Tiramisu Chia Seed PuddingDecadent Vegan Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding! Coffee Chocolate Chia pudding layered with creamy vanilla layer topped with whipped coconut cream and cocoa powder. Glutenfree Soyfree Nutfree Dairyfree   Jump to Recipe  When you can have Tiramisu Chia seed pudding for breakfast, then why wouldn’t you! This easy chia pudding has 3 layers. The Chocolate Coffee layer has warmed non dairy milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, some coffee, maple syrup or other sweetener, and chia seeds. The warmed milk helps the chia seed absorb the liquid evenly and quickly and the pudding thickens within 15 mins! For the cream layer I use warmed non dairy milk, almond extract, a pinch of salt and lemon juice for the cheese flavor, maple syrup or other sweetener, and chia seeds. The almond extract adds a bit of amaretto flavor without the liquor. You can add the extract to either the chocolate layer or the cream layer. The lemon and salt add a slight cream cheese like flavor which works amazingly. You can omit them for a plain vanilla pudding layer as well. The third layer is some fluffy whipped coconut cream and a dusting of good cocoa! and done.Continue reading: Tiramisu Chia Seed PuddingThe post Tiramisu Chia Seed Pudding appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Vegan Apple Cinnamon Scones (No Oil Low Fat)

Vegan Apple Cinnamon Scones (No Oil Low Fat)Vegan Apple Cinnamon Scones! Crisp Apple Scones with No added refined Oil and No Coconut milk! Lower fat delicious Apple Pie Scones. Vegan Soy-free Oil-free Recipe. Can be nut-free.  Jump to Recipe Fall Baking needs scones! These Spiced Cinnamony Apple Scones are just perfect to use the apple bounty. They are also low-fat with no added oil and no full fat coconut milk! And yes, they are still crisp and biscuity! I usually use full fat coconut milk for scones when making the without oil/­­butmter and that works out really well. It is not low fat, so I decided to experiment with other options. The 2 things tot make a good low fat scone are 1. do all possible things to keep the moisture from baking out, which can result in dry scones, 2. Chilling at several points for the biscuit like texture rather than cake or muffin texture. In these scones, I use almond milk and apple sauce as the wet ingredients, which are frozen until some portions of the mix freezes. This mix is used to make the scone dough. The apples are tossed in maple syrup to keep a barrier between the apple moisture and the scone dough. The dough is topped with a liberal dusting of cinnamon and sugar. This helps seal in some of the moisture during baking. The shaped scones are chilled again before baking for a nice crisp crumb. Substitution options are in the notes and in the post. Lets make these!Continue reading: Vegan Apple Cinnamon Scones (No Oil Low Fat)The post Vegan Apple Cinnamon Scones (No Oil Low Fat) appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Subway Testing Beyond Meatball Sub

September 20 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

As of September 5th, the Beyond Meatball™ Marinara sub has been available for a limited time only in more than 600 select locations in the U.S. Participating restaurant locations include Jackson, Mississippi; South Bend-Elkhart, Indiana; Fresno-Visalia, California; Louisville, Kentucky; and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The Beyond Meatball™ Marinara sub will make its way to select Canada locations on September 20th. The Beyond Meat team collaborated to make the meatballs exclusively for Subway. The six-inch toasted subs are made with Beyond Meats protein-packed meatballs and topped with provolone cheese, marinara sauce and grated Parmesan cheese. According to Subway’s website, the original meatball marinara sub has 20 grams of protein (using beef). With Beyond, it’ll weigh in at 24 grams of protein per sub. How to order it? Well, you can always request it on standard Italian or 9-grain wheat and forego the provolone and Parmesan to make it vegan. As for gluten-free or soy-free options, unfortunately it won’t be possible, as the meatballs were made with a special proprietary blend of breadcrumbs by Subway, which includes soybean oil. Subway appeals to so many fans because we truly offer something for everyone. Our guests want to feel good about what they eat and they […] The post Subway Testing Beyond Meatball Sub appeared first on HappyCow Blog.

