Vegan Chickpea Tacos with Crunch Mango Slaw & Spicy Red Pepper Sauce

Juice 2-4

This recipe has become my ‘go-to’ recipe for impressing friends (vegan and non-vegan) and a firm Friday night favourite when you’ve got a bit more time to prep. I never used to like chickpeas but I now realise that stems from memories of eating them undercooked which mean hard and crumbly. I have developed a great love for the humble chickpea and it is an excellent healthy option and meat replacement.

Juice 2-5

So lets get down to the nitty gritty.

A Review of My Meat-Free Month

Most of my Instagram followers will know I decided to give up meat for January (Veguary). I have been thinking about whether it is the best thing for me to be eating meat so I decided the best way to find out was to give it a go and see.

10 Minute Veggie Tacos (Gluten-free and Vegan)

IMG_0876.JPG

Just whipped these little babies up- decided to do them meat free as I’m trying to eat a vegetarian diet Monday-Saturday however you are welcome to use meat instead of Quorn but obviously, its gonna take slightly longer than 10 minutes that way.

This meal is super healthy and low-carb (contains no wheat either- YAY!) so you can enjoy these without the guilt! Not that there should be any guilt if it wasn’t healthy, but you know what I mean.

Meat Free Monday: Healthy Eating Meal Plan and Exercise

Hi guys I thought I’d share with you all a typical day of mine.
Let me be clear, this is what I eat on a really good day, (and by good I mean healthy) on a good day I avoid sugary snacks/drinks, processed food and food high in salt or saturated fat. However, I am not a robot- I enjoy treats ALOT. Keeping myself full on healthy food prevents me from giving in to my cravings for bad food (most of the time). I eat healthy food 80% of the time. It’s just as important to indulge now and then as it is to eat well.

Lately I have been trying to cut down on my intake of meat (for lots of reasons but thats for another blog post) so I always try and make Monday (and often Tues, Weds, Thurs) meat free. Here is my meat free, healthy eating meal plan and exercise for the day.
