#205 – One Diet Doesn’t Fit All

Sometime in January (2018), I decided to change my diet completely and go mostly plant based. I did it because I was (and still am, I guess) dealing with a malfunctioning gallbladder that was giving me problems. One thing led to another and I began my so-called “plant based journey”.

Until recently, I never really felt that my age was getting to me…but I’m definitely starting to feel it now.

#187 – Meal Prep: Veggie Soup

Sunday is (usually) always the day I spend a few hours meal prepping my lunches for the coming week. I’ll admit, sometimes I really don’t feel like doing it, but I know how much time and energy I’ll save during the next 5 days…

I never actually realized this, but green peas have a ton of protein! We’re talking about 8g in just one cup! And seeing that it’s relatively low in calories, I think this makes it an excellent protein source for people who follow plant based, vegetarian or vegan diets.

Carefully making a smoothie bowl that not only tastes great but is also “Instagram worthy”, then finding the “perfect” spot, taking several pictures of the smoothie bowl and finally choosing the best one to post on Instagram is really totally ridiculous!!!

This delicious smoothie bowl is sweet and tangy…and loaded with vitamin C! Just 100 grams of Papaya has 100% of the vitamin C you need in a day. 100 grams of passion fruit adds another 50% of vitamin C and 100 grams of cauliflower also have a lot of vitamin C. Both passion fruit and papaya are also rich in vitamin A. This amazing smoothie has:

This smoothie bowl is incredibly filling and had a really nice, sweet and subtle taste.

#158 – This Plant Based Life

I’m telling you, this plant based diet is really something. Eating simple and clean foods, chewing it well and eating slowly is so good.

I feel it.
