Koya Webb's Each day Recipes

I believe that your body carries your soul and essence while you are on earth – so it is important to treat it properly and that means eating healthy, getting regular exercise, and getting plenty of sleep.

Fifteen years ago, I realized that I felt so much better and more alive when I skipped processed foods and ate foods from the earth instead. Although I grew up in the south and learned to eat whatever in front of me, I've transitioned to a vegan, plant-based diet to support my optimal health and the health of the planet – and I've never looked back.

For anyone looking to incorporate healthier eating habits into their lifestyle, I recommend adding more plant-based foods to your diet while reducing the amount of processed foods you consume.

I like to cook for variety, special occasions or just for friends – but I eat two things every day: a smoothie and a salad. I think a smoothie is the best way to mix vitamins, nutrients, and treats in one glass. I have one for breakfast or as a snack or meal replacement and I like to experiment with a mix of fruits, superfoods, and protein powders. I often drink a green smoothie in the morning for an extra boost of energy to start my day – I've listed my recipe below.

For lunch or dinner, I enjoy a salad because it's a great way to add more veggies to my day. I start with a base of leafy vegetables; My favorite is kale. Then I pick about five vegetables (or mix them with a combination of vegetables and fruits), add some protein (like lentils or nuts), and sprinkle some seeds on top for a little crunch.
