Easy Eggless Vegan Breakfast Tacos

Easy Eggless Vegan Breakfast Tacos

I always have trouble deciding what to have for breakfast. Before I was vegan it was easy for me to whip up some eggs and call it a morning. But since I don’t eat eggs anymore it’s been harder for me to think of different […]

The Importance of Thrifting: February Recap

The Importance of Thrifting: February Recap

February is the shortest month of the year but I just felt like the days were way too long. Or is it just me? I don’t know, I was not feeling this month at all. Valentine’s day was just like any other day to me, maybe because the eclipse had me stressing out? I am trying to be consistent with my blog and youtube channel. But it’s becoming more of a drag than a hobby, you know? Eww, I am just complaining! I got to stop! Setting all negative and February as a whole, aside, permanently. Other than the negative feelings and extensive cleansing I went thrifting almost every weekend. Visiting different thrift stores and going to flea markets.

I have grown a passion for thrifting lately. A couple years ago you would never catch me shopping for used clothes, never! I am being honest, very dramatic, I know. As I grow older I am more conscious of the impact that fast fashion creates. Think about it, if you purchase clothes from a thrift store, yard sale or a reseller app; you are essentially recycling. Like how you recycle paper to save trees, you know. But yeah, I have been thrifting a lot! I’ve gone with my boyfriend and siblings which makes it even more entertaining.

Now that we are in the fabulous month of March we are getting closer to Spring. Since I am a Spring baby this makes me happy. You know what else makes me happy? This trip I am about to take with some of my girlfriends. We are going to Mexico! Which means endless conversations in Spanish (yes!) and a ton of Instagram worthy spots! But I am worried about the limited of vegan food that will be available for me (insert stressed emoji here). So I am planning to take vegan snacks to help with my hunger. Other than that 2018 has been treating me very well.

Vitamins I take as a Vegan

Vitamins I take as a Vegan

Take your vitamins! Is a haunting phrase that I remember as a young kid trying to dodge my mom while I had breakfast. As an adult, I continue to take vitamins and now accept them because I know that they do good things to my body. If you are becoming vegan or vegetarian you might have wondered if you should be taking vitamins or not. This question is debatable, some think that you should, while others think it’s pointless. You probably didn’t even take vitamins as a meat eater, why start now? Many think that way, which makes this topic a controversial one in the vegan/vegetarian community. (more…)

Vegan Tacos Al Pastor Recipe

Vegan Tacos Al Pastor Recipe

I must confess before I became vegetarian a year and a half ago I did think about what foods I was going to miss. That thought convinced me to think about the pros and cons of leaving meat as a whole. Did I really want to be sitting in a room full of people eating my favorite dishes? In order for me to hush that thought, I had to think of alternative ways where I can recreate these dishes in a more humane way (meatless). The idea of becoming vegetarian was more convincing than continuing my meat-eating life. It was just the stereotypical dishes that people think that vegans/vegetarians eat that scared me. They only eat salads! Looking back and remembering how I felt gives me the giggles. I still continue to eat traditional Mexican dishes as a vegan.
