Sunshine Juice

14 Feb

Today was a pretty gloomy day outside, so I decided to make a juice to bring some light into it! We went to the Root Cellar today and loaded up on fruits and veggies so I had tons of options. I ended up using a whole fresh pineapple, 5 navel oranges, and a thumb of ginger which made a beautiful yellow colour. (Hence the name!)

Ingredients: 

1 whole fresh pineapple

5 navel oranges

1 thumb of ginger

Directions:

Wash all your fruit, then dry well.

Cut both ends off your pineapple. Stand it upright and cut the skin off the sides. Still upright, cut the pineapple in half, then cut each half into strips that will fit easily into your juicer.

For your oranges, cut them the same way as the pineapple, leaving as much white on them as possible, but just cut them into quarters instead of strips.

Put all ingredients through juicer making sure to take your time.

Serve immediately to reap all the nutritious benefits! ūüôā

Tofu Scramble with Spinach & Sun-Ripened Tomatoes

5 Sep

One of my favourite vegan breakfasts, or dinners haha, has got to be tofu scramble! Pretty much all you need is tofu, and whatever vegetables you have in your fridge! I’ve made this for a lot of my friends who aren’t vegan and they have always loved it and wanted more! This recipe should serve 3-4 well, or two¬†extraordinarily¬†hungry people lol!

Ingredients:

1 package extra firm tofu

1 Tbs olive oil

1 small yellow onion, sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup sun-ripened tomatoes, chopped

1 bunch spinach, chopped

1 Tbs soya sauce

1/2 Ts turmeric

salt & pepper to taste

In skillet, sauté  onion, garlic and tomatoes in oil until onions are translucent.

Add spinach and cover with lid until spinach has cooked down.

Reduce heat, crumble in tofu, and mix throughly. Mix in soya sauce, turmeric, salt & pepper. Let cook on low for about 2 minutes.

Plate up and serve with your favourite side dish! Some ideas are toast, hash browns, home fries, steamed vegetables, or some fresh fruit.

Monday Brunch at John’s Place

21 Aug

 

John’s place is one of my favourite places in downtown Victoria to get breakfast. The service is always amazing, and the food has always been delicious! The atmosphere is great, the walls are covered in photos and posters, there’s a jutebox always bumping tunes, and the location is in the heart of downtown.

Will and I went there today and got their vegan breakfast burritos (“The Ragin’ Vegan Burrito”) and homefries and oh my gosh we were in food heaven!

If you live in Victoria, or end up here during travels you should stop in whether you’re vegan or not there’s something for everyone there!

The burritos had so much packed into them I could barely finish half of mine! They have everything from garbanzo beans and baked yams, to¬†saut√©ed peppers and refried beans. If you’re interested in all the ingredients take a look at their menu below:

Chocolate Banana Protein Shake

12 Aug

 

 

This shake is so simple to make, I love it! It’s comes out really creamy and thick because of the frozen banana and the awful chalky taste of the protein powder is almost completely gone in this recipe which is something I always struggle with when it comes to protein powder. Hope you enjoy as much as I did!

1 frozen banana

1 scoop vanilla brown rice protein powder

1 tbs. Cocoa powder (or cacao if you prefer!)

1/2 cup almond milk

Put all ingredients into the blender, blend until smooth and enjoy!
