I can't tell you how excited I am about today's video and recipe since we had a very special guest in the Brownble kitchen to film it! It was none other than the top expert in vegan travel out there, Wendy Werneth from The Nomadic Vegan. The go to place for anything related to vegan travel tips and how to enjoy the local traditions of any place you go to, try their local specialties while being vegan. I call it the cliffs notes of vegan travel because she quite literally does ALL the homework for you! She tells you what local foods are vegan or can be easily made vegan, she guides you through the spots you just don't want to miss, and she even teaches you the words you need to learn to explain your dietary needs in the local language! I mean... right?!Read More
Today in our online program we have two delicious quick sides you can make that actually go really well together! I'm talking about a creamy batch of homemade hummus and the most delicious eggplant side dish EVER.
We often serve these two together as part of what I like to call my deconstructed Arab plate, in which I serve some quinoa, a quick salad made out of cucumber, tomatoes and fresh herbs, and the roasted eggplant and hummus we're teaching you how to make today. It's amazing!
Hummus is a wonderful nutritional powerhouse and it's the perfect healthy snack along with some raw vegetables. It's also great used as a spread on sandwiches, paninis, wraps, and even on toast in the morning topped with some fresh tomatoes and greens.Read More
It's finally time for me to share one of my go-to healthy weekly snacks with you. I'm talking about delicious and high protein crepes made with... wait for it... chickpea flour! That's right! These are refined flour free, and we're adding some healthy fats in the form of nut butters for that perfect protein+healthy fats combo that is so important for feeling satisfied and especially for hormonal health in women.
I simply love these crepes because they totally hit the spot when you're craving something sweet but you want to avoid a richer dessert. These can be made sweet with the nut butter, banana and a drizzle of agave or maple syrup, or you can also make them savory! At the end of the video I'm giving you a ton of delicious ideas for serving these, from tacos to hummus and veggie wraps and more.Read More
Peanut butter and jelly are still one of the most classic and delicious pairings in food, and although you can never go wrong with the simplest peanut butter and jelly sandwich, we've changed the concept ever so slightly in the recipe we have for you today. These roll ups are the perfect snack, and in the simplest preparation you're getting a healthy dose of protein (did you know that peanuts aren't nuts but actually legumes?!), some whole grains, fruit, more protein as well as powerful antioxidants in the little surprise we're adding inside, and the sweet and yummy taste of jam. I always prefer to opt for a natural jam, sweetened only with fruit itself, and all-natural peanut butter without any added sugars or fats.
Kids love these roll ups and you can cut them and serve them on a plate, or eat them burrito style like I like to do. Serve them with some fruit or my favorite way, with a cold glass of your favorite non-dairy milk. You won't believe how delicious they are and how simple they are to make.