Plant-Based Power Chef Charity Morgan on Fueling The Tennessee Titans with Plants

September 16 2019 Meatless Monday 

Plant-Based Power Chef Charity Morgan on Fueling The Tennessee Titans with PlantsThere are plenty of reasons to eat more plant-based foods. For NFL linebacker Derrick Morgan, who most recently played on the Tennessee Titans, the reason was clear: He wanted to become an even better athlete. [Derrick] wanted to have a competitive edge for training on and off the field, Morgans wife, Chef Charity Morgan , said. After doing extensive research on using plant-based foods as fuel, Derrick decided to fully commit to plant-based eating — cold turkey — back in 2017. His wife Charity and two young kids, soon followed his lead. Now, the whole Morgan clan eats all plant-based, all the time. But this is hardly where their plant-based story ends. The Morgans new approach to eating soon made its way onto the football field. Charity, a Le Cordon Bleu-trained professional chef, gradually transitioned her cooking style to plant-based and, with that, began to serve meals to other Tennessee Titans. For me, it was just re-educating the guys about what food looks like. Once they realized they could have lasagna, enchiladas and mac and cheese in plant-based form, they were so stoked , she said. Charity cooks up plant-based dishes for many of the players, whove found that the meals leave them energized and ready to play. A lot of them tell me they feel faster on the field, they feel more energetic , Charity said of the players, adding that many said they didnt feel sluggish like they normally do after a big lunch.  Chef Charitys recipes are always evolving, but there are a few staples she said the players request on the reg. Her plant-based truffle mac and cheese is by far the players most beloved recipe, and her tacos, which she makes with soyrizo, black beans, bell peppers, onion and garlic are another favorite.  While there is a wealth of information around plant-based eating, Chef Charity said protein is often the players first concern when they sign up for her meals. She said being an educator comes as part of her job as a chef: Once she breaks down the beneficial nutrients in foods like vegetables, lentils and legumes, she said the players worries are easily quelled. The chef labels all of the players meals clearly so they know what to expect before digging in, and every dish is protein-packed. Her Pro-Bowl, a mix of lentils, chickpeas, hemp seeds, kale and spinach, is incredibly protein-dense.  While many of the Titans have incorporated plant-based eating into their lives (and their training), not all have committed as wholly as the Morgan family has — and, as Chef Charity put it, thats completely OK. I tell people all the time, even if you start with Meatless Monday, thats great. I encourage that , she said, adding that Meatless Monday often ends up being a gateway to even more plant-based eating. People realize they create their own [unnecessary] barriers, but once they try [to eat a little less meat], they start to realize that its really not so difficult. We create our own roadblocks that dont really exist in reality, she said.  So while conventional wisdom may tell us that professional football players need a meat-heavy diet to perform their best, the real proof is in the Titans.  Learn more about plant-based athletes from the experts - check out Game Changers the movie . A UFC fighter discovers an elite group of athletes proving everything he’d been taught about protein was a lie . This documentary breaks down the stereotypes, myths and realities of protein and strength around plant-based eating for professional athletes. Check it out in your local theaters.

