Dinner by @butterflyinvasion last night was πŸ’― Pad Thai from the @thugkitchen cookbook, topped with peanuts and scallions, plus pea shoots on the side for that planty garnish πŸ‘Œ Always a nice treat when other people cook vegan things for me πŸ€— #vegan #plantbased #plantstrong #plantpower #veganism #thugkitchen #veganfood #veganeats #instafood #foodstagram #padthai #homemade #tofu #protein #dairyfree #crueltyfree #loveanimalseatplants #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #yum #vegansofig #healthy #wholefoods #veganfoodshare #realfood #vegancommunity #whatveganseat #vegansofinstagram #veganlife #wholefoodsplantbased #fueledbyplants

Looking through my kitchen recently, I realized I had three separate bags of dried coconut - two open bags and one unopened. Since I'm trying to cull down my supplies before moving, I figured may as well consolidate the three bags into just one jar by turning it all into coconut butter! Toasted coconut butter, to be exact. (Inspired by @eatingevolved.) It's amazing how much it decreases in volume from the amount of coconut I started with, but I did still get quite a bit of coconut butter out of this deal πŸ‘Œ Now I've got a whole bunch of this sweet coconutty goodness to help fuel my packing soon πŸ˜‹ (Once I stop procrastinating by doing things like making coconut butter...) #vegan #plantbased #plantstrong #plantpower #homemade #healthy #healthyfats #veganfood #vegansofig #veganeats #instafood #foodstagram #wholefoods #realfood #dairyfree #crueltyfree #loveanimalseatplants #coconut #coconutbutter #yum #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #veganism #veganlife #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #fueledbyplants #wholefoodsplantbased #vegansofinstagram #veganfortheanimals #healthyvegan

My genius impromptu lunch from yesterday. Spicy peanut and Thai red curry cauliflower fried rice 🍚 This helped me in my pre-moving quest to clean out a bunch of stuff from my fridge, freezer, and pantry πŸ™Œ Frozen cauliflower rice blend (swipe to see the one I used - though I honestly don't remember when or why I bought it πŸ˜‚), the end of a bag of frozen green beans, the last of my frozen zucchini, plus some peanut butter and Thai red curry paste from the fridge, and liquid aminos from the pantry. I stared at my kitchen for awhile trying to decide what to have for lunch, then just threw all this stuff together in a pan and it turned out super flavorful and pretty much perfect. #vegan #plantbased #plantstrong #plantpower #eatingdownthefridge #frozenvegetables #cauliflower #cauliflowerrice #veganfood #veganeats #instafood #foodstagram #vegansofig #loveanimalseatplants #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #veganism #realfood #wholefoods #oilfree #wholefoodsplantbased #veganlife #fueledbyplants #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #healthy #healthyvegan #dairyfree #crueltyfree #vegansofinstagram #yum

My last time going to @greatsagevegan before I move to North Carolina 😒 Excited for new beginnings, but sad to leave some of my favorite places behind. Went out with a bang for dinner last night with @butterflyinvasion and @alexblessedomin. Pesto gnocchi primavera with a side of garlicky rainbow chard, plus the decadent brownie (with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, peanut butter and fudge drizzles) for dessert. I may be moving away, but y'all better believe I'll be hitting up Great Sage whenever I'm back in town 😎 #vegan #veganrestaurant #plantbased #plantstrong #pesto #food #veganfood #veganeats #instagram #foodstagram #vegansofig #wholefoods #realfood #gnocchi #dairyfree #crueltyfree #veganism #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #loveanimalseatplants #dessert #vegandessert #fueledbyplants #vegancommunity #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #veganlife #vegansofinstagram #yum #veganfortheanimals #anythingyoucandoicandovegan

