Veggielicious Adventures: The Martin Family
We absolutely love the positive attitude of The Veggielicious family; a health-conscious family of 4 who enjoy good (largely plant-based) food, and most importantly, aim to live a life full of love, laughter and feel good vibes. They share their green lifestyle tips and amazing recipes over on their blog, Veggielicious. We can't wait to try their Raw Moringa Cupcakes!
We caught up with the family to find out a little more about them:
Describe yourself in a sentence...We are a veggielicious plant-based pescetarian family with Polish and African roots, living in Sweden, who want to inspire people to live more with their heart and spread love around like confetti, creating food magic.
Our love for food began...2011 because both our daughters were diagnosed with food intolerances and mum Anna was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) and Myalgia. We switched to a plant-based, gluten-free, dairy-free and pescetarian diet overnight.
Our idea of food heaven is...Raw cheesecakes in different flavours with delicious toppings shared with the whole family and morning green smoothies to give us a great start to the day.
Our Feel Good tips...
- Hug often
- Exercise because it's fun not because you have to
- Drink lots of water
- Get enough sleep
- Eat lots of fruit and veggies
- "Laugh your pants off" once in a while
- Be positive
We are inspired by...People with passion that dare to go after their dreams. We are also inspired by how healthy real food and the power of happiness and love can make us feel good and reduce symptoms of illness. This makes us want to read, learn more and inspire others to live a lifestyle true to their heart, body and soul.
Baobab or moringa?
Moringa all the way. As a mostly plant-based family, we think it's amazing that Moringa is such a nutrient-dense plant that contains a lot of protein. It's good for boosting our everyday meals and for bringing some fairy dust to our smoothies and desserts.
