How to make an easy satisfying healthy meal
Hi guys, I'm here to tell you how to build a satisfying healthy meal in simple steps. When you eat low-fat vegan you don't have to cut back on calories and you should just eat until you are satisfied.
1. Pick 2 or more vegetables (you can use frozen if it's convenient)
2. Pick your starch
I reccomend just putting salt and pepper on your vegetables if your protein is going to be flavorful, or flavor everything the same way. Sometimes mixing flavors doesn't work but just experiment.
My New Years Resolutions/How to be Eco-Friendly.
My new years resolutions and explanations:
1. Be more Eco-Friendly
I'm going to try to be more eco-friendly this year by basically recycling more, reusing more, and using less plastic and avoid using anything I can't recycle. I can recycle plastic grocery bags at my local grocery store but because I have reusable bags I think it's better to reduce. I also am going to start bringing my own cup and utensils to restaurants that I would normally use plastic or paper at. I'm going to try not eating out but sometimes you can't avoid it. I do eat out with my friends every now and then, and I sometimes eat out when I don't have time to pack lunch. I am also going to try using reusable produce bags. I might also make a compost bin to put all the vegetable trash I don't feed Bella. Another way I might be more eco-friendly is buying wood items instead of plastic so they're biodegradable. Here are some materials I am planning on buying or I already own and I'm going to use:
2. Start going to the Gym, exercising more.
I'm planning on going to the gym at least once a week. I want to start going for a walk around the neighborhood with the dog every night, and using my exercise ball. My goal is to lose some weight and gain muscle to be toned.
3. Write on my blog more.
4. Spend less money on stuff I don't need.
5. Get outside more. I feel like I need to start doing more outside, like camping, hiking, swimming, going to parks, etc.
Well that's it! Please tell me what your new years resolutions are in the comments! (Don't use your real email to write a comment if that's what's stopping you.)
Add up your answers as you go down to see what pet you should have! (BTW i haven't ever had a cat so this isn't that accurate)
I want to cuddle with my pet.....
If you got mostly B's: A Hamster! Hamsters are super easy and love to run around for exercise. This is a good beginner pet.
If you got mostly C's: A Dog! Dogs are a big commitment, they love to play, run, and cuddle. DOgs require training as a puppy so are more of an intermediate pet.
If you got mostly D's: A Cat! Cats require training and care but aren't as attention seeking as dogs.
If you got mostly E's: A Fish.... Yeah you don't really want a pet as much as more responsibility and something cute to look at.

Let's have breakfast in bed! Here is an easy vegan recipe for fall
You can serve these delicious pancakes with fruit, coffee, and vegan sausages. Put a nice flower in a small vase on the tray that you surprise your friend with, make yourself a tray as well and sit and eat with him/her. You can also put on some classical music or just watch TV or a movie.
Let's get outside! Here are a few ideas for getting some fresh air.
>Go for a bike ride
>Go for a long walk
>Go find the prettiest leaves, sticks, burrs, and pine cones you can find and make a little ornament for your house.
>Dress up and take some fall pictures.
Let's Go to a Painting class! Normally a painting classes are extremely costly but by doing this method you save tons!
Prep: Get some supplies:
>Paint brushes, or clean sponge pieces.
>Paper or canvases
>Any paint, watercolors can be bought at the dollar-tree, acrylics at Walmart.
>Put on a fall painting tutorial on youtube to follow along.
Follow the video's instructions to create a beautiful piece of art.
Here is an acrylic painting lesson:
Let's Go to the Spa! No Day-cation is complete without a nice relaxing spa after a long day of having fun!
>Cut 2 slices of cucumber.

What I eat as a Vegan
Whenever one of my sisters tells someone I'm vegan randomly (It doesn't even fit with the conversation) The person always says what do you eat? Usually I look at them like "for real?" and then I say I cook lots of stuff but from now on I'll just say look at my blog. Here are some things I eat as a Vegan that are super easy and most of these are very affordable.

