Homemade Corn Salsa & Vegan Quesadillas

Good morning & happy Monday! This week I’m sharing some VEGAN recipes here on LifexErin. A few people have asked what I’m eating now. Since I moved back home, as I briefly discussed in a previous post, I’ve been eating anything on the spectrum between vegan and pescetarian meals. Some days I eat lots of fruit and veggies. Other days I eat junk food. Then I have days where my meals are “perfectly balanced”. It all depends on HOW I FEEL. Experimenting with my food has helped me immensely on my journey to becoming a healthier version of myself. I have a better idea of what foods, meal times, and eating “styles” (for the lack of a better term) work best for my body. Anyhoo, let’s hop into the first recipe for this week. I think you’ll love it!
