Breaking Through Weight Loss Plateaus

I know a lot of people come to healthy eating, and to a vegan diet, when they're trying to lose weight. If you're overweight, it's so easy to feel unhealthy and feed bad about yourself.

The worst is when you just can't lose the extra weight, not matter how many diets you try or how little you eat. Maybe you started losing weight, but now you're stuck.

I want to give you some tips on how to break through the plateau, and if you are overweight there are some huge benefits to being at a healthy weight.

3 Strategies To Kick Your Cravings Forever!

With all the information and ideals out there about being healthy and eating healthfully, it's easy to get overwhelmed.

When I was first learning about healthy eating, I felt frustrated trying to keep up with all the different versions of 'perfection' that were out there.

It made me feel bad about myself, like I wasn't 'healthy enough' and ultimately like I wasn't good enough...

Delicious chocolate smoothie to help me kick my chocolate addiction

I have a confession to make: I've let myself get stuck in a couple of bad habits lately, and I am really keen to break out of them.

One thing is that I've been eating a bit too much chocolate. It's dark chocolate, quite lovely, and I usually only have a couple of squares, so it's not a huge deal.

But the point is that I'm eating out of habit, not always out of enjoyment.

How To Make Kombucha That Fills You With Effervescence (Video)

I love kombucha. I've talked about why I love it before, but the problem is that it costs a fair bit when you want to drink it five times a day, like I do.

The solution? Brewing my own kombucha!

Now, I've been putting this off for a long time now. Like, a long time. I don't want to admit to you how long I've had a kombucha starter kit in my possession and not gone ahead and made it.


Easter Thoughts On Carob, Brands & Chocolate Tasting

Chocolate tasting setup

My last post on chocolate brought up some questions, so I thought I'd film another video to answer them.

First one was - what about carob? Well, I love carob, but it's a totally different flavor from cocoa. Not everyone likes it, and it's hard to find carob treats to buy so if you can't make your own it's a bit tricky.

I also find that most carob treats are made with hydrogenated palm oils, which aren't the greatest. Personally, I'd rather eat dark chocolate made with cocoa butter.


How Much Chocolate Should I Eat?

How Much Chocolate Should I Eat?

This past weekend, I managed to survive a 3-day obstacle race involving crazy things like climbing over a bus, jumping over a fire pit, running up a hill with a sandbag, crawling under barbed wire and other such things.

I spent Sunday afternoon relaxing and making a mango dragon roll. It was phenomenal! It had banana and avocado inside, and sliced mango on the top, dragon style. I topped it with toasted coconut and drizzled with some dark chocolate melted and spiced with cayenne.

It was so fun to make that I posted a photo on Instagram, and it spurred a question from Collette about how much dark chocolate she should eat. I responded there, but it was such a good question that I wanted to share my thoughts here!
