Another great day. I believe this directly relates to my kid sleeping through the night so let’s keep this ball rolling shall we?

Breakfast: Oats with a date and candied pecans

Lunch: Cucumber salad and a baked potato that I drizzled my leftover salad dressing on because I forgot hot sauce 🤦🏼‍♀️

Dinner: My dope and easy ramen recipe that I believe I have posted somewhere on here but if you want and can’t find feel free to DM

Dessert: Some chocolate almond butter banana “nice” cream which was sooooo delicious and called for

Hello gorgeous colourful dinner 😍 @simplydelishsoupandsalad mushroom risotto, roasted yams, and steamed lemon pepper broc 🤤 healthy, filling, n so! Freaking! Yummy! If im being honest, I was not the healthiest eater before I went vegan. Kind of love how veganism has forced me into this healthy lifestyle 😱 not saying that I don’t treat myself to some vegan junk whenever I want too hehehhehe. We all have a choice regardless of diet of what kind of life we want to be leading!!!

Do you listen to your gut?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you wonder why the gut is often referred to as the second brain?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Or why we feel nauseous when we give a speech or presentation?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All of these are to do with the Gut-Brain Connection 🧠
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The gut communicates with the brain (and vice versa) via the vagus nerve, the enteric nervous system which lines the entire digestive tract, and through the neurotransmitters made by our gut bacteria.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can support the health of our gut and brain through stress management and stimulating the vagus nerve by singing, humming, chanting, gargling, meditation, splashing cold water on your face, doing yoga, and slow, deep breathing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Balancing our gut microbiome by eating a large diversity of plant foods, increasing fibre, and incorporating fermented foods is also essential to supporting gut health. Go slow with increasing fibre and trying new fermented foods since everyone will react differently.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are interested in learning more check out the podcast I did with Danielle from @thebalancedcollective (link in bio). We talk all about how to support gut health and the science behind the gut-brain connection (which we are only beginning to understand!).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, tonight at 6pm at @plantlifenutrition @dr.matthewnagra and I will be discussing how to support common digestive symptoms, the possible root causes of these issues, if vegans have better gut health, and what to do if your practitioner recommends bone broth, fish oils, of eggs etc (hint: you have other options!)

Today was one of those days where the stars align and just make for an awesome day. My kid slept the night in her own bed. A new boss was hired at my work and it someone I really like and enjoy working for. Got my chores done and some rest. Ate clean and feel really energetic and healthy

Breakfast: Granola with half a banana and some almond butter

Lunch: Cucumber salad, a black bean patty and what was left of my bag of Asian salad

Dinner: Maple roasted carrots and cauliflower with half of a baked potato

On this #TubifyTuesday we’re excited to announce the launch of NEW social series, spotlighting the women who inspire us in the community. Cynthia is our very first profile. 💕 .

Cynthia was born and raised in Vancouver. She currently lives and teaches in Mount Pleasant—at Florence Nightingale Elementary. Working passionately as a reading specialist at the school, she works with at-risk students of all ages. Cynthia loves her community, and you can find her hanging with her partner on the weekends at the Olympic Village dog park with @_omg_its_tank_ . 🐶 .

Cynthia’s #FrozenMoment: “Being 5 months pregnant right now, I often crave a sweet treat after dinner. Knowing that Tubify uses organic fruit, no added sugar, and is minimally processed makes me feel way less guilty when I have one...or two! Minty Moose Limeade is a great substitute for a pregnancy-friendly mojito!” 🍃

Breakfast: A multigrain bun (it was a struggle morning)

Lunch: Asian salad (the kind from the bag that comes with all the fixins)

Dinner: Cucumber salad, a homemade black bean patty and some pandesal

PS I don’t include calories so that anyone feels they need to eat X amount of calories a day or meal. I also CERTAINLY don’t only eat this much in a day. I’m a big snacker so I often keep my meals light so I can munch all day. I include calories on these posts because I personally get a lot of inspiration meal ideas from you guys and instagram and it’s helpful to know the calories ahead of time to know how much to budget for any given day. Just want to make that clear before anyone gets concerned that I only ate 1000 calories today. There was a lot of Christmas crack, almond butter and watermelon where this came from. I just always forget to photograph my snacks. But I also don’t want anyone comparing because we all have different caloric needs based on our body types and lifestyles 🙂

#FruitFact: Frozen fruit isn't fast food. You may have heard rumours that when you buy frozen fruit, you’re cheating the health game a bit. "Buy fresh produce, not frozen" is what your mother told you, right?! As a matter of fact, frozen fruit is still a great source of nutrients. Frozen fruit actually retains the good stuff longer than fresh fruit, because naturally, as fresh fruit ferments, it loses its nutrients. So don't be afraid to freeze your fruit, stick it in a blender and make a melange of sweet, sweet vitamins—you're not cheating your health, we promise. ;) 🍎 What's your favourite way to prepare frozen fruit? 🍌

Today was likely one of the best vegan foodie adventures I’ve ever had. Started off the morning with a delicious brunch at @mythologytoronto in the aptly coined @vegandale neighbourhood. I ordered the shakshuka (because who can say no to what exactly a vegan egg entails?) while my friend ordered the pancakes with soy crispy bacon. The shakshuka was flavourful and the accompanying fingerling potatoes were a nice balance to the rich tomato base of the main dish. The pancakes were ever so fluffy and best paired with the coconut whip. I wish they had soy options for their coffee but nothing beats creamy oat milk. The decor in this place was also 👌. Oh how I wish there was a vegandale in Vancouver! .🌱

WHY DONT I CONSUME DAIRY?! I thought I was doing all I could when I made the decision to go vegetarian at 14. But after learning about the horrors of the dairy industry when I was 19, I couldn’t turn a blind eye any longer.

