Have you ever tried to make your own plant based milk? 😄 Here is a quick recipe for making your own oatmilk! I love how fast and easy it is 🧡 You can store the oat milk in the fridge for a few days. The diy oat milk is vegan, made from local resources and saves packaging - even if you buy the oat flakes in a paper packaging you save a lot of waste compared to the oat milk from the supermarket! Will you try it? ☺️

This is my go-to burger recipe and by far the BEST veggie burger recipe! The burgers go well with a variety of toppings and hold together very well, so they can be grilled. Try it with my homemade cashew mayo. 😊😋

"Oh you're vegan, so you don't eat gluten?" I've actually had people mistaken gluten-free for vegan. Not sure what vegans don't eat? Essentially all animal products.
Gluten is a protein found in some whole grains like wheat, barley, spelt, farro, etc. and is therefore vegan.
Removing all animal products may seem like a lot and leave you wondering what vegans do eat.

Dinnertime! Chili from yesterday on a yam? Sweet potato? It's obviously not the orange kind. Either way it's so good and filling!

Just some of the work that @consciousdripsociety and I put in. Branding is everything to us! We aim to keep it unique and personal because it represents you even when you’re not there. We love working with businesses that make our community better and inspire us.
Last full day in DC was stiflingly hot but we made some great memories:
🥑Breakfast at Emissary (Counter Culture coffee YUM and a filling meal complete with flower)
👣 Toured the holocaust museum
🚲 Biked around Tidal Basin and up to Arlington Cemetery
🌱Dinner at Founding Farmers (Impossible Burger was the meatiest tasting thing I’ve ever had that wasn’t actually meat... I’m highly impressed)
I’m so very thankful to have visited a vegan-friendly city :)

I love a good pasta dinner! This one is super filling and super delicious! •
The secret to a good marinara is allowing it time to simmer so all the flavors can marry together. I'm a big fan of making a large batch of marinara, allowing it to simmer on the stove for an hour or heat in the Crock-Pot for three, and packaging it in quart freezer bags to have frozen in the freezer. It makes it super convenient to just through a yummy pasta dish together!
The lentils gave this dish a nutty, almost cheesy taste that was BEYOND good. If I had it in the house, I would have add some nutritional yeast to really heighten that cheesy flavor but 🤷 •
#healthyrecipe details Begin making the marinara sauce by sautéing one small red onion and two minced cloves of garlic in olive oil. Once softened and fragrant, add 1 Tbsp of tomato paste. Add 1 can of tomato sauce and 1 can diced can of tomatoes. Add 1-2 cups vegetable broth to thin out. Season with plenty of black pepper. Bring to a simmer for at least 45 minutes. Add fresh basil and oregano and roasted red pepper flakes.
Rinse and roughly chop desired about of kale (I used about 4 cups, raw). Add to marinara to wilt down.
Rinse 3/4 cup lentils in a fine mesh strainer. Add to boiling water along with 2 cups of whole wheat penne pasta. Boil for 10-12 minutes until pasta is tender. Drain and add to pasta and kale. Toss well to ensure the pasta and lentils are well coated in sauce

Surprised myself with this amazing bbq pulled jackfruit! Yes, you read that right, it’s a fruit that tastes almost identical to bbq pulled pork! My hubby approves! 👏🏻 So darn yummy! Definitely making this meal again! 🤤

