoms improved ✨
THAT'S why I call them my magic beans 😍
If you know someone struggling with any of the things I was that you'd like to see and feel better, send me a message or give this post a like/comment 😘😘
Destroyed this in a minute 😍 Falafel balls with edamame pasta, some sauce, and vegan Parmesan cheese that I got from vitacost 😊 Easy and delicious. Only 20 minutes! The only thing premade was the falafel I got from @sprout_seoul which this is the first time Ive had it and in love! Thanks to sprout 👊🏻🌱😊
We all have different bodies and we continuously learn what works best for them. Our lives and personalities also continuously change and evolve so it may feel like we are constantly trying to figure stuff out about ourselves.
Personally I have come to know that my body functions best on a vegan diet that is slightly higher in protein and fats (for my hair, skin and hormones) as opposed to something extremely high carb. I do like my carbs and I eat a large amount of carbs but I know that too many is not great for ME. What I mean by this is that I sometimes overindulge on some vegan sweets and snacks because they are healthier and do not contain any refined sugars or copious amounts of lard etc, but too much of the healthier sweets can also be a caloric overload for ME which leads to a little weight gain. Therefore I try to mostly have my sweets and snacks before a workout. I am not someone who is able to work out efficiently without fuel in my body, so that kind of works out well.
My body weight fluctuates like any normal person, just like my emotional or mental state isn't always constant. For me it's a matter of doing a quick reassessment and figuring out what has changed, and then finding a healthy way to get back on track. The term #crueltyfree should not just be aimed at animals but yourself as well. Just like #bekindtoeverykind includes yourself too.
Love your body. Love your mind. Experiment and find what works for you. Be confident. Be happy. .
Yes, I eat lunch quite early. My lunch today is a simple black bean and quinoa chili (which I almost always have in bulk the fridge), on top of a baked sweet potato with steamed kale and avocado. Xx
VEGGIES HELP BEEF YOU UP. A study in the Journal of American Clinical Nutrition analyzed the health records of 3000 people and found that plant-based protein benefits musculoskeletal health as equally as animal protein.🍃💪🏻#eatforabs
What you focus on expands
I created a vision board this weekend - filled with photos of what I want my life to look like. Loads of visuals that bring up good feelings in me when I look at them
When you have a vision board up where you can see it you end up doing a mini visualization every time you look at it - and visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do. Your thoughts - and eventually feelings - are actually forming your entire life experience (holla at me LOA nerds 👋🏽)
And it's so much fun! I'm maybe even more addicted to WeHeartIt than Instagram. So I get my inspiration from there and then woaaaaaah - vision board made.
We got through hump day and now we're planning for the weekend! If you're entertaining this weekend, homemade dip is super easy to make. This is a yummy Basil, Spinach and Cashew Dip. Delicious with some biscuits, bread and some white wine. What's your go-to dip?
The Castleman Gals are fuelled and ready for a fun filled day ahead!! 🎊
A yummylicious 🍒 Choc Cherry Smoothie🍒 for me and 🍫Choc Shakes🍫 for the girls. Not to forget our magic beans and sweeties! Were good to Go Go Go 🏃🏃🏃 All 100% wholefood goodness powering up our bodies 💥💪💥 #vitalityrising#47fruitandveg#plantprotein#healthychoices#healthgoals
"As a general rule, I don't use supplements - well not the usual processed crap that seems so prevalent in the health & fitness industry. That being said, the concept of having something to support your nutrition is sound - I use a transdermal magnesium oil spray, I take zinc tablets, and when I need to get a good, healthy dose of nutrients quickly, my supplement of choice is the HEAL THY SELF meal replacement.
With nothing but a fantastic mix of wonderful, raw, organic ingredients, I dare say it's healthier than most of my meals! At the very least it's delivering more nutrients in one shot that most of us get from any single meal.
It's raw, dairy free, vegan, grain free, paleo and gluten free. It's made up of cold pressed hemp protein, cool milled almond butter, hulled hemp seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, dates, raw cacao, sultanas, maca, extra virgin coconut oil, true cinnamon and ginger.
Per serving it delivers 13.5g protein, 12.5g total fats, 16.3g of carbohydrates as well as being high in Omega 3, Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, Iron, Calcium, Potassium, Phosphorus and Vitamin B6.
Honestly - what more could you ask for? This is literally the best product on the market. It tastes great too 😊💜🙏🏽 #yoga#supplement#mealreplacement#healthyself#healthyliving#vegan#goodnutrition#unconventionalathlete#kettlebell#kettlebelltraining#kettlebellathlete#workout#eatclean#yogaathlete#yogaeverydamnday#paleo#yogalove#yogajourney#yogainspiration#namaste#plantprotein

Overeating is easy to do when consuming refined and processed foods. By consuming foods high in nutrients and low in calorie density, you can support energy production and muscle recovery without excess fat gain, while avoiding the energy-sucking process of digesting refined foods

