Cheat Day Vegan Burgers in Brisbane (mouth-watering photos included)

As much as we encourage everyone to live a whole food plant-based lifestyle to the best of our ability, there might just be those days when you want to treat yourself to a vegan burger.

Or you might want to impress your vegan-curious friends that vegan burgers might actually taste better!

It’s great to see more places adopting vegan options on their menus, and more good news – the vegan options are slowly getting upgraded to plant-based!

Let’s take a look at 5 vegan burger places we went to in Brisbane and Bryon bay!

Brewski

On Brewski’s menu, you will find the “Burgers for the plant-based” section with 5 amazing burgers:

  • BEEFLESS BURGER
  • VEGAN CHEESEBURGER
  • PULLED JACKFRUIT BURGER
  • ABC BURGER
  • PLANT SMASH BURGER

Their top seller beefless burger is also my personal favorite, but I’m sure you will find others just as amazing.

I also had to include their vegan nachos here because it beats all the nachos I’ve ever had!!

Besides the most amazing food, I also had a lovely chat with Antoinette, who told me all the effort that went into sourcing ingredients locally to reduce the environmental impacts of importing mock meat. I was so glad to hear that all the ingredients were ethically sourced, with lots of consideration concerning health, safety, and environment!

Highly recommend Brewski for your Friday nights, birthdays and any functions 🙂

Just Poppy’s

If you are going to try out every burger on Just Poppy’s menu, it’s gonna take you a lifeeeeetimeeee.

I’ve never seen a burger place with shocking 13 vegan burgers!

Certainly would keep your tastebuds satisfied if you are sharing different burgers with friends 😛

I loved the Catch of the day (fishless fish) and was blown away by how real the “fish” patty tasted! Definitely a treat for someone who used to love fish.

Plenty of plant-based, minimally unprocessed burgers such as Hommos to god, which uses a chickpea patty, The plant-based disgrace with a black bean and beetroot patty.

Just Poppy’s also has the most beautiful vegan platter, perfect for a group of animal lovers!

OH!! And this one is SPECIAL – Potato Portato using scallops as buns! – Very unique, very creative, very delicious!

Find Just Poppy’s on facebook and Instagram.

Grassfed

Grassfed is a new burger joint tucked away in the Fish Lane, brought to you by the amazing I Should Coco man behind the Brisbane vegan market scene.

They offer very affordable vegan burgers, as well as coconut-based icecreams!

This one is their biggest and most popular B.F.C burger, which will definitely make you happy on a cheat day.

Find Grassfed on facebook and Instagram.

VeganBurgz

How cool is a green burger?

I know. These green burgers just look so appetizing!

Stacks on was one of the 11 amazing vegan burgers and my favorite as it uses mushroom and eggplant instead of a processed patty!

Sweet-kale Roline is another must-try, made of sweet potato, chia seed patty, onions rings and kale!

Find VeganBurgz on facebook and Instagram.

Elixiba

Best is saved to the last!! Elixiba is the ultimate plant-based burger you can dream of – The bridge between health and social life.

It is currently located in Byron Bay and Sunshine Coast, but I’ve heard rumors that they will be coming to Brisbane soon!! Fingers crossed.

Hemp patty, jackfruit, massive sweet potato chips! All so yummy and healthy!

Elixiba also offers a range of other plant-based dishes that I wouldn’t call cheat meals, all made from healthy whole foods, satisfying both your taste buds and nutrition!

Find Elixiba on facebook and Instagram.

There you have it – 5 burger places you can go to on your cheat day! Remember not to do these toooooo often and base most of your daily foods around plant-based foods in their whole form 🙂

Remember – A small step towards plant-based vegan is a big step for health, environment and animals!

10 nutritious vegan staples for your pantry

Is an empty pantry your trigger for ordering some quick but unhealthy vegan fast food?

Do your staples include all the important nutrients?

Don’t worry, we came up with a list of 10 nutritious vegan staples that will nourish your body, and bring you amazing flavours!

Of course, 10 is no way near the variety we should be having. Fresh veggies, leafy greens and fruits should always be in your house, so we are not including them here. Instead, this list is for you to check if any of them is a surprise to you!

You will see “… of all colours” a lot in the list because some of the most amazing foods such as quinoa come in more than one colour. We often get questions like which colour is the best nutritionally and the recommendation we give is – Mix it up and eat them all!

Here we go!

Oats

vegan oats

Oats are not boring – they are probably one of the most versatile foods! You can make oatmeal, overnight oats, pancakes, cookies and even pizza crust with it. My view of oats was completely transformed after finding the ‘Oat Queen’ Maddie on Youtube. She cooks anything and everything with oats – soak, cook, bake, blend! You need to check out her recipes page and ebook “ALWAYS OATS”.

