Learning self love and body love takes time.. .it definitely doesn't happen over night. It can sometimes feel like a continuous journey, reminding yourself to love yourself, to embrace your so called "flaws" and work on getting better/improving certain traits.

Eating disorders are not a diet, phase or a trend. And you don't have to have a certain weight or size or be super skinny to have an eating disorder.

I feel like i say i don't like a certain food, only to realise that i do infact like it, haha. My tastebuds really do change, but i guess it is about how i prepare it as well.

I am thinking about making this a weekly series - my vegan meal prep! Sometimes i think the food i eat is so simple that it doesn't require a recipe or post, but so many wanted me to write about how i made my meal prep, so i thought why not turn it into a… Continue reading Vegan weekly meal prep!
I hadn't actually planned to post this recipe - because i don't consider it much of a recipe - but as i have had so many people ask and message me about the recipe i thought it would be easier to just make a post about it rather than answer everyone seperatly!!

This week has just flown by.... I feel like i say this for most weeks, but i guess i just haven't felt so "present" in life this week.

The weeks i… Continue reading The week that’s been: Life, YouTube, investments?
I have been meaning to write this post for a while now, but never got around to actually sitting down to share my thoughts. That was until yesterday, when i brought up the topic of having exercise/gymrat/cardiobunny as my identity a few years ago. I became known as the "fitness person" and the runner in… Continue reading Getting stuck in the recovery community – when “recovering” becomes your identity
When you come home after being away for a few days and you haven't gone grocery shopping - then it is the best time to think, "What can i do with the food i have at home?"

When i was working i saw that the store i work at had begun selling the "juicy vegan burgers" by Garant. They are supposed to resemble the beyond meat burger which "bleeds" and is supposedly very similar to meat.

Making burgers is definitely not my fortee. Infact there have been many failed burger attempts which i have not shared.... they just never seem to workout for me.

Rice pudding is one of those snacks/meals which i love, but never eat or make often enough.

If your period has been… Continue reading How to get your period back

Tuesday morning… Continue reading The week that’s been – hospital appointments, back to school and life update

A while ago i attempted to make orange chicken with home made seitan. And the recipe didn't really turn out as expected... i guess that's what happens when you use orange juice from concentrate and not a real orange, but also use a little too much ginger. Safe to say it wasn't really a recipe… Continue reading Vegan orange “chicken” seitan | Recipe
One of my favourite meals during winter and autumn is different lentil stews and daahls. If you look back to autumn/winter 2017 you will see a bunch of different lentil daahls.

At the end of high… Continue reading Moving city to study | Life change the past 2 years & 8 tips for moving to another city
When tortilla bread is being sold for half the price, i made a spontaneous decision to buy it... not knowing what i would use it for. Of course, the typical thing is to make tacos....

One of those "accidently vegan" foods is puff pastry. Most often it is vegan because it is cheaper for the factories to use margarine instead of butter. So the more expensive puff pastries usually contain butter and aren't vegan. When i was younger i used to eat different puff pastry snacks/foods which i liked, though… Continue reading Spinach, sundried tomato and olive puff pastry | Vegan recipe
