I've considered adding a "Miyoko's" cell to my monthly budget spreadsheet. I can't get enough of their🧀cheese and I foresee it becoming a problem. This flavor in particular made me weak in the knees. It's:
•Speckled with diced chives
|Bottom Line| Buy this flavor in pairs, because you will without a doubt eat an entire package in one sitting >>Find yours<< @miyokos_kitchen
You know that accessory that goes with everything? The one you can wear to that interview next week you're Jones'n about but also the one you wore on the date with that girl you should have swiped left with? Ya. That one. That's basically @justins Hazelnut Butter 🌰It goes on EVERYTHING! Waffles, pancakes, crackers, and fingers alike. It's:
•Satisfyingly chocolatey sweet
|Bottom Line| It's the American Nutella you've always wanted >>Find yours<< @justins
Such an honour to take Plant Powered Kitchen to the farming district where I grew up. Alongside @aaronbrunet we cooked up a feast of vegan delights ending the day with a lovely fireside yin yoga class in the Yoga Barn with @jinnaglenn #yogaandfood#vegancookingclass#plantpoweredkitchen
I recently discovered the ✨magic✨ that is AquaCacteen. I'm not a believer in quick and easy fixes but this stuff WORKS! I've only been using this cream for two weeks but have noticed a visible difference in the smoothness of my skin. It's:
•Seriously pore quenching
•Lightly coconut 🌴 scented
|Bottom Line| If you are new to Andalou products and aren't sure which to try first👉🏽THIS. IS. IT. >>Find yours<< @andalounaturals
I'm trying to clean up my diet because I have not been feeling so good and I know it's because I have been eating pretty crappy as of late.
Giving up cheese and ice cream has been the hardest part for me so I was thrilled when I found a dairy free fudge bar recipe on the blog Plant Powered Kitchen. I am loving these fudge bars.
Summer⛱ is officially here (Thanks solstice 🌔) and if your ready to add some glow to your skin without 🙅🏽baking in the sun, you definitely have to check out EcoTan. It's:
•Thick and creamy
•Golden Carmel in color
|Bottom Line| Of all self-tanners I've applied, Vegan or not, THIS is the best. 👌🏻👌🏼👌🏽👌🏾👌🏿It's a little pricey but you can guarantee a flawless tan with every application. Bar none. >>Find yours<< @ecotan
This was dinner 🍴😋 !!
Yellow curry tofu puffs, zoodles, kale, snap peas, thinly sliced radish - spicy 🌶 because I added Serrano pepper too!
So good! 😋🌱

What did you have for dinner?
Nestled in the Mission District of San Francisco🌁, Dandelion Chocolate is known for its small batch, single origin bars. I grabbed the 2015 harvest from Madagascar and it did not disappoint. It's:
|Bottom Line| Not all chocolate is created equal and THESE are some seriously elevated squares. 🍫 If you do visit Dandelion, make sure to do a tasting to complete your chocolate experience! >>Find Yours<< @dandelionchocolate
🌶🌶If you are going to be so bold and name your chips 'Red hot MOJO' you better be sure your chips deliver. 🚨Spoiler alter: THEY DO🌶🌶They are:

