I don’t really like the word “diet” as in “I’m going on a diet”. It’s too restrictive and it feels like something temporary you have to get through. I try to focus on eating healthy vegan food that nourishes my body every day rather than dieting. When I stick to non-processed plant-based food (like my Green Power Bowl), I don’t have to diet!
Sometimes I get in a rut or indulge too much (like I did over the holidays) and need to reset, so I asked my blogger friends to share their favorite healthy, yet tasty recipes with me. If you need some inspiration too, here are 30 Healthy Vegan Recipe Ideas from myself and other bloggers just for you!
