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! 

Eating RAW in… Antwerpen! @eten vol leven – What a Wrap! :)

Here I am eating raw food one more time, where? In Antwerp again! It seems to be the paradise for raw eaters in Belgium, yesssss! I spent a week working in this beautiful city with not much time to cooking or whatsoever… Fortunately I did some research and I discovered “eten vol leven” a great “ORGANIC JUICEBAR – RAW FOOD KITCHEN”!

What I ate? A wrap made with love and “sur demande” (I kindly asked for no cucumber and they put some apple instead…). I don’t really remember the ingredients, but for less that 8€ I had a tasty raw organic wrap! (Very ecological too as you can see in the picture).Photo0163

So, if you live in Antwerp or are just doing some tourism around, don’t miss the chance to visit this cozy establishment and enjoy a meal full of love!

Thanks a lot for your service and “veel succes”  ♥

Eating healthy @Gitanekesfoor, lots of options!!

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!

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!

Do you want to know more about them? Visit www.vzwkatapult.blogspot.be!

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! :)

Eating raw food in… Antwerpen! @ Seed of Life > Holy Smoke Burger, yummmi

Image

IMG_20130808_150319 (2)Two  weeks ago I had to go working to Antwerp everyday so I decided to explore de city in a culinary way! This is my first experiment: eating a Holy Smoke Burger from “Seed of life”, the first superfood store in Antwerp!

Curious? Well, it was not only me saying how good it was… My colleagues who are not used to healthy food certified its tastiness! :) Raw, vegan and gluten-free, what else can you ask for when you have a limited diet and want to eat out? Well, I have to add that although it was not cheap (14€), the ingredients were fresh, the burger was fulfilling and the owner was very very nice.

If you are ever around in Antwerpen and want to have a great raw vegan meal, this is one of the places to go! I highly recommend it, it is a great experience! (you just to look at my face to see how much I enjoyed it, hihihi)

If you need more information, please visit their website or contact me! http://www.seedoflife.be/ (they are also on FB!)

Big hug and much love!

Strawberries? Yes! Where? In Antwerp! Nice…

Sin títuloNot that long ago I had to change trains in Antwerp, where surprisingly for me I found a strawberry stall! :)  “Lekker en Gezond” (Delicious & Healthy) was the name of the stand where other fruits could also be found :)

It’s great to see that healthy stuff is conquering public places such as Antwerp’s Central Station! :)

I have discoverer quite some juice places in Belgium I will be posting regularly in this blog, so if you want to discover them, stay tuned! :)

Do you know any other places where you can find fresh food around you?

Big hug and much love,
