Sweet Things 4 Life
Sharing our journey toward a more natural, simple, healthful lifestyle.
This week I made a meal plan for our dinners to help save time and money. I didn't plan this but it worked out that every night was a recipe from a different part of the world. I highly recommend using a meal plan to keep your evening meals from getting redundant. This can be especially true if you're new to the vegan lifestyle. It can be overwhelming trying to find new recipes coming from the SAD diet. Creating a meal plan helps to add variety, to try new things and to help when out shopping. All of the recipes were new... some were better than others (the potstickers did not go as well as I hoped).
HCLF, carb-up, cruelty-free, 80/10/10, raw til 4... when you first investigate the vegan lifestyle you might feel like you're listening to a foreign language. I know when we first went vegan we were quickly overwhelmed by the many different areas of thought surrounding vegan diets.
Today's blog is going to help you decipher some key terms surrounding the vegan lifestyle.
This past week we went on vacation down in the Caribbean and had a great time taking a step back from reality to really focus on ourselves and being able to relax. It was amazing being surrounding by all the tropical weather we don’t normally see here in northern Indiana. It was an amazing break but unfortunately it of course had to come to an end. Before we left we didn’t buy anything out of fear of it spoiling or going bad before we came home. To avoid throwing anything away all we bought was a box of really green bananas so by the time we got home they would be ripe enough to devour… and ripe they were.