Meal plans can help you save money, and time when grocery shopping. You will also waste less food because you know exactly how much you need for the whole week. (click the read more button for detailed instructions)
Everyone loves a good sub sandwich but they can be a little bit pricey. Today I am sharing with you my money saving life hack to having a delicious 6 inch sub sandwich for under 3.00.
I'm not talking about subway today but I am talking about Publix Deli subs. I discovered this hack one day when I wanted a sub sandwich but I didn't want to pay full price for a sub that didn't have any meat on it, (This hack can include meat and still be under 3.00) so I decided to get the salad bar instead when it hit me to buy a hoagie roll (69 cents) from the bakery and put my salad (approx. 2.00 or less depending on how much and what you get.) on the hoagie roll. My sister also did this and she got the fried chicken that was on the salad bar. The salad bar also has pieces of ham if you prefer. I got the banana peppers, bell peppers, lettuce, and they had packets of mustard and mayo in the deli if you want or you can use salad dressing. This hack can be used at any grocery store that has a bakery and a salad bar not just Publix. (We got two drinks and two of these for $7ish.) This is helpful with saving money but has its downsides such as if you wanted sliced tomato or a slice of cheese which isn't on the salad bar.
I just wanted to let you guys know some things I researched because I really want to go on a road trip if I can buy a Volkswagen van sometime in the future.
You need a gym membership at a gym with a lot of locations and you need to plan which ones you're going to while you travel so you don't pass one and not see another one for a week. The reason you need a membership is so you can use their clean showers while you are traveling. This might sound a little weird but if you want to you can wash your container and utensils with the water there if you either want to take them inside with you or just bring a gallon of water back which sounds funny but if you have a better idea tell me in the comments. You can also use the gym's pool if they have one, you can use their water fountains if they have them, and you can exercise too.
You don't want to drain the battery of your can so you need to find power elsewhere. You can charge your electronics using a battery if you know how to set that up. You can also charge them at restaurants or delis that have outlets. If your gym has an outlet you can also use that. Probably the best thing would be to figure out how to get a battery in your van and plug stuff in obviously I don't know how. Some people also use solar power but that can be very expensive.
You either need to save as much money as you need before you leave or you need to have jobs set up at your stops. There are farms you can work at that will give you free food, you can work online, or find temporary jobs at different stops. To save money on gas you can't have the A/C running all night so you'll have to go on this road trip in a cooler season or bring a fan that you can plug into your battery or bring a battery powered fan. If you go in winter you'll have to have a very warm blanket and warm PJs or use your heater depending on how cold it is.
You will need:
A good pair of walking shoes
A bucket for dish washing
a container and utensils
A warm bed set
A smart phone with a GPS
A battery (mentioned earlier)
Curtains on your van windows
Deodorant, Body wash, etc
A gallon jug
Pepper Spray (just in case)
So I've been looking into Volkswagen vans which are so cute and they're perfect for road trips. Some people actaually live in them too. What you do is have a bed in the back instead of a back seat and you basically camp in there while you travel so you're not paying anything for hotels.
What about food?
)yoIts probably not a good idea to eat out every single meal every single day while you travel because it will be very expensive or very unhealthy or both. What you should do is buy your food in bulk and make sure it's non-perishable unless you can keep it in a cooler for a day or two and eat it all. Some foods I recommend are: (🌱=healthier)
•instant noodles (you can ask for a cup of hot water from a fast food restaurant and pour it in your cup)
•Bananas, oranges, mangoes, kiwi, peaches, nectarines, avocados, and any other fruit you don't need to keep cold. (no need to refrigerate and perfectly healthy.) 🌱
•Sandwiches (you can have a peanut butter sandwich or a tomato and avocado sandwich🌱 (just make sure to eat your tomato soon after you slice it and keep it in a cooler.) and you can also have a peanut butter banana sandwich🌱. Also a tuna fish sandwich would work if you use mayo packets.)
•Protein shakes (you can either buy a small bottle of milk each time you want one or use water) 🌱
•instant Oatmeal (just find a gas station with a microwave then make as normal)🌱
•You can even buy dehydrated meals and just add hot water, I've tried stroganoff before it's not bad.
•Canned goods (again just heat up at a gas station)
You should definitely bring yourself a container to be a bowl/plate and utensils. You don't want to eat out of a can.
