Lunch Idea: Plant-based ”Tuna” Sandwiches by @vanelja 💜 Recipe:
Makes about 4 stuffed toasts⠀
1 can (about 300 g / 10.5 oz) chickpeas⠀
4 tbsp Plant-based mayo or natural spread⠀
¼ cup pickles, cut to small pieces⠀
1 small red onion⠀
2 tbsp yellow mustard⠀
2 tsp juice from a lemon⠀
1 tsp maple syrup⠀
¼ tsp sea salt⠀
small handful dill⠀
For the toasts:⠀
Multi-grain gluten-free toasts⠀
Plant-based mayo or natural spread⠀
edible flowers, such as dill flowers, oregano flowers, chives flowers or violets⠀
First, prepare the mixture. Smash the chickpeas in a bowl so that you leave some whole chickpeas in the mixture. Stir in the rest of the filling ingredients (Add first a little bit of mustard and then add more, if needed). Taste and add some of the spices, if you like.⠀
Spread plenty of filling onto a toast. Add sprouts generously. Top with avocado slices and dill. Spread some mayo onto another toast and place it on top. Slip in some edible flowers and also on top of the toast. Serve. Enjoy! #veganfoodspace#veganlunch#lunchideas

Mocha protein vegan shake 🍫☕️
This has been my go-to post-workout pretty much everyday! Simply blended frozen bananas with cacao powder, @rawsportofficial toffee protein powder (use petite10 for 10% off), ice cubes and plant milk 👌🏼
Topped with cacao nibs and drank through a re-usable bamboo straw from @wearesuperu ❤️

Among the latest to join #TeamVegan is none other than R&B singer/songwriter, Ne-Yo.The Grammy Award-winning entertainer shared that a tendinitis diagnosis led him to make a drastic change in his eating habits.
But changing his diet wasn't exactly easy. Given his southern upbringing, Ne-Yo admitted that cutting out pork, specifically, wasn't something he'd imagined.
After a little coaxing from a friend who reassured him that a plant-based diet would reverse the effects of tendinitis, he knew he needed to make the change. Within 2 weeks of going vegan, his tendinitis had cleared up completely, in addition to other improvements, like clearer skin and weight loss.

⏩ DO YOU EAT MORE RAW, COOKED OR STEAMED FOODS❔⏪⏩ COMMENT BELOW❕
💡 👉 'There is evidence that raw food diets may be inadequate in many dietary aspects. In one study, vitamin B-carotene levels were higher in subjects who ate seven servings a day of both raw and cooked vegetables, as opposed to 14 servings a day of purely raw vegetables. There are a few instances where plant enzymes affect us physiologically, such as the formation of sulforaphane in broccoli. In these instances it may be beneficial to eat the broccoli raw or to chop it before cooking, since the enzyme is inactivated by cooking. Different cooking methods also affect the nutrient profile of foods. Steamed and microwaved foods can actually be more nutritious than their raw counterparts, particularly in regards to their bile-acid binding ability. On the other hand, boiling and pressure cooking causes nutrients to become lost in the cooking water. There are exceptions, however, since boiled kale was found to have higher immunostimulatory effects than raw kale. Carrots and celery become more nutritious when cooked apparently no matter what method you use. Artichokes, beets, onions and asparagus retain their nutrients in any cooking method as well. It appears the only vegetable that is always best to eat raw is bell peppers. ' *source:
👉 BOTTOM LINE: There are a lot of people who follow the completely raw or rawtill4 lifestyle and I don't want to discourage this people in doing so... BUT scientifically speaking it is not the healthiest choice for above mentioned reasons ! A MIX of raw, cooked or steamed foods is the healthiest CHOICE in my opinion ! 💪🌱

Today I start the last unit of my Plant Based nutrition course and cannot wait to share all the amazing enlightening things I have learnt with you! Heres a quick summary which, even if you have little concern for the animals or the planet, you should really consider with an open mind for your own health:.
A #WFPB diet provides adequate and optimum nutrition. NB* Protein needs can be totally fulfilled by eating plants!! •
Supplements of pretty much any kind do not work and are often harmful. Get your nutrients from whole foods..
You may look lean and healthy from the outside, but inside your arteries are crying out to stop consuming animal products!.
Westernised diets, full of animal foods, added oils, and processed foods are linked to 7 out of the top 10 biggest causes of death..
WFPB eating is preventative of heart disease, stroke, asthma, arthritis, alzheimer’s, diabetes, obesity, and many cancers..
Heart disease is REVERSIBLE by following a WFPB approach..
Eating meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy is KILLING our environment and your body - it is not necessary, it is not sustainable, and it is not healthy in any way! 🙏🌱.
Ok, rant over for the day 😂 Have a fab day everyone! ♥️♥️
The view Barton Springs ☀️
It’s just one of the many things that make Austin the most perfect city. After swimming in the ice cold springs, we spent the evening at Zilker Park for Blues on the Green.
I’m trying to soak up as many adventures here as I can, taking lots of pictures along the way. I can’t wait to look back at these photos thirty years from now, and see how much things change.
Dinner tonight was absolutely 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼. What was it? You'll have to wait until the video recipe tomorrow 😎. #stew#kale#veggie
I was very grateful to receive a big bag full of fresh herbs from a colleague's garden. The lemon balm is saving my day - I have a migraine coming up and my feverfew tea that I drink for it is absolutely awful. But the lemon balm really masks the horrible taste. 🌱
A tip to store a surplus of herbs for longer: tie them up in bunches and hang upside down in a dark and dry space. My nearly empty wardrobe is perfect for this task. For those that wonder, no I don't have the ultimate minimalist wardrobe, but I'm moving and most my things are already in the new place. It's a gradual move. 😜
Amazing take away from @popinaldn
The beans are from Tesco, but every
thing else in from Popina's beautiful cafe in Duke St, Mayfair.
Here we have their Thai Green Curry Rolls and the Broccoli, Green beans, Tomato & Herbs Salad.
Their food is literally one of my favourites now.
Taking some inspo from the lovely @venetiafalconer with these peanut butter stuffed covered in dark chocolate dates 😍 Such a dreamy combo, I can’t get enough. One or two of these with a cup of tea is just the perfect snack, would 1000% recommend👌🏼👌🏼
Protein bowl 💪
This Buddha bowl has all the goods with marinated crispy tofu, cucumber salad, red cabbage, quinoa, black beans, red bell pepper, avocado, lime, & cilantro. Colorful & delicious 🌈 With a new puppy & continuing on my fitness journey I need all the energy I can get, preferably from whole plant-based sources 🌱

Thriving in Yourself: “A simple but important element to learn before you can thrive among others is the ability to thrive in yourself - your physical self. A tough mental state follows a well-conditioned physical body. Hindu teachings tell that the highest Dharma of an individual is the care for his body. This even takes precedence over the spiritual quest. Without the body, nothing can be achieved in the physical world. Put simply, the foundation to a successful life is being physically fit. Through exercise and a good diet, a sharp mental state will follow.” ~ from Thick Face, Black Heart by Chin-Ning Chu 👺🖤
