Anyone else really enjoy @thefirstmess’ Happy Hour posts w/ links and a recipe? Here’s last week’s post: Maple Sea Salt Latte which is totally lush — making my Monday feel a little extra 🥳 Wishing everyone’s good week! (I used the Califia Barista Blend almond milk and found it ok — it gives the coffee a nice creamy texture. Not sponsored just what I’m trying). #firstmessse#thefirstmess#veganlatte#mondaymorningcoffee#f52feelgood@food52 . . . . #lattebowl#inmykitchen#imsomartha#storyofmytable#TODAYfood#lifestylecollective#fbcigers@foodbloggersca#seekthesimple#breakfastinspo#bhgfood#fbcigers@foodbloggersca#foodstylingandphotography#maplelatte#califiafarms#baristablend#almondmilklatte#easyeats#igfoodie#coffeeinframe

breakfast cookies from @thefirstmess cookbook. they’re like a cross between the top of a muffin and a cookie in the best way possible. the recipe called for rice flour, which I didn’t have, so I subbed it for buckwheat flour and they still turned out amazing (and higher in protein). the seedy fillings are customizable so I used hemp, coconut, pumpkin seeds, cacao nibs, and some frozen blueberries

priorities: hearty enough to fuel our long ass hike today but a semi-healthy take on trashy comfort food for a fri night dinner date at home. the result, loaded nachos with @whatsgabycookin’s easy Mexican shredded chicken, topped with the works plus @thefirstmess’ vegan queso (WHICH BTW IS SO FRICKING AMAZING!!!). used all the extra leftover ingredients to create a pesto chicken quesadilla with the vegan queso of course using @thefirstmess’ pumpkin seed pesto recipe for our post-hike meal. #feelgoodfood#comfortfood#doitfordopamine#thefirstmess

In the spirit of experimentation, I wanted to try tahini in a drink. @thefirstme
In the spirit of experimentation, I wanted to try tahini in a drink. @thefirstmess has this tahini smoothie that looked really good, but I'm honestly not a huge fan of banana in smoothies because it makes everything taste like just banana (imho) so I opted out of the banana for more of a frothy drink and less of a smoothie and added in some turmeric and ginger. So really it's a vaguely similar situation to the smoothie, but tahini in a drink is a new thing for me and honestly it's really nice. Consider swapping that tablespoon of peanut butter for tahini in your next smoothie! It's about the same in nutritional value, but has different health benefits and fits a different flavor profile 🌰🥜 . . . . #tahini#turmeric#cinnamon#vanilla#oatmilk#smoothie#tahinifroth#thefirstmess#inspiration#foodinspo#trynewthings#balance#allingoodbalance#yum#imhonestlyjustalwaysthirsty#makinghealthychoices#healthyswap#sesamebutter

With your hands, bring the burger mixture together one more time.Divide the burger mixture into either 4 or 6 patties, carefully but firmly patting them together with your hands. Set a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Lay the formed burgers on the lined baking sheet as you finish them. Cover the burgers with plastic wrap and let them set up in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.Then grill on pan 8 minutes each side. When ready make the burger adding slaw and sauce.

I haven't had much desire or time to cook for a bit, so it was nice to have a little more control over what I was eating and making healthier choices. For example, I wanted Chinese takeout, so instead I made sesame cauliflower that's baked, not fried and then tossed in a modifiable sauce. I found it via @thefirstmess and did a little tweaking for my own preference, such as using agave instead of maple syrup as a sweetener and using a little less sweetener. Gimme all that salty umami gold! 🥬🥬🥬 . . . . #chinesefood#chinesetakeout#chinesetakeoutathome#healthieroptions#sesamecauliflower#bakednotfried#sesame#thefirstmess#vegandinner#cookingvegetarian#confessionsofaparttimevegetarian#cookinghealthy#omnomnom#ovenbaked#scallion#sesameseeds#yummy#cookingagain

