healthy vegan friday # 8!

Happy Friday my plant-based friends! I’m really excited about Healthy Vegan Friday this week. This week has been crazy busy for me (in a good way!) but I can’t wait to slow down and take a look at all the plant-based treats you guys have in store for us this week!


For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a new weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Shelby @ Everyday Vegan Girl and Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan. It is a place to share your healthy vegan recipes that make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods. The recipes shared on this link up are intended to emphasis the beauty, creativity and benefits of a healthy, plant-based diet!

Last week was another awesome party, thanks so much guys! Here’s the recap:

  1. Love your taco wrap Gabby! Ive been enjoying raw taco salads lately. So delish and flavorful.
    This week Im sharing the raw veggie burgers and coconut lucuma chocolate swirl cheesecake mousse. Have a great weekend !

  2. Yay, Happy Healthy Vegan Friday! :) All of these submissions look great, no wonder they were most popular and chosen to be featured! Your raw taco looks so perfect!! I’ve been wanting to get back to eating more raw food but my Dr. told me not to change my current diet until I get through some testing. Wah! I’ll just have to bookmark these beauties for later!

    I definitely am going to submit at some point this weekend, just need to settle down from a rough week. I’m hoping to make a nice comforting bowl of soup to share tomorrow!

    Can’t wait to go through all of these recipes! And thanks for hosting :)

  3. Wow, I’m so flattered that I had another popular entry to Healthy Vegan Fridays. I’ve posted an official invitation to start the challenge now, but I’ll share that next week. This week I’ve shared your favourite gingerbread smoothie and a post on adding quinoa to smoothies. Quinoa is another great healthy carb which will help you make a meal out of your smoothies.
    That raw taco looks great. I also love the idea of quinoa flatbread!

    Thanks so much for hosting.

  4. Hey Gabby! I feel you’re pain…it’s been one crazy busy week for me too! Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend. Thanks again for sharing my “Milk Project” post, it’s nice to find an audience who appreciates a post like that, most people would just say, “It’s easy, just drink cow’s milk!” But we all know better right?! ( :

    This week I’m sharing a recipe for “Tofu Mushroom Stroganoff” a favorite meal in our house!

    Thanks again for hosting!

    • Your review of all the milks was awesome and so helpful- I’m sure lot’s of people who are starting out with plant-milks will mfind it super helpful! And yes, I would rather drink any plant based  milk, even some of the not-so-tasty ones that drink cow’s milk!

      Looks so delicious Ashley! I love a good stroganoff recipe :)

      Have a great weekend yourself!
