A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet. Well sometimes that's not entirely true. Sometimes strangers are a bit dangerous and should be avoided. But not this lady! She's my airbnb guest I only met yesterday and she is awesome! A vegan foodie and into her yoga and reiki- straight away we were like long lost buddies reuniting after many years! @larabhewitt where you been all my life?? 😂 thank you for coming to stay with us in Napier and for joining my #vinyasa class @yinyoganapier this morning. Thank you for the fun times, laughs and silliness and vegan nerdisms. Check out the vegan shirt lol 💚💛💜 #veganrepresent#stereotypicalvegan#sisters#veganyoginis#vegannerds
Today is a momentous day 🙌🏽 @donna_harley had her FIRST (of many I'm sure) meatless mondays!! So so proud! Every little bit helps people, not expecting everyone to change overnight but switching your diet in the right direction little by little can have big impacts on your health as well as our environment & make the changes you make more sustainable! Yay for Donna! Hope Seth approved too! 😘😘😘 heres to many more 😊 #meatlessmonday#makethechange#healthiswealth
was für ein magischer ort um zu frühstücken 🌵 irgendwie ist es schon verrückt - vorgestern saß ich noch in santiago, in diesem cafe das mein #crazyplantlady herz höher schlagen ließ und heute sitze ich wieder hier, versunken im alltag. man kann ihn schon vermissen, den süden und seine städte. was ich aber sicher nicht vermisse ist das südliche frühstück. ja, alles hat seine vor- und nachteile. und irgendwie wird es schon richtig sein, so wie und wo wir gerade sind.
I think this is a photo that I'll look at in 10 years and when I do, I'll instantly be reminded of what's behind that smirk. It'll invoke feelings of what a wicked/wild/weird/wonderful/confusing/beautiful/twisty/tricky time your mid twenties are. I wonder what the mid-30s Karls will want to tell the Karls in this photo. Only time will tell. This year so far for me has been experienced through 8 countries and has provided me with many connections with people who I am ever grateful for. I can feel myself growing personally and professionally by the day. Feels weird, but I'm into it. Said good bye to Europe today, time to go figure out what's next. Thank you to everyone who made my time here brilliantly weird. It's really not where you are, but who you're with that matters and I felt that a lot during these last 2 weeks and throughout my last 3 years of being relatively nomadic. Im excited to see how the path unfolds from here. Watch this space ❤
Home sweet home #sydney
On the train for the final leg home 😅 28 hours traveling from Xi'an, China (home of the terracotta arme) back to Sydney / Central Coast.
We had the most amazing 10 days filled with culture, amazing people, incredible food and funny stories 😘
I'm blown away by this country! Traveling is the most fascinating thing I can imagine, it opens new doors, let's you better understand other people and sets communication back to baby age, where you try to communicate with your face, hands & eyes - luckily I'm grown-up enough to not lay on the back scream & wave with arms & legs when nobody understood me 😂 I couldn't imagine a world without Google, Facebook & Insta anymore and yet I survived 😉
Will post some shots over the coming days...
Has anyone been to China before? What did you like best? What surprised you most?
had brunch with the absolutely beautiful @itsjahrusha today, I'm in love 😍, with her and all the gorgeous vegan food we devoured 🌱💕 Also, @thegreendoorrestaurant is still one of my Ottawa favourites for vegan/vegetarian food, a must go.
Hello Hello!! .
I am a Vegan Medical Doctor. (NB : i do not know it all and all advice & criticism is appreciated)
Decided to share my story just in case someone else might relate.
I went vegan in April 2016 and it was purely for personal reasons. I initially did not make the decision to protect animals.
My main aims were #healthybody !
I never liked the sight of soo many ingredients at the back of food parcels. I found the #foodindustry to be very profit driven and incorporates alot of 'toxins' into the 'food'. .
I also went vegan to gain self control. I felt like i am very impulsive and whatever i want or crave, i MUST get.
Not just in food but in general life, i could not have adequate self control.
I decided on a strict diet as to create bounderies and gain control.
I have however always had a bad relationship with food. Throughout Medical school my food was junk! It was more easily available and cheaper.
I however went in and out of the lifestyle.
I am to share how i have managed to get back and stay #vegan .
The truth is, #Veganism makes the world and body a better place.
Being a Doctor, i certify people dead on a daily, with many of them dying from lifestyle diseases that could have been prevented. #Plantbased diet is proven to be healthier.
There are other healthy eating habits, eat like you love yourself.
Please lookout for more posts and share my page as i take you through my journey.
kein stückchen natur geht mir so nahe wie das meer. sein salziger geruch, der sich auf die haut legt und in den haaren hängen bleibt, seine tiefe farbe, die sich vor den augen ausstreckt und die sanft stürmischen bewegungen, die eine meiner liebsten geräuschkulissen entstehen lässt.
es wirkt gleichzeitig so lebend und beruhigend. es kann so sanft sein und so angsterregend.
einmal im jahr brauche ich das. für mich waren die wochen am meer, die ich in den letzten jahren erlebt habe, viel mehr ein neuanfang als silvester es je war.
danach war alles frisch, bereit neu gestaltet zu werden. meine gedanken durchgespült, offen für neue bahnen.
Just come back from a really nice holiday on the South of Portugal and it was the first time we were abroad since my husband became a vegan and me a flexitarian, neither of us eats any kind of dairy so I have to say it was a bit challenging to find nice meals without it, but we managed at the end! Let me share some of the experiences we learn from this...
. Find a hotel with self catering facilities so you will have the best of both . Most of the holiday places ( at least in Europe) you can find a mexican place; you can always order a veggie burrito!
. Soups are always a good option!
Let me know if you have any other tips!!!
One of my omni friends just sent me photos from her last night dinner at a vegan restaurant in Ibiza! Hummus and roast veg tart followed by vegetable pizza 👌
Food looks amazing - when's the next flight to Ibiza?! 🛫
