Blogging and Body Confidence

Life is interesting, full of twists and turns; makes things interesting yet fun. That is how I am back to blogging I have made turn to start writing and start photography again. Some where down in my heart tells me it is the right thing, to listen to your heart is to listen to soul. It's like the saying that music is the heart and soul for singers, will I happen to be a really good singer... Yet I hide that I am simply because I am shy..

I am going to start a blog series based on positive thinking, positive  thoughts and self improvement; along with that I will share my adventures of me learning to be myself with confidence. All of this came upon after watching a couple YouTube videos from Sarah Rae Vargas, she is awesome. She made me realize that body confidence and confidence are really important to oneself. 

I will still be doing my food and nutrition part of my blog, I will sharing more of my daily life posts to show you how I have been able to be successful at my weight loss. Yes that's right all the weight I have kept off has not come back and I will go into how it has been possible. For now I will leave you to wondering where I have been....

Vegan Comfort Food: Taco Edition

It's no secret if you look almost every blogger here in Texas is big on tacos, it's almost the state food you would think lol. Personally I don't mind taco's for breakfast/lunch or dinner because they are simple, versatile and you can make them how every you want. Last night I made tacos with a slight fusion to them; I made spicy turmeric onions for bean tacos.

The spicy turmeric onions are four simple ingredients: yellow onion, coconut oil, pepper, garlic and turmeric. Sauteed together on high heat for about 5-7 minutes until they were slightly caramelized almost. Once you cook them I transfer them right over to the taco for the best flavor, these onions are delicious while warm. I served them with re-fried bean tacos that were topped with guacamole and lettuce. These were topped Skyville Taco Sauce which paired perfectly with the onions creating a perfect in flavor. 

If you have Instagram follow me @southernpurpleveg , you'll be able to see my daily posts of vegan goodness and the scenes behind why I don't blog all the time.

Yike's It's Inventory time.

I'm not going to lie but Vegan MoFo falls on the month that my work does inventory so schedules are chaotic along with my chaotic life. Right now I have a lot on my plate between blog, work and life it seems to became a huge blur. So I'm going to slow down and enjoy small things in life; like my dedication  to healthy plant base food here in Texas. 

This week at work we got halloween products next to my desk at work, and I like to wonder over to them time to time to play with them. Hey I got to have fun at my work at 6am when there are no customers. Oh boy did I have fun and so did one of my co workers we even got people through the day laughing too. 

I found mummy's that do the thriller dance, yes before you ask I do have a video( if you go over to my instragram page I have the video with sound just look up southernpurpleveg ). I am leaving you with that for now since I am off to a Inventory meeting, yay!!
