  1. Hi Mina! I m a follower since your very firsts videos, years ago. I m pretty curious about what you think of vegan cheese with fat of coconut, and what are the best ingredient's "base" of vegan cheese we can buy on the market (I m italian living in brasil).. I don t eat any kind of dairy and I found almost the vegan cheese very heavy for the liver and I m looking for a good and the most healthier option. Thank you in advance !

  2. My faaavorite way to eat wraps recently has been like this: Fry bell peppers with garlic & Italian herbs, when they're halfway done, add corn and then leftover rice and mix it. I make like a salsa kinda mix of chopped cucumber, tomato and radish & add some herbs like parsley or whatever you have. When building the wrap I start with a layer of sauce (lately I've been obsessed with a store-bought Hawaiian sauce) then add the rice mixed, sprinkle over some cheese, add the salsa mixture, a little more sauce, some iceberg lettuce and a few pieces of tortilla crisps (game changer!) Then roll it up and of course toast it. it's SO good!

  3. I love your videos and was shocked when Vegeta came on the screen cause it´s a Croatian product that´s used a lot by people here. I know expats buy it so they have it in some stores outside of Croatia. How did you come upon it? 😀

  4. Hiii I love your recipes! I made the carbonara type meal, but for me it just kind of tasted like the chickpea flour. I followed every step and added a lot of salt and chili but I think it didn't work properly. But I'll be trying more of these ideas soon 😊

  5. loved these recipes! i was wondering if you (or anyone reading this really) have any tips or ideas for more protein-rich meals? currently trying to balance eating vegan more often while also working out 5 times a week. it's a work in progress 🙂
