Why I ditched the vegan label.

First of all: This will probably be the longest blogpost I’ve ever written but please make sure to read it all if you want to understand where I’m coming from. After you’ve done that feel free to judge me or unfollow me on social media if you still feel like doing so. Thank you. Oh and don’t worry, this is not the next “my vegan diet made me sick that’s why I quit” kind of story and it also has nothing to do with other vegans who’ve recently quit veganism but with all the personal changes I went through the…

Ethical, Sustainable, Organic – organicbasics.

[Werbung / Advertisement, discount code below] “We think that the fashion industry is a real dirty bastard.” That’s what organicbasics says on their website and I agree. There are so many bad things going on in the fashion industry from using unsustainable fabrics to inhumane working conditions and even child labour. Fortunately more and more brands want to see a change happening in this industry and produce sustainable and ethical clothes. Personally I like to buy most of my clothes second hand if possible but I can’t say no to supporting ethical brands and enjoying some new beautiful clothes with…

Outback Australia, an unexpected experience.

I’ve been pushing off writing this blogpost for quite a while now. I really feel like sharing my experience of living in the Australian outback. On the other hand I’m not too sure what to talk about as there isn’t too much happening out here – unless you travel around a lot maybe which I don’t. I feel that there’s been a lot more happening and changing inside of me than around me. So a lot of what I’ve seen and experienced here is quite personal and I don’t want to talk about everything to be completely honest with you.…

How do I afford to travel so much?

 „How do you afford to travel so much?“ A question I get quite regularly so I’m touching upon this topic as I like to talk openly about these things and I always appreciate it when other people do. First of all: No, I’m not rich, I don’t have rich parents and no one but me pays for my travels. Before doing lots of travelling this year I haven’t really been anywhere for 2 years after my last trip to Morocco in 2016. Back then I finished studying, got a job and stayed in that job (which I hated btw..) for…

Intermittent Fasting? Diet Update.

A few months ago I talked about why I’m not practicing intermittent fasting. In case you wanna read about this first, you can find the blogpost here. However, sometimes your eating habits change because of your current life situation or just because you choose to try something new. So actually right now I’m kinda practicing intermittent fasting by accident, just that it’s not breakfast I leave out but dinner. Before you judge and say it’s unhealthy, I only do it to lose weight etc. – wrong, that’s not the case at all. First of all: I actually never got the…

Bali: Vegan & Vegan-Friendly Café/Restaurant Recommendations

[Werbung / Advertisement] After spending the past 3 months in Canggu, Bali, I would like to share with you the places I’ve eaten at to give you some ideas about where to go for food if you’re vegan and plan on visiting Bali. I also got inspired by others who shared their experiences with vegan cafés and restaurants while staying in Bali. I think it’s super helpful and I’m always grateful to find some recommendations when travelling to a new place. Just so you know: To most of the more “fancy” cafés and restaurants I got invited but not to…

Finland – 3 weeks of solo travelling.

Finland – why Finland? A question I heard countless times this month.. I know it’s not the most popular country to visit. It’s up in the North, so no hot weather or fancy white beaches. What you get instead: Lots of beautiful forests, lakes and stillness. Well, I love the North. I already travelled to Sweden, Denmark and Norway before but Finland was still missing. I always wanted to visit Finland, it’s as if this country was calling my name.  I think my interest in Finland actually started with my love for metal music and with listening to lots of…

Why I don’t practice intermittent fasting.

Someone asked me about my thoughts on intermittent fasting so I’m gonna share them with you. First of all: Just because I do not practice what’s typically understood under the term “intermittent fasting” does not mean that you shouldn’t do it. Everyone is different, it may work super well for you. It also depends on what situation you are in. What time you get up, go to bed, what job you are in, where you live etc. So why do I not practice intermittent fasting? 1. I LOVE breakfast, I always did. It’s truly something I look forward to in the…

Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers. Pt. 2

This week I asked you to leave me some questions for a Q&A here on my blog. So here are my answers to your questions: 1. What are you most excited about now that you quit your job? You would probably think of something like “travelling, finding my dream job,..” but no. Actually for me the most exciting thing is to have the whole day for myself, to wake up thinking “Ok, so what am I gonna do today?”, to be able to go for a run when the weather is good, to say yes to events and meeting people just…

Raw Almond Chocolate Brownies

It’s the weekend – time for a yummie chocolatey treat! <3 I usually don’t really create recipes like this one but I thought I’d just give it a go. I know that in general the basic ingredient for raw brownies is dates.. or well, at least I think so. Correct me if I’m wrong. So I played it safe and didn’t go crazy with this recipe. I never use complicated recipes myself as I’m way too lazy for those, so why would I make something complicated myself anyway? You will need.. Brownies 300g dates 200g grounded almonds 3 tbsp cacao…
