Hello everyone it’s been a while since I posted but I’m back and ready to share a new recipe with you Vegan Alkaline stuffed peppers.  If you’re not familiar with Alkaline foods it’s basically an alkaline/electric plant-based lifestyle that is based on the methodology and protocols of the late Dr. Sebi. This includes the consumption of natural whole plant foods that creates the least amount of mucus in the body, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. Every item used in my stuffed bell peppers recipe is completely vegan and 100% Alkaline. It contains 100% organic Mushrooms, olives, Wild Rice, Tomatoes, onions, and Avocados. This delicious meal was so easy to make.

Boil a pot of  (Alkaline) water if no alkaline water filtered is fine

Prepare your bell peppers of your choice by rinsing and slicing off the top and cleaning out all of the seeds by rinsing with water

Add the bell peppers to the water and boil for 5 minutes or untill soft

While the peppers are boiling prepare your wild rice either stove top or by using rice cooker.

Chop up up your mushrooms, onions, olives, Avocados, and tomatoes

Add veggies to Wild Rice

Mix veggies into the wild rice and add season to taste

Remove bell peppers from boil and place on a oiled baking pan

Stuff the rice mixture into the peppers and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees

Serve Warm Enjoy 😊

The Vegan plate 🌱

Hello everyone!!  Today I want to talk about plating your meals vegan style.. It’s so important that you eat lots of nutritional veggies, legumes, nuts and seeds, whole grains, and lots of fruits if you decide to switch to a plant based lifestyle. It’s so important to include as much of the foods above in your meals.  I’ve met a few girls including myself ..who started this diet and were only eating once a day or eating really tiny servings. Did you know that 1 pound of kale is only 223 calories!! Yes I said that right! And 1 pound of broccoli is only 153 calories!! So don’t be afraid to load up the plate with your veggies and fruits. One of the best part about being vegan is that you can be very generous with your portion size without feeling guilty.. and even after a heavy meal of veggies I don’t feel heavy at all… If that make a sense😶.. your body just feels better.. I’m telling you it’s amazing! Check out the example plate above and use it as a guide when preparing your meals 😊.

Until next time..

Vegan Mexican style Tacos 🌮

944D5AAA-9ADE-49D2-A7A8-AD94C7850744

Hello everyone thought I would share with you  a 30 minute recipe for a quick lunch or dinner. You only need a few ingredients and with the help of my rice cooker only 2 non stick skillets. So, I used a can of Goya black beans rinsed, Jasmine white rice, Fresh Jalepenos, onions, fresh cilantro, bell peppers, diced tomatoes and guacamole. I first placed my jasmine rice in the rice cooker on the quick rice setting, while that was cooking I chopped my veggies and placed my canned black beans in a strainer and rinsed untill clean. Once the rice finished, I scooped the rice in my skillet with the rinsed black beans, chopped veggies, diced tomatoes, and guacamole and I sautéed it altogether with some taco seasoning and lemon pepper for spices and I placed my stove on warm. In another small skillet I lightly sprayed it with olive oil and placed my corn tortillas. I fried untill crispy and golden on both sides which took about 1 minute on high heat. I added my fresh cilantro,  jalepenos, and picante sauce for my toppings and voila! Lunch was served 😋. This was so easy, vegan 🌱 and omg so delicious! Let me know what you think!

Until next time

My 3 month Vegan Weight Loss Journey 😁

So…I started my vegan journey on Christmas Day 2017. I watched this documentary called “What the Health “ and it changed my life! It totally opened my 👀. I weighed 155 lbs at that time.. 😳 i Just weighed in for the first time in a while and my scale read 134.2! I couldn’t believe it! I got on and off.. moved it around the house .. the numbers remained the same. I did that until I finally convinced myself that it was true! That’s like a 20 lb difference! I rarely worked out during that time.. only clean vegan eating. I actually just started my workout routine last week which consists of Pilates, strength training, and cardio. I will be posting within the next couple of days and I’m excited to see what the scale will say next! I feel great, and energized .. my clothes .. well they are falling off of me but no complaints there 😄 it just means Im getting that much closer to my goal weight of 125. I’m so excited to go shopping for my new body. I’m really enjoying my new vegan lifestyle. Honestly when I started this I didn’t know how long it would last.. Growing up in New Orleans.. having like 3 different types of meat in 1 meal was almost a daily occurrence. So I’m so proud of myself that I made it this far! I don’t see myself going back now! My life has seriously changed for the better. I feel healthier, I’ve lost the unnecessary weight that I had accumulated from a unhealthy lifestyle, I feel like there’s no stopping me! Hands down The best feeling ever! I’ll be Hitting the grocery store in the AM so I’ll be posting some yummy recipes and pics within the week.  Also, I’ll be in my favorite vacation spot so I’ll post additional reviews on the sage bistro! I talked about it in my earlier post it’s like the best vegan restaurant on the planet in Echo Park DTLA.. Anyways stay tuned 🙂 thanks for reading!

Until next time 🙂
