Hey guys! Are you one of those people who eats breakfast and then you’re hungry an hour later? Maybe you end up binging on snacks and sweets at the office to hold you over until lunch? Or do you live with a digestive issue or two that leaves you in pain or bloated at the most inconvenient times? Well, this nutrient dense breakfast smoothie recipe will help to combat both hunger and digestive issues in just a few gulps!breakfast smoothie, vegan, gluten free, bloating remedy, holistic health, holistic nutrition, how to reduce bloating, how to stop gas and bloating, how to get rid of a bloated stomach

Hangry

Lashing out, being short on patience or straight up turning into Cruella deVille on your co-workers or family when hungry? You need this breakfast smoothie in your life! To combat hunger pains, I added 1 teaspoon of flaxseed meal and 2 teaspoons of chia seeds. Both are PACKED with fiber, iron, omega 3-s  and help with digestive issues. Flaxseed also promotes the following:

  • Natural detoxification,
  • Weight & fat loss by reducing sugar cravings.
  • Reduce skin dryness and flakiness while improving symptoms of acne, rosacea, and eczema.
  • Anti-inflammatory (FYI: inflamed bodies hold onto excess weight),
  • Reduce gut inflammation (great for Crohn’s patients)
  • Reduce cholesterol levels
  • Promotes healthy hair & nails.

Make sure your frozen banana is soft enough to be blended without harming your blender’s blade. Blend all ingredients for about 90 seconds to 2 minutes and serve immediately. If you prefer “frothy” aka thicker smoothies just add more rolled oats.

Topping recommendations: Sprouted Granola, cacao nibs, chia seeds, fruit of choice  but I recommend banana with a dash of cinnamon. I topped mine with One Degree Organics Cacao Sprouted Granola

I drank this smoothie around 8:00 am and was not hungry until 12:30pm to give you an idea of how well this baby fights hunger.

Just keep in mind that dates are VERY HIGH in sugar content (approx 65g of sugar per 100 gram serving). Although it’s natural sugar, it is still sugar and should be consumed in moderation. Chia seeds were added for a boost of omega-3’s and fiber, brain food!

Am I the only one who gets hungry an hour or so after eating breakfast? I swear, some days I have to eat 2 meals in order to be full. Do you have a favorite breakfast food? Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods! You can have so much fun making them with a variety fruit fillings and toppings. They’re also super easy to make with kids! Well, after months of experimenting, I’ve finally found a tasty way to enjoy vegan pancakes that will leave your sweet tooth satisfied and belly full!vegan chia pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, vegan pancakes, healthy vegan, easy vegan pancake recipes, vegan recipes, vegan breakfast recipes, vegan blueberry chia pancakes, enjoy life foods, enjoy life pancake mix, madhava pancake mix

You won’t feel bad one bit about eating a short stack of these pancakes! They’re loaded with plenty of vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. They’re also moist, fluffy and absolutely delicious! vegan chia pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, vegan pancakes, healthy vegan, easy vegan pancake recipes, vegan recipes, vegan breakfast recipes, vegan blueberry chia pancakes, enjoy life pancake mix, madhava pancake mix vegan chia pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, vegan pancakes, healthy vegan, easy vegan pancake recipes, vegan recipes, vegan breakfast recipes, vegan blueberry chia pancakes, enjoy life foods, enjoy life pancake mix, madhava pancake mixYou don’t need any crazy ingredients and they’ll take less than 20 minutes to make! I really love chowing down on these vegan pancakes after a high intensity workout.

If you’re in the mood to make your batch of vegan pancakes from scratch then take a look at this recipe from Oh She Glows .

But if you’re like me and short on time, just use any vegan pancake mix of choice. My 2 favorite plant-based pancake mixes are from Enjoy Life Foods and Madhava.

Clean and good for you additional ingredients include:

Rolled Oats: high in fiber and low sodium.

Organic Chia Seeds: healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium.

Blueberries (use any preferred fruit filling): Blueberries are a very good source of vitamin K, vitamin C and manganese. Blueberries are also a good source of fiber and copper.

Now that we’ve got that out the way let’s get down to business! Since I didn’t make this batch of vegan pancakes from scratch there’s really no need for crazy measuring. You can add as little or as much of the ingredients as you’d like! I’ve substituted blueberries for vegan chocolate chips, banana, vanilla and cinnamon. All variations came out with great tasting results!

What made these vegan pancakes even more irresistible was topping them with blueberry hemp granola and banana. You’ll find that these pancakes are sweet enough so there won’t be a huge need for syrup. If you’re looking for a syrup that isn’t as sweet as most try coconut palm syrup. I added a drizzle of this low glycemic syrup and fell in love!vegan chia pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, vegan pancakes, healthy vegan, easy vegan pancake recipes, vegan recipes, vegan breakfast recipes, vegan blueberry chia pancakes, enjoy life foods, enjoy life pancake mix, madhava pancake mix vegan chia pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, vegan pancakes, healthy vegan, easy vegan pancake recipes, vegan recipes, vegan breakfast recipes, vegan blueberry chia pancakes, enjoy life foods, enjoy life pancake mix, madhava pancake mix vegan chia pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, vegan pancakes, healthy vegan, easy vegan pancake recipes, vegan recipes, vegan breakfast recipes, vegan blueberry chia pancakes, enjoy life foods, enjoy life pancake mix, madhava pancake mix vegan chia pancakes, oatmeal pancakes, vegan pancakes, healthy vegan, easy vegan pancake recipes, vegan recipes, vegan breakfast recipes, vegan blueberry chia pancakes, enjoy life foods, enjoy life pancake mix, madhava pancake mixLet me know if you end up trying this recipe!

