Spicy beans on samp

Spicy beans on samp are the ultimate comfort food for me right now. Samp is such a needed item in every South African household. I recently started to use it more often for side dishes to a braai. I even paired it with a tangy tomato sauce to accompany this hearty starchy meal as part of a plant-based dinner or light lunch. What's even more wonderful about this dish is that you can make a huge batch for a big crowd or even for your week meal prep.

Bran buttermilk vegan rusks

Bran buttermilk rusks are simply the perfect addition to my morning routine. They are so tasty, loaded with seeds, jumbo raisins and 100% plant-based. Hard to believe that these sweet dried slices of bread are so good, I made a batch for when the baby has arrived to keep me preoccupied for the couple weeks to come.

What I ate today plant based pregnancy

What I ate today plant-based pregnancy is just a low down on my regular meals these past weeks. Even though it varies day to day, I try to stick to the basics which are plant-based protein, lots of veggies, fats and low GI carbs in every meal. I am craving fruit, smoothies and chopped salads with this pregnancy whereas with my first pregnancy I was craving salty treats like there was no tomorrow.