When I get asked to bring a kale salad to @szenlea's Shabbat dinner, y'all know I deliver πŸ’ͺ Chopped organic Tuscan kale, fire-roasted corn, roasted leeks, roasted red peppers, and a simple lemon vinaigrette. P.S. Roasting the leeks made my apartment smell magical ✨ #vegan #plantbased #plantstrong #veganism #plantpower #veganfood #veganeats #instafood #foodstagram #kale #vegansofig #loveanimalseatplants #realfood #wholefoods #dairyfree #crueltyfree #organic #kalesalad #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #salad #healthy #vegancommunity #food #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #vegansofinstagram #fueledbyplants #wholefoodsplantbased #healthyvegan #eatyourgreens

This πŸ’£ quinoa broccoli salad has been my lunch all this week. Based on a recipe by @cookieandkate - quinoa, chopped broccoli, toasted almonds, fresh basil, and a maple dijon vinaigrette. Because when two of your favorite people who definitely have good taste in food both independently recommend the same recipe to you (here's lookin' at you, @kmdon416 and @mspaff88), you make it πŸ‘Œ Eat with @simplemills tomato basil crackers for extra crunch and savory deliciousness. #vegan #plantbased #plantstrong #food #plantpower #veganfood #veganeats #instafood #foodstagram #healthy #vegansofig #dairyfree #crueltyfree #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #realfood #wholefoods #loveanimalseatplants #foodprep #wholefoodsplantbased #broccoli #quinoa #lunch #veganism #vegancommunity #veganlife #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #vegansofinstagram #healthyvegan #fueledbyplants

More breakfast adventures. Beans for breakfast strikes again πŸ’ƒ Gigante beans in tomato sauce with dill and mixed olives, along with steamed green beans. I bought the gigante beans from the @wholefoodsmoco salad bar and intended to have them for dinner, but then I decided it'd be logical to have them for breakfast instead. Because why not and because I'm an adult who can make this kind of decision πŸ‘ #vegan #plantbased #plantstrong #breakfast #protein #beans #veganfood #veganeats #instafood #foodstagram #vegansofig #wholefoods #veganism #wholefoodsplantbased#realfood #fueledbyplants #dairyfree #crueltyfree #loveanimalseatplants #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #veganism #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #vegansofinstagram #healthy #veganlife #healthyvegan #veganfortheanimals #plantpowered #savorybreakfast

I'm not usually much into drinking my calories, but I've heard great things about the @rebbl drinks, so when I saw them on sale at @wholefoodsmoco yesterday, I figured I'd give them a shot. (Note: some of the flavors contain honey and are therefore not totally vegan, so make sure to check!) This reishi chocolate coconut milk 🍫 is basically like a healthy adult version of Yoohoo, minus the dairy and all the gross artificial stuff. I certainly ain't mad at it πŸ‘ #vegan #plantbased #plantstrong #reishi #adaptogen #mushrooms #veganfood #veganeats #chocolate #healthy #chocolatemilk #dairyfree #veganism #crueltyfree #instafood #foodstagram #vegansofig #wholefoods #fueledbyplants #healthyfats #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #veganlife #healthyvegan #loveanimalseatplants #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #whatvegansdrink #beverage #vegansofinstagram #veganfortheanimals

Pretty in pizza πŸ• Dinner from &pizza with @kmdon416 last night. Perfect meal after a great long day of hiking at Shenandoah. Are y'all ready for this long list of all my toppings? πŸ˜‚ Ancient grains crust with both classic tomato sauce and roasted vegetable sauce, spinach, @daiyafoods mozzarella, mushrooms, caramelized onions, broccoli, roasted red peppers, spicy chickpeas, pineapple, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, arugula, black pepper, and garlic sauce drizzle. #vegan #pizza #plantbased #plantstrong #veganpizza #food #instafood #foodstagram #veganfood #veganeats #realfood #vegancheese #dairyfree #crueltyfree #veganism #loveanimalseatplants #realfood #leaveanimalsoffyourplate #veganlife #DCvegan #vegancommunity #anythingyoucandoicandovegan #veganfoodshare #whatveganseat #vegansofig #veganfortheanimals #vegansofinstagram #yum #fueledbyplants #protein
