Vegan Apple Cinnamon Mugcake

Before becoming vegan, I used to eat a lot of those protein packed mugcakes for snacks. But I thought, how could I still make a satisfying mugcake without the whey protein and egg? Actually a lot simpler than you think! I don’t even remember how I came up with this delicious treat but it sure…

Lentil Bolognese + Zucchini Pasta

Think eating vegan is boring or tasteless? HA. Think again my friend. Eating whole, plant-based foods has made me feel so much more energized and gives me all the nutrients my body needs to thrive!

Baked Falafels

I remember the first time I saw a falafel, I was totally repulsed and turned off by the idea of a “fried ball of chickpeas”. I was about 6-7 years old and very naive to the fact that falafels are basically PURE MEDITERRANEAN BLISS. What’s my favorite part about these special, homemade falafels though? For…

Peanut Butter Muffins

    Ever get a strong craving for a muffin? I don’t know where it came from but one day I really wanted something homemade for a snack.

Crêpes

I have always been curious about crêpes. Never knew what they were like… We have never been the family that goes out to breakfast so a crêpe was so foreign to me!    Crêpes are a French pancake usually filled with cream, fruit, chocolate, etc.    <—- These are filled with yogurt and fruit drizzled…
