Fasting in various forms has been shown to have a number of health benefits and can not only prevent, but even reverse certain diseases. It gives your body a break, so that it can reset the digestive system and flush out accumulated toxins, leaving you feeling overall lighter and energized. On top of these main benefits, it can help you break unhealthy eating habits and stimulate fat loss.
I know, but I had to. I haven’t made up my mind about fusion food yet – it always feels a bit wrong to me. But when I found out about sushi burritos, I just had to try them for myself. And I think they not only look pretty, but are also pretty tasty.
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! 🙂
Winter time is soup time for me. And even though I don’t crave soup all too often, I sometimes need a warm bowl to nourish my body when it gets colder. This creamy potato soup hit the spot just right, as it integrates my favorite food – potatoes – in a healthy way.
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.
Guys, I have a confession to make. There is a possibility that I made this Alfredo sauce 3 times in the last 3 weeks and I’d be ready to make it again. This creamy vegan cheeze sauce is so flavorful and thick that it could actually pass as real cheese sauce.
Now that it’s getting colder, I am starting to crave these warm, hearty dishes, mostly containing pumpkin or fresh spinach. I was inspired on Pinterest and then just grabbed a pack of baby spinach on my next trip to the store.
Another salad before the summer is gone completely! This is also an easy vegan recipe, which you can bring to a barbeque or make as a side for dinner. And you can bring the leftovers to work for lunch the next day 😉 Ingredients: 200g uncooked lentils 1 apple 0.5 small red onion For the dressing: 1 tbsp olive oil 1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tbsp maple syrup salt & pepper to taste Instructions: Wash & drain lentils. In twice the amount of water, bring the lentils to a boil and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. Drain the remaining water and let the lentils cool off. Peel & chop onion. Cut apple into little cubes. Then mix both with the lentils. Mix all ingredients for the dressing and mix with salad. Zutaten: 200g ungekochte Linsen 1 Apfel 0.5 kleine rote Zwiebel Für das Dressing: 1 EL Olivenöl 1.5 EL Apfelessig 1 EL Ahornsirup Salz & Pfeffer Zubereitung: Die Linsen waschen & abgießen und in der doppelten Menge Wasser für etwa 5-10 Minuten köcheln …
Curry is a classic that everyone should be able to make! This is one of the dishes I did not have to adapt very much when going vegan because the only thing you need to do is leave out the meat or fish. If you want, you can replace it with tofu, but even just with veggies it will taste good.
One of my favorite summer salads and a perfect contribution for barbeques, this salad gives you the extra serving of protein! The creamy avocado and red onion go so well with the white beans, cucumber and tomato and the salad is super quick to throw together.
