slowlybeingvegan Quick dinner, we've barely been eating been so tied up with spring football with my dad head coach, mom teammom, & little brother star receiver & wannabe cheerleader (my daughter) we've rarely been home so we have to think of something quick to eat before bed most of the time. Taco salad with vegan sour cream & cheese, fake ground meat, & vegetarian chili. Super good topped with the good veggies. & desert was my family watching my favorite movie how do you spend your week nights? #vegetarian #vegan #taco #salad #nachos #myweekeithmarilyn #marilynmonroe #smartlife #fakemeat #vegetarianchili #chili #yummy 2y

slowlybeingvegan It's been a long morning; in Sac waiting to see my brand new baby cousin, this baby is special because my aunt was told she would never be able to have kids cause of her severe diabetes but here she is having her second child in her 40s & they are both perfectly healthy. Just waiting to see the baby tired #tea #marilynmonroe #mug #yogi #tired #energy #waiting #newbaby #energytea 2y

slowlybeingvegan GREEN GREEN GREEN looks funky but was so yummy. We've rarely been home to eat but I found this & put something together quick. I love spinach spaghetti sautéed red onions, bell peppers, zucchini, & lemon topped with garlic salt. Greens always taste good. What do you come up with last minute? #vegan #vegetarian #spaghetti #spinach #greens #vegetable #spinachspaghetti #yummy #vegansofig 2y
  •   la_tinabella Pretty much the same thing. Except I sauté garlic cloves first then sauté veggies (bell pepper, tomato, green beans) then add pasta and mix. I always have pasta and a few veggies. T 2y

slowlybeingvegan Haha went a little crazy today with the fruits and veggies, trying to get my mom a little slimmer for her wedding next month. Trying out the yogi tea, heard great things ! I told my mom, fluids fluids fluids no matter what it is will help the digestive system (besides soda). I always reuse the plastic bags for dirty diapers when I'm on the go so today I stocked up any suggestions for veggie snacks or smoothies? #vegan #yogitea #yogi #vegansofig #vegetarian #fruits #veggies #green #gogreen #energy #cleansing #detox 2y
  •   rhayemun I always mix spinach with my smoothies! And you should try your hand at making some yummy hummus to dip your veggies in. Great and filling replacement to ranch :D 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @rhayemun I love hummus, great idea ! 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @sujintenoriois not good ! I usually shop at whole foods or safeway so thanks for the info ! 2y
  •   yoginirobyn Frozen bananas make smoothies super creamy. Let the bananas get nice and ripe, then peel them and put them in a bag or container in the freezer. They won't turn brown at all if you do them that way 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @yoginirobyn thank you for the tip ! I never knew that. I don't like brown bananas but that just gave me some relief thanks ! 2y
  •   yoginirobyn @slowlybeingvegan you're welcome! I used to freeze them in the peels and they turned dark brown, this way keeps them perfect, you can put them in the food processor and turn them into ice cream too! Looking forward to following your progress 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @yoginirobyn great thinking & thank you so much for the support I really appreciate it 2y

slowlybeingvegan Who said Mexicans can't be vegan? They live their veggies what's your favorite veggie???? #vegetarian #vegan #vegansofig #cucumbers #mexican #chile #tapatio #veggies #cucumbersandchile #pink 2y
  •   kalynnoland That sounds yummy 2y
  •   rhayemun My wife is Mexican and we certainly get crazy veganizing some of her old faves. Good for you becoming vegan :) it wad the best thing we ever did! If you ever need cheap vegan ideas all anytime! We shop 99 cent only stores a lot for our produce and our accidentally vegan favorites. We even found vegan soyrizo there before you better believe we bought it out :) best of luck! 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @rhayemun thank you ! & good for you guys too ! I've tried the Soyrizo w/ tofu & came out amazing so I've found some things but I certainly do look for more ideas to help out my big Mexican family. I love finding alternatives for my favorite dishes, will definitely be asking you guys thanks ! 2y

