When first going vegan, it might be hard to find yummy and healthy vegan options for lunch at work or school, especially if you’re not privileged to have a big variety of options. I felt the same way again when I decided to go gluten-free for a few weeks, so meal prepping for work became a weekly ritual.
I love chickpeas because of their consistency and versatility! You can make hummus out of them, marinate them or roast them with spices. Chickpeas are rich in fiber, protein and manganese and can help to increase satiety, boost digestion and help to keep blood sugar levels stable. They are a real multitalent for the vegan diet!
I like meals that consist of just a big bunch of veggies & grains in a bowl. They’re simple, they taste good and they are super nutritious. This thai-inspired bowl packs loads of protein thanks to the quinoa and is a light summer meal!
Sooo….pancakes. 🙂 If you have been following me on Instagram, you have had the pleasure of enjoying my pancake spam in the past few weeks. I basically use every free morning I get to make pancakes and have tried different variations every time!
Risotto to me is a super indulgent meal, perfect for a rainy Saturday afternoon, enjoyed with a glass of white wine. I am definitely a risotto-fan, although I have to admit I’ve never made one myself. Don’t ask me why.
Yup, this is basically a mini cake for one. Or baked oatmeal in a mug. Whatever you want to see it as, mugcakes are the perfect dessert or afternoon snack – easy and quick to make and super indulgent!
This past easter, we were discussing what to have as an easter meal. Of course, any traditional dish involving meat was off the table and we couldn’t think of a particular dish that seemed fitting for easter. So we ended up just cooking what we felt like eating and it turned out delicious!
If you have been following me for a while, you know that this vegan baking thing is still quite the struggle for me. And adding the gluten-free criteria to it in the past few weeks certainly has not made it any easier! 🙂 Apart from these perfect vegan & gluten-free brownies, I haven’t found a lot of recipes that reliably turn out well.
For some reason, I am not really craving pasta anymore these days, and I actually think that’s a good thing! (Pizza is a whole other story tho..) 🙂 However, I discovered a recipe for a pasta bake with zucchini and also just bought some gluten-free, tri-colored pasta I wanted to try.
There was this one day when I thought to myself: I eat chocolate oatmeal almost every day. I love white chocolate. Why have I never tried white chocolate oats?!? So I made white chocolate oats. And they were every bit as heavenly and delicious as I imagined. No actually – they were soo much better!!
