Roasted Red Pepper Ketchup

Spicy sugar free, vegan, gluten free, roasted red pepper ketchup, with no sugar or salt added

Ever since I started being more mindful of what I’m eating, I’ve been making loads of things from scratch, such as pesto and hummus. The main reason for me is that by making it myself, I know exactly what goes in it, and I get to adjust it to my nutritional and taste preferences.

Have you ever read the nutrition label at the back of your ketchup bottle? It is quite likely that your favourite ketchup is actually 1/3 part sugar! If you then continue reading the ingredient list, you’ll probably see high fructose corn syrup or something alike listed as the second or third ingredient, which means that it is the second or third most ingredient used. I’m not here to discuss the whole HFCS debate, but I do know that I don’t like to eat a lot of sugar, but if I do, I want it to be in the form of a delicious cookie, cake or muffin, and not in the form of an average-tasting, salty, red “tomato” sauce.

High Protein Vegan Summer Rolls

High protein vegan summer rolls

Vegans are often accused of two things: they either get no protein at all, or they get all their protein from “artificial sources” such as protein drinks. Truth is, for me – and most of the vegans I’ve met – neither is the case! I love me some Mexican bean tacos, Indian lentil soup, and Middle-Eastern chickpeas. Since I’ve been tracking my protein intake with the app My Fitness Pal for quite a while now, I can confidently say that I get plenty of protein every single day, without drinking protein shakes like my life depends on it. Of course I eat the occasional protein bar, simply because I like them.

Summery Strawberry, Rhubarb and Rose Dessert Soup

Dessert soup with rose, rhubarb and strawberries

This Strawberry, Rhubarb and Rose Soup has actually evolved super naturally. I still had some fresh organic rhubarb laying around, and wanted to make a recipe with it that wasn’t what is typically done with rhubarb. I already once made a rhubarb strawberry lemonade that I absolutely love, so inspired by that I wanted to make another ‘drink’ that involved rhubarb. Obviously, this soup isn’t a ‘drink’, but I guess that if you would thin it down a little, you could definitely call this a smoothie as well.
