PURE #plantpower is calling. 🌱Wild plants are still better than commercially cultivated ones. Now, it's the perfect season for a little walk to find edible wild plants. The young leaves are perfect for salads. I had like half of the garden as dandelion, goatweed and violets today plus sweet potato mapelized with seeds.
FIGS. MANGOS. 😍 They make my tastebuds SING. My heart FULL. My mind ALERT. My soul CONTENT. Shout out to my amazing friend @mindfuldiabeticrobby for picking up both of these AHHHHHMAZING fruits for me. 🙏🏼 I'd be pretty fruitless without you. You are more than MORE THAN appreciated and loved.💞
Sometimes when I lift weights
I visualize a vegan world, billions of dollars, and total freedom.
I also visualize those things at all of the others times too.
Feeling Abundant As Fuck
"Every now and again sometimes I get lost on the wind of a dream.
The air gets clean, the seas get wide and I can do anything.
The pain it won't even cross my mind there is wonder in everything.
The rope gets loose and the chains unbind and I can do anything." -@whatismae
1 Corinthians 6:19. "Do you not know that your body is the temple of The Spirit of Holiness who dwells within you, whom you have received from God, and you are not your own?" Is feeding your body the dead bodies of His unnecessarily killed creatures being good to your body? #weartheword#christianvalues#veganlove
It's that time of the week - fresh bread Saturday 👍😋🍞!!! I do LOVE my cape seed rolls AND I also believe it's important to have gratitude for the little things. ----------------------------------------
I hope your weekend also includes some well planned deliciousness! (yep planned & chosen with volition rather than a guilt inducing unplanned outta control demolish fest 😱😬😩) #bakersdelight#eatbetternotless#cantouttrainabaddiet
let’s talk perfectionism for a moment. does anyone deal with this? i have been a perfectionist in many ways for basically my entire life. but over time, i began to recognize that it wasn’t serving me and was really only holding me back, so i started taking steps to move away from that way of thinking. you see, as my ladycrush @brenebrown explains, perfectionism is not asking "how can i be my best self?” but rather "what will people think?” 🤔✨❤️ the way i see it, perfectionism is living and making decisions with a cloud (a cloud of what we believe other people want from us, and what will make people love and be proud of us) hanging over us, blocking our view of what we want for ourselves. it also puts us in a place where our happiness or feelings of success are reliant on external validation from others. this sets us up to lose.
it’s okay to want to be good at what we do. it’s okay to strive toward our fullest potential, to chase big dreams, and to have a mindset that we can always improve. but i don’t think it’s okay to constantly feel “not enough,” and i don’t think it’s okay to let our perceptions of what others feel about us determine whether or not we are enough. we will be much happier and healthier if we pull away the cloud of perfectionism and focus on our own view of who we are (with a foundation of self-love, grounded in mindfulness and compassion, of course! 😉)
I love exploring nature in a new place! I think I lived on my bike and in the forests/ponds/lakes when I was small. I saw some sweet ducks today that looked different than I've seen before! What's your best part of your vacay? 💦💦💦
Here are some grave facts about extinct animals:
🐉 today, the animals most threatened with going extinct are amphibians.
🐉 camels originated in North America but became extinct on the continent 10 000 years ago.
🐉 hunted for its oil and skin, a marine mammal called the seller's sea cow went extinct in 1768, less than 30 years after its discovery by Georg stellar.
🐉 during earth's history there have been at least 5 mass extinctions - times when the majority of all living species died off.
🐉 more than 9 out of 10 organisms that have lived on on Earth have died off.

Vacation/staycation has been so good to me. How do I get rich and travel all the time? #pleasehelp -- I also had one tea at dinner and I've been hyped the f up since then. Squats felt great, no one's at the gym at 10p on Fridays, who knew?

I am continuously mocked and almost attacked, for speaking about veganism from a Christian perspective (one would think right?). But the point is that this type of criticism has only pushed me closer to God as I am continuously asking Him to give me signs, to speak to me, to guide me and to show me. I ask Him "am I wrong for seeing life this way? Am I crazy to believe what I do?" Just today I asked yet once again, and in the most subtlest of ways He lead me to this passage! I felt to my knees and thanked Him, once again, for answering: "A righteous man regards the life of his animal, But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. He who tills his land will be satisfied with bread, But he who follows frivolity is devoid of understanding.”
Well this was ridiculous. Jackfruit! Canned in brine from @traderjoes rinsed, cooked (sautéed with onions in olive oil, then in oven with barbecue sauce. Some Just Mayo and broccoli (sesame seeds & nutritional yeast) ===== AMAZING. everyone had seconds. #traderjoesvegan#deliciousveganfood
