FROM OUR KITCHEN TABLE

Full time doggie nurse, recipe testing burgers, healthy chocolate cake and more!

This week was rough to say the least. Our dog Nala woke up in the middle of the night on Thursday completely disoriented, dizzy, throwing up, unable to walk, with her head tilted to one side, and as you can imagine, completely nervous because of what was happening to her. We rushed her to the vet and although we'll know more in the next few days as she continues to recover, we suspect she got something called vestibular disorder which apparently is typical in senior dogs. Imagine having problems in your inner ear that completely mess up your balance and gives you the worst case of vertigo. Poor thing. She's been so sick these past few days and my heart and stomach have been in knots! We stayed home with her every single day, kept her company, gave her all her medications and even had to spoon (and syringe) feed her since she was refusing to eat. Thank goodness everything turned around on Sunday and she woke up so much better! I'´ll keep you posted on how she's doing as she continues to recover. This is why we've been a bit absent from social media these past few days and why some of our meals and pics for this week's recap today are a little simpler than usual. My whole mind, heart and soul were completely on getting Nala better. Yet another example for me of how important being healthy is. When you're sick nothing else matters. Here's the little patient with her dad. This was the day before she really started feeling better. Please keep her in your thoughts so she can make a quick recovery.

Are your ready for our favorites from the past week? I hope these help inspire some of your meals!

A WEEK'S WORTH OF VEGAN BREAKFAST IDEAS

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is what do you eat on a daily basis as a vegan. For me it's a no brainer since I actually have more variety in my diet now than before I was vegan, but I completely understand how this can be a complete mystery to someone eating a standard meat centered diet. I can understand it because I was once that person that thought all vegetarians and vegans ate were beans and rice. Breakfast especially can seem daunting if you are anything like I was, a bacon and egg breakfast eater all the way. Today I'm de-mystifying vegan breakfasts for you, and trust me it's quite possibly the easiest meal to veganize with just a couple of adjustments. It's also a meal in which you'll get to eat vegan versions of your favorites more than you ever thought possible.

If you follow our weekly Monday blog posts From our Kitchen Table, it's likely that you already have a ton of breakfast ideas under your belt.

Minha Cozinha, porridge and the magic of smoothies

It's that time of the week again! I have to tell you that I always have this little time together to look forward to on Mondays. It's so nice to sit down and recap, take a look at how and what I've been eating, and even remembering some of those incredible dishes I just seemed to put together but that should go on the "must make a video of this one" list. This week it was all about making recipes from the blog of a dear friend of mine, and we had the most amazing and stress free video shoot this weekend. I can't wait to show you what we filmed. Not only delicious dishes and recipes but new content for our Let's Chat section which is quickly becoming a member favorite! I feel like we're really getting in the groove of the video shoots and now they just go by effortlessly and are so much fun to make. Practice makes perfect as they say! We're nowhere near that, and I always find areas in which we can improve, but now it's relaxing enough that it's just plain fun. I can't wait to show you!

Today however it's all about the plant based goodies so let's get to them! I hope these inspire you for your meals this week, feel free to steal, adapt, tweak and make these your own.
