MIND THE MUSTARD Ul­tra­cool YouTube ve­gan sen­sa­tion Jenny Mustard talks about hap­pi­ness, tech­nol­ogy, and the art of eat­ing well with Li Ying Lim.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY BAZAAR -

How did you tran­si­tion from fash­ion to talk­ing about healthy liv­ing? A few years back, as Mind The Mustard ( Jenny’s cloth­ing web­site) started to grow, we no­ticed that our fol­low­ers showed a big­ger in­ter­est in my per­sonal life, in­stead of just me as a model or a stylist. So, I started a per­sonal In­sta­gram ac­count and started post­ing pho­tos of my ev­ery­day life, and of course, my food. Peo­ple re­ally seemed to love read­ing about my food and my healthy life­style. That’s when I got the idea for my blog and YouTube videos. A cloth­ing line, a modelling ca­reer, a YouTube chan­nel, and now you have a recipe book. Tell us about New Ve­gan. All the recipes are su­per healthy – just the type of food I eat my­self all the time. Fresh, yummy, and pretty. It’s food that’ll make that body of yours happy, too! Al­most all recipes are gluten­free, ve­gan, of course, and with­out white sugar. How is tech­nol­ogy ad­van­ta­geous in be­com­ing ve­gan, or lead­ing a health­ier life­style in gen­eral? Tech­nol­ogy has been es­sen­tial in mak­ing new and un­usual life­style choices main­stream, like be­ing ve­gan and health-con­scious. No mat­ter where you’re from, it’s now pos­si­ble to get in­spired by, and learn from other ve­gans on­line. There are so many myths about the ve­gan diet and what’s con­sid­ered healthy, but be­cause of the In­ter­net, we can now ed­u­cate our­selves. What is your beauty se­cret? Be­ing a healthy ve­gan. The things we eat af­fect both our in­sides and out­sides. If I would choose one beauty tip – more im­por­tant than any make-up or beauty prod­ucts – it would be hav­ing a healthy ve­gan diet. Drink­ing enough wa­ter, get­ting enough sleep, stay­ing away from white sugar, sat­u­rated fats, and dairy prod­ucts are in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant to feel and look great.
