Happy Happy Friday! Yay =) Less than 2 weeks left to Vegan MoFo – I’m hoping we can set a new record with recipe submissions!
New to HVF? Check out all of the info right here.
Before we get started on all of the wonderful recipes, let’s look at today’s theme of the day.
18 Honor a human or non human animal who inspires your veganism.
I’ll be honest, I went vegan for health reasons to start with. I recently had my 5-year veganversary and I realised that health is still my primary reason, but environmental impacts and animal rights follow suit now too.
How cute his this vegan meme? And I never really thought about it that way, but it’s true. So although she wasn’t really in danger of being made into something edible, I still dedicate this post to my intelligent, loving animal =)
I love her to pieces and can’t imagine my life without her. I was going through a very rough time when I got her, she pulled me out of a dark place. She’s my constant, my best friend and partner in crime. So in honour of my pup Sunny who just inspires me to be a better human in general, I will spam you with pictures of her.
Who inspires you?
Let’s check out last week’s highlights!
Thai Quinoa Salad from The Taste Space:
This is a super refreshing sounding salad! I haven’t had much luck cooking rice in coconut milk, but maybe it won’t be mushy if I try quinoa. The lime sounds great and the nooch is always welcome in a good salad =)
Chocolate Chip Pancakes from Sandi’s Allergy Free Recipes:
I’m sure I’ve mentioned my epic pancake fails before. It happens every 3 months or so. Just enough time passes that I forget how much I suck at making pancakes and want to try again. And guess what? It’s about that time again ;p Maybe I’ll have luck with these. I love that they are gluten-free. I have a hard enough time making pancakes let alone trying to convert to gf. And these are kiddo approved! Sandi’s 3 grandkids helped make these awesome-sauce pancakes and they loved them =)
Pumpkin Pie Snack Bites from Strength & Sunshine:
I think another name for these could be Fall Balls! So cute and they pack in all the goodness of the upcoming season. A perfect on-the-go bite-sized snack! I tend to make only chocolate snack balls – these are nice change =)
This week, I’m sharing my Refried Bean Bowl:
This is the second last HVF during MoFo – I would love to see it get bigger and better these last two Fridays. So link up, share your recipes & get your friends to share up, too!
