Hey guys! I feel like I’ve been MIA for a bit… but for a very good reason! I am FINALLY releasing my guide this Friday, November 14th and I can’t wait to share!!! It’s been a long time coming, and it’s almost here!!!!!
It’s called ‘The Glow Effect’! I’ve dedicated a page to it with more information and a sneak peek inside! Check it out here! If you follow me on instagram, you will know I’ve been recipe testing and cooking up a storm (like a crazy person), adding the final touches to this guide so today, I’m letting Amanda from RawManda take over!
I’ve been following Amanda on instagram ever since I started my insta account for The Glowing Fridge. She has the most beautiful pictures, seriously! Amanda has been thriving on a raw foods plant based diet. She eats fully raw and I knew I had to interview her and share it with you, as we can all be inspired to incorporate more raw foods into our life! And if we make she’s having, we will be eating an abundance of beautifully delicious food. She recently started her blog where she shares recipes for her inspiring creations, I’ve already made her raw, nut-free brownies a few times now. Let’s get to it so I can get back to finishing my guide 🙂
Meet the beautiful Amanda!
How yummy does this chocolate and dragonfruit nana ice cream look though?! Seriously! Photo from her insta page
Hi Amanda! Tell us about yourself and your journey to becoming raw vegan.
Do you incorporate specific superfoods everyday? What are your go-to’s?
What are some of the benefits that you have noticed since changing your diet to raw vegan?
The best digestion and elimination! Being “regular” might be a topic that’s TMI for some people, but it’s a fact of life and we all experience it. I love feeling like my body is working properly and nothing is unpredictable. I wake up, drink a glass of water and go to the bathroom.. every single day. When you love your body by giving it the foods it needs, it will love you back.
How do you manage staying raw during the workday? Do you bring lunches and snacks?
Who motivates you to live fully raw and where do you find recipe inspiration?!
Your instagram success comes as no surprise, you truly are an artist and photographer all in one! Do you have any tips for building a following on social media?
What are your favorite Instagram accounts that you follow?
There are seriously so many talented people on Instagram who are unbelievably creative! I have so many favorites but here are a few that I really love: @feltbyheart, @eat_to_thrive, @nourishbynature, @flourishinghealth, @livepurejenna, @the_peachy_pear, @dehappy5_mama, @lonijane, @pureveganfood
Will you share what you typically eat on a normal day?
- Breakfast: In-season fruit mono-meal, my favorite would have to be 2-3 ripe mangoes or if I have time in the morning, a simple green smoothie with spinach/kale, almond milk and bananas!
- Snacks: Dates, dried figs, mulberries
- Lunch: Nana ice cream (about 6 frozen bananas blended) with fresh fruit toppings.
- Dinner: Zoodles (spiralized zucchini noodles), homemade dressing/sauce usually made from blended fruit, chopped veggies, fruits and a few nuts/seeds.
How has your beauty regimen changed and do you have any products or natural beauty tips that you can’t live without?
What is the easiest and the hardest thing about living fully raw?
