I was just talking to a friend ysdty about how at one point, I was ONLY ever in black and white. My hair was even white! Now, I feel my wardrobe is reflecting who I am at this point in my life: vibrant, open, and soft - def not words I’d use 3-4 years ago (just go all the way back on my feed & you’ll see!) As β€˜superficial’ fashion and clothing can be, it is how we express our inner selves to the world. So I guess, one’s wardrobe is a diagnostic of who you are (or at least who you want to portray to the world). What do your clothes say about you? SHARE belowπŸ‘‡πŸ½πŸ‘‡πŸ½πŸ‘‡πŸ½πŸ‘‡πŸ½

So I haven’t drank alcohol for what seems like forever now (a choice I made when I was at my unhealthiest). Yes it was awkward at first (esp at industry parties) but it forced me to face my insecurities in large groups & really own who I am - which is s c a r y. To be sober & yes, lean into social awkwardness is one of the greatest ongoing lessons of my life. Btw how great is this drank? It’s zero alcohol & in one of the cutest bars in Greenpoint!

Ever wonder how to bake the PERFECT carrot? Pre-Steam for 5-10 mins (or until 1/2 cooked) then dry, sauce, and bake at 375F for 20mins. The carrots will be tender, sweet & crispy. I topped mine w sesame seeds, black and white tahini, vegan greek yogurt, & shiso leaves πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯• #betacarotene

~ UNMASKING ~ Shedding layers of β€˜identity’ ascribed to us either by family and/or society is scary, but also exhilarating. The closer you get to your true core, your ESSENCE - the closer you get to your Divine Self. The Self that is ageless, indestructible and capable of A N Y T H I N G. So, start peeling, be curious, let go and see what comes up. Ask yourself today: WHO AM I? and sit with that question. Share what u feel with us 🧑🧑🧑 #VanessaWantsToKnow

Is there anything better than fresh, juicy, tomatoes laid out in the sun? I lay mine out on the porch for a day, and they get perfectly smooshable for salads, toasts & more. PS - did my own nails, an ode to iced latte season πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ’¦

Last night at a party I was asked a really good question (one that many of u ask me). How do you work in digital and maintain a healthy relationship to yourself? Answer: it’s HARD AF. Over the yrs I’ve developed rules to keep myself in line: 1. Phone curfew at 9PM every night - ie I don’t use my phone until the next AM 2. Monitor screen time using app built into iPhone - it’s scary at one point I was on my phone 10+ hrs a day. Now I’m down to 3-4 3. Dedicate 1 hr every day to Instagram and don’t go over. 4. One day a week, leave my phone at home and go out. It’s FUN! And gives me so much peace of mind It’s no secret we are all addicted to our phones (esp when our work rely on it) but we can take small steps to TAKE BACK our dominion over our lives and time. How do you keep your balance? #Vanessawantstoknow

While on silent retreat we ate something v similar to this every day: Overnight Turmeric Rose Oats! Recipe Below: 1 cup gluten free rolled oats 2 cups water for soaking 1.5 cup plant based mylk 2 dried figs diced (or any dry fruit works) 1 TBSP dried rose petals 1 cardamom pod crushed 1 tsp turmeric (I recc @diasporaco) Dash of black pepper Dash of cinnamon Technique: 1. First soak oats overnight in water, then drain in AM (this is to improve digestion + nutrient bioavailability; you can skip this step but I’ve noticed it makes a difference for me) 2. Add plant mylk + all ingred and soak for another day (or at least 5 hrs) PLACE IN FRIDGE 1. When ready, garnish with fruit, seeds, nut butters (whatever you dance!) 2-3 servings
