Easy Meal Ideas - Introduction to the Series and a simple, healthy Oatmeal recipe.

Image
A question we often get asked, as vegans, is "what do you eat?" There are tons of vegan options out there these days. The food choices we make are influenced by trying to save money and also wanting to eat healthier. We don't always succeed but we try our best.

Isn't it more fun to be spontaneous? It depends on how lucky you are with lines.
We don't like to plan ahead and sometimes it doesn't work out.
As usual, we didn't do a lot of planning before we went on our holiday. We had a rough idea about some of the stuff we wanted to see but we mostly planned to just wing it when we got there. This is not for everyone. We had a great time visiting Paris since our enjoyment didn't depend on seeing all the biggest tourist sights …
