Is money stressing you out? It stresses us out too. We use a system that keeps money off the mind, AND in the bank and we wanted to share that with you!

10:42
Eamon & Bec's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DB5ZJD9aaWg Because we all live the vanlife, we tend to get a lot of the same questions, like where do we park, or how do we heat the van, or do we ever feel unsafe?

Eamon & Bec are two of our very dear vanlife / YouTube friends, and if you haven't subscribed already, GO DO IT!

WHAT WE EAT IN A DAY | vegan vanlife + recipes
 
10:59
We loved making a What We Eat in a Day Video last time, so we thought we’d make another one! I've loved figuring out how to make vegan food over our van life travels. The limitations are a challenge, and I think we're getting better and better! Our favorite dish to make for a while now has been pad thai, and I've figured out how to make an awesome vegan version (I don't promise that it's authentic, though). Let me know if you try it! _________ RECIPES: Oatmeal Recipe: 1 1/2 cup of oats 2 1/2 cups of water 1 chopped apple 1 tbls. of peanut butter 5-6 chopped dates 1/4 cup of chia seeds 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp vanilla 1/4 cup coconut sugar Add everything together and cook until thick. We served it with cacao nibs on top. Pad Thai Recipe: 1 package of rice pad thai noodles 1 package of very firm tofu 1 onion 1 bell pepper 4-5 green onions 2/3 cup soy sauce 2/3 cup water 1/3 cup brown or coconut sugar (can substitute agave) 1/3 cup rice vinegar 1/3 cup tahini 1 tbls. red or green curry paste 1 tbls. sesame oil 1 lime (optional) sesame seeds or crushed peanuts Cook the noodles as instructed by the package. Cook tofu in a frying pan with a splash of olive oil and soy sauce. I usually cook these until crispy. After tofu is finished, add chopped onion, chopped bell pepper, and chopped green onions to the tofu. Cook until onion is translucent. While that is cooking, make the sauce. Mix soy sauce, water, sugar, rice vinegar, tahini, curry paste, sesame oil, and lime juice. When tofu and vegetables are finished cooking, add cooked rice noodles, then pour the sauce over the top. Cover and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. Serve with an extra lime on the side and some sesame seeds or crushed peanuts on top! _______ Follow us: Instagram: https://instagram.com/mnmlmillennials https://instagram.com/aubrymatney Twitter: https://twitter.com/mnmlmillennials Facebook: https://facebook.com/minimalmillennials Music by our friend Brandon Padier: https://brandonpadier.bandcamp.com/releases

VEGAN VAN LIFE THANKSGIVING | w/ Eamon and Bec!
 
11:58
How did we manage to celebrate Thanksgiving with vegan food living the van life? We'll show you! This is our first vegan Thanksgiving so it was a little bit of a challenge (especially with the limitations van life puts on us all the time) but I hope you like it! We especially loved the vegan mac-and-cheese. WOW. It was so freaking good. Do you do van life? Or are you vegan? What are your plans for Thanksgiving??? __________________ Mac-and-Cheese Recipe: INGREDIENTS: 1 bag of macaroni 1 1/2 cups of cashews 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast 1 cup of vegetable broth 1/2 of an onion, chopped 1 roasted pepper 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional) 1/2 tsp smoked paprika Cook pasta according to instructions on the package. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender. Blend together until smooth. Pour over cooked and strained macaroni noodles. Serve with some extra paprika and/or cayenne on top. Enjoy! Inspired by Minimalist Baker: https://minimalistbaker.com/vegan-green-chili-mac-n-cheese/ _______________ Cranberry Apple Sauce Recipe: INGREDIENTS 3/4 of a bag of cranberries (or as many as you would like) 2 chopped apples (you can use apples too) 1/4 cup of chia seeds 1 tsp. vanilla 1/8 cup agave (or any other sweetener) water Add all ingredients together. Pour water over the top until you see it peeking through the cranberries and chopped apples. You really don't need that much, just enough to help it cook down. Cook (stirring at intervals) on medium-high heat until you can't really tell the difference between the cranberries and apple. Add more sweetener to taste. Enjoy! _______________ Pumpkin Balls: INGREDIENTS: 1 can of pumpkin 1 1/2 cups of oats 1/8 cup of flax seeds (or any other seeds/nuts you like) 1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut 1 tsp. of vanilla extract 1/4 cup of sweetener of your choice (we used agave) 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/1 tsp. ginger 1 tsp. nutmeg Blend oats dry to make them into a powder. Add to a bowl. Add everything else to a bowl and mix together. (I'd recommend adding half of the can of pumpkin first and adding more as you go to achieve your desired moistness.) Make mixture into balls and roll in coconut or crushed nuts or anything else you want on the outside. We LOVED these with maple syrup on top and mixed with the cranberry apple sauce! ________________ Follow us: Instagram: https://instagram.com/mnmlmillennials https://instagram.com/aubrymatney Twitter: https://twitter.com/mnmlmillennials Facebook: https://facebook.com/minimalmillennials Music by Joe Bay: September: https://soundcloud.com/joe-bae-4/september

