I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend 🙂 After traveling for the last week, I honestly couldn’t have been more excited to get back into the kitchen creating recipes for you! I was in Miami on set with Omstars >> we partnered up to create a brand new wellness video series, “10 Steps to A Sweet Simple Vegan Life”, that will be launching late 2017/early 2018 on their platform! I shared my top 10 tips to those wishing to improve their health, making this a guide that I wish I had when I first went vegan. I poured my heart into this, and I am still so shocked that it even happened, and I will update you when it’s live! It was such an amazing opportunity and experience, and it was definitely nerve wrecking (I stuttered/jumbled up my words about a million times ?) but I figured it out in the end and I learned so much. If you have the chance to check out Omstars I would highly recommend it! It is basically a “netflix for yogis” as they say, and they share a wide variety of yoga courses, educational courses and wellness series with guest teachers just like the one I filmed! You can use “SWEETSIMPLEVEGAN” for 30 days free 🙂

And back to today’s recipe– we actually are sharing FOUR in one, check out the video above for the tutorials + see all of the printable recipes below! Chris and I put together four no-cook meal ideas that are perfect for those who don’t have access to a kitchen (throwing it back to my college years in a dorm), or even just for those who are not in the mood to cook!
