Filling vegan meals

I had a message from a lovely follower, Jodie, who wanted suggestions on filling vegan meals. I agree that if you are used to meals heavy on protein including meat, seafood &/or dairy, a vegan meal may seem not as filling.

First of all be sure to include the following:

1. Some form of carbs
– quinoa or black rice are my favourites. There are also some great gluten-free breads, just read the ingredients. I have been using Naturis for years now – their gluten-free bread is free from any additives or preservatives.

2. Good fats
– avocado & olive oil are my staples!

3. Vegan protein
– protein powder in smoothies, chia seeds in everything, nuts on or in everything, seeds (pumpkin seeds & sunflower seeds are my go-to)

Some of my filling vegan meals include
Cauliflower kale quinoa salad
Kale, carrot & quinoa salad 

It’s worth trying these delicious dishes too:
