VEGAN 101: WHAT DO VEGANS EAT?

I used to think that the question "why are you vegan?" was the one I got the most frequently until I noticed that there's one that beats it by a mile (and for good reason): What do you eat? This post is meant to give you the basics of what it means to be vegan, especially when it comes to what you put on your plate. This is part of a series of posts I'll be writing from time to time called Vegan 101, written especially for people making the transition to a vegan diet or making more vegan choices and curious about this way of eating. If you are a well seasoned vegan however, these posts are great for sharing with family and friends that have questions and concerns about your new lifestyle. So on to the matter at hand... what do vegans eat?!

Long time vegans might feel the need to respond to this question by saying: "what do you mean what do I eat? I eat food! Vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, spices, vegan cheeses and meats, bread pasta, chocolate... etc., etc..." and wonder why it's such a big mystery to people. It's so important to look back to your pre-vegan days to understand why this really is such a hard concept to grasp.

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.

Breakfast toast addiction, stuffed mushrooms, and the best movie snack for dinner

I still can't believe Christmas is almost upon us, not to mention a brand new year! Is it just me or did this one fly by? This past week was so busy for us, not only am I getting ready for our own Christmas dinner with friends and all the dishes I'm planning to make (yes, you'll get an inside look at everything I promise!), but we were also wrapping up our final video shoots for this year! We made so many amazing dishes, and you'll have them all soon, I've included some sneak peeks below! The thing I'm most excited to tell you though, is that between tomorrow and Wednesday, we're planning on showering you with videos! Including a brand new type of video in our youtube channel, and a brand new section for our lovely members!

I can't wait to show you what we've been cooking. We've been posting so many delicious cakes, pies and rich holiday food, but come January we're getting as healthy as possible together (with a little naughtiness mixed in here and there, as is my rule of thumb!). Without further ado, let's get to this week's favorite meals from our kitchen table to yours.

Pancakes, recipe testing, and getting Holiday ready at Brownble a.k.a CHOCOLATE!

You won't believe how crazy things have been around here. We've been filming non-stop (did you see our brand new Christmas intro and decor?!), which also means that between video shoots there's also some final recipe testing going on, not to mention the fact that we've completely revamped the site so you can have the most user friendly experience at Brownble! Now you can see everything that's new right in the home page, we've made our blog our home page since it really is wher you and I get to hang out. We've added a recipe section where both brownble members and people wanting to find out more and cook some of the recipes in our youtube videos can get cooking asap.
