No-Bake Raw Vegan Cupcakes!
Can you see me?
I know, I’m super camouflaged. Literally obsessed with my new Christmas Sweater. I am so getting my lil sis one too so we can match! I love it!! Have you guys attended an “Ugly Sweater Party” yet this December? They are always so much fun!
Now…I have something very very special for you guys! Look…
Here’s the video if you would like to follow along! My friend Kristina from FullyRawKristina came all the way from Texas to visit me and we got to spend all day together cooking and working out. It was so much fun!
You can get our fun yoga mats here.
Also, I want to address something here because I’ve seen some pretty weird comments on both of our videos. For some reason, people think that because of how differently we eat, we can’t be friends. In fact, I saw someone write that vegans and non-vegans are supposed to be “enemies.” Wow. That is a harsh word. Enemies? Really? Are we really Montagues and Capulets here? Cuz even Romeo & Juliet were able to find love. Others said that if Kristina didn’t “convert me” then what’s the point of us being friends. Once again, is your nutrition a religion or is it a way to nourish your body? I mean, I don’t think I need to repost any more comments, but I hope you are able to see what I see here: close mindedness. It is difficult to inspire change when someone tries to impose their ideaologies on you and talk smack about you when you aren’t doing things their way. When your child does something you don’t like, do you call them stupid and ugly and berate them? No, you teach them. You teach them why. And you do it in an encouraging way so that they can find the fire to change within them. It’s called compassion. Vegan or non-vegan, I will love you for YOU. Atkins, Paleo, Keto – whatever and however you eat – I will still love you for who you are and how you treat me and other people. I don’t judge people who eat fries and burgers and can’t walk up the stairs without taking a break. I see an opportunity to inspire. With that said, I really appreciate plant based food as I find it so creative how you can cook without animal product! (I’ve been integrating vegan and vegetarian food since I was young, so I’m very happy to be learning even more new recipes from friends as I get older!) Though you and I may not be 100% vegan, I do encourage everyone to add more fruits and veggies into their lifestyle. They are full of vitamins, minerals, and are extremely nutritious. Everyone’s body is different – experiment with your food and see where you feel at your best and most energetic! Anyway, here’s me and the lovely Kristina working out together!