As delicious as this was, it was also a little sad because this means I have no more homegrown spaghetti squash to enjoy! 😢 -
This was really easy to make and despite having to roast the squash, didn’t take too long! I simply crumbled some @fieldroast Italian sausage, sautéed it in some oil and then dumped about a jar and a half of marinara sauce into the pot and let it all marinate together. I of course topped it all off with some cashew parm and red paper flakes! 🍝
I’m probably over sharing on social media today, but this deserves a post. Made something new for dinner today. Audriana ate the beans AND chickpea flour tortilla that I made. 🌮 if you’re gf you have to make these tortillas they are so simple.
SPICY CARROT AND QUINOA STEW
I’ve been surprised to see how many people have been enjoying the food prep info I put on my stories recently so thought I’d share some more recipes. Because I’ve now found my passion for medicine within Public Health I’ve had less time to update my blog/ website as I’ve been prioritising my study and other endeavors, however my passion for delicious plant-based food is still as strong as ever ❤️😍 I’ll move my content over to Instagram as for me it’s a fun platform and I don’t really have any specific need for a website at the moment 😊
Here’s an awesome recipe I stumbled across for a delicious carrot stew.
(Link in bio 👆🏽)
As per usual, you can alter the original recipe slightly: - to make it Plant Based you can simply leave out the feta and use maple syrup instead of honey 🌱 - to make it oil free use veggie stock to prevent things from sticking and roast the carrots without oil 🌱 - if you aren’t into spice tone down the chilli a little (I leave out half of it and chop it finely to sprinkle on top so those who like spice can add more) 🌱 - I usually double the recipe and freeze left overs. It’s a great one to make in advance for a busy schedule. 🌱 - to make it more environmentally friendly choose a locally-grown quinoa such as @kiwiquinoa 🌱 - don’t worry about getting Dutch carrots if you can’t find them- just use 2-3 usual carrots for the top (cheaper and easier to find) 🌱
Why do people see results on the Keto diet? -
For one, they are cutting out carboHYDRATES- their bodies become dehydrated, resulting in a loss of water weight. This does not mean they are getting healthier- not all weight loss is positive. -
Second - they reduce or eliminate consumption of processed foods, resulting in a decrease in weight as well as an improvement in metabolic markers (blood tests). They are no longer eating as much chemicals, GMOs, and man made ingredients that have been shown to cause hormonal imbalances, cancer, diabetes, gut dysbiosis, and metabolic dysfunction. -
However, this does not mean a Keto diet is healthy. A diet high in fat (as well as diets high in protein) is main cause of modern disease. The fat overburdens the liver and clogs the lymphatic system, resulting in a massive buildup of toxic waste — putting the body at dis-ease. -
Many promoters of the high fat, high protein lifestyle say that carbs make us fat and sick. If you actually look at the data, the consumption of whole food carbohydrates has been decreasing since the end of WW2, while the consumption of meats, dairy, eggs, fish, fast food, and processed food has been increasing. Not coincidentally, so has our rates of obesity, infertility, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, gut issues, thyroid complications, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, and more. -
When you continue to eat foods that clog your system, the system cannot keep itself clean. When the system cannot keep itself clean, it ceases to function properly. This is why we have seen such an increase in disease. -
Long story short - short term weight loss doesn’t always equal health. Just because it’s the latest trend doesn’t mean it’s the most nutritious one. Focus on fresh, whole living plants, and let your body clean and heal itself. #ketonutrition#ketogenicweightloss#diabetestype2#nutritionfacts#youarewhatyoueat#govegan
Wow, this book is actually starting to irritate me because of how manipulated and deceived we are as a population. How (most) doctors only treat sick people with prescriptions or surgeries and spend very little time actually studying nutrition. How there is so much evidence going back decades that tell us animal protein is correlated with a whole slew of preventable diseases and yet we still see the world pushing high-protein low-carb diets as a key to weight loss. (How is that working for us?) I’m not here to judge or force my views on anyone. It wasn’t long ago I was consuming nearly 200g of protein a day when my body only needs about 75g to BUILD muscle. I used to eat upwards of 6 eggs a day, yogurt or cottage cheese as dessert, slices of deli meat as a snack, all the while thinking I was fueling my body with the macronutrients it needed to support my weightlifting routine and provide me with overall health and longevity. I even cut out ALL grains and limited fruit consumption for a few months in 2017! In the year I’ve spent eating a plant-based diet and studying nutrition at the collegiate level, I can’t even begin to describe how wrong that all was. I won’t make anyone feel bad for their choices especially if you are just as misinformed as I was back then. Hell, I even still cook chicken for my husband (but he is cutting way back and likes when I feed him tofu too! The transition doesn’t have to be overnight.) So no, I’m not forcing veganism on anyone, and I won’t think less of you for not eating that way...But I can 100% guarantee you that if the education we received about nutrition came from actual science instead of bloggers (which I used to be!), journalists, and people trying to sell you supplements...we’d all be eating plant-based by now. I think it’s time we take our blinders off and seek the truth...because I want to live to see the day that meat starts being packaged with a warning label. #thefutureisvegan#wholefoodplantbased#plantbasedpreventionofdisease#proteinaholic#nutritionstudent#futuredietitian

It’s been over 100 degrees here for days now and my air conditioner is struggling to keep up! 😰
To stay cool I’ve been indulging in iced drinks like this gorgeous Rhubarb Rose Infusion! It’s seriously so good. The recipe is in At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen by @amychaplin
If you don’t have this James Beard award winning cookbook yet, I must recommend it highly. 🤗
What’s plant-based eating look like? This is my monthly(ish) reminder of the power plate (by @physicianscommittee )! A balance of whole and minimally processed fruits, whole grains, vegetables, and legumes. Plus nuts and seeds and a reliable source of B12 (we also include vitamin D and an algae based DHA/EPA). Your plate doesn’t have to look like this at every meal, but it’s a great guide for over the course of a day to get a general picture of plant-centered eating.🍽
Variety is also key. Ensuring within each food group to eat the foods you love while working to expand options by incorporating a diversity of foods and colors and flavors is key too to get a range of nutrients.🌈
Whole food plant-based eating also limits or leaves out highly processed foods (including super refined foods and oils) and excludes animal based foods of all kinds.☀️
Every time I share this, I can imagine someone on the other side of this post thinking “no way!” and feeling like it’s way too limiting. These really aren’t exclusions as much as they are opportunities to swap out foods that don’t serve us as well for beautiful, nutrient-rich, fiber-full, powerhouse plant-based foods. It’s not so much about excluding as opening up some space on your plate for more health promoting pretty and delicious plants. Yum! 🥰🌿🌟
