my favourite vegan recipes

I'm sure many of us have reached a point in our desire to eat healthier where we hit a wall and ask ourselves, What in the world do I eat today? When you open up the door to the fridge, the pantry and the stash (you know, the place where you hide your chocolate!), and you just can't find a thing to eat! It's not because there's nothing in there, but in trying to make the best food choice, we are stumped as to what that is. There are many opposing dietary theories out there but most can agree that the bottom line of choosing the best sources of macronutrients is to eat good fats, quality protein and unprocessed carbohydrates. Eat real, fresh and whole foods. And so, here are some of my favourite vegan recipes that helped me and continue to help me make the best choices for my body every day… and counteract the chocolate consumption! Bon appetit!

You can choose breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack options from this list of some of my favourite vegan recipes. Even if you start to eat one day a week from this list of plant-based meals your body will thank you inside and outside. You'll find your bowels moving more efficiently and your skin glowing brighter. If you like this little list of mine let me know and I'll make my favourite vegan recipes a regular blog post! I'd also love to see snaps if you decide to prepare any of these recipes. Connect with me on the ole Facebook and share the food love! 

green vegetable juice

1 cup filtered water (blender use only)
1 celery stalk
1 kale stalk, without stem
1/2 cucumber
1/2 lemon, with or without peel
1 cube ginger, with or without skin

Wash all ingredients before passing through a juicer or using a high-powered blender to blend with a cup of water and then strain through a nut milk bag or cheesecloth. Pour into a 500ml glass bottle or BPA-free/stainless steel drink bottle and top up with filtered water. Chill in the fridge. Sip slowly through a straw… and feel good! :-)
