Cashew Coconut and Chocolate Protein Bites

Hey beauties,

lately, there hasn't been a day where I didn't snack on one of these. I love having healthy little snacks in the fridge so every time I get a craving I can easily satisfy it with good, whole vegan foods that give me energy and keep me full till lunch or dinner. These two are my favourites, cashew coconut and chocolate fudge! I'd highly recommend trying them with different nuts (like hazelnuts, to make a Nutella version or macadamia to make shortbread-style bites) and experimenting with different other ingredients, too! Use these recipes as a guide and adapt them to your likings, I'm excited to see your recreations!

Veganes Berlin - Das Rawtastic

Hey ihr Lieben! 

Heute melde ich mich mal mit einem deutschen Post, in dem ich euch eines meiner liebsten veganen Restaurants in Berlin vorstellen möchte. Es ist dabei nicht nur 100% vegan, sondern dazu noch 100% roh (das heißt nichts wurde über 47°C erhitzt!) und 100% lecker. Laura und ich durften uns quer durch das ganze Menü probieren und ich würde gerne unsere Erfahrungen mit euch teilen.

Matcha-Kombucha-Shots - Kombucha ist dafür bekannt die Leber zu entgiften, Krebs vorzubeugen und bei Verdauungsproblemen zu helfen, kombiniert mit dem bekannten japanischen Grünteepulver bilden die Shots die perfekte Grundlage für einen Tag voller Uni und Lernstress. Der Matcha Shot hat mir persönlich am zweitbesten Geschmeckt. Auf Nummer 1 kommt definitiv Ingwer und das Schlusslicht bildet Spirulina, der schmeckt aber wider Erwarten auch sehr gut!   

Wholegrain Vegan Waffles - simple and oil free

Hola guys, it's me again with another ... breakfast recipe! 

I'm happy you found your way here and I really you try this recipe out since it's the bomb, seriously. 

I just recently started making waffles and my first attempts to get them nice and crispy seemed to fail in many ways. They weren't fluffy or crispy or anything good. But after experimenting a bit with different ingredients and measures, I can finally present you my first vegan high carb low fat and super simple waffle recipe to knock you out of your socks. Ready?

Vegan Breakfast Bowl and A Little Talk About Minimalism

Hey you lovely people,

recently and thanks to my good friend Laura I've been reading a lot about minimalism and how decluttering, prioritizing and taking a step out of consumerism may - and will - affect your life positively. Over the last few months, I realized how happy I become when I just throw stuff I don't need away, for good. I became more aware of the fact that having less stuff will make you more organized instantly. You don't even have to worry about tidying up if there's nothing to tidy up. It just feels so good looking at a white wall, a white sheet, an organized desk, a clean surface. But if it was that easy, why is not everybody living a minimalist life? I thought about the issues I had and came up with my top two reasons why people choose to live in a cluttered space with endless piles of unused stuff.

Healthy Vegan White Chocolate Overnight Oats

When I first started to make my own breakfast I was having overnight oatmeal every single day for about 6 months, no joke. Back then I made it with cows milk and curd cheese which is not how I'd recreate it today. I actually made chocolate oats every day but last night when I prepped it, I felt like making these white chocolate oats with just cocoa nibs instead. And that was a winning decision.

Raw Vegan Spiced Walnut Cookies

Hey peeps it's me again!

So lately I've been into healthy eating and working out again. Over the last few months I kinda let that slip a bit and I noticed a decrease in my energy, bad skin, loosing muscle and so on. So I decided to hop back on track and start early with my new years resolutions this time. No more heaps of hummus (but still more than I should eat, probably), tons of white bread, vegan chocolate, candy and so on. But that doesn't mean I can't have great Christmas cookies, right?

May I present you the easiest Christmas cookies ever? These take literally 15 minutes. And with just 4 basic ingredients for the base you might even have everything on hand to make them right now. You should. Really.

Oh and I've got a new marble cutting board that will be my new fave back drop!

Now into the recipe...

The Perfect Veggie Protein Bowl

Sometimes it's hard to go to uni, have a job, volunteer, workout, have friends and a relationship all at the same time and try to find time to cook healthy, nutritious food that my mind and body love. In stressful times like the weeks before Christmas, when you're rushing from one appointment to another and rarely find the time to sit down, I find it more important than ever to make sure, you're feeding your body right. Cause how can you perform at your best when the foods you eat make you feel the worst?

I just recently discovered frozen veggies. I don't know why I never considered buying a package of frozen broccoli before but somehow I just missed hopping on that wagon. Yes, I know that was extremely silly of me because frozen veggies are now what some might call "life".

There is one dish I have been making quite regularly in the last few weeks: The Veggie Protein Bowl!

There are 4 main components to it and they are so easy and literally take 15 minutes to throw together!

The Only Raw Brownie Recipe You'll Ever Need

Hi guys, 

today I'm sharing a recipe with you that I've been partly making for years. It's my go-to raw brownie recipe. It's the only one you'll ever need. Once you've got this base, you can add anything into the brownies, starting with pumpkin spice over peppermint flavour, turning these into little bliss balls or cake pops, using it as a base for a raw cheesecake (check out my Nutella and Vanilla Mousse Slices), etc etc; the possibilities are endless! I hope I can inspire you today to get into the kitchen, whip up this super easy variation of the classic and get creative with what you have in your kitchen. 

I topped the base with a marble-topping made out of a raw-vegan chocolate buttercream and a homemade cookie butter (click here to get the recipe). 

In case you want to eat the buttercream by itself: DO IT. It's so good, I'd take a bath in it.

Winter Apple Pie Oats with Homemade Cookie Butter

Hey peeps, I'm back with another breakfast recipe (surprise, I might have to start calling me a breakfast blogger). This time, I'm presenting you an amazing flavour combination that made my mouth jiggle and my belly happy this afternoon. Wait, maybe this also counts as a lunch.

I want to tell you something: If I had to choose one 'naughty' food to eat for the rest of my life it probably would be cookie butter (or speculoos butter, however you say it) made out of these incredible delicious caramel cookies that I have been loving since the first time I tried them. So I once bought a bunch of these cookies to make a vegan 'freak' shake inspired by the lovely Naturally Stephanie and had quite a few left that were sitting in my kitchen just waiting to be transformed into cookie butter. The result was amaaaazing. Like really really good. And in combination with these Apple Pie Oats... I can't even.

Fall Morning Routine & My Favorite Superfood Açai Bowl

As the days get shorter, I also like to adapt my summer morning routine to a more calm & relaxed one; think candles, yoga and coffee.

My routine usually takes about 1-2 hours, depending on what I have for breakfast or how much time I had for my nights sleep. I know this seems like a lot (I know quite a few people who get up 30 min before leaving and rushing through everything as quick as possible) but taking this time for me in the morning has become very important. I like the feeling of having accomplished something before my "actual" day hasn't even started. It gives you the feeling of being completely in control of what you're doing. If that sounds stupid to you, try waking up 20 min earlier than you usually would this week and try it. Don't get me wrong, of course there are days when I stay in bed until the last minute and then brush my teeth while trying to do apply my mascara because I have no time, but usually, this is what I like to do instead:

My alarm goes off (I like to wake up to "More Than Ever People by Levitation") , like I mentioned earlier about 2 hours before I leave. I usually end up checking my phone right away (bad habit I know) and scroll through the messages and Instagram notifications I got during the night. Then I get up, make my bed and prep my espresso machine. While it is brewing, I take a shower and slip into some comfy clothes. I love wearing oversized t-shirts (in the summer) or sweaters (in the winter) with comfy socks.
