What I Wish I Knew Before Adopting a Plant-Based Diet

What I Wish I Knew Before Adopting a Plant-Based Diet

When I decided to go plant-based, I planned on quitting meat products cold turkey. I am typically really good about maintaining self-control so even if I miss a certain meal, I can refuse to partake and be just fine if it’s what I’ve made up my mind to do. When I actually went plant-based however, there were a few key things I feel that I would have handled differently had I known about them prior to making the switch.

That brings me to this post! If you are planning on eating a plant-based diet or even just thinking about it, this is my little letter to you! It may be able to better prepare you for what is to come and make your transition just a tad bit smoother.

What I Wish2

 

My Appetite Would Increase

In my first week I was constantly snacking on popcorn, chips, grapes and pretty much any vegan snack I could find in the moment. If you don’t feel hungrier than normal in that initial first week, you may feel it pretty soon. Although it won’t seem like it at first, this newfound hunger can be a good thing as long as you are choosing all of the right snacks (something I wasn’t doing at all). Just because a food item says “Vegan” on the label does not automatically make it healthy, so please choose wisely. 

Here are a few healthy snacks that help you to feel fuller:

  • Kale Chips
  • Hummus and Pita Bread
  • Guacamole on Toast (lightly seasoned with black pepper and salt makes this SO delish!)
  • a LARA Bar
  • Smoothies! (I’ve found that adding spinach to the mix makes any smoothie way more filling)
  • Nuts

My Skin Would React

I don’t know if it was because of all of the snacking or diet change in itself, but for the first few weeks I felt like I was 13 again, just constantly waking up to new break-outs. It wasn’t anything major, in fact it was very minor but it was abnormal for me. Especially with the skin care regime I’ve kept up with (which by the way, doesn’t consist of any of the products in the photo above).

It is perfectly normal for the skin to go through a short purge stage when you change your diet, so it is nothing to worry about. Just be sure that you are sticking to a skin care regimen and drinking lots of water to help flush all of the toxins- that your body is already trying to get rid of- out.

I Would Have to Meal Plan

img_6493.jpg

The picture you see up above is of a vegan pizza from one of the VERY FEW vegan restaurants I’ve come to know of in my area. What is my point in placing it here?

It’s rare.

I can’t just order delivery pizza anymore (and i’m not going to lie, I do miss that small little interaction with the pizza delivery people when they give you your pizza…sigh…). I can’t just realize that I’m hungry and wait a few minutes until my microwavable meal is ready. I can’t just be out and about and stop by McDonald’s for a full meal (that ISN’T a salad..). I actually have to account for what my breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be.

Now don’t get me wrong, since I have been vegan I have discovered quick microwaveable meals and have actually ordered vegan food from a few drive-through places (french fries count, right?) and restaurants.  Like I mentioned when talking about the increase in appetite, not everything with “vegan” stamped on it is healthy. I try to stay away from these foods to stay cost effective, but also to keep from becoming dependant on these kinds of preservative-packed meals because honestly, it is so stinking hard not to.

My Advice to Those Considering Going Plant-Based

If you are considering adopting a plant-based diet, first off I want to congratulate you! You are already taking a positive and extremely beneficial step towards a healthier and happier life! That’s pretty noteworthy!

Secondly, please don’t get easily discouraged. I think often times, with any kind of lifestyle adjustment, it is easy for us to become so overwhelmed with having to get used to the change that instead of toughing it out, we end up going back to our “norm”. In order for something to become your new norm however, you have to develop consistency and stick to it. It is only as hard as you make it! You got this!!

Lastly, for all of my fellow picky eaters out there, don’t compare the vegan foods to the meat foods. You will be doing a great disservice to yourself, trust me. For the first few months, you’re going to have to change the way you view eating in that you eat because you have to- not because you want to. Acknowledging that the food you eat may not always meet your expectations is a huge part to sticking to the diet. In my opinion, homemade vegan meals often taste better and fresher, but you may have to mentally prepare yourself for the change in texture and sometimes in taste. If you remember that we eat to nourish our bodies and not to satisfy our palettes than you will be just fine! (:

How to Go From Sleepless to Sleeping Beauty

How to Go From Sleepless to Sleeping Beauty

Once you get your body used to late nights and early mornings, it can be hard to get it on a decent sleep schedule. We are all creatures of habit (yes, even the most spontaneous among us) and we often have to warm up to new routines. It is my hope that this post can be a helpful mini guide for you to refer to for tips and methods on enhancing your sleep schedule. More sleep for you means a brighter, healthier, more energized and productive you and I for one am all about that!

