Snacks Snacks and More Snacks!

It seems like I eat a lot of snacks 🙂  I have to make sure throughout the day that I am getting enough calories.  So between meals I have little fruit salads, or veggie platters, or hummus plates.   I’m wondering how everyone else makes sure they get enough calories and what kind of snacks they eat?

Day 10

Vegan life day 10! Here’s the status:

  • I know I want to be healthy. IMG_20150109_174203
  • I know I want to be happy.

I have found an inspiring community of instagrammers and bloggers to reach out to for ideas and motivation.  As you saw in my Instagram post, I have been posting pictures of my own food.  Taking photos of the food forces me to put more love and energy into preparing my vegan meals.

Look at this long list of things I have eaten in the past 10 days! It’s AMAZING how being vegan has forced me to add all this goodness to my life.  I can’t believe all that I have eaten!!

I lisIMG_20150111_180731ted everything out to show what a variety of fruits, vegetables, and vegan options there are.  This is not a starvation lifestyle by any means.  I have been completely satiated every day, except for day 6, when I stayed up later than usual watching movies and ate Cheese-Its (NOT VEGAN!!).  But you know what?  I am not going to let that get me down.  One day out of 10 I had one mistake, and a minor one at that.  I am proud of my accomplishments and I feel great!
