How to go vegan {VIDEO} + Baby Kale Salads

How to go Vegan the easy wayTo commemorate my 4th year vegan, I thought I’d share some of my tips for transitioning to a vegan diet!

I certainly didn’t go vegan overnight. Actually my journey into healthy eating happened over the course of many years. I first had to teach myself how to enjoy eating vegetables. Growing up I wouldn’t touch most veggies, so when I went to college and realized I could avoid “food-guilt” if I only ate healthier, I was determined to become a veggie lover. It was pretty easy, I already loved to cook, and discovering new veggies and spices became a fun adventure and hobby.

What I eat everyday {VIDEO} + Pickled Avocado Toast

I really love to eat and cook! But to be honest I don’t like spending a lot to time in the kitchen cooking for myself. I tend to munch on avocado toast (recipe below), quick and delicious salads, roast veggie dishesBuddha bowls, and leftovers from my work as a vegan personal chef. For vegan snacks I love stove-top popcorn, fresh seasonal fruit, healthy cookies, green juices, and raw desserts. YUM!

Since I’m often asked, “Jenné, what do you eat everyday?”, I decided to make a video to show you. I hope you find it helpful, and that it gives you an honest glimpse into the eating habits of a healthy and happy vegan woman :)

What to do in New Orleans {+ Plenty for Vegans}

NOLABywaterNew Orleans is one of the few cities I’ve visited that feels like home the moment my feet touch the ground. If I believed in past lives, I would think that I had lived there before. I am a Claiborne, and lord knows there’s a lot of Claiborne blood in those parts.

I’m in love with so many aspects of New Orleans—the accents of the natives, the many types of music, the food, the homes from Bywater to Uptown, the French Quarter, the heat and humidity, the spooky fog that creeps in at night, the history, and the visible invisible that is the soul of that city.
