I’m back from London! My boyfriend and I were there for 10 days to see his friends and partially for work as well. We basically ate the ENTIRE trip. Everything from vegan croissants to crepes to donuts to ale pie. It was such an over-indulgent trip for me. Trust me, I enjoyed every second of it but now I’m more than happy to get back to my normal exercise and eating routine. I haven’t felt the best lately, because I had a bad cold all last week when I got back. But today was the first day where my head cleared up and I was back to work! So, I put together this vegan Easter recipe round-up with 10 delicious, easy vegan recipes.
I’m a sushi addict. Seriously, self-admittedly I eat sushi almost every day. When I moved to Hong Kong a year ago, I initially found it hard to find vegan restaurants that accommodated my requests for oil-free, non-fried foods. There are only a couple of strictly vegan restaurants as well as a handful of vegan-friendly ones which offer fast-food type Chinese food, burgers, or salads loaded with high-fat dressing. I find most of it too greasy for my stomach, which prefers more low-fat plant-based food. The one exception is sushi, which is incredibly vegan-friendly, oil-free and can be found all over the city. To curb this rather pricey habit, I’ve made this plant-based deconstructed sushi bowl which has been my go-to dinner lately.
I’d like to start off with an ode to this vegan burger. Yep, you bet I got a vegan burger in Paris and it was the best burger I’ve had in years. It’s actually the only burger I’ve had in the past 2 years (besides ones I’ve made myself at home), but darn it was good. It’s also basically the only vegan food I had in Paris that wasn’t sushi. Paris was well, Paris. I liked it, though I missed waking up to the sparkling, beautiful Mediterranean Ocean every day in the south of France. I’ll admit the French Riviera stole my heart.
