What my shopping cart looks like!
I went shopping this weekend to experiment some vegan recipes in preparation for your Vegan Week beginning May 28th! That’s next Monday! We’re gonna me making lots of yummy things like eggplant bacon, apple sweet potato mash, hummus, zucchini pasta – ahh I can’t wait!! Can you see the excitement in my eyes in this video? I’m like about to POP out of your screen and shake you and ask you to join in for Vegan Week with me!!!!
For those of you that are new, Vegan Week is a personal challenge for me too – just trying to cut out all dairy, meat, fish, poultry, and eggs for 2 weeks. My high animal protein diet that I did for the bikini comp killed my insides so I need to try something new. So far, after testing out recipes for the past few days, my stomach and digestive system have been VERY happy. Also the increase in carbs with the fruits I get to eat makes me sooooooo satisfied. I appreciate fruit and flavor so much.
You are in no way obligated to do the full challenge with me, but I will have a full 2 week meal plan up by the end of the this week. I encourage you to test yourself and try 1 week, 1 day, or 1 meal! Even as an experiment and as an opportunity to push yourself out of your comfort zone. It will be good for your body, mind, and spirit. Afterall, when is a better time to do this? The Blogilates Community will be here to do it with you!
I want you to follow me @Blogilates and also follow @NickyHolender (my celeb trainer friend and vegan advocate) and tweet us pictures of your meals starting May 28. Let’s use the hashtag #veganchallenge.
Ok well off to upload some new activewear pieces to shopblogilates.com! And new TRAIN INSANE colors will be going up too in all sizes! Woot woot!
Bye for now and stay strong and inspired everyone!
Much love, Cassey
