i’ve never had a post -gig & pre -college day before.
i’ve had quite a lot post – gig days, yes, but it happens i’ve never had a pre -college day before.
this is, because i’ve never been to a college until tomorrow.
yes, i attended a few courses at the university last year, but tomorrow is different. tomorrow i’m gonna be a freshman student at the FH, which is gonna be my real college for at least the next 3 years.
am i excited?
i also had a gig with “Oh, I Taste The Queen” last night, which means, it was waaaay cool, but today i’m really groggy.
my metabolism is quite fast, which means i naturally burn a lot of calories.
therefore i need some extra-energy when being exhausted- and of course, i expect it to be delicious!
though i want to eat healthy, mostly unprocessed & of course vegan food!
i’m simply concerned that my body can use this kind of food the best way possible.
more, i’m pretty nervous about tomorrow, which normally means i eat less. stress & unhappiness always lead to not feeling hungry & losing weight, wich i cannot afford.
taking that into account, i need my food extra-extra yummy on such an important day!
here is what i recommend:
sweet, crunchy, healthy. what more could a girl want?
why not get really naughty & combine the granola with a chai-coffee shake?
oh, and don’t forget the extra-energy.
i chose nuts (almonds, pecans, cashews) & mixed them into the granola.
i told ya, energy! 🙂
did you know i’m always craving fruit after a long night?
it’s as if the vitamins were calling my name.
i can’t escape!
speaking of vitamins: lots of veggies are perfect for a stressed out day.
for me, they just work, by not being heavy & saving me from having an empty stomach.
i figured i’m gonna need a lot of packed lunch when i’m in college.
so you tell me: what’s easier than bringing sandwiches?
therefore, i created my own SPREAD RECIPE today.
i’m sure you all know “hummus“.
see, even Zohan knows & loves it!
my boyfriends loves this movie! 😉
BUT, he had no idea what hummus was, until i explained it to him:
hummus, or “humus”, is a spread or dip made of mainly chickpeas. it’s savory & there are a number of different kinds of hummus. it’s very healthy, for it’s rich in protein, and tastes fantastically!
me, i had no chickpeas at hand, but what i did have, was LENTILS.
i really like the saying “everything in moderation“, cuz it’s true in most situations. as in my lentil-spread recipe!
it’s really easy & there’s a lot of room for taste – experiments.
and here it is:
“EVERYTHING IN MODERATION – SPREAD”
– 1 1/2 c. cooked lentils, drained & rinsed
– soy sauce
– salt, pepper
– spices: chili, oregano, basil, curcuma, majoram, garlic-powder, caraway-seeds; (omit what you don’t like & add what you like)
– a little water
1.) take the lentils & mash them with a hand-held blender
2.) add a little water & 2-3 T soy-sauce.
then start to add the salt, pepper & the spices you wanna use.
i used a whole lot of different ones. as long as you stick to “everything in moderation“, you can’t go wrong!
3.) that’s it! almost too easy to be called a “recipe”, huh? 🙂
no, i’m serious. just trust your tastebuds & try whatever you like!
this spread can be used as a regular spread on toast, bread or whatever, as a dip for veggies or tortilla chips or eaten by the spoonful!
i tried it on top of a cherry-tomato..
the tomato & me, we kinda liked it’s spread-hat! 🙂
oh, & because it’s the day inbetween 2 special days today, i thought i’d give you some extra-goodie.
maybe anyone is interested in my stage make-up?
it varies a little from gig to gig, but this is how i did it yesterday:
i always feel like a circus-clown before i enter the stage when being painted like this! 😉
tell me what’cha think about it!
so, wish me a good first day at college tomorrow!
