Eating Vegan in… Ghent! @ Avalon!

Standard

Dagschotel Avalon

Two weeks ago I had a very spacial visit, my friend Olga from Budapest! After a very nice but rainy evening around Ghent we wanted to eat something… Where should we go?!?! Well, she’s fine with everything, but for me it is not that easy to find a vegan place where I can also eat gluten-free! Fortunately Avalon was still open by the time that we got hungry :) 

They do have menu but we went for the “Dagschotel” or “today’s speciality” and we got this amazing dish full of tasty veggies and quinoa, all organic! I could not say what I liked the most, it was all amazing! 

Do you want to know more about this place, visit their website: www.restaurantavalon.be

I highly recommend it if you want to eat very good (and feel full afterwards) at a reasonable price, 15,60€ (for such a delicious vegan and organic dish was is not much, right?)

If you visit then I hope you enjoyed as much as I did! Smakelijk! 

Big hug and much love,

Sara.es on the GO!

Almond bread, you wanna try it! Vegan & GF!

Standard

 

This almond bread is the “star” of my recipe blog in Spanish “Candirecetas“. It is a great alternative for a gluten-free version with tons of proteins and good fats! 

Wanna give it a try? Vegan Almond Bread

Cooking time: +/-10′ preparation + 1h in the oven

Portions: 4-6 servings

difficulty: very easy

What do you need? a beater, oven platter, mixing bowls, oven

Dry ingredients:

  •  400gr. Almond flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon chia
  • Salt & Herbs

Liquid ingredients

  • 3/4 glass water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juice

 

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven up to 180ºC
  2. Stir the chia together with the water in a big bowl and leave it for about 10min.
  3. Mix the almonds together with the selected herbs and salt.
  4. Get the oven platter ready, maybe with some oven paper or spreading some oil so that the dough doesn’t get stuck.
  5. Mix the lemon and the baking soda in a glass.
  6. Stir de chia and pour de rest of the liquid ingredients (lemon + baking soda & oil).
  7. Step by step add the almond flour to the liquid ingredients. It can happen that you get a thick porridge or a consistent dough you can shape (don’t worry every time I get something different!)
  8. Put it in the oven for about one hour and enjoy it!
Suggestions: pan almendras canela
  • You can prepare it salty or sweet. You can give it a plain almond flavor or add other spices such us oregano or cinnamon!
  • Raisins or dates can upgrade your sweet version ;-)

Eating healthy @Gitanekesfoor, lots of options!!

Standard

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!!

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! :)
