Clean and Simple Breakfast Cookies

What if I told you you can have cookies for breakfast? Awesome, right?! Well these cookies are nutritious, full of fiber and completely good for you! Waaaaay better for you than store bought cookies that are full of artificial ingredients, preservatives and GMO’s.  Instead they are full of oats, bananas, nuts and seeds… and chocolate, if you would like.

And yes, I eat these cookies for breakfast. And snacks. And dessert. They are guilt free, animal product free, gluten free and 100% good for you!

Veg Eats Day 3/4 + Water Facts

Helloooooo! Happy Monday!

I must admit this is the most excited and energetic I have felt in a while! And it has nothing to do with eating limited animal products. It has to do with the AMAZING community that is forming with the intention of kindness, nourishment and health – it really is fantastic! Today is day 1 for most and there is such a positive buzz happening! PS – It is not too late to join, either! Check out the community here!

Before I get into my eats I wanted to share some disturbing facts about how much water is actually used to produce animal products. It really is mind blowing to see these numbers!

Veg Eats Day 2

Hey guys! Happy Saturday!

So if you missed yesterday’s post I am joining a 30 day Plant Based Diet challenge hosted by BexLife and Danielle Diamond! You can check out the details and video here.

During the next 30 days I will sharing tips, recipes and facts about plant based eating and living, too. There are huge benefits that are directly related to cutting back your animal product consumption; and I am not only talking about your health here. The environment suffers from animal farms as well as the animals themselves. This is a huge topic that I am planning on tackling over the next 30 days.

So on to my eats!

Meat Free + Yoga for 30 Days with BexLife!

Hey friends!

I have a fun post for you today!

So a few days ago I was scrolling through my face book feed and I saw a post by BexLife stating that she was starting a 30 Day Meat Free challenge. I knew this was a challenge I HAD to do! For a while now I have been wanting to get back into eating a primary plant based diet. I used to eat vegan several years ago and I THRIVED on it!

But why did I start incorporating animal products back into my life?

Grocery Haul – 4.14.15

It’s time for another grocery haul post! Trader Joe style, of course! ;)

After I dropped Jordan off at school I wanted to pick a few things up at the store so off I went! Note to self: shop early in the morning more often because there was no one at the store – score for aisle space!

I just took everything out of each bag and plopped it on the counter. I usually try to organize but not this morning – lol

 

grocery 1

 

:Bag one:

Fresh flowers for the house, green bananas (my son LOVES green bananas – he refuses to eat them yellow) organic firm tofu, frozen pineapple, apple sauce squeeze packs, sweet potato fries, assortment of bars, Ezekiel bread, a can of corn and pears

 

grocery 2

:Bag two:

Half dozen organic eggs, cheese tortellini, yogurt, lemons/limes, more bars, cilantro hummus, frozen blueberries, apple juice boxes, parsley, green grapes, zucchini, heirloom tomatoes, fresh mint and strawberries

grocery 3

:Bag three:

Heritage Flake cereal, cheddar cheese, sweet potatoes, yellow bell pepper, avocado, black forest ham, apples, green onions, broccoli, romaine lettuce, fresh basil, carrots and chicken breast

 

So there you have it! I needed to stock up on some fresh produce and I bought extra for recipe testing this week, too!

What is one thing you always pick up at the grocery store? For me it’s apples and Larabars. My go to snack!

XxOo Tasha
