Veganism and less suffering on the planet is a great but the truth is nothing ever dies in creation. Over 4 years ago I stopped eating flesh foods to regain my health. I continue to eat a blood free diet because this is the most beneficial path for my soul. Furthermore, sticking to a 100% raw living food diet takes me to an even HIGHER level of awareness. A state of consciousness I thought to be unreachable on Earth. The easiest way I have found to increase ones consciousness is to eat a biophoton rich diet of strictly living raw food. If you want 100% results you have to put in 100% effort. This ain’t too bad of a spread for December in Oregon 😁 These sugar apples from @miamifruit are OFF THE HOOK! Love y’all 💚
On a daily basis, I hear people associate carbs with making you/someone fat, if you cut out any macronutrient you will lose weight, as you are then reducing calories from not consuming that macro. The same would happen with fat or protein, so to summerise...
Carbs don't make you fat,
Eating to much does.
Two exams down, one to go!! 😁 it feels great to be so close to winter break and relaxing. Exams weren’t toooo stressful this year, it just took a lot of my time to study (just ask my boyfriend 😘).
Good luck to anyone in exams right now!! (Probably like no one at this point because my exams go pretty late 😅)
Here is a fresh bowl that I could really go for right now - coooovered in franks red hot sauce because that stuff is delicious!
Sugar snap peas, spiralized carrot, roasted butternut squash, fire roasted corn, edamame, and baked soy tofu
CANCER that’s a very scary word. “You did this to yourself! How could you let yourself get to this point?! You’re practically 300 pounds! You could’ve prevented this!” These are just some things that I’ve been muttering to myself these past few months. I got my first mammogram today. I found a lump on my breast and after going to an OBGYN, I was sent out to a specialist. Originally, I was just supposed to have an ultrasound, but after those results came back, they needed to see deeper, so then came the mammogram. What’s even more shocking to me is that I got a call from my OBGYN a few days after my initially appointment telling me that I had not one, but 14 high risk cancerous cells found in my cervix that they found from my pap smear. If this doesn’t wake me up nothing will. Life and death. All at my hand. Yeah, I can blame genetics this, genetics that, but really I play a huge (pun not intended, okay maybe it was) role in this. I can change the way I eat and the movement I do and I can literally change the course of my life. I’m not accepting this as my fate. I’m making the switch to a plant based diet. For the past four years, I’ve been eating a highly processed, junk food vegan lifestyle. I’m vegan for the animals first and foremost, but I think it’s time that I also start being vegan for me too. ❤️🌱
People say that we shouldn’t care about how our bodies look. We should have body positivity no matter what shape we are in. I have a different perspective on this. If your body isn’t at its potential should we excuse our lack of love we actually show it? If you really loved your body would you not desire to fuel it with the best nutrients and see it as an EXTENSION of you rather than you? I see too many people saying they are body positive yet they put the worst possible nutrients/chemicals into their body, is this an act of self love or the absence of it? I started actually FEELING self love for my body when I started TREATING it with love, rather than just forcing myself to think this way about myself which I’ve now realized wasn’t authentic. We should have self love but we shouldn’t be in denial about the health of our body and let this stop us from giving it what it needs instead of what we WANT, which is usually fueled by emotion, addiction or the desire to numb ourselves. If we really loved our body, we should show this with our actions, not just our words.
Last year I was 100kg and as much as I affirmed I loved my shape, deep down I did not. I’ve lost over 20kg since then and only when I started showing my body I loved it by giving it healthy living plant foods, drinking lots water, doing heaps of exercise, getting sunshine, meditation and getting out in nature did I actually start to feel love for my body because it was reflected in my actions. My visceral fat was also at a dangerous level of 11 and now is at healthy 2 🙏🏼🙏🏼 my question is, do you really love your body if you don’t care what you put into it? If you disagree with what I’ve said above, that’s okay. This is my perception of my journey from self hate to the direction of self love. You don’t have to agree with me and that is the beauty of opinion. I didn’t write this with the intention to offend anyone this is just my view on aligning self love with health. Much love everyone 🙏🏼 I really do mean that.. Take back your power ❤️❤️

I can’t wait until the documentary the game changers comes out, and it’s shown how good plant based nutrition is for performance 🌱
