Chia Seed Pudding

If you’re like me, you can’t be bothered in the morning to think too much about what you’re going to eat. Because we’re still a bit out of it and often in a rush, the tendency can be to either skip breakfast all together or go for a quick fix like a sugar-laden and processed breakfast bar. And while this sort of solution may …

Chickpea Flour Omelette with Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella

In my opinion, chickpea flour omelettes are a crucial staple for everyone’s cooking repertoire. They’re super-easy to make; high in protein, fiber, and iron; and delicious when combined with the right seasoning and / or vegetables.

However, most people aren’t even aware that they exist – even most of my vegan friends and acquaintances haven’t heard of them. Which I find surprising, because chickpea …

The Best Vegan Avocado Toast

Rich in healthy fats and fiber, avocado toast may just be the best and easiest breakfast ever. This version drizzled with lemon juice and coconut oil, and topped with sea salt, hemp seeds, and crushed red pepper is the one I always make, and it’s absolutely delicious. It’s rich in energizing and nourishing healthy fats, but not overly filling, making it the …

One day when we were driving back from the …

Shells & Cheeze

“I could go vegan…but” can you guess what the rest of the sentence usually is? I couldn’t give up cheese. This is what people say to vegans all the time. But the truth is you don’t really have to give up anything, as there are many different vegan cheeses on the market these days. And what’s even better is that you can create …

Simple Side: Potato Rounds

Grounding, filling, earthy, comforting… these are some words that come to mind when I think about potatoes. In my opinion, these’s no better yummy snack or (really) lazy dinner than some baked potato slices.

Contrary to mainstream society’s beliefs about them, potatoes actually incredibly healthy for us. They contain high levels of fiber and are packed with nutrients. Like most others, I had been …

Baked Tempeh with Forbidden Rice Noodles in Peanut Sauce

This delicious Thai-inspired dish requires minimal prep time and chopping. It does involve a bit of passive waiting time, but you can leave the kitchen and do chores in between steps.

People’s interest are always piqued when they see the dish because it looks so exotic and unusual. My brother, who can be pretty skeptical about vegan food particularly anything containing soy – 

Kale Smoothie

Every health fanatic has their own favorite kale smoothie that they love having for breakfast. Mine contains:

Kale – High in fiber, chlorophyl, potassium, vitamins C, K, and B6; very alkalizing; beneficial for healthy skin, hair, bones, and digestion

Blueberries – Rich in antioxidants, particularly anthocyanin – a special kind of flavonoid; high in Vitamins A, C, E, and B6, all of which have
