I Already Know What You’re Thinking, French Toast Without Eggs?!
Let me start off by saying that when I decided to go vegan french toast HAD to be something I learned to master. The first couple of times, it didn’t go so well (can’t trust all recipes). But with some practice I was able to come up with a recipe I truly love!
Growing up I had a MAJOR sweet tooth. Cake, cupcakes, cookies, ice cream, brownies, you name it. There wasn’t much I really didn’t like, as long as it had sugar, I was happy. However, over the years, as I’ve learned how to kick my sugar addiction, I’ve become way more picky about what kind of sweets I’ll eat. I guess you can say I’ve become a dessert snob LOL. I’m looking for the perfect balance between sweet, but not too sweet, flavorful, and moist. And let me just say I’ve made MANY vegan desserts, but I find these cinnamon rolls to be the perfect combination of all those things. These cinnamon rolls are perfectly sweet, ooey gooey, and just melt in your mouth. And on top of that, they are 100% vegan.
What makes these rolls even better, is the nostalgia it brings from my childhood. I remember being young, walking through the mall with my mom after a long day of shopping and ALWAYS stopping to get Cinnabon. It’s a memory that always reminds me that small moments, often times mean the most. So for me, these cinnamon rolls not only reflect good dessert, but also sweet memories. So in the midst of discipline, work, school, exercise, and eating healthy, always remember to enjoy the small moments and treat yo’self honey! Enjoy!
Never Been the Salad Type
Let me be 100% honest with you guys, I really don’t like salads. Before I was vegan I never really ate salads, unless it was at a restaurant where you get a salad before your entrée. So ya know, iceberg lettuce, maybe some diced tomatoes & cucumbers, and if you’re lucky some non-stale croutons. That was all I knew when it came to the world of salads. So when I became vegan I was really insistent on NEVER eating salads. They can be so bland, fattening (when you add cheese & ranch dressing), and leaving you even more hungry than before.
So when I started to experiment with salads I was DEDICATED on making a salad that was packed with flavor & nutrition, while also leaving you very full. This Kale + Quinoa salad embodies just that! It’s spicy, sweet, savory, and just down right delicious. I cook this salad religiously, and truly believe I could eat this everyday and be completely content with life.
