I ♥ KALE salads! I mixed up a biggg bowl of kale, tomatoes, green onions and sesame seeds with olive oil and red wine vinegar to go with dinner. It’s an easy and healthy way to get your greens in for the day and quite filling!☆

Why is kale such a #superfood ? it’s called “the queen of greens” for a reason- it is low calorie, high in #fiber, #iron, #vitamin K, C, A, loaded with #antioxidants , #hearthealthy , high in #calcium , and a great #detox food. Be sure to get it organic as it is part of the #dirtydozen list !

AVOCADOS☆ are.amazing. I eat them almost daily and one of the easiest ways to eat them is on a good vegan slice of bread. This one is #italian #artisanbread or #ezeikeil bread is great too! You can mush up half or a whole avocado in a bowl and top it with some black pepper and red pepper flakes for flavor. Here I topped this slice with halfed #cherrytomatoes aswell —- avocados are one of the healthiest foods on the planet! They contain about 25 #essential #nutrients, #fiber, #protein and #vitamins A, B, C, E, K. They’re #hearthealthy , help lower #cholesterol , contain #antiinflammatory properties , great for #skin care, protect against #cancer , regulate #bloodsugar and the list goes on! :)

I completely forgot about my #vega #protein #powder for a while but mann this was yummy and so simple. — Here is what I mixed in my #nutribullet : one #banana , a spoonful of choc-a-lot vega powder, #almondmilk and #chiaseeds with #coconutflakes and #cinnamon on top ~ pure bliss & a wonderfully healthy pick me up! ☆ P.S. what’s YOUR favorite #Vega protein powder? I would love any suggestions of vegan ones you enjoy, doesn’t have to be a vega product :)

Breakfast this morning was of course #oatmeal buuut jazzed up with some #coconutflakes ! :)  these are unsweetened flakes and they really add a nice texture and coconut flavor. I pretty much throw anything into oatmeal that I have at hand so today it was: #banana #kiwi #cinnamon #carobchips #almondmilk #irishoats #flaxseeds  #chiaseeds ♡ sometimes oatmeal is the only reason I get up in the morning- I LOVE breakfast.

Finally an OUTDOOR YOGA session complete! :) there is nothing like doing yoga outdoors with the soft ground below, vast sky above and a breeze between the trees. It was a warm and sunny day with a little bit of sporadic & crazy wind that occasionally blew both my yoga mats all around but I couldn’t help but only laugh everytime. I was too content to do anything else. Afterwards I sat and read out loud from #thepowerofnow to this sweet little thing nestled on my leg. Pure love for the little things and this lovely day ♡

LUNCH♡ inspired by the lovely @tarastiles ! Her “rice noodles with almond cream curry” dish sounded too delicious and easy not to try. Visit her site tarastiles.com for the recipe. Some things I changed was using #peanutbutter #sriracha #dried #basil  as substitutes otherwise kept it the same and it turned into a tasty & light meal! I topped it with #grape #tomatoes and #pepper. Other ingredients include: #ricenoodles #redbellpepper #coconutmilk #garlic #curry #powder #redpepperflakes ☆ all mixed in my #nutribullet !

Breakfast this morning:) my favorite thing to make is defn oatmeal and its so so versatile. Lately I pour almond milk after the oatmeal is made so give that a try if you don’t like the dryness of oatmeal. Then top it with anything and everything you like. Fruit and spices like cinnamon add flavor and sweetness without having to add table sugar. Today I topped it with #banana #kiwi #carobchips #chiaseeds #flaxseeds #cinnamon and #almondmilk —-give it a try ! I use #irish #steelcut #oats and its ready in about five mins ♡#hearty #healthy #vegan #breakfast #instafood #instahealth #tip #yummy #vegangirl #staple

I LOVE food (and simply the act of eating) so that means having snacks on me or near me as often as possible. Some of my favorite things to snack on and pack for lunches/class/work or just keep in my purse are nuts, dried fruit and 72% dark chocolate. Currently we always have a large stock of #walnuts #almonds #driedfruit mix of cranberries, blueberries, raisins etc and dried #figs plus #dark #chocolate (mandatory) so I throw some of each in a baggy for a snack anytime of the day. And of course im addicted to #kale #fruit #chiaseed #smoothies esp with the weather warming up (i crave more liquids) they are a good snack and fill you up quick. Pro tip: you will only eat food you have in the house so if you’re tryna lay off some not so healthy snacks…don’t even buy them! You can’t eat something you don’t have within easy reach. Especially if you’re a late night #snacker like me :P
