Beyonce's 21 Day Vegan Diet Plan


It's been in the headlines a lot lately, however vegan eating isn't really all that new. It is a great way to get lean and lose the extra pounds. I believe in it - and I have personally tried it off and on with success.

I wanted to post Beyonce's vegan diet plan because I think it's a great diet to follow if you are having a hard time getting creative in the kitchen. I hope this will simply serve as a great go to meal and food list if you feel confused. Yes, it's posted online and in other places, but this is also a helpful bookmarking tool for me also! (Since this is my blog, I know where to find it!)

The Selfie. Here is one of me behind the scenes of my recent shoot for Lauren Lorraine shoes with the incredibly talented Hollywood photographer, Ryan Astamendi, and some other interesting selfies recently taken by a few politicians and celebs. Fascinating - and sort of hilarious! But a great way to capture a moment, nonetheless.
 #selfie <- hashtag. That's another one.

Life is truly ahhhhhh-mazing! I am soaking up every minute of it, traveling, eating, working, designing, loving, enjoying, living. It's been one heck of a year! Feeling happy and blessed. Learning that happiness is truly a journey - and loving that. Here are a few photos from my latest adventure with my incredible family to Rosemary Beach and Aly's. These two places are simply fabulous. If you are looking for an exclusive and "exotic" getaway without having to go too far (depending on where you are), look no further than these two breathtaking spots on our planet. Life IS better at the beach.

(Need beach shoes? Got ya covered: www.laurenlorraine.com. I recommend the Willa, Wista and Nano for your summer travels & excursions.  )

Vegan White Truffle Oil Grits with Asparagus

YUM!!!
I love making delicious vegan recipes like this!
Today is Day 9 of transitioning to a vegan diet. Today I was feeling great but wanted something more hearty that some of my "go-to" raw string beans, apples and bananas. So, I whipped up a cup of vegan white truffle oil grits and topped them with a few stalks of asparagus. It was so easy! Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:
  • Grits
  • White Truffle Oil
  • Asparagus
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper 

Cook time: 5 minutes

You can cook your grits on the stove or in a microwave. After fully cooked, I added a teaspoon of white truffle oil and a dash of salt & pepper. You can top with raw asparagus or steam them lightly, either way, delicious.


Happy Monday and WELCOME! I’m excited you have found me here on my official blog! Let's jump right in: there is no better time than NOW to get started working on the diet and fitness goals that you have been dreaming about for so long. Join me in my journey - let's do it together!


  I hope this spot will become your go-to place for everything health, beauty, fitness, fashion, shoes, and more!




This blog is unique, providing one special place where I can share all of my personal photos, from modeling to designing shoes and being a business owner, my journey becoming vegan, behind the scenes shots from photo shoots, news, tips, tricks and ideas with you so you too can benefit from everything I've learned, and use yourself!
