Vegan Snack Bars Review

Originally posted on Charm of Love:
Hi everyone, I have a bit of a later start today, but I also finish later. After today I’ll only have three days until my holiday 🙂 Today I have a review of snack bars for you, I have been able to try a few Nakd bars but this post contains three different brands. The first bar I tried was The Primal Pantry’s macadamia and coconut paleo bar, I’m not fussed on trying a paleo diet but this bar is vegan and sounded tasty so I bought it. These bars are gluten free, grain free, and also free from refined sugar, GMOs, soya, vegetable oil and sulphites. Much like the Nakd bars it’s full of simple ingredients and is raw, it has a lighter colour than most other bars that I’ve seen. Unlike some coconut products that I’ve tried recently the coconut was not soapy, it was just creamy and delicious and the strips of coconut added another texture to the bar. The overall taste was sweet and nutty…

recovering from an ED || a beautiful journey of various volumes

? “recovery is not a destination where one day you will wake up and feel fixed but rather it’s a slow mending process that follows an imperfect line where progress is made over time. along the way your eating disorder will make it’s presence known as it fluctuates between being very quiet or very loud. use this as reassurance that you are healing by the mere fact that you are aware of the sounds it makes and in charge of the volume. “ ? finding this quote from Tina Klaus of Don’t Live Small?was a sign from the universe, i swear. i have read it multiple times knowing how much i must?remember that my eating disorder may flare+ fluctuate, but i remain in charge of the internal volume. i remain in recovery. so i’m being a bit more candid in this post, less about tasty healthy treats?+ more about what i have experienced as well as continue to live with. i’m curious who else had a difficult time…

Tofurky hickory smoke flavour turkey style slices

Afternoon everybody, Here’s another review for you, this time it’s the Tofurky hickory smoke flavour turkey style slices. I had seen a lot of talk about this American brand online and needed something for a sandwich so when I saw this product in Holland & Barrett I had to try it. These were £2.85 for a 156g pack but I used my rewards for life voucher to get money off this price. I tried a few sandwich variations with the slices, plain with olive spread, with pate and cucumber, and with pate and spreadable Violife. I noticed that the slices were quite thin and as I tried to rip a bit off to try a bit I also noticed that the slices are a little difficult to tear. This difficulty remained when I wanted to take a bite out of the sandwich. Now this wasn’t much of an issue with me, I could still happily eat my sandwiches but if you are like me and get a bit nervous eating…

vegan fall cookies || cranberry almond chocolate chip oatmeal cookies

i totally had these vegan cookies for lunch. no shame. paired with a glass of cold almond milk these fresh from the oven cookies were packed with flavor, were chewy, delicious, + pretty healthy, too. they reminded me of cranberry chocolate chip oatmeal cookies i used to eat in connecticut at my family’s bakery. here’s the recipe- it’s a MUST try. i’m pretty proud of myself for putting it together using healthy ingredients such as cranberry, almond, oatmeal, pepitas, + spices. i used whole wheat flour rather than all purpose + coconut sugar rather than white refined sugars. they are also easily adapted to gluten free by swapping the oats + flour to gluten free varieties. //autumn inspired vegan oatmeal cookies// 1 cup organic rolled oats – used bob’s red mill 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1/3 cup coconut sugar 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1/3 cup pure maple syrup 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 tsp vanilla extract (also can substitute almond to bring out a more almond flavor) 1…

Note: I recommend either using parchment paper, muffin liners, or greasing with some coconut oil if you don’t want muffin sticking to your pan! Bake at 400 Fahrenheit for about 24 minutes (Note~ times vary depending on ovens) Makes about 6 muffins. Enjoy! May Nothing Stop You, xox // Julia

Healthy Vegan Carrot Falafel Recipe.

Originally posted on Heart of a Traveller:
I have fallen in love with falafel ever since turning vegan, mainly because it acts as such a good meat substitute in so many dishes (particularly in sandwiches and when paired with couscous). However, I was never good at making them myself, until my mom made these carrot falafel’s a few weeks ago. I instantly fell in love and made her give me the recipe. I have made them many times since, and I can’t get enough. They are simple, healthy (as they’re oven baked, not fried), and most importantly, delicious! So without further ado here is my (well, my mom’s) carrot falafel recipe: Ingredients (for around 15 falafel pieces): -1 can of chickpeas (drained and rinsed) -2 carrots (grated) -2 tbsp olive oil -Seasoning (this part is up to you, but my favourite combo is: garlic salt, garlic pepper, garlic powder, curry powder, chilli powder, and ground cumin). Instructions: Turn your oven to 220 degrees Celsius. After having drained and rinsed your chickpeas, mash them with a…
