Join superstar nineteen-year-old activist and motivational speaker, Haile Thomas, as she demos two of her delicious, nutrition-packed vegan recipes from her new book, Living Lively: 80 Plant-Based Recipes to Activate Your Power and Feed Your Potential.

Islander Lively Bowl: Both of my parents are from the Caribbean, so I’ve grown up appreciating the magic that happens when sweet and savory ingredients come together. The combination of smoky mushrooms, sweet pineapple salsa, coconut undertones, and supporting acidic and savory pops of flavor is what makes this bowl so divine. And don’t you dare skip out on the cilantro aioli—it is cooling, creamy, and simply the real deal.

Carrot Cake OO: I looove carrot cake with my whole soul. This recipe is a great way to eat “cake” for breakfast without really eating cake for breakfast. ;)
