Anonymous asked: Hello pretty lady! I just have a question. What kind of juicer do you have and do you love/hate it? Do you have a specific place you go to for delicious, nutritious recipes? :)
I have a Hurom Masticating Slow Juicer. I love it! I don’t know of a juicing recipe site but I bet you could easily find some great recipes online! I just juice what I have around. I always like to throw a citrus (lime or lemon) for some acid lift and usually some ginger for a little spice. One yummy recipe is pineapple, green apple, spinach, mint and lime. That one’s just DELICIOUS. My go-to is cucumber, apple, kale, ginger, lemon. Beets are also very fun to juice and make the juice a pretty red color. Mangoes are delicious and give the juice a smoothie-like consistency. My sister told me last night she juiced a salad that was about to go bad (that had pepper on it!) and it was palatable. So really, anything goes!
Anonymous asked: In the past 2 days, I have gone through all 233 pages of your blog. I could not help myself! So glad I found it! I have recently become a vegetarian & your posts are so so so inspiring. Last night I watched both Food Inc. & Food Matters (thanks to your past posts!) My question: Do you take a b12 vitamin? That is one thing I am a little worried about. If so, what brand? Thanks in advance and keep doing what you are doing. You are an incredible inspiration and have so much beauty in your life. xx
Wow! Thanks for the message. I take a hefty multivitamin, but I don’t take B12 by itself. I’m eating just vegetarian now, not vegan, though. If you eat full vegan, it is highly recommended by drs and vegan health websites to take a B12. I would talk to your dr if I was you, just to be sure! Also I know that lots of brands of vegan milk, like almond, hemp and coconut, are fortified with B12 too, so you could be on the lookout for that. Good luck eating healthier and giving you, animals and the Earth a better life! 😘
Anonymous asked: Ugh. Why do you have to be so perfect? It's not fair. You're gorgeous and amazing and I'm just a potato. Uuuuuuuugh.
I’m not perfect. I’m over-bearing and opinionated, unorganized and easily overwhelmed. I like being the center of attention (social to a fault). I have spider veins and cellulite and a weird belly button, and I never shave my legs. Nobody’s perfect, no body is perfect. There is attractiveness, a very alluring attractiveness, in flaws and quirks and imperfections. There is beauty in being comfortable in your own skin, in knowing and accepting yourself and being vulnerable and comfortable enough to let people in. There’s beauty in being kind and open-minded. But there’s beauty in being shy and potato-like (whatever that means) too. There’s beauty in being creative, if that’s what calls to you. But there’s beauty in practicality too. Mostly just finding things that make you happy, bring you joy and make you comfortable—hone in on those things—and people will feel your happy, joyful, positive energy and appreciate it. They’ll appreciate you for being you. There’s beauty in you.
Anonymous asked: I heard you have quite a lot of siblings. Are you the oldest?
I’m 6/7, one of the youngest. My mom and dad had 7 kids within 13 years. Pretty stupid. Haha. Just kidding. But, seriously. I love having a big family more than anything but having my own kids now, I do not understand how (or why) they did that!
