    Colorful Winter Chili (Vegan)

    In the warmer months, my diet is made up of tons of fruit. However, now that it is absolutely freezing; I crave warm foods like pasta, chili, and baked potatoes. I have posted a vegan chili recipe before, but this one is a little different. As the title suggests, it is colorful. It also has spices that are better in the colder months. This recipe is packed with protein and with spices that promote immune functioning.

    You’ll Never Have A Boyfriend Because…

    Can we just stop? Can we stop constantly asking women if they have a boyfriend? Can we stop putting so much value on a person’s relationship status. I am not against relationships and I am not against people who take pride in their relationship. I am simply tired of “well-meaning” strangers asking me why I don’t have a boyfriend. Like you just met me and the only thing you want to know about me is if I am seeing someone. You don’t want to know what I am passionate about or what I am studying or even what my job is. I get the feeling that to some people, my…

    Law of Attraction Update

    The law of attraction is a new(ish) philosophy that basically means that your thoughts and perceptions attract certain energies into your life. I’m not going to get into a complex discussion of vibrations. But I think we can all agree that mindset dictates a lot of our lives. Living in a positive way, attracts more positive energy.

To start out with, I believe that the universe is magical and knows what you truly want/need and when you realize that, that is when you can attract good energy (previous manifestation post at…

    Thank You Once Again!

    My heart is full of gratitude. I’ve reached another milestone with my blog. I now have over 400 followers. It’s not so much about the number, I’m just happy that my content is meaningful and spreading. As you might have noticed, I don’t post just to post. I post when I am inspired or have something valuable to say. Because of this I go through periods of time when I only post occasionally and then I go through times when I post very frequently. Nonetheless, many have stayed with me and continue to support my content. Despite my inconsistent posting schedule, lately I have been taking my blog more seriously.…
