This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

A deliciously protein packed pasta recipe made with nutty chestnut mushroom and protein packed quark. Quark is a great alternative to fatty dairy creams – it is fat free and high in protein – it is a great alternative. With added nutritional yeast, you get the deliciously cheese taste without the fat!

I have always had an interest for the healthy food industry, thehealthybeard started completely out of the blue – I started posting pictures of the breakfasts and desserts that I would make, within weeks my Instagram began to grow and people would ask me for the recipes. In 2014 I decided to quit eating animal based products and follow a plant-based diet and never looked back! My recipes focus on quick and easy plant-based dishes that are accessible to people. I love to inspire and encourage others to follow a healthy lifestyle. You can keep up to date with my recipes via my Blog and Instagram.
