Over the weekend I gave you guys a chance to submit questions to me so I could answer them here. I said they could be in regards to any beauty topics. Surprisingly, I did not receive one question about beauty lol. They were all in regards to my diet. People asked me what is it that I eat if I do not eat meat, how do I get nutrients, etc.
Let me be the first to break the news to you: your body does not need meat to survive. If that’s the case then all the vegetarians and vegans would’ve dropped dead by now. Meat does not equal protein. Protein exist in everything. And it’s not healthy for your body to have too much protein. An overdose of protein can lead to brittle hair, bones, and dehydration.
My diet is based on what I like (and what’s on sale at the supermarket). It is important to me to experiment with food to make it more fun and to be sure that I’m not eating the same things all the time. I love pasta and mexican food so I love to include lots of different spicy sauces in my meals. I also love love love potatoes so I usually incorporate them into my meals as much as possible. They help to fill me up and make me happy 🙂
Whether you are looking to transition into a plant based diet or not, I highly recommend picking up some Spirulina Powder. Spirulina is a fresh water blue-green algae plant that has amazing benefits for the body which include detoxing heavy metals, improving blood pressure, providing the body with energy, and helping with weight loss. Also (drum roll) it gives the body protein!
Here are a few shots of some foods I’ve prepared. I’ve experimented with many things however these are the only pictures I’ve saved. If you have any questions about the recipes feel free to comment or reach out!
