1st meal i've made in 2 months {aka: the best salad ever} | today marks an incredible milestone in my recovery. my surgeon finally cleared me to slowly start putting weight on my injured leg again (while continuing w/ crutches, for now). it's a scary, painful, & completely bewildering process to begin leaning to walk again, but i'll do whatever i have to in order to keep moving forward... one thing's for sure: the 1st thing i did upon being able to place my foot on the ground was get my ass into the kitchen! salad, though simple, was the perfect way to get into the swing of things again. so, okay, maybe i need the counter to hold me up, & i can't move w/o being 99% sure my leg will snap, but "standing" in the kitchen while chopping up lettuce & dicing an avocado & has never felt more glorious.

katrin_locc : 😘❀
veggieterrain : Thanks a million! @craftyangie I've definitely missed Instagramming! 😱 You're the best for sending me positive vibes! ❀️
veggieterrain : Oh man, @khansis! 😱 I'm so sorry that you had to go through this, too. I keep saying that I wouldn't even wish it on Dick Cheney! πŸ˜‚ I can't imagine going a whole year... I'm 2 months in & just now able to bear weight, which makes a huge difference, as I'm sure you know. Which part of your leg did you break? Mine's the tibial plateau (+ a torn meniscus πŸ™ˆ). I have a metal plate & 6 screws; my mom's already calling me Bionic Woman. Lol! I love that your friends have a nickname for you! πŸ’š
bhjuliaj : Yay!!!! This is great news. Way to go!!! Remember you are a warrior. 😘😘😘
veggieterrain : You're such a sweetie! πŸ’• Thanks @buttercup1986! I hope you & your man are doing great! πŸ‘«
veggieterrain : Oh, you! ☺️ @bhjuliaj πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
spicedcuriosity : Good for you! And that salad sounds crazy delicious.

anti-inflammatory breakfast {chia seed pudding + berries} | in my quest to heal my body naturally post-surgery, i've rediscovered the power of chia seeds. did you know that chia seeds have the highest anti-oxidant concentration of any known food? they're also full of fiber, calcium, protein, & omega fatty acids. in addition, these little wonder seeds help w/ your body's circulation, energy, & digestion. and, as a result, they make the perfect breakfast for someone who's fighting inflammation due to bone growth! (that someone is me, in case you haven't already guessed 😁.) in my post from the ER, i shared that i fractured my tibia. unfortunately, it's actually my tibial plateau (the bone surface on top of your shin, behind your kneecap), which is far worse in terms of pain & healing, i'm told. as a result, i'll continue to be non-weight-bearing for at least another month, which is obviously taking its toll mentally & physically, as i watch the summer days go by without me... but the bottom line is this: i WILL get through this. i WILL heal. I WILL learn to walk again. the daily struggle to do simple things... the sleepless nights... the painful hours of physical therapy... it all has to be for something, right? right! thank you - from the bottom of my heart - to everyone who has reached out to me/left comments/etc. i can't even articulate how much all of your love & support means. truly. my heart is so full knowing that so many people care. ❀️ now, 🍻 to the healing power of chia seeds!

bhjuliaj : Hey!!! Just checking in to see how you're doing. Hoping each day is getting easier and that you are finding the strength, energy, and peace to conquer this set back. You're going to be stronger than ever!!!!! 😘😘😘
kymventola : @veggieterrain Jess! How are you doing? Worried about you!
veggieterrain : Sorry for the very late "thank you," but thanks so much! ❀️ You guys really lifted my spirits! ☺️@raikonyelo @babydeerie @happy_whispers @buttercup1986
veggieterrain : @bhjuliaj What can I even say?! You are an absolute doll for always checking up on me! πŸ’– I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support & concern. Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, but I hope you know what an amazing person you are! 😘 Thanks a million!
bhjuliaj : So happy to hear that you are getting stronger everyday. Woo- hoo!!! You are a superstar!!!! 😘
veggieterrain : OMG @sharnaraw! I don't know how I missed your comment, but I did! πŸ™ˆ I'm so sorry to hear that you went through such a similar experience, but am SO glad to hear that you healed & are exceeding all expectations - running?! AMAZING! πŸπŸƒπŸ‘ How far out are you from your injury? I'm 2 months from surgery & was just cleared to begin putting weight on my leg, which is both exciting & frightening, which I'm betting you can relate to! 😁 I'm working hard in PT & am hoping to keep moving forward steadily... πŸ‘Thanks so much for sharing your experience & for inspiring me to keep on pushing! πŸ™Œ

