Healthy Ten Minute Vegan Recipes

Watch the video above to get the EASY vegan meals!

Happy New Year, people! I know you hear this all the time but WHERE IS THE TIME GOING?! It’s insane how fast time goes by, you feel me? Honestly don’t even know where 2018 went!¬†

It is crazy though when I think about some of the things that happened this year. One of the main things that I accomplished was opening up a vegan cafe. This time last year, I was working super extra hard to get everything launched! So if I think about the cafe and how it all happened only a year ago, it seems that time didn’t go by fast. Isn’t the concept of time strange?¬†

Anyway, today I’m showing you guys three different recipes that are perfect for those busy and lazy days. These are extremely easy and require very little skill in the kitchen – sound familiar? Yup, pretty much 90% of the recipes you will find here like this (lol).¬†

Vegan Cold Soba Noodle Salad

These recipes are to show you guys that eating healthy and delicious vegan meals does not have to be timely or costly! It’s so easy and if you are embarking on a vegan journey for the first time, please give these a go.¬†

I always like to make sure that the meals I eat or show you guys contain a healthy grain, a plant-based protein source and some veggies. Believe it or not, it’s not hard to get all that on a plant-based meal.¬†
