I love to start my day full of energy! I stretch my arms and yawn while I put on the kettle and squeeze some lemon juice in my cup. Green tea with a piece of fresh ginger and lemon juice is what I like to wake up to!
Of course it doesn’t take long for my stomach to wake up too! And a breakfast that always puts a smile on my face (even on Monday mornings!) is a freshly made Açaí Bowl!
Portion: 2 bowls – or 1 😉
Ingredients: For toppings:
2 frozen bananas 1 handful of goji berries
300 ml coconut milk Rasped coconut
1/2 medium mango 1 handful of Granola
1 handful of spinach Raw cacao bits
1 hand full of blueberries Chia seeds
1 handful of raspberries Blueberries
teaspoon maca powder
spoon of Açaí
Place the bananas, coconut milk, half a mango, spinach, blueberries, raspberries, maca, spirulina and Açaí all in one strong blender and blend until smooth and creamy! If its a little too thick just add a little extra coconut milk! Pour the mixture into a large bowl and just simply add the toppings! If you want to make it extra healthy and delicious check out the recipe of my homemade granola to use as a topping!
I already cant wait for my Açaí bowl in the morning! Enjoy my loves!X
I have been vegan for quite a while now, and I personally feel like it is the best diet for me. It makes both my body and mind happy! Many people believe that becoming a vegan is very hard and repetitive. – The amount of times I got told “all you vegans eat are salads”, but actually the opposite is true! Becoming a vegan gives your creativity a boost and you will be surprised of how many things you can do with a single ingredient!
Since I started the vegan diet my body feels so much lighter and more energised! As I am a big food lover I also love the fact that I can eat as much as I like knowing that I am feeding my body with healthy energy! Trust me, you will get just as full from this vegan burger compared to a meaty burger! The only difference is that you will not feel fatty or bloated afterwards! Instead you have just fed your body a whole load of healthy bean protein!
This is one of my favourite burger recipes that I love to make! Its easy and full of nutrition! Both your mind and body will love it!
To make 6 burgers you will need:
- 250 g of lentils
- 100 g of brown rice (I also use black rice which makes the burger dark red! But of course you can use any rice thats in your cupboard)
- Tablespoon of vegetable stock
- 100 g breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon of oregano
- Half a tablespoon of curry powder
- Bunch of basil
- Coconut oil
- Whole wheat buns
Cook the rice in 200 ml of water until cooked.
While your rice is getting ready cook the lentils in a separate pan. Let the water boil then add the vegetable stock and the lentils. Cook until soft.
When ready drain both the lentils and rice and mix together in a large bowl.
Cut the basil in small pieces and add this to the rice and lentil mixture.
Then also add the breadcrumbs, oregano, curry powder and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Mash all the ingredients together until everything is smooth and sticks together.
Now you can form the burgers in nice round equal patties!
Put on a pan with a teaspoon of coconut oil and bake them equally on each side until golden!
Place them on your burger bun, add slices of tomatoes and salad and you are ready to take a bite!
