Pineapple Banana Smoothie

Yay it's Friday, what is everyone doing this weekend??

Here is a fun Friday smoothie recipe that I just love to make and share with others. It's a great smoothie to drink before or after a run. The fruit stand guy was selling pineapples for a great price the other day so I had to buy one. I cut it up and froze the pieces and I also froze some bananas. Here is my recipe:

1 large piece of frozen pineapple
2 frozen bananas
Non dairy milk to get it going
2 tbsp of nut butter (I used almond butter)
Blend everything in your high speed blender and there you have it!

I decided to merge my health coaching page with my existing recipes page because it's hard having two pages plus there is some overlap that I want to post on both pages. Follow me on fb at

I'm on instagram as foreverplantbased also. I decided I want to get back to my roots, where I was last year when I started my fb page and started getting into the kitchen and cooking. I started FVR to share easy vegan recipes with people and encourage them to start cooking. I always compare myself to others so it's easy to get wrapped up in what other people are doing and what I think I should be doing. Well, I'm going full steam ahead with my Italian cookbook due out in 2015 and I just want it to be all about the fabulous vegan recipes :)

So, I'll, of course, be posting recipes on my page but also health tips and inspirational quotes. My blog and fb page make me so happy because I love writing and cooking and connecting with people. Feedback is so awesome so feel free to leave a comment here or on my fb or instagram.
Much love to you all! Have a fabulous weekend!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
