Health is Wealth
Aside from fashion I take pride in living a healthy Vegan Lifestyle. Living a Vegan Lifestyle can sometimes be tricky when it comes to calorie intake, so I thought I’d share my day to day eating routine and how I make sure my calorie intake is being met. with being vegan I’ve learned that preparation is EVERYTHING. convenient microwaveable foods are out the window and your meals will require a little more strategy and love .
I always start my day out with an infused alkaline water . Adding lemons and fruit will not only alkalize your water but also help with your digestion and getting the gears moving in your body in the morning. My Personal favorite mixture of fruits to add to my infused water are Limes, Blueberries and Lemons. Something about that mixture in the morning wakes my sense up and helps me get my day started. You’ll instantly feel hydrated and replenished. Making infused waters are as simple as 1,2,3. All you have to do is cut a few lemons with your preferred fruits , stash it away in a mason jar overnight and you’re set … yup just that easy.
After drinking my infused water I always start my day with a potent GREEN JUICE. Now green juices are a little more harder but so worth it . you’ll need a cold pressed juicer … which isn’t too pricey if you’re shopping at the right stores like Big Lots, Walmart or even online like amazon. Once you have your juicer its all about deciding what will be in your juice. For me I’m very selective on what I add to my green juice because I absolutely hate when its too bitter from too many greens but I also hate when its too sweet from fruits. So my recipe for my juices always require a good balance of both. What I usually add is Kale for 1 , Kale will be your base in your juice . with it being the most dense nutrient food on the planet you’ll definitely want to make sure you’re putting a decent amount in your juice for maximum benefits….. But you also don’t want to make your juice unbearably bitter so It’s always fun to add a little ginger, A couple apples and of course some fresh lemons. adding green apples will help balance that bitterness from the kale by adding some crisp sweet flavoring. Not only that but adding apples will help push your kale juice through the juicer since green apples are 86% water.
finishing my morning routine I always like to finish with a hearty Smoothie/ Vegan Nice Cream. Which I’ll get more in detail about next post but the main trick to thickening up your smoothie up is COCONUT milk. coconut milk has soo many benefits like lowering cholesterol, Helping with weigh loss and helps cut dairy completely out of your diet .
