    Cranberry Cinnamon Buns (Vegan)

    These are some nice buns! My baking game has elevated and I am now using yeast. Let me warn you, yeast is a fickle beast. Sometimes everything goes great and other times- it’s a complete disaster! The bright side of yeast is that traditional baking ingredients like eggs, are not required to raise the dough. Which is great news for all of us eating plant-based. Pin This For Later 🙂 Homemade cinnamon rolls have always intimidated me. In the past, I would just go for the kind that came in an aluminum cylinder. You probably know the kind. I’m always looking for new things to veganize. There are store bought…

    Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Scones (Vegan)

    These exceeded my expectations! This recipe is not something I had planned. I was making some basic scones on a Saturday morning, as one does, and I just so happened to have dried cranberries and vegan chocolate in my pantry. A star was born. Some of the best scones I have made, truly.  Yum, Yum, and Yummy are three words to describe these scones.  Pin This For Later! I used a blend of oat flour and wheat flour. You can use all-purpose if that is easier. For the fat, I used coconut oil. This made nice layers, but chilled margarine will have the same effect. The rest of the ingredients…

    Vegan Pasta Bake + Tofu Ricotta

    I used to roll my eyes when a food blogger talked about tofu ricotta and how it was so similar to traditional ricotta. I didn’t believe them to be honest. Cheesy lasagna and pasta bakes were something that I missed from before I was vegan. So I started experimenting with tofu ricotta. The first time I made it, it was garbage. It tasted so bad, but I finally have a recipe that tastes good and performs similarly to traditional ricotta.  Pin This For Later ⇓♥ This recipe is also gluten free. I used a pasta that was made out of green lentils and that’s why the picture has a green…

    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…

    Colorful Winter Chili (Vegan)

    In the warmer months, my diet is made up of tons of fruit. However, now that it is absolutely freezing; I crave warm foods like pasta, chili, and baked potatoes. I have posted a vegan chili recipe before, but this one is a little different. As the title suggests, it is colorful. It also has spices that are better in the colder months. This recipe is packed with protein and with spices that promote immune functioning. Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes (at the least) | Servings: 4-6 INGREDIENTS… 1 cup of black beans. 1 cup of garbanzo beans. 1/2 cup of corn. 1 cup of lima…

    Easy Vegan French Toast

    With more and more people starting a vegan lifestyle or eating more plant-based, I thought I would share a beginner vegan recipe that is also very delicious. I normally eat whole foods (not the store) but it is okay to indulge every once in a while, especially when in doing so you are spreading the vegan message. Anyway, this french toast really satisfied my cravings and no animal products were necessary. Onto the recipe… Serves: 2 | Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes INGREDIENTS:  2 slices of vegan friendly bread (french, multi-grain, etc. just check the label). 2 tbsp. of ground flaxseed (for the flax egg). 6…

    Vegan Christmas Dinner

    Eat, drink, and be merry! I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday season. My Christmas was filled with Christmas movies, vegan food, and laughter (from my family making fun of me). I’ve been very lucky because my family spoils me with vegan food. We didn’t have traditional holiday food this year, we just made our favorite dishes/appetizers. I know this post is a little late, but I wanted to share the recipes. I started out by making Potato Pancakes (Latkes). I was inspired by a recipe I found on Yummly, the recipe app. Here is the original recipe: vegnews Ingredients you will need: 3-4 russet potatoes (peeled and shredded). 1/2…

    Vegan Advice: Dorm Rooms

    Many people think “going vegan” is hard and I have noticed that a common reason/excuse is college. As a vegan and a college student, I feel I can offer some advice for other vegans in college or people in college wanting to eat more plant-based. I also made a youtube video of some advice and a grocery haul so please check that out also⇒https://youtu.be/hCk-GMHoy8k. Buy a crate for packaged and dry goods Most dorms don’t have a full kitchen or if they do, you are not allowed to keep your food in the cabinets for long periods of time. I suggest getting a crate or box to put food that…

    Current Nutrition Favorites

    I’ve always prioritized my health. Lately, I have valued healthy living even more. I want to share some of my nutrition favorites. Keep in mind that I am vegan and my dietary needs might be different than yours. Do what you think is best based on your diet/lifestyle. Zinc Because I eat only plant foods, it is sometimes harder to obtain metals such as Zinc. I started taking zinc because I was experiencing breakouts on the face even though there were no changes in my skincare routine or nutrition. If you are suffering from non-hormonal breakouts on the face; it could be an indication of low Zinc, Vitamin A, or…
