Vegan Broccoli Black Bean Fritters “high protein snack”
Vegan Broccoli Black Bean Fritters -“high protein snack”. It’s getting busy again, the first year students are slowly arriving in Almere and the next study year is waving.
Yesterday I met Marrit, one of the coordinators of Slow Food Youth Network & we had a cozy Korean dinner at her place. The potatoes and vegetables from her garden. Good food, a rainy day and a cozy place, conversations over food, cows which save the world and bear with green tea. It was simply a nice but also productive evening. We talked about upcoming projects and events & managed to get our schedule full with exciting stuff. A lot of which you can look forward as well 🙂
Not only this happened yesterday, but I also decided to cut back with dairy and any other animal-sourced foods. Basically going vegan for my own groceries. I was always an active person I did Judo, Danced and played soccer. When I was around 16 I started going to the gym and even got myself into freeletics & even CrossFit. The mantra that came with it was that I need a certain amount of protein for every meal. For me as a veggie that resulted in a high consumption of dairy. Now I want to try to see how my body responds to the change. I will definitly keep you updated.
This is definitely a good source of good plant based proteins coming from the beans, lentils and the tofu.
