This is what we had for dinner tonight (rice paper rolls with ginger peanut dipping sauce) but it didn’t look quite as yummy 😅 because with a baby in the house, sometimes dinner is a slap dash job. Especially when said baby insists on being attached at the hip 👶 #vegan#mumlife#veganmum#instafood
I’m sure most of you know how delicious miso eggplant is, but have you tried with with cauliflower and tofu? It’s amazing! 😍
Just coat them all in a mix of red miso, tamari, rice wine vinegar, chili flakes, oil and water to thin it and roast in the oven until caramelised and delicious. I serve it with rice, sautéed Asian greens and spring onion 🍆🍃🍚
Spinach and green lentil dahl from the weekend when it was nice and mild 😋 This is a really simple dahl to make and is full of flavour 🍃🍚 I use fresh onion, garlic and ginger as the base and then sauté off some spices. Add in the lentils, canned tomatoes and good quality coconut milk (I love @ayamaustralia as it doesn’t have any additives, just coconut milk and a little water) I also add some water and then the spinach at the end with salt and pepper to season 😋 I’ll link the full recipe in my profile 💛 #vegan#dahl#curry#instafood

Cold fall days deserve hot chocolate. I used the Hot Chocolate + Turmeric mix from @omg_superfoods. I really love their products because they pack in tons of nutrients. The addition of turmeric and maca to the mixes help with increased energy and reduce inflammation. Which I think is extremely helpful to combat all of the holiday eating! If you want to get their products use the code CHOCOLATE at checkout for 15% off a hot chocolate mix and one other product. The full recipe for this spiced superfood hot cocoa is on my blog! Sending you all lots of love 💜💜 • .

Around eleven years ago I decided to boycott the meat industry because I found out about the evils that go along with it. Just recently I realized that my Pescetarian diet was great for doing my part in saving the mammals I care about, but was not doing enough to help the environment. After seeing footage of a polar bear that has been directly affected by climate change @sea_legacy, I've decided that I can do more to help.
So... instead of sitting here and crying for all of the animals that HAVE starved and ARE starving because of our selfish lifestyles, I'm going to try to change mine. It'll be a gradual change and a great challenge, but at least I can take pride in knowing that I'm trying to make a difference.
Beef vs Beans
See Who Wins?🖕
Are You Surprised Though???
In a recent study from the University of Copenhagen, scientists gave 43 young men several meals in which the main source of protein alternated between patties made from veal/pork and patties made from fava beans. Half of the time, the bean meals contained the same amount of protein as the meat meals. The other half, the bean meals had less protein.
What they found out was, the bean meals had more “staying power.” They provided more stomach-filling satisfaction than the meat meals, which curbed food intake at the next meal. Obviously, that’s a very important asset if you’re trying to shed weight.
Also, when it comes to hunger-curbing power, fiber may be more impressive than protein. Noted the study’s lead author Anne Raben in a University of Copenhagen press release: “Interestingly, a vegetable-based meal [the fava bean patties] with lower protein content was as satiating and palatable as an animal-based meal [the meat patties] with higher protein content.”
There’s one other nice bonus that this beans-vs-meat study shows. Not only are bean burgers better at filling the belly, they do it on fewer calories. A typical fast food meat patty tallies up about 230 calories (That’s for a regular-size patty. Large meat patties average 426 calories). Bean burgers, by contrast, average just 115 calories.
A bean-rich diet may even help you live longer. The longest-living communities in the world, from Campodimele, Italy, to Okinawa, Japan, eat diets full of beans and bean-based foods like tofu. If you want to live to 100, and live well all along the way, eat beans, encourage nutrition researchers worldwide.