slowlybeingvegan Love this face mask, really helps my skin feel brand new & pours are freshly cleaned out, super cheap when you just want a quick fix. Got it at Walmart for a little over 1$ ! & plus side it actually says "not tested on animals" further research will prove right hopefully what kind of natural face masks do you make or buy? #vegan #pomegranate #vegetarian #girlsnight #facemask #facial #softlikeababysbottom #nottestedonanimals #vegansofig 2y
  •   veggiepapi I usually just do Dead Sea mud, coconut oil, very little hemp or hazelnut oil (whatever I have), and a little almond yogurt to get the consistency I want. 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan Substitute for almond yogurt? Lol I should be in a bubble I'm allergic to a lot of good stuff. @hungry_in_philly but other than that, I've heard a lot of great things about those ingredients, I'm glad they worked for uou 2y
  •   veggiepapi @slowlybeingvegan soy yogurt but you don't need it if you get the Dead Sea mud... just put a little more oil to break down the consistency. 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan That makes sense thanks I will defiantly try that out ! @hungry_in_philly 2y
  •   veggiepapi I used to have a strawberry and peanut allergy. I have a casein (milk) allergy. I stopped eating dairy, and now those two allergies are gone. 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan Really? I have allergies for apples, avocado, soy, almonds, peaches, plums & apricots. The most yummy foods I get bad with it sucks cause I really really want a candy apple lol. & it's too painful to sacrifice my face for these good foods lol @hungry_in_philly 2y
  •   veggiepapi How about a candy pear or honeydew? 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @hungry_in_philly pear either lol basically all over apples cousins & I've never tried honeydew. I'll have to look into that. 2y

slowlybeingvegan When you don't feel like making something big or no car to buy some food here what you got ! My baby was hungry and they give us tuna for WIC so I made a really yummy sandwich ; toasted bread with vegan pepper jack cheese (melted a little), veganaise, tuna, onions, shredded cabbage, salt, & a jalapeño completes every sandwich ! Must say I really pulled through and my baby usually doesn't eat food but she ate her who entire sandwich and loved it. I'm thinking vegan cookies for her later, anybody have any ideas or special trick for vegan cookies? #vegan #notvegan #vegetarian #pescetarian #tuna #veganaise #sandwich #yummy #foodporn #vegancookies? 2y
  •   rhayemun Oreos are vegan! But if you want to make your little one a healthy cookie you can just mix pb, soaked oatmeal and choc chips(opt) make them tablespoon size plop them on a bashing sheet for 10 min for a hearty healthy cookie :) 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @rhayemun sounds yummy thanks ! 2y

slowlybeingvegan Made this the other night, was beyond yummy. The hardest thing for me to give up is shrimp, I absolutely love it but hey it's a slow process, i can still eat what I want vegan isn't a religion where we have to indie by every single rule, like I said I'm Slowly Being Vegan. Anyways back to the food lol; decided to try spinach spaghetti noodles, was soooo good with the sautéed onions & zucchini with olive oil and bunch of different spices with shrimp and lemon to top it off. Kind of just threw everything together last minute. Again this dish was so good even without the shrimp if you sauté some veggies in olive oil it's still a good dish I strongly recommend the spinach spaghetti ! #vegetarian #pescetarian #notvegan #vegan #spaghetti #spinachspaghetti #shrimp #shrimppasta 2y

  •   meredithwad Hang in there! You will find that these sorts of confrontations and ignorant questions NEVER go away, so be patient with people. We have all been lied to by the food industry; we're all learning together. Just educate yourself and be as polite and informative as possible when you encounter ignorance. We vegans get a bad rap for being combative and pretentious already! Lets cultivate peace! 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @meredithwad thank you so much ! Overall out community is better because we don't only pay attention to ourselves & when people attack me like that I simple say ok & go on with my business. I didn't ask for their opinion, I didn't even tell her nor was I making a big deal about not eating meat. I've gotten over the taste and I just don't like it for other reasons. I'm not sitting there questioning everyone else why they eat meat, I know exactly why & I don't persuade them not to anymore, I do help my family to learn newer healthier ways, I don't deprive them of their meat because overall people eat more protein than they need & eating less meat will contribute to a healthier lifestyle. I know the feeling of a gay person or someone who is looked down on for living their own life, minding their own business. Cause in the en their not the one eating this food I am & it's not their business. 2y
  •   meredithwad @slowlybeingvegan Right! Sometimes saying "ok" and going about your business is the best you can do. It's so tricky because food is a really personal thing to so many people. Unfortunately, identifying yourself as vegan comes with a long list of stereotypes that people can get defensive about - like that your lifestyle assumes you disapprove of everyone else's. Good luck! 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @meredithwad yea I understand that too that's why I say aspiring vegan but the good thing about labeling yourself is that nobody is there to watch you & say no your bread touched that chicken if you eat it you're not vegan ! Lol so that's what I keep in my mind & that no one can tell me I can't. & thank you ! 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @firexfly aww thank you so much ! Yea that's exactly how I was in the beginning. Personally I think humans are carnivores but it's disgusting eating fake meat that's supposedly real but processed with hormones & beaten as if it weren't food period. That's why I decided to become vegan because some animals weren't meant for being processed or tested on. That's my belief and I'm glad you have your beliefs as well because us vegans/vegetarians are helping for a change in our world little by little. 2y

