Banana Bread Protein Balls

For the Vegan MoFo prompt today, I made a simple and nourishing recipe that I use quite often at home.  I find that protein is something I don't eat much of, especially with my regular meals.  I'm a bit of a carboholic and my intake is somewhere around 170 grams a day (sometimes more!).  These… Continue reading Banana Bread Protein Balls

Tempeh Beet Burgers

For the "...but protein" prompt today, I made some burgers.  There's nothing quite as anti-vegan as ground up meat so I've made my beloved tempeh burger with some beet in it to make it look a little more "convincing" to someone who might be skeptical of vegan burgers.  I've had the pleasure of trying the… Continue reading Tempeh Beet Burgers

Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Do you even protein, bro?      So today's prompt is asking how I get my protein.  I would imagine my question to this ever present question from non-vegans would be to show them a bit of a double whamey: a protein-packed breakfast. It's very difficult to come by vegan breakfast foods that are prepared… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Vegan MoFo: Sprouted Spiced Black Bean Nachos

     I know, I know...today is supposed to be "junk food forever" themed.  Nachos are a classic party food that can be as junky as you want.  Having nachos drowned in dairy cheese, sour cream and other fattening ingredients is junk, for sure.  I decided to take today's prompt and "de-junk" nachos so that… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Sprouted Spiced Black Bean Nachos

Vegan MoFo Day 1: Herbed Mushroom & Tempeh Veggie Burger

Happy Vegan MoFo, everyone!  I'm proud to say that I'm participating again this year.  I hope to contribute some solid recipes while following the prompts (somewhat, due to scheduling and general interest).  I couldn't, however, ignore the first day!  I love this idea: re-inventing a standard vegetarian option.  All too often, as many vegans know,… Continue reading Vegan MoFo Day 1: Herbed Mushroom & Tempeh Veggie Burger

Japanese Curry Tempeh Tacos

I'm. Finally. Back! I apologize for my absence these past few months, but I've been very preoccupied with moving!  The process was not as extensive as I expected, although it still took me over a month to finally get everything from point A to point B.  Luckily, I'm just about settled. Not being able to… Continue reading Japanese Curry Tempeh Tacos

MoFo Day 29: Homemade Macro Bars

What would I take on a vegan road trip? ​Easy. Macro Bars!      Macro Bars are my absolute favorite of all vegan packaged energy bars.  Believe me.  I've tried almost all of them.  I've also had my phase with some of the best quality ones out there for the price.  A little more than… Continue reading MoFo Day 29: Homemade Macro Bars
