Welcome to my third Healthy Vegan Fridays. How’s your week been? This week has been quite trying for me as my toddler has been very grumpy and clingy day and night so it’s been quite hard to get anything productive done. I have some ongoing projects though. I’m reading the theory behind traditional bread making so that I can try and make some healthy loaves. I’ve been off bread for such a long time but I have discovered I can tolerate it if it’s made the old fashioned way, so I’m desperate to get some loaves made, but it seems more complex than I thought it would be.
I also have been trying out some of the recipes from Healthy Vegan Fridays which introduces me to so many new types of foods I would never have though of myself. Last week I made Strawberry Jam, Toasted Sesame Orange Teriyaki Vegetable and Quinoa Bowl, Sour cream courgette chips, and Carrot coconut curry soup. All of them were absolutely gorgeous! For some reason though I’m incapable of sticking to a recipe exactly. I always tweak somthing depending on what ingredients I have and what I can tolerate. No wonder I’m no good at baking!
We had 61 entries to Healthy Vegan Friday last week. It’s so encouraging to see so many other people with a passion for healthy plant based eating. We really value all your support.
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.

I’ve been reading lately that water fasting is the most effective form of detox. Our bodies are designed to have a break from food once in a while and fasts may have been naturally imposed due to food shortages in the past. Now we suffer from the effects of overindulgence. I haven’t had much success with fasting in the past but do intend to try it again and try and make it a regular practice in the future.
My Favourites from Last Week
Wow, I couldn’t have put this better myself. I totally agree that we worry far too much about protein in our society.
How stunning do these pancakes look? They are just begging to be tried…
Some great tips on eating out as a vegan but I especially loved the advice on how to just generally love food and avoid being a picky eater!

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
