Recipes

All of my recipes are created to be quick, healthy, delicious and vegan (meaning they use no animal foods). They are meat-free, fish-free, dairy-free, and egg-free.

Most are also gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, or can easily be made so with some simple swaps. They are free of refined sugars, and most don't use any added sweeteners so many are suitable for diabetics.

I also sometimes share recipes from other people, and I am always conscious of choosing a recipe that is as healthy and vegan as I would make myself.

If you like recipes, you should pick up my free 3-day meal plan so that I can show you how to put recipes together into a balanced and nutritious eating plan.

Creamy Sunflower Hemp Milk Recipe

DIY sunflower hemp milk, rich in zinc, selenium, and omega-3

You can make your own plant-based milks at home so easily! This one is a combination of sunflower and hemp seeds for a boost of zinc, selenium, and omega-3.

There are so many choices out there in stores for non-dairy milks, but sometimes it's nice to know you can make your own at home in minutes!

Sunflower seeds are one of the 5 foods that I eat every day, because it's difficult to get enough selenium, which is important for your immune system, as well as healthy hair, skin, and nails.