I’m going to try to keep it short and to the point, but no worries I won’t skimp on the good stuff. (; Keep reading for the need-to-know info on making and maintaining a sleep schedule that leaves you feeling rejuvenated in the mornings and fast asleep at night!

How To Go From Sleepless to Sleeping Beauty

Start by Inching Your Way Up the Clock

Getting that internal clock from where it is to where it needs to be is not going to happen overnight or even by tomorrow. The best place to start is by going to bed anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes earlier than you usually do. Consistency is key, so anytime you move up your bed time, try to stick with that bedtime for at least a week. Once that week is up, you can move your bed time up another 15-30 minutes. Keep this up until you’ve hit a time that gives you a healthy 7-9 hours of sleep!

( P.S. On the weekends, stay up no later than an hour passed your bed time. You can’t stray too far from the normal routine if you want to develop healthier sleeping pattern throughout the week. You’ll thank yourself on Monday and well, pretty much everyday after that.)img_7177

Don’t Take Naps (If You MUST, 30 Minutes Max)

Naps are teases. They tell your body “You’re tired, you should get some sleep! It’s only natural.” and then leave you staring at the ceiling all through the night until the morning hours. This isn’t good, and this is NOT the kind of sleep schedule anyone should be on! The more awake you are during the day, the more tired you will be at night!

Get Active

I am not talking about doing the P90X everyday and I’m not even talking about daily thirty minute at-home workouts (although it’s pretty evident both would be extremely effective). Even if it’s right before you lay down at night, just stretching or doing a 5 minute yoga session could drain all of the excess energy you need in order to make you go to sleep. Time your small workout or stretch in accordance with your bed time by planning them an hour or two before it’s actually time for you to be in bed. That way you are SO tired when you hit the bed, you may actually fall asleep the minute you lay down.

Unwind and Relax

I am SUCH a big advocate for morning and night meditations.  I’ve recently started meditating before bed and it always helps me to calm down and eventually soothes me to sleep. If you haven’t tried meditating before bed, I highly recommend it. If you’re not into that sort of thing, there are other methods that work straight from the bed as well! Reading or listening to soft instrumental music before bed helps as well. Doing something melodic and calming every night before bed and I mean every night (consistency is key, remember?) encourages your body to slip into rest mode. If you’re consistent, anytime you do these practices your body will recognize them as cues (almost like turning the lights out before bed) that it’s time to chill, be chill, and go to sleep.img_7187

Limit the Coffee and Caffeinated Drinks After Lunch

Okay, if you’re the type of person that is somehow magically unaffected by the caffeine in coffee; Firstly, I really want to be like you and secondly, you can ignore the coffee part. There is caffeine in more than just coffee though. The closer you get to your bedtime with caffeine in your system, the more likely you are to keep yourself up at night. It can be hard to fight the urge, but if you can hold out you’ll be doing your body a HUGE favor.

Let the Light In

If you have a window in your room, you are one lucky person. Seriously, I miss the mornings in which I could wake up and my bedroom would be illuminated by the ample amount of sunlight peering through my window. Even though the amount of sunlight I get now is nowhere near as bright as it used to be, a habit I’ve started to swear by is opening the blinds the minute I wake-up!

The light opens your eyes a bit and also gives you a little boost of energy so you can actually get yourself out of bed. Because our bodies are wired to fall asleep when it’s dark and to wake up when it’s light, setting the right tone in your room at night and in the mornings plays a huge role in how your body responds to your sleep schedule!

When you take care of yourself, you can take better care of others. Don’t be so comfortable not sleeping enough that you end up sleeping on yourself and on all of the things you are capable of accomplishing!

If you’ve been on a sleep schedule before, what kind of things tend to throw you off schedule? If you haven’t, what kind of things do you feel would throw you off of a sleep schedule?

 

An Easy Way to Find the Perfect Pair of Sunglasses

An Easy Way to Find the Perfect Pair of Sunglasses

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own.  

There is no way on earth I could justify purchasing a pair of $100 sunglasses straight from the internet without physically checking them out first. I don’t care who the glasses are from or how cute they look in the picture, it is just not going to happen.

Since fall is approaching, I figured it’s the perfect time to search for a chic pair of fall sunglasses and found Warby Parker’s variety to be amazing! Luckily, they offer an at home try-on program which gave me the opportunity to see how the glasses I liked would look and feel on me!

