GOOD MORNING MONDAY! ☀️☀️☀️ Lets focus on building our immune systems for week two of #plantoverprocessed!! Anyone else watching the news regarding the coronavirus? 😅 The best defense against any illness including the common cold and skin conditions in my opinion is having a strong immune system. What would you say is one way (share more if you like) to build your immune system? Here are my top 3 immunity strengthening tips I swear by~ Most important- 1. Eat more plants than processed. Whole plant based foods are crammed with vitamins, proteins, minerals, antioxidants and fibers designed to benefit us. Every bite benefits. Its as simple as swapping in oatmeal or fruit for breakfast instead of bagel and cream cheese. An apple instead of a bag of chips for a snack and making your salad dressing! Those small swaps end of making up your entire diet!! Before paying attention to our family diet we were basically eating empty calories in different forms- cereal, toast, bagels for breaky, sandwiches or pasta for lunch, crackers for snacks, bread, pizza or more pasta for dinner, cookies, or cake for dessert! No wonder we got sick all the time! Now, I cant remember the last time we got sick, knock on wood! 2. probiotic. If any of us have the start of a runny nose or start of a cough I make sure I get back on it with a probiotic, and focus on hydrating foods (smoothies, fruits, soups as the majority of their diet) 3. Positive relationship with food. If you do indulge, enjoy it I say!! Because food choices are the one thing we need to make decisions on every single day of our lives… make it a positive one! If we are stressing each time then that will add up! Things to help this postive relationship- take a moment to give thanks for your food! ~Google the benefits of foods your eating to help you learn and be mindful of it! (I use to do this allllll the time and now do it with the kids to help them gain a deeper appreciation for the simple things like a carrot stick haha. Anyway! I cant wait to hear what you do! Hope this is of any help to you! Stay healthy friends! ⚡️🥬🤙🏽

🌱Traveling as a vegan is NOT as hard as you may think. 🙋🏻‍♂️Who agrees? – 👉🏼I’ve traveled many places in the past 5 years and I’ve never had an issue finding vegan food. In fact, some of the places I thought would be the most challenging ended up having some of the best vegan food I’d ever had. This is exactly what happened in Santorini, Greece which is a very small island. I figured that I would be ordering off the side menu, but to my surprise all of the places I ate had several vegan options already on the menu, or they were happy to modify their menu items to be fully vegan. In some places like this one, they even had an entire vegan menu, so you know I had to try a couple different dishes! Oh and sorry to all my hummus lovers out there, but fava beans are so much better. . . #vegan #veganfitness #favabeans #greece #santorini

This week for me it has been all about learning, unlearning, listening, reading, watching and asking myself some pretty uncomfortable questions. The journey doesn’t stop here though. I still have so much to learn, to educate myself on and I definitely know it’s going to be a life long journey/commitment to challenge racism in all areas of my life, not just here in social media. As important as it is to speak out on my grid, it’s as important if not more to make real changes within my real life. Swipe across to see some clips from today’s London Black Lives Matter Protest and to see what I have been reading/watching/listening this week if you want to give them a go. They are all absolutely brilliant and I feel I have learned so much already. And below I am listing other resources which I am haven’t got around to check out yet: Books 📚 Why I no Longer Talk To White People About Race So you want to talk about race Me and White Supremacy How to an Anti Racist Don’t touch my hair Documentaries/Movies 🎥 Dear White People The Hate U Give The Rachel Divide In My Blood it Runs Just Mercy Podcasts🎧 We need to talk about the British Empire — I just want to finish this post with the beautiful words of Ijeoma Oluo which have really stuck with me: “Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself. And it’s the only way forward” ✨ By the way the recipe for these Crushed Potatoes with Cashew Pesto is on my YouTube channel, link in my bio 👆🏻
