To make store-bought hummus your own, add Olive Oil and your topping of choice (in this case roasted garlic). Then devour with enthusiastic fervency.
Healthy, delicious, foreign… what more could you want from your lunch?
Roasted Garlic has become a new necessity in my kitchen. You can eat the garlic alone, mash it up and spread on bread, mix with salad dressings, basically the list goes as far as your imagination.
Fresh and homemade, this delicious pasta sauce has a unique coconut twist.
Italian Seasoned Potato Wedges, the perfect side dish. Or meal. Or snack.
Rice and Zucchini Stuffed Mushrooms. A delightful appetizer for any lunch!
These veggie sloppy joes taste just like the originals and are about half the calories. Enjoy in the summertime with some beans and chips!
Go pick some fresh strawberries and make this amazing summer dessert ;)
A vegan re-creation of the Chilean style hotdog, also known as the Completo!
What happens when my two most favorite dips/spreads in the world combine? Pure majesty, that’s what. Also known as Guacammus.
I usually use about a cup of soy milk, a handful of strawberries, and half of a banana… but you may be different. So the cost is +/- $1.00 depending on your preference.
Now go NOMZ!
These were absolutely amazing!! They were even fully taste-tested and approved by my non-vegan roommates :)
About 12 cookies cost me a little less than $6 to make. Even though they probably cost more or less the same to buy, it is a fact that they taste so much better homemade! (Plus you get to eat all the cookie dough that you want…)
Just a few exciting highlights from my personal experiences while eating a vegan diet!
Since changing my eating habits:
I have lost 15 lbs.
I have run faster. (I ran a 5k on Saturday and it was less than challenging. Time to up the distance… half-marathon anyone?)
I have learned [and am still learning] how to cook.
I have become more informed.
I have learned how it feels to be judged and how to show love despite that because, well, now I know how it feels to be judged.
I have learned how to love and respect my body.
In this moment, I am the healthiest and happiest that I have ever been in my life.
What could possibly be more exciting than that? Knowing that I can keep pushing myself to learn more, eat more, run faster, and live longer.
Whoever thinks being vegan is boring, stupid, tasteless, and weird needs to do some serious re-evaluation because I absolutely LOVE my life!
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day (with dinner being a close second). Oatmeal is quick, filling, and can be absolutely delicious depending on what you put in it!
Plus, look at how cheap it is. Only 75 cents for one serving. I think it actually just became a little more delicious…