slowlybeingvegan Tried a new spot, my lunch was beyond yummy !!! First time trying tempeh, it was a vegan tempeh sandwich omg! Seriously yummy, different from what I expected but it was so good, they gave me an orange with my meal lol. It's a vegetarian I found near my school, I'd def go back! #vegan #vegetarian #tempeh #sanjose #greenbitescafe 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan *vegetarian restaurant 2y
  •   veg_addict Looks great! 2y
  •   mrchocobean @slowlybeingvegan stop eating bread with gluten its not healthy it gives you a belly if you stop eating bread and use a organic oat or organic vegan protein raw chocolate meal/shake you will see its the best way to start your day. Bread is only a fill up the fibers are also in greens and other stuff thats a better source to start your day 2y
  •   mrchocobean One bread option are the german zuurdesem and spelt breads u can eat but better not . 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @mrchocobean great tips thank you ! How do you recommend raw vegan dieting? 2y
  •   mrchocobean @slowlybeingvegan all products must be Organic no GMO ( 90 % of the usa food is GMO ) contact me at facebook can send you the right way with groups i can show you have some great contacts for you. 2y

slowlybeingvegan Ok ! Second try at #Soyrizo ! Surprised no taste difference. This time I tried it with scrambled #tofu. Sprinkles some salt and pepper with Mexican vegan cheese and vegan sour cream. Topped with tapatio only difference was the texture but I did pretty good ! Thanks people for the suggestion ! #vegan #vegetarian 2y

slowlybeingvegan Ok so I made #spaghetti. Not successful at all ! Was mostly vegan for the most part the noodles I was reaching for was supposed to be spaghetti and grabbed angel hair instead & didn't realize it till I put them to boil no biggy tho. Also the box said these noodles were manufactured in a same factory as eggs . Now the spaghetti sauce I got at whole foods, just needed a small jar for me and baby, it was different tasting alright. Probably won't purchase again but I did like it was certified vegan ! But these meatless meatball so nasty no way I'd eat these again omg gross ! I think cause their soybean meatballs ? Idk hated them. Tried to add tapatio because I love hot stuff but I added too much & over powered it so I didn't get to enjoy my meal. & with a glass of crystal light pink lemonade in the side. My baby didn't like then either fail ! I'm just going to stick to pasta sauce & noodles from now on. How do you make your spaghetti? #vegan #vegetarian 2y
  •   thed0nna I hate fake meats. I've tried all kinds of fake chicken, fake hamburgers and they all gross me out. When I eat spaghetti I eat noodles and sauce. I like it just fine that way but I have hated beef for a longggg time. :x 2y
  •   plantplantfitness Make your own pasta sauce! It's actually super easy and cheap, so you can freeze the extras for next time. Use lots of fresh tomatoes, garlic, onions, and basil. Try googling recipes!! 2y
  •   monica_estrella @myguardianangel2012 has a great point! Loading up pastas with various veggies makes your pasta colorful. Morningstar makes a meatless meat, and that might be egg-free. Trader Joes has a meatless meat, but the soy protein has milk! I've found Boca is vegan, and I'll add seasonings to make the flavor better. Rosemary and oregano makes a big difference! 2y
  •   sustainableinthecity_ There is a website called Weelicious they have amazingggg! easy veggie nuggets. I hate vegetables and sweet potatoes but LOVE these and make in bulk and freeze. Just google I'm not connected with them in any way just a suggestion for fake meat!! :) 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @sustainableinthecity_ thank you ! We love our veggies & she loves nuggets so I think that'll make it very helpful for us lol. 2y