Strawberry Rhubarb Hemp Breakfast Bites

August 15 2019 My New Roots 

Strawberry Rhubarb Hemp Breakfast Bites This post is a long time coming! And Im so excited to finally be sharing my bedroom with you all. Weve now been in our home for a year and a bit, and although its (still!) not complete, were enjoying working on the finishing details here and there. Honestly, I dont think we will ever be done, and that is okay. This entire experience has made me way more patient, realistic, and Ive learned to set my expectations super low on every project so that instead of being disappointed, Im often positively surprised! We moved with just boxes, zero furniture, and essentially had to start over in that department. That meant a new bed, a new mattress and all new linens, since we decided to make the jump from a queen size mattress to a king (literally one of the best life decisions, ever). My husband and I are both DIY-ers, and serious thrift store shoppers, and we knew that we wanted to build a bed ourselves, then find the rest of bedroom furniture second-hand. The one place where we knew we wanted to really take our time considering was a mattress and the bedding. If you read this blog, you probably care about your health to some degree. Like me, you may prioritize buying organic produce, splurge on environmentally-conscious clothing, and look to sustainable skincare and beauty products. But have you ever thought about your bedroom environment? We spend a third of our life in bed (at least we should), so its just as important to consider the things that we interact with in our homes, not just what goes in and on our bodies. In fact, the greatest exposure to chemicals you can have in a day, could be while youre sleeping. When I started looking into buying a mattress, I found the options were totally overwhelming. And with so many retailers moving to online platforms and selling directly to consumers, prices have been slashed considerably, and the deals are tempting. Mattresses are one of those things that seem pretty innocuous, and maybe even a place to save a few bucks. But dig a little deeper and youll see that the thing you spend so much time on, is not the thing you should spending less money on, as youll be paying for cheaper materials with your health. Modern, conventional mattresses are made with a laundry list of harmful substances that can be affecting you and your family. One of the most offensive ingredients found in conventional mattresses is memory foam made from polyurethane; a highly flammable, petroleum-based material. Polyurethane foam emits Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, nausea, and can also damage the liver, kidneys and central nervous system, according to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration. Un-ironically referred to as solid gasoline, polyurethane foam is typically wrapped in or treated with fire retardant chemicals to meet the Federal and State flammability standards in the US, otherwise it would be totally unsafe. Which brings me to the second thing to watch out for in mattresses, and that is chemical fire-retardants (CFRs). These are compounds added to the materials in a mattress to protect you, and they are an inexpensive way to meet safety standards. The issue is that CFRs do not fully bind to materials, and are released into the air through the mattress, then build up in the body causing some people lifelong health issues.   Formaldehyde, antimony, boric acid, and halogenated flame retardants are some of the most damaging CFRs found in modern mattresses, and the frustrating thing is that companies are not required to disclose which ones they are using. Unless a mattress company is explicitly eliminating these chemicals from their production and using a natural material alternative, they are likely using one of the harmful chemicals listed above. I looked at a number of organic /­­ natural mattress companies in my research, and the one that stood out to me was Naturepedic. They are made with certified organic cotton, wool, and latex. For heavy-duty support without any health or allergy concerns, Naturepedic only uses the highest quality innersprings available made from recycled steel.. , and steel, with Naturepedic ensured  the purity of every material used, along with fair labour practices. I reached out to Naturepedic, to see if they would be open to me trying a mattress out and blogging about it. They agreed, and sent me their EOS  (Ergonomic Organic Sleep) mattress that allows for fully customized layers for finding the exact right amount of firmness (you can even choose different support styles from your sleep partner, or swap out the layers down the line in case your preferences change). Id never heard of anything like that before, and though it was so brilliant! I went to the showroom in Toronto to try out the mattress in person, which was very helpful, but you can also just order online if you know what kind of consistency you like. The mattress components were delivered to my door, and it was easy to assemble, as everything gets zipped into a giant, certified organic cotton casing. After spending the last twelve months on this bed, I can confirm that its been the best year of sleep in my entire life (even post-child, haha!). Besides the fact that I love going to bed knowing that I am breathing completely clean air, and that the materials that went into the mattress were made with a deep commitment to protecting the environment, its simply the most supportive and comfortable mattress Ive ever tried. Period. I cannot recommend this mattress enough! The other thing to consider when outfitting your bedroom is the bedding itself. Because we come into direct, skin-to-product contact with these textiles, its essential to choose something non-toxic. Most bedding on the market is made with cotton, one of the most chemical-laden crops grown. According to Pesticide Action Network North America, Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other single crop and epitomizes the worst effects of chemically dependent agriculture. Each year cotton producers around the world use nearly $2.6 billion worth of pesticides -- more than 10 per cent of the worlds pesticides and nearly 25 per cent of the worlds insecticides. If youre going to sleep in cotton, choose organic whenever you can. Linen is a great alternative material because