Hot Chocolate – Vegan & Healthy

This is a post for all my fellow chocolate lovers out there.. A while ago I started replacing my morning coffee or tea with hot chocolate on some days. So I thought I’d share my recipe with you as it’s so easy and delicious. Most people immediately think of the unhealthy chocolate flavoured powder for milk drinks when they hear „hot chocolate“. This is not what I mean when I say hot chocolate, I’m talking about the „real deal“ made with cacao powder or even cacao beans which you ground yourself first. This kind of hot chocolate is actually pretty…

Staying healthy and fit while traveling isn’t possible? Sure it is! Here are 12 tips that hopefully are helpful for you: Make Health A Priority I guess, the most important thing is to start your travels with the right mindset. If you’re already telling yourself “oh, once I’m on vacation, I probably won’t be eating healthy or work out anymore anyway”, this probably is what’s going to happen. On the other hand, if you decide for yourself to keep your healthy lifestyle or at least quite a healthy lifestyle while traveling, you’ll find a way to make it happen only due to…

Vegan Bounty Berry Crumble – Coconut Heaven

Weekend to me means treating myself to some extra delicious breakfast. So today I had some yummie berry crumble which I decided to name “Bounty Berry Crumble” as it actually tastes like Bounty.. just with berries. In the past I actually ate non-vegan crumble quite often and I used to make it with a lot of butter – which we all know is bad for your health and the animals, right? I’ve already made vegan crumble as well – with vegan butter – but today I decided to try something new as I didn’t have any butter at home anyway. So here we…

Creamy Tahini Zoodles with Tofu

As you might know, I absolutely love tahini! I actually wrote a whole blog post about why I love tahini so much, you can find it here.

My first vegan demo.

Today I took part in my first vegan demonstration and loved it! <3 I decided to share my experience as I can imagine that a lot of vegans would like to take part in something like this but maybe are a little sceptical and afraid – which I can totally understand. The demo I went to was organized by Animal Rights Watch and was “peaceful” demo – so no screaming, throwing things at people, getting naked, acting like dead animals,.. you know what I mean. We were basically just writing our reasons for being vegan on signs and were holding…

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.…

Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers.

I asked you to ask me some questions on Instagram a while ago and actually got quite a few.. I’m going to answer them in German and English as I got questions in both languages. Oh and by the way, before I start: I also have a Tumblr account (plantifulalexandra) so there is always the option to ask me something there, even anonymously. So, let’s start answering.. Why and why did you start with Instagram? I actually scrolled down to the start of my account for this: I started in May 2015. And why? Well, I’ve been looking through Instagram already for…

My Favourite Smoothie Recipes

I have never really been into smoothie bowls or smoothies. I had a smoothie here and there in the past but I wasn’t the biggest fan to be honest. I rather had a big bowl of oatmeal or nicecream than a big smoothie bowl. As I somehow, really don’t know why, developed a love for smoothie bowls this winter, I decided to share with you my favourite smoothie combos. They are all incredibly easy and you probably laugh when reading the “recipe” but as I often get asked for recipes, I decided to share them anyway. Note: of course you can…

My 3-day juice cleanse experience.

I’ve heard so many people talking about their experiences with juice fasting or juice cleansing, whatever you may call it, so I decided to give it a go. Definitely not to lose weight because that’s not what fasting is about and even if you lose some weight, it’s not sustainable when you don’t eat a healthy diet for the rest of the year. I simply wanted to do this out of curiosity, I’ve never done anything like this before. As I said, I’ve heard a lot about it – good and bad things – so I wanted to try it myself to…

Vegan DIY Advent Calendar

  [English Below] Ich dachte, ich schreibe diesen Beitrag mal auch auf Deutsch, da es sich ohnehin hauptsächlich um deutsche Produkte handelt, die ich für den Adventskalender benutzt habe und das daher für Leute aus Deutschland vermutlich doch relevanter ist. Ich wollte gerne einen Adventskalender für meine Eltern füllen, was sich vegan doch gar nicht so einfach gestaltet, da die meisten kleinen Weihnachtssüßigkeiten von den gängigen Marken eher nicht vegan sind. Meine Eltern leben zwar nicht vegan, aber natürlich möchte ich mit meinem Geld dennoch ungern nicht-vegane Produkte unterstützen. Ich habe mich daher auf die Suche nach kleinen Dingen gemacht,…
