You know when your friend calls and says she is popping around in half an hour for a cup of tea and you have no yummy treats? That’s me, always. Mostly because I don’t buy packaged foods like biscuits and honestly because when I do make whole food treats they NEVER last long… So here is a healthier vegan version of Anzac biscuits, using nutritious ingredients, free from refined sugar, dairy and gluten free. Plus an optional twist on a traditional favourite, half coated with homemade dark chocolate.
Afternoon tea with your bestie? Work or lunchbox treats? Problem solved.
A plant-based meal perfect for lunch or dinner, entertaining guests or meal-prep. These protein and fibre rich vegan ‘meatballs’ made with black beans and mushrooms will make you forget you’ve even skipped the meat. You’ll be a Meatless Monday pro in no time!
A quiche or tart makes an easy healthy lunch or dinner with extra leftovers, or even a pre-made breakfast on the go. It’s a great dish to use up all your leftover veg at the end of the week. You can make it without a base as a frittata if you prefer. Serve it up with extra veg on the side such as a fresh green salad or steamed green beans.
The health benefits of a plant-based diet is plentiful. Plant-based meals can be cheaper, nutrient-rich, environmentally sustainable and better for animal welfare and your body. Despite that many people worry that they won’t get enough protein on a plant-based diet, and this is far from the truth.
Whether you are solely plant-based, vegan or vegetarian, transitioning into either of these, or simply choose to reduce your animal intake for better health for yourself and the environment; you can be sure that protein requirements can be readily met on a plant-based diet. These protein requirements can be met for any goals too. Whether that be overall health and wellness, fat loss or muscle growth (just google vegan bodybuilders and athletes and you will be amazed). Even Arnold Schwarzenegger has become a activist for veganism.
A healthy, vegetable packed version of a delicious favourite Asian stir-fry style rice dish! Nasi Goreng is a flavour packed dish with flavours of fresh chilli, coriander and sweet soy.
The issue I have with commercially made ones is they are usually made with refined oils, have added sugars in the sauce and generally don’t contain many good nutrients. Also be aware if you are gluten intolerant like me, as artificial soy sauces can contain gluten (alternatives are naturally brewed & fermented soy which causes breakdown of gluten or gluten free Tamari).
