If you grew up in Germany, there is a good chance you grew up with Nutella. In our house, we always stocked at least one glass of Nutella and it was a sweet & constant part of my childhood. I remember when I visited my grandmother after kindergarten, she would make me a bread roll with butter and Nutella while I was watching The Simpsons. 🙂
I am at home for the holidays and am enjoying the slow mornings and late breakfasts here at my mom’s house. One of these grey and gloomy mornings, I got up and felt like having a warm and indulgent breakfast, so I gathered a few ingredients and whipped up this gooey warm and creamy porridge.
It’s been a while since I published the last recipe for energy bites/bliss balls on this blog and I figured gingerbread flavor would be appropriate right now. These bites are packed with protein and perfect for a pre- or post-workout snack, or an afternoon bite with a cup of coffee.
The first time I discovered Poké Bowls was actually after coming to Amsterdam for the first time. I love the taste of vegan sushi, but am too lazy to make sushi myself often and don’t want to go out or order it every week. This sushi in a bowl tastes just as amazing as sushi itself, but is much easier to make, so it’s a quick win for me!
If you’re still looking for a breakfast for Christmas, I have the perfect suggestion for you. These gingerbread pancakes are based on the first gingerbread pancake recipe I posted, but I topped them off with some fried cinnamon apples & pieces of gingerbread. They taste like Christmas on a plate! 🙂
When it comes to cooking, I’m lazy. If there is any way to avoid a pile of dishes to clean up after, I will choose it. So naturally, I gravitate towards one-dish meals and shortcuts like this mugcake. You can whip it up in one mug and eat it straight out of there!
This roasted chickpea kebab is a recipe for the lazy vegans (like me), who want a quick meal without elaborate cutting & cooking. All it takes is cutting open a flat bread, marinating and frying the chickpeas and throwing everything in the bun together. It’s perfect for weeknights and probably classifies as “fast food” while still being sort of healthy! 🙂
To prepare for the current Christmas craziness of overeating on candy, I did a sugarfree November, where I cut out all industrial sugar (meaning white sugar in chocolate, drinks, pastries and so on). This was tough for about 2 weeks as I was strongly craving my afternoon treat, but after those first weeks my body got used to it.
If you are anything like me, you could eat oats every morning without getting tired of them. I don’t even need much variation – I am just looking forward to my chocolate oats from the moment I wake up.
I love chickpeas because of their consistency and versatility! You can make hummus out of them, marinate them or roast them with spices. Chickpeas are rich in fiber, protein and manganese and can help to increase satiety, boost digestion and help to keep blood sugar levels stable. They are a real multitalent for the vegan diet!
