Vegan spinach rice balls - high in protein and iron

I wanted to make something healthy again so I thought of a dish that's high in protein and iron as well. So these rice balls not only contain spinach, gram flour and almonds, all of which are rich in plant-protein and iron. And to boost the taste I also added black kalamata olives.

Vegan bacon - gluten-free, high in protein & super easy to make

I've been experimenting a bit and thought wouldn't it be nice to have a bacon alternative that's not mushrooms like in many other vegan recipes. Something that's very high in protein while at the same time vegan and healthier than real bacon with a similar texture. So I tried and tested and came up with this absolutely mouth-watering tofu bacon recipe.
