I let my kids do their burger “decorating” tonight and my daughter was so pleased with hers she wanted me to take a picture. 📸 Anyone else notice that when the kids feel proud of their contribution they eat better? 😋 #getmessy#weeganapproved#beetburger
My digestive system has been much happier lately because I’ve reduced my breakfast food portion size by 1/3-1/2 and added a latte with filling fats, medicinal mushrooms and energizing plant powders. I feel full for longer and much more awake. ⠀
If you’ve been watching my stories lately, you’ll know that I’m drinking our Superfood Matcha everyday (soon to be modified and rebranded into our Matcha Bliss🤫) and adding a teaspoon of reishi. The balanced mental and physical energy from the matcha, maca, cacao and reishi is gentle enough to ease me into the morning, but gives me the kick I need as I am most certainly not a natural morning person. I find this blend also helps with my mood and anxiety management. I drink it after a short yoga session, which is a new addition to my routine this year. There’s about 15-20g of caffeine in a teaspoon of this, so less than 1/4 the amount of a cup of coffee. So I haven’t become reliant on the this every morning. On the days I don’t have time for it, I’m still ok! Btw, those days I don’t have time for it are actually good. Best to take a couple days off of a herb or remedy. Keep you body on its toes. So, what’s your typical breakfast?
Definitely going to have to go back to @nourishdcapetown sometime! Took me forever to visit, so I better make a plan before the year runs away again! Some beautiful vegan options that are absolute winners!
The sun is shining and that means the salads are flying out of the kitchen ✨ Remember we still have our make your own salad menu so you can make the perfect salad with all the things you love 📸 @veginworld
Adding some color to this otherwise gray day by eating the rainbow! Rainbow Quinoa Stirfry: Red bell pepper, carrots, baby corn, bok choy and purple cabbage stir fried with ginger, sesame seeds and garlic plus my favorite sauce: 2 parts sesame oil, 1 part liquid aminos, 1 part coconut sugar and calamansi or lemon juice to taste 🌈 Top with fresh cilantro for your daily dose of antioxidants! 🌱 #eatyourcolors
So I have a HUGE wok that I forgot about!!! I'm starting to use it more and I love it😍😍😍

Most satisfying squat session:
Got 425 lb/193 kg for 2 reps @ RPE 7 followed by the toughest squat session I have had in several months - 420 lb/190.6 kg for 5 sets of 4. Last set shown. But it was extremely satisfying because I added 35 lb to my 5 sets of 4 working weight since Christmas. In fact, I went from not being able to get 5 x 4 @ 385 lb to getting 420 lb for 5 x 4 with good form on all reps. My cues are falling in place and the result - PR squats even on days like today, where I came in with poor sleep and stressful day at work. My legs were super wobbly after second set but still got through.
Bench: 190 lb for 2 x 6 @ RPE 9 Followed by 175 lb for 2 x 6 @ 8. This is the best bench has felt.
I wholeheartedly believe in ::asking:: for what you need.
Someone once told me that a complaint is just a request- either a request for you to accept and modify your perspective around something, or a request to take action to change it.
I love knowing that anytime negative thoughts take hold, I hold the power to shift that energy and transmute it into something positive. Into movement. Movement in my mind and in my life.
What's this got to do with oils? They are my answered call, my lifeline, and my aero-plane....carrying me away towards brighter skies ☀️ There is no complaint they can't help shift. Whether it's a physical ailment, an issue of the heart or a basic utilitarian need, they deliver potent support day in and day out.
What's something you need to boldly and bravely ask for? 🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓
It's #WazooglesWednesday ! These blueberry-cherry Oatbake breakfast cups take sticky, crunchy, chewy goodness to the next level! This is truly a cup of joy!
1 Cup oats
1 cup almond/ soy milk
1/4 cup oat flour
1/4 cup @Wazoogles Vanilla Sky
1/4 cup @mindful_mum_za_ Milk Maker Powder
2 tablespoons flax powder
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1/4 cup avocado oil (or any other substitution)
1/2 cup mix of cherries + blueberries
3/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
3/4 teaspoon Himalayan Course salt
For added yuminess I added @cocoaffair dark chocolate - salted and drizzled that on top
Mix in the dry ingredients together
Mix in the milk, sugar eggs, etc
Combine until mixed
Mixture should look a bit watery.
Bake for about 25 minutes- 40 minutes depending on which size pan (muffin / flat / cake ) and how full. I baked mine in a muffin tray at 25 minutes.
Tonight we improvised using what we had around the house. We roasted sliced red potatoes and sweet potato🍠. Then we warmed up leftover cauliflower and chickpeas mixed with a mustard vinaigrette. Next we did a simple open faced burger. It was on @daveskillerbread with a sun-dried tomato kale-hemp pesto from @ohsheglows cookbook. It’s easier than the name sounds.😉 Then in a pan we cooked mushroom veggie patties along with sliced tomatoes 🍅. Finally we assembled the burger and topped it with avocado🥑.
Finally relearned how to set up for overhead press! 🎉 managed to progress from last week 🌚 huge thanks to @normanyazid (2nd video) cause after that, I managed to do it again on my own (3rd video) and went heavier on the last set (1st video) ((pyramid yo)) . Y'all can ask for a personal training with Norman - super friendly, super experienced in all types of sports (body building, cross fit, powerlifting) and super patient!
Wonder where I will be in 2 months time! . .
Lol I tripped in the first video.. #gymshark66@gymshark#gymshark .
PS: dont bend your leg like I did in the first video unless attempting a PR . But don't make it a habit!
Now I'm struggling with the simple fact that I am Vegan, and like many other Vegans I fight for the equality of all life. Don't trip, im not gonna start eating innocent, defenseless animals. But unfortunately the mass population of all human life on the planet, Vegans included, are not noticing the destruction of the earths atmosphere, and the oceans, and the forest, and all life on this planet. If you are truly concerned about life on this planet, you need to be concerned about weather manipulation, and weather terrorist that cause the destruction of all life on this planet. As a vegan I stand up for all life. Plant or animal! I don't stand up just for animal rights. I don't just stand for human rights. I stand up for the future of this planet. That's the difference between me and most Vegans. It's great that Vegans are standing up for animal rights, I am vegan I stand up for animal rights. But if the planet is dying due to the few controlling the levers that have an agenda to depopulate this earth, it is the duty of ALL Vegans to call them out. So stand up! Begin to realize, and research what's happening in the atmosphere. Don't just realize what's happening to the animals..... because without a healthy planet it doesn't matter what life is here. Once the oceans die we're all going to die. PERIOD 🖖😩 Repost if you are a true ambassador for the health of this planet 🌱✊ And if you don't agree, i still love you..... ask me anything questions that you have.