How Does It Work?

DPP_62

All you do is pick out 5 pairs of sunglasses you’re interested in trying. If you’re like me, and have a hard time determining what would look good on your face based strictly off of a picture, you can take their frames quiz to get their recommendations. I did heed a few of their personal picks for me based off of my quiz answers, but I decided to try other pairs that I thought looked pretty cool as well!

IMG_0564

After you pick out your five, you put in your credit card info (a precautionary. You’re not charged a single cent!) and your address. Once completed, you’re sent an email saying that the glasses are on their way! You are given 5 days to try them out, post on social media to see what your friends think (and if you use the hashtag #WarbyHomeTryOn, the Warby Parker team can comment and tell you which pair they think looks best on you too), and just get a feel for them. Then, on the 5th day you send them right back for free.

My 5 Picks!

IMG_0338After I ordered my sunglasses, it took exactly a week for them to show up at my doorstep and I was super excited when they did! Here are the shades I decided to try (click on the titles to get the prices!):

Madison in Whiskey Tortoise 

 

IMG_0400The first thing I looked at with every pair of these glasses was the quality. I thought for sure I would get at least one with a loose hinge or scratches on the glasses, after all they were sent to me for free. Other than one whose screw seemed a little too tight, they seemed very durable and all were in perfect condition.

Thatcher in Jet Black Matte

 

DPP_204These glasses in particular actually made me think that I might have an issue choosing a favorite… Thatcher was one of the ones I chose to just experiment with and I actually really liked it! It doesn’t fit the bill for “fall shades” but I could totally see them being a perfect go-to pair in the winter time!

 Jennings in Beach Glass

 

DPP_53Jennings, like the rest of the sunglasses, is sold in other colors. One color is “Beach Glass” and the other color is “Whiskey Tortoise” which is the color pattern you see on Madison. I chose “Beach Glass” because the color struck me as a little different and interesting. Sure enough, the color is pretty much my favorite thing about them! Not to mention the fact that they’re perfect for any occasion both casual and formal.

Laurel in Oak Barrel

DPP_34

 

The lenses for these, like Madison, are dark brown. The frame is similar to Madison’s as well but a little less dramatic around the brow line. They are gorgeous and unique all their own.

Sheridan in Polished Gold 

 

DPP_0009DPP_4Can you tell I had way too much fun trying these out?? Sheridan was actually my favorite pair. I love the 70’s-ish look about them and I found they fit me perfectly! Once the 5 days was up, all I had to do was put them back in the box, slap the return label on it, and drop it off at the post office. Overall, the process was fairly simple, fun, FREE, and ultimately gave me the surety I needed to purchase one that would fit me!

Have you ever owned a pair of Warby Parker sunglasses? If not, which pair pictured here do you like the most?

19 Life Lessons I Learned at 19

19 Life Lessons I Learned at 19

August 8th was the first day of an entirely new decade in my life. The big 2 0. Twenty years old! That’s T W E N T Y years old! It seems unreal and almost like the end of an era. 19 was that awkward in-between year, kind of like 9, 12 or 17; the ages that come right before the more “monumental” ages (according to society and cultural norms that is).  In all actuality,  every age is “monumental” in its own right. Each age comes with its own challenges and in those, its own lessons! These are the ones I learned at 19:

Candid Birthday Photo (Ninas) 1. You can either let the day run you, or you can run the day.

2. It isn’t who you are that holds you back, but who you think you’re not.

3. Happiness isn’t measured according to your circumstance, but by your attitude towards your circumstance.

4. You are your own worst enemy.

5. Blessings can be disguised as burdens.

6. It is better to choose significance over prominence.

7. Comparison is the thief of contentment.

8. Say what you mean, and live what you say. Otherwise, say nothing.

9. If it sounds too good to be true, it isn’t. 😛

10. The longer you spend doing the wrong thing, the longer it’ll take to get to the right thing.

11. No one can be better at being you, than you.

12. There is only one ultimate truth, but two ways to learn it; Experience or Listening

13. It’s okay to not have it all together all of the time!

 14. Growth is inevitable.

15. It’s the little things in life that matter (:

16. Sometimes, you get into periods in life in which you can’t be understood by others.

17. Old habits get increasingly harder to discontinue the older you get -.-

18. When you don’t have anyone to look up to, it might be because you’re that person for someone else.

19. For something that can be so hard to do, letting go is so freeing!

 Learned something in your 19th year that you didn’t see here? Please share your piece of wisdom with others below! 

