Hello Lovelies! And Happy Halloween!! Welcome to this Spooktacular edition of Healthy Vegan Friday =D I know, I know. Halloween is next Friday, but last week I requested your scary-themed recipes so we have them in time to make for the big day.
Don’t worry – you can still submit your delicious recipes even if they aren’t themed (we can pretend!). If you are new to HVF, check out the info here.
And to get you all revved up – we’re having a giveaway!! Check out the review I did earlier this week on Luminance Skincare. Not only is this skincare line clean & green, but it’s vegan. I love it! It’s the bomb =) Two lucky readers will walk away with some awesome stuff. 1st prize will get a small gift set of skincare goodies. 2nd prize will receive a box of their amazing soap. This contest is open to U.S. and Canada. To enter, just leave a comment asking Luminance a question about their line. When the winners are announced next Friday, the questions will be answered. Contest closes Wednesday, October 29th, 2014. AND! Luminance has graciously offered to give a 20% discount for online orders to all of our readers if you use the code ROCKMYVEGANSOCKS until next Friday, October 31, 2014. How cool is that?!
Before you astound Robin and I with your recipes this week, let’s check out your favs from last week.
Quick Mexican Quinoa Salad from Vegans Eat Yummy Foods Too:
How come my parents never packed me lunches like this? Yum! Good thing I can just make it myself and pack as an adult 😉 Love this protein powerhouse of a salad!
Cali-Coco BLT Quinoa Salad from The Taste Space:
My salads have become boring – this is exactly what I need to change it up. Smoked tofu? Yes, please! Janet even tracked down some unsweetened coconut chips to make her “bacon” with. Awesome salad.
Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie from Gluten-Free A-Z blog:
I’ll admit that I normally can’t be bothered with making pie. It’s normally full of gluten (which makes it taste good!) and is super time consuming. This pie is super simple to make though and it’s gluten free. Win, win!
This week… I didn’t quite get my act together and make the Hallowe’en recipe I have in mind (it’s coming, I promise!), so I will go back in time and share these from last year:
If these guys are a little too decadent for your already-sweetened tooth this year, there are some healthy options in the post too.
Alright, link up friends! And have a great weekend =)
