Matcha Lattes are perfect for the morning time and are basically the new coffee. They are easy to make and most importantly help you feel magical and ready to take on the day.
Plantain Chips and Vegan Guacamole. BEST. COMBO. EVER. Plantain chips have way more nutritional value than Corn Tortilla Chips, which makes this a perfect healthy alternative. Plantains when cooked have around the same goodies nutritionally speaking as potatoes except plantains are higher in fiber and are richer in magnesium and potassium.
If I go out to eat and the restaurant has sweet potato fries, you know what I'm ordering, no hesitation. I don't know why any place that serves regular fries wouldn't also serve sweet potato fries; they're so much better, and can be enjoyed in so many different ways (desert fries, lots of yummy stuff on top, etc.) That's why, when I finally had the realization that I could just make my own at home, I was so excited.
Oh how times have changed. Over the last decade the amount of vegan options in vegas has flourished! About 10 years ago I remember my only real option was to get fresh groceries at the store, and fill my sink in my hotel room with ice to keep my fruit/veggies fresh (like most people do with their beer), because there was close to zero good vegan options in vegas.
On a day-to-day basis I usually eat super clean, so when I do decide to have a drink my body doesn't like anything about it which usually leads to a hangover (which is pretty much the worst feeling on the planet).
So of course, I have done my research and made a list of my 5 "healthy" hangover remedies.
It's national sushi day (June 18), and what better way to celebrate the mouth-watering food than with a vegan version? This is my all-time favorite type of vegan sushi, and although it does take a little hunting in the grocery store for the Asian eggplant (one of the weirdest foods I've ever worked with), it's well worth it. I've even been told by my non-vegan friends that it tastes exactly like sushi with fish in it!
Okay, so the summer treats have definitely been rolling in lately, and I now have another one to add to the list! Aside from the usual fruit and tropical flavors that have been posted for these summer treats, this dessert will 100% satisfy those random, and often chocolate cravings that we get with #noregrets. Chocolate coconut nice cream! This nice cream is so delicious, rich in flavor, Vegan (duh, obviously) and perfect for those hot summer days when you’re just laying and relaxing by the pool; and the best part is it’s so easy to make!
Some days you feel like spending hours in the kitchen, taking lots of time to make a complex dish and make it look nice. Other days, you just want to eat.
Thankfully, there's a happy medium, and it's this nice cream! Everybody by now must know that I'm in love with banana-based vegan ice cream, called nice cream. It's super versatile, and lets me turn my favorite smoothie flavors into ice cream with only a few short minutes of blending. This one is the simplest possible one, as it only includes two ingredients, so you can get creative with how you serve it!
