Pancake Sunday

It’s Sunday! <3 Which means it’s time for pancakes, right? People always ask me for a recipe for my pancakes but honestly I don’t really use any recipe and just put together the ingredients by feeling. Anyway, I decided to measure the ingredients for you today and to write down a little recipe. Probably one of the easiest pancake recipes ever.. For one pancake stack you will need: 1 ripe Banana 100g of your favourite flour 150ml of your favourite plant milk 1tbsp corn starch 1tsp baking powder Mash the banana with a fork and put it in a bowl.…

What to love about winter and how to stay positive & healthy during this season.

It’s beginning to look a lot like christmas..❄️⛄ I know, many people don’t like winter and really struggle with staying happy and positive. Some people get seriously depressed during that time. I’m a person that loves winter (not driving through snow with my car though..). There are a lot of things to love about christmas time and winter time in general. However, not gonna lie – I often struggle with keeping a positive mindset during this cold and dark season as well. So let me share with you a few things that help me to cheer up and that make…

Identity Crisis.. at the end of my 20s?

When you are in your teens, you are confused. You don’t really know who you are or who you wanna be. You know that it is normal and you believe that you’ll have it all figured out once you’re and adult and “grown up”. And here I sit, more confused than ever.. For all my life I’ve felt this weird inner “identity conflict”. I feel too versatile to feel steady. I like so many different things that don’t really fit together and I get thrilled by different things, different ideas and different lifestyles so easily. One day I’m obsessed with this…

French fries are unhealthy? Forget about that..

I wasn’t sure if this is actually worth a post but then I decided it is because: So many people complain about French fries being so unhealthy and having lots of calories and fat and that this is the reason they don’t eat them. Good news: You do not have to deny yourself French fries! Potatoes themselves are actually a health food, full of good stuff such as vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin C and fiber. They also contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. At the same time they are low in calories and contain no cholesterol or fat. French fries…

If you were someone else, who would be you?

Often you want to be someone else. To have another person’s amazing life, looks, experiences, partner, friends, job,.. don’t you?  But is this actually true? When you think about it: Being someone else also means giving up everything you have. Giving up all the people in your life, all your own talents, all your little flaws that make you lovable, all your memories and experiences, everything you’ve struggled with and mastered so far,.. giving up yourself as a person. You wouldn’t be here anymore, all your very own thoughts and feelings would simply disappear because: If you were someone else, who…

Getting into meditation: My experience with “Headspace”

I’ve heard a lot of people, especially happy and successful people, talk about what benefits they get from meditating regularly. Even my ex-boyfriend was always meditating when we were together and I saw it was doing him good. I never meditated in the past. I sometimes tuned in some guided meditation on my laptop before going to bed to be able to fall asleep easier. This works really good for me but I wouldn’t really say that I was meditating as the purpose of meditating isn’t to fall asleep, I guess.. A few weeks ago I heard about the app called “Headspace” for the first time.…

There’s more to health than just diet and exercise.

A lot of people that approach a topic such as health, mainly talk about eating a healthy diet and working out but leave everything else aside. In my opinion, the mental components are so underrated although I believe that they belong to the main influences when it comes to being healthy. I just came home from another trip to Morocco this week and I realized once again what positive effects trips like this one have on my health. Everytime I’m travelling, I feel better than when I’m at home although my diet may not be as healthy as at home or I may not work out as much. On…

Should vegans date non-vegans?

When you are a vegan, often the question comes up if you would date someone who is not vegan. For me personally, the answer is 100% yes. When I went vegan, I was still in a relationship with a non-vegan. And no, veganism was not the reason for us breaking up. The fact that I went vegan actually never affected our relationship in any negative way. Of course, everyone is different and I can understand vegans who say that they couldn’t be together with someone who has a different point of view on a topic which is such a big part of their…

Create more, consume less.

In our today’s society, instead of being creative, we tend to consume a lot because there are lots of possibilities for consumption: TV, radio, internet,.. The last couple of months, I myself have been consuming way too much to be honest. Videos, articles, podcasts,.. Okay, to be fair – I guess I needed this during that time, to get inspiration and new ideas. To learn about other ways of living and what others do to grow and fulfill their dreams. Now it’s enough though. I realized that the main reason for consuming wasn’t anymore to learn or get inspired but just…

What we think we become.

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” – Buddha I’d like to share with you some of my thoughts on the law of attraction and my experience with it. You’ve never heard of this law? Well, basically, this quote of Buddha above says it all but here is good definition that I’ve found: “The belief that positive thoughts are magnets for positive life experiences and negative thoughts are magnets for negative life experiences. Based on the law of attraction, if you have a specific desire and…
