What do some people say they can never give up and go vegan? Usually I hear the eggs and cheese excuse. Don’t get me wrong, I ate my fair share of both of these back in my day but as a vegan I have been “forced” to make healthier, cholesterol free options. And guess what … THEY TASTE SO DAMN GOOD!

INGREDIENTS:

2 -3 chillies (optional)

2 cloves garlic
1 x 400g package tofu,
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon fine black salt, plus extra for sprinkling
1/2 cup chickpea flour

1 pepper

1/2 onion

Kale to taste

Vegan cheese (optional)
1 tablespoon arrowroot or cornstarch

METHOD:

  1. Chop up the garlic and chillies, add the tofu, olive oil, turmeric and salt to a blender and puree until smooth. Add the chickpea flour and cornstarch and puree again for about 10 seconds, until combined. Make sure to scrape down the sides so that everything is well incorporated.
  2. Preheat a large, heavy bottomed, non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Make sure that you use a large pan, as you need room to spread out the omelet and to get your spatula under there to flip.
  3. Pour over stir fried onion, kale and pepper
  4. When browning at the sides add vegan cheese and then flip over carefully (this is tricky! – see video)
  5. Once cooked through, add to plate with breakfast salad or potatoes!

Yes you did read that title correct, no your eyes do not deceive you. Cinnamon roll pancakes! Ok so I never used to like cinnamon until I started having turmeric lattes and cinnamon rolls (jeez I sound like an LA kid, am I lost?!). But true, cinnamon was never my thing but actually maybe the foods it was in was not my thing, so yeah basically I like cinnamon now! But only when in something super sweet. Like a cinnamon roll. Or cinnamon roll pancakes!

Hi Guys!
My Name is Natalie Matthews.  I am an NFF bikini Pro, NPC Nationally Qualified bikini athlete, and Certified Vegan Chef.
I would love to share one of my favorite breakfast and post workout snacks that I have almost every day during prep. You can follow me on instagram here!
I enjoy starting my morning off with oats, berries, or a green smoothie, but lately, I’ve been combining everything into smoothie bowls.  I seem to never get tired of them.  They don’t take long to make and are packed with healthy ingredients to help you start the day off right.  This smoothie bowl is also perfect as a pre/post workout snack.  Eat this and conquer your day!
Green Boost Smoothie Bowl
Makes one bowl
Ingredients
3 oz of spinach (about 1 cup packed)
2 frozen bananas
2 pitted dates
2-3 tbsp peanut butter powder
1 tbsp flax or chia seeds
1 scoop vegan protein powder
Optional toppings:
berries: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries
dried fruit
granola
coconut chips
cacao nibs
oats
cereal
vegan chocolate chips
nuts or seeds
Instructions
Start by adding spinach to the bottom of a high-speed blender or food processor.  On top of the spinach, add bananas, dates peanut butter powder, flax seeds, and protein powder in that order.  Add some water if needed.
Blend thoroughly on high until you have a thick Ice cream consistency.
Pour the smoothie into a bowl and get creative with your favorite toppings.
This recipe could also be left as a smoothie by adding a half a cup of water or vegan milk and pouring it into a glass.  This is an excellent way to get a ton of nutrients on the go!
