A few months ago, I was scrolling through Instagram looking to follow new influencers to brighten up my feed. In doing so, I stumbled upon the happiest feed I ever did see, Veggie Peggy! With just one glance at her feed, I instantly felt happy and ended up scrolling through her account for a while!
What I love about Peggy is that she is a mental health advocate, fitness enthusiast and vegan food blogger! I immediately had to reach out to see if she was interested in brightening your day with her energy and sharing a delicious vegan recipe!
If the photo didn’t give it away, Peggy is sharing her famous Sticky Sesame Cauliflower dish, perfect for those cooler months ahead!
Take it away, Peggy!
My name is Peggy Exumé and I run a blog called VeggiePeggy, where I share healthy recipes, mental health tips, and fitness motivation on various social media platforms. It is a space where I promote nourishing the mind, body, and spirit; a topic I am passionate about because just six years ago, I struggled with depression, anxiety, and binge eating. It took some time for me to figure things out and become healthier, and my “Aha!” moment occurred when I finally understood that health is not just about “food and weight loss;” they are all interconnected. Yes, what I eat matters, exercise matters, but the thoughts I have about myself matter also, and making time for self-care and joy matters too!
It wasn’t a health journey of perfect choices, but one of slow progress and holding myself accountable in making better choices for optimal living. So, as I continue to live a lifestyle of making healthier choices, I have developed a passion for encouraging others to do the same. From food to fitness, I love to share tips and inspiration for wellness and better living. And that’s where this recipe comes in!
Sticky Sesame Cauliflower Recipe
These cauliflower bites are a great way to add more vegetables and flavor to your diet while skipping the cholesterol and unnecessary processed fillers we find in so many products we might consume. You can make these bites as an appetizer, or make it a full meal with a side of rice, or double your veg intake by adding a side of steamed broccoli and mushrooms. Either way, I think you will enjoy these delicious bites!
Well, there you have it! A super easy and simple vegan recipe, with cauliflower as the star ingredient. If you test out the recipe make sure to tag @veggiepeggy and @jillian.harris on Instagram!
