Happy St Patrick’s Day!
While most people don’t always believe me because of my dark hair and not-so-fair skin, I’m from Irish descent. Actually, that’s mostly all I knew growing up because my dad’s family was in Ecuador so I only had my Irish side of the family around. My nana always wanted me to remember her side of the family was from County Mayo in Ireland and when St Patrick’s Day comes around she’s especially in my heart.
I love to celebrate my Irish heritage with anything green on St. Paddy’s day. This morning I got up early and made a green smoothie bowl with a shredded coconut shamrock. Today I’m going to get green bagels for my co-workers for lunch and tonight I’ll be having some of my vegan Colcannon Soup. I also won’t say no to some of that new vegan Bailey’s Irish liquor made with almonds that you may have seen me excited all excited about last week on my Instagram page.
Whether you’re Irish or not, may the luck of the Irish be with you today!
Healthy Vegan Fridays is an amazing weekly linkup for bloggers to share their delicious and healthy vegan food. This linkup is not restricted to recipes, though – feel free to share your posts on exercise & fitness, plant-based health & wellness, and/or vegan travel, restaurant and cookbook reviews.
Don’t have a blog? Don’t worry! You can come and see what others have shared and find some tasty food to try!
Here are a few of our favorite recipes from last week!
Vegan Hugg’s Ultimate Vegan Mac & Cheese looks creamy and delicious! Who would not want a bowl of this right now!? I know I do and it’s only 7am here!
Vegandollhouse has done it again! This Grasshopper Cake looks unbelievable. I mean, just look at those Hello Kitty figures she made out of chocolate. Ah-mazing!
This post on How to Eat on $4.13 a Day from Veggie Quest is really eye opening. Lee shows what it’s like to try to buy food on a poverty budget. So many people say it’s difficult to eat plant-based because of costs but Lee shows it can be done.
I could probably eat Running in a Skirt’s Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats everyday! They look decadent but they’re still healthy!
Kimmy is sharing her amazing looking Mini Mint Coconut Cream Pies. These look like the perfect treat for St Patricks Day and they’re healthy too!
And I’m sharing my vegan Colcannon Soup. Traditional Irish Colcannon is made with potatoes and either cabbage or kale (along with some dairy products) but I made a veganized soup version that anyone can enjoy!
