    Inauthentic Vegan Falafel

    I researched a lot of falafel recipes. Many of them said things like “you must use chickpea flour” or “canned chickpeas WILL NOT work”. That’s a bit dramatic. I enjoy authentic falafel; but when I make it at home, I am not going to go out of my way to make a glorified veggie patty. So if you are wondering why “inauthentic” is in the title, it’s because this is a more Americanized and forgiving recipe. Nonetheless, it is delicious and healthy.

    Vegan Hamburger Helper

    This brings back memories! As a kid, I had some sort of hamburger helper dish about once a week. I always looked forward to it. I haven’t seen a vegan version in grocery stores, so I decided to just make one up. This recipe is family friendly, easy, and it’s great comfort food. I hope you enjoy it! Pin This ↓ Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Difficulty: Easy Cuisine: American, Vegan Printer Friendly Version Here Ingredients: ½ box of whole wheat macaroni or penne pasta. 1 block of Daiya Cheddar Cheese or other preferred vegan cheese.

    Food Photography in September

    It’s that time again! Welcome to the September edition of my monthly vegan food porn series. I’m starting to get the hang of this food photography thing. Definitely far from a professional level, but you have to start somewhere. I’ve been more consistent with my props and backgrounds and I feel like this has improved my results. I also do minimal edits.  I adjust the color in certain areas and then I slightly adjust the saturation and contrast. Then, I apply a filter that isn’t too dramatic. Some of the more simplistic photos, I took on my phone and it’s just me holding the bowl/plate. I like to have a…

    Sweet Treats for Vegans

    Following a vegan lifestyle shouldn’t feel limiting! You don’t need to say goodbye to your favorite treats when you adopt a plant-based diet. Only a few easy substitutions are needed! I have three sweet treats that I want to share. They are fully vegan and beginner friendly. Pin This ⇓♥ 1. Lemon Blueberry Bread I cheated on this one because it’s barely homemade. This is more of a food hack. Most baking mixes are accidentally vegan. Instead of using eggs use a flax egg (1 tbsp of flax seeds with 2-3 tbsps of water = 1 egg) or 1/2 of a mashed banana. If the box calls for milk, just use…

    Quick Vegan Meals | Summer Edition

    Summer can be a very busy time. Most of us can’t be bothered to cook elaborate meals, especially when we would rather be outside or hanging out with friends. These meals are super simple and also fresh and light (inspired by summer). I hope you enjoy these healthy vegan meals. Pin This ♥⇓ 1. Greek Orzo Salad This is something I ate a lot prior to being vegan. My family used to make this with chicken and feta cheese, but now I just omit those ingredients. This is a good dish to meal prep because it serves about 2-4 and it stays well in the refrigerator. Ingredients… 1/2 Package of orzo…

    This Month in Food Photography: July

    It’s that time again! Time for me to share my food photos, because I’m that person. I used to eat food, but now I just take pictures of it. Just joking, I still eat my food (30 minutes later). People seem to enjoy these posts, so I am continuing this series! Since I’ve settled into my new place I have kept a fairly consistent layout/background, in the past I was all over the place. It’s definitely not perfect, but I am liking how my photos turn out most of the time.   Here are all my food photos from July! I typically do a darker background and minimal props. I…

    Pasta 3 Ways // Vegan

    I have said it before and I will say it again, “I LOVE CARBS”. The two best things about being vegan are 1) I don’t cause harm to animals and 2) I eat as much pasta as I care for. Pasta can be a versatile and simple dinner. I wanted to share my three favorite ways to have pasta. These will be great for you if you are short on time or just wanting comfort food. Pin This ↓♥ The first is Hummus Pasta. This might sound weird, but I promise it is so creamy and delicious. Basically, you cook your preferred pasta according to the package instructions. I typically use…

    This Month in Food Photography: June (V)

    Who doesn’t love food porn? Part of my blog (most of my blog) is about sharing the vegan lifestyle. A lot of this includes food, but I realized I haven’t shared my recent food photos. I moved to a new place, so I am still figuring out the lighting situation. Also, I have been figuring out backgrounds that I like. These are not perfect, but I am pleased with them and hopefully you are too. Pin This ⇓♥ If you want the recipes, you can check out my instagram or you can comment or email. As you can probably tell, I prefer breakfast photos. This is because there are typically more…
