Where do I get my protein? | Vegan

I swear, the one question that family members and concerned friends alike tend to ask me is, "Where do you get your protein?"

Many people assume that since I am vegan, I am not receiving the right nutrients I need to have a strong body. I practice yoga daily and hope to keep getting stronger, so getting the right amount of protein is important to me. I tend to eat 3 meals a day, and I try to incorporate a product with adequate protein in each. 

For example:
-For breakfast, I will add oats and hemp seeds to my banana berry smoothies.
-For lunch, I'll either have a bagel and some soup, a veggie wrap, or a peanut butter sandwich. (I know so random).
-For dinner, I like tacos so I use black beans and a pea protein substitute for meat, or I like to make something fun like tofu teriyaki and rice!

Throughout the day I will also snack on some carrots and hummus, some trail mix, or some peanut butter toast!

Anyways, I hope this has all of you convinced that I am fine and healthy :)

It's so easy to be vegan! Watch my favorite documentary, Vegucated, on Netflix or on YouTube to learn more about why being vegan saves the world!

Favorite Summer Products | Cruelty Free

This summer, I have been loving all the fruity products that I can get my hands on! From all natural face masks, to cruelty free hair products, I have been so in love with all the new items I have been trying!
I have heard so much about Korean skincare, and how revolutionary that it can be for your skin, so I did some research and found Frudia! Frudia is a Korean skincare company whose products are filled with natural fruit juices and extracts, giving you the essential nutrients you need without all the chemicals!
I picked up the Green Grape Pore Control Mask, at my local Ulta, and it is super hydrating while also tightening pores!
I also met with the founder of MopTop Hair while at the Natural Food and Product Expo West this past year. She was so sweet and sent me home with a few samples and I was automatically obsessed with not only the delicious smell of the products, but the way it made my hair feel!
The Mongongo Oil smells amazing and hydrates your hair without making you feel greas…

SoulCycle

This morning, my friend and I woke up for the 8:30am spin class at the new SoulCycle studio in Walnut Creek!
I have always wanted to try SoulCycle, and had a few free passes given to me during the promotion for their grand opening, so I figured I might as well go soon!
So, my friend and I walk in and immediately we were in awe of how sleek, clean, and bright everything was! It was like walking into the studio of your dreams!  We filled out all of our paperwork, tried on some clip-in shoes (they cost $3 to rent), and headed to the lockers to get ready before class.
The studio was so welcoming and had everything from hairbands to deodorant to back you up in case you forgot anything!
Now, about the class.
At first, I was extremely intimidated. There are so many bikes and it seemed like everyone was a regular, so I felt a little anxious, but just wanted to see what all the hype was about!
The second the class starts, you're nonstop moving.  I felt like I was going to die the first 10…

Winter Essentials!

I love winter.
I love the rain, the candles, the hot cocoa, Christmas shopping & everything in between!
One thing I'm definitely obsessed with right now is plaid!



I found this adorable plaid craft paper at Michaels Stores, and this perfect plaid hair scrunchie from Goody Hair!

Some of my other favorite goodies are the Jolly Gloss by Kylie Cosmetics, and the winter eyeshadow kit from Chanel Makeup!

I've also included in the photo, a candle that smells like delicious ripes apples, and a gorgeously wrapped bar of soap that I've received as a gift :)

What are some of your winter favs?

Happy Holidays!