vegan hospital food {emergency room, brooklyn} | well, guys, i have some insane news to share... on tuesday, i was carrying our new puppy while walking through a crosswalk (i had the 'walk' signal), & out of nowhere, a woman blew through the light at 30-35mph & hit me w/ her car. it's impossible to describe how terrible it was - the car collided w/ my body, violet flew out of my arms, & i was struck so hard that i landed on the street, bouncing my head off the front of the car, & landing facing the complete opposite direction w/ my leg tangled under me. total strangers rushed to my aid - offering water, instructing me not to move, calling 911, & holding my puppy while i was hysterically lying in the street, completely terrified, utterly alone, & going into shock. i could hardly speak when the fireman & police arrived, & I couldn't move my lower body. somehow i managed to convince two police officers (thank you SO much, NYPD!) to take the puppy back to our apartment where she'd be safe. i was put in a neck brace, splinted, strapped to a gurney, & rushed by ambulance to the ER, where i spent the past 4 days. i had emergency surgery for a fractured tibia & torn meniscus (there are now 6 screws & a metal plate in my leg), & i won't be able to walk for at least 3 months (plus the untold # of months of physical therapy after that). i'm in an incredible amount of pain, but am grateful to be alive, & am INCREDIBLY grateful to the NYPD, NYFD, emergency responders, nurses, doctors, surgeons, & every-day new yorkers who saved my life. @billdeblasio
veggieterrain : Oh, gosh! πŸ™ˆ Sorry for the late response, but thank you so much for your encouragement & well-wishes! πŸ’– @theveganchemist
veggieterrain : Thanks a million @rachaelgeee! πŸ™ Things are improving slowly, but I'm definitely headed in the right direction. πŸ‘ PS Sorry so late w/ responding! 😱
veggieterrain : You're so sweet to think of me @terramilo! πŸ’– I feel terrible about not getting back to you sooner, but wanted you to know that your lovely comment means so much! πŸ™Œ
veggieterrain : @zerbitt OMG! I'm so sorry to hear that you were hit on your bike! I seriously can't imagine that - you're so brave to continue riding... I'm not sure I'd have the balls to do it anymore! 😱 Thank God you were relatively uninjured (although the mental part can be just as tough). As for me, things are slowly getting better, but I still have a long way to go. 🏁 I'm so grateful for all of the support & ❀️ from everyone on Instagram - it definitely helps lift me up!
bhjuliaj : I came across this quote & thought of you-
bhjuliaj : Oops here it is - whatever you are physically male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy -- all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but YOU are the light inside. - Cassandra Clare
veggieterrain : Oh! This is so lovely! πŸ’› I'm completely flattered & inspired that you read it & thought of me. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ˆβ˜ΊοΈ Believe it or not, since the accident I've been absentmindedly saving quotes that speak to me in some way, so I think it's really cool that you sent me this. 🍻 You're the best! πŸ’— @bhjuliaj Thanks so much! πŸ’‘
bhjuliaj : Such a huge lover of words and quotes. I have notebooks full of them. I think they really do help. Where in Brooklyn are you? Williamsburg or Greenpoint?

mixdblaquesheep : Omg im looking into getting a frenchie or a baby pit for my bf im in bk too, where did you get yours!
veggieterrain : Oh man, you have no idea how tough it was... 😩 I tried rescuing a pup to begin with, but every time I tried it fell through. It was seriously heart-breaking. πŸ’” (You might have better luck though - check out,, or even Animal Care & Control of NYC!) When I finally made the decision to go through a breeder, I kept running into people who were just looking to make a quick buck, & who didn't care about the health, well-being, & temperament of their puppies. πŸ‘Ž I finally ended up adopting from a reputable breeder in Dallas, TX, who shared health & lineage info w/ me, & who answered every single question I had. I highly recommend doing as much research as possible before making a decision - I met so many people who wound up w/ sick dogs or inadvertently supporting puppy mills (via pet shops or so-called "breeders.") πŸ˜“ Red flags w/ Frenchie breeders, in particular, are if they breed "exotic" colors, won't share pedigree info, have litters available all the time, and/or are willing to ship their puppies (it's really dangerous for short-faced breeds to fly as cargo bc of breathing issues). 🚫 Anyway, sorry to give such a long answer, but I felt like I was lost at sea when I first started looking for a pup... Hope this helps a bit - good luck! @mixdblaquesheep πŸ‘
