Happy Monday, friends! Here are last week’s “making vegan easy” tips from my Facebook page. Enjoy your week!
Tip #169: Connect with your past.
Veganize a favorite recipe from your childhood. It will be comforting.
Tip #170: For baking, you can use powdered soy milk to save money.
Just mix the powder with water and voila: soy milk!You can find it at health food stores or online.
Tip #171: Cook to music.
I love being in the kitchen alone, chopping vegetables and listening to my favorite music. It’s very relaxing.
I read about a new vegan dating website the other day. If you’re single, you might want to give a try.
Tip #173: Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
I sprinkle a mixture of chia and hemp seeds on my salads every day. Note: Skip the ground chia and buy the seeds.
Tip #174: Store mushrooms in a paper bag to keep them fresh longer.
I buy them in bulk at the grocery and use a paper bag from the start. If you buy them prepackaged, it’s worth the effort to move the mushrooms to a paper bag once you get home. They will stay fresh two to three times longer!
Tip #175: Summer is a good time to make a meal out of salad.
From VegNews, 11 ways to elevate your salad from an appetizer to a meal.