This morning's experiment resulted in an easy-to-bake, protein-packed vegan pancake I had some millet amazake in my fridge for a couple of months already. Bought @hetnatuurhuis cause I didn't know what it was. It had been staring at me for too long now, this morning i decided to finally use it For those who don't know amazake(as for me 2 months ago, it's a fermented millet(gierst) product, which is naturally sweet. So you can use it as an alternative to sweeten up your dishes and in the meanwhile adding some probiotics and vitamine B #foodbygront#thinkbeforeyoueat#probioticfoods Inspired by the recipe of @thefirstmess Ingredients -1/4 cup + 2tbsp spelt flakes -1/4 cup kasha (buckwheat groats) -1/4 cup sunflowerseed -2 tbsp flax seeds -1cup boiling water -1/4cup @clearspring millet arame -1/2 teaspoon of baking powder 1/4 tsp vanilla extract -1/4 tsp sea salt -1 tsp maple syrup Coconut oil for baking Method Add spelt flakes, kasha, flax& sunflowerseed in blender and cover with boiling water. Close the blender with the lid.Wait for 5 minutes and add rest of the ingredients. Blend on high speed until you have a uniform mixture. Bake with coconut oil in a medium skillet , on low heat, 1/4 cup at a time. Flip when you see tiny air bubbles in the pancake Serve with nutbutter, fruits, chocolate, yoghurt...

86 22
2018 #Cookbook Review! The first picture is of cookbooks I set out to cook from this year—I did not get around to Tartine All Day, but that’s because I spent 3 months with the #RainyDayBitesCookbookClub cooking through Sweet, Dining In, and Now and Again. 1 good and bad thing about every book I cooked through this year: #Sweet: the book is comprehensive and the desserts are beautiful, most of the flavors aren’t for me, however #VanillaBeanBakingBook: the recipes are foolproof and the writing is very relatable, I just wish there were more of it! #BakersRoyale: a huge surprise for me—every recipe was a hit; wish that there were some recipes with more thoughtful ingredients throughout. #TheFirstMess: all the recipes were very simple, but usually bland #SmallVictories: I learned so much from this book, none of the recipes made me say “wow!” but I absolutely recommend for everyday cooking #SmittenKitchen: I liked this even better than her follow-up, the layout was a little difficult, however #NaturallyNourished: simple, but the meals never felt quite filling enough #SeriouslyDelish: the recipes that were a hit were obsessively good, but they all required so many steps that if they weren’t a hit, I was hit with disappointment #OverEasy: every dish was outstanding. This book has no faults #DiningIn: I want to make these dishes again and again, the flavors were on, but the style of cooking isn’t quite for me—it’s almost too little work, I don’t feel like I get to enjoy cooking for the hobby it is for me #NowandAgain: same comments as for Small Victories, simple recipes that will teach you some skills and get you a delicious meal in not a lot of time #HalfBakedHarvest: the prettiest food I’ve eaten all year, I think there are more steps than necessary to a lot of recipes (why make browned butter noodles if you’re just going to pour stew on top and not taste them?) Can’t wait for 2019! 🏅🏅🏅 to you if you read this far 😂 #cookingfrommycookbooks

This salad from @thefirstmess cookbook is one of the best I’ve ever made. I’m not even a huge salad person but this is the 3rd time I’ve made it this week. It’s joking titled the “Master cleanse” salad because the flavours of the dressing are inspired by the infamous master cleanse. / massaged lacinato kale, fennel, apple, macerated shallot, toasted sunflower seeds, and a simple lemon juice vinaigrette that’s spiked with cayenne and maple syrup

I realized that sometimes in life I try to control all possible outcomes. I like to know "the end" of the story before the story even begins. I have learned that many times in life the outcomes are unknown, uncontrollable from the start of the journey. And even more so, that the BEAUTY of our life takes place AS our stories unfold, not simply at the end. So my NYR for 2019 is: To walk In FAITH. To live with TRUST. To Act In JOY. To Make CHOICES each day that align with my soul even if I don't how these choices will unfold.

These past two days in North Texas have been literally F R E E Z I N G. 🥶 I’m so thankful for other food bloggers who create and share bomb ass recipes, like this ginger maple molasses latte from @thefirstmess , to keep my palate satisfied! .. .. .. With SO MANY accounts + blogs, it can be hard to keep up with your favorites (especially with the ever changing algorithms). My favorite way to make sure I don’t miss or forget about a recipe (like this “latte”), is by subscribing to my favorite blogs! .. .. .. I’m always looking for food blogs / recipes, so if you have a favorite or two, tag em below or send me a message! And if you know anyone who’s looking to follow a bomb ass, plant based foodie, tell em alllll about @baumassfoods! Happy Thursday! .. .. .. .. #foodbloggers#foodie#instafood#foodstagram#maple#molasses#ginger#latte#winterdrink#coldweather#freezingtemps#vegan#plantbased#whatvegansdrink#inmycup#healthier#yumyum#foodthatfuels#foodphotography#localbloggers#blackfoodbloggers#blackfoodies#todayfood#thefirstmess#community#dallasfood#fortworth#baumassfoods

