when you’re an adult turned vegan any chocolate bars that may of been your favourite back in the day are now off the table. I had a few faves like snickers, twirl, flake, time out, boost and bounty to name a few. I know there are some vegan versions on the market currently, but being that I can’t just pick them up in regular supermarkets, they are a tad pricey and still contain a lot of ingredients that aren’t beneficial, i much prefer to create my own. As you know I am a big fan of creating things myself they are so much more satisfying and you know exactly what it contains. Lately I have been craving a “snickers” caramel, peanuts and chocolate is just the perfect match, so naturally I jumped into the kitchen to satisfy those taste buds. So lets show you how you can get a piece of this nutty action.
So tis almost that time where we give gifts, hang with the fam and stuff our faces silly. Well I’m sure y’all know by now I’m down for anything where good food is involved, so I got a little something for you. Now Ive been making brownies for a hot minute played around with the recipe and done a few variations on flavour but these were hands down the best. These are perfect for Christmas time with the family, Chocolatey moist brownies paired with gooey caramel and chewy marshmallows food heaven at its finest. I used to love me a flump back in the days, so being able to get my hands on vegan marshmallows well I just had to throw it down in the kitchen with them. Right let’s get brownie creating but don’t eat them all save some for Christmas morning at least.
Yes it’s that funny looking stuff that many turn their noses up at, but will happily eat what once was a living breathing thing. I admit it strange stuff but it is so versatile and a protein source, I have used it to make many things but I must say this is fave!! as a plant muncher it is easy to get hooked on this stuff because sometimes you want something a little more. I say moderation is your best friend as with any other food. tofu initially it can be a tricky thing to get right, i failed many a time in previous years. but now i can give you my fail proof recipe, when you get it RIGHT it’s so yummy and you will never turn your nose up at tofu again!
So it’s safe to say that summer has officially left us the fresher air is flowing, colourful leaves decorating the streets and plans of movies nights with lots of yummy foods are in play. Heating is on, thick socks and extra blankets have come out of hiding. It’s also that time where we get to cover up and conceal those food bellies. Indulge a little because food is pretty awesome in my opinion BUT LET’S NOT PIG OUT 🙂 . Autumn is that time where the flavours get deeper bursts of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg fill the air so here is my little gift to y’all, my take on a classic pecan pie with a twist…..
So it’s official summer is sliding out and autumn is moon walking in. bring on the comforting foods that are warm, yummy and you just want to dive right into. of course i have your back with the answer to a delicious breakfast that is perfect for the colder days. It is filling, creamy, nutritious and very easy to make, also you can pimp it out how ever you like. I present to you Quinoa porridge, okay let’s drop some of the nutritional benefits first. Quinoa pronounced keen-wa ISN’T a grain but actually a seed, it is a complete protein that has all of the essential amino acids that we need. It is packed with protein, fiber, iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. Pretty good stuff it will keep you full and fuel you nicely.
