Best Lifers: Eat

Best Lifers: Eat

Best Lifer. Definition: One who lives every day better than the one before. A seizer of opportunity, love, happiness and adventure. In short, a Best Lifer kicks major butt and isn’t afraid to break things, get messy and live happily. Every. Darn. Day.

As the Digital Engagement Coordinator here at Vega, I have the opportunity to stay on the pulse of our entire online community and the many rad ways they’re living their best lives. This exposure has inspired me to run faster, eat brighter and seriously smile more!

There are quite a few folk who know what’s up in the kitchen and have left me wishing for a future where taste-o-gram is a thing. Here’s what five of them have to say about what it means to live their best life:

Tori @NutritionUnlocked

“Living my Best Life is about living a life of balance. It’s about finding the things you are passionate about doing that nourish your mind, body, and soul. A big part of that for me is eating nutritious foods to power an active lifestyle, and of course creating delicious recipes with healthy ingredients!”

Best Life Eats

Viola @thesunshineeatery

“My inspiration comes from various cuisines, being born Chinese but growing up in Europe. There are also a few fantastic fellow foodies on Instagram or food blogs that inspire me on a daily basis. Living your best life to me is the awareness of how to be good to myself and my body through the nourishing foods I eat and to take control over my health and quality of life.”

I live my best life with a mantra of ‘small steps… huge hope’. I have hopes of achieving some pretty big things but am happy taking relatively small waves to get there. So far it seems to work!”

Zoé @maca.damia

“I’m passionate about food and especially fascinated by its power. My grandma always said to take care of your body and she will take care of you. The way I now feel thanks to my plant-based lifestyle is something I wish everyone could experience, and I hope to inspire others as much as I’ve been

Ali @insyncherbivore

“To me living my best life means continuing to learn and grow. If you embrace change with an open mind and love in your heart, every day becomes a new chance to become a better version of yourself. It keeps life exciting! Push yourself to play and play often.”
