    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. Meatless crumbles or other vegan meat (I used half a package).…

    High Protein Breakfast Recipes // Vegan

    “But where do you get your protein?”. Immediately roll my eyes. Every vegan hates this question because nearly every whole plant food has protein. “But Kaley…What about essential amino acids?”. If you eat a variety of foods, then you have nothing to worry about. The only time you wouldn’t get an adequate amount of protein is if you are starving yourself (eating well under 1000 calories). Every vegan on the planet probably hears comments or questions like these. Most people don’t realize that plant-based foods/meals can still be high-protein. I try to eat higher protein in the morning because my days are busy. I do not necessarily recommend a high…

    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…

    Thai Peanut Noodles // Vegan

    This is something that sounds complicated, but really this recipe is incredibly easy. I make peanut noodles whenever I need a quick meal that is very filling and nutritious. This recipe is plant-based of course, but carnivores will also like this. I used a meat substitute, but that is not even necessary. Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 15-20 minutes Printer Friendly Version HERE INGREDIENTS… 1/2 package of rice noodles or preferred noodle. 1/2 yellow onion. 1 cup of spinach. 1/2 bag of frozen stir fry vegetables or… 1 cup of broccoli. 1 carrot.

    3 Simple Breakfast Ideas // Vegan

    I’m not a morning person at all, but I never miss breakfast. I basically stick to 3 meals that I have on rotation. They each take less than 10 minutes and will truly brighten your morning. My favorite breakfast right now is vegan yogurt with various toppings. You can basically add whatever you want on top. I typically add fruit, granola, and some seeds for healthy fat. If you don’t want to use soy yogurt or coconut yogurt, you can just have cereal and fruit with nuts/seeds. Another favorite of mine is oatmeal. I don’t eat plain oatmeal, because honestly it’s gross. I like to add peanut butter and cocoa…
