The FVR Membership Subscription

This post is a little bit different since I'm not writing a recipe (I need to write a new recipe post) BUT more about brand new recipes is right below. I am starting a membership option to give subscribers a more exclusive look at my blog, recipes and classes.  With the membership you get, cooking classes (with alot of input from you about what you want to cook), 7 day weekly meal plans, brand new recipes and access to our private facebook group. Everything listed above is free when you sign up for our membership. I know we are all struggling right now on some financial level; most of us have probably ensured a drop in income or a drop in freelance or gig work so I'm keeping the price low ($12.99/month).  Each cooking class will be something different, twice a month along with a new weekly meal plan each month. In our Facebook group, we will talk about recipes, veganism, cooking, starting a blog, inspirational quotes and enjoy lots of community!  Have questions? Email me at fab

Chickpea Tomato Sauce with Plant-Based Sausage and Pasta (vegan & high protein)

  According to my calculations, this recipe should be about 64g of protein, when you add hemp seeds (which are not pictured and optional for this recipe). I never figure out calories or macros for recipes because 1. I'm not a diet or calorie counting blog and 2. I don't feel like ever doing that. But I'm highlighting the protein because I put emphasis on my own protein consumption (I lift weights and love it!). AND because aren't we always hearing that vegans don't get enough protein? Ha! This recipe is peeerfect for the start of fall as it's hearty, super nutritious and very filling.

Berry Coconut Cream Cake with Chocolate Raisin-Walnut Crust (no bake, vegan, gluten-free)

I saw a couple of these cakes floating around Instagram and decided to make a vegan version. The top is all coconut cream and the crust is the most perfect, chewy, chocolatey crust. All you need is a food processor-this cake requires no baking and can be whipped up within minutes. Berry coconut cream cake with chocolate raisin-walnut crust is coming right up and it's vegan and gluten-free.
