These protein pancakes are fluffy, vegan-friendly, and definitely a staple recipe to have handy and so great as a snack a few hours before a workout or shortly after one. These pancakes, however, are not low in carbs, but carbohydrates really are one of the body’s preferred sources of energy so it’s highly beneficial to eat the majority of your carbs around the most active part of your day to make the most of them.
One of the most important things for me after going Vegan was to ensure I wasn't missing out on anything. Snickers were absolutely one of those things, so of course, I had to find a way to make a dairy-free version. I chose the most natural ingredients I could find to mimic the flavours of a Snickers bar, and they unintentionally turned out gluten-free, so it just keeps getting better!
I absolutely love making protein balls (otherwise known as bliss balls), but I have to say, these are next level. They are so 'next level' I needed to find another word to describe them as they are rich in flavour, but not too sweet, they packed full of protein and nutrition, but taste so decadent. The closest food I could think of to best describe them were... truffles. Chocolate, Vegan, Raw, Protein Truffles.
Okay, maybe hot isn't the best way to describe it, it's usually pretty cold BUT Celery, and especially Celery juice, are becoming more and more popular in online health and nutrition communities. This plant has been very underrated, and I'm so happy to see it now getting the praise it deserves. You may have heard of the Medical Medium, you may have also heard of his Celery juice cleanse, you may have heard of neither, that's cool, I'm here to share with you why you need to know more about this magical herbaceous plant.
Soy has been a point of concern for many people, especially those transitioning to a vegan/plant-based diet. Men seem to be worried about feminising effects such as "man boobs", and women's concerns mostly lay in the danger of excess estrogen within the body.
To put it simply, persistent stress from anxiety makes it more likely for people to form unhealthy daily habits, which can then have a direct effect on your body’s hormonal balance. This, in turn, can completely slow your metabolism, thus - weight gain!