I 💛Califia products so I was STOKED to finally try the much celebrated ☕️ cold brew. I went straight for the big stuff and grabbed the XXX shot but unfortunately it didn't deliver 🙅🏼It's:
•Lacking in coffee boldness. Is there even coffee in this? 🤔
•Plastic-y or alcohol-y or soapy in flavor (I'm not even sure how to explain what's happening on my tastebuds 🤷🏻♀️)
•Smooth and creamy
|Bottom Line| Skip this one. I'm hoping their other flavors of #coldbrew are better but it will probably we a while before I give another flavor a go! >>Find yours<< @califiafarms & @sprouts
Sooo there's this ice cream... It's undetectably dairy-free and sophisticated in flavor without being over the top🍦🍦🍦With cashew milk as its base, THIS ice cream is one sexy pint. It's:
•Loaded with CHUNKS of snickerdoodle 🍪 cookie
•Bursting with cinnamon flavor
•Basically Christmas 🎄 morning in a pint
|Bottom Line| There is a 90% chance this ice cream WILL change your life. May the odds be ever in your flavor >>Find yours<< @so_delicious or @wholefoods
🌱When I first went Vegan, Minimalist Baker saved me. She made me realize that being vegan was TOTALLY DOABLE and that you don't have to go without your favorites. She has so many great recipes online, I almost didn't buy the book, but if anything, I figured I owed her for teaching me that vegans eat more than just salads 😜 It's no surprise that her first cookbook is nothing short of amazing. Inside you will find:
•Quick and easy meals for all occasions
•Gorgeous photos accompanying every recipe
•Some seriously drool-worthy recipes! (👋🏼Lasagna I'm talking to you!)
|Bottom Line| If you had to buy just ONE #vegancookbook this should be it!! 🙋🏻Her recipe's have never let me down and you don't have to spend all day in the kitchen to make them! >>Find yours<< @minimalistbaker
Stepping into summer with fresh sweet corn 🌽 that I added into a Mexican style salad - wrapped in a spring roll - and dipped in a tahini cilantro sauce. Aka - this meal was all over the place, but it tasted good, so that's what's important, right? .
Sauce from @kaleandcaramel . The rest is my crazy concoction
If you are into podcasts and a 🌱Vegan, then you have probably already heard about @richroll If not, you should definitely check out his channel. He interviews many people who subscribe to a #plantbased lifestyle and drops A TON of knowledge. I particularly ❤️'ed his interview with the remarkable @turiapitt - a young athlete who had the majority of her body burned in a fire 🔥 but chose to rise above. Check it out! ✌🏼#dailygreatnessmoments#bethechange
Trader Joe's never disappoints with their Vegan selection. I mean, vegan churros?!? C'mon! 💃🏻They come plain with two small cinnamon-sugar packets inside so you can sprinkle to your hearts content. They are:
•Slightly crispy on the outside
•Definitely too small to have just ☝️
|Bottom Line| 🗣Churros! Get yaaaaa churros! >>Find yours<< @traderjoes
Recipe for this quick and easy lunch or dinner is now up on my website. Link in bio. Perfect for the #nodietchallenge17 this week which is #noaddedsugar . What have you guys been making to stay on track?!
Confession 🙋🏽 I almost didn't buy this because I thought a Quinoa and Rice mixture was going to be bland BUT this mixture by @seedsofchange_us is everything but! It's:
•Balanced in savory and garlic flavor
•Al dente in texture
•Hearty and comforting
•Fast and portable!
|Bottom Line| These are great as a stand alone meal but would also make a hearty side dish. 🍚 I 💚 these and am on look out for more combos by them! >>Find yours<< @costco or @seedsofchange_us
When you eat processed foods (they have added chemicals) the body doesn’t recognize the chemicals -
so it stores it in the fat cells away from your vital organs, result = the fat cells just get bigger.
So if you can’t read it (understand it on the label) don’t eat it
Vegetable potstickers and refreshing crunchy cabbage-cucumber-radish salad.
I did pan fry the potstickers in coconut oil. I just love them browned on all sides! Also added few mushrooms and dulse. Yummy! 😋
I'm on my 3rd week of carb cycling and I have to say I love it so far. I actually never feel deprived! And I can already see my body responding!
And, surprisingly, it pushes me to be more creative in the kitchen!
This dish looks pretty amazing to me, I was satisfied and it's only 360 calories!
Hope you're eating something delicious too!! 😋😊
When your cauliflower rice dish comes out slammin' 🤤.. free of refined grains and sugars and full of whole ingredients, including a sprinkle of cilantro from the garden. 🌱this is a perfect example of a substitute for rice and pasta if you have an intolerance to wheat/grains or simply want to add extra veggies into your diet.
Finally the weather is warm and I can eat outside. I kept this bowl bowl super simple but it was still packed with flavour and totally sugar free for our third #nodietchallenge17 . I had curry flavour tofu (no added sugar in the ingredient label), romaine, and steamed asparagus. I made a homemade miso dressing to top it; I didn't really measure but it was a mix of sesame oil, white miso paste, powdered ginger, garlic, unseasoned rice vinegar, and soy free seasoning.
Perfect plant based appetizer or meal to serve at any Father's Day event for the last day of the #nodietchallenge17 week 2! These are all the ingredients for "build your own quinoa handrolls". Thanks to @carolyncohento for this delicious recipe idea and @curback for making this!
Sometimes you need a snack on the go! 🏃🏻💨THESE #vegaprotein shakes are a total grab n' go win. They are low in calories and high in protein. They are:

• bold in chocolate 🍫 taste
>>Bottom Line<< A great go to shake that's packed with vitamins and minerals! || I found mine at: on #amazon or @vega_team ||
I JUST discovered Tarte Cosmetics and I'm geeking out over all their vegan beauty products. They are high-quality, versatile and their packaging basically reminds me of unicorns 🦄 and mermaids 🌊 This💄is my current obsession. It's:

• thirst quenching 💦
• slightly fruity
• oh so satisfying!
>>Bottom line<< I'm a known sucker for all #lacroix drinks, but this tropical treat is my new favorite! I'm ready for more new flavors! || Find yours at: @target and @lacroixwater ||
Let's face it. Sometimes you just need a cookie fix 🍪. These caught my eye because of the 🍫 and ☕️ combo. (I mean what human over 18 doesn't love that?!) These cookies are: .
•mild in coffee flavor
•a great creamy-crunchy combo
>>Bottom line<< These are a great Oreo alternative when you need a trashy cookie fix. || I found mine at: @traderjoes ||
Three fun new things in this week's CSA! Top: a tromboncino squash. Bottom right: a Korean melon. Bottom left: shishito peppers. One of my favorite things about a CSA is how it introduces me to new favorites. ¡Tres cosas nuevas y divertidas en la caja granjera de esta semana! Arriba: una calabaza tromboncino. Abajo a la derecha: un melón coreano. Abajo a la izquierda: pimientos shishitos. Una de mis cosas favoritas sobre la caja granjera es cómo me introduce a los favoritos nuevos.
Playing in the kitchen. No recipe.
Just picked some ingredients and voila!
The only restriction was to keep it low carb.
Green Thai curry / miso soup with baby bok choy, broccoli, green onion, shishito pepper, spinach, mushrooms, tofu and kelp noodles. Garnished with lime juice, cilantro and sweet mini pepper.
Nourishing and flavorful. Will definitely repeat this one! 😍😋
How about you? Are you a recipe follower? *
💕 Acai berry smoothie 💕. Fuelling the girls up after school / pre sport clubs with these beauties! Great pre/post sport smoothie. 🌿Frozen banana and raspberries, pea protein, coconut water and acai powder.💚 Hydrating, filling, nutritious and yummy. Would be fab in ice lolly too. I have found my kids enjoy a smoothie more after school or after sport when they are really hungry. Great time to get loads of goodness in. I often add green veggies to the mix too.
Are you concerned that they you have to 'GIVE UP' certain foods?
NO - that's not the case ....
So I teach you that instead of 'giving up' you will, in fact, be enhancing, exploring and experiencing a vast array of gorgeous tastes to add to your meals.
When I teach you, it really won't be very long before you'll realize that you actually no longer want your previous foods - the vibrancy and exciting dishes you can have instead are so much more appealing.
Taking the first step is always the hardest with any new thing and this is no different.
