    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…

    Vegan “Tuna” Salad

    This summer has made me so nostalgic. I have especially been thinking about foods I used to eat in the summertime. For me, summer reminds me of family barbecues. At these barbecues, people bring all sorts of dishes covered in mayonnaise. This could be tuna salad, potato salad, chicken salad, crab salad, etc. The way I describe it sounds so gross, but since being vegan I have missed some of these dishes. I have learned that garbanzo beans or chickpeas can often serve as a mock meat. That’s why it works so great for recipes like these. Printer Friendly Version HERE INGREDIENTS… 1 can of garbanzo beans drained. 1-3 tablespoons…

    “Do you only eat salads?”. I laugh every time someone asks this. Eating vegan doesn’t have to be boring. I have proved this time and time again.

    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…

    Banana Pecan Granola

    I love granola, but I don’t always love random ingredients in store-bought granola. I was always intimidated by homemade granola, but hated how most granola contained honey, corn syrup, or refined sugar. I took the plunge and starting making my own. It is so simple to make and the ingredients can be found in most pantries.
