Welcome to episode three of the Home with Willow Podcast! Last week we discussed transitioning to a plant based diet. I spoke a little bit about my own journey, some reasons for making the transition to a plant based diet, and my top tips for making the process a little bit easier.

So this week, I’m continuing that discussion by answering all of the questions I got over the past few weeks about plant based diets. So on today’s episode, I’ll be strictly doing a Q & A session – answering all of your amazing questions I got from Instagram and Facebook. There were a ton of great questions here that I believe a lot of people have been wondering about so… I’m pretty excited to answer them!

Questions Answered in this podcast:

  1. “I’d love to have some super cheap/simple plant based meals for times like now, where I’m very low on money. I’m currently living off bagels, pb&j, eggs, & tuna fish.” – Taylor

Easy Watermelon Sorbet Recipe | Home with Willow | Katie Emmitt

 

     Summer is definitely the best time for fresh fruits & veggies! There’s nothing better than a big fresh, juicy watermelon cut up in the fridge to snack on all day, make smoothies out of, and freeze to make watermelon sorbet! Not only is watermelon delicious, it also has some great health benefits. In honor of National Watermelon Day (August 3rd), I’m sharing my Easy Watermelon Sorbet Recipe!

     Homemade watermelon sorbet is so easy to make and only requires two ingredients. It makes a fantastic snack, dessert, or breakfast! No ice cream maker needed! Scroll down to get the recipe.

high protein plant based smoothie

 

     Alright guys, this is my ABSOLUTE favorite high protein plant based smoothie recipe. This is my go-to for mornings before work where I need something quick and super filling. 

high protein vegan smoothie ingredients

     The other benefit to this high protein plant based smoothie is that once you grab a bag of each of the ingredients, all you need on hand is a banana & some plant-based milk (which are staples for me every grocery trip). My go-to is almond milk, but you could go with soy, cashew, hemp, oat, hazelnut… I could go on and on (but that’s for another post!) So while buying a bag of hemp protein might cost $20 initially, you’re looking at 45 servings, which roughly equates to .44 cents per serving of 11g of protein! (This smoothie is also my go-to when I don’t have much on hand, but I still have my staples).