You might also ask which type of oat is the best? Steel cut oats are the least processed and most nutritious one, but take longer to cook. Rolled oats are softer and easy to make oatmeals with, also a good choice. Try to avoid instant oats if you can as they are the most processed. Here is an article that explains the different processing of these oats.

Sweet potatoes of all colours

vegan sweet potato

Purple, yellow, red, white, have you tried all of them? My personal favorite is yellow sweet potato, they taste the softest and sweetest to me. But of course, different colours indicate different nutritional profiles and you should definitely mix them up. Sweet potatoes are so easy to make yummy – chuck in the oven and come back when you smell them! Sadly they have gotten a bad rep because of the false information on carbs and weight gain, which couldn’t be further from the truth! Sweet potatoes are high in water and very filling, which actually makes them perfect for weight loss.

Give yourself a 5 minute Sweet potato facts 101 and you’ll be surprised by how nutritious and beneficial they are! Sweet potatoes even show anti-cancer potential as Dr. Michael Greger explains it here. Check out this amazing recipe on vegan stuffed sweet potatoes!

Berries of all colours

vegan berries

If you don’t have some fresh or frozen berries in your kitchen, you definitely need to stack them up. Their anti-oxidant levels are through the roof. Berries are also amazing brain foods, counteract the toxicity of pesticides, inhibit platelet aggregation, and reduce muscle soreness! Blueberries are especially beneficial for lowering cholesterol and heart health. When fresh berries are not in season, simply keep some frozen berries in the freezer. You can make healthy smoothies and berry jam with them!

Beans of all colours

vegan beans

Most people don’t eat enough beans and legumes, missing out on their amazing benefits for heart health, and a longer lifespanBeans are highly filling foods, full of complex carbs, fibre, and protein. You might not have much time to soak and slow cook beans, but you can always easily get canned beans with BPA-free lining! Through your beans generously to salads, stews, and Buddha bowls. The best thing about beans? They make the most amazing sauce: Vegan hummus!

So many recipes with beans, so many!!

Quinoa of all colours

vegan quinoa

Did you know that the UN named 2013 ‘International Quinoa Year’ to highlight quinoa’s high nutrient content? It has twice the protein content of rice or barley and is an amazing source of calcium, magnesium, manganese, B vitamins, vitamin E and fibre. Quinoa is one of the least allergenic  ‘grains’, a good wheat alternative. Quinoa also has an excellent amino acid profile with all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein source. So many more benefits of quinoa are listed here. Don’t know how to cook them? Check out these 17 vegan quinoa recipes!

Plant milk of all kinds

vegan plant milk

Before I went vegan, I only ever drank cow’s milk or cow’s milk powder. I never knew this whole new world of soymilk, rice milk, almond milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, oat milk, flax milk, hazelnut milk and pea milk! It’s a crazy discovery! You can even learn to make your own plant-based milk – healthy, cruelty-free and inflammation-free.

Brazil nut

vegan brazil nut

Just like the eye-opening variety of plant-based milk, Brazil nut is another discovery after veganism. It is the richest known food source of Selenium and has many other benefitsan essential mineral for a healthy immune system and nervous system! If you are experiencing any sort of inflammation, get a brazil nut a day. Be aware not to consume more than that though as too much Selenium is not good either.

Garlic

vegan garlic

Garlic is used a lot in Asian cooking for good reasons – they bring out amazing flavours and also have many health benefits. Garlic and flavonoid phytonutrients found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains can counteract the mutagenic chemicals found in cooked meat.  Interestingly, consumption of small amounts of garlic or raisins may even lower the risk of premature birth. Garlic is also a natural food against lead poisoning and platelet activation. Small amounts of garlic are already powerful, why not just put a few gloves in your stew or stirfry? Check out these 12 Vegan garlic recipes.

Veggie pasta

vegan pasta

What?! Veggie pasta? Yes you heard me right.

Did you know there is pasta made from black beans, chickpeas, edamame, peas? Most of the pasta that you buy off the shelf used processed flour, which is nowhere near as good as using plant-based alternative ingredients! You might want to go to a local farmer’s market or organic health food store to find these pastas though. Here are some vegan pasta recipes for you 🙂

Edamame

vegan edamame

The last one may seem odd – edamame? What even is it?