Hey Guys! What is your favorite comfort food? Lasagna is my go to, especially around the holidays! I was craving my mom’s famous lasagna the other day but I ran into two problems. First, I didn’t know how to make lasagna. In fact , I’ve always avoided learning how to make it. Second, my mom’s lasagna is not vegan. She makes it the traditional way but with a West Indian/Italian fusion of herbs and spices. Well, I decided to take a leap of faith and not only make lasagna for the 1st time but to also make it 100% PLANT BASED!vegan lasagna, green lentil lasagna, explore cuisine, kite hill rocitta, vegan cheese, vegan ricotta, how to make vegan lasagna, plant based recipes, organic, gluten free lasagna, gluten free, kosher lasagna, essence eats, healthy hair to toevegan lasagna, green lentil lasagna, explore cuisine, kite hill rocitta, vegan cheese, vegan ricotta, how to make vegan lasagna, plant based recipes, organic, gluten free lasagna, gluten free, kosher lasagna, essence eats, healthy hair to toe

While on a Whole Foods run I stumbled across these Organic Green Lentil Lasagna sheets from Explore Cuisine. They are non gmo, gluten-free, kosher and vegan which is awesome. Get this, they’re also NO BOIL. I realized that little tid bit as I opened the box and had a pot of water ready to boil. These sheets are loaded with plenty of plant-based protein (11g per serving). Ingredients include: organic green lentil flour, pea flour and organic brown rice flour.

I stuck to marinara as my sauce because it’s easy and hard to mess up. As far as cheeses, I used Kite Hill‘s Almond Milk based Ricotta as my filling.vegan lasagna, green lentil lasagna, explore cuisine, kite hill rocitta, vegan cheese, vegan ricotta, how to make vegan lasagna, plant based recipes, organic, gluten free lasagna, gluten free, kosher lasagna, essence eats, healthy hair to toe vegan lasagna, green lentil lasagna, explore cuisine, kite hill rocitta, vegan cheese, vegan ricotta, how to make vegan lasagna, plant based recipes, organic, gluten free lasagna, gluten free, kosher lasagna, essence eats, healthy hair to toe This was my 1st time trying their ricotta and it was DELICIOUS! I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional ricotta cheese. The taste and texture were always an issue for me. Bell peppers, onion, Field Roast Italian Sausage, baby spinach leaves and fresh basil rounded out the remaining filling of this hearty vegan lasagna.

I topped my vegan lasagna with Field Roast Creamy Original Slices. I love these slices on my sandwiches and as a snack alone so it was a no brainer for me. They melted beautifully and reheat very well! Last, I garnished with basil leaves and homemade vegan parmesan cheese. That’s it!

Vegan Banana Bread Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a quick, delicious and nutritious way to start your day. It takes less than 10 minutes to make and it’s the perfect HEALTHY breakfast option for people on the go. You can experiment with a ton of different flavors so you won’t get bored either! Overnight oats may also help you curb your appetite mid morning (keep you away from the vending machines at the office). This easy breakfast is full of fiber, protein and everything good for you in between! I love this recipe because I’m able to enjoy all the delicious flavors of banana bread without turning on the oven. This is definitely the easiest and most flavor packed overnight oats recipe I’ve made so far!vegan, vegan breakfast, vegan breakfast indeas, vegan overnight oats, overnight oats recipe, healthy vegan recipes, healthy vegan, low glycemic recipes, health, wellness, healthy livingvegan, vegan breakfast, vegan breakfast indeas, vegan overnight oats, overnight oats recipe, healthy vegan recipes, healthy vegan, low glycemic recipes, health, wellness, healthy living

Confession: This recipe was done on a whim. I almost threw out my overly ripened bananas the other day. They were so ripe that I could smell them 2 rooms away from my kitchen. Normally, I would’ve put them to use and made some vegan banana bread but I was out of flour. While making a basic jar of overnight oats, I figured why not add it to my oatmeal?vegan, vegan breakfast, vegan breakfast indeas, vegan overnight oats, overnight oats recipe, healthy vegan recipes, healthy vegan, low glycemic recipes, health, wellness, healthy livingvegan, vegan breakfast, vegan breakfast indeas, vegan overnight oats, overnight oats recipe, healthy vegan recipes, healthy vegan, low glycemic recipes, health, wellness, healthy living

The result? Pure banana bread heaven without the guilt of calories, added sugar or having to turn the oven on!  vegan, vegan breakfast, vegan breakfast indeas, vegan overnight oats, overnight oats recipe, healthy vegan recipes, healthy vegan, low glycemic recipes, health, wellness, healthy livingvegan, vegan breakfast, vegan breakfast indeas, vegan overnight oats, overnight oats recipe, healthy vegan recipes, healthy vegan, low glycemic recipes, health, wellness, healthy living vegan, vegan breakfast, vegan breakfast indeas, vegan overnight oats, overnight oats recipe, healthy vegan recipes, healthy vegan, low glycemic recipes, health, wellness, healthy livingThe ingredients blended so well! Whole Foods frozen wild blueberries were perfect because they’re very tiny and won’t overpower your oats. I have the biggest pet peeve with chunky fruit in anything I eat (blueberry pancakes w/o the blueberries please!..lol). I topped with a handful of One Degree Organics Sprouted Grain Granola (Cacao flavor).

In the past, my overnight oats would come out bland, rough in texture and wouldn’t satisfy my appetite. These overnight oats came out creamy and bursting with flavor!
