People often ask me whether I eat keto. The answer is, sometimes. I don’t adhere to one strict way of eating. It hasn’t worked for me. So some of my meals are keto, some are paleo, some are pegan, some are vegan, and some are vegetarian. What they all have in common is the large amount of vegetables. This is paramount and a non-negotiable for everyone, if you ask me.
So today, I have a vegan burrito bowl on the blog. It is absolutely delicious!!! And you won’t even know there is no meat inside this dish. But you could easily make this with meat if you prefer. Just do you, and always listen to your body.Read More

I have to admit I love Mexican food!!! Unfortunately, good Mexican food is hard to come by in Mississippi. I just have to be honest, y’all. Once a month, I try to get my taco fix at Food Truck Friday in Jackson, because those are the best tacos in the state in my opinion.
But I also cook plenty of dishes at home that are inspired by Mexican cuisine. I recently made this vegan taco filling. If you’re a true fan of Mexican food, you might be rolling your eyes right now, but I encourage you to give these a try. You won’t even know there is no meat in your taco.Read More

Sometimes I forget that not everybody knows how to make a smoothie and that I was also pretty apprehensive about trying it for the first time.
'How do you mean I can just blend up vegetables?' 'How much is a cup of spinach?' and 'What if I do something wrong?' were some of my questions.
Let me ask you something! Do you take care of your car? If you are like most people, you take GREAT care of your car. Why don't we take the same care with ourselves? Why do we keep eating and drinking the same foods that we know aren't good for us?Read More

The truth is, a detox doesn’t have to involve any of the above—and if you detox in a healthy, supportive manner, you can achieve lasting results in weight loss, energy gain and full-body health.Read More
