↠ BAKED FRUIT
Pit and chop date. Add to a bowl with chopped apples and plus. Squeeze fresh orange or lemon juice on top and sprinkle generously with cinnamon. You can also add a drizzle of maple syrup and/or a sprinkle of sea salt if desired.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until soft and very fragrant. Store leftovers in the fridge for 3-5 days.
NOTE: You can also do this with pears, persimmons, peaches, nectarines…so many options! Serve on oatmeal, vegan yogurt bowls, or on vegan vanilla ice cream with a sprinkle of granola on top 🙂
↠ CUMIN TAHINI SALAD DRESSING
2 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp water
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in a small container with a lid. Cover and shake well until well combined. The dressing will thicken if you let it sit in fridge for a few minutes. Feel free to add more or different seasoning if desired.
My tahini “honey” mustard dressing works well on this salad too! Recipe here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BqbMctTh8bJ/
PODCASTS I’ve been loving this week:
– Show name: Deliciously Ella
Episode: “Lessons in Happiness from Around the World”
Loved hearing very practical approaches to happiness from around the world. Being positive and happy isn’t about being hyper and over the top joyful ALL of the time. It’s about appreciating and enjoying the life you have – the life you actually have. Loved this episode 🙂
– Show name:Oprah’s Master Class
Episode: “Oprah Winfrey part 1 + 2”
I’ve listened to this many times and even that is redundant because I’ve also watched this episode when it was a TV show a few years ago. So many little gems of awesome in this episode. Very inspiring!
– Show name: Talking Tastebuds
Episode: “VEGANUARY SPECIAL (LIVE) with Kim-Julie Hansen + Gaz Oakley”
LOVED this episode. Especially the end when they started talking about how to deal with “imperfect” vegans. Very cool perspective from three incredible activists within the vegan movement 🙂
– Show name: Food for Thought
Episode: “Are Avocados Vegan?”
LOVED THIS ONE TOO! Especially towards the end. Such a refreshing perspective about the importance of taking the pressure off of people to be perfect – thereby creating a huge barrier to entry and ultimately fewer vegans in the world. If we want to change the world, we have to be practical and meet ourselves and each other where we’re at with compassion and love.
Hope you enjoy these podcasts! Let me know what you’ve been listening to in the comments 🙂
Love you guys!
