1 heaping tbsp peanut butter (i recommend crunchy!)
1-2 tbsp melted dark chocolate*

*Grab 2-3 tbsp dark chocolate chunks.
→ We are potentially melting a little more chocolate than you might need for 1 bowl, to avoid burning such a small amount.
*Microwave Method: Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, removing and stirring between, until the chocolate has melted thoroughly.
*Oven Method: Cook the chocolate in the oven in a medium oven proof bowl at 300oF (150C) for 3-4 minutes. Carefully remove the bowl and let sit for 5 minutes before mixing the chocolate until fully melted.

→ serves 1

  1. Hey Mina ! I used to like your videos! but I must say I am a bit disappointed.
    I am self-conscious Vegan who likes to eat a healthy and more wholefood based dishes
    If I follow your simple breakfast and lunch ideas, including drinks and milkshakes and snacks in between like you used to show, I think I would end up having a sugar crush in midday and feel horribly tired, so in the long run I would feel unhealthy even tough it is Vegan. That's why I would love to see more of sugar free and whole food kinda videos from You ! Thanks !

  2. My fav low effort snack is roasted cashews it’s crunchy and just absolutely perfect what you need are 1/2 cup Cashews a generous amount of salt some pepper and a lil paprika [but you can add any seasoning’s you like] and a tsp of olive oil. So first combine the seasonings and oil w the cashews in a pan then turn on the heat and toss them around every 2 seconds until you get some golden brown spots on the cashews. Let cool down on parchment paper and your done

  3. Best "quesadilla" I've made so far, first finely chop 1/4 of a red onion and caramelize it, chop 2 to 3 slices of tomatoes (season with salt, pepper olive oil and herbs), mash 1/2 an avocado with some salt pepper and a splash of lemon. Heat up your tortilla, on one half spread some vegan cream cheese and the other half a bit of hummus and the mashed avocado, top with your caramelized onions, chop tomates, some spinach and 2 slices of vegan cheese. Fold in half and put in the pan for ~2min on each side. Enjoy!!
