5 Favorite Healthy Vegan Snacks On Amazon

5 Favorite Healthy Vegan Snacks On Amazon

I’m shopping on amazon for almost everything now. I really love the convenience and products in all categories. Sometimes it’s cheaper to shop there as well. Recently, I found 5 of my favorite healthy, non-dairy and vegan snacks on there. So I want to share them with you in this post.

I

am on a healthy, non-dairy and vegan snack hunt for the past few months, and man they’re so many good snacks on the market. As I try to eat healthier after discovering that I’m hypoglycemic and shouldn’t be eating sweets all the time, I tried cutting out all of my sweet treats and only pick healthier choices. With this symptom, you have to eat often as well. So I need some good treats to keep my energy up all day.

Finally I found my favorite treats and I’ve been living off them everyday. I’m sure you can find them at your local supermarket. But if not, all of these snacks can be found on Amazon.com. All of the snacks I picked are non-dairy with three of them being labeled as vegan.

If you ready for some healthy snacks, let’s dive in.

1

Bobo’s Oat Bars

This is a good treat when you‘re craving sweets as I found this oat bar is the sweetest out of my 5 snacks. It’s vegan and organic. Great for a morning or afternoon snack.

2

KIND Bar Dark Chocolate Almond Mint

This is my favorite protein bar that contains different kinds of nuts and tastes so delicious. They have so many flavors but the ones I like are  Dark Chocolate Almond Mint and Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate. These bars contain honey. So if you’re a vegan who consume honey, these bars will be a great source of protein for you.

Nuttzo Organic Crunchy 7 Nut And Seed Butter

I have been eating this nut butter for years. It’s delicious and contains 7 kinds of my favorite nuts and seeds, Cashews, Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds, Hazelnuts, and Pumpkin Seeds. It’s made with non-GMO and organic ingredients.

I love eating mine with apples. I can snack on them all day everyday.

Organic Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups by Justin’s

These dark chocolate peanut butter cups are so yummy. It doesn’t say that it’s vegan as it’s produced on equipment that also processes milk. But when looking at ingredients there’s no animal products listed as its ingredients. 

5

Inka Crops Inka Plantain Chips

If you love some crunchy snacks that have low carbs, make sure you check out these plantain chips. They come in a variety of flavors. Easy to snack and it’s a healthier option when it comes to chips. This product is non-GMO, vegan and organic.

5 Tips to Staying Positive with Insecurities After Baby

5 Tips to Staying Positive with Insecurities After Baby

Taking care of baby is a lot of fun and hard work at the same time. But taking care of your body and mind after baby can some times feel even harder. In this post, I’m sharing with you 5 tips to staying positive and loving your postnatal body. It’s your ability to stay focused on your baby and yourself to make both of your lives and memories even more beautiful. 

Find out my stories and thoughts in this post.

 

Getting pregnant for the first time was hard. Losing belly fat from pregnancy  is even harder for me especially when I went under the knife for a C-section. There are certain concerns when working out on your abdominal.

I keep complaining to my husband about my pooch. I stressed out over it and end up feeding my stress with comfort food. It’s been almost three months and I have been putting more weight on instead of losing them.

At two months postpartum, we did this photoshoot. My husband spotted a side road area where wildflowers were growing. This spot was gorgeously beautiful with yellow flowers. So we thought why not make it the background of our photos?!

I wore this coral tie front mini dress, tan espadrille platform sandals and a crossbody bag. I have picked a few similar dresses for you below.

The color of my dress contrasted with the bright yellow flowers and the blue sky perfectly. We stopped there for about 10 mins to capture the beautiful nature.

When looking through the photos, all of them are beautiful except my belly that ruined them! I thought to myself, should I not use them on my blog. Should I photoshop my belly out, which I had no idea how to do it.  After a long talk with myself I came to realize that I can’t let a small imperfection stop me from sharing the nature’s beauty to you guys. I shouldn’t stop sharing what I love, creating content, with all of you. So here you go, the photos I picked from the session.

Because I was worry about how I would look, I forgot that I just gave birth to my baby. I almost feed my insecurity by avoiding it.

I think that if you can accept yourself and slowly work on your body and mind, there won’t be anything to stop you from success. If you want to look good, you have to work for it.

Knowing that there’s no success overnight but if you put your mind to it and start working towards it, you will for sure have success in your goals.

To help you deal with and eliminate your postnatal body issues, I shared below the 5 Tips to Staying Positive with Insecurities After Baby.

 

1. KNOW YOUR BODY

You should get to know your new body and mind before you start any workouts or diet plans. Either this is your body after your first, second, third or (put your own number here) baby, you need to get to know your new you. Your body is different every time.

I remembered my body and my mind after my first C-Section, they weren’t the same as this second time around. I felt more stressed out and worried about everything for my first one. My body and mind weren’t synchronized properly. I needed help from my husband when using the bathroom, taking a shower for so many weeks. I didn’t start working out until 6 months later. The recovery time was longer but the pain was less than this time. Weird! I think my mind just couldn’t handle the pain good enough.

With this second time around, I took a shower myself at the hospital at two days after my surgery. At about two week postnatal, I was already working on a campaign. I even climbed up on a ladder but only half way to the top, after realizing I shouldn’t risk falling off the roof only for a pretty picture. I just gave birth via a C-Section, I needed to give my body a break. Plus, having my husband put the ladder up backwards didn’t help either! Lol! 

If you know your body and mind, you will be in control in everything you do. Use this time to get to know your new self and start doing what makes your body and mind comfortable and happy.

