Spiced banana bread donuts by @panaceas_pantry 💙
1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour
1/2 cup blanched almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup almond milk
1 large, ripe banana, mashed
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
Dash apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp chia seeds
3 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp rice malt syrup
1. Preheat your over to 180 degrees C. Set aside a large donut pan (no need to ease if its non-stick)

3. Add the apple cider vinegar to the almond milk, and also set aside for 5 minutes.
4. In a large mixing bowl, sift in all the dry ingredients except the almond meal (just add that straight into the bowl without sifting). Mix very well with a wooden spoon.
5. In a second large mixing bowl, and all of the wet ingredients, including the chia and the almond milk mixtures. Mix very well, until uniform (the oil may sit on top, and that is ok). 6. Pour the wet mix into the dry mix, and stir to only just combine (do not overtax). Spoon the mix into the donut pan, until 3/4 full. Use your finger to smooth out the mix.
7. Bake for 12-15 mins (I did 13), then remove form th even. Allow to cool for 10 mins before banging donuts onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Ok just stick with me because this is going to sound crazy! Creamy potato dill pickle soup! Yep! Dill pickles! If you're a fan of dill pickles you will love these ultra creamy soup. The recipe came up on my FB feed. Of course it wasn't plantbased. It had chicken stock, butter, and sour cream. But no matter because it was super easy to alter and definitely worth the try!
2-3 lbs Yukon gold potatoes
2 c shredded carrots
6 c vegetable broth
1 1/2 c diced dill pickles
2 c pickle juice
2 tsp old bay seasoning
1 tsp black pepper
1 c cashews
2 c water
1/2 c whole wheat flour
Wash and dice (small) potatoes and place in large pot. Add diced onions, shredded carrots and vegetable broth. Cook until potatoes and carrots and soft. Add diced pickles, pickle juice and seasonings. In a blender combine cashews, water and flour. Blend well. Stir into soup. Allow to cook for a little while longer blending the flavors. #dillpicklesoup#ilovepickles#creamysoup#potatosoup#supereasytomake#nodairynoproblem#nooilneeded#plantbased#wholefoods#starchivore#herbivore#whatveganseat#veganfood
THE CALEDONIA || Ok so I'm back again because I'm now OBSESSED with @calivegankitch 😍😍😍 I had the Thinger Burger 🔥👌🏻...also I've just found out ALL of the drinks here are vegan too, just FYI! 🌿 (plus they're dog friendly so what's not to love?!) @thecaledonia
🌞Happy Hump Day!🌞 This morning I'm having a quick smoothie bowl packed with antioxidants. I blended blackberries, cherries, and prune juice. YES prune juice! 🤣 I really don't know why prunes get such a bad rep! I mean they're just dried plums🤷♀️. I love the sweetness/the pinch of tartness that it brings. Its really tasty😋. Prunes are notorious for providing constipation relief but they also:
✔prevent oxidative stress •
✔give you an energy boost
✔great source of fiber
• [I topped my bowl with goji berries.]
OMG I love the colour of my (really late) breakfast today 😍
Smoothie Bowl with zucchini, frozen berries, oats, vanilla protein powder, frozen banana, some almond butter and coconut flakes for the healthy fats, hempseeds (omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids!), blueberries, raspberries and cacao nibs (magnesium & calcium!) ➡ 626kcal
@Regrann from @the.undisputable.vegans - The chia seed was once a staple food of the Aztecs, loved for its ability to sustain and to give endurance.
Most health-conscious people will be more familiar with linseeds (flaxseeds) than they will be with #chiaseeds . So, if you've ever put a spoon of linseed into some water and left it for thirty minutes, you would have returned to find a kind of glutinous solution, kind of like a gel consistency. Well, the same thing happens with chia seeds, which is another reason that they are so good for you; they act the same way in your gut. This means that they are really good for your digestive system, providing both a high amount of fiber, and also this action of forming a gel-like solution moves through your body and cleans up as it goes. It's also thought that this gel physically prevents the fast breaking down of carbohydrates in the body by slowing down the action of the enzymes on the carbs.
Chia is gluten free
It is super high in dietary fiber, making it great for digestion and healing digestion issues.
It contains 20% omega-3 ALA, making it a super food for the brain and heart.
Chia has eight times more omega-3 than salmon!
It boasts 20% protein
It is high in antioxidants (It has a four times higher ORAC value than blueberries)
Chia contains five times more #calcium than #milk
Chia contains seven times more vitamin C than oranges
It contains three times more iron than spinach
It contains twice the potassium content of banana
It is food for healthy #skin , #hair and #nails
It has a positive impact balancing blood glucose levels (making it awesome for diabetics)
#Chia makes a great egg replacement. Just combine with water to form a gel, and add it to recipes that call for #egg . uglybynature

