Hi there and happy Friday to you! Many people are celebrating religious holidays this week and weekend. I came across this great article about why having an egg-free holiday is the compassionate choice; I would love to hear your thoughts on it. The article can be found here.
Healthy Vegan Friday:
As you probably know already, I co-host a very cool exchange called Healthy Vegan Fridays where bloggers post their whole food, plant-based recipes or informational posts each week, and readers select their favorites based on the number of clicks. Then, on Fridays, we post the winners, plus a few personal favorites.
Last week’s top submissions were these:
1. Vegan on a Budget from Chastity @ My Healthy Chef:
2. Homemade Oil-Free Potato Chips from Erin @ Sift, Stir & Savour:
3. Candida and Quinoa- Is it Safe to Eat? from Sandra @ Candida Diet Plan:
My Favorite Submissions:
1. Best Decadent Easter-Themed Treat – Raw Superfood Chocolate Easter Eggs from Peaches and Greens:
2. Best Nutritarian-Friendly Meal – Adzuki Beans with Winter Squash from Lindsay Loves Veggies:
3. Best Quick & Easy Dish – “Cream” Pasta from crispyshipley:
There were so many fantastic recipe submissions, you can check them all out on this post. And, be sure to add your recipe using the link at the end of this post to be considered for next week’s round-up.
Kale Parmesan Leftovers & Vegan Delish:
So remember the Kale Parmesan recipe I wrote about on Wednesday using shirataki noodles? I served the leftovers yesterday with some garbanzo beans thrown in:
I re-heated it on the stovetop and it was a delicious lunch yesterday, topped with chopped red onion. I’ve added this recipe to Vegan Delish, my recipe app for iPhones and iPads, you can find it in the “New Recipes” category titled Parmesan Noodles & Kale. Here’s the screenshot from the iPad version:
Vegan Delish has gotten so many fantastic, new reviews lately and has broken the top 50 paid Food & Drink apps again on the App Store (#34!). Thank you for this incredible support! Just to let you know, the way you can leave a review on iTunes for the rest of the world to see is to follow these steps:
1. Go to the App Store or iTunes on your computer, iPhone, or iPad.
2. Search for Vegan Delish.
3. Click on the tab for Ratings and Reviews, and then hit “Write a Review.”
Note: if you downloaded the app using a promo code, Apple won’t let you leave a review. But, you can still support me by telling your friends and family about it. 🙂
I want to continue writing my blog for as long as possible, and each download or referral of Vegan Delish helps.
I wanted to let you know that due to some school and personal obligations next week, I will be blogging next on Tuesday, instead of Monday. I am nearly complete with phase one of my MPH final project and I need to spend a little extra time with it. Also, my cat Xena will have having some dental work on Monday so please send her healing thoughts (this kitty mom is very worried about the procedure and hoping it all goes well). Until then, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to enter my Mountain Rose Herb giveaway that includes some herbal coffee, amla powder, and a natural aroma spray. I’ll be picking a winner next week!
