A casual scroll through Aussie plant-based blogger Taline Gabrielian‘s Instagram (AKA Hippie Lane) features smoothie bowls topped with star-shaped fruit, veggie sushi with vibrant pink beet-tahini dipping sauce, and lavender nice cream. It’s almost enough to make your favorite health food blogger’s photos look like #fails.

Gabrielian moved away from eating meat four years ago, when she was pregnant with her second child. Like a lot of mamas-to-be, eating for two made her think more consciously about what she was putting into her body. She gave up eggs, wheat, and soy in addition to meat. Since then, she’s been having fun creating beautiful things to eat, proving a (mostly) vegan diet doesn’t have to be restrictive. And fortunately, she’s not keeping her recipes a secret. Here, the blogger shares with Well+Good readers her most double-tapped breakfasts.

Keep reading for three yummy—and seriously beautiful—morning recipes from Hippie Lane’s Taline Gabrielian.
