About a year ago, I came across an incredibly inspiring account on Instagram. The account is Stephanie Yu’s @happyhealthy96. As I am already committed to eating “Raw Till Four” and following Kimberly Snyder’s Beauty Detox Solution principles, I completely relate to her high raw lifestyle. She not only inspires me to eat more fruit and consume less fat, but also reminds me of why I am living a healthy lifestyle. Stephanie is well-informed and communicates effectively in an warm, passionate, and honest way through her YouTube videos, Instagram and blog posts, and eBook. Her eBook entitled, Living a Happy and Healthy Life, is beautifully written and is the ultimate guide for those who are transitioning to or already eating a high carb, low fat (hclf) vegan diet. It is also for those who want to incorporate more raw foods into their existing diet, or for those who eat “Raw Till Four.”
With Living a Happy and Healthy Life, Stephanie covers the basics of why a vegan diet is optimal for our health and why a low-fat, high-raw vegan diet is optimal for good health in a scientific way. Not only is our consumption of certain whole foods essential to living a happy and healthy life, we learn that health is an all-encompassing concept for the wellness of our being, including our physical and mental health. I appreciate the fact that Stephanie draws from her own experiences and through scientific explanations she explains how one can achieve overall wellness. In addition, her photos are beautiful and help us see how we can still and should eat in abundance and deliciously in this lifestyle.
I recommend reading Living a Happy and Healthy Life. It contains essential information needed to embrace and thrive on a high carb, low fat lifestyle. Stephanie is very encouraging for new and existing vegans and for those who want to prepare and cook simple delicious meals. Her recipes are detailed, oil-free, low-fat, delicious, easy to make, and, of course, full of nutrition!
Stephanie is super informative, fun, and friendly in her writing. You will love how genuine and passionate she is about what she shares and be inspired by her experiences to live a more healthful life.
With this said, I’ll close with an excerpt fromLiving a Happy and Healthy Life,
“I came from a past of being underweight so this high carb vegan diet helped bring me to a healthy weight. So whether you’re under or overweight, the beauty of this diet and lifestyle is that it’s healing and optimal for everyone, and it will help restore you to your healthy weight. The reason I refer to this diet also as a lifestyle is because health is not determined simply by what you eat. There are a multitude of other factors that weigh in on someone’s overall health. This truly is a way of life, not a temporary detox diet; please try to keep that in mind. Your decision to eat healthy and live healthy should be a life long decision, and alife long journey.” – Stephanie Yu