slowlybeingvegan Yummy yummy ! New fav snack ! I used to be a Doritos & sour cream kind of chick but these are so good. I found this hummus last week at some whole in the wall farmers market and tried it with pita bread, alright. Couldn't figure out what to eat it with as a snack because it's yummy alone & good texture. So I found these hummus chips at whole foods. Their salty so it really gives it a yummy taste with the hummus. What do you eat hummus with as a snack? What other kind of hummus do you recommend? #vegan #vegetarian 2y

slowlybeingvegan My very supporting pregnant best friend wanted #dominos, so me and baby ate our half already & she's eating her first pizza haha. This is going to be the very hardest to get over #cheese cheese cheese cheese :( oh how I adore my melted cheese this one is a toughy. The vegan cheese doesn't take as good as melted nacho cheese. But this is a slow transformation so everyone bare with me ! Lol. & to top it off with a #diet cola. Tryna watch my figure #vegetarian 2y
  •   veg_addict @slowlybeingvegan Yeah apples were always a huge problem for me. My throat would swell and everything. It was terrible. Hopefully it does help you so you can try a candy apple Good luck! 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @janelleamaya thanks so much for the support ! 2y
  •   thed0nna I have tried to start eating more veggies that I like to fill my hunger. Today was the first time I've had a cheese substitute. I've been vegan completely for a month so far, with no slip ups. It hasn't been easy and I feel your pain about cheese. I love cheese milk and eggs so much. I watched a documentary that really helped me make my decision to have more will power. If you have time I highly recommend watching it. It's called Earthlings. I think it's just www.earthlings.com. It's a little over an hour and narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. :) 2y
  •   roverhendrix <--- Casomorphins is probably why you're addicted. Try a Berkeley Vegan from Zpizza if you're near one! My fave pizza. Daiya mmmmm mmmm! I became vegan overnight so everything was quit cold tofu for me. Weaning yourself might cause more problems and keep you "in transition." :) 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan Well I have to be careful for my toddler too because she could be allergic, just like babyhood you have to test things out see if they like it. Plus becoming vegan in my household is a little expensive, it's been a week now but most of our foods is vegan, have barely eat out, no milk, only dairy product we have left really is cheese. And I'm cooking a lot more. If it were just mean I'd go complete vegan over night but I have someone else I have to watch over. 2y
  •   veg_addict You're welcome 2y
  •   riverdreamer @janelleamaya good to know. Sounds like you're been alkalized tremendously and improved your metabolism. Taste-bud is usually the first indicator. :) 2y

slowlybeingvegan This is what we had for lunch, nothing too special. My Tia was making tacos so I decided to try out these frozen vegan chicken taquitos. Their alright :/ have that frozen food taste to it. Sprinkled some vegan cheese, vegan sour cream, and pico de gallo with some #Mexican rice. Delicious. & a pomegranate limeade on the side 2y
  •   the_decemberist I find a lot of the frozen vegan food is bad. The taste is terrible, and when offered to my dog, he even turned his nose up to a few of the foods I made. 2y
  •   the_decemberist It's definitely a learning process :) but soon enough you find out what is good, and what isn't! 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan Yea it wasn't that bad I even found the meatless nuggets for my little one and those tasted yummy. They don't taste different than the frozen food I've had before. Their good to have when I wanna be lazy or something quick lol. @the_decemberist 2y
  •   thed0nna The vegan cheese I find here in our publix says it still contains milk on the label, What's the brand that you are buying? It's frustrating, why would a cheese substitute have milk in it? 2y
  •   slowlybeingvegan @thed0nna I have this cheese that I bought from whole foods, I was trying to read the label even tho it didn't have much ingredients it's still looked confusing, I'm in the process of looking up all of those ingredients so I'll let you know ! But there is that daiya cheese that everyone is referring me, try that one out? 2y
  •   thed0nna @slowlybeingvegan thank you I'll definitely check that out! :) 2y
  •   cyderr Daiya cheese is one of the best out there and completely vegan. 2y
