Fab Five Friday: 5 Things You Need to Start Living a Plant-Based Lifestyle Today

TGIF, friends!

Today we're talking about one of my absolute favorite topics: plant-based living!

I began my plant-based journey in my early 20's after reading the book Skinny Bitch - I basically became a vegetarian overnight. From there, I eventually transitioned into a vegan lifestyle after realizing that cheese / dairy was not making my skin or digestive system happy (if you're interested in learning more about my plant-based journey, leave a comment below!).

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a beautiful weekend! My family was in town for a night and we got to celebrate Father's Day at our house. Yesterday morning, my mom, sister and I took a wonderful yoga class together at Citizen Yoga (if you're in Metro-Detroit, you need to stop into Citizen! You just might see a familiar face!) and my husband and dad went golfing together. While the boys were golfing, my sister, mom and I got our Father's Day lunch together: my mom made chicken piccata, a very yummy pea and caper risotto (vegan version for me) and I made roasted asparagus and a nice big kale and mixed greens salad with carrots, blueberries, raspberries, toasted walnuts and almonds topped with a simple vinaigrette of balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard and my favorite basil olive oil from Fustini's.  We had a wonderful weekend together!
