Happy Day Off of Work!!! What better way to celebrate sleeping in on a Friday, than co-hosting Healthy Vegan Fridays with the fabulous Kimmy. If you’re not yet an expert on what this means, read all about it here.
If you’re already an expert, then you probably know that you can link back to Healthy Vegan Fridays by using a badge instead of the usual method of just providing a text link. I happen to be fond of scalloped edges, so if you are too, you might like this new badge!
This has been an especially unhealthy week for me. It’s interesting how reliant we are on our kitchens and the tools that live there. With everything I own in boxes, I think I ate takeout for almost every meal last week. Don’t get me wrong…I love me some Veggie Grill, but I was actually getting tired of it (Who the hell am I???). I was so excited to finally unpack enough kitchen items to cook dinner. And dessert. I may or may not have made dessert first.
All of the recipes submitted to Healthy Vegan Fridays last week looked amazing! The three recipes that the internet loved the most are the following.
winner #1: Death By Chocolate Almond Butter Ice Cream Wafer Sandwiches from Detached & Connected
How is she so perfectly amazing? I love everything she makes!!! How did she find the time to make such adorable treats? (Maybe she wasn’t moving to a new house this week.)
winner #2: Birthday Cake Flavored Balls from Gigi Eats Celebrities
Ummmm…I’ll leave the commentary on this one to Beavis and Butthead and Eric Cartman from South Park.
winner #3: Chocolate Mint Chip Ice Cream from The Taste Space
I really like how she used something natural to make the ice cream that mint color that we’ve grown accustomed to seeing. My mint chip ice cream looks the same as vanilla chip, so I kind of want to try this next time.
The first thing I made in my new kitchen was a Nutella pie. As far as desserts go, I consider it healthy since the hazelnut butter and the tofu added a lot of protein, the sweetener I used was coconut sugar and agave, and all the ingredients were organic. Last night, I made tuna casserole that was sooooo delicious!!! Tonight, I made chicken pesto sandwiches, which were also delicious, but none of this was cute enough to be blogworthy, so I’ll instead show you a picture of my Nutella pie (which I luckily shared with David, Zen, Isabelle, Ashley, and Matt or I would have eaten the entire thing myself!)
I hope you have a healthy vegan recipe to share to make up for the fact that I don’t! Please use the link below to submit one. And if you have a twitter or instagram account, post a picture of your yummy healthy vegan friday food and tag it with the hashtag #veganfridays.
