    5 Easy Vegan Lunch Ideas

    Just the thought of switching to a vegan lifestyle can be overwhelming. When my husband and I first made the switch, I wasn’t worried about dinners. I could plan those. My breakfast? It was already vegan friendly. I was worried about lunch. What could you possibly replace a ham and cheese sandwich with?! Was my first thought. It took some time before I felt comfortable straying away from a smoothie and a snack for lunch every day. And let me tell you, its a decision I haven’t regretted one bit. So here I am sharing my findings of yummy vegan friendly sandwich replacements that will rock your world and send your…

    Peanut Butter Banana Brownies

    Biting into a thick, dense, moist brownie is mouth watering…and these Peanut Butter Banana Brownies are no different. I had never been a big chocolate person. I was always into candy and non-chocolatey baked goods. But something about brownies… I get cravings that I just can’t ignore.   If you’ve been able to get through the covid quarantine without all the sugary cravings then I applaud you. But that surely has not been the case for me 😂 Naturally I fell victim to my brownie and peanut butter craving and decided to explore a bit! With a ton of banana’s on the counter and a love for peanut butter, it…

    Healthy Banana Bread Pancakes (& vegan friendly!)

    There is nothing like pancakes on Saturday morning. If you asked me, I’d eat breakfast for every single meal of the day! Everything from waffles, to pancakes, French toast, tofu scramble, breakfast sandwiches and more. Thats why these Banana Bread Pancakes have become a family favourite fast! I’ve always been one to respect breakfast. You’ll never catch me dashing out of the house with an empty stomach. I love to wake up slowly. Enjoy a latte, eat my breakfast at a reasonable pace and think about the day ahead. I’m also pretty routine when it comes to what I eat for breakfast — Monday to Friday I eat some variation of…

    Creamy Vegan Alfredo

    This creamy vegan Alfredo is a great ‘replacement’ to the real thing. I hadn’t had Alfredo in about 8 months — it was one of my favourite dishes! Often when people speak of wanting to switch to a vegan or plant based diet they bring up the foods they would miss. I try to not see it as a loss but rather as a gain. I’m actively saving animals lives, saving the planet and feeding my body the most nutrient dense food I possibly can (most of the time –if you haven’t tried a gourmet vegan donut then you’re missing out 🍩) But, if I had to choose a certain…

    Vegan Chilli Teriyaki Sauce

    This spicy, vegan friendly teriyaki sauce is just what you’ve been looking for! It’s great to marinate your tofu in, flavour your cauliflower wings (you can get the recipe here!) with or use it for a vegan teriyaki bowl. Your options are endless with this recipe. Not to mention it takes no time at all to whip up. As I said, it’s super easy to make. All you have to do is mince your fresh garlic and ginger. I do recommend using fresh — as I believe, fresh is best! But if you don’t have any, then the ground powders will do just fine! Once you have your garlic and ginger…

    Crispy BBQ Cauliflower Wings

      It all started with Super Bowl…but don’t all good food stories start that way? February 2nd 2020 was when the San Fransisco 49’ers went to the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs and I made crispy bbq cauliflower wings. Unfortunately for my husband and the rest of San Fran, they were defeated in the last quarter by the chiefs. But, fortunately for myself, my crispy BBQ Cauliflower Wings were a giant win! The build up to the Super Bowl was big this year since my husband’s team was playing. Becoming predominantly plant based 2 months before caused snackage to be a big topic before the game. We have…
