1. A couple of days ago I made this banana bread, inspired by the gorgeous @loveliveraw’s recipe. Although I made some slight changes, this bread is DA BOMB 💣😍
    Here are the ingredients I used - for full instructions please visit my blog (link is in bio):
    4 very ripe bananas
    200g buckwheat flour
    150g buckwheat, coarsely shredded
    1 Apple
    100g walnuts, coarsely shredded
    2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp vanilla bean
    2 tsp baking powder
    pinch of sea salt
    coconut oil

    Thanks again, Erika, for this great idea!!!!

     

  2. Bean burger patty

    Loving barbecues, I needed to come up with a broader variety of foods to put on except for corn, zucchini and mushrooms. I have a cookbook here and adapted one of their recipes so it’s vegan and gluten free.
    Here’s my version of bean burger patties:

    Ingredients:
    400g kidney beans, rinsed and tapped dry
    1 red onion
    1 garlic clove
    1 orange paprika
    1 jalapeño
    2 tbsp chia seeds
    2 tbsp tomato paste
    5…

  3. Vegan sour cream

    Amazingly, you can replace any non-vegan ingredients with a vegan and healthy substitute.
    I needed a sour cream for my bean burger patties and found a recipe on “Oh she glows”, linked to The Glowspot and added my twist to it:

    1 cup soaked cashews, preferably over night
    juice of 1 lemon
    filtered water
    sea salt, to your own taste
    a pinch of garlic and onion powder
    1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

    Put…

  4. Huge bowl of salad for tonight’s potluck. Will top everything with a dressing made of basil, tomatoes, salt, pepper, water and a bit of EVOO.
    Happy Saturday night and have loads of fun!

     

  5. Banana bread

    This recipe comes from a very inspiring young lady, Erika, chef at “Open New Doors” in Sweden.
    I scrolled through Erika’s Instagram feed and found this beautiful banana bread recipe which I have slightly adapted since I didn’t have all ingredients at home.

    Ingredients:
    4 very ripe bananas
    200g buckwheat flour
    150g buckwheat, coarsely shredded
    1 Apple
    100g walnuts, coarsely shredded

  7. HELP 😂 so, this is happening and I don’t have any idea what to do with it now. You gardeners out there, please give me a clue!
    I planted my sprouting ginger roots and now I have this plant that doesn’t stop growing. It’s growing like crazy - but I don’t know what I should do with it!!!! Any ideas and hints welcome!

     
  8. First 2 days of my #14daysraw are almost over and my 3 co-workers that joined me are still very motivated. One discovered digesting problems, though, so she decided to be #rawtillfour. That’s fine, never force yourself into things, always keep the fun!
    We made lunch together and had huge bowls of salad, for breakfast everyone was preparing smoothies. This is my smoothie from today, made of
    Fresh figs, nectarines, plums, mache, banana, oats and rice milk.
    For dinner I made a salad with avocado, chickpeas (soaked, not cooked), tomatoes and cucumber, seasoned with lemon juice, salt, pepper and fresh herbs.
    Happy weekend all over the planet!

     
  9. Hi guys! Something amazing has happened today and I need to talk about it because I’m actually pretty stoked 😄
    My coworkers have always been quite interested in my lifestyle and most of them already live vegetarian or at least very consciously. I have been asked several times where I would do another 14 days raw again and today I said I would do it any time soon. 3 of the ladies I work with are going to join me now! They decided to do that to help their bodies calm down, detox and make new experience. I am so proud of them because I can tell from my own experience going completely HCLFRV from being omnivore is quite a step. I made a list with dos and don’ts and shared my experience from last time. Thursday will be the day and who knows what kind of progress will start then - for me it was the last bit of going fully vegan.
    Spread the word, people. Live as bright example. People will follow you as soon as they see what it all changes and how you feel.
    Yes, I’m proud of those ladies!
    Oh, and yes, this is dinner tonight. Whole grain spelt pasta with marinara - one of the last cooked meals.

     
  10. The other day I made a vegetable soup. Also known as “Minestrone” 🍲
    My version is made of tons of veggies, cut and diced in perfectly bite sized pieces:
    Carrots, potatoes, kohlrabi, celery, green beans, onions, leak, parsley, basil, fennel (including the greens!) and filtered water. I don’t like using any store bought broths because there is usually too much nutritional yeast in there but I found one from @alnatura which is completely “free from” crap so I added a tablespoon of the broth powder to my soup just to enhance a bit. The other spices were sea salt and black pepper. That’s it. Since I used so many herbs, stems included, onions, leak and the greens of the veggies, this soup speaks for itself 😊
    Good Sunday night, folks!
