Good morning and happy Friday to you. This has been a busy week. My spring semester is drawing to a close, although it doesn’t feel very significant to me because I’m starting my summer session on Monday.
Healthy Vegan Fridays:
As you probably know already, each Friday I co-host a recipe exchange called Healthy Vegan Fridays, where bloggers can submit their healthy, plant-based recipe. You can see the guidelines here, but the “winners” each week are based on the number of clicks for each recipe.
Here are the top picks for this round:
1. My Top 10 Tips for Eating Healthy from Chastity @ My Healthy Chef:
2. Superfood Cups from Heather @ Sweetly Raw:
3. Enlightened Carrot Cake from Amber @ Chef Amber Shea:
The top 3 you picked are fabulous, and here are some of my personal favorites (note: to be included as one of my picks, the recipes must be made using using little to no oil, salt, or added sugars and primarily with whole food ingredients):
1. Most Inspiring Healthy Salad – Kale Waldorf Salad from Purely Nourished:
2. Easiest Healthy Soup Using Basic Ingredients – Sweetcorn, Pea & Tofu Soup from Almost Skinny Vegan Food:
3. Easiest Healthy Dessert & Beautiful Presentation – Easy Banana Nut Ice Cream from The Jensen Journal:
Honorable Mention for Nutritarian-Friendly Comfort Food – Kale, Mac N Sweet Potato Cheese from Amy’s Nutritarian Kitchen:
Honorable Mention for a Beautiful & Easy Salad: Asparagus, Strawberry and Basil Salad with Mosto Cotto from The Taste Space:
I LOVE getting inspiration each week from the amazing recipes that are submitted to Healthy Vegan Fridays. If you want to puruse the entire list of entries, just go to the thumbnails featured below this post on my website. To see a list of all the Healthy Vegan Friday posts featuring recipes, click here.
Healthy Taste of Los Angeles:
Calendar alert! If you are anywhere around the Los Angeles area, I wanted to let you know about a great event happening on June 23rd. It’s called The Healthy Taste of Los Angeles and it’s a 100% plant-based all-day event (see the website here) with amazing speakers and food. Chef AJ is the organizer and I was lucky enough to attend similar events in March and April to hear Drs. Michael Greger and Matt Lederman speak about the benefits of healthy, vegan living (you can read about my experiences at the previous events here and here). I hope you can join me at this fabulous event in June!
I’ve been playing around a lot more on Pinterest lately. Are you a fan? See all my boards here, including the ones I’ve created for Healthy Vegan Food, Fruits and Veggies are Beautiful!, and Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live Food. I even have one for Vegan Delish, my app for healthy recipes that is available for download here.
With that, have a happy, healthy weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday.
