Did you make the mistake of blinking and now you realize July is gone? It’s okay, me too. There are many things going on in August so let’s jump right in with the monthly happenings.




It’s VEDA time again. If you don’t know what the VEDAs are it is Vlog Every Day in April/August. Last April I attempted to do the VEDAs but on day 2 I almost burned the house down and was just over it. (Check out my Fire Safety post for some fire safety tips). But I’m ready to jump back on the saddle and try it again. I’ve collaborated with some awesome black food bloggers to bring to you #VEDABlack. Every day we will have a cooking demo on Facebook Live. I’ve never done Facebook Live before so I’m excited and nervous for my turn, which will be Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017 @ 7 pm.

Why VEDABlack and not VEDAfood or what not? Well, I’ve been networking and expanding my horizons in the food blogging, nutrition, dietetics world and there’s always a recurring theme or thought that pops up in my head… Where is the diversity? There are so many different types of foods, cultures, and food bloggers but when you think of food blogging there’s this stereotype of a young 20-something blonde who lives in California. #VEDABlack is a chance to challenge that stereotype and show that like our palates food bloggers are very diverse. Without veering off too much representation matters…


Be sure to check out my very first Facebook Live cooking demos:

  • Tea time!
  • I swear almost every time I drink this brand of water I get bubble guts. Smh (I know probably tmi but I'm a Dietitian and πŸ’© talk comes with the territory) 
My body is finally starting to adapt to whatever it was that didn't agree with me. 🍢 
Anyhoo, staying hydrated is extremely important during travelling. With all the running around trying to catch the planes trains and buses( and fear of violent stomach craps) I haven't been drinking enough water. and I can tell because I'm starting to have some dehdration symptoms: dry mouth fatigie, headache etc.

So here I am guzzling down this volcanic purified water praying that it doesn't ruin my travels! Lol

  • I only get these fancy juices at the airport when traveling. I know that I'm probably going to eat out a lot and it may not necessarily be the healthiest of foods. Knowing that I'm starting my vacay with a healthy nutrient packed juice makes me feel like I'm preparing for success. Plus I refuse to spend $5+ on a drink I can get for half of the price at my local deli. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
This  juice has a strong beet flavor (eww) I read it wrong and was hoping it was more carrot flavor. But oh well bottoms up!

  • Is it too late to say hello August? 😁 It's only been a week and this month has been action packed for me. #vedaBLACK is going on and strong. At my job I'm interim manager until they find a replacement for my old boss. I'm going away for a couple of weeks and with all the running around my shoulder is still hurting a bit. 🍬
Because I can't walk and chew gum at the same time I haven't been posting on the website as much as I should. Don't worry I'm still Saluting! 🍢I'm swamped with ideas from all the amazing opportunities I've been having the past couple of months. And I can't wait to share with you all. 🍡
I'll be back in September full throttle! So until then check out the site for oldies but goodies, come back here for updates about my trip, or check out my lifestyle travel blog @doyousalut 
Until next time,
