Healthy Vegan Friday #134

Happy Happy Friday! I had to have my eyes dilated earlier this week and thought you might get a kick out of my alien-like eyeballs haha.

Anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend? I’m in Canada taking care of my momma as she had her knee replaced earlier this week. The next couple of weeks will be low key for me while I take care of her. I am however excited that Sarina is making the trek to my mom’s house to visit me. YAY!

Never heard of Healthy Vegan Fridays before? It’s an amazing weekly linkup for bloggers to share their delicious and healthy vegan food. This linkup is not restricted to recipes though – feel free to share your posts on exercise & fitness, plant-based health & wellness,  and/or vegan travel, restaurant and cookbook reviews.

Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry! You can come and see what others have shared and find some tasty food to try!

Let’s check out some of our favs from last week.

Crockpot Lentil Soup from Running in a Skirt:

It is COLD here on the east coast. I’m totally looking to make warm, comforting recipes like this. And as my mom’s kitchen is lacking a bit in fancy tools like my kitchen at home, I’m loving this easy crockpot recipe.

Cape Breton Molasses Cookies from Woman in Real Life:

I never used to be a fan of molasses, or so I thought. I was wrong, the stuff is actually really awesome and has a ton of health benefits. These cute cookies also remind me that Cape Breton in Canada is on my to-see list – it sounds breathtakingly beautiful. What a fun, vegan twist with this traditional cookie.

Black Eyed Pea and Barley Soup from Fueled by Carrots:

This warming soup sounds perfect right about now. I like this spin on a New Year’s Day tradition to usher good luck into the year. It’s jam packed with veggies & flavours and sure to make your tastebuds and belly happy.

Singaporean Pineapple Tarts from Sprinkle of Vanilla Sugar:

I will admit to being a huge chocolate lover. So much so, that I typically turn my nose up at all other desserts. But these goldeny delicious tarts sound simply amazing. Mia & Zoe even made their own vegan egg wash for them!

This week, Mary Ellen is sharing her Tofu Scramble:

I love a good tofu scramble. And let’s be honest – she had me at mushrooms. It seems like Mary Ellen loves them just as much as I do haha. I like the idea using veggie broth instead of more oil. This would add to the flavour too! Delicious!

And I’m sharing my Chocolate Coconut Swirl Cups:

I triple love these little cups. They are pretty AND delicious =D

  1. that is a pretty funny photo of your eyes (and your expression) – good luck with looking after your mum – hope it goes smoothly – my dad had his knee done but it healed quickly but it took him longer to recover from the psychological effects of the anaesthetic

    1. My expression perfectly sums up my feelings about the situation. I couldn’t see a darned thing! And would you believe it took two days for it to go away???
      Things are going well with mom – she’s recovering nicely =)
      I’m sorry to hear about your dad, I’ve had a nasty experience with anesthetic before too :( They actually talked my mom into a spinal tap instead of anesthetic, which I thought sounded weird, but it seemed to work better as she has also had bad experiences from anesthetic in the past.
