healthy vegan friday #32

Hello all you lovely people!

I’m so sorry I didn’t post a new recipe this week. Between my mom visiting, school work and the fact that I haven’t been feeling well didn't leave too much time for blogging. BUT I have lots of delicious recipes coming your way, so don’t give up on me yet! I will post one very soon.

In the meantime though, let’s enjoy ourselves another Healthy Vegan Friday!

We had 65 submissions last week, holy awesome Batman! You guys are seriously the best! In case you haven’t seen the post or all the awesome submissions, head on over to check it out!

For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan and Katherine @ Green Thickies. 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

Banoffee Pie

Banoffee Pie from Erin @ Sift, Stir & Savour

This recipe jumped out at me right from the beginning. I have always wanted to try banoffee pie after being introduced to it by friends in Ireland, but never did since vegan options were non-existent. I definitely have to try this one!

Vegan Quinoa Sushi from Devin @ Nom Yum & Free

While sushi you get in restaurants may seem like a healthy option, it’s usually white rice and has refined sugar and tons of processed ingredients and preservatives. This recipe for homemade sushi uses quinoa giving it a protein boost and other wholesome ingredients!

Nutella, Banana and Brownie Parfait from Rachel @ Almonds & Avocados

In her post, Rachel talks about eating the whole thing herself and I can’t blame her! What is it about the combination of chocolate and hazelnut that is soooo heavenly?

My Top Picks

Favourite Main Event: Santa Fe Spaghetti Squash from Kimmy @ Rock My Vegan Socks

I love spaghetti squash but it can get monotonous always using it as a “pasta” substitute. Thanks for reminding me it’s delicious in it’s own right Kimmy!

Pear & Parsley Smoothie

Favourite Nourishing Sipper: Pear and Parsley Smoothie from Anne @ An Unrefined Vegan

I’m so excited to have Anne join this blog party and just had to highlight this beautiful smoothie! I love the idea of adding parsley to save us from getting bored of our typical green smoothies and it is so pretty to boot!

Raw Vegan Strawberry Fudge Cups

Favourite Sinful but Healthful Indulgence: Raw Strawberry Fudge Cups from Heather @ Gluten-Free Cat

This looks so decadent and delicious and even uses leftover almond pulp from making almond milk. Score!

Now for Healthy Vegan Friday #32!

My Submission for the Week:

Banana, Walnut and Date Oatmeal Parfait

Toronto has been hit with some bad weather this past week which has me looking forward to spring and spring always means chilled oat parfaits for me! I love the combo of bananas, walnuts and dates and the banana “soft serve” makes it feel like dessert for breakfast! I think I’ll have to make one of these in spite of the weather!
