10 Highly Healthy And Delicious Vegan Snacks Recipes

10 Highly Healthy And Delicious Vegan Snacks Recipes

There are two misconceptions about Veganism that I’ve been coming across a lot lately. The first is that most meat-eaters presume that vegan food is boring and lacking in flavor. The second is that Vegan diets aren’t that healthy because of all the dodgy meat and dairy substitutes available. Today I’m here to prove that a vegan diet and vegan snacks can not only be 100% healthy, but also god damn delicious.

Breakfast Recipes

1. Tofu Omelette

    Looking at these scrumptious omelettes makes it hard to believe that they’re egg-free. This is why I love tofu; it makes such a fantastic egg substitute (especially scrambled!) for both vegans and people with egg allergies.

    2. Breakfast Bombs

      You don’t have to be nuts to love these breakfast bombs. Sorry, I know that was terrible. The added bonus of these bad boys is that they’re completely raw, which is perfect for those who adhere to a raw-food diet.

      3. Chickpea Flour Pancakes

        I know that ‘healthy’ doesn’t spring to mind when you throw around the word ‘pancakes,’ but in this case they really are. Chickpea flour is much better for you than regular flour and the recipe is completely devoid of refined sugar!

            The title may suggest a lot of work, but this recipe is super easy and quick! Also, it sounds absolutely incredible. Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean that your life has to be devoid of burgers.

            6. Chili with Homemade Sour Cream

            Chili is one of the best comfort foods in existence. It’s also highly versatile; you can throw almost anything in it! That’s what makes it perfect for vegan cooking, because it can be filled primarily with beans and vegetables and be delicious and full of flavor.

            Snacks, Smoothies and Sweets

            7. Chilled Dark Chocolate Pie

              If you weren’t already sold by the title, maybe you will be by the bonus almond crust and vanilla-strawberry compote. Seriously, this looks absolutely to die for. Sure, desserts aren’t ever considered to be ‘healthy,’ but this dish will prove you wrong. Not only is it vegan, but it doesn’t use any refined sugar or plain flour; they’re substituted with healthy and equally tasty ingredients. Just remember to use dairy-free chocolate!

              8. Raw Cacao Green Smoothie

                Who doesn’t love an incredibly healthy smoothie that has just a hint of chocolate?

                  10. Raw Key Lime Mousse with Pomegranate

                    Try Out These 30 New Things To Do Today

                    1. Visit a suburb in your city that you’ve never been to before, or somewhere you haven’t explored much.
                    2. Learn ten phrases in a new language–what about Japanese, Italian or Portuguese?
                    3. Listen to a genre of music you haven’t tried before–perhaps Jazz, Punk or Blues?
                    4. Have a picnic in your local park complete with a packed lunch and your animal friends.
                    5. Start a daily journal to write your thoughts in.
                    6. Try a new cuisine–what about French, Lebanese or Korean?
                    7. Visit your local library and borrow some books for the weekend.
                    8. Plant some flowers in your garden. If you don’t have one, try an indoor potted plant.
                    9. Visit a local museum or art gallery and view their latest exhibition.
                    10. Learn a new skill–what about sewing, gardening or cooking? You’ll be surprised what you can learn in an afternoon.
                    11. Say hello to a neighbor you don’t usually talk to.
                    12. Make a card for a friend and send it to them with a handwritten note.
                    13. Learn how to cook a new dish for dinner. We all get tired of eating the same thing, why not try making something new?
                    14. Re-read an old favorite book. Don’t leave it gathering dust on your book shelf; get it out and read it all over again.
                    15. Research the culture of a different country online–what about India, Guatemala or Sweden?
                    16. Go for a walk or bicycle ride around your neighborhood.
                    17. Watch a classic film like Casablanca, The Godfather or The Wizard of Oz.
                    18. Make a photo album of a recent holiday you took. Don’t let your memories get lost on your computer hard drive; make a special keepsake album of your trip.
                    19. Visit your local farmers markets and pick out some fresh produce. Farmers markets are full of delicious fresh fruit, veggies and more. Find your local market and take a visit.
                    20. Plan a day trip to somewhere outside your city–it might be the seaside, mountains or another city!
                    21. Check out what community events are running in your area and attend one.
                    22. Make a birthday present for a friend. Handmade gifts are personal and much more special than anything you could buy from a store.
                    23. Attend a play at your local theater. Support your local theater and have a fun night out at the same time.
                    24. Volunteer with your local nature conservation society to plant some trees. Conservation societies are always looking for helping hands; do your bit and plant some trees.

                    27. Put on your favorite song and dance your heart out. You might be surprised at how much fun you have!
                    28. Invite some friends over for a BBQ. There’s nothing better than an afternoon spent with good friends and good food.
                    29. Try out a new form of exercise like Pilates, tennis or swimming.
                    30. Organize a clothing swap with your friends. You’ll have a great time, and save some cash and the environment all at the same time!
