Kind Veggie is on a mission in 2014!
Have you ever thought that some bloggers almost seemed perfect? Their food is always beautiful, their recipes always come out fantastic, and they never eat something they shouldn't? You won't find that here. I am a real person with a real life and real "stuff" that happens. This year, I'm going to share it with you. I hope that with this experience, not only will I learn what it is that I need to do to get over the "plateau" we all seem to face in the weightloss journey and develop good habits, but also to inspire others. Maybe you too have hit a plateau, or maybe you aren't sure what the first step to a healthier life is. No matter where you are, I hope that we can learn from each other and inspire each other to keep going in the direction of health.
Also for 2014, kindveggie.com will feature short cooking videos in my "Little Green Kitchen" series. Little Green Kitchen will feature some of the simple basics of healthy plant based eating as well as full blown recipes. I tend to be pretty messy in the kitchen, so a laugh or two is almost guaranteed!
2014 looks to be an exciting year. I look forward to spending some time with all of you and sharing what I've learned so far.
What is a whole foods plant-based way of eating?
For the purposes of this site, a whole foods plant-based way of eating will be defined as a mostly unprocessed diet, using whole foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, beans and legumes. These items are the ones in the store that generally do not have an ingredients list because they contain just one item, and may or may not even come in a package as in the case of dried beans from the bulk section. The definition can vary from there, but I personally prefer to do all my cooking at home, and in the process use very little to no oil as well as little to no salt. Also, recently I've been cutting out processed sugar and only using whole fruits, for the added kick of sweetness if needed.
To those who are unfamilar, it may sound a little weird and extreme, but it is much easier than it sounds and completely delicious! Please look around the site and let me know what you think! If there is a resource you have personally benefited from that could be a useful addition to the site, please visit me on the contact page and send me message!
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic and healthful day!
