Tom and I attended a fun hands on class at Zest restaurant last night. We learned how to make veggie wraps using rice wraps. Angelique demonstrated how to assemble the wrap and we got to make our own. I've made Vietnamese spring rolls but I learned some good tips last night that make it easier and prettier! You can buy white or brown rice spring roll wraps at Asian markets or Whole Foods. Use room temperature water to dip them in briefly and then place them on a cutting board. As you are filling the wrap it softens and by the time you are ready to roll it up it's soft but not too soft. Don't over fill it because then it will tear. Sprinkle the center of the wrap with toasted sesame seeds or sunflower seeds these look so pretty when the wrap is finished. Next it's all about the layers, place fresh basil, mint or cilantro, leaf lettuce - make sure you break the spine off and tuck it inside the soft part of the lettuce, a spread or hummus on top of the lettuce acts like glue for the next layer of fresh thinly sliced veggies like, red onion, red bell pepper, mushrooms, jalapeño peppers, zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, quinoa, Chana beans. You could add thin slices of mango too. Roll up like an enchilada or burrito and enjoy! It would be a fun hands on activity to let everyone wrap 'n roll their own at your next family/friends pot luck! #zest#vegan#uwlfood#chefajsultimateweightloss#wfpb#engine2#starchivore#forksoverknives#springrolls#springroll#ricewraps#healthyfood @zestkitchen.rocklin
Introducing Porto Blanco 😁 So delicious and smooth. Combination of pear, peach, mango aroma & flavors finishing off with a very pleasurable light citrus note. Coming soon to Taste Vegan in Phoenixville ! Cheers !
Hello new followers! 👋 Big thanks to @veganbowls 🤗😚 for sharing one of my photos. This is one of my favourite accounts because, as you would expect, they feature nothing but gorgeous vegan bowls. 😍🥗👌 That is my kind of meal-time inspiration. 🤤 Check them out!
For lunch today, I had brown rice cooked with bay leaf (so good), sautéed veggies and a little salad. Check my stories to see the details of everything in this bowl. 😉
Best start to my day, every single day. When we're traveling, we manage to eat loads of greens, but can't get our smoothies in. It makes a big difference. Here's 2 c spinach, 1 c parsley, cucumber, celery (normally use celery leaves too but we're fresh out), frozen berries, 1 banana, and 600 ml water. It changes a little every day depending on what we've got in stock. On our way to the Kreuzberg market now!!! 🍌🍏🍐🥒🥕🍅🍓🌽🌿 #greensmoothie#energydrink#vegan#wfpb
Brunch Box 🌻 For my third installment of #plantbasedkidslunch collab with @intentionalism @marypardoux and @veganfoodforoskar I've packed a few make-ahead breakfast favorites. Breakfast for lunch can never be a bad thing, especially when it includes gluten free oat waffle sticks with "caramel dip" (almond butter, maple syrup, and a splash of almond milk), roasted sweet and red potatoes, homemade vegan bean and hempseed sausage patties, and a juicy red plum. The waffles are based on a recipe from the blog, and the "sausage" patties are adapted from a recipe from @vegetariantimesmag. Everything was made ahead of time, making this essentially a lunch of leftovers, which I love! Also, it's all finger foods, which my daughter loves. What's in your lunch box? Be sure to share/tag your ideas using #plantbasedkidslunch 🎒

Happy FriYay! 😁Thought this star quote was appropriate for this blueberry smoothie bowl featuring some star fruit. We generally buy it once in a while because it is expensive, but when we do we enjoy it very much for its unique sweet and tart flavors. The blueberry smoothie is a mix of 3 frozen bananas with about 1 cup of frozen blueberries. Topped with oats, star fruit, frozen berries, seeds and tahini. With tropical fruit it only seems appropriate to eat it out of a beautiful coconut bowl right? 😜

