Bouncing around from place to place watching all of these doggos & living out of a suitcase these last few weeks has made me feel a little unorganized, so this weekend is going to be all about doing things that will make me feel more balanced, more grounded and more organized. Dog walk adventure tomorrow AM, gym to follow, some meal prep and studying is on the list tomorrow 👌🏼 Here’s to a relaxing, recharging and hopefully sunny weekend 🙋🏼♂️ And you best be sure this salad will be making an appearance over the weekend! ————————————————
Kale, romaine & mixed greens with roasted broccoli, brussels & parsnips, warm chickpeas, avo & a (not seen) garlicky, lemon tahini dressing 👅
Super Easy 🍕 ——————————
This took 15 minutes to put together and bake, also it’s super calorie friendly 🤷♀️
—————————— 4 ingredients 😎
Josephs Pita Bread
Tofurky Italian sausage ——————————
I baked it for 8-10 minutes In the oven 😃⭐️
This would be a perfect snack, or if you’re trying to lose weight and craving pizza, it’s low in fat and in carbs, averaging for two pita pizzas 323 calories 🤦♂️
EGG REPLACEMENT. I'm always asked how I replace my eggs when I bake. There are substitutes for any animal produce and they also happen to be much healthier options. Flaxseed for instance can be be grounded down into flaxseed meal and used as an egg replacer for baking. 1 tbsp of flax + 3 tbsp of water = 1 egg.
Other great substitutes for replacing eggs when baking are: -1/4 cup applesauce = 1 egg
-1/2 mashed banana = 1 egg
-1 tbsp chia seeds + 1/3 cup water = 1 egg
Looking to do some vegan baking this weekend, try out one of these options.
Need some meat free inspiration? Look no further... introducing my EPIC (yea, it really is!) vegan dill & beet burger with fresh horseradish cashew cream and pickled red onion. I used soaked chia in water instead of egg to bind the mixture (extra omega 3 brownie points👍🏻)The best thing about this recipe is that you can make a batch and freeze em up for quick, hassle free future meals, giving you more time to do other fun stuff 😉 the full recipe will be up on the site soon. Watch this space👀! Oh, and HAPPY FRIDAY!!
Orange Julius with chia seeds. This is Graham’s favorite smoothie.
———————————————————- Recipe: 2 frozen bananas, 2-3 oranges depending on size (I use smaller organic oranges so I used three), 1 tsp of orange zest, 3/4 cup almond milk, 3/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional). Blend really well to break up that orange pulp. If the pulp is really bothersome you can always juice the orange. I prefer the whole orange for the health benefits. Add a large handful of spinach to it for a healthy boost. This is a good way to get raw greens into those kiddos - the taste is undetectable.
Brown rice salad 😍😋... literally from a page in my book! (Plant based plates- link is in my bio)🌱👍🏼 This is for a family lunch tomorrow- it’s super simple and an absolute knockout dish! I remember the first time I tried it - I think I had 4 helpings and still wanted more!!! :))) @michtapas .... (it was at a Macedonian / Greek lunch - you never know where you’ll find delicious, new plant based dishes!) ;))) 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I’m extra excited for tomorrow’s lunch as a few of the aunties are bringing “vegan dishes”. One has been working on a dairy free potato bake and I can’t wait to try it!!! 😍I was recently told “you’ll never change anybody” and we’ll, my job is not to do that. I feel my job is to show people how easy and delicious it is to live plant based (plus great for the environment and our health but there are enough doco’s out there for that info 😘) . I may not “change” everyone or maybe no one else besides my little A team but I do see small changes all the time in my circle of friends and family. It’s more than enough for me to see excitement over a new “vegan recipe” and interest in what “vegans” eat and why. It’s not my job to change anyone, instead my job is to be here with a few pointers if they decide to change themselves 🌱❤️ *plant based plates is available in hard copy and PDF. The publishing co. set the price for the book 😳; I set the price for the PDF version (so it’s very affordable) :)))) enjoy! X

Finished with Thai Basil, chopped baby spinach, a squeeze of lime and some coconut cream. AMAZING 👏 💁🌶️🌶️ served with brown rice & red quinoa, and a big fresh green salad of course 🥗🌱 #VEGANCURRY

Chase those winter blues away with this Creamy Vegetable Tomato Soup.
This will be a great go-to soup year-round, especially with those garden-fresh summer veggies. The tangy lemon and sweet basil give this soup a subtle white wine flavor. The cashew cream not only adds healthful fats; it gives the soup a nice creamy texture and body. The crunchy chickpeas are a healthy, protein-packed substitute for croutons. And the zucchini, onions, and peppers help make the soup a bit heartier on the vegetable side. When I am cooking, there is always lots of vegetables added! 🍅
Recipe is now on the blog (link temporarily in bio): kristinademuth.com/creamy-vegetable-tomato-soup/
It was love at first bite 💚 🍪 And second, and third and then next thing you know it was over 💔 —————————————————
