    The “meatballs” look great. Love how you added kale to them. Going to give it a try.
    I think the success is probably planning when transitioning to a vegan diet. cuz I know, it took me some time to search recipes and think outside the box to get past fixing sauteed veggies for dinner every night.

    I’m such a foodie, and living in wine country = thinking dining just has to be exquisite…the idea of this not being mutually exclusive with vegan makes me smile. So does the idea of healthy meatballs! Thanks!

    While I’m not strict vegan or even vegetarian, the majority of my meals tend to follow that. I just prefer it. I love when my parent or in laws are visiting and they say “Where’s the Meat?” or “We’re only have vegetables?” for dinner.

    Can’t wait to try the “meatballs” and the cake. Yum!

    Baking is the scariest part but it does work well. My husband even asked for the vegan version of brownies over the regular ones for his birthday!

    I love eating vegan (although I don’t do it all the time)- it takes some creativity if you want more than just plain ol’ veggies but I love experimenting. Taylor shared some great ideas!

      Thanks Melanie, you’re right it does take some creativity other wise I would probably given up just eating brussels sprouts and kale!

    Ok, I surrender. All of those plates look FRIGGIN AMAZE-BALLS. Can i just come over to your house every night for dinner? Christin can vouch for me, I’m not a weirdo or anything… well, not a “crazy” weirdo at least.

    Great post. I’m def. going to give that walnut-burger-thingy a try.

    These are fantastic tips! I’ve been trying to figure out cooking and baking as a vegetarian with vegan leanings who is also gluten free. It hasn’t been easy! Thanks so much for the tips.

    Great post! I’m not vegan, or vegetarian even, but I am a big supporter of people eating more fruits and veggies. So much healthier in the both short term and long term. It’s so important to understand HOW to eat them too. Many people cook out all the nutrients :(

    BTW, those meatballs look delicious!

    I was 100% vegan for about 18 months and even though I am not pure vegan anymore, I am about 85% – I love your ideas and I LOVE vegan desserts!

    Oh this is awesome! I find I feel so much healthier when I eat primarily vegan, but it is hard as I’m used to cooking for omnivores. I can’t wait to check out these recipes!
