Easy Vegan Healthy Eating on the Go!
Summer is almost here!
Time for Potato Salad!
Potato salad is one of my favorite summer foods and it is SO easy to make.
…but don’t break the rule:
The potatoes must be cold before adding the rest.
I like my potato salad creamy, so to do this, mash them when they’re hot, then cool them before adding the rest. For anyone who has tried making it in a hurry, you will know why. Simply put: it goes slimy: especially if you are using a mayonnaise type dressing. The trick is to cook them, cool a bit, put them the in fridge overnight, then they’re perfect the next day. Have some on hand.
If I’m not in a hurry I make my own dressing, but this is the fastest way and it tastes great.

Mix until it tastes right. You will know it tastes right because you won’t be able to stop eating it. Add sea salt if needed.
If you want to take the time add chopped green onions, radishes, and/or celery.
All you need is a cucumber and some humus, a great big juicy watermelon, and you have an easy nutritious meal fit for a king. Or a queen!
Did you know it makes us feel happy when we eat healthy foods?
…especially foods we enjoy?
Scripture even says so in Acts 14:17:
“Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.” NIV
Isn’t God great!
So…until next time…
Tip # 10 Eating slowly and enjoying your meals creates healthy digestion!
Easy Vegan Healthy Eating on the Go! by Deb Powell
My 15 year food journey has caused my taste buds to come alive and to anticipate new foods. I have lost weight, corrected health issues, and I’ve learned how important diet really is. Reading everything I could get my hands on truly opened my eyes to the evils of the food industry and how it is making us overweight and sick. I am in my 50’s and I am healthy, I take no medication, and I look more than 10 years younger than I am (so everyone says). The healthier we are now, the healthier we’ll be in our later years.
I came to be vegan one step at a time by gradually eliminating foods. Starting with; sea food, then meat, foul and fish, then eggs and dairy, all the while cutting out most processed foods, and totally eliminating pop. Then I went mostly raw, learned about juicing and smoothies, cut out most sugars, and I am now gluten free.
What’s left you ask? Mmmm….. I saved the best for last: lots and lots of vegetables with sides of legumes and grains, nuts and seeds, and fruit. I never go hungry.
There are many people living healthy vegan lifestyles today and they have created ways of making healthy alternatives for just about any food you could want.
