Favorite vegan snack recipes for Earth Day—and beyond.

April 19, 2016

Earth Day is coming up and while, yes, I know, everyday is Earth Day, I find that making a point one day a year is a helpful way to stress the importance of our relationship with the environment for young kids. One of the ways that I’m celebrating this year is by focusing on plant-based eating that day, this week, and moving forward.

Serving up a delicious plant-based snack (hello, vegan chocolate peanut butter pudding) is a great reminder to the kids—and myself—that eating a plant-based diet can be easy and delicious, even for us bacon-loving folk. And when I serve it along with other vegan goodies this week, I’ll also be sure to make a commitment to the kids to make these treats more in the year ahead, not just this week alone.

Well, except for the vegan Salted “Caramel” Dip. We already eat that like crazy.

Check out my five favorite vegan snack recipes (one of which doubles as an easy make-ahead vegan breakfast, too) and get in the Earth Day spirit with us. And don’t worry: These recipes are easy, accessible, and delicious—yes, even for kids. In fact, especially for kids. Because you don’t need to be a committed, full-time vegan or invest in expensive ingredients (that you’ll never use again) to incorporate some vegan and vegetarian delights into your diet.

Plus, you’ll learn, as I did, that vegan chocolate chips taste exactly like regular ones. Pretty cool.
