HEARTy Soups And Stews

Almost a year ago, I came out with this post on some hearty and healthy soups and stews. This got me through the fall season with a healthy heart and a full and satisfied stomach. Best of all, I never regretted that I ate too much of something or that it was so hearty that it was bad for me. These recipes are still, by far, my favorite soups and stews. Incredibly, they are all #PLANTSTRONG and #VEGAN. So really, you can’t go wrong. Check out the blog post and the recipes. Those links I added also lead you to some more amazing recipes out there.

Enjoy and Happy October!

Breakfast, It Should Be Mandatory

I wanted to repost this blog because I wanted to share one of my experiences in the beginning of my #plantstrong #plantbased journey. Still on my way but I know that in order to get there I need to take the right steps and follow the right path. Eating when you need to opposed to when you want to were one of the challenges I faced. So for those of you trying to better your self, healthily, read on to my breakfast “is the most important meal of the day!”
