The first post in my "ask a plant-based nutritionist" series has gone live on my website (link in profile!). today i'm answering the question "what can i do to substitute meat, cheese, and butter in my diet without just swapping them for processed vegan-versions of the same?”. if you have a question for this plant-based nutritionist, leave it in the comments below! 🌱
I’m obsessed with these raw oil-free vegan “ranch” kale chips that i made in my food dehydrator. they are amazing. 🙌🏻. if you want to add more greens into your diet, try kale chips - they’re an easy way to eat half a head of kale in one sitting 😉
Imperfect avocados // do you ever buy imperfect fruit or vegetables? a few years ago, i heard about a grocery store in europe that had a section of imperfect produce that was about 30% less than the regular price. the food was just as tasty and healthy, but it wasn’t up to the perfect grocery store standards. i loved the idea - reduce food waste and save a bit of money! i’m so excited to see one of canada’s largest grocery store chains start to include imperfect produce in their stores. these imperfect avocados are way cheaper than the standard “pretty” ones - about $0.80 each vs $1.25. i have to admit, when i bought a bag of them a few weeks ago, i was wondering if they would be any good due to how they looked, but then they ripened and i cut into one and it was perfect - and so were all the rest. if you haven’t tried imperfect produce, i suggest you do! it’s a great way to save money and reduce food waste.
I chatted with brigitte from @vegan.family.kitchen recently about vegan nutrition for pregnancy and the strategies i use to ensure my toddler gets well rounded meals (despite her being in the typical picky two year old phase 😉). check out her profile for the link to the full interview.
I'm so excited to share this recipe with you - the best herb and garlic cultured vegan cream cheese ever! this is simply one of my favourite recipes and i'm sure you'll love it too. it takes a bit of time, but your patience will be rewarded with delicious vegan cream cheese. and, i mean, what's a better reward that that? 😉 (link in bio)
Just a little reminder that what we eat definitely effects how we look. if you’re dealing with acne, dry skin, or other complexion problems, the issue likely stems from what you’re eating. be sure to include lots of fresh fruit and vegetables in your diet along with some healthy fats (nuts, seeds, avocado) and drink plenty of water each day.
