Today I made the Triple Chocolate Fat Pants millionaire cake. It costs about $20-$25 to make but well worth every cent. The cake is gluten free, vegan and beyond delicious. It’s a chocolate chip brownie-like cake with vanilla frosting, and chocolate chip cookies in between each layer and on top.

With the extra chocolate chip cookies, I decided to make an ice cream sandwich with vegan ice cream. So this week marks my first vegan pie, my first vegan ice cream sandwich, my first vegan cake, my first vegan stuffed pasta shells AND my first vegan chili cheese fries… even though I’ve been vegan for over two years. I think this ends my baking for awhile. Though it’s as healthy as baking can get, I need to slow down with the food. BUT, first I must eat the chili cheese fries that I’m making ;)

100% gluten free. 100% cruelty free.

Many vegan people refer to this pyramid, but plenty of times I see them asking: WHAT IS A SERVING? Some examples:
1. Whole grains - one serving is equal to either 1 slice of rye bread, 60-80 g breakfast cereals, 50-60 g cooked grains (such as brown rice, wild rice, quinoa, whole wheat pasta) or 30-40 g of sunflower seeds. They give you energy for a long time - cut unhealthy carbs such as white bread and white rice.
2. Vegetables - a serving of vegetables equals approximately 100 g cooked vegetables and 200 g raw; vegans should eat a lot of green vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, brussels sprouts and kale (they are rich in iron) 
3. Fruits - one serving is equal to one piece of fruit, such as banana or big apple, 100-200 g of blueberries, raspberries or 150 ml of fruit juice. Don’t overdose on fruits, because they are quite high in sugar.
4. Soy, tofu and beans (proteins) - one serving is equal to 250-300 ml of non-diary milk, 50-60 g beans, 30-40 g nuts (walnuts and almonds are rich in proteins), 150-200 g tofu or meat alternative.
5. Other essentials - this includes healthy fats found in olive oil, flax seeds, chia seeds etc. Use them sparingly. Also, consider taking a B12 vitamin supplement (one tablet daily).
