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!"

Butternut Squash Lasagna

Butternut Squash Lasagna -- a healthy "lasagna" made from layers of butternut squash! This dish was inspired by a recipe my sister-in-law sent me from her local newspaper. I made it nutritarian and vegan by leaving out the oil, salt, and cheese.
