Woke up this morning craving an authentic curry.
appalam pattani kurma aka peas papad curry. recipe in the comments.
indian food has a plethora of curries and each one uniquely special. this is an easy and simple south indian style green peas curry with papad.
this spicy dry green peas curry is made with sprouted dry green peas (a staple in indian kitchens), onion, tomatoes, spices and papad. a vegan, soy-free, nut-free, gluten-free recipe.
sadly, i forgot to soak the green peas, so my craving soul has to wait till tomorrow:). but, a recipe is on the comment section for all of you.
⚠️disclaimer 1: it always depends where you live. for example, here are tropical fruits expensive but if you live in a tropical country then they are probably cheap.
⚠️disclaimer 2: yes, whole plant foods are mostly the cheapest like potatoes, rice, beans, lentils, bananas etc. but all plant-based products have their place and all the animal product substitutes like vegan meat and cheese are great for people who want to transition and they also get less and less expensive over time because demand is increasing rapidly 🚀👌🏼
🙌🏼so it’s totally up to you! you can make your vegan lifestyle dirt cheap or really expensive. mine is “normal” because i eat mostly cheap, healthy whole foods but i also eat a lot and buy some “superfoods” like h**p seeds and cashew butter which are more expensive.
🙄saying “vegan is expensive” is a stereotype which is not true. you can mostly make any diet cheap or expensive depending on what you eat and how much you eat. and if you eat whole plant foods then you are choosing one of the cheapest diets and at the same time the healthiest, most sustainable and most ethical diet so let’s rock this vegan lifestyle and eat what grows and didn’t have a face or a mother 💚

Savory waffles for brunch sound about right 👌🏻🥰 it’s the perfect combo for those of us who love waffles but eat breakfast around lunchtime on the weekends! my go to toppings: hummus, greens, avo and a poached egg 😋
and if you’re not into savory, you could totally just make these zucchini waffles and top it with some coconut yogurt and maple syrup 💃🏻💯 what are you having for breakfast today?
hope you’re having an awesome saturday so far! (recipe link in bio)

the different types of milk & their benefits! which is your favourite?
whole milk is cow's milk with none of the f*t removed. one cup contains about: 150 cal (12 g carbs in the form of lactose (milk sugar), 8g of fat, 8g of protein. none of the milk's natural components are removed.
pros: whole milk provides us with essential proteins, extra calories from fats, as well as vitamins and minerals. whole milk is easily accessible anywhere.
cons: the versions that aren’t fat-free are higher in saturated fats and calories. the protein in cow’s milk can be a common allergen for babies & adults. whole milk isn’t suitable for people who are lactose intolerant or dairy sensitive.
soy milk is made from soybeans and filtered water. like other plant-based milk, it has thickeners to improve consistency and shelf life.one cup of unsweetened soy milk: 80-100 calories (4g of carbs, 4g of fat, 7g of protein.)
pros: since it comes from plants, soy milk is naturally free of cholesterol & low in saturated f*t with no lactose. it has same amount of protein as cow’s milk yet lower in calories. good source of vitamin a, vitamin b-12 & potassium.
cons: soy is a common allergen for both adults and children. too much soy may be a problem for people with thyroid and other fertility conditions. most of the soy produced in north america comes from genetically modified plants, which is a concern to some.
almond milk is made from ground almonds & filtered water. it contains thickeners to improve its consistency and shelf life.unsweetened almond milk is the lowest in calories. per cup, unsweetened almond milk has 30-60 cal (1g of carbs, 3g of fat, 1g of protein.
pros: it’s incredibly low in calories and contains no saturated fat. it’s a good source of vitamin a and can be fortified to be a good source of calcium and vitamin d. it’s naturally lactose-free, great for those with sensitivity to dairy.
cons: even though almonds are a good source of protein, almond milk is not a great source of calcium. but many brands supplement with calcium & vitamin d.
Good morning and happy saturday! i’ve really been getting into using nuts more in my meals. so far i’ve only been using cashews and almonds. i heard some people also roast them and then put them in their meals. definitely need to try that as well!
i also got some pomegranate the other day that were on sale and i’m excited to use that as well. pomegranate in salads= wow 👌🏼😍

Taco bout a great way to kick off the weekend! 💃💕
happy saturday! i slept in, did a sweaty workout (see my stories for the details), and then put together these loaded sweet + savory tacos to enjoy with my coffee while i do some journaling ✨ slow weekend mornings are just the best ❤️
although these were a bit difficult to eat, they were so worth the mess 😎 loading them to the max is the only way to do it, right?
i’ve got a few errands and tasks to get done before i head into work for the rest of the day, but i hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing weekend! 😘
