5 FOODS EVERY VEGAN MUST HAVE IN THEIR DIET

A vegan diet is packed with nutrition and offers you not only peace of mind but great health too. However, if your vegan diet is not planned, like any other diet, you may be prone to deficiencies. For vegans who want to stay healthy, consuming a nutrient-rich diet is very important. Here are 5 foods that must be part of every vegan diet to ensure you are getting optimum nutrition and are enjoying a lifestyle of abundance! 1. FRUITS AND VEGETABLES Vegetables, especially leafy greens, are packed with vitamins and minerals, keep your calories in check and offer a lot of health benefits – other than good skin and healthier body. For example, veggies like celery and carrots are known to naturally whiten your teeth by acting as natural stain removers. These foods increase saliva production, which serves as the mouth's self-cleaning agent. If you have discolored teeth, teeth whitening will help, but you have to remember that a lot of cleaning your teeth is about stimulating

Healthy & Yummy Banana & Cacao Nibs Smoothie Bowl For Breakfast That Tastes Like Dessert

A delicious smoothie bowl that's packed with nutrients, is rich and creamy and tastes as decadent as a dessert. A perfect meal to start the day. I love smoothie bowls, as they are not only delicious and simple to put together, but with the right combination of toppings, it can be a nutrition powerhouse that everyone will enjoy. This Banana and Cacao Nibs Smoothie has become one of my favorites. Its made with organic frozen bananas, peaches, and berries. The added antioxidant-rich cacao nibs give this smoothie the taste of a chocolatey treat. I love playing around with various toppings with this smoothie, but the toppings I've used in this recipe are my favorite so far. Bananas are high in potassium and are a rich source of protein, calcium, vitamin B6, and dietary fiber. They have zero fat and cholesterol. Bananas make the best base for a creamy smoothie and make it naturally sweet without any added sugar or natural sweeteners. Make sure you use frozen bananas for the

Your Guide to Vegan Ramadan in Dubai

Your Guide to Vegan Ramadan in Dubai

At sundown on the first Sunday of the month, the Muslim holy period of Ramadan kicked off and will continue until the evening of 4th June. Well-known for the fasting period, Ramadan is one of the holiest months for Muslims that commemorates the first revelation of the Qur’an to Muhammad according to Islamic history. The term Ramadan literally translates to scorching in Arabic. The idea behind 'fasting' is to emphasize on self-sacrifice and use the experience of hunger to grow in empathy with the hungry. Observing Muslims abstain from all food and even water from the crack of dawn until sunset, every day of this month. Not just this, Muslim communities around the world work together to raise money for the poor, donate clothes and food, and hold iftar dinners for the less fortunate for the complete period of Ramadan. It is a month of giving, peace and introspection. Many Muslims across the world have started observing peace on their plate by shunning animal foods from their d

Upma Style Healthy Quinoa Recipe - High Protein Vegan Recipe For Dinner or Breakfast

Upma Style Healthy Quinoa Recipe - High Protein Vegan Recipe For Dinner or Breakfast

Upma-style quinoa is a delicious and nutritious twist to the classic upma that can be eaten hot (as I like it) or cold and is perfect for breakfast or a light (early) dinner. While I love my quinoa salads , a change is always good. In case you didn't know, upma is a South Indian recipe made with semolina and spices, sometimes perked up with veggies. Some of the best quinoa recipes are cold, but when it comes to dinner I prefer a hot meal that's light yet filling and, of course, nutritious. So when I need something easy and nutritious for dinner, this is my go-to recipe. Quinoa is a nutrition powerhouse, its gluten-free and low in calories. It is a complete protein containing all 9 amino acids (a great vegan protein source), high in fiber, and also iron. This simple quinoa recipe (I call it quinoa upma) is my go-to for dinner and sometimes breakfast. What I like the most is it requires minimum chopping and prep time. Its ready in no time and is yet incredibly healthy a

Creamy and Delicious Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl For Breakfast

Creamy and Delicious Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl For Breakfast

Sometimes you need a breakfast that doesn't only taste good and is packed with nutrition but also looks beautiful. A bright colorful Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl completely meets the job description and is the perfect quick-and-easy breakfast. I was lucky to find pink dragon fruit at the supermarket and I had to get it for making my own delicious pitaya smoothie bowl. Lots of Pitaya Smoothie Bowl recipes on the internet use the frozen pink dragon fruit, but I don't use any packaged frozen fruits or veggies ever. If I am planning a creamy smoothie bowl in the morning, I freeze fresh fruit overnight. My recommendation for preparing your smoothies is to only use fresh and seasonal fruits. They are the best kind and deliver the most nutrition and health benefits! Dragon fruit on its own doesn't have any flavor or taste but it is packed with vitamins (high in Vitamin C), minerals and is high in protein. It also gives a gorgeous pink hue to the smoothie. A delicious flavorf

Mediterranean Style Vegan Quinoa Salad

Mediterranean Style Vegan Quinoa Salad

 A good quinoa salad is one of my go-to meals and I often experiment with different variations to have this superfood (if you didn't know quinoa is a nutrition powerhouse and super rich in protein too). I've fallen in love with quinoa for its versatility and simplicity. Just recently I tried quinoa salad with a Mediterranean twist and was totally surprised how well it turned out. The olives and tahini sauce give the salad a new dimension and flavor ... the combination with basic veggies turns it into a simply amazing wholesome meal. What I like most about a good quinoa salad is that not only does it not take long to get ready, but that it is also quite filling too.

This has become my go-to smoothie as I am trying to eat healthily, shed some weight and also need to do something about my hair (it's thinning and the hair fall is bad). It's also a great smoothie for those times when we are deprived of raw green food and need a lot of nutrition with minimum fuss. It has detoxifying benefits (excellent after travel fix) and perfect  when we need to balance an earlier indulgent meal. This smoothie is alkalizing, hydrating, helps in cleansing, aids in weight-loss, antioxidant-rich and easy to digest - all this with minimal prep time.