it is a much lower impact material on the environment, and requires very little intervention to be grown. Coyuchi is a brand recommended to me by my dear friend Elenore, who has the highest standards I know of Coyuchis textile line is not only 100% organic, but also consciously processed, meaning that they use low-impact dyes for colour that is kind to the planet and our sensitive skin. Coyuchi offered to send me some bedding to try out and I was instantly obsessed. Their textiles are beyond delicious, super soft, and incredibly comfortable. For a duvet cover, I chose the Crystal Cove pattern in white. I loved this choice since its reversible - a textured weave that looks cozy in the winter, and a crinkled cotton underside, which I like to face up in the summer. I also love their Topanga Matelasse blanket, shown here in warm stripe, which is also reversible (super convenient if you want to change up the look of your bedding with a quick flip!). For winter, their Cloud Brushed flannel sheets are super luxurious, and especially enjoyable its very hard to find organic flannel! Words cannot describe the feeling of slipping into these on a chilly night. The giant back pillows in the bed are also from Coyuchi, and are perfect if you have an open-frame bed without a headboard. I like to sit up and read in bed, and these pillows are firm enough to act as a headboard itself. When youre shopping for any kind of textile (bedding, furniture, or clothing), the most important mark to look for is the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification. GOTS is recognized as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well. Unlike most textile and mattress companies, both Coyuchi and Naturepedic are GOTS certified and adhere to their strict standards for agriculture and labour. Okay, lets get to the recipe! I experimented with these breakfast bites for a long time. At first, I was blending up cashews to make flour, but that got expensive, and ultimately I wanted the recipe to be allergen-free (so the nuts had to go!). As an alternative, I opted for hemp seeds, which worked beautifully. Its easy to make your own hemp flour in a food processor in a few seconds. Ive been using it baked goods lately and love how moist and tender the results are! I used strawberries and rhubarb for these nuggets of joy, but since were moving into stone fruit season, Ill soon be switching it up and using peaches, plums, pluots, apricots, and cherries in their place. Any fruit will work as long as its not super moist (like melons). Raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries would be lovely here too. Simply use 1 cup of chopped fresh fruit in any combination that tickles your fancy. To change up the flavour even more, add orange zest, warm spices like cinnamon and cardamom, or even some cacao powder for a chocolate version. Yum! I really wanted to make a successful vegan version of these, so I tried using banana in place of the egg. The results were decent, but a little too moist. If I made these again, I would use the banana plus a tablespoon of ground flax seeds. If any of you do that, please let me know in the comments!     Print recipe     Strawberry Rhubarb Hemp Breakfast Bites Makes 12 Ingredients: 1 1/­­2 cups /­­ 215g hemp seeds 1/­­4 cup /­­ 35g arrowroot 1/­­4 tsp. flaky salt, plus more for garnish, if desired 1 tsp. baking powder 1 egg (or 1 ripe banana, mashed) 1/­­4 cup /­­ 60ml pure maple syrup 2 tsp. vanilla extract (or 1/­­2 tsp. vanilla powder) 1/­­2 cup /­­ 85g chopped strawberries 1/­­2 cup /­­ 60g chopped rhubarb (2-3 slim stalks) expeller-pressed coconut oil for greasing (or use muffin liners Directions: 1. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin with coconut oil. Preheat oven to 350°F /­­ 175°C. 2. Wash the strawberries and rhubarb well. Slice the rhubarb into small discs, and cut the strawberries into small chunks. Reserve 3 strawberries for topping the breakfast bites, if desired (remove greens, then slice them top to bottom). Set fruit aside.  3. In a food processor, blend hemp seeds until theyre a fine powder (dont go too far or youll end up with hemp seed butter!). Add the arrowroot, salt and baking powder and pulse a few times to combine. 4. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg or banana, maple syrup, and vanilla extract together. Add the hemp seed flour blend, and stir to combine. Fold in the rhubarb and strawberries. 5.  Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the batter into each prepared muffin tin. If desired, place a slice of strawberry on top of each bite. Set in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly golden. 6. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. 7. Enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for five days. Aside from getting the chemicals out of your space, here are five other ways to improve the health of your bedroom, and your sleep! Add plants - having a couple of living things in your sleeping space keeps the air clean and fresh. Snake plants, areca palms, aloe vera and orchids are especially helpful, since they absorb CO2 at night, even when they are not photosynthesizing.  Consider airflow - keeping a window cracked at night is a good way to get some fresh air while you sleep. If its noisy outside, keep your window open during the day to ensure full air exchange, and close it right before bed. It’s very important to keep the air in your space fresh and moving. Salt rock lamps - these are said to purify the air by omitting negative ions. I cannot confirm this in any way, but I can confirm that the light they give off is incredibly soothing and helps me wind down at the end of the day. Overhead lighting is very stimulating (and let’s be honest, not overly sexy). Keep the devices out - dont work in bed, and avoid using your phone before snoozing. Blue light from screens inhibits our bodys ability to make melatonin, our sleep-wake hormone. If you choose to keep your phone in your room overnight, set it to airplane mode while you sleep so youre not exposing yourself to radiation from EMFs (Electromagnetic Field).  Beeswax candles - yes, its cozy to burn candles before bed, but paraffin candles pollute the air, full stop. Soy is a better alternative, but beeswax is my favourite since it actually helps purify the air by omitting negative ions, and removing dust and dander.

