Vegan Proats:



Make a protein shake using 40g of powder (vanilla soy protein isolate is best).

Cook 100g (dry measured) of either rolled oats or rolled 5 grains in water until the texture is creamy.

Stir in 1 tsp of cinnamon while in the pot, and then serve in a large bowl.

slice a banana over the top then sprinkle tbsp's of golden flaxmeal over.

Lastly pour the protein shake on top and drizzle with sugarfree syrup, agave syrup or 'real' maple syrup.

My favorite meal of the new year has to be the meal my five year old children (boy-girl twins) helped me make on New Year's Day. It was a "stew" with black eyed peas, carrots, celery, onions, bell peppers, garlic, and spices. I served it over brown rice and sauteed kale. I gave it a smokey flavor, and was kind of going for the traditional southern US new year's meal (Dad's from North Carolina) but without the pork of course. OK honestly I did most of the prep work and cooking, but I always let my kids throw veggies into the pan to cook, they love to help.

My favourite meal is undoubtedly the thrive diet pizza,it feels like cheating because you can change the base and topping so much and it still tastes amazing! We have it for both my husbands and my birthdays and our anniversarys (meeting and wedding). My favourite base combinations is quinoa and kidney beans and my favourite topping is onion,sweet potato,courgettes out the garden,olives and peppers with the "cheese" sauce on top. It really is amazing. We usually have it with a big mixed salad for one hell of a nutritious and beyond tasty meal. On special occasions we have it with home made gluten free carrot cupcakes to follow.