Learning to Be Alone

Learning to Be Alone

Cool Down (2)

Often times life throws us curve balls. We can be skipping along one path holding the hand of a dearly loved friend or group of friends and all of a sudden find that we are at a fork in the road. To make matters worse, the road directly ahead of you is only wide enough for one person to walk on… which means that you have to walk alone.

The word that so many seem to be afraid of: Alone. Meaning no one but you. Party of one.

It can be a scary concept to grasp, especially if you genuinely love the company of other people. After all, it’s nice to have people to share life with. Part of being human is having that God-given craving for connection and community with other people. I’d be lying if I told you that being alone is the best thing in the entire world because, well, it just isn’t. Some of the most priceless moments we get to experience in life are those shared with others. Don’t get me wrong, there are times when being alone is enjoyable but it is when God unexpectedly changes your plans so that you are alone with Him that loneliness starts to seem like the chore you really dread doing.

I say chore because during that time, you truly are at work.

You’re doing you, learning all about your capabilities, your weaknesses, and building upon your strengths. But I want to share a secret with you: You’re not the only one doing the work.

God is working too, and a lot harder than you. He is actually handling the biggest task: Molding you to be ready for the next big thing.

Think of God as the coach and you as the boxer. You may have won your last match, but now you will be fighting someone with even MORE skill, even MORE tact, even MORE energy, and even MORE speed. You just won’t be ready for that right away and you certainly won’t be ready for it playing tag team with your buddies.

You have to test your own will power by training for the next big thing alone.

That means you have to master the training you are going through, the training God is carefully and tactfully assigning you to, before you are ready to fight the next battle. So please, don’t squander the time you have!

I want to encourage you to use this time of loneliness to the best of your ability by letting God prepare you for your next big thing in giving you time to grow stronger and wiser. Get on your knees and actively pursue Him in prayer so you can hear His voice clearly as he guides you during this time. When your human desire for connection and community arises, take that to the Coach(; He knows when you need the refreshment only Jesus can provide.

I’ve listed a few bible verses below that I’m hoping will help you along in this season of your life. I suggest writing the ones that speak to you down and keeping them handy. That way if you ever feel your thoughts begin to down spiral into a pool self-pity, you can refer to one of these for a boost of hope, confidence, and surety.

but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life. 

-John 4:14

For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. 

-Jeremiah 29:11-13

But if we hope for what we do not yet see, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how we ought to pray, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans too deep for words. 

-Romans 8:26 

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

-Isaiah 41:10

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you 

-1 Peter 5:7 

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds 

-Psalm 147:3 

For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. 

-Isaiah 41:13 

The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed

-Deuteronomy 31:8 

 

If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.

-John 14:3 

Use this time wisely friend. You are being strengthened, refined, and perfected as you even sit here reading this post! Make the most out of the time you have now, and surely you will find yourself expressing gratitude for every moment God worked on making you fit for the next stage.

 

 

July Goals

July Goals

Happy July!

Can you believe we are more than halfway through the year already? The official first day of summer has come and gone and we are now seeing the manifestation of all the things we were excited for about summer! Say hello to vacations, pool side parties, and beach trips! Have you guys done any of these so far?

I am slowly inching my way through the typical summer rituals. I have only been to the pool once and haven’t really participated in any other summer activity yet. I am hoping that changes this month. *fingers crossed*

June’s Goals:

  • Get at least 700 total blog views for the month of June  (I capped my monthly views at 1,064!)
  • Complete 2 books
  • Workout a total of 10 times ( 8/10 workouts completed)
  • Complete June’s Content Calendar
  • Come Up with a Budgeting Plan

Blog Views & The Content Calendar

I have been debating continuing the content calendar for a while. I was really worried that not posting would jeopardize my 700 blog views goal but the fact that I was able to not only accomplish it, but EXCEED it proved a very important saying: Quality over Quantity.  July will be a bit of a trial month for me in that I will be putting the content calendar away and focusing on bringing my a-game in the quality area.

The Two Books I Read…

The two books I read in June were Copper Sun by Sharon M. Draper and How Full Is Your Bucket? by Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton. Both were excellent reads!

Copper Sun was about a fictional historical account of slavery in the 1800’s from the perspectives of two young teenage girls, one being an indentured servant and the other being a slave. It wasn’t so much eye-opening as it was kind of a hard tale of what the realities were of the young women and men who endured days in those positions.