Zucchini Muffins • My Plant Powered Kids ❤️ love helping to make muffins...I just had to distract them as I snuck in 6 cups of zucchini 😂 They are ❤️-ing them for breakfast right now - so delicious and moist! 😋
Inspired by @simplyrecipes and @nutritionistdeb_rhn
Here's my recipe - makes 24 muffins:
6 cups shredded fresh zucchini (I didn't peel them as I wanted the green to poke through)
2/3 cup melted coconut oil
1 cup maple syrup
2 flax eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups oat flour
1/4 cup each flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp hearts (I literally put these in everything now!)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup each chopped walnuts and pecans (optional)
Using just a spoon or whisk, mix dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls, adding zucchini last.
Add dry to wet, then nuts (if using) and stir gently.
Bake in lined muffin trays for 20-25 minutes at 350. Remove from tray and let cool.
Breakfast: Porridge: oat, rye, barely,spelt,khorasan,bran,millet,flax seed,quinoa, brown sugar, apples,raisins and cinnamon with toasted baguette... who said breakfast had to be boring? #wfpb#vegan#veganbreakfast#yummy
Happy Friday!! 🎉 If any of you are like me and get peckish between mealtimes, trail mix is a really fantastic healthy snack to have on hand. It’s super simple to throw together, doesn’t need to be refrigerated so is really easy to store/carry around, PLUS nuts and seeds are filled with healthy fats and nutrients making them an ideal snack 👌 Last week when I was away on camp I had a bag of this on me at all times, and it definitely helped fuel me through the week! I copied the ingredients I used ⬇️ (it's so easy I don't know if I can even call it a recipe 😂), but you can really just use any nuts, seeds, dried fruits or anything else you fancy. Do you like trail mix? What would you put into your own mix? #trailmix#nuts#seeds#easysnack ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*1/2 cup walnuts
*1/2 cup almonds
*1/2 cup cashews
*1/2 cup sunflower seeds
*1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
*1/2 cup raisins/cranberries
*1/2 cup dried apricots
*1/2 cup mulberries ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
~ Mix it all together in a bowl and enjoy! This ratio is a bit heavier on nuts and seeds, so feel free to add more dried fruit if you want even more sweetness in every handful 🤗
IT'S THE FREAKIN' WEEKEND, baby. I'm about to have me some fun! ✨🌟 And by fun I mean some serious chill with this epic raw vegan grazing platter, a kombucha or two + movies with my main man 🍓🍇 Usually I make my own raw crackers + cheese, but this week has been so super busy, so I grabbed some @finefettlefood crackers, @sproutandkernel cheese, @ndmedjooldates + some @remedykombucha 🌿🍃 Gotta love that you can eat DELISH food like this that's not only healthy but vegan 👌🙌💛 #rawvegan#friyay#vegancheese
Huntly to Dundee with @nutrition_facts_org -
Dr Michael Greger always posts informative and evidence based videos of plant based nutrition. He recently spoke to @plantbasednews & made a comment that Big Dairy/Meat aren't involved in any big conspiracy - they're literally just businesses trying to sell things (in fact the exploitation of animals/negative health and environmental impacts are pretty clear to see if you take the time to look) There's no money in Big Broccoli, and other perishable yet healthy items. So it's up to us to decide what we buy into really.

Day 5 - #juicecleanse . Had some alkalizing vegetable broth as soon as I woke up. For breakfast a juice with apples, carrots, oranges and a lime ⚡️ watched a mind blowing documentary "the human experience" on chemicals... ( well I guess not really mind blowing since I always assumed how many chemicals we get in contact with/put on our body/ingest/inhale - but to see actual studies and how the government refuses to make a change really blows my mind 😡 ) definitely a must watch.
Fruits, fruits fruits!!🍎🍊🍏🍓🍇
Fruits are natures pre-workout, multivitamin, disease preventive, digestive and did I mention they taste so dumb good!🌱🙏 -
Due to the high carbohydrate percent fruits are often avoided in many diets, meaning that many people are missing out on essential nutrients and the many health benefits fruits provide. -
It's recommended that adults eat 2 cups or 2 pieces of fruit a day. Are you get enough fruit in you diet?
