It was just the beginning...

It all began just about a year ago, I thought my life was over. As it turned out, it was just the beginning of something more wonderful.       C.I.P.

Because.... I love myself

Why do I work out almost every single day, even when I may not feel like it?  Because I love myself enough to stick with it!

Love yourself enough to take care of you!

Apples and Almond Butter

When people find out I'm not only a Vegan but, about 70% of my diet is Raw Vegan, they have a million questions and comments. One question: What do you eat "raw"? I also often hear comments like, I can't do that, it’s too complicated it takes too long. Well, here is an example of something a raw vegan might eat as a snack or part of a meal. And it’s not complicated and does not take long at all! 

You ready?! 


Sliced organic apples with raw almond butter

Raw almond butter simply means its fresh made, not pre-packaged. Yes, you can make almond butter, peanut butter, and any nut butter yourself! I make mine at my local organic market they have a machine right on the premises, I pour in the almonds and creamy, gooey almond butter comes flowing out! :)  You can also make your own nut butters using a food processor or blender right at home.

 Try it! It's yum!


The Reluctant Jogger...

I took a brisk 30 minute jog today! I don't like the cold very much but I didn't have time to get to the gym so, I got out there and went for it! I took a moment to pause so I could snap a few pictures of the frosty grass and frozen lake, then I realized the beauty of the cold crisp morning. I'm glad I didn't miss this. #ChristineInProgress
