So I’ve been seeing tonssss of Thanksgiving recipes posted lately + I figured I would make one myself to share here. I don’t really like cream of spinach and I’m not a huge fan of brussel sprouts either, but of course I still want to get my greens in (among the turkey, stuffing, cranberries, wine, etc etc). If you’re like me, then this side dish is for you.
Here it is: roasted collard greens with shredded coconut + nutritional yeast. Boom. 💥
>> Preheat the oven to 325
>> Use a parchment lined pan and lay out ripped pieces of collard greens (can use kale instead)
>> Make the pieces any size you want
>> Drizzle with EVOO and a little sea salt
>> Roast for 8-10 minutes, until crispy
>> Sprinkle on shredded coconut + nutritional yeast
>> Roast for 2 more minutes
>> Top with pumpkin seeds and enjoy!
Posted this on my snap last night and didn’t even think about posting it here! This Vegan Mac and Cheese is super delicious and super easy to make 💕
1️⃣ Melt Two Tablespoons of butter in a pot over Medium heat
2️⃣ Add One Tablespoon of flour, some salt and pepper and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and stir til combined
3️⃣Slowly add in One cup of milk substitute (I use coconut milk) whisking as you pour, whisk for 3-5 minutes whisking until thickened
4️⃣Add 1/2 cup of Nutritional Yeast and whisk until combined
5️⃣Add two cups of cooked pasta of your liking
6️⃣ I like stirring ng I’m extra vegan butter afterwards but that’s just me 🤷♀️
The kids are loving some yeast flakes sprinkled on their vegetables tonight!
My 3 year old even demolished her broccoli, which is rare 🥦
Nutritional yeast is a source of complete protein, fibre and B vitamins and can easily be added to a variety of foods.
I love the taste of this stuff, and it can make a good alternative to cheese if vegan/dairy free (or like me, you just like to keep things diverse and experiment with different flavours). If you decide to try it, let me know what you think!
I Haven’t had scrambled eggs in such a long time! I’ve been craving savory foods for breakfast lately which is weird because I was a a huge sweet kick for the last couple months.
—> scrambled my eggs with just salt and pepper and added mushrooms into it and topped it with nutritional yeast!! (The secret to eating dairy free because it literally tastes like cheddar cheese 🧀)
—> on the side I have a piece of @foodforlifebaking Ezekiel bread topped with avocado 🥑 , goat cheese (only cheese I can eat that doesn’t hurt my stomach) —> then some berries on the side:)) 🍓🍓

Those two words sound great for the most people. CHEAT DAY! Today we talk about those days.
Those are days where you can freely eat the foods you shouldn't. Often, those cheat days, can become cheat weeks, which can completely 'fuck up' your nutrition.
Basically, it helps you to have one free day to eat whatever you want. 'Cheat days' is a debatable topic, some people will agree, and some won't. I do have a cheat day, BUT not every week.
We all have those crisis moments for eating. Those days help me satisfy myself, but only for one day. After that, you should always get back on track with your nutrition.
Again, like I said, it is very debatable topic, with some ups and downs. It won't cause you problems with gaining weight, but it can be a problem in finding healthy lifelong habits.
Eat moderately, and 'don't eat for 2 weeks' on the cheat days. Happy cheating!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again... (because I LOVE PASTA but also because most Instagram pages are not a fair representation of reality and anyone saying they survive on smoothie bowls and salads is either lying or living a very undelicious life - yes I made up a new word). Cutting out entire food groups e.g. carbs, is not healthy.
Something I hear a lot: “but isn’t pasta bad for you?” Not if...
- you don’t eat it every day
- you cover it with good stuff (e.g. as pictured: tomatoes, leek, kale, extra virgin olive oil, nutritional yeast, sea salt, chilli)
- you do enough exercise to burn off the energy
- it makes you feel good
- if you aren’t gluten intolerant... but if you are, just get a gluten free version (I’m not gluten intolerant but this is yummy brown rice spaghetti - it’s good to mix it up)
Mmmm, kale chips fresh from the oven. I was not a huge fan of cooked kale until I found a recipe for kale chips. These chips are high in the antioxidants vitamin K, A, & C. I toss them in walnut or avocado oil and give it a good massage (yes, give your kale a rub to break the cell structure down and make it more tender). Season with salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, & nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast provides lots of B vitamins that are great for #vegan and #vegetarian diets. Spread on parchment paper so the leaves barely touch. Bake in the oven at 350*F for 10 minutes. #yumyum 😋 Served with grilled salmon and antioxidant quinoa. What did you have for dinner? So nice, I'm posting this twice! #kale#dinner#leafygreens#eatyourveggies#nutritionalyeast#baked#whatsonyourplate#registereddietitian#dietitianseattoo#vitamink#kalemassage
