Healthy Vegan Friday #45 Spanish Chickpeas, Creamy Cashew Kale & Green Smoothie Formula

I am writing this post on the previous Wednesday as my baby is now one day overdue and I have a feeling it will arrive before Healthy Vegan Friday’s on Friday so I’m scheduling this to go out in advance.  I’ll post some pics asap on my next post.  Happy Healthy Vegan Friday to you!

Curried Carrot-Coconut Salad

This looks like such a healthy and yet frugal vegan recipe.  I adore simple yet delicious recipes.



This recipe looks so easy to whip up with just a few healthy ingredients and will hopefully keep those sweet cravings at bay.
