Curry Chickpea and Chilli Lime Tofu Scramble

First of all… I’m sorry. I’ve neglected this page and my creative inspiration. Life has been a little bit busier than lately with a new job position and adjusting to a whole new environment. Been eating a lot of boring salads and rice and beans. I’m not complaining, because I like simple and easy dishes…

Cup for Cup Gluten Free Pancake Flour Blend

Finding the perfect blend of naturally gluten free flours for recipe substitutions can feel like a never ending struggle. From practicing with my dad and using recipes online I kind of found the perfect, for me anyway, blend for light, crispy out on the outside soft and decadent on the inside pancakes!  On my blog…

Carrot Cake Pancakes

I would call these Coconut Carrot Cake Pancakes but I didn’t have any coconut, very sad day here at my house, but alas I have an abundance of coconut oil!      For something so decadent this recipe is very easy, you only need minimal ingredients and only takes about 15-20 minutes.  For these more…

Quinoa and Spaghetti Squash Patties

Some of my favourite things are quinoa and spaghetti squash, so why not put them together into a glorious fried veggie patty?! That’s exactly what we did and there are no regrets. I had some help from dad today who has made quinoa patties and spaghetti squash patties for me in the past so we…

Masala Hummus

One of my favourite hummus flavours is this one, so today I was looking for a snack and was going to settle for regular hummus, but then I remembered that my spice cupboard exists. Low and behold 2 of the 183098 indian spices my parents keep stocked. The Moghul Curry powder is very mild but adds…

a Full Face of Vegan & Cruelty-Free Make Up

When I do my make up everyday I use cruelty free make up, and it’s always a no brainer to me. The main reason is because of the severe animal cruelty, to me there shouldn’t be abuse of animals in the process of creating cosmetic products that I use. I don’t know why you would support a…

Chickpea & Crispy Tofu Buddha Bowl

AKA Whatever’s in your fridge Buddha Bowl. What is a “Buddha Bowl” you ask? I didn’t really know either, they just kept popping up all over my social media pages lookin’ delicious.

4 ingredient, 10 minute gomae recipe

Gomae is traditionally a Japanese side dish, and I think my fellow v/gf pals can relate – side dishes are what we live for. But why let your favourite things remain only in small portions? Another of my favourite things to do is make my favourite side dishes bigger and better, take my favourite aspects…

The best donut place ever. 

One of my favourite things is tricking my friends into eating things that are vegan and gluten free without them noticing. Now that I’ve been this way for more than half a year now I’ve gotten pretty good at it. I took my friend Nekita here for her first time, joined by a seasoned Cartems…

H&M has vegan make up!

I bet you didn’t know that H&M has a brand new beauty line as of earlier this fall/late summer. I bet you also didn’t know that their entire beauty line is cruelty free AND vegan. Not to mention it’s all made in sustainable areas (mostly Europe) and they are coming out with their own organic…

why & how I became vegan and gluten free

I’m going to be honest here, I have always been intolerant to dairy. I didn’t really like the taste or texture of meat. Yes I loved chicken strips and BBQ burgers growing up but those were basically the only things I really enjoyed eating. I’ve grown up with animals and have been raised to respect…
