This is part of the reason I started this blog, because I am so passionate about being healthy and more importantly looking my best. So here it goes, once a week I’ll dish out 3 tips that I think you could benefit from incorporating...

Like chocolate… And then you start reading and searching and voila! It turns out you don’t have to give up on chocolate, the candy and the cakes… just eat them raw :) 1 cup raw cacao butter 2 table spoons coconut oil 3...

Why did you want to become Vegan? For ethical reasons? For health reasons? I became Vegan when I was recovering from eating disorders and I realized the only way I could eat and still be skinny would be if I cut out...
Decide for yourself.
Truly, we shouldn’t be eating tones of the stuff anyway, unless you generally want to be an unhealthy slob, I steer clear of the stuff to keep my bits inside my Calvin’s. But here it is, something I heard someone say about sugar not being Vegan, thus I investigated. Is refined sugar vegan? It depends on how you define ‘vegan.’ Refined sugars do not contain any animal...
vegan pumpkin ice-cream.
I’m a HUGE Pumpkin lover. I love Pumpkin soup, scones, bread, muffins and now… Ice-Cream. In the Southern Hemisphere (where I reside) it’s coming up to Summer and being Vegan and an ice-cream addict.
