oh boy this has been an intense week! getting back into school and work and all those other responsibilities has left little time for anything else. they sure didn’t give us time to ease back in!
i’m hoping all of this settles down a little bit soon though. i’ve been making a few difficult decisions recently, one of them being going down to part time at school in the next couple weeks. downside: i won’t be a holistic nutritionist as soon, but the upside is i’ll have more time for working towards getting healthy and doing the things i love like blogging!
for now though, i just have to keep breathing and take pleasure in the little things. and healthy vegan friday is always one of those, so let’s get right to it!
for those of you who don’t know, healthy vegan fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself 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!
recap of last week:
most popular submissions
spanish chickpeas and spinach with roasted garlic from janet @ the taste space
a delicious, warming chickpea salad that looks so flavourful!
caramel apple trifle from heather @ sweetly raw
creamy apple pudding, caramel and pecans- i don’t know how anything could sound more divine! amazing seasonal treat!
raw cinnamon roll bites from vicki @ sweet & healthy living
cinnamon rolls without needing to wait for the dough to rise or bake? sounds amazing to me!
my favourites from last week
favourite way to start the day: acorn squash winter oats from nikki @ eat to the beet
i love the idea of mixing in corn squash to oats- it’s my favourite squash!
favourite delicious yet sensible snack: sweet onion kale chips from leslie @ flora foodie
these sound reminiscent of sour cream and onion chips which use to be my favourite!
favourite main event: vegan swiss chard quiche with oat-sesame crust from emily @ triumph wellness
the flavours sound amazing and look how well it holds together! something i’ve always had a problem with in my vegan quiches…
before we get into this week’s healthy vegan friday, carrie and i have an announcement to make!
The search is open for a co-host for Healthy Vegan Fridays, the recipe link-up party! One of the founders of the party, Shelby, is pursuing new opportunities (we will miss her!), but that opens up a spot to join Carrie and I as a co-host. We love that so many bloggers participate each week and we're excited to take it to the next level. This is a great opportunity to get exposure for your blog and develop your marketing skills. Requirements include a commitment to writing whole food vegan recipes, posting the link-up code on your blog every Friday and helping us spread the word through social networking. The time commitment is between 1-2 hours a week. If you are interested, please fill out the short survey by following the link below. We will begin reviewing applications on Monday, January 21st. Good luck and thank you for your interest!
now it’s time for healthy vegan friday # 25!
my submission for the week:
easy, raw and so quick to make, these make a great o!-the-go snack packed with healthy fats and protein and help satisfy a sweet craving naturally!
so, if you have a healthy vegan recipe (or 2) to share, please add it to the list below! if not, feel free to browse the submissions and get inspired! you can also check out our pinterest board and feel free to tweet about it using the hashtag #VeganFridays. feel free to grab our button (code is on the sidebar) to help promote this even and show your vegan pride.
you don’t have to be vegan to submit, just needs to be a vegan recipe. so share that creativity of yours!
thanks and happy friday!
