Pancake Tuesday has got me feeling some kind of way 🥺 Let’s just say I’m feeling very nostalgic. Growing up every Tuesday my grandma would make us pancakes for dinner with chocolate chips + coins (don’t worry they were sterilized 🧐). As time passed I started to make pancakes for the whole fam. Hitting my body with pancakes for breakfast and dinner because I can! I used @birchbenders mix cause who really has time to make a batch from scratch on Tuesday morning Hope you have a day filled with love and gratitude!
Post-bike training, pre-study energy refuel this weekend🤤 Quick and easy toast with @veganz chocolate spread topped with bananas and raspberries😋 Delicious combination of healthy fruits and maybe not so healthy chocolate, but once in awhile that’s ok🙈
Glad that my dining hall is serving red river cereal this morning because it’s been a while! They made it slightly watery today but nothing could stop me from making it into a nice bowl. Just another classic combo of banana and strawberries with nut butter, and I also added some chia seeds, cacao nibs, and a 90% crisp mint dark chocolate square for more texture!
2020: One of the most frequent questions I am asked is, is shopping harder when you become vegan because of lack of variety. In my personal experience the answer has to be ‘No, it’s not harder at all’. I am considered an ethical vegan (I am against animal cruelty which is why I choose not to eat animals). That means that my being ‘plant based’ isn’t primarily focussed on health. So whereas I am very disciplined when it comes to my love of animals and not contributing to their suffering, I am not so disciplined when it comes to giving up processed foods, treats and snacks (even if they are vegan). So my diet, although completely free of animal products, isn’t strictly healthy. I incorporate lots of fruit and veg, a variety of protein sources, along with sweet treats so I don’t feel restricted in any way. I am into my third year of being vegan, and although I do have to check the labels of food occasionally, it’s really no different from having to check for the sugar or fat content (which most people do). Most supermarkets now have clearly marked vegan/plant based sections so finding animal alternatives is super easy and YouTube has a wealth of information on how to transition from an animal based diet. Going vegan and refusing to contribute to animal cruelty is a very personal choice, which like any healthy lifestyle requires discipline and dedication, however the benefits to you, to the animals and to the environment is absolutely worth it 🌱🌿🧘🏽♀️🌿🌱 #selfcare #slimmingworlduk #quorn #easytobevegan #wickedkitchen #veganrecipes #selflove #cauldronfoods #inspiration #tesco #foodporn #lindamccartney #selfworth #swuk #10caljelly #recovery #whatveganseat #vegetarian #mentalhealth #swideas #foodblogger #lazyvegan #vegan #plantbased #veganlife #plantbaseddiet #vivera

This is a battered tofu asian fusion taco from Publico! So many interesting flavors in there- peanut slaw, pickled onion, corn tortilla -it REALLY hit the spot and wasn’t too heavy at all! The real star of this lunch, however, was actually the fried cauliflower that didn’t make it on camera because it was eaten so fast🤤😅
What are your thoughts on fusion food Does it never quite compare to the history behind a classic dish Or does it show innovation
