When I make sushi, it always reminds me of my time in San Diego because that is where I made it for the first time. And I also had a sushi night with my 3 roomies there, when we all made sushi together, which was nice! 🙂
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.
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!
I have been seeing countless variations of protein balls on Instagram – with matcha, chia, spirulina, maca… And you know me. I had to try them myself! So I made a pretty basic version for the start, with chia seeds and peanut butter.
I admit I’ve been having my troubles with vegan baking endeavors… One of my grandmothers used to have her own bakery, so she was a baker by trade. Whenever we visit her, we are served delicious homemade cakes. Since going vegan, I have been trying to bring baked vegan goods, but was always a little ashamed because they couldn’t keep up with her cakes in the slightest. I have tried a few vegan cakes, muffins and brownies and apart from this raw-vegan cheesecake (which technically doesn’t count as baking), I was never happy with the result. Never!
Ok guys, fall is slowly coming to an end, the nightly temperatures are dropping below zero and christmas decoration has hit the stores. But before we approach the colder season, I would like to give you one more fall recipe.
When I get the frozen bananas out of my freezer, it’s usually to make Nicecream. But this particular summer day, I just wanted a chocolate milkshake. Sometimes I miss having milkshakes. I used to love getting chocolate or vanilla milkshakes at fastfood restaurants when I was younger! But thinking about all the unhealthy & nasty stuff they put in there, I don’t feel the need to go there anymore. Much to my surprise, I created this absolutely delicious, thick and HEALTHY vegan chocolate milkshake!
If you are looking for a super rich, but healthy treat, you have come to the right place! These raw, vegan snickers bites (I guess you could also call it peanut butter chocolate fudge) are a healthier replacement for chocolate. If you have a sweet tooth like me, and need your occasional chocolate fix, these will let you have it without feeling bad about it!