WHAT WE EAT IN A DAY [van life edition] / vegan / easy / nutritious
 
10:06
Making our food in the van needs to be really easy because we have limited space to make the food, limited burners on our stove, limited space in our fridge, and we have super limited time. Plus, we're vegan! So here are three vegan, nutritious meals that take 30 minutes or less to make, that taste awesome too! AND follow us around while we explore Mt. Rainier. _______________________ Energy Balls Recipe: - 1 1/2 cup of dry oats - 2 heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter - 1 tbls. agave - 1/2 cup of coconut flakes - 6 dates chopped up - 1/4 cup of cacoa nibs or dark chocolate chunks chopped up - 1/4 cup of flax seeds - 1/4 cup of chia seeds Mix together well. If the mixture isn't wet and sticky enough to ball up, add more peanut butter and/or agave. Refrigerate for 30 minutes (I didn't and it worked okayyyy but it will be easier to form into balls if it's refrigerated). Form into small balls and you're done! _______________________ Follow us: Instagram: https://instagram.com/mnmlmillennials https://instagram.com/aubrymatney Twitter: https://twitter.com/mnmlmillennials Facebook: https://facebook.com/minimalmillennials _______________________ Music by Evan Schaeffer: https://soundcloud.com/evanschaeffer/aqueduct https://soundcloud.com/evanschaeffer/bright-side Music by DJ Quads: https://soundcloud.com/aka-dj-quads/wonderful-world

08:02
While celebrating Christmas, we decided to make our own vegan versions of our family's favorite holiday meals. All of my siblings are non-vegans, so I wanted to see what they think of vegan food! __________________ Mac-and-Cheese Recipe: INGREDIENTS: 1 bag of macaroni 1 1/2 cups of cashews 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast 1 cup of vegetable broth 1/2 of an onion, chopped 1 roasted pepper 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional) 1/2 tsp smoked paprika Cook pasta according to instructions on the package. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender. Blend together until smooth. Pour over cooked and strained macaroni noodles. Serve with some extra paprika and/or cayenne on top.

5 WAYS MINIMALISM CHANGED OUR LIVES | minimal millennials

We're proud to announce that we are going vegan! Still very much in the transition phase there, but we thought we'd give you guys an update after a couple weeks in. We'll also slowly be making the transition to zero-waste, but that will be a slower process. Have anymore insight for us? Comment and let us know your thoughts! Music by our friend, Brandon Padier.

MOVING INTO OUR HOME | returning to minimalism Subscribe: http://bit.ly/subMinimalMillennials | Follow for daily updates: https://instagram.com/mnmlmillennials When we first moved into our van conversion, we quickly became less and less minimalist. We didn't curate the items we had so as to only have the things that add value to our life. We got comfortable allowing things into our life that didn't need to be there. SO, as we return to van life (moving back into our van), we also return to minimalism. And in this video, we talk through why and how.

3 STEPS TO AN ETHICAL LIFESTYLE
 
09:31
For the environmentally conscious person, it can be so easy to feel the pressure to do it all at once - veganism, minimalism, zero-waste, ethical shopping, sustainable energy, etc. Guess what - you don’t have to! Here are our tips for how to move in the right direction starting today without having to make any huge changes. We are a vegan, minimalist, low-waste, sustainable energy couple, but we didn't start that way and we don't necessarily think everyone should be all of those things, especially not all at once. We started bit by bit. First, we decluttered our lives and became minimalist. After that, we decluttered our eating and found that veganism really fit within our paradigm, so we became vegans at the beginning of 2017. We moved into a van and now have a home that is 100% powered by solar energy, and we are increasingly decreasing our waste with the goal of soon being able to be functionally zero-waste. That's our journey but yours might look totally different, so be encouraged to make a little change in your life today! You never know what could become a big change in the long run!

Thanks to Squarespace for sponsoring this video! Go to to http://squarespace.com/minimal to save 10% off your first purchase of a website or domain. We have a major van renovation coming soon! Before we kicked off our van build series, we wanted to share the three biggest things that we would now change about our van having lived in it for around a year. These three things are the focuses of our upcoming van conversion. We will be creating a huge seating space for guest and modifying our van for better hosting, we will be leak proofing the van and better insulating to be better prepared for extreme weather, and we will be modifying our storage space to better fit the belongings we actually have. We hope this video is helpful and keep an eye out for more conversion videos coming soon!

WHAT WE EAT IN A DAY | vegan van life (asian inspired!)
 
12:57
We LOVE cooking in our van, but we really have to have some go-to vegan meals to make it doable. Van life can make cooking a little bit more time consuming, but it's still really fun! In this video, we share with you what we eat in a day including some of our classic vegan van life favorites (like buddha bowls and cranberry sauce), and explore new recipes like vegan ramen (RECIPE BELOW). _________ CRANBERRY PEAR SAUCE 3/4 of a bag of cranberries (or as many as you would like) 2 chopped pears (you can use apples too) 1/4 cup of chia seeds 1 tsp. vanilla 1/8 cup agave (or any other sweetener) water Add all ingredients together. Pour water over the top until you see it peeking through the cranberries and chopped pear. You really don't need that much, just enough to help it cook down. Cook (stirring at intervals) on medium-high heat until you can't really tell the difference between the cranberries and pear. Add more sweetener to taste. Enjoy! __________ VEGAN RAMEN 1 onion (chopped) 5-6 mushrooms 1 stalk of bok choy 2-3 green onions 2 cloves of garlic 1 bell pepper vegetable broth 1/3 cup soy sauce 1/2 tbls. green curry paste 1 tbls. miso water ramen noodles Saute all vegetables in a medium-sized pot with some olive oil and green curry paste. Once onions are translucent, add a combination of water and vegetable broth according to how much water your ramen noodles call for (so if it calls for 3 cups of water, add 2 cups of water and 1 cup of vegetable broth). Add soy sauce and miso. Cover, raise to high heat, and wait until it boils. Once boiling, add ramen. Cook for as long as the ramen calls for. Once ramen is done, serve! ___________ Follow us: Instagram: https://instagram.com/mnmlmillennials https://instagram.com/aubrymatney Twitter: https://twitter.com/mnmlmillennials Facebook: https://facebook.com/minimalmillennials Music by: Brandon Padier: https://brandonpadier.bandcamp.com/releases DJ Quads: https://soundcloud.com/aka-dj-quads/happy-feeling
