Let me preface this by saying there are so many amazingly talented, wonderful plant-based ladies out there on Instagram that it would be impossible to name all of them! I follow over 350 lovely fellow plant-based bloggers and foodies myself. But I wanted to share some of the accounts I’ve been loving lately, so you can follow them and enjoy their colorful food too!

The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is none other than: greenery. It’s a color that represents nature and the outdoors, a sense of revival and renewal, and, for those of us foodies, all things plant-based. What more appropriate color than greenery to symbolize the growing interest in eating more greens and making them taste bomb-dot-com. Therefore, I’ve dedicated this round-up to all the yummy, green-centric recipes out there, starting with these dairy-free roasted garlic pesto potatoes.
I’m still on my own personal journey of self love, as I’m sure many of you might be as well. It took a lot for me to realize that I’m beautiful just the way I am. As young girls growing up, we are bombarded by the media with this ideal of what beauty looks like. It creates an unattainable goal that we may not even realize gets ingrained into our subconscious. From celebrities to fashion to social media, everyone is trying to project a certain “perfect” image especially when it comes to health, nutrition, and fitness. I really want to speak out about this because I think it plays such a big role in creating a superficially skinny ideal for young girls that can really be harmful in the long run.
