3 Vegan Recipes to Kickstart Your Morning

Guest Post by Caroline Vass of AttVaraVass.

Hi, I’m Caroline Vass and I run a food blog called AttVaraVass. My passion is food – real food – and I want to show the world that it’s easy to make great food at home in your own kitchen. It doesn’t have to be complicated nor does it have to be expensive, and your body and mind will thank you for it! 

I want to share my top three favourite breakfasts, vegan style. I recently started to take out dairy from my diet and I find so much fun to experiment with all the non-dairy products available out there. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

If you are anything like me, there is no better feeling for you than committing to a skincare routine that leaves you confident and refreshed.

These are the products I currently use in my nighttime skincare routine. I have carefully picked products that are affordable and good quality. It is very important to me to mainly use products that are vegan and cruelty free. Click on the name of any of the products to shop!

  1. Pacifica Beauty – Coco Pure Makeup Removing Wipes
    100% Vegan + Cruelty Free
    I just have to say: I LOVE Pacifica Beauty products. These Coconut milk infused natural towelettes are a dream for removing makeup at the end of your day. With jojoba oil and aloe vera, they are gentle and perfect for my sensitive skin.
  2. Pacifica Beauty – Sea Foam Complete Face Wash
    100% Vegan + Sulfate/Cruelty Free
    Not only is this product absolutely gorgeous, it is hands down my favorite face wash ever! After I use it, my face feels so clean and soft. I could use this one product and nothing else for my entire skincare routine! Great for all skin types.
  3. Acure Organics – Brightening Facial Scrub
     100% Vegan + Sulfate/Paraben Free + Cruelty Free
    Continuing with my ocean product theme, this scrub includes chlorella and argan extract. It totally brightens and smooths skin, and is ideal for all skin types! Acure is an awesome brand – love their haircare items as well!
  4. Aveeno – Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer
    Oil Free + Hypoallergenic
    This moisturizer is great for acne-prone skin types. Thanks to the salicylic acid, it really works for a clear complexion!
  5. Alba Botanica – Hawaiian Moisture Cream
       Vegetarian + Sulfate/Paraben/Artifical Color Free + Cruelty Free
    I love all Alba products! I have been using this moisture cream for years. I love using it as a night cream. It leaves your skin feeling so soft and moisturized.

The Best Pitaya Smoothie Ever

Pitaya Smoothie

This is literally my favorite smoothie EVER! The best part is that it is so easy to make.
Pitaya (AKA Dragonfruit) is so delicious! If you haven’t had it before, it is somewhat similar to watermelon but milder. It’s full of iron, magnesium, fiber, antioxidants, and so much more! I am convinced that it kept my immune system strong throughout the last holiday season, as I never got sick and I was drinking these multiple times a week. It’s my go-to ingredient now!