2. NEVER COMPARE 

Comparing is harsh. I sometimes second compare myself with others. I know it’s Wrong! You should never want to compare yourself with anyone else with anything. Your life is your life. Their life is theirs. You know what I mean. Even though you might have friends who just gave birth at the same time, or at a closer time to yours, but you aren’t the same person. What works for them, might not work for you. Your mind might be stronger but maybe your body just couldn’t take it. No one is better than the other.

Respect and love your body by stop comparing with others.

Instead of comparing, you can look at them as your inspiration. Ask them for tips and stay connected for support and positive advice. Try to stay away from those who hurt your feelings.

Remember that you know what you’re doing and you are the only person that understands your needs, wants, body, soul and mind.

Seek for inspiring not comparing.  

 

3. BE PATIENT 

It’s good to keep in mind that it will be a long process, no such thing as a success overnight. It took 9 months to grow your tiny baby in you. If you can give yourself at least nine months to get back to your normal pre-baby self again that would be awesome.

Learn to be patient. Take it slow, one day at a time. Take your before photo and a few months later take another photo. At the end of your process, take your after photos to see how far you have come. You will be proud of yourself.

Just remember to be patient.

 

4. LOVE AND CARE 

Do it for you because you love and care for yourself. You have to make yourself happy and healthy first so you sure can take care of your baby and others.

Self care is a big thing these days. Take some time of your day or week to treat yourself with what you love. Either watching a movie, eating your favorite treats, cooking healthy meals, getting a facial, or just taking a nap. You have to feed your mind and body with what you love to stay balanced and happy.

Tell yourself how grateful and loved you are when you wake up and before bed. It’s a good reminder that you deserve everything you want and put your mind to. The strength will keep you going and help you stay on tract.

Love will help you achieve anything. 

.

5. POSITIVE THOUGHTS

Stop complaining and start doing is a big step you should be taking. By having positive thoughts within you, will help you get through the down days. Do you know that the more complaints you have, the more stress you will get? And the more stress you get, the less effective you will be.

Like I mentioned earlier in tip number 2 to surround yourself with positive and inspiring people. It’s so important to surround yourself with good vibes. These can uplift your mind and energy.

When I have negative people around, I tend to feel down and can’t get things done. Sometimes other people’s negative energy can really affect how you feel. For me personally, I pick up bad energy easier than others, even though I’m a super positive person but other bad energy can burn me out.

Trying to avoid negativity and staying positive about your process will take you far. Knowing what you do is good for yourself and will help you love your body and make you proud of yourself even more.

Share with me your thoughts on BODY POSITIVITY:

How are you dealing with your body insecurities?

In conclusion, remember not to push yourself too hard, know your body, never compare and take one step at a time. Always do it for you with love and care in mind. And always start your journey with positive thoughts.

Red Cabbage Baby Gender Predictor

Red Cabbage Baby Gender Predictor

Hi love! I’m finally 39 weeks pregnant and I’m so thankful that I am able to come this far in my pregnancy without any problems along the way.

It’s such a big milestone because I went into the labor and delivery for a checkup at 33 weeks as I was having a lot of contractions and thought I was going to have a preterm labor. But that was in the past, I feel so great now, so we shouldn’t be talking about it anymore. 

This pregnancy I had a chance to visit Japan, explored a new country where I was always dreamed about. That trip was right before I was entering my third trimester. I am glad I took the chance and did not blame the pregnancy for not being able to travel abroad.

I am just beyond thankful and grateful for this healthy pregnancy and that I will be holding my second little angel soon, hopefully in a few days or it might happen tonight! ?

A lot of you have been asking me about the gender of the baby and I kept postponing to do a blog post about it. There’s no more waiting because I’m announcing my baby gender today on the blog.

Over three years ago I filmed a YouTube video about the 11 gender predictors for my daughter. I have a worksheet that you can download from my library and also a blog post talking about each of the old wives tales, feel free to check it out.

Today I decide to use one of the 11 gender predictors and it’s a cabbage test. I forgot to mention that at first my husband and I were thinking about not knowing the gender of the baby. Just to make it more fun and special but we couldn’t help ourselves in the ultrasound room. So we found out the gender of our baby then and it was the right decision we made because our daughter can talk and get to know her little sibling on a deeper level.

How to do the test?

Now let’s get right back into our cabbage test. So what you have to do is to get a red cabbage, cut it then boil it. While waiting for the water to cool down, you can collect your urine.  After you have both cabbage solution and your urine, mix the same amount of them together. Then see what color the mixed solution turns out.

We only used about 1/4 of the whole cabbage.

 


Results

If the color stays the same, that means you are having a GIRL.

If the color changes to pink or purple, that means you are having a BOY.

We did this for the fun of it in my first pregnancy and it predicted right, that we were having a baby girl. So we were doing it again in this second pregnancy and it also gave the right result.

The bottom Q-tip is the color we got after mixing the solution together, which is the same color as the beginning one, only a little bit lighter.

 


What are we having, a boy or a girl?

So the color of my solution turns out the same color which means WE ARE HAVING A BABY GIRL! 

Disclaimer: Beware that this is not a real thing, it isn’t guaranteed the true results. It’s just a fun way to test before you find out what gender your baby is from your physician.

Let’s have fun and no arguing over the results and feel free to share your stories with us in the comments below. ?

So yes we are having another GIRL! I just can’t hold her, love her and care for her just like we do with out oldest daughter.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. See you again soon on my next post.
