Vegan Tacos with Coconut-Lime Yogurt

Mexican food typically doesn’t have a lot of fiber or vegetables; it’s usually beans, corn, flour, cheese, salsa and little bit of shredded lettuce.  These tacos have lots of veggies, are low calorie, super tasty and 100% vegan.

Vega One protein powder review

I posted a question on Facebook to see if anyone could recommend a sugar-free, grain-free, certified organic, vegan protein powder that tastes good, so I can add it to my fruit smoothies, and this flavor and brand was recommended by several people. I bought the sample, added it with a frozen banana, one cup of cold water, and blended it in my Ninja. Like many […]
