Here’s the thing — vegan processed foods are faster and easier than cooking from scratch. You take it out of the carton or plastic, you pop whatever it is into the microwave, you heat it up, and you have a meal. It takes, what? Five minutes?

Simple, right?

Not so fast.

The debate concerning vegan processed foods and cooking is gaining momentum, so let’s talk about it. It’s important to realize that there are plenty of benefits of preparing vegan food that you don’t get from processed foods.

Vegan Vietnamese Salad

Vegan Vietnamese Salad

Besides curries and quick stir fries, I don’t venture out into Asian cooking much. I’m not sure why. It intimidates me a little as many recipes have quite a few ingredients and it’s reasonably foreign to me. But this vegan vietnamese salad was the wonderful creation of my sister. The sister that did all the amazing catering for our wedding. Yes she is an awesome cook and yes I will be using her to make some recipes for us all that are meals she whips up on a regular basis. Everything is super easy to her. She’s very talented and I wanted to share that with you! / Read More »

This is my ritual for the morning.

Before I go to sleep, I write down three things I’m grateful for in my journal, close the curtains, drink a bit of warm water with lemon, kiss my husband and cat goodnight, and meditate for 20 minutes before dozing off.

This is my ritual for the evening. / Read More »

Rose and Chocolate Raw Slice

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a dessert with you all! It’s also been a while since I posted a recipe.

I went with the slice and the complimentary chocolate to sweeten everyones taste buds.  The chocolates I’ll make will be either coconut or peppermint centred. If you have any preference in which flavour you’d prefer, please let me know in the comments below! / Read More »
