A whole lot of folks have gone on vegan diets to lose weight and then felt so good about themselves they couldn’t imagine going back to the way they were eating. The animals used for food mattered to them now when they hadn’t given them a thought before. Or were afraid to give them a thought.
Here’s a testimony for ya.
The Helen story
My former mother-in-law Helen said she would never give up meat and dairy. NEVER. She basically lived on big greasy breakfasts, cheeseburgers and french fries with 2 or 3 cans of cola at a time, meatloaf and mashed potatoes smothered in gravy, and gallons and gallons of ice cream. Never ate fruit, little to no veg, weighing in just over 200 lbs.
Since Helen would eat whatever was put in front of her even at my house — that meant vegan food, right? I am sure that is the only time she saw or ate a vegetable or piece of fruit. But over the years she got to liking it and preferring it so much to what she ate out and at home, she finally made the switch, overnight, at the snap of her fingers, and never looked back. Totally remade her life.
Helen now weighs 140 lbs, maybe a little less now she has gone back to playing tennis. She doesn’t want to go back to horse riding again which she always said she would if she could get enough weight off. Instead she volunteers weekly at a local horse rescue. Heavens how she loves those horses. And they her. Dear Helen.
“This is not your average fruit salad by any means. Creamy, delicious fruit salad bursting with sweetness and a hints of vanilla flavor,” says Megan, the recipe’s creator. Boy are we with you there! And this is NOT your average fruit salad.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
- Greek yogurt
- Coconut Milk
- Vanilla Extract
- Stevia (optional)
- Pumpkin Seeds
You can use coconut milk in a can or the refrigerated kind. Either works! I prefer the canned as it’s a bit thicker than refrigerated and has fewer additives.
HOW TO MAKE IT
- Place the Greek yogurt, coconut milk, vanilla and stevia in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Note, if the mixture is too thick add another 1-2 tablespoons of milk and blend again.
- Transer the berries to a large mixing bowl then pour the yogurt mixture over the berries. Stir to combine. Stir in optional pumpkin seeds for crunch!
- Chill in the refrigerator 20 minutes then enjoy! Recipe keeps up to 5 days.
Peace, love and horses.
