By the afternoon, I still had energy from this morning since this breakfast 👆🏾had loads of fiber & protein in it. There's more to the bowl than meets the eye though. Step-by-step recipe in pics (with hidden ingredients on the bottom of the bowl) is on the blog now. Link in profile. 👍🏾 #workweekrecipes #stressfreerecipes #riseandshinebright

Winter in Alabama. Not usually too cold but last night it was 9 degrees and that is pretty damn chilly for us southerners. My solution? Winter Tomato and Rice Soup! This is a perfect cold weather recipe because it calls for cranking up the oven for roasting tomatoes in addition to a simmering soup pot on the stove. Cozy AF. #vegan #veganaf #whatveganseat #veganfood #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #peaceonmyplate #noanimalsharmed #crueltyfree #fortheanimals #donteatthehomies #eatplantsnotanimals #maketheconnection #govegan #tomatosoup #babyitscoldoutside

Anybody who knows me at all knows how much I love to feed people, it’s totally my happy place. Well today I not only got to feed a crew of hungry men a big ol’ pot of chili and a chocolate cake, but I got paid for it! Here’s to a little #sidehustle doing something you love! #vegan #veganaf #whatveganseat #veganfood #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #peaceonmyplate #noanimalsharmed #crueltyfree #fortheanimals #donteatthehomies #eatplantsnotanimals #maketheconnection #govegan #chili #chocolatecake

My little brother who's a high school teacher was off for the MLK holiday, & he treated me to lunch. We went to Jersey's famous Tops Diner in Newark. When I looked at the menu, I was like "wow, they have nothing gluten-free here". He was like "I thought that was understood when I said we were going to the diner. This could be your cheat day." 🤦🏽‍♀️ Gotta love him. .
.
Well I don't believe in cheat days necessarily, because there's flexibility in a healthy eating lifestyle, but looking back at yesterday, I realized it wasn't about me, my ways, my preferences, my me my. Sometimes I/we have to remember that about life. 🤔 Yesterday was about my little bro wanting to spend quality time with his big sis over a meal on him. So I went for it & got something decadent & enjoyed it while talking for hours. Priceless. .
.
Well this morning, the healthy meals continue! 😃 ...with #glutenfree oats, clementines and walnuts, and my body is singing! 🎶 #riseandshinebright

Side note, love this guy right here. @jeanthehueman. ❤️ .

Red quinoa porridge a la Scott Jurek topped with apples, chia seeds, golden raisins and slivered almonds. A definite new cold morning favorite. #vegan #veganaf #whatveganseat #veganfood #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #peaceonmyplate #noanimalsharmed #crueltyfree #fortheanimals #donteatthehomies #eatplantsnotanimals #maketheconnection #govegan #quinoa #porridge #goodstart

I never host a healthy eating challenge and just supervise. I do it myself too, right alongside my awesome team! ❤️ This morning is day 1/wk 1 and I got mostly everyone's breakfast pics on our private What's App group chat, and I gotta say I'm quite impressed with what the team is eating for breakfast. Week 1 is starting off strong! 👊🏽 #jerseystrong #healthyeating #churchchallenge #startwithbreakfast #riseandshinebright .

Just what I need right now! I eat 1 to 2 Avocados a day. Here is a simple breakdown of their nutrients.

Avocados are very nutritious and contain a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals.

Here are some of the most abundant nutrients, in a single 3.5 ounce (100 gram) serving (3): Vitamin K: 26% of the RDA.

Folate: 20% of the RDA.

Vitamin C: 17% of the RDA.

Potassium: 14% of the RDA.

Vitamin B5: 14% of the RDA.

Vitamin B6: 13% of the RDA.

Vitamin E: 10% of the RDA.

Then it contains small amounts of Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorous, Vitamin A, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin) and B3 (Niacin). This is coming with 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats. Although it contains 9 grams of carbs, 7 of those are fiber so there are only 2 "net" carbs, making this a low-carb friendly plant food.

Avocados do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and are low in saturated fat. I personally don't think that matters, but this is one of the reasons they are favored by many "old school" experts who still believe these things are inherently harmful. #delicious #vegansofinstagram #peaceonmyplate #whatthehealth #whatveganseat #cowspiracy #forksoverknives #lookouthereicome

Hoisin Tofoo and stir fry with pak choi & mung bean vermicelli. To make the hoisin tofu I brushed sauce onto sliced @tofooco, sprinkled with sesame seeds and grilled until golden. Couldn't be easier 🙆🌱

I'm hosting a 6 week healthy eating challenge for a group of folks from my church which starts on Monday. The Jersey Strong Healthy Eating Challenge! "HE👆🏾Challenge" for short. One of the bros called me to help them go food shopping to prep, so I dropped my wild Saturday night plans (reviewing my January goals 🤓) & said let's do it! They're so gonna kill this challenge! 👊🏽#beastmode

Me: Falafel or pizza for dinner?
Evil Me: both!! 😈
.
.
I baked the pizzas before piling on the homemade chilli houmous. Was amazing but so filling. I'll get back to it later when I can move.

The first time I actually held Rise & Shine Bright at Work in my hands was this past Sunday service at the Marriott Marquis. In that moment I was a bit blown away. For me, the book in-hand represents memories that I'm now grateful for. Memories of previous work lessons (good + bad), for the nudge from God to get those lessons out into the world, for revisiting the thought process behind some of my favorite healthy breakfast recipes (yum) 🍽️, for the days I call 'writer's flow' which I loved (!!), and the days of writer's block 🤦🏽‍♀️which challenged me to stretch + grow. All those memories remind me that nothing in life takes place in vain. It's about what we get to do with the material we already have in our hands. ❤️ #justgrateful #riseandshinebright

Pretty damn excited about my first ever batch of tofu cooked in the air fryer. Had to go with my truest love, Frank’s Hot Sauce, to turn it into some Buffalo Tofu. Crispy outside, chewy inside, Amazing. #vegan #veganaf #whatveganseat #veganfood #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #peaceonmyplate #noanimalsharmed #crueltyfree #donteatthehomies #eatplantsnotanimals #maketheconnection #govegan #airfryer #buffalotofu

To fit in a healthy breakfast even if it's a crazy morning, we've got to be strategic. The 'how-to' AND the recipe for my Veggie Frittata [that I couldn't leave you with just one shot of 😋 🍽️] is on the blog. ✍🏽 Link in profile. #foodlife #worklife #riseandshinebright .

My first go-round with soy curls. These soak up the flavor of whatever you put on them! So versatile. I cooked them in some broth & Chik’n Salt and then tossed them in this salad with some avo and ranch dressing. Definitely going the Asian route next time with these. #vegan #veganaf #whatveganseat #veganfood #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #peaceonmyplate #noanimalsharmed #crueltyfree #donteatthehomies #eatplantsnotanimals #maketheconnection #govegan #soycurls
