My Goals Right Now

Image
Some people don’t have goals, but then where is your life going. How are you going to improve? I have a few simple goals. 

Goal 1: transition fully to a plant based diet and find vegan alternatives to everyday items. Currently the only times I eat meat is when someone else is feeding me. All the meals I make at home are 99% plant based. I am hoping to change that to 100% plant based and to not be buying anymore items that may include animal products like checking my soaps ect. I also am working towards replacing my leather items like work shoes with synthetic options and then donating the leather. So that it isn't going to waste but I don't have to feel bad about wearing the clothing.
Goal 2: Be as active as I can I really am not the most active person. I don’t lay in bed all day at all. I just don’t work out; I ride occasionally but even that I haven’t been doing as much. My goal is to ride as much as I can and to start working out at home, then to eventually go to the gym. When…

My Purpose

Hiya!

One for the reasons that I always struggle to continue blogging was a lack of purpose. Why was I really doing it and what was the point? I wasn’t changing anyone’s lives, were people actually reading my content or were they just commenting pretending they did? I would be enjoying writing blog posts but then would get stuck, thinking this is a waste of time I shouldn’t be putting so much time and effort into this. What was the point? Back then I was just writing about topics I was interested in, sharing my adventures ect. I didn’t have something I actually wanted to share with people, and definitely not something people were actually going to be benefited by. I wasn’t passionate about what I was writing. It was always such a challenge to stay motivated when there wasn’t really a reason for me to be doing it.
That in mind, I think it was important for me to always have the desire to blog and create content. So I think that it was good that I had the experience and now I know that I …

Why focused on my Health? / Vegan

Hello my beautiful readers!
 So this question exists.... Why did I become so interested in health? Well to be fair I always was interested in health. The difference is that I have moved out and get to choose what goes in my mouth now, and where my money goes. No one can tell me that I can’t be vegan. I have always struggled with my weight and have be exercising and eating healthy in hopes to better manage my weight (still early in the journey) and to ultimately feel better. I have found that just from exercising alone you tend to love your body more and see yourself as more attractive. I have not always had a good relationship with food and that is another thing I wanted to change, I always thought wow when I move out I am never going to buy junk food (and I really don’t!). I am going to work to be healthy so in a way its what I have always wanted. When living at home I didn’t really have control over what I ate I got fed and I ate what I was given. I am blessed that my mother always coo…

Why Veganism

Why veganism you ask?
It really comes down to three things: It is better for my body, the environment and the animals. I could spend my entire day writing this so I will keep it short and then share some good sources to learn more from at the end.
We dont need it? Animal products for many reasons are not meant to be consumed by the body. The biology of a human body is made up to be a herbivore from our jaw to the length of our intestine or even the PH level of our bodies makes it clear we aren’t omnivores but actually in the herbivore range. When it comes to the environmental aspects animal agriculture definitely has one of the leading negative impacts, a billion animals are killed a week, what happens to the fecal matter you ask? Often its just dumped into rivers. Animal agriculture contributes to land and water degradation, biodiversity loss, acid rain, coral reef degeneration and deforestation. Livestock farming contributes to 18% of human produced greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.

My go to Oatmeal recipe
This lately is my favourite food (tied with mash potatoes), I literally eat it everyday either for breakfast or later in the day after a smoothie. It satiates me and keeps me full for a long period of time. I love the flavour but I also love that its so versatile and I can mix it up every single day It literally never gets boring and I love it!! That being said I thought I would share with y’all my go to Oats recipe. Enjoy!
Ingredients Serves 2: 2 cups Soy Milk (or any plant based milk) 1 Tbsp Cinnamon 1 tsp Brown Sugar (optional) 1 cup Rolled Oats 3 Tbsp Black Chia Seeds Fruit to top
Method: 1.Put your plant based milk in a pot, on medium heat. Add Cinnamon and Brown Sugar. Mix together. 2.Then add the the Oats and Chia Seeds. Continue to stir so it doesn’t burn. 3.When it is the desired consistency, usually this is when most of the liquid is absorbed and the Oats are soft. 4.Serve into bowls and top with fruit. Enjoy. 





Love you all, Isabelle
