Thai-Style Glass Noodle Salad

Forget everything I said about Thai food being intimidating to make. Not anymore. Who knew you can get their delicious flavours so easily?!

Thai glass noodle salad is one of my personal favourites. I would always order it at Thai restaurants and just eat the noodles plain (since I don’t like seafood) with the sweet and sour seasoning on it.

Thai food has always seemed hard to make for me (for whatever reason), so I’ve slightly adapted it to make it as simple and healthy as possible – opting for coconut sugar and coconut aminos, a soya sauce alternative, and low fat coconut milk.

Vegan Curry Quinoa

What’s the best way to use up any leftover veggies in the fridge, before they get old? There’s juicing, of course, which as you may know, I love, but what if you’re actually hungry? I say, throw ’em in for some yummy vegan curry!

This vegan curry quinoa dish is so easy and satisfying that it’s one of our go-tos in my home.