Edamame are basically just young soybeans harvested before ripe that you can buy shelled or in the pod, often in the frozen section of Asian supermarkets. They are gluten-free, low in calories, contain no cholesterol, added sugar and lots of protein, iron and calcium. You might be surprised that tofu is not in this list as a protein staple, guess what, edamame is more nutritious than tofu! So easy to make to, you only need to steam them with a few minutes and there you have them.

When in doubt, start with this beautiful edamame quinoa salad!

Vegan struggle – how to avoid unhealthy event food when the temptation is real

avoid unhealthy food at networking event

There must be some sort of healthy-ish plant-based food at the networking event…

Well even if there isn’t, I should be able to just refuse them…

Even if I just eat a few chips, I surely won’t stuff myself with oily snacks and voluntarily destroy my fitness goals…

. . .

Having these thoughts, I went to the career networking event for women in technology with full confidence, and here is my EPIC FAIL

. . .

The networking event was at a rooftop bar – nice vibes, loud music, everyone was already holding a glass of alcoholic drink when I got there.

I looked around the room, there was not a single person who wasn’t holding a glass, oh well I guess I’d be the first one as I really am not a fan of alcohol.

I started talking to people and Canapé started coming out one after another, populating the tables and making the whole place smell a m a z i n g.

catering food

A huge sushi platter came out first, without any dietary labels, it seemed to be a mix of meat, fish and potentially vego ones?

Busy in conversations, I couldn’t get the chance to talk to the staff to figure out whether anything was vegan, so I kept talking, but my eyes kept drifting to the food, judging whether they might be vegan or not.

Then a plate of deep-fried snacks came out: spring rolls, curry puffs and some Asian dim sims, accompanied with sweet chilli sauce and sour cream. I knew I shouldn’t eat any of those but as soon as someone said it is a vego/vegan platter, my eyes lit up.

spring rolls

I reached out for a spring roll, dipped in the sweet chili sauce, only a little bit, holding onto my last bit of rational thought that this deep-fried thing with processed sugar sauce wouldn’t make my body happy afterward (I’m very sensitive to bad food).

It tasted so good that I couldn’t help but reach out to the curry puff beside it, this time dipping a large chunk of it into the sugar sauce.

My rational brain is ringing the alarms but my primitive reward center is being overwhelmed by flavor and the impulse to just eat more.

O.M.G.

Look at those sweet potato chips, they look so tempting. Surely they are at least healthier than the normal chips because look at them, they are the SPECIAL SWEET POTATOES!

chips

I immediately took one. Wow, it didn’t feel too oily! Next thing I knew, I was taking one after another, non-stop.

“Rainie, stop.” – my rational brain

“It’s made from plants, though.”

“But it’s deep-fried and look at that salt!”

“But it’s the best thing I can find here…”

My mouth is talking (and eating), my brain is also talking. I felt unstoppable, totally out of control.

cant stop eating

O.M.G.

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, a whole plate of chicken wings and beef pies came out at the same time.

fried chicken

The people around me were excited, clearly wasn’t expecting so much yummy food at a free event.

I obviously was not going to eat any of that, but felt I had to eat something else instead…So I reached for more chips, spring rolls and curry puffs…

Finally, I couldn’t do it anymore. I’ve stuffed myself with a bunch of deep-fried finger foods, half bowl of the chips – what an epic fail.

I said to the people around me I had to use the bathroom and left the event. I didn’t know what’s going to happen had I stayed longer.

. . .

You can probably imagine the story from here, I was so disappointed with myself – the total lack of self-control. I thought…I thought I’d be able to behave better! I thought my taste buds and brain have changed to not be tempted by those foods!

sad

That curry puff tasted a bit like meat, was it even vegan?? Why did I feel embarrassed to ask?

Oh..my stomach is really not happy now.

I spent 2 hours feeling terrible, physically and mentally.

So I went on to a Facebook group “How not to die – Dr Greger 2.0” and asked for advice.

I am so glad I did. The responses I got were so supportive and educational – I realized so many people have gone through the same struggle, and we could do better!

be positive in life

7 tips on going to events and not end up like me

1. Eat something beforehand, never expect food at these events to be as healthy as what you can make at home.

2. Take some snacks with you – apples, nuts, homemade cookies etc.

3. Give the venue a call and ask for the menu before the event to be prepared.

4. (This one is my favorite) “You can always pull it out and ignore the sometimes rude looks or comments and know my health is more important than worrying about how I look not participating in the SAD (Standard America Diet) “.

5. Be mindful – try and think about the feeling you will get after eating that way. It never feels good right? Remember that guilt feeling.

