I am absolutely LIVING for these sunny fall days. I hope they last for a while (wishful thinking)! 🙏 Here is some Front Lever fun from our walk today down at the water. This is what happens when you find a perfectly placed (somewhat) solid piece of driftwood sticking out from a fort someone built 😂

Who’s coming to VEGFEST UK LONDON? 🇬🇧 This is approaching quickly! As one of the biggest vegan events in the world and a highlight of the year for me... I better see you there if you’re near by! Last year I met hundreds of you and it absolutely blew me away. Every single person I met had some amazing story on how plant based eating (with a little help from yours truly) had positively impacted their lives. It was nothing short of amazing. I’m so excited and honoured to be representing @vivolife again this year. I’m forever thankful for the amazing products and opportunities this company has allowed me to experience. I’m so excited for this! Along with mingling in the crowd, I’ll be doing a bit of speaking there too, so check the schedule! See you there . . . . . . . #vegfestuk #londoncalling #vegansofig #vivolife #govegan #thankful #plantpower #plantstrong #vegfestuklondon2018

Every single moment we have the opportunity to re-invent ourselves. We have the choice to drop old habits that don’t serve us anymore and start adapting new ones that will help us to progress. Of course making lasting changes can take time, but it all starts with each decision we make in the moment. Respect to everyone out there trying to become the best version of themselves... it’s not always easy, Not is it a linear path, but it will be worth it! . . . . . . . . . . . #motivation #selfimprovement #selflove #vegainz #veganmuscle #plantbuilt #vegansofig #plantstrong #plantpowered #veganathlete #govegan #veg #leangains #youreworthit #delts #vascular #compassion #veganfitness

Embrace your compassion! 🐝 I found this poor bee stuck in a windowsill with no energy left to fly so I decided to help. I didn’t even get the syrup off the spoon before she (apparently it’s a female) was getting into it. She drank it up for a few minutes before gathering up some energy to fly off. My life wouldn’t have changed if I had left this thing to die, but it’s life sure changed that I didn’t! This sort of compassion is in all of us. No one likes seeing any living creature in pain...but many of us still eat them daily without thinking twice. All living creatures want to live, this bee was no exception and neither is the cow, chicken, fish or pig that’s on your plate. Beyond that, eating more plants is even better for our health and the environment. Talk about a win-win situation! . . . . . . . #didntquitsugar #compassion #beekind #plantpowered #govegan #plantstrong #compassionate #plantbased #vegansofig #nature #bekind #carbsarelife #carbup

Great workout today! But the last few definitely weren’t like that. When I have a few lacklustre workouts I try and remind myself that there’s an ebb and flow to many things in life including our mood, motivation and even energy. When the tide is out, it’s bound to come back in. Just keep pushing forward and wait it out. 👊 . . . . . . . #flexfriday #ff #veganmuscle #leangains #veganbodybuilding #vegancalisthenics #strengthtraining #veganfitness #fitvegan #plantpowered #plantstrongvegan #plantbased #wfpb #veganathlete

I couldn’t decide between a cacao smoothie or a green one so I got both. Had to grab a large in the chocolate as it’s never enough. 😝 Which would you have chosen? . . . . . . . #smoothie #greensmoothie #plantpowered #plantstrong #vegansofig #veganathlete #rawthentic #wfpb #fruitisfuel #chocolate #drinkyourveggies

It’s definitely that time of year again where I start growing my beard a bit longer, trade the smoothie bowls for oatmeal and think about booking a trip somewhere warm. 🏝 Probably LA again since @crystalkennings and I just want to climb and swing at muscle beach! 😝Anyone got any warm getaways planned for winter? . . . . . . . . #hollywoodsign #needwarmth #plantpowered #plantstrong #vegansofig #veganmuscle #californiadreaming #vacationmode

IT’S HERE! Simnett Nutrition merch is available! *Link in bio. We’ve got worldwide shipping on great fitting tanks, T’s and sweatshirts. We wanted to start with the ‘SN APPROVED’ stuff as that’s what our community requested, but I have some other great graphic ideas I’m cooking up. So stay tuned for more! A big thanks to my team for helping me get all this up and running. Without their help I’m not sure where I would be! 🤪 The shop is live on the website and is absolute fire! Feeling proud and thankful! 😎🙏 @crystalkennings @neilfroehlich @hichamhd . . . . . #simnettnutrition #plantpowered #plantstrong #calisthenics #vegancalisthenics #veganmuscle #veganathlete #wfpb #vegainz

Sometimes I wonder if this isn’t the reason I workout! But seriously, there’s nothing like a freshly blended up smoothie bowl after a hard workout. In this one I put: •3 frozen bananas •1 cup of frozen berries •1 handful of fresh greens (cilantro today) •1 tbsp ground flax •1 scoop of Salted Maca Vivo Life Protein •1/2 cup of almond milk •1/2 tsp of turmeric •Pinch of black pepper (helps turmeric absorption) I make this one almost daily. Anyone else as habitual as me with their smoothie bowls? I recently made a new background for my food photos for my upcoming recipe ebook! I hope my buddy, big JV over @veganfitnessmeals doesn’t mind me borrowing their background idea. 😬 In my defence I’ve been wanting to make one like this for a while now. . . . . . . . . . . #smoothiebowl #postworkout #fruitisfuel #foodphotography #plantfueled #plantstrong #plantpower #postworkoutmeal #postworkout #veganfood #veganrecipes

Anyone else never get tired of smoothie bowls? 🤗 Who knew that frozen fruit soup could be so amazing! Quick tip: If you don’t have a high powered blender that can cope with job, you can leave the frozen fruit out for a few minutes to give the blender a bit of an easier time. BUT, if you’re serious about your health (and can afford it) I would seriously look into getting a high speed blender like a @vitamix. I’ve never met anyone who regrets the purchase. I guarantee you will use it far more than you think and they really do create a better finished product. Not sponsored (I wish), I just know sometimes it takes a little push to make a big investment like that. I’ve had my Vitamix for 8 years and it still works amazingly and I’m certainly not easy on it! . . . . . . . #smoothiebowls #vegansofig #veganftw #wfpb #vitamix #fruitisfuel #hclf #veganmeals #veganmuscle #veganbodybuilding #plantpowered #plantpower #plantstrong #veganfitness

I’m always so excited for peaches, but a little sad because I know it means the end of summer is here. BUT... there are so many amazing foods that ripen at this time of year! What foods are you most looking forward to this fall? Squash? Yams? Soups? Stews? Chilli’s? 🍠🥕🌽🍑🤤 . . . . . . #peaches #fallharvest #veganfood #vegansofig #plantpowered #plantstrong #harvestseason #ripe #coombs #fastfood #realfastfood #fruitislife
