W.U.W: One Week Vegetarian Challenge

From On June 22, 2016

StyleLust Pages: What's Up Wednesday: One Week Vegetarian Challenge

Just over a week ago my husband and I decided that we would challenge ourselves to see if we could go one week without eating any meat. No steak, no chicken, no fish, etc. We’ve already cut pork completely out of our diet. I didn’t eat much meat when I was living in Maryland, but now that I’m here in Miami (surrounded by all these cultures with amazing food!), I’ve been eating a lot more. It came to my attention that the pounds were creeping on. Nothing crazy, but I noticed it. We eat a lot of fresh produce so we figured the challenge wouldn’t be that hard. Plus I make smoothies on a regular basis, so we’re usually well stocked. We even got creative and took to Youtube to check out vegetarian recipes.

We came across what is pictured above. Bean tacos! The beans are the meat substitute and they were so easy to make too. All you need to make them is corn tortillas, kidney beans, black beans and all the taco fixings. Cook the beans until soft and then smash them almost into a paste. Season them however you want. We added a small sprinkle of cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and mild taco sauce. I forgot the corn, but if you really want to get fancy there are tons of other ingredients to top them off with like guac, for example. We even cut back on our rice intake for the week.

I do have to admit that the week went by quickly and we never really craved eating meat. We feel lighter and I’ve even lost 2 pounds! No food comas or anything. It’s pretty eye-opening. People even mentioned to us that we needed protein to live not realizing that you can get protein from other sources like veggies or nuts. Since we feel so awesome we’re extending our challenge to see how long we can push ourselves. In the meantime, I’ve also been trying to cut out dairy. I’m not so sure about that. I’ve cut back, but I don’t think I can completely deny cheese lol.

Oh and also…we watched this documentary the other night. To be honest, it pissed me off. No one ever talks about these things, but it is something that shouldn’t be ignored. Educate yourself and watch Vegucated. It follows 3 people around that are avid meat eaters as they go vegan for 6 weeks. Super interesting and very informative.

Do you think you could go vegetarian for one week?

Off The Shoulder

StyleLust Pages: Off The Shoulder

I had always wanted a dress in this style, but after seeing it everywhere (literally everywhere) I kind of changed my mind. Kind of. I have a soft spot for chambray. I have a growing collection of denim/chambray pieces. And the fact that this dress had pockets?? I was sold. It has been in the 90’s here. It’s frickin hot. Airy dresses are all I want to be in.

On another note, what do you think of the new Pink Mini Bucket Bag? My love for pink lives on!

What I Wore: Zara dress (similar HERE), Love,Cortnie ‘Pink Milkshake’ Mini Bucket Bag (HERE), Stuart Weitzman heels (HERE), MAC lipstick in Snob (HERE)

Fire Engine Red

Stepping out of my black and white norm, I recently picked up this jumpsuit from Zara. I love the idea of it and the price point wasn’t bad either at $26. If there were anything I could change about it it would be to have it more fitted in the waist. I love the slinky lightweight fabric, so I’m holding onto it. Since I do own a sewing machine I’m going to try to get it done myself.

What I Wore: Zara jumpsuit, Love,Cortnie ‘Leopard’ Mini Bucket Bag (1 left HERE), vintage necklaces from Atlantis Dry Goods
