Healthy Vegan Friday #37 Triple Chocolate Brownie, Fruit Pizza and Vegan Budgets

FREE Smoothies For Weight Loss Bundle

Hello, it’s Friday already, yay!  It’s really starting to feel like spring here.  The sunshine is lifting my mood and although it’s still really cold I don’t mind too much as I’m heavily pregnant now would prefer it cooler rather than baking hot.

I’ve still not been making many new recipes as I’ve still not had the energy but I’m on a mission to save money at the moment and clear out my freezer of old food before the baby arrives so I can make more useful quick meals for that time.  So I’ve been eating up a lot of old batches and there are loads of them, weeks worth.  It’s surprising how quickly your freezers can be stacked full of homemade food if you don’t keep a regular check on it.  Anyway, it’s good I don’t have to make much from scratch at the moment.  I think I’ll just make a lot of pasta sauces for when the baby arrives.  Let me know if you have any ideas for quick healthy meals that can easily be kept in the freezer.

I just love Healthy Vegan Fridays.  I say to myself, I really need to find a particular recipe, and then it appears right on my blog with such perfect timing!  This week I wanted to find a healthy easter egg recipe for my toddler and I made Gabby’s Peanut Butter & Caramel Filled Chocolate Eggs which were absolutely gorgeous.  I wrapped them in foil and hid them in easy to find places which was so much fun.  This was the first time we also gave our little girl shop bought chocolate made with sugar, and she actually preferred Gabby’s Eggs and wanted ‘more more more’!

Peanut Butter Caramel Filled Chocolate Eggs

I of course overindulged in sugary chocolate and ended up wired all night and ill all the next day.  I guess I still haven’t learnt how to eat sugar in moderation.  I guess I’m just a sugar addict and I probably should just accept it’s not something I’m ever going to be able to have in moderation.  Still we had a lovely Easter.  I hope you did too.  Do you manage to stay healthy over Easter or do you indulge a bit too much too?

For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan, and Gabby @ The Veggie Nook.  It is a place to share your healthy vegan recipes that make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods. The recipes shared on this link up are intended to emphasis the beauty, creativity and benefits of a healthy, plant-based diet!

INSTANT TRIPLE CHOCOLATE BROWNIE- Vegan, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free & Oil-Free

Oh how I wish I’d not seen this recipe!  With my lack of energy for making food from scratch I often go without treats, but now I have no excuse as this is so quick and easy.  White chocolate too, how could you say no!

3: Fruit Pizza with a Maple Quinoa Crust

Fruit Pizza with a Maple Quinoa Crust

I’ve actually made a quinoa pizza base before and it works so well, but I’ve never actually had a fruit pizza.  It’s time I rectified that.  How delicious does this look!

I’m all about easy and simple recipes at the moment and I love that this is so quick and sugar free too.  I think this would be perfect as a jam substitute.
