I know dessert for breakfast might seem like a naughty way to start your day but I promise you, this creamy Carrot Cake Overnight Oatmeal is packed full of goodness! It has everything I want in a satisfying breakfast: chia seeds for protein & omega 3 fats, oats for fiber and slow-release carbs (hello flat belly!), apple and raisins for natural sweetness, and lots of warming spices like cinnamon, ginger and turmeric. An easy festive breakfast for Easter - or any time of the year if you ask me!
Who’s in the mood for Asian Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce? These vegan rainbow rolls make a great light lunch or colorful appetizer. Creamy avocado, sweet mango, crunchy veggies and fluffy quinoa in a soft rice paper wrap… YUM! They’re really easy to make too. All you need to do is cut some veggies, make your creamy peanut sauce and get rollin’. Ready to get rollin’?
Have you ever tried matcha powder in your breakfast smoothie? Simon’s not the hugest fan of matcha but I really like its strong green tea flavor, and this Sweet Matcha Breakfast Shake is super nutritious and delicious. It’s sweet, creamy and the matcha flavor is really subtle. I love that it has some healthy fats, protein and tons of minerals from the tea and the greens. The perfect breakfast to start your day full of energy!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Who’s spending some quality time with a special someone today? To be honest, Simon and I don’t really celebrate this lovey-dovey holiday but any occasion is a good reason to enjoy tasty food in good company. I’ve created a three-course vegan Valentine’s Day menu to give you some inspiration + I added some extra ideas for sweet snacks. After all, one can never have too much chocolate on Valentine’s Day, right?
Can you believe it’s almost Valentine’s Day? It’s crazy how quickly the year is passing by! Today I’ve got a super simple recipe for you that you can make as a sweet Valentine treat or a late-night snack any time of the year: Salted Chocolate Caramel Popcorn. It was Simon who was the first to try this recipe, he’s usually the one who’s making popcorn on movie nights. It only has four simple ingredients + I’ll show you the magic trick to make perfect popcorn every single time!
This Sweet Potato Black Bean Buddha Bowl with Tahini Sauce is something you can have for lunch, for dinner or even for breakfast - if you like savory breakfasts at least. Buddha bowls are usually a combination of rice, beans and lots of vegetables. I replaced the rice with quinoa and added oven-roasted sweet potato as well. By adding sweet veggies like beetroot, carrot, sweet potato or pumpkin to your meals, you’ll be able to beat sugar cravings and stay satisfied longer. They even help me to lift my mood!
Do you like to have something sweet in the morning but do you want to keep it healthy and nourishing as well? These Chocolate Cherry Overnight Oats taste just like dessert for breakfast and they’re really filling too. I love the combination of the soft creamy oats with the crunchy granola and the sweet & sour flavor of the cherries against the bitterness of the chocolate. If you’re a fan of dark chocolate, I think you’ll love this breakfast!
Happy 2017! I know it’s the time to start talking about New Year’s resolutions, but I actually believe that any month of the year is a good time to treat yourself to a creamy breakfast shake like today’s Good Morning Energy Smoothie. To me, starting the day with a nourishing (and equally delicious!) breakfast isn’t about getting skinny or burning ‘excess fat’. If drinking a green smoothie in the morning will help you to achieve a natural healthy weight, that’s cool! I actually have it because it helps me to wake up feeling energized and refreshed + beat sugar cravings during the day. Either way, I hope you’ll love this breakfast shake as much as I do!
Looking for a delicious dessert to serve on New Year’s Eve? This Mocha Chocolate Mousse makes a fabulous sweet party treat! It’s super creamy and flavorful, and it only has five simple ingredients. You can prepare it ahead of time and serve it nice and chilled. That way it will taste even better and you’ll be able to fully enjoy the party. Happy New Year!
Since Christmas is just around the corner, I wanted to give you some healthy holiday inspiration! I’ve created three vegan Christmas menus with drinks, appetizers, main dishes & of course desserts. Every single recipe is quick and easy to make, gluten free and really yummy - am I allowed to say that about my own recipes? Have a very merry Christmas!