A dear friend gifted me this beautiful book for Christmas. Laura from @thefirstmess has done such a beautiful job gathering nourishing and delicious recipes together. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ I tried the corn chowder recipe a few days ago. My first home cooked meal in my new home. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Omigoodness. It was so delicious! I made a big pot enough for four and ate it all within two days 😋⠀ .⠀ .⠀ What are your current cook book obsessions? . . #healthyrecipe#healthyrecipes#cookthis#homecooked#recipebook#thefirstmess#plantbased#plantbaseddiet#plantbasedfood#eatmoreplants#wholesome#wholefoods#deliciousfood#eathealthy#healthyfood#healthyeats#healthyeating#healthylife#healthyliving#healthychoices#livehealthy#behealthy#healthylifestyle#wellbeing#nourish#nourishing#soups#warmingfood#comfortfood#austinblogger

DEEP green lentil stew with spinach, tahini & lemon is on the blog today 💚. With a sharp little finish of gremolata on top (just minced up lemon zest, parsley and garlic), you've got the perfectly vibrant AND cozy #vegan meal to kick off 2019 🎉. This stew would be great if you're trying #veganuary too 😉. Recipe link in my profile! #thefirstmess#veganuaryrecipes#plantpowered#veganfood#plantbased#wfpb#wholefoods#veganrecipes#healthyrecipes

Oh my oh my! Got to try a quick recipe from my new Christmas cookbook!! Vanilla Coconut Coffee Creamer - as our little fam grows, so too the food choices, allergies, & intolerances.

No disappointment today! 🖤☕️🖤 Thank you thank you @thefirstmess - Laura Wright for your lovely cookbook of plant-based recipes!! There is hardly a Recipe I don’t want to try!! #thefirstmess#plantbased#bringmecoffee#milkallergies

Dinner tonight was the harissa chickpea bowl with roasted potatoes, tahini dressing and greens from @thefirstmess blog. I added roasted cauliflower and some olives and served with za’atar naan. Definitely a hit, so good and flavourful! #recipe#chickpeas#vegetarian#vegan#veganfoodshare#instafood#thefirstmess#cauliflower#healthyfood

Soooooo I am FINALLY going back to being vegetarian after a long 9 months! During my pregnancy, I think my body was craving protein, and I craved meat obsessively. It was pretty ridiculous and felt uncontrollable. I did try to add vegan protein powder shakes to my diet, but to no avail. So I succumbed. Anyway, now I am so happy to be going back to my vegetarian lifestyle. No fish occasionally this time either. I’ll be making mostly vegan recipes at home too. This little gem is featured on @thefirstmess page. It’s a delightfully earthy mushroom lentil soup. The difference is I didn’t purée half, added more almond milk, and garnished with nutritional yeast since my husband prefers soups that are thinner. I have her cookbook and absolutely love EVERYTHING I’ve made from it and her website. So excited to be cooking again too! Love love love ❤️ #vegan#vegetarian#organic#healthyeating#healthy#breastfeeding#mushroom#soup#thefirstmess#kale#almondmilk#dinner#yummy#yum#yumyum#healthyforbaby#lentils

This right here!!!! 💯 #dips#snacks Reposted from @thefirstmess - This LUSCIOUS eggplant dip with toasted walnuts, yogurt, tahini & lemon is up on the blog today. It's totally #plantbased and naturally #oilfree (if you ignore that little garnishing slick on the top 🤔) Probably the best way to use up all that local eggplant, just my opinion though 🤷🏼‍♀️😉.

We had cookies & milk for Christmas breakfast. 🍪🥛These delicious treats are full of goodness with oats, banana, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, hazelnuts and loads more tasty and nutritious goodies. Vegan too! A lovely find from ‘The First Mess Cookbook’ by Laura Wright. These cookies can be frozen and defrosted as needed for those days when you’re short on time for breakfast. A great ‘on the go’ breakfast. A nice treat for kids to have cookies for breakfast but knowing you’re giving them a nutritious start to the day. ⠀ #vegancookies#breakfastcookies#thefirstmess#tryinganewrecipe#healthystarttotheday#vegancookies