6. (I also realized this one is so important)Be ok with the idea that occasionally you’ll be less than perfect – like Dr gregor who says some days he doesn’t get anywhere near his own dozen and there are situations where it’s just really hard to put together a healthy meal. Diet health is more about the long term not the odd snack or meal”.

7. You can always do better next time. It is a journey. Do the best you can in any situation. Don’t beat yourself up. Next day you can go back to whole plant-based foods.

. . .

I got up the next morning and read all 22 comments, feeling empowered again. Yes, I did worse than I wanted to. But I learned a valuable lesson and am stronger than ever. I made myself a healthy, beautiful oatmeal bowl and I feel great again.

healthy vegan oatmeal

Being healthy and plant-based is a life-long goal, it may not be possible to be perfect every day, but it should make you feel happy, healthy and fulfilled most days. If your will is not strong enough today, just learn from it and be a better version of yourself tomorrow. Reflect on your progress often, share your struggles with the community, and never burn out on your own.

I learned a great deal from this experience, and hope you can too (without going through the chips and spring rolls yourself haha…)

Top vegan places to eat in Brisbane: 2019 update

Are you a vegetarian, vegan, or just trying out plant-based foods? YES, why not? Healthy, cruelty-free and delicious!

 

I created a video featuring my top 5 places for yummy vegan food in Brisbane 3 years ago. Wow, time flies! Brisbane's vegan community is going strong and plant-based foodie places are shaping up.

 

Time to review my top 5 and see if any new places have caught my taste buds!

 

 

YUMM, Yep I still love those places. These mouth-watering photos on my instagram are the proof!

 

Number 5 - Botanica

Botanica is the living proof that salads don't have to be boring at all! They have a variety of different salads ready to go everyday, definitely a good go-to when you want some yummy salad takeaway!

 

Number 4 - The Green Edge

A vegan hub - cafe, restaurant, supermarket, everything vegan! Completely guilt-free when you walk down the aisles at Green Edge 🙂

 

Number 3 - Super Roll

Super Roll will probably move up my list (probably because of my Asian blood). Their mock fish made of cabbage is the best and I can never get tired of it. I have been there so many times and tried many things on the menu, not a single dish has disappointed me so far! Definitely try it out if you are around the Sunnybank area.

 

Number 2 - Vegeme

Vegeme is also one of my staple place, maybe because of their punch cards that keep getting me back? Nah, I was joking. The food itself is amazing, plus the friendly staff, nice environment and the punch card reward 🙂 My favourite dishes there are cold tofu, inari, okonomiyaki, dumplings and bibimbap.

 

Number 1- Vege Rama

At Vege Rama, you get the experience of fine dining with a reasonable price 🙂 They always have new specials on the menu that keep getting me back - they are healthy, creative and well-presented. You can also drop in for a coffee, smoothie or desserts anytime.

 

What's my new favourites?

Charlie's Raw Squeeze 

You might know Charlie's fresh food market or açai bowls and smoothies. I know they are great, but have you tried their rainbow wraps yet? If not, you definitely should! I go back for Charlie's rainbow wrap over and over again. It's full of colourful fresh ingredients and tastes more than amazing.

 

Slice Pizza & Pasta

Although this place is tiny and easily missed in the busy westend area. They offer the most delicious vegan pizzas! A whole range of mock meat and vegan cheeses that I have never tried before. It is definitely a treat to your tastebuds, but of course, not too often!

View this post on Instagram

How to turn a friend vegan? This pizza is the answer 😉😇😇 Taste: 9.5/10. I can't decide but this has to be the best pizza I have ever tried in my life. Presentation: 9. Would of given a 10 if there was a bit more toppings. Health: 5/10. Well it's a pizza. The combination of flour, chess, oily sauce and processed mock meat means its a once in a while treat. #vegan #veganfood #vegansofig #plantbased #veganism #veganlife #govegan #whatveganseat #veganfoodshare #vegansofinstagram #vegans #vegano #vegangirl #crueltyfree #veganfoodporn #veganrecipes #veganlifestyle #veganpower #veganshare #veganeats #vegancommunity #vegetarian #veganaf #veganfortheanimals #foodporn #healthyfood #veganlove #healthy #food #dairyfree @askveganpalette

Dicki's

Coffee, brunch, afternoon tea, or wines, Dicki's got all you want plant-based! The cooking style is light on oil, definitely one of the healthier places!

 

JoJo's 

A special mention of JoJo's because even though it is not a specialised vegan restaurant, their vegan dishes are among some of the best, no worse than those served in vegan restaurants! Check it out and you'll be surprised.

