My response to this.
Thin privilege is this series of advertisements encouraging fat people to give up on hobbies and instead use all their spare time striving to be thin.
I started my weightloss journey in June 2012 with eating clean, drinking only water and exercising every day for about 10 minutes. I was jumping rope and 10 min was all I could do at my HW. After about two weeks I started increasing the time of my workouts and by the end of August I was skipping for about 40 minutes a day. By the end of September I lost about 35 lbs. When I got back to school in October, I got a gym membership and I went for my first Zumba fitness class. Man, was I tired, I thougt I’d die that day but at the same time I fell in love with it and this is what I continue doing to this day. Zumba, Zumba Sentao, Zumba toning, you name it :) It helped me to shed another 20+ lbs and it’s changing my body for the better, and most important- now I love working out so much that I cannot imagine a day without it! :)

vegan asparagus and mushroom tart
puff pastry ( pepperidge farm brand is vegan!) filled with caramelized red onions and mushrooms, asparagus, and trader joes vegan mozzarella. topped with an agave- mustard glaze and thinly sliced tomatoes.
I love everything you choose to be.
My dad was a little obsessed with the cauliflower rice I made the other night. He bought 2 huge cauliflowers and begged me to make them for him before I went back to school. Since I had to do them in 3 separate batches, I figured I’d prepare them all in different ways.
I riced the cauliflower by pulsing the florets in the blender (filled up with water) and then drained it as much as possible. I cooked it on HIGH over the stove so that it avoided getting mushy.
Cauliflower Egg Fried Rice
- Add a little bit of butter and garlic into a pan and sautee
- When butter is hot, add cauliflower
- Crack 2 eggs in the pan and scramble it with the cauliflower
- Add some chopped veggies and soy sauce to taste
- Voila. I didn’t have any ready to go, but you could probably add chicken, beef, tofu, shrimp, etc…
Cauliflower Italian Rice
- Heat up olive oil and garlic in a pan
-When hot, add cauliflower
- Season with your favourite spices. I did salt, oregano, parsley, basil, and salt. Easy peasy.
Cauliflower Coconut Rosemary Rice
- Heat up coconut oil with garlic and fresh chopped rosemary
- Add cauliflower and add salt to taste.
- DONE. This one has a really nice coconut taste from the coconut oil, but its not too overpowering.
My family’s verdict: The coconut rosemary was the favourite. It was different and light. The egg fried rice one came second. I really want to try this with some shrimp and chicken.
ALSO it should be noted that my youngest sister ate this. She usually refuses to eat vegetables. Do yourself a favour and give it a try.
