Chia pudding, the best dessert ever! :)

Standard

2013-10-01 14.11.43Do you often crave something creamy, tasty and sweet but you want to stay on the healthy side and get something nutritious and easy? I think I have something for you then… :) I am not a fan of exact recipes, but here you are and idea of how to prepare such a dessert!

What do you need? 

1/4 cup Chía seeds*

1 cup Veggie milk (I used home-made almond milk, but you can also buy it)

1 ts Maple syrup (or any other healthy alternative)

Cinnamon

A little bit of lemon juice

 

What to do? 

Mix al the ingredients together and leave for 10-15 min in the fridge.

Stir again and check the taste and consistency. Bear in mind that the chia seeds will grow and get slimy…

You can eat it now or leave it a bit longer in the fridge for more consistency and flavour! :)

Just enjoy it!

 

Other suggestions:

You can try your own version adding cacao nibs or chocolate powder, carob, coco, grated zest, raisins… Be creative, the sky is the limit!

I did also with fruit juice, crazy… hahaha I love it too! :)

 

Did you like it? I like so much tha tI normally have a big bowl at home and I have a portion everyday… :) If you try it let me know how it goes, please! I want to hear from you!

 

Big hug and much love,

 

Sara

 

 

*Chia seeds are a great source of omega 3 among other things. They will make you feel full without feeling guilty ;-) I use them a lot to replace eggs and in deserts. You can buy them on healthy stores

Eating healthy @Gitanekesfoor, lots of options!!

405586_468343946584014_1824370572_nAt the beginning of September I went working to a nice gypsy circus and music festival in Belgium, Gitanekesfoor. As always, I had planned most of my meals in advance but fortunately I had also left some room for nice surprises! :) 

The catering in the festival was much different from most festivals I’ve been to… Organic fries, vegetarian balls, gluten-free pancakes, watermelon, fresh made juices or home-made pizza among other dishes definitely upgraded the experience of all us! :)

Here you are the most vegan, gluten and sugar-free options!

This little caravan assisted by 4 lovely Dutch girls   very tasty pitas filled with fresh salad and all kind of veggie balls. Since I don’t take any gluten, they offered me a dish with falafel and salad, OMG, sooo yummy!!

Unfortunately I don’t have a picture, it didn’t last long on my plate… hihi. Thank you girls, you are doing an amazing job!! Good luck and hope to meet you again in any other festival!

You can find them here www.vegametballen.nl  and on FB!

De Sappentrapper:

Have you ever ridden a bike to get your own fruit juice? This this I don’t mean to take your bike to get to the store, hehe. Now it is possible! This creative company gives you the chance to make your own  fresh made fruit juice that you blend yourself at the same time you practice some exercise… Plus it is very ecological because they don’t need any electricity! Amazing, right? :)

Well, this is me preparing my morning juice! Could not be happier… :) If you want to have such an experience contact them through his website www.sappentrapper.be or via FB

I will not say much about it because it deserves a whole post for itself! This cooperative not only uses organic products from A to Z but it is also completely vegetarian with some vegan options! It is true that fried fries are not super heathy, but the whole concept involves a very conscious alternative…

At last but not least, milk and gluten-free pancakes (baked with bookweit)! Ok, true, they contain eggs (so they are not vegan), but ehh, that’s already something, right? :)  Plus their friendly staff you can put on top of your pancake whatever you like!

Well, that was it! Thank you all for giving us so many wonderful alternatives for a more eco-healthy-friendly world! Wish you luck, hope to see you (at least) next year again! :)

New “ME”… Celebrating change!

Standard

Yes, as you might have already noticed September is the month where everything re-starts… School, work (for many of us), projects, and why not challenges? Let’s take it as a second change for a new begin! :)

IMG-20130830-WA0005

This is me, well, my new me! The difference? My awareness… I feel much more connected to my body, isn’t it great? I think so… :) This summer I had the chance to go back home, disconnect from everything, spend some time with my friends from high-school & attend a lovely wedding with some of them, spend a lot of time with my family and follow an intense raw cooking course that has completely changed my life! It is said that we are who we are, that we don’t change; it is also said that if you don’t like something you can change it. I say “We can’t change our essence, we simply  grow and evolve…” (at least that is how I like to see it…)

All this to say thank you for being there and grow together for a healthier & better world where love always wins and we always get what we want! Follow your dreams, do not give up and stay tuned, you already have all the answers inside of you! ;-) Follow your inner voice!!

Btw, in the picture I am @ Fres Co (www.frescco.com) in one of their restaurants in Madrid. They offer their buffet all over Spain and you can choose from a large variety of salads (among other things).  The best? it is raw, vegan, sugar and gluten-free for les than 12€! I is not organic, but a great option for dinning out!

I will be back soon with more meals on the GO!

Big hug and much love,

Sara

 

Eating healthy at the airport??? Yes!!!! :)

Image

IMG_0286Normally I am quite organized and I manage to bring some healthy snacks with me when I’m traveling… However, this time it was a bit of chaos, and I forgot to prepare my lunch, hihi. HELP! Everybody knows an airport is not the best place where you can eat healthy on the go…

Fortunately I knew that at Brussels airport a tasty fresh juice was waiting for me… :)

It’s name is”energetic morning” and it made my lunch! Hahaha 35cl of carrot, root beet, ginger and apple juice…. Of course that is not enough food for a proper lunch, but together with a healthy nut bar I got enough fuel to get to my next destination, home….

How do you manage when traveling???

Big hug and much love,

Looks nice, right? It was!!! I didn’t have much time today for lunch, but I was craving some good stuff! So, I opened the fridge, this is what I found…!

Lettuce, avocado, spinach, radish, carrots and courgette!

How could I make it shine? Well, I made a light pesto with the radish leaves, lemon, a bit of oil, tamari and water and added a few hazelnuts and other mixed seeds… Simple right? It is!!! It just took me 15min to get my meal ready!!

Still missing something? Add some herbs and spices! My favorite? Cinnamon… Mmmmmmmm

Do you want more? Don’t miss my posts ;)

Have a wonderful day!!
