Meet Candice: The Edgy Veg

Now here's a girl that knows how to take the hippy, tree hugger, rabbit food, vibe right out of being vegan! 

Candice has a blog named The Edgy Veg and a youtube channel too! I just saw her recipe for Vegan Kale "Doritos!" HOLY COW! I can't wait to try them. Her site is fun and light hearted. Just had to share her with you all. You'll find tons of inspiration.

Or how about this one for some Meatlessly Mouthwatering homemade Vegan Plant based Bacon. Yes I just said Bacon! (you'll never guess what veggie she used)

Sushi with Butternut Squash, Basil & Cream Cheese

Butternut, Basil, Cream Cheese & Cashew Sushi

I LOVE SUSHI!!!  There are so many combos and this one can easily set off a brainstorm of ideas. My thoughts for basic good sushi combos are:
  1. Something crunchy.
  2. Something soft.
  3. Something BOLD flavored. (but only use a tiny bit)
  4. Something subtle flavored. (you can use more)
  5. Something colorful.
From there you can add:

Something salty.
Something sour.
Something sweet.
Something bitter.

Always try to

Planning for success.

Belly fat came back, energy down, puffy face, etc etc. Like I mentioned in "my story," I've always enjoyed meat and was raised cooking and baking with animal based ingredients. Doing "what's best" isn't always easy, but I know it's better for me and my family when we are eating (and living) a more plant based life style. So
