Gluten Free Vegan Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Frosting

Image

I had plans to leave the house today. Then it started snowing and Christmas shows came on tv. I kept telling myself just one more episode. But then it was too late to go anywhere and these happened. Totally worth procrastinating, staying in my pj’s, and not stepping outside? Absolutely.

I’ve been trying to create a cinnamon roll recipe for a few weeks now and I hit the nail on the head this afternoon. Christmas miracle!!

The rolls are very moist and compliment the creamy vanilla frosting so well. Warm these up in the microwave for a few seconds and hear your taste buds sing songs of pure bliss.

Quinoa & Mushroom Bowl

Image

I finally have a chance to create delicious meals once again! Last week was crazy hectic and I felt like I was living off of smoothies and quick salads. That didn’t make me very happy! But no worries, I’m back into my routine and feeling better than ever. 🙂

I have been on a crazy mushroom kick lately. Mushrooms here, mushrooms there. They’ve basically been added to every meal except breakfast for the past few days. Mmm, can’t get enough!

Summer Crunch Bowl

Serves 1

1 cup spinach
1/4 cup quinoa
1/4 cup lentils
1/2 ccup mushrooms

Cook the quinoa, lentils, and mushrooms. While they’re cooking get a bowl and place the spinach into it. Once the quinoa and lentils are done, mix them together then add to the bowl. Add mushrooms as well. Then top with almonds and nutritional yeast. Eat in layers or stir stir stir until everything’s mixed together. (That’s what I do 🙂 ) Enjoy!
