What we eat plays a major part in how we age inside and out. It’s important to follow a healthy, nutritious diet and it doesn’t have to be boring either! Instagram is a great place to get the motivation and the ideas you need to eat well with an exciting diet.
The social media is absolutely jam-packed with foodies posting stunningly framed images of elaborate meals, all of which are placed on neat photogenic backgrounds. It’s become a convention. This is great but which do you follow?!

Meeting some friends for lunch and I'm bringing food so I wanted a meal I could prep ahead and take warm: Roasted honeynut squash with pomegranate seeds, almonds, goats cheese and balsamic, slow cooked chicken and lentils (see my story), quinoa, and an arugula salad with pomegranate seeds, pistachios and a raspberry balsamic dressing. (Blended raspberries, raw honey, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, Dijon).

(Mississippi Vegan takeover, 4/5) Supper time! Here is one of my many versions of a macro bowl, Mississippi Vegan style as I only use the prettiest veggies. I recently moved from NYC to Jackson, MS, and I knew the first thing I would have to do after relocating here was to find the local farmers’ market. (I would go to the one in Union Square [Manhattan] two to three times a week!) I was tickled to find loads of beautiful plants at the one here in Jackson. For example these purple and watermelon radishes. I kept the tops on and sautéed them in a cast iron with olive oil, garlic, and sea salt. And how about these purple and white sweet potatoes. They were just roasted in the oven until soft. Do you see that deep purple color? I can't! Next up are sautéed brussels sprouts. All of these veggies are loaded on top of turmeric-cayenne infused rice. To finish, a drizzle on top of tahini, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, and sea salt. I also snagged a few viola petals from my front porch because, why not? — @mississippivegan #osgtakeover
