Not only is today Healthy Vegan Friday, it’s also Jessica’s birthday, which means I will be making some super yummy healthy vegan birthday treats later today! And not only is it Jessica’s birthday, but it’s also contest giveaway day! My thoughtful Healthy Vegan Fridays co-host Kimmy has set up a giveaway for this week! If you’re new to Healthy Vegan Fridays, read all about it here.
Who wants to see the winners from last week??? (I do.)
winner #1: Noodles with Green Sauce from Vegans Eat Yummy Food Too!
This looks like a good St Patricks Day meal idea.
winner #2: Chocolate-covered Cherry Macaroons from Creating Silver Linings
I like american macaroons and all, but who wants to teach me how to make vegan french macarons?!
winner #3: Nut Free Vegan Mac n’ Cheeze from Strength & Sunshine
This recipe is kind of brilliant! I can’t wait to try it. I missed farmer’s market last weekend to go to the jPop Summit, so I’m a little bit low on produce this week, but I will for sure get the ingredients for this on Sunday.
The recipe I’ll be submitting this week was something I invented for Vanessa’s birthday (birthdays, birthdays, everywhere). These Snickers Cupcakes kind of teeter on the line of being healthy. I’m calling them healthy, because they’re gluten-free, they have wayyyyy less sugar than most of my sweets, and they have a ton of protein (peanuts, peanut butter, chickpea flour, fava bean flour, etc).
So, who wants to know more about this contest we’re having??? Next Friday, in addition to announcing the most popular HVF posts of the week, we will also be giving away an e-cookbook! The name of the cookbook is “Delicious, Nutrition, Easy” and it’s written by Andrea Frenke. To enter the contest, all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post that says why you want the book. The contest closes Tuesday night, and we’ll be announcing the winner on Friday’s Healthy Vegan Friday’s blog post.
I can’t wait to see what healthy vegan recipes you all have. 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.
