inesl Day 2 of #100happydays - Whole Foods but specifically, the bulk bins and just generally speaking, food shopping. I love going to the grocery store. I love reading nutrition labels, looking at ingredient lists, seeing what new products are out, crossing things off my list, trying samples, watching what other people are putting in their cart, using coupons and seeing that come off at the total, comparing prices and cost per serving, bagging my own groceries. I love it aaaall! 2h

inesl Everything in my life is changing. Things are really crazy right now and I am completely overwhelmed. It's difficult to find any sort of routine amidst all these changes so I know that now, more than ever, is when I should be hitting my yoga mat, meditating, and journaling. But that's the funny thing about knowing what you need to do - the trouble is often just doing it. As a result, I've pretty much shut down.
@tracytribes and I are ready to climb out of our hate caves and find some peace in the day to day things. Because it's the little details that make the big picture and at the moment, we're both running around like we're in an M.C. Escher drawing, unable to see anything straight or find our way, so we are stopping to give thanks and appreciate small things that make us happy. That's the thing, see, what you focus on grows. Rather than obsessing over the things that frustrate us and are stressing us out, we are going to magnify *happy*! Here's to day 1: the new Ikea catalog

  •   silvernailm In waiting till 8/22 to start my 100 happy days. Hope I can make it 21h
  •   casch_rock I'm in that same mental spot, overwhelmed and shut down, right now for an unknown reason. Hope you get on the other side quickly. 20h
  •   likmesilly Ha! Never thought someone else right at this moment of my life and at this time of day could describe how I feel and give me a little bit of encouragement. I haven't felt myself in so long and there is so much going on that I have not been able to catch up. I'm missing out on everything that could make me happy because I'm to busy missing what I was and concentrating on the negatives. My body and mind is asking for a major detox. I may just do that this weekend. Taking things slow and one day at time. Thanks. 17h
  •   tabbyranch You're moving, right? That's always super stressful! Gupta got selected for the calendar, haha 17h

inesl Finally! This was good, not great. Excited to try the white cheddar. #vegan #earthbalance #veganmacandcheess 6d
  •   zerbitt Am I the only one who never liked boxed mac n cheese? I can't get myself excited about this. 6d
  •   veganjesskrueger Where did you find this !! 5d
  •   inesl @veganjesskrueger whole foods 5d
  •   veganjesskrueger Paramus??? I'm heading there today last time I went I didn't see it maybe I didn't look in the right place 5d
  •   inesl @veganjesskrueger the union one. I waited weeks for it! Paramus is a bigger store though so I think they'd have it 5d
  •   inesl @veganjesskrueger it was only there. A few days ago! And it was running low so it could have been sold out or just not there yet. It was by the pastas 5d
  •   veganjesskrueger Oooooh I didn't know there was one in union ! I'm praying they have it at Paramus I'm dying to try ! 5d
  •   robinsveganlife I feel like everyone is so excited that this exists now that they automatically think it's awesome I haven't tried it but maybe I will eventually! It's a fun throwback to childhood. 3d

inesl Lunch!
I don't really like things marketed as fake meats like vegan tuna or vegan scallops or vegan duck, sort of creeps me out. Things like sausages or burgers I have less trouble with because those are just ways to create shapes out of foods, if that makes sense. I will try them, though, just so I can be informed and generate an opinion on new product and restaurants. I do keep some Gardein and Tofurky in my freezer for emergency purposes like, "Oh shit it's 10pm on Sunday, I just got home and didn't meal prep" kind of emergencies. With that said, I saw that my Whole Foods has a vegan "chicken" salad made with @beyondmeat so I figured I'd try it and that's today's lunch! Anyway, it was okay. I won't get it again but it's nice to have the option there. Crudites (cuke, tomato, carrot, celery) with a spring salad, blanched almonds and some delicious cherries. #veganines #beyondmeat #vegan #veganlunch

  •   marenmitchell Their chicken is really good though if you fry or grill it. Nom nom! 6d
  •   cinderandash The curry "chicken" has much better flavor/texture in my opinion. The dressing and consistency of the chicken are different in them both. That one is almost greasy. (Obviously I love to meal prep. 😬) 6d

inesl So the dill hasn't held up but the rosemary, lavender, basil, mint, tarragon, and thyme have. I need to cut some. What should I make with which herbs?!? #growgardensnotlawns #herbs #herbivore #homegrown #fireescapegarden #plantbased #green #vegan 2w

  •   floppywalking @inesl I use fresh mint with some spinach and toasted pistachios to make a unique summery pesto sauce. It is great over asparagus and peas with farfelle pasta. 2w

inesl A #vegan shopping cart!
I'm often asked what my shopping cart looks like...
So happy to be home for the next few weeks and get back to my routine (following a keto diet, training for a marathon). This is pretty much what I eat on the regular. (Not pictured/under the pile: celery, carrots, frozen berries.)
Things I also eat every day but have enough of at home: aloe juice, garlic, oats, spinach, dark chocolate, green tea, nutritional yeast, and sunflower seeds. #traderjoes #iwishcookiebutterwasntvegan

  •   piezecat I love those pics, especially when they are from different countries. Thats why I hate all inclusive holidays. I to go to the Supermarket and discover all the new things and packaging that we do not have here I just realized that sounds a bit creepy 2w
