🥯 LUNCH 🥯 Proper addicted to bagels atm and so wanted to mix it up a bit for lunch with one side hummus and one side with the Waitrose vegan pesto and then some fried mushrooms on the side.. the pesto is so garlicky I love it 🙌 literally having bagels everyday atm 🥯
🐶DOG FAMILY🐶 If you have watched my stories in the last week you would have seen this little gal already but thought I would introduce her properly! My parents already had two black labradors and a jack Russel, and now have a new little puppy to join the team.. this is Madge! I’m living at home with my parent suntil August and so get to spend lots of time with this little one 🐶
🥯 FILLED BAGEL🥯 Bagels are my favourite carb to fill with all sorts of fillings and this creation did not disappoint.. avocado, tomato, pepper, vegan cheese, hummus, cucumber and sweet chilli sauce... couldn’t fit anymore in 😁
🌱TOFU SALAD🌱⠀ Love a really simple salad in the sunshine, not too filling but enough goodness to keep you full for the afternoon! At the moment my dad is growing so many different types of veg so loads of plates of salad and veggies to come!
🍔THE PRINCE🍔⠀ The prince in London is such a pretty venue with a huge outdoor bar and a few independent food outlets to get food for your bar table too! It’s covered in flowers and have loads of fresh cocktails from the bar which at two for one in happy hour! This burger was the ‘pamela’ from Jefferies (and a branch of Patty and Bun) and their vegan nuggets.. beyond delicious 🤤⠀ *⠀ This burger had SO many delicious elements, vegan bacon, cheese, the patty and a delicious sauce as well.. it was next level! If you’re in the area I definitely recommend a visit to the Prince as it’s perfect for date date or a night out with friends 🥂
🍝 HOLIDAY🍝⠀ Hellooooo I have been away for a week in Portugal and taken a little break from instagram but I am BACK! The vegan food scene in Portugal is lacking to say the least, and I survived mainly on pasta and tomato sauce.. and alcohol.... but this spaghetti dish had tofu in which was great to have some protein for a change 😂 hope you’ve all had a banging week and haven’t forgotten about me since I’ve been away, happy Sunday 🥳
🥗SUMMER SALAD🥗⠀ Sometimes when it’s summer all you need it a huge salad with allll the fresh veggies and topped with cut up @vivavivera burgers.. so fresh and delicious! The lettuce and radishes are also homegrown by my dad so were fresh out the garden 🌱
🌟JACKFRUIT&CHICKPEA CHILLI🌟⠀ This recipe is perfect for using up lots of tins in your cupboard all at once (not long until I move and trying to use up everything together has been a challenge). It’s super easy as well and I just left it simmering whilst I had a shower and that so the longer you leave it to gently bubble the better! ⠀ 💫⠀ I’ve served it here with some salad and some homemade cornbread I made and froze ages ago using @delciousl recipe, the only thing is I don’t have a microwave to defrost it properly and putting it in the oven caused it to crumble apart.. still tasty though! ⠀ 💫⠀ Swipe for the recipe (I made it up as I went along so tried to remember what went into it! ) ➡️ [i have just noticed the recipe has been cut off so you can’t see half of it oops 😂]
💯ONE HUNDREDTH POST💯 ⠀ Can’t believe this is my 100th post on this Instagram account! These three months of documenting my vegan adventures have been so much fun 🙌 I have really enjoyed having a platform that’s all about celebrating veganism and the best vegan food and lead me to find some awesome accounts that fill me with vegan inspiration! 🌱💕⠀ Here’s a picture of me being happy and enjoying the summer weather, hope you’re all having a fabulous week 💖
🍪COOKIES🍪⠀ Cookies are my favourite to bake as they’re so quick, usually only require one bowl, and can be baked in less than 20 minutes.. what’s not to love?⠀ 💫⠀ I used the oreo stuffed recipe from the baking fairy here https://www.thebakingfairy.net/2017/08/vegan-oreo-stuffed-chocolate-chip-cookies/ but I didn’t have oreos so just baked them without the Oreo centre (which sounds like it would be delicious and I will do next time😍)⠀ 💫⠀ As I mentioned in my previous post I am in the process of moving out so trying to use up my baking ingredients in my cupboard too.. there’s a lot in there 🤪
🥬🥔80/20🥔🥬⠀ I am currently in the process of moving out of my flat and so using up everything in the freezer, which is making for a lot of weird meals recently... and peas with every dinner 🤪⠀ 💫⠀ I love meals like this as I know I’m getting all the goodness from my veggies but also having some potato smilies with it because I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a potato smiley? I always try to build a meal starting with veggies and then add in carbs and protein from there, but don’t feel guilty when I have ‘’treat’’ food... all about that 80/20 balance! You don’t have to cut out the food you enjoy to be ‘’healthy’’, just make sure to have some nutritionally dense food too to get all those vitamins and nutrients in alongside those foods 🥬🍔🍅🍕🍎🥗🎂
◾️▫️MEAL PREP▫️◾️⠀ This is an ugly as photo but this is what 90% of my lunches look like at work.... a mixture of veg with either some type of bean or tofu. I love to mix up the spices to keep it different but always end up making a similar ish sort of thing each week⠀ ◾️⠀ I find meal prep great for saving time, and most vegan options at my workplace are either pasta, chips or something no veggies in.. so prefer to bring my own in to make sure I’m getting all the good stuff and it works out cheaper too ⠀ ◾️⠀ What’s your favourite meal prep?
🍌SNACKS🍌⠀ Any snack involving peanut banana I am here for... love this for either breakfast or a pre-workout snack 🙌 rice cakes are so versatile as you can make them sweet or savoury.. what’s your favourite rice cake topping?
🥝FRUITY PORRIDGE🥝⠀ Love when it’s sunny enough to eat meals outdoors, especially fruity breakfasts like these 💫 the sunshine just makes everything better, hope the English summer is as good as last year ☀️
🍌OATS🍌⠀ Wasn’t feeling too good over the weekend so wanted to treat myself to this super sweet porridge with blueberries, banana, whites chocolate and lotus spread drizzle.. was a bit too sweet but definitely made me feel a bit better 😋
🌸ORGANIC BASICS🌸⠀ Here’s the sports bra and mug I was gifted by organic basics and I love them both! @organicbasics is all about ethical business practices and eco friendly manufacturing.. and such good quality their products are made to last 💫⠀ This is their organic basics mug and the SilverTech Active Sports Bra 💖
🍚BREAKFAST🍚⠀ Haven’t had porridge for a while as been craving fruit and smoothies for breakfast recently, so got back on the porridge hype this morning after a heavy lower body day at the gym... added protein powder, banana and @sweetfreedomuk choc sauce ⠀ 💫⠀ What’s your fave go to breakfast at the moment?
💭ORGANIC BASICS💭⠀ The comfort of this sports bra is next level, I have literally been living in it since it arrived! The material is so soft and stretchy, so different to some other sports bras that can dig in and be uncomfortable.. it’s perfect for heavy weight days when you’re not doing high intensity cardio or for casual wear when you just want something comfier than a bra ⠀ 💫⠀ @organicbasics is a company that believes in making sustainable fashion that is ethically made and made to last.. which I think is so important in today’s society when we know the detriments of fast fashion..They ensure all their factories work to minimise their carbon footprint as well as ensuring all their workforce is treated fairly and ethically. ⠀ 💫 ⠀ This was gifted to me by organic basics but opinions are my own💕
