I tend to go through phases for homemade milk. I’ll make some plain homemade almond milk for a couple weeks, and then go back to the convenience of buying the store-bought stuff. Although the homemade milk if a thousand times better, it does take a bit of time and planning (not that much, but still), and it doesn’t stay fresh for long. What I do
Every time I make kale chips, I think that I don’t make them often enough; it is so easy to make, and such a great snack! I usually make more of a cheesy flavour, but wanted to experiment with some other flavours. I first made these amazing thai ginger kale chips from Meghan Telper, which are a bit sweet, and have a delicious ginger flavor
Who says you can’t have cheese as a vegan? You can definitely have delicious cheese! I tried some of the regular processed vegan cheeses available in most grocery stores and I have to say I am not a fan of most. Although I do have phases (lazy phases) when I’ll buy some to make grilled-cheeses, the ingredients alone make it a no-go as a staple.
I love cranberry juice. While the extra tart flavour of cranberries is usually toned down by either sugar or sweet fruit juice, here beets have that function, yielding a hearty and not-too-sweet flavour (and beautiful color). There is even some greens hidden in there, and parsley to detoxify after some holiday partying!
With the colder fall weather, smoothies are not my breakfast staple anymore (hello, yummy oatmeal!). However, when I work out in the morning, I still favour a smoothie since it is the only thing that is quick enough and that doesn’t weight me down if I work out half an hour after drinking it (not eating anything before working out is definitely not an option for me).