“Green Detox Smoothie” using my new greens powder whilst reading all about blood sugar in the latest Natural Health Mag ! Although eating is part of my lifestyle, summer has its way of making you indulge on junk food and make you laid back. Therefore, a green smoothie with an extra detoxifying boost is well needed every now and then! I was hesitant to try it, thinking it would be way too strong for my liking. I have to admit, it turned out delicious and is packed with so many nutrients!
All you need is:
1 handful of kale/spinach
1 frozen banana
1/2 tsp green detox powder
250ml apple and ginger juice
Few ice cubes
Blend everything until super smooth and drink up!
Busy week ahead + some pasta leftovers = Pasta Doughnuts for adding onto the greens in the lunch boxes 😋🌱 Fun & handy to eat 👍🏼 And a small tip: gf pasta works wonderfully w/out any eggs or cheese needed - just mix in some veggies & spices whisked in a little bit of pasta water, and bake in the oven for 15min 💪🏼😉💚
Did you know... KIN protein has added probiotics and fibre to aid digestion? BUT, DID YOU ALSO KNOW... that ALL of our packaging is completely reusable and washable... making us kind on the inside and out 💙 No waste tip - Refill your Travel Collection tubs and put them in each gymbag for essential snacKIN 💼 #essentials#healthygut#healthymind @kin_nutrition
Seasoned, roasted potato cubes with organic ketchup; red onion and lentil stew with tomato paste, a little dijon mustard, bay leaves and freshly cracked black pepper and pink himalayan salt and tofu scramble with nutritional yeast, a little extra virgin olive oil, turmeric, black pepper, salt, garlic, onion and lots of spinach with freshly squeezed orange juice 😉😜❤ If your first thought when You heard the word "vegan" is some kind of ultra hippy light eater I get it I had similar thoughts as well. Did You know that this meal has 33g protein - complete protein; covering every single amino acid need by at least 70% with just one meal!!!!! And it covers 60% of your daily calcium intake and 67%of your daily iron intake? I used cronometer for reference.I sometimes check our foods there just to make sure. 💪👓🔬 And why should You look into it more??? Because the STANDARD PRACTICES which we keep the animals in ... beyond cruel, disrespectful and awful. And no, not just in America but everywhere in the world including Europe. I watched the @landofhopeandgloryfilm a week ago with my husband - You can watch it FOR FREE ON YOUTUBE😉 and You should check it out as well. WHY? Because You probably have NO IDEA what You support day in and day out. I know how easy and simple it is to just look away from things like that; start to immediately make excuses in your head why it's justifiable and it's NOTHING LIKE THAT in your neighbourhood. I've been there. It's NOT EASY. But once You are strong enough to witness the global consequences of our actions You can make informed and BETTER choices. For yourself, for them 🐬🐟🐣🐥🐔🐮🐷 and for our home 🌍
i hope you all have a beautiful morning and a great week so far. i try to be extra grateful for what i have this week. it's so easy to focus on the unimportant stuff while neglecting what is actually important. - this morning i started slow by having a cup of coffee, doing yoga, planning my day and having porridge. now i'm gonna get a quick workout in and go for a walk. have a nice day ❤☀
Made this for lunch today... Organic Edamame Spaghetti sauteed in garlic and basil broth topped with dairy-free parmesan... Thumbs up to the gluten free spag!!👍😉 #vegan#veganfood#glutenfree#plantprotein
Nutrition experts estimate that most of us need between 0.8 and 1 gram of protein per day for every kilogram of body weight. That works out to 55 grams of protein per day for someone who weighs 150 pounds or approximately 10 percent of normal caloric intake (people in endurance training and pregnant women might require a bit more, of course). If a vegan eats a reasonably varied diet and consumes a sufficient amount of calories, he or she will undoubtedly get enough protein. And, unlike animal protein, plant-based protein sources contain healthy fiber and complex carbohydrates.
Our bodies are made up mostly of different kinds of protein that consist of varying combinations of 20 amino acids. Only half of these amino acids can be manufactured by the human body. The other half, which are known as “essential amino acids,” can easily be obtained by eating a balanced vegan diet.
Festival camping a few weeks back- I've still managed to keep with the trend of wearing no make-up since, apart from the odd day on holiday when I did for the hell of it. My skin has never felt so good.
This is my favorite view, my pup my love and a green trail. This day we hiked 4 miles at Penwood near Simsbury. I have not posted a food pic in a while because I don't want to keep posting my own homemade food, I more so want this platform to be a guide to local vegan options at restaurants. Please leave me suggestions, especially in the Harford area. If you're a restaurant owner or chef let me know what to get in your establishment and I would be more then happy (hungry) to review it here😜

It's hump-day today! Love that feeling when it's almost closer to Friday than Monday 😄
Roma tomatoes cut in half, seeds cored out, sprinkle salt, teensy bit of sugar, drizzle high quality olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon raw garlic, sprinkle fresh or dry parsley. Bake on 250f for 3ish hours. Will melt your mouth.