Behind the Scenes with Facebook HQ’s Plant-Based Chef, Anthony Moraes

September 30 2019 Meatless Monday 

Behind the Scenes with Facebook HQ’s Plant-Based Chef, Anthony MoraesFacebook has always been a pioneer in the world of technology, but thanks to Anthony Moraes, Head Wellness Chef at Facebooks headquarters in New York City, the company is now a shining example of how plant-based eating can be integrated into corporate dining services. Meatless Monday had the opportunity to speak with Chef Moraes about Facebooks fully plant-based café, Ceci et Cela, and how people simply cant stop talking, tweeting, and Instagramming about the innovative meatless meals he and his team are cooking up. What was the motivation behind having an entirely plant-based cafe in Facebooks HQ? Do other cafes at Facebook also serve vegetarian options? The motivation for having an entirely plant-based café came from our desire to provide interesting and innovative plant-based concepts that complement our mainstream cafes.  We always have our finger on the pulse of what is happening in the world of food and drink, and as more people switch to alternative diets, we wanted to accommodate those preferences by creating a place that offers food that is healthy, cutting edge, and suitable for all eating lifestyles. Our daily menus incorporate vegan, vegetarian, Meatless Monday, keto, paleo, juicing, and healthy-living options. How have employees reacted to Ceci et Cela?  Ceci et Cela opened up to rave reviews from our employees, and it continues to receive amazing feedback after nearly two years in operation. How do you entice employees to choose a plant-base option over a meat-centric dish? We post some mouthwatering pictures of the food on our internal Facebook page, and these photos tend to draw in both plant-based diners and meat eaters, but most of the time its word-of-mouth that gets the line started. Whats the most popular dish at Ceci et Cela? Its hard to say, since our menu changes weekly and we try to never repeat a dish. But I guess if we had to pick, there is one salad that I created for our opening menu that is so immensely popular that someone created a Fan Page for it; its called All Hail The Kale.  Lol... It has many followers. So funny... Plant-based has become more popular, what plant-based cuisine trends or insights can you share from your success with Cecis? Have you seen more traffic on Mondays? Running a plant-based café allows us to be creative, but it also enables us to see which types of plant-based foods outshine the others. Currently, theres a trend towards trying different varieties of nut milks. We make all of our own nut milks in-house, and Ive noticed a growing interest in other plant-based milks beyond the common almond and soy. Oat milk has grown in popularity, but we also experiment with walnuts, macadamia nuts, various dried legumes, and seeds.   I also see that more people are concerned with their gut health. We offer kombucha on tap as well as house-made probiotic foods and drinks. As for a traffic boost on Mondays, we do have a healthy Monday service due to our steady flow of plant-based eaters and our committed Meatless Monday diners. Ironically, we see an even bigger spike on Tuesdays, as all of our Monday guests go back and tell their friends and co-workers about their incredible meal at Ceci et Cela. A third trend that started off as more of a feeling is the correlation between clean nutrition and beauty (I believe theyve coined a word for it now, Nutraceuticals). So, I put together a Beauty Bar within our café that is set up like a makeup station complete with a lighted mirror, compact cases, perfume bottles, blush brushes, etc. But instead of makeup, I filled all of these cases and jars with superfood additives like, acai powder, maca, chlorella, camu-camu, pine oil, and matcha so that guests can come up to the bar and add an extra boost of super foods to their food or drink. At the Beauty Bar, Ive also included a nicely-framed legend explaining what additives are good for your hair, your nails, your skin, eyes, etc... It has become immensely popular and is a very Instagram-able station. Have employees started eating more plant-based meals as a result of trying new foods at Cecis? Any stories you can share? There are so many stories of employees coming to us and thanking us for re-introducing them to the delicious potential of vegetables. Our team does such an incredible job at making all of our offerings attractive and appealing to everyone, not just the vegans and vegetarians. I am grateful for the many stories and accolades we receive each week. One employee came to me and said that he has strictly only eaten at Ceci et Cela for the past 6 months and lost 30 pounds. A few employees have brought in their personal trainers and nutritionists to see everything we do. Another employee said that Ceci et Cela was an official part of her wedding plan this summer!

