Thai Salad with Marinated Tempeh

"This huge salad was my post workout lunch today. It’s full of leafy greens, veggies, some fruit, topped with peanut sauce marinated tempeh, and dressed with the slightest drizzle of sesame oil and rice vinegar. Totally yummy and fantastically filling!"

Lunchtime Trio

"A trio of toasted breads with different toppings: one with lightly grilled vegan cheddar, second one with mashed avocado with a pinch of salt and tomato and the third one with sunflower butter. Accompanied by a salad of sliced cooked beetroot and rocket. Peppermint tea brewed with a couple of slices of apple is assisting me in digesting the spread."

Healthy Peanut Butter Freezer Cookies

Here is one of Charissa's favorite good-for-you cookie recipes, Healthy Peanut Butter Freezer Cookies, from her blog Colourful Palate.

You could try making this recipe vegan by substituting agave for the honey. I also imagine you could substitute other nut or seed butters for the peanut butter.

Kale Obsession!

Lindsey writes, "I could eat this a thousand times a day! Kale, crimini mushrooms and pine nuts sauteed in a little bit of gyoza sauce. I'm a recovering addict and gained 60lbs when I stopped using. I'm rebuilding my diet with an emphasis on whole foods. I'm absolutely loving learning how to properly take care of myself for the first time in my life, kale being my new obsession."

Rice and Beans Plate

"My name is Sarah and I am a gluten-free vegan. I have two blogs: VaVaVegan, which is my daily blog, and This Is What I Eat, which is a photo journal of delicious vegan food that I eat and make for others. Recently I've been really focusing on living a whole foods-based lifestyle, enjoying clean, nutritious foods that fuel me for whatever activities I'm doing (which include running, training with my trainer and even just working long days on my feet). I want to show people that vegan food is not only delicious, but can provide a well-balanced and nutrition-packed diet.

"The photo I wanted to submit is a Rice and Beans plate I've been enjoying regularly lately. It is 1/2 cup cooked rice, 1/2 cup cooked kidney beans, a handful of spinach, a handful of steamed broccoli topped with a half of an avocado. It looks beautiful and tastes as good as it looks!"
