Vegan Banana and Walnut Breakfast Muffins

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing | No Comments

Sometimes you need a quick grab and go breakfast. As for gluten free and vegan options, fruit is the answer of course, or gluten free oats. So I’ve combined the two into yummy hearty muffins that you can bake the night before. These muffins have no cholesterol, no added fats, and no refined white sugar (as the muffins you buy in coffee shops do). Not to mention they are packed with fibre, potassium from both the bananas and walnuts. Along…

Creamy Vegan Thyme & Mushroom Soup

By | Dublin, Food, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan | No Comments

So I have a thyme bush growing in my garden. It’s the best herb to grow because it’s self sufficient, I never prune it or water it (not that it would need much watering in Ireland). It’s brilliant because it means anytime I’m roasting potatoes or cooking anything really I can run outside a cut off some fresh thyme! Herbs add so much flavour to cooking (vegan or not). There was an abundance of mushrooms in my fridge this week,…

Creamy Chickpea Curry- Gluten Free Vegan

By | Dublin, Food, Healthy, Jenny O'Neill, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan | No Comments

Now that summer is making a (slight) appearance and the evenings are longer, there is nothing nicer than sitting in the garden enjoying the sunshine and a shared meal. I find curries are always a crowd pleaser, for omnivores and vegans alike, curries are so flavoursome and easy to prepare exactly to your personal taste. I’m a huge fan of Indian and Nepalese food, not only is the food always so delicious and heavily spiced, it’s filling and perfectly balanced…

Vegan Nice Cream Sundae

By | Dublin, Food, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing | No Comments

Sometimes you need dessert, and ice cream is the way to go. Conventional ice cream is packed with saturated fats, dairy, cholesterol and all kinds of nasties. However this vegan ice cream can be whipped up in 5 minutes, and you can eat as much as you like! This recipe requires you to freeze some bananas the night before, make sure you peel some ripe bananas and chop them up before sticking them in the freezer in a ziplock bag!…

Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

By | Dublin, Food, Healthy, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan | No Comments

Who doesn’t love Nutella? The whole world is mad for chocolately hazelnut gooeyness and rightly so, it’s a match made in heaven. I’m not a huge fan of sweet stuff usually, but nearing the end of my degree the pressure is on, and I needed some vegan version of the chocolate stuff to get me through. So I made some vegan nutella, or chocolate spread or whatever you like to call it. And it turned out amazing!! So decadent and…

Cheats Gluten Free Vegan Pizza

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing | No Comments

When life gets hectic, food can either be the first or last thing on your mind. For me I want something tasty, but with minimal effort. Pizza is a crowd pleaser, I have yet to meet someone who tells me they don’t enjoy a pizza. Pizza is also one of the things that people are concerned about when they hear you are a vegan or consider a vegan diet themselves, but fear not. There’s plenty of vegan pizza to go…

Cheesy Low Fat Vegan Pasta Bake

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing | No Comments

A lot of people I speak to about veganism say they could never live without cheese. And a lot of those who make the move to vegan say they miss cheese, but there are so many ways to make your own, or of course buy some there’s plenty of really tasty ones becoming available lately! The trouble is sometimes you can’t get to a health store to buy some vegan cheese, or the ingredients to make your own can be…

Sweeeeet Vegan Burgers

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing | No Comments

I think I am the only human being in the whole of the world who is not in love with sweet potatoes.. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s just I don’t think they’re any better than a good old rooster. I mean I know theyt count as one of your 5 a day.. as opposed to a carb.. but being a vegan my diet is 80% wholefood carbs, and anyway I’m far from agreeable with the ‘recommended daily…

Vegan Steaks, Fried Rice, á la Cauli

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan | No Comments

Cauliflower is an underrated vegetable. It’s rich in vitamin C and fibre, and it’s totally fat free and tasty of course! As well as being free from gluten and sugar if that’s how you roll. I set myself the challenge of making a vegan meal for two, using only one cauliflower along with spices and a few other small vegetables for flavour. I made 2 ‘asian style’ vegan steaks, so delicious, char grilled, smoky, savoury and satisfying. I served the…

Easy Peasy Low Fat Vegan Mayo!!

By | Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing | No Comments

Being a vegan in Dublin in 2016 finding and buying ‘substitutes’ for regular meat and dairy products can still be expensive and disappointing, which is strange to me in this day and age. So many people are looking for ‘healthier options’ there’s no denying this. But are the ‘healthier’ options out there really any healthier? Often products are laced with refined sugars and oils, which are of no nutritional value to anyone, but add lots of ’empty’ calories. So, while…
