    3 Simple Breakfast Ideas // Vegan

    I’m not a morning person at all, but I never miss breakfast. I basically stick to 3 meals that I have on rotation. They each take less than 10 minutes and will truly brighten your morning. My favorite breakfast right now is vegan yogurt with various toppings. You can basically add whatever you want on top. I typically add fruit, granola, and some seeds for healthy fat. If you don’t want to use soy yogurt or coconut yogurt, you can just have cereal and fruit with nuts/seeds. Another favorite of mine is oatmeal. I don’t eat plain oatmeal, because honestly it’s gross.

    An all too common phrase in the Midwest. It’s true, if you want the weather to change, just wait five minutes. But do we have to use this as small talk? I’m not a fan of obligatory conversations. I never know how to respond and most of the time I’m just not in the mood to talk to strangers. However, I can’t help the fact that I am comforted by these monotonous phrases.

    Misconceptions About College

    Raise your hand if you are scared of going away to college. This time in your life can be extremely stressful. You are expected to pick a career path at the young age of 18 and then people tell you to decide where you are going to spend the next 4+ years. It’s a lot to process. I was so worried about college. People put all of these ideas into my head and it freaked me out. I thought that my classes would be unbearable and I had no idea how I was going to make friends. I started college 3 years ago and it has been quite a journey.…

    Healing Hair and Skin With a Vegan Lifestyle

    People come to the vegan lifestyle for many different reasons. I came to this lifestyle for ethical reasons. However, I cannot deny the healing benefits of a plant-based diet. Adopting a vegan lifestyle can aid in the prevention of various diseases, including cancer. I am not saying that it is a “cure-all”. To put it frankly, if you eat crap, you are going to feel like crap. Here is an article about meat consumption and risk of cancer. Anyway, I have noticed that a lot of people are interested in eating more whole plant foods because of the skin and hair care benefits. I can say from personal experience, that a…
