Tsampa is a type of roasted flour, usually made from barley. According to sources compiled by the Whole Grains Council, barley is particularly beneficial at regulating blood glucose and cholesterol levels. Tsampa is a staple in Tibetan and Nepalese cuisine. Like oats, tsampa can be prepared as a breakfast porridge - just like this vegan coconut tsampa recipe.
Tthese vegan brownies are the perfect way to satisfy your cravings. Why?
- They're healthier for your body. This vegan brownie recipe is full of healthy fats from avocado and dark chocolate
- They're healthy for your mind. Rather than resisting your cravings and bingeing later on, it's better to indulge on healthier substitutions. Plus, chocolate makes us plain happy (they stimulate the release of endorphins)!
If you're cringing because you heard the word avocado and chocolate together in the same sentence, don't be scared. Try these vegan brownies - I promise you'll love them. I used to be the biggest skeptic whenever I saw avocado on the ingredient list for dessert recipes - they aren't so bad!
Most New Year's resolutions involve healthy eating in some way or another. This vegan power smoothie couldn't be healthier (if I had to say so myself)! It will provide all of the energy that you need to kick some butt in 2016. These ingredients will keep you full, helping you to stay away from sugary and salty snacks.
This past month, I found out that I might suffer from fructose malabsorption. Since I love fruit, this was a pretty big deal for me. I wanted to cut out fructose as much as I could, so smoothies were out of the question. Thus, I returned to an old favourite of me: vegan chocolate waffles! The recipe I am sharing with you today is the absolute bomb and I have already received a lot of compliments from non-vegans saying that these are one of the best waffles they ever tried! Regardless of whether you are vegan or not, you have to try these vegan chocolate waffles.
This is my absolute favourite vegan chocolate smoothie of all time. It's a recipe from my first vegan cookbook - it immediately stood out to me and the book has been my companion for almost 2 years. You need to make this vegan chocolate smoothie: it's quick, delicious, and so versatile.
Last month, I was OBSESSED with porridge. I basically had the very same vegan porridge for breakfast every day. Not every other day, but EVERY day. I'm trying to wean myself off of oats — even if it's just for a little while. But let's be honest: a (vegan) human being cannot stay away from porridge. I will probably be back on the oat train very soon. I thought that it was only fitting to share my Treat Yourself Vegan Porridge recipe with you. It sums up this past month perfectly— and I even got a few requests for it.
