If you’re looking to reduce your meat and dairy consumption, you’re in the right place. I myself as the most unshakable carnivore wooer, can even fall in love with some vegan meals! I have listed my top 3 favorite vegan/vegetarian recipes.

Vegetable Roll-Ups:
This roll-up should be considered a detox miracle thanks to the nutritional super foods like carrots, chickpeas, curry, red cabbage, peanuts and dark greens. For extra flavor, dip your roll-up into your favorite sauce!
Carrot slivers
Cucumber slivers
Red cabbage
Curry hummus
Cooked rice or quinoa
Collard leaf
Arrange your fillings on the collard leaf such as (carrots, cucumbers, red cabbage, curry hummus, cooked rice/quinoa, peanuts, cilantro).
Tightly, fold one side of the ends inwards and wrap the other side from front to back, trying to keep everything in place.

Homemade Oat Milk:
It’s so easy to make your own homemade oat milk. It has a smooth texture and taste that can be sweetened to your liking with vanilla extract. It can be used a substitute to dairy to use in smoothies, cereal, coffee and tea.
1 cup (90g) Rolled Oats
4 cups (960ml) Water
1/4 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Add all the ingredients to your blender and blend until well blended. About a minute.
Strain through a nut milk bag or
place cheesecloth over a strainer and strain it through that.
Store the milk in the fridge where it will stay fresh for up to 5 days. Shake it well before use.
Use in your tea or coffee or pour over cereal.
