Hello! I’m Lisa, a vegan artist, photographer, author, Vegan Life Coach Educator, and RYT 200 yoga teacher. I love showing others how simple and delicious a plant-based diet can be. I draw and paint, cook, write, take lots of pics, eat lots of chocolate, and practice gratitude daily.
I am so so glad to have found this blog!! I am a college student, and have been trying out raw, but get worried because I have to eat so much raw-ness to fill myself up, so I get stressed about my budget. This stuff looks very satisfying and delicious. Thank you, I can't tell you how refreshing it is to find an active raw food blog. I need that inspiration. Do you know of any others that an aspiring raw foodist should check out? Thank you!
avocado and cucumbers- wow. I'm sure it's delicious!
This looks so good and refreshing! I love the combination of cucumbers and avocados.