Gluten-free and nut-free options.  Jump to Recipe Sometimes you just want a ridiculously good pizza and the pizza restaurants are too far away, have shut down, or offer sub par vegan experience. Then you just go to the kitchen and whip up a super fresh delicious margherita pizza with gooey cashew cheese, all made from scratch. You can speed up the process by either making the components ahead of time or using store bought options. With a store bought pizza sauce, this pizza comes together in 20-30 mins and then you have to wait and fight over the fresh slices. The recipe is easily doubled! The pizza dough (its my easy 20 minute pizza dough) doesn’t need much kneading. Just bring the dough together and let it rise for 15 mins, then shape it using some flour. This dough is shaped easily as it does not have much gluten development (which develops with longer kneading) and hence is not the stretchy traditional pizza dough, so no struggling to roll it out! The pizza sauce is a few ingredients.  The cashew mozzarella cheese sauce is the sauce from my Mushroom Quesadilla. Just blend, and simmer to thicken, and use. No chill time to let it set. The final result we want is a cheesy melty topping, So keep the state as thick saucy to begin with! problem solved. This pizza and the mozzarella is adapted from my margherita from Everyday Kitchen book. The mozzarella recipe in the book can be set into slices, or balls or whatever and used wherever. Lets make this version for your pizza fix.Continue reading: Vegan Margherita Pizza With Cashew MozzarellaThe post Vegan Margherita Pizza With Cashew Mozzarella appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Add some dried fruit/­­raisins, chocolate chips or other additions, add some spices of choice. Add an icing,make this cookie your own. If you like tahini, you will also love my Chocolate tahini flourless cookies! What is Tahini? Tahini is just blended up toasted hulled sesame seeds. The seeds are blended/­­processed until smooth and fluffy sesame seed butter. The flavor and texture of tahini varies significantly with brand. Tahini adds a nutty, slightly bitter (but pleasing bitter) profile wherever you use it. However, depending on the brand, it might add a lot more bitter. This bitter especially will show up in sweet things like this cookie. For best results use a brand that you generally like the flavor of. I like Soom and Whole foods brand.Continue reading: Vegan Gluten free Tahini Oatmeal CookiesThe post Vegan Gluten free Tahini Oatmeal Cookies appeared first on Vegan Richa.
