Blog 01 – Introduction.

Hello, whoever’s reading! This blog is dedicated to all of the Dreamers, Rebels, Black Sheep, Misfits, or anyone who just needs to relate. I’ve made some recent lifestyle changes, from transitioning into a vegetarian to finding the career path I want to take. A lots happening. This blog is going to be my way of “capturing” my journey through it all. I guess you could say I’m “Soul Searching”. So lets watch me transform. Hopefully some of you will join me along the way 🙂

Blog 04 – “The Cliff” Best little health food restaurant in Northern NJ.

Today I went to this little lunch spot in Downtown Jersey City, called “The Cliff”. Referred by good a friend of mine! SUPER freaking cute, and super reasonable. They have a very LA vibe to them, for those who have been to California you know what I’m talking about. Some of the food contains cheese, but you can always request vegan options and they make it known on their menu. They are all about eating clean and healthy and they are pretty much all plant based, which is rad! The staff is so warm and they make you feel like your at home.

I had the Acai bowl, made with Acai, Coconut Milk Base, and Banana. Then the bowl is topped off with Raspberry, Blackberry, Banana, Strawberry, Kiwi, Chia, Coconut shavings, and Bee pollen. Let me tell you, this was one of the best Acai bowls I’ve ever had. So much flavor and its not just a smoothie in a bowl. This bowl definitely makes you feel like your on an island, so if you live close to here you can feel like its summer all year long! I would consider everyone gives this place a try! They are a 10 in my book!

Blog – 03 What the what?!

DISCLAIMER, before I start this I would just like to say that I would never try to make anyone go Vegan/Vegetarian. This is simply my journey and what I’m going through and I would love nothing more but to educate you all during this process.

A few nights ago I watched a documentary called “What The Health”! and boy let me tell you, it blew my mind! It pretty much defines why I am doing this. Meat and Dairy is the number one cause of health issues, 1 out of every 3 Americans will die from some form of heart disease. Meanwhile 70% of Americans are overweight and 28 million suffer from cancer. ALSO in the coming decade 50% of Americans will be diagnosed diabetic or pre-diabetic. The good news is, is that all of these diseases are preventable and sometimes even reversible with the right DIET. I KNOW, the answer everyone will give me is well you need protein to “live” lol. I’ve got news for you, PROTEIN COMES FROM PLANTS! plants are actually the number 1 source of healthy protein.

The “World Health Organization” did some studies on processed meat. After the research was done it put processed meat such as “Bacon, Sausage, Hot dogs, Salami, Corn beef, Beef Jerky, and Meat based sauces in the same category as smoking cigarettes. Now I’m not saying completely cut meat out of your diet and that eating meat is nearly as bad as smoking but maybe just cut down how much meat you are eating.

I can tell you first hand that I feel like a brand new person. I have energy, my skin is clearing up and I’ve maintained my figure as well. You would be surely helping your body, and your mind but more importantly you would be helping the Environment and Animals.

Blog 02 – Facing the music

I’ve come to the realization on why I did not pursue cosmetology, almost like my AH HA! moment so to speak. Alright so lets get down to the “nitty gritty”. Us as humans.. are very flawed individuals, which is OK. But I think we need to realize we are flawed, and try to fix the issue whatever it may be. No one can fix yourself but YOU, a little something I’ve had to learn along the way. You can try to mask your issues with beauty, or by being superficial but at the end of the day your going to still going to be, well..stuck with yourself. In reality until you come to terms with your inner “demons” there is no fixing it. I personally do not want to beautify someone so they can hide behind their flaws. Not saying everyone who wears makeup is ugly on the inside. I know the most beautiful people who wear makeup, myself included. But I will tell you this much, I feel the most beautiful when I’m not wearing makeup. When I put makeup on thats how you know I’m having a day or I feel uncomfortable, not wearing makeup makes me feel more vulnerable. I’ve seen much more ugly in this industry than I have beautiful. Therefore, not a fan. Beauty comes from within.
