Hey people!

Since weve had a tremendous amount of rain and wind the last few days, I've had a lot of time to do research, go to the gym and rest up (When I am not biking to work trying to survive a full on rain storm haha)
However. Todays topic will be one of latest obsessions and favourites. Mono-meals!
For those of you who are completely new to the term I will quickly explain:

As I am mainly a raw vegan at the moment (meaning obviously no animal products, but also not heating anything you eat above 48 degrees celsius) I came across mono-meals a little while ago. People who eat mono meals eat one typ of food for a meal. or example only bananas for breakfast, only mangos for lunch, only orange juice for dinner etc etc. You get the deal. I have been trying it for a little bit, and oh lordy do I feel amazing! Its not recommended to do it all the time, or every single meal, but I find it so good for my stomach to do it every now and then. The benefits are so many!

  • Easiest meals to digest (kind to your tummy)
  • It forces you to eat better quality foods
  • Its a lot harder to over eat
  • Optimal absorption of nutrients

My stomach has never felt better! Since going vegan I am barely ever bloated or have stomach pains, not even after BIG meals. With a mono meal every now and then, I feel even better!
I do prefer to have breakfast as a mono meal, but occasionally I do lunch too. You just have to find what work for you! And when I say I only eat bananas for breakfast (like I did today) I do not mean 2 bananas. I mean a lot. Eat to you are fully satisfied and full. Your body will tell you when to stop. Even the taste and texture in our mouth when you are eating will change and you wont be enjoying it as much after a while, and thats your body's way of saying, thats enough :) trust your signals! I devoured so many mangoes for lunch today. Best lunch ever! Let me know what you think!

This i me. Sophia. I am a Sweden-Born independent little viking living in paradise on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. Turning 26 in less than a month but feeling younger and more alive then I ever have. A few years ago I packed my bags and left my hometown of Stockholm, Sweden. Since then, I am on the run. Its funny though, that something that has been a part of you for so many years, no longer feel like home. I don't miss Sweden. At all. I miss everyone, friends, family, cats, dogs etc etc. But I dont particularly miss the country of Sweden. To be honest, I have always felt that there was something out there in the world waiting for me. And I guess that leads me on to the next chapter about me as a person.

For 13 years I struggled with an eating disorder, Anorexia Nervosa, in and out of clinics and hospitals. I was sick for so long that I started to identify myself with my illness. Long story short. I eventually got out of the worst, and slowly started to get back to "Sophia". However, I still struggles to find balance, and, to be honest, I wasnt happy at all. I mean, I was, but at the same time I wasnt. I was still struggling so bad with accepting myself, feeling comfortable. Then I found; VEGANISM. It has literally changed my life. I am never going to be the "preaching one", telling everyone they have to vegan etc etc. Id much rather be a billboard for how happy, healthy, fit and balanced I feel nowadays. I am at the best place, mentally (And physically) that i have ever been! I surround myself with people who bring the best out of me, I spend most of my time in the sun, I keep my diet plantbased, cruelty free, highly raw and always colourful. I have discovered an awareness and happiness I never thought I would experience. The amount of people I have seen "THRIVE" from going vegan, changing their lifestyle or simply just changing their mindsets, is incredible. It feels like I have found a secret, and here I am, to share it with you!

Are you ready to Thrive?!
xoxo Sophia