How Full Is Your Bucket? was about a theory called “The Dipper and The Bucket”. The theory states that everyone has a bucket and a dipper. Throughout every interaction with another person we are either adding to someone else’s bucket or taking from their bucket. When a bucket is full, positive interactions and vibes are high! When a bucket is being added to, this resembles the giving of one person to another in a positive way. When a bucket is empty or being dipped from, this resembles negative and draining interactions. Overall, it was a very enlightening book on how to best ensure that your daily interactions are positive for you as well as spreading positivity to others.

Workout Progress

Although I didn’t complete all 10 workouts, I came pretty close and with that I am pretty satisfied! I did two workouts every week, which is better than May’s sad number of 1 or 2 workouts out of the entire month.

Budgeting Plan

You would think I had a sense of urgency with this one… after all I did set a time frame in which to complete it. However, I am not a major spender. I never have been! I’ve always been a big saver. I hate to admit it, but I relaxed on this more than I should have. Regardless of if I am a big spender or not, it is important to have a monetary game plan.

On to July’s Goals

  • Get 1,110 blog views in July
  • Complete 2 Books
  • Complete a 30 Day Devotional
  • Workout 10x
  • Make that Budget Plan!

If you made monthly goals or even just yearly goals, how have you progressed in them so far?

  1. Despite what it often looks like, my hair is dark brown. Not black. 😛
  2. I am mixed! Puerto Rican & African-American.
  3. I have a slight coffee addiction… only a slight one.. ^.^
  4. If I could sing all day, I would. I love it. But you’ll never get me to do it in front of you because I fear being too loud. >.<
  5. I barely watch television shows anymore because I get too bored to keep up with them.

  10. I love big dogs!
  11. I was born with a cleft palate, so I don’t have a uvula.

Questions by Davis:

  1. What is your ultimate guilty pleasure?  The combination of coffee and chocolate.
  2. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be, why?  Paris, France. I’ve always wanted to have a five-star experience in Paris. Have a nice hotel with a terrace that looks out at the Eiffel tower. Get to eat fine french cuisine, sip latte’s, write, think, and just enjoy the scenery.
  3. What’s your most embarrassing story?  When I was in the third grade, I wore something similar to this: skirt with leggings to gym class. Well… that day the gym teacher decided to have all 80 something third grade students in the gym line up in 4 lines of about 20 students each (I am doing my best estimating here… this was forever ago!) facing him. One by one, boy and girl filed in their lines and I found myself in the middle of mine. The gym teacher asked that everyone sit down kriss cross, so we did. After his brief speech about what we were about to do, he asked everyone to stand up. Without knowing I had stepped on my skirt, I sprouted upwards to stand up and my skirt/leggings came right on down. Luckily, I felt the uncomfortable breeze pretty quickly so I hurriedly pulled up my skirt/leggings just after the boy behind me blew an awkward whistle…. That was the last time I wore that skirt/legging to school.
  4. If you were to start a secondary blog, what would it be about? It would probably be about blogging.
  5. Have you ever had your writing published, aside from your own blog? Indeed, I have! My first published piece was an article I wrote for a local newspaper I was a contributing writer for.
  6. Which animal do you most identify with and why? So I actually decided to take an online test for this one and I got a cat… which is weird because I’m actually a dog person??… hmm….
  7. What is your favourite childhood memory? Growing up, my family took road trips at least every other summer to visit other family members. I’d say those road trips, as uncomfortable as they were sometimes, were definitely the creme de la creme of my childhood.
  8. What do you find to be the most annoying thing associated with blogging? I think, for me, the most annoying thing associated with blogging is finding time to take pictures. For every one photo I post on this blog, there are 100 more that I have stashed away of the same exact thing. Some are from different angles and viewpoints but all were taken to find that perfect shot! Photography definitely requires well-planned time and it can be stressful to try to conduct a photo shoot when you don’t have a lot of time.
  9. Is there anything you’d go back and do differently with your blogging journey? If I could go back, I would definitely relax my blind urgency to start the blog. I think if I would have done more research on blogging, I would have had a clearer direction as to what to do from the start rather than figuring all of that out later.
  10. If you’d have been born in any other time, which would you choose for yourself? To be honest… I really don’t think there is any other time I’d want to be born in.
  11. With the knowledge and experience you have now, what one thing would you go back and tell yourself as a child?  I would tell myself that every mistake I make has already been made by countless others before me, and even alongside me. No one is perfect.
