Adventures in vegan eats and feats


Sweet potato smoothie bowl {gluten-free + vegan}

Hello! I’m alive! 😀 Well, sort of. My hiatus is still semi-ongoing, but I decided to check in and share something tasty I had last week or so, because I rather miss blogging and Facebook of all things gave me a guilt trip about not posting regularly. :p It’s not really smoothie bowl weather at the moment but I persevere in the face of yumminess, so I’ve been taking a lot of hot showers after lunch or breakfast these days just to get my body temperature back up. The things we do for food…Sweet potato smoothie bowl #gluteefree #vegan via Marfigs' Munchies Continue reading


Creamy protein oat porridge

Hallo! I’m sort of here, just to share a daily ritual I’ve been indulging in thanks to the icy nonsense of winter. Seriously, I told myself I wouldn’t complain when we had non-stop heat waves in summer, but there’s nothing quite like the feeling that you’ll never be warm again. Ah well, this breakfast is creamy, easy, and protein-packed: possibly the only reason to wake up and get going in the morning!Creamy protein oat porridge #vegan and #glutenfree via Marfigs' Munchies Continue reading

Beany citrus zucchini {vegan MOFO}

Today’s Vegan Mofo theme is pretty evil, because three things is ridiculously restrictive when there’s such a bounty of food to tempt a perpetually nibbly Marfigs. My three endless food supplies that I would choose if I were to be stranded on an island (imagining my nutritional needs have been met) are, for now at least, kidney beans, oranges and zucchini. 😀beanycitruszucchin5broccoliweb Continue reading


No-bake banana bread ball parfait

Today is apparently (inter)national Eat Dessert First Day! This is my kinda day, because that’s the way the universe should function: pudding first, real life later. Luckily for me summer is almost here and then I can have dessert for breakfast every day in the form of a smoothie bowl, which is nature’s candy. In the meantime, here is a meager but easy offering to take the edge off of a Wednesday.pudding5 Continue reading


Breakfast barley bowl

Today’s post is a very simple little hello in the form of a breakfast barley bowl. I’ve been trying to cut down on junk food of late, since being vegan doesn’t mean eating healthy necessarily, so this was my way of kickstarting Sunday with some nutritional pow. I’ve also been cooking up a storm trying out recipes from Annie’s wonderful book, Crave Eat Heal, so all in all this was a pretty food-filled weekend, definitely defined by those words.barleybowl1

Apple pie smoothie

Crazy mode again! 😀 I was thinking of a super quick way to get some deliciousness in during the afternoons before embarking on the power walks around the neighbourhood a friend and I try and take during the weekdays, and this came up. I’m more often than not out of bananas and there are always apples for Man-thing’s daily fruit rations (since chocolate does not and should not count), so yum! The chilly drink with the warm cake bits… oh yes please!

Buckwheat banana mint mash pancake {gf + v}


I survived my first week of the new (second) job and am now bouncing forward into week two. As much as I like to stay on top of things and organized sometimes things do get put on the side, like the two assignments due Friday for my library diploma. Whoops. But stressing is for people who don’t have easy mint mash pancakes in their life, so I’m going to have a few late nights this week but I figure it was worth it for a bit of relaxation over the weekend. Pancakes certainly make me feel like I’m spoiling myself, so as a beginning-of-week-treat last night it worked wonders!

Sloppy joe pumpkin potatoes {vegan + gluten-free}

There are some things I’ve always been keen to try, and a sloppy joe is one of them. This dish takes a pumpkin-based joe and stuffs it into a grilled baby potato instead of a huge burger, because we impulsively bought the little buggers and then were kind of at a loss as to what to do with them, not being big fans usually. May I just say, yum?

Spicy hot cross bun hot chocolate {vegan + gluten-free}

Earlier this week I posted a spicy hot cross bun smoothie recipe to celebrate spring for the northern hemisphere, so now I post a hot chocolate to commiserate with my fellows in the south as winter looms around the corner. This is a super healthy, rich drink that’s so thick you can eat it with a spoon (as I did). The ingredients are very similar to the smoothie but just geared for fluffy socks and tasseled hats. Still, there’s nothing that stops anyone from sitting in front of a fan with this drink in hand 🙂hotcrossbunpotmarfigs1
