Tasty Tuesday

I'm introducing a new mini series for the spring and summer called "Tasty Tuesday". Each Tuesday I will post a new food item I found or a new restaurant I have tried currently or in the past. I want your feedback on "Tasty Tuesday" if it's a good idea or not. 

The first post of this series kicks off with my mothers dinner that she made me about two weeks ago, upon request she made it will little or no oil while baking my dish. She infused rosemary and garlic into the oil she did use to make my food. What was made is a dish full of roasted vegetables, it had green beans,potatoes,onion and much more in it. It was the best in my option!!


It was a very filling dish that my mother made for me, I will try to get her recipe for the infused olive oil because it was the best part of the dish. I'm not a fan of oil in any of my food since it aggravates my roseaca in my face and flares it up. So until next Tasty Tuesday...have a great week.

Learning the meaning of balance

I may not be the best blogger in the world or even consistent at it either. I have learned a few things over the past few months about balancing my work life and personal life plus this blog. Southern Purple Vegan got put aside until now, I took on new responsibilities and moved departments at my current job. The position I have new required my full attention during my training and to this day at times it will require my full attention.

Even though I haven't blogged in a while it's still something I like doing, it's a creative outlet. I recently have been eating a more raw diet, because it's been so hot plus humid in the building I work at. That eating a fresh non cooked meals at work made more sense than eating something cooked. My meals may show up on here from time to time that I take to work, but mostly this blog is about my weight loss journey and healthy recipes plus food.

Since last year I have declined in blogging but have not declined in my regime of getting healthy I have maintained my current weight for a year with out gain more than 7 pounds and losing it. Needless to say I might be randomly posting at times when it's easy for me, at times there may be a gap in my blogging. So needless to say welcome to Southern Purple Vegan...oh here are some of my random moments of work from the past 6 months.


Random things you find in a drawer at a work.


Free coffee from a customer to all the employees working outside when cold.


Serious mix up on a order at work, who orders a coin operated dryer.

Need Red Bull?
