ust because the temperature
outside is soaring (we're

have to have a summer fuelled
with only crunchy salads, fruity quinoas,

let’s be honest, when it comes to finding
happiness in food, reaching for a fresh
lettuce isn’t going to be your first port
of call.
Let’s talk summer soul food — the
kind of dishes that meet your eyes and
make you think ‘that looks carbolicious
but I don’t even care because the
happiness that hearty food is going to
release will make every calorie worth
it.’ And you haven’t even got to justify
When there’s a shortage of sunshine — eat your heart out it because science is fully behind you.

y whole family and I were all inspired to go vegan by my uncle.
We transitioned from vegetarian to vegan together. We had a
lot of fun with it and always got excited when we veganised
something different for the first time. For example, my dad loves
enchiladas and that was one of the first vegan meals we made (which
were super bomb). I am thankful that I have transitioned to a vegan

Eating a plant-based diet makes me feel invigorated. I love eating

Meal Plan
Breakfast:
Smoothie bowls are a personal favourite way to kick
start my day. My smoothie base changes from berry to
cacao, but I always add fresh fruit, nuts and granola. Or,
oatmeal with superfoods is another way I choose to start
my day.

Lunch:
Acai bowl made from frozen acai berries, banana cacao,
maca, almonds, coconut milk and 2 cups of ice. Or, I’ll have
a quinoa and veggie bowl. This is basically quinoa with my
favourite seasonal veg.

Dinner:
My dinner varies from pho to a curry, or veggie stir fry.
I really enjoy the natural seasonings and flavourings in
Asian, Indian and Chinese cuisines. Plus they are a great
way to combine plant-based protein with carbs that are a
good source of slow-releasing energy.