 

Green House Canteen

"Cruelty-free and Killing it" is the slogan of Green House Canteen - a place full of inspiration and love. The food there is always beautifully presented, in very LARGE portions! All plant-based and super healthy 🙂 It's probably the closest thing you can get to home cooking. Plus, you can ask for no oil!

Grass Fed Vegan

"Latest Plant Based Burger Joint in Brisbane"  a fresh twist to what burgers should taste like, you won't even believe how close to meat it taste like - you will love the interior decor. Everything served has no meat, dairy, cheese, seafood, whatsoever, ALL VEGAN 🙂

The best tool every vegan should use to talk about veganism

iron veganism cartoon

How to respond to the ignorant and hurtful comments on your “non-filling”, “deficient”, “flavour-less” vegan meals is probably one of the most annoying things that every vegan has to prepare for at some point.

 

Have you ever wondered why it is still so hard for vegans to eat in peace, despite all the documentaries, research, slaughterhouse videos, celebrities, news articles all talking about veganism loud and clear?

 

It is still generally considered that vegans have to give up many enjoyable things in life to love animals, locked away from all the yummy foods. Why?

 

Miki Mottes, a vegan illustrator who made Simple Happy Kitchen, raised a good point. Maybe all the public is seeing is the disturbing despite truthful images of slaughterhouses, but not so much of the enjoyable, and nutritious food we have.

 

If you think about it: how did the meat, tobacco or milk industry lure us into buying their products? – Relaxing, sweet and fun campaigns. The milk ads often involve adorable babies, the cigarettes ads often elicit a relaxing feeling and the meat campaigns do it the best – they zoom right into the splashing juice when grilling a steak. Aren’t these just irresistible?

 

If there is a more gentle, fun, and easy way to tell your friends, or the haters, about veganism, how will you feel?

 

I would be so relieved. I don’t have to waste my time showing the truth for the 1000th time to that colleague who just never wants to take my words! I don’t have to go find some corner and eat my lunch alone just to avoid communication on this topic!

 

Miki understood that for more people to understand our lifestyle, and that we don’t suffer from just eating plant foods, we have to show them veganism is fun, simple, and nutritious.

 

SO..She turned

…into

She turned this boring bar graph

into…

Her illustrations are simple, uplifting, evidence-based, and easy for anyone (even the stonehearted) to take in, bits by bit.

 

And guess what? If you are struggling to explain vegan nutrition to a friend, your little one, or simply anyone, Miki has cool illustrations like this one:

 

Now. Do you think people will feel we are suffering from this vegan diet? Do you think people will say we are just imposing our beliefs onto them?

 

For the health of humans, animals and the planet, we need to keep doing the good work we are doing telling the truth, living the life, but also showing how enjoyable this lifestyle can be!

 

We need to be intelligent at the approach we use to spread the love, and Miki has offered us great tools!

 

You can freely download Miki’s Protein, Calcium and Iron printable posters here, even in different languages!

 

We should thank all the vegans out there for doing the great work protecting the animals, the planet and human health. If you would like to support Miki’s gentle approach, check out her book How to go vegan – the simple happy kitchen.

 

I hope you all find this tool helpful, and keep spreading the love!

Map of the Vegan services in Brisbane

Vegan Palette Resource_ vegan services map brisbane

Inspired by the Map of the Queensland innovation ecosystem, I created a special map for the vegans in Brisbane!

 

The Map of Services Available for Vegans – Brisbane is here to support all current vegans and those transitioning to a vegan lifestyle. The purpose of this map is to make the services and initiatives more visible to support vegan experience in Brisbane.

 

My hope is that by showing how extensive our support network is, more fellow vegans and vegan-curious friends will be excited to be on a journey of Health, Love, and Purpose.

 

Vegan Palette Resource_ vegan services map brisbane

 

This map captures both local and online services offered by national, international vegan communities, local business and societies, education institutions, non-governmental organisations, individual and group activities in Brisbane.

 

Work in progress and missing logos

There are so many great organisations involved that support a vegan’s journey. Some will be missed from the map, and many embarrassingly obvious. If this is you, I am really sorry, please comment below or send me an email at raymond@veganpalette.com.

 

Scope and context

The scope of the map is Brisbane, but also includes some services in Queensland, or worldwide. I highly recommend each region to have their own version of the map, to improve vegan experience Australia wide. Please feel free to use this map as a template.

Next steps

The map is not perfect, and I am sure there are missing services. But in the interest of shipping over perfect, it will do for this release and I will keep updating it based on your feedback.

Your feedback is welcome and appreciated. Please contact me via one of the following means:
