Ok, keeping it serious, this bowl is a nice change from our regular breakfast meals and it great for anyone avoiding gluten. Besides this it is packed with complete protein from the quinoa and…
Here in the Netherlands it’s still winter, even though for some unknown reason I’ve created the illusion that winter comes to an end after December. As much as I’d like to fool myself, January and often February the temperatures are at an all time low, so we’re not done with the comforting and warming dishes.
Now don’t get me wrong, I adept quite well, so I don’t mind the colder temperatures that much, gives me even more reasons to eat pepper soup or warming breakfasts like this.
When my yoga teacher asked me to make some smoothies for her to serve to people during a yoga detox day I took my chance to introduce the people with a delicious creamy and lush smoothie, showing how delicious healthy vegan food can be, of course! Well I’d like to call this a mission succeeded because not only did I get a voice note saying the smoothies were delicious, Ive also been having this for breakfast the past three days, even my mom enjoyed it!…
Don’t throw away those nasty looking bananas that have been hidden away in your kitchen maybe even growing some mold on the skin. As disgusting as these bananas might look, they make a delicious component in this crunchy recipe. But not only this dish thrives from using over ripe bananas, you should try them in more baked goods such this banana bread or try making…
Chia parfaits are my go to lazy breakfast meals, they require little to no prep and are convenient since they can be made ahead of time. Not only is it an easy breakfast, but it’s also a filling and healthy way to start the day. Just don’t forget to check your teeth afterwards, chia seeds love hiding away between your teeth, they love it!
For this parfait I used home-made my own chocolate cashew mylk, but feel free to use store-bought plant milks. If you can find a vegan chocolate milk just add cacao powder and a sweetener to the chia pudding, I left the measurements in the recipe below. I’ll make a post on how to make your own plant milks from scratch, it’s super easy. Feel free to adjust the recipe to your own liking, try adding different fruits or maybe topping it with some coco whip, no ones judging you, treat yo selves!
I had these with a bunch of citrus fruits and called it a breakfast. I’ll be working on more different easy and affordable breakfast ideas asap, I mean chia seeds are great for the bod, but since they’re such a “super” food not the cheapest. Always feel free to leave suggestions in the comments below.
Also I’d love to see your recreations, so feel free to tag me in your pictures on instagram.
As I’m incorporating more “clean” foods in my diets and taking out the processed foods, I’ll of course be sharing fun and healthy recipes with all of you! To be honest I never really post smoothie or salad recipes as I consider them to be too simple, so no one would be interested. If it weren’t for one of my close friends, hi jazz, or my mom asking me for some inspo and telling me to share some recipes I thought, why not!?
Of course I can’t send you away by telling you to blend 2 bananas and a date, no this is not your regular smoothie, this smoothie requires a specific taste. I added black pepper and turmeric to not only give it a gorgeous colour, but this combination has many health benefits as well.
Another ingredient added to this smoothie might not be for you, but for me it’s a staple, it’s hot peppers, and in this case chili peppers. I added half a chili, simply to try a “mild” version which many people could enjoy, but since I’m partly dragon I would normally throw in a whole chili, seeds included. The flavors of the chili, turmeric and black pepper mingled perfectly with this green smoothie consisting mango, banana and spinach.
Now to the last and most notorious ingredients of all, CBD oil which is extracted from cannabis, and no it doesn’t make you high. I’ve been using CBD oil for the past couple of months, and never used it in one of my recipes, but today I thought, why not!? There are many discussions concerning the health benefits of this oil, but since I’m not an expert I’d recommend watching some documentaries or reading some studies. Also I’d like to note that CBD oil isn’t legal in every country, so you might not even be able to get your hand on it, no problem, just skip it!
This might not be your taste but since I’ll be focussing on eating more whole foods than ever before you, should stay tuned because there will be more smoothie recipes coming your way.
Have a blessed day and let’s start blending shall we!
Two for the price of one, who doesn’t like a good bargain! In this post I’ll share a recipe for both, a blueberry açai chia pudding and a raspberry oatmeal. Both recipes are super easy to make and quite delicious.
This breakfast is so fast that within minutes you’ll have a delicious and filling breakfast. I love adding warming spices to my oatmeal, but lately I’ve been having a huge frozen berry craving, especially in my oatmeal, it’s almost like adding a natural sweetener. You can add…
Granola is one of my breakfast staples, especially when I’m craving something crisp and sweet. Now since we’re sticking with the Halloween theme we’ll be making black granola flavoured with cacao and vanilla. All we need to turn this from brown to black is…
Since we have entered October it is time to share some Halloween themed recipes! For some reason Halloween has to be one of my favourite times of the year, probable because I am a huge fan of horror movies. So to celebrate this spooky holiday I’ve decided to…