Did you know that in order for female cows to make milk, they have to be pregnant?! They don’t make milk all the time and constantly “need” to be milked like we all somehow grew up thinking. The dairy we all consume was simply made for a BABY COW to consume! Mother cows are unwillingly artificially inseminated by a human sticking their arm up the cows behind. The mother carries their child for a whole nine months (JUST LIKE HUMANS!). The adorable baby is born into the world, only for it to be taken away - so us humans can drink it’s milk. The baby is taken away for slaughter or to live the same fate as it’s mother - constantly being pregnant, giving birth, having her child taken away, being hooked up to machines in poor conditions. All of this - over and over again until she is spent, and then she is sent to the slaughterhouse.

Dairy has been proven to be unhealthy and unnecessary. Just check out What The Health or Game Changers on netflix. There’s scientific proof that dairy can cause osteoporosis. There are regulations to how much pus and blood can be in your milk - as long as it’s not too much, it’s totally ok! Why would we drink this when we can get the same amount of calcium from plant milk? Why are you worried about the “hormones” from soy milk when you’re drinking something that’s meant to help a baby cow grow? If we can’t even fathom the idea of drinking HUMAN breast milk as adults - why on earth are we still consuming dairy?

And let’s not forget - your milk was made through cruelty. But so was your ice cream, your cheese, your pizza, your margarine, your coffee creamer. A cow had to suffer JUST AS MUCH (if not more) for your mac and cheese as they would’ve for your hamburger. Why haven’t you hopped on the bandwagon yet?

All of this - over and over again until she is spent, and then she is sent to the slaughterhouse.

Dairy has been proven to be unhealthy and unnecessary. Just check out What The Health or Game Changers on netflix. There’s scientific proof that dairy can cause osteoporosis. There are regulations to how much pus and blood can be in your milk - as long as it’s not too much, it’s totally ok! Why would we drink this when we can get the same amount of calcium from plant milk? Why are you worried about the “hormones” from soy milk when you’re drinking something that’s meant to help a baby cow grow? If we can’t even fathom the idea of drinking HUMAN breast milk as adults - why on earth are we still consuming dairy?

And let’s not forget - your milk was made through cruelty. But so was your ice cream, your cheese, your pizza, your margarine, your coffee creamer. A cow had to suffer JUST AS MUCH (if not more) for your mac and cheese as they would’ve for your hamburger. Why haven’t you hopped on the bandwagon yet?

4-Minute Plant-Based Queso 🌱
I love dropping a dollop over roasted potatoes, spreading on a sandwich, dipping my veggies, or serving with quesadillas. 🧀🔥
The creamy texture, cheesy taste and hint of heat this recipe has to offer makes it so versatile - and I’m excited to share it all with you. 🙌🏼
1️⃣ Add to high-speed blender:
• 1 cup raw cashews
• 1 clove garlic, chopped
• 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
• ½ tsp ground cumin
• ¼ tsp chili powder
• ½ tsp salt, more to taste
• ½ Tbsp sriracha
• ⅔ cup hot water
2️⃣ Blend on high speed until smooth and creamy. Gradually add up to another ⅓ cup hot water until desired consistency is reached. Add more salt or sriracha to taste, if desired.
3️⃣ Serve and dust with smoked paprika.

Lasagne. I wish I could say I made this, but I don’t have that kind of talent. @kulakitchen on the other hands SLAYS it!🌱 This is the best lasagne I’ve ever had. They’re a small vegan business here in Vancouver and they are now offering delivery/pick up services! Check them out. They make all sorts of other incredible things!
I bought 3 large containers for $105😻 It freezes nicely so I’ll be able to have lasagne anytime I want!
Thank you Asha! So nice to see you today!

This vegan poutine from @meetgastown was so outrageously good that I’m actually depressed. Why can’t we make vegan poutine in the U.S.?! We just don’t have the technology 😒. Meet is such a wonderful restaurant. The food was great, the kombucha was delicious, and the restaurant itself is beautiful. It’s tucked in this open courtyard with floor to ceiling windows. If you swipe right you can see their BBQ burger with Mac and cheese on top. My oh my that was good too! Thanks to @themindfulstrawberry for grabbing a bite and taking this picture!

FIG & BROWN SUGAR
I was feeling uninspired so I decided to create a whole new look for this fall soap! She's warming my heart already 😍🍂 This weekend I'll be heading over to the mainland to restock for more soaping. If you are in Vancouver, Richmond or the Fraser Valley area, now's your chance to get a soapy delivery from yours truly. Get your orders in and select local pickup at the checkout! See you this weekend, folks!🛀🙋‍♀️🛥

So many new vegan joints popping up in the city 🤩 this chicken burger from @beetboxveg was sooo amazing!
🍔
Did you know 10% of Canadians identify as vegan or vegetarian? That’s 2.3 million vegetarians (increasing from 900,000 in the last 16 years!) and around 850,000 vegans. Most of these people are under 35 - the meat and dairy industries are SHAKING 👏 plus Vancouver is considered Canada’s VEGAN CAPITAL! One person makes a difference, cause one person turns into millions. So what are you waiting for?
