Get ready to witness history because next Saturday at 12 noon Pacific Time we’re doing our first ever LIVE FUCKERY.

When we first started sending out Saturday emails a couple years ago, there were three people who got them. Luanne, my mom and myself.

Yes, I signed up to get my own emails. Three is better than two, right? Today there are over 10,600 of you who start your Saturday with my potty mouth in your inbox (I could take that in lot of directions, but I’m biting my tongue and staying focused).

Next Saturday, instead of reading my potty mouth, you will get to watch it live.

I humbly invite you to join me next Saturday at 12 noon Pacific Time for this live Fuckery event via video broadcast.

100 Percent Does NOT Equal Zero Percent + Instant Pot Plant Based Carrot Ginger Soup

12_whole_food_plant_based_coconut_carrot_ginger_soup_side_shot_2

The process of changing the diet and going from eating like you give zero fucks, to eating like a rabbit who gives lots of fucks, can be tricky business. There are numerous things that can trip you up along the way – fear, false information, excuses, addiction to crappy food- these can all come into play and work against your badass, plant eating efforts.

But one of the things I see most often that leads directly to self-sabotage is the all or nothing mindset. It’s an easy mindset to slip into and once you’re there, it’s like trying to get out of quicksand, but the quicksand is made out of peanut butter. And there’s also jelly. You’re basically stuck in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

G-Spot, Tacos & Iron + Whole Food Plant Based Creamy Mint Dressing

9_whole_food_plant_based_mint_dressing_salad_top_shot_2

Today’s Fuckery is all about iron.

Now – off the top of my head I can think of at least six things that are way more fun to chat about.

  1. Cat pants
  2. My live training on the 18th of this month all about demystifying the Instant Pot.
  3. Cats
  4. My cats
  5. Tacos
  6. The fact that tacocat spelled backwards still spells tacocat #mindblown

Iron is far from this list. But before you roll your eyes with boredom and click out of this post – hold on. I have a knack for making complicated, boring shit less complicated and less boring, so give me a chance. I’ll make this painless and interesting.

There’s no Magic in Perfect + Quick and Easy Hummus From Canned Beans

whole_food_plant_based_quick_hummus_11

You know that voice in your head?

The one that constantly tells you that you aren’t good enough.

The one that’s quick to remind you that you could be doing SO much better.

The one that insists that even when you do your best, it still doesn’t cut it.

The voice that clearly thinks you’re shit, regardless of how much progress you’ve made and everything you’ve overcome to get there.

Top 10 Minimally Processed Plant Foods and What to Do with Them + Instant Pot Biryani Rice

whole_food_plant_based_instant_pot_biyrani_rice_8_0

People tend to overcomplicate shit, especially when it comes to eating lots of plants.

When you switch to eating a Whole Food Plant Based diet, there are six categories of food that you will eat from:

  1. Veggies
  2. Fruit
  3. Beans and Legumes
  4. Whole Grains
  5. Nuts and Seeds
  6. Minimally processed plant foods made with ingredients from the above five categories.

Easy enough.

Next up. There are two categories of food that you will eliminate when boarding the Whole Food Plant Based train (don’t worry, you can exit the train any time. It will even stop for you so you don’t have to jump off mid journey and get punched by the ground).

The foods that won’t be making an appearance while on this train are:

  1. Animal based foods
  2. Processed foods (vegan or not)

People are generally familiar with veggies, fruit, beans and legumes, whole grains and nuts and seeds. Minimally processed plant foods on the other hand can be a little like the hair on the uppermost part of my thigh – is it meant to be leg hair or pubic hair? Who really knows. It’s confusing.
