15 Vegan Treats To Upgrade Your Cheat Day With


I’m only allowed one cheat day a week, so this usually means I spend half my week fantasizing and counting down the days until I can go wild with my recipes.

But do you ever eat your indulgent cheat meal and not feel so good afterward? Every cheat meal left me bloated, sluggish and generally feeling not very good at all. And that’s what inspired me to make my cheat day a little bit healthier with these vegan treats:

Who doesn’t love a good muffin? And when you’re vegan, it’s quite hard to prepare one!  But with playing around with ingredients you can make the perfect one! And that taste of carrot is different, which is what I like the most about this recipe.
