~sleepy Thursday bored-at-work selfie~

• I am so excited that it’s a long weekend, although I’ll still be up before 6am tomorrow to go to the dawn service with my fam - worth it though! And after the service I think I’ll go for a nice long morning walk.

• I have lots of things I need to do this weekend but mostly I want to have a nice relaxing few days at home catching up on some rest and getting myself organized for Europe.

• Speaking of, 11 DAYS TIL I LEAVE! Holy moly where is the time going, I feel so disorganized.

• I’ve been changing up the way I’ve been eating a bit, in an attempt to break some of the rules I’ve inadvertently and slightly obsessively started to follow. Simple things such as having crumpets w my green juice for breakfast instead of just fruit, cooked lunches etc. Nothing major, and I’m still eating very healthily, but it feels good to remind myself that I’m in control and ultimately I can eat whatever I want and am not bound by rules. It’s very freeing.

starting the day off right with a nourishing green smoothie {three frozen bananas, medjool date, cucumber, baby spinach, cinnamon + 500mL water} 🌿

1/4 of a super juicy watermelon for morning tea 🍉 #gofruityoself

strawberry coconut nana ice cream w #lovingearth caramelized buckinis and pepitas 🍓

this juice is ridiculously good - fresh pressed apple + rhubarb getting me through a lonnngg shift at work 🍏

So I tried the 801010 life style and I love it but I just don't think it's right for me at this time. I would like to stay a vegan, can you give me some tips? Like do I continue to eat 2500 and up what are your feelings on continuing to be low fat and things like that!? Love your blog! xx

Hey there! You can definitely still be vegan and not follow 801010, I don’t! You just need to find out what works for you and your body. Everyone is different; some people thrive off 801010/raw vegan/high fat/high carb/cooked foods etc etc. There are no rules! Don’t feel like you need to do the latest ‘trendy’ way of eating.

Definitely keep eating at least 2500 calories, especially if you’re active or still growing! But again, this depends entirely on an individuals own energy needs and expenditure.

Make sure you’re keeping variety in your diet. Eat a wide range of whole foods (fruit, veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes, wholegrains), play around with different macros, try new foods and recipes, experiment! If you want to keep eating low fat that’s completely up to you! If that’s what makes you feel best then go for it. Just make sure you’re consuming enough food and are getting all your essential nutrients.

Good luck! And good job on sticking to veganism! Your body and the earth will thank you for it :)

hey just wanted to leave you some traveling advice. Try and plan everything you're doing or else you're going to be walking around looking for this or that. If you can't do that at least plan out where you'll be eating!!! Good luck you'll have a blast

Thank love! I definitely plan to have a good list of things to do in each city/country so I don’t feel like I’m wasting the short amount of time I’ll have there.

And I’ll definitely be googling vegan eateries for everywhere ha!

okay you need to tell me how to make salted carmel ice cream right now O.O

Omg it’s seriously so good.

• frozen bananas (3 or 4)
• two medjool dates
• tbsp peanut butter
• dash vanilla extract
• pinch of Himalayan or natural sea salt

Blend, EAT and know you can die happily now you’ve been to food heaven.

There’s truly nothing cozier than snuggling in on a cold and rainy night with a good book, a warm blanket and a cup of fresh lemon and ginger tea.

Terrible photo but golly this tasted good. Fettuccini w mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, red onion, garlic, baby spinach and thai lemongrass pesto. Comfort food at its finest.
