Raspberry Chiaseed Jam Recipe VeganFond memories of my childhood have a lot to deal with cooking in the kitchen with my maternal grandmother.  She was a traditional German grandmother that believed each year all of us grand kids should get together to make the years’ harvest of canned items.  This included many things such as homemade sauerkraut (which to this day I can still not make the same as hers… whimpers), homemade grape juice, dilly beans, sweetened fruit and of many other items not listed an assortment of jams.  See how I have made this non-vegan accompaniment into a healthy vegan one below with the recipe and tons of photos.

Vegan Millet Muffin Recipe and Video

Hello Genki Friends!  This week I would like to share with you a recipe that has a been coming for a long time.  I have been wanting to make this recipe along with a video so I have held it captive so I could edit the video on post it along with the text version.  Why a video too?  We’re all busy, so I figure why not share the video along with the text version of the recipe for those of you busy and want to just the video in the background.  I know you busy mom’s out there don’t have time to read my babble all of the time…  Hopefully all of you enjoy these deliciously sweet, moist breakfast muffins.

Vegan Homemade Breakfast

During the week, I make quick recipes for Genki Husband before he goes to work. Then on the weekends I love to make a full vegan breakfast for something special (as long as we are not doing something special). This weekend brekkie was tofu scramble (mock scrambled eggs), homemade vegan chia seed jam, homemade American biscuits and finally breakfast crumbles. We did not get through all of this in one sitting, actually we ate it a few more times to tell you the truth. It was delicious though so we did not mind. You can find all these recipes on my sight.

Today is our final blog with miscellaneous meal photos.  I hope to get back to daily blogs with information on what we are eating as a vegan and recipes to share with all of you.  Eating vegan is so easy and mouth-watering that once you get used to the idea of eating healthy food you will never return to eating a SAD (standard American diet).  Here is what ate as vegans:

Vegan Tofu Meatloaf RecipeLately I have been really feeling the winter depression hard – I guess this is what we call the Dog Days of Winter right?  It’s the last month or so of winter that I really start to feel the blues the hardest – I’m really not a winter person as you all probably know already after all my winter complaining. ha-ha I just read in the South Bend weather app that spring is on its way so hopefully all of you will not have to listen to my complaints anymore.  Just not yet…  So as a trade-off, I’ll share the food we have been having lately along with the recipes.

Vegan grocery haul photos

Fruits that can sit out for a while and double as kitchen decorations.

I have to admit, we have been hitting the grocery stores hard lately.  Yep we have an addition to food, we have to have it at least three times a day.  So calling myself out here on this one…  anyone else want to call themselves out?  Okay, kidding aside, we love to test out new stores and restaurants when we move to a new location.  There are not as many options as say when we lived in Chicagoland or Washington D.C. but we are still enjoying ourselves little by little.  Here are the photos of our full grocery hauls for you to see what goes into our kitchen.  I have been thinking lately I might start vlogging these grocery hauls but do people really watch those like me?  Let me know what you think in the comments section, thanks.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Waffles RecipeOkay so I decided to start this part 3 off with something completely different than the last one.  Instead of the fruit breakfast I prefer to eat in the morning, this is what Genki Husband loves to eat.  I love to bake so Genki Husband gets to eat his favorites such as waffles, pancakes and bagels while I get to eat what I love which is fruit.  Mmmm  Are you a waffle or fruit type of breakfast eater?  Let me know in the comments section.
