livingsimplistically Earthlings documentary IS a must see! Watching this documentary has been a life changing experience for me. Much of what I watched, I watched with my hands over my eyes . Not only has this provoked me to change (again) how I eat, but it confirmed my position to continue purchasing non-leather goods and faux fur items . Search it via YouTube. #nothankyou #illpass #nofur #earthlings #documentary #lifechanging #vegan #watch #livingsimplistically 1d

livingsimplistically Vegan breakfast with @kawaii.kitten_xoxo. I was craving some scrambled tofu 😟! There is no better place than Soul Vegetarian. It's hard to believe I've been coming here over 20 years. #breakfast #vegan #soulvegetarian #cleaneats #southside #veganrestaurant #livingsimplistically 1d

livingsimplistically I can't imagine spending my Friday nights any other way . Seeing the growth in my daughter as she is learning the violin is amazing. She finally understands the importance of practice and it is paying off. #shereadsmusiclikeachamp #latergram #proudmomma #music #mommaduty #violin #babygirl #livingsimplistically 2d

livingsimplistically It is a zoodles kind of evening ! I love these as an alternative to pasta and they are so simple to make. My spiralizer is the best gift (to myself) ever . Adding sauteed veggies and veggie sausage. #healthycooking #zoodles #spiralizer #zucchini #cleaneating #vegetarian #vegan #meatfree #dairyfree #livingsimplistically #ilovemyveggies 3d

livingsimplistically Today is a @feedprojects function bag type of day . Knowing my purchased helped to provide 100 school meals for children is enough for me to continue supporting this company's mission. I can't think of any overly expensive designer bags that do the same. Be sure to check them out. Their line continues to expand and the company is making some great strides to make a difference globally 🌍#feedprojects #veganfriendly #fauxsuede #noanimalsharmed #livingsimplistically #helpingothersiswhatido 3d

  •   colie_cole84 Lol!!! 5d
  •   aka6913 I want some coffee.. I have given it up....trying to see if I will give it up permanently or temporarily. I'm need some in my life!!!! 5d
  •   livingsimplistically Yes, I have tried @aka6913. I'd rather eat air 5d
  •   aka6913 @livingsimplistically. ...rotflmbo! !!!!!!! I'm a month in so far! 5d
  •   livingsimplistically Whaaaaaaatttttt you @aka6913? You use to sleep with a caffeine drip, didn't you? That is awesome 5d
  •   livingsimplistically @aka6913 I figure we all have a vice. I could probably give up wine quicker than coffee though I have been looking to buy rusted chickory again (coffee replacement). I don't drink that much. Barely one cup. 5d
  •   aka6913 @livingsimplistically ...I actually surprised myself! I haven't had wine in weeks. I do it in moderation. I will definitely have some Sunday...lol!!!! 5d
  •   livingsimplistically I am impressed @aka6913!! I have been thinking of giving up coffee and wine but now I've been transitioning to an all plant based diet. I have to focus on one thing at a time. No dairy. No eggs. I've been watching slaughter house videos again! 5d

livingsimplistically Moving away from scarves and looking to create head pieces that will make the kids who lose their hair due to chemotherapy feel GOOD! Why? Why not? Besides, I bought a dozen headbands to decorate #craftingtohelpothers #headbands #crocheted #giver #springbreak #helpingothersiswhatido #helpingothers #livingsimplistically 6d

livingsimplistically This afternoon I dropped off our first bag full of knitted/crocheted goodies my daughter and I created for the children patients at @luriechildrens. Apparently 60% of their patient population is under 3 years of age, so you know what this means...I'm #craftingforbabies #ilovethebabies #craftychristie #babies #purejoy #knittingtohelpothers #donations #selflesscrafter #livingsimplistically 6d

livingsimplistically Crafty gold finger... Using my new sparkly golden @addi_by_selter crochet hook to make a beanie for my daughter as she requested.