Isometric Exercises are moves where you hold in a position under tension. And often when we think of “core” isometric moves, we think of Planks. And while Planks are great isometric core moves, they aren’t the only great Isometric Core Exercises. Isometric Core Moves are the perfect chance to build your mind-body connection and focus on the correct muscles engaging and working. By building your mind-body connection, you will teach your body to recruit the correct muscles quickly when you do other lifts, helping you to not only lift more but also lift properly to prevent injury.
Because you are holding in an uncomfortable position, these moves will also help you build mental toughness and learn to become comfortable being uncomfortable, build resilience, and body awareness which is essential for achieving Vegainz.
Chasing Vegainz ain't always about lifting heavy weight. It's about what you are doing outside of training. Ensuring you get good rest, fuelling the body right, getting plenty of time outside in the natural sunlight for vitamin D and moving the body through more restorative and lower impact movements. Think about it - your body works hard for you - what do you do to honour it? Better rest and recovery comes from getting more natural sunlight amongst the elements and taking rest. That way - when the time comes - were ready to give it all with intensity and leave nothing behind! A strong lift is built on the foundations of a strong recovery program 💪🏼🐨🌿
Honestly the most delicious salty snack I've EVER tasted! @culturemushrooms 'Oyster mushroom biltong' packs a punch of umami and leaves you craving more! So much depth of flavour from the mushrooms and a combination of earthy, rich flavours is the only way I can describe it. Absolutely delicious! 😋
Mid-week meal prep 😋 If you watched my stories you would have seen me zoodle-ing and making a mess cooking this pasta sauce 🤣 So much splatter 😅 I also spiralized some potatoes too (so are they called poodles then? 🤔🐩😕), and air-fried them to make crunchy chippies and the first batch were so yummy I ate them before thinking about taking a pic, then the next 3 batches were not amazing 🙊 Some bits were a little burnt and other bits undercooked 🙈 I'll try again another day 😀 I hope you're all having a fab day 😙😙😙

Are you a healthy or unhealthy vegan?
Being vegan is not always the same as being healthy. Yes, it's healthy to stay away from animal proteins and fats, but that doesn't mean that you are getting all your nutritients covered in your vegan diet. And what about substitutes added in the vegan alternatives?
There are many vegan alternatives to meat and dairy. You can get vegan burgers, sausages, vegan minced "meat", vegan balls, vegan icecream, vegan cheese, vegan yogurt, etc.. Summed up: delicious fatty, salty and surgarish foods. Of course we like the taste of it. -
I'm not saying that you always should avoid eating these foods. I occasionally eat them myself. But it's a good idea to know that— despite the fact that these foods are based on plants, they are also processed. Meaning several other substitutes are added for preserving flavor or enhance the taste.. That's why they look good, taste good and the main reason you will crave them again and again..
Just think about this every now and then. When you choose what to eat in your vegan diet(or in any diet).. maybe there are other options than processed foods available? Are there any whole foods, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds for consuming? I prefer to be a healthy vegan and choose natural foods if I can. Without added color, flavor, sugar, salt and fat. It's not always possible, but I whenever I can. -
My diet is consisting of mostly raw foods. But I like to implement beans/peas/potatoes/oats or baked greens for at least one meal a day(often the last meal). Whenever I can I choose foods that are organic and unprocessed. -
I love my morning smoothies or juices. Nurturing me with high levels of natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, carbs, healthy fats and plant protein.
What kind of vegan are you? 💚🌱
Start of our mini holiday requires a green mango & passion fruit smoothie!! 🌱😍😋 I was SO excited to find frozen organic mango here in NZ this week! @oob.organic I just made @rhys_wilks and I a massive green smoothie with fresh cold press apple juice, mango, passionfruit (they have these awesome cubes of pure passion fruit pulp here in NZ 🙌), orange, a few handfuls of green leafy veg, hemp seeds (great source of omega 3 & 6 & protein), and my favourite current obsession - mango turmeric yoghurt! 😍 @raglancoconutyoghurt We have a big week with lots of travelling ahead and this is a great way to boost our immune systems pre-trip!
