I am largely inspired by other vegan food bloggers and YouTubers, and love to try out recipes that aren’t my own. A couple months ago a Snapchat follower of mine reached out to me and asked if we could do a recipe swap. Since I love trying out new recipes and am always eager to find new vegan blogs—I was happy to check out her site LoveWildLiveFree.com.
LoveWildLiveFree is a great source for healthful recipes with vibrant ingredients. All of Avra’s recipes are organic, non-GMO, vegan, soy-free, refined sugar free, gluten free and all natural. On her blog you will also find simple green living resources for everything in your daily life from beauty and fashion to nutrition and health & wellness. Below I have a listed my 5 favourite healthy recipes from her blog, that I think you will also enjoy.
Make sure you check out her blog for more plant-based goodness.
This is a quick and nutritious recipe easily thrown together for dinner, and perfect for leftover lunches in under 15 minutes. Use it as a side, or enjoy it as a main with quinoa or a side salad.
Oatmeal is a quick and simple, inexpensive, plant-based option for an energy boosting breakfast. This classic combination of apples and cinnamon is a delicious and comforting winter breakfast reminiscent of apple pie. This recipe is loaded with super foods including coconut oil and chia, as well as perfectly caramelized apples–providing sweetness without any added sugar.
As everyone knows, I am obsessed with freshly squeezed fruit and veggie juices. This blog post/recipe shows you exactly how to juice a pomegranate in order to get the best tasting juice, that also provides your whole body with these healing, antioxidant healthful benefits.
I love to make my own vegan milks. I often forget about hemp milk, until I came across this delicious recipe. This hemp milk recipe has a nice, subtle nutty flavour. Use it in your cereal, smoothie or drink it on it’s own. Hemp hearts contain 24g of protein in every 1/2 cup, making this milk a great option for those worried about not getting enough protein in a vegan diet.
This recipe includes a healing combination of lightly spiced onions, garlic, mushrooms, kale and paprika. It is a simple but satisfying dish that is ready in under 15 minutes, making it perfect for a quick after work dinner. Any recipe including mushrooms is a winner in by books!
