6 Healthy & Easy Vegan Recipes

6 Healthy and Easy Vegan Recipes

A couple of months ago, I attended a 5 week course at the Facebook UK offices.. a variety of different influencers were invited to attend and we all had different ideas and skills to bring to the table. One thing I have been wanting to do for a while as a family, is introduce more healthy eating. We, as a family, are a VERY long way from becoming vegetarians, let alone vegans, however, I do feel that we should be reducing the amount of animal products we consume. One step at a time, right? At the same time, this also opens the discussion with the children and ensures that we consume more consciously and eventually more thoughtfully.

I meat the wonderful Nest & Glow at this event. The author behind this has a great set of Vegan recipe resources – that are perfect for the family. A great place to start. Here are some of his favourites!

 

Even if you aren’t vegan its worth having some dairy and meat-free meals for both the health of the planet and your family. All of these vegan recipes are free of gluten, flour, butter, refined sugar and are loaded with vitamins and minerals.
