2 posts per day?

yes, this is my 2nd post for today.

a little earlier i asked myself if it was cool okay to do 2 posts on 1 day.

fact is, i don’t know if there are any “rules“, so i’m simply gonna make it okay!

i think i’m gonna be pretty busy the next couple of days, considering that i’m giving a concert with my band “Oh, I Taste The Queen” on saturday, a long rehearsal tomorrow and the FH (college) starting on monday.

therefore, i take the chance and use this probably last lazy evening in a while to write more and more posts.

this posts topic is simple, savory and still yummy! (sorry, all you savory foods, but i’m just more the sweet kind of girl. always will be, ever was. not to take it personal on you!)

these 2 recipes are both easy and quick to make:

1.) SALAD-STYLE GRILLED VEGGIES

–> need some side dish containing veggies? here you go! all you need’s a pan, your fav. veggies, spices, oil & vinegar.

by the way, did you know that vinegar is good for you?

as Katie already mentioned on her blog, vinegar can help you

– alleviate joint pain and stiffness, arthritis, and weak bonea

– remove toxins from the body by helping to improve bowel irregularity

– clear up skin conditions and blemishes, giving one a smoothier complexion

– break down fats for easier use in the body

– alleviate heartburn and headaches

– circulation and blood flow

– regulate blood pressure and metabolism

quite cool, huh? 🙂

also, i really like the taste. if you don’t, feel free to leave out the vinegar and just go with the oil!

i was really lazy & used:

– 1 zucchini, sliced in halves

– chopped green pepper

– some cherry tomatoes, sliced in halves

for the taste (these are just examples & what i used):

– salt

– pepper

– chilli

– oregano

– other spices

– 3-5 T of any vegetable oil

– 2-3 T apple cider vinegar

* 1-2 T pure lemon-juice

–> just turn on heat & grill your veggies as long as you think it takes! i prefer mine slightly brown:)

2.) SPICY PROTEIN-PAN

a recipe as easy as the above one, that can be served as main dish.

the beans provide you with protein, the veggies do the rest. another really lazy meal, but nonetheless delicious and satisfying.

get a pan. again.

now, just add:

beans, cooked, drained & rinsed

– some pieces of zucchini, peppers and whatever you have at hand

* feel fry to add some peanuts, sunflower- or pumpkin seeds

vegetable oil (i used olive oil)

soy sauce

* vinegar, if you like

* pure lemon-juice, if you like

– pepper

– chilli

ginger powder

– basil

then, make these thingies sweat. 

(sorry, for the poor quality)

i really loved this dish!

so much for the healthy fast-food.

today i got some quite cool things from “DM”:

dried figs

spelt flakes 

amaranth pops (i used them for my “double choc. muffins” and my boyfriend loved the taste of these lil’ goodies! thumbs up!)

flax seeds, shredded

– huge packet of trail-mix (yep,along with the dried figs, one of my top 3 snacks!)

also, i needed some vegan make-up and stuff. 

i’m happy to have found the “alverde” brand at “DM”, the products are great and they are cruelty free!

 this is

– powder

– kajal

– mascara

– volume shampoo

– make-up remover (yes, you’re right: not in the picture!)

so,

this was my second and last post for today.

let’s get back to bed!

xo,

“Bananarama” & “Chilled Summer Salad”

me again! 🙂

wooah, it’s really hot today.

I know i promised you some hot savory meals/recipes, but i’ve got 2, in my opinion very strong, excuses, besides the weather, of course.

Number 1 is a recipe i adapted from Katie (yes, once again..but i can’t help it- this girl’s a genious!).

I made some very small changes, and called it

“BANANARAMA”

everyone who enjoys  loves peanut butter but thinks it’s a little too “heavy” or dense will love this recipe, as long as he/she likes bananas. but hey, who doesn’t like bananas, right? 😉

it’s so easy to make and you don’t need much time. yesterday evening i made half a glass with these ingredients:

– 1 whole, ripe banana

– 3 T peanut butter, unsweetened

– dash of salt

– 2-3 T cinnamon

– 1 T kardamom

optional: sweetener like agave syrup, local bio honey, maple syrup or stevia

–> blend all your ingredients until well mixed. the mixture is up to your tase: you can use more/less banana and pb.

put it in a glass and store in your fridge.

what can you do with the bananarama?

well, this is of course also up to you!

you can either eat it by the spoonful, eat it on a sandwich or so, use it as a dip for anything you can think of, and so on.

i enjoyed the bananarama sandwiched between some apple-bites..

oh, and don’t forget: IT’S HEALTHY! 

about my Number 2 excuse...

i told you about the weather..the sun is shining bright and burning down today, so i couldn’t get myself to doing any cooking.

instead, i decided for some yummy, fresh and protein-packed summer-salad:

“CHILLED SUMMER SALAD”

who says vegans don’t get enough protein? 😉

here’s how you do it:

– fresh tomatoes

– fresh pepper

– fresh cucumber

– cooked beans, drained and rinsed

–> cut your veggies into pieces and throw everything in a bowl.

dressing:

(you can make any dressing you like, but i like it simple)

balsamico vinegar

lemonjuice

– any vegetable oil you like

optional: some sort of sweetener

chilli

salt

black pepper

basil

if you like, you can combine this salad with some (toasted) bread or any other grain-food, like rice, quinoa etc.

another thing that would perfectly make up with this salad would be some roasted nuts or seeds.

see, it’s rich in nutrients and simply delicious!

about the amounts:  just go ahead and try! find your own yummy combination! 🙂

oh, and don’t you forget about the bananarama! 🙂

have a nice day!
