post – gig & pre – college day.

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?

hell, YES!!

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:

HOMEMADE GRANOLA

sweet, crunchy, healthy. what more could a girl want?

need caffein?

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.

yes please.

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”

you need:

– 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!

your freshgirl,

miss flexible.

what- me?

YES! in this post, i’m gonna prove you that i’m not only flexible on alterning recipes, but also in real life.

yum. but more about this delicious shake later.

the thing is, i’m planning on moving out since i was about eight.

you heard me, i’m serious. an own flat has been one of my greatest dreams ever since i was born little, because a) my family circumstances demand for it and b) i’m really longing for being completely independent. it may sound weird, for i’m only 18, but i can tell you it’s what i dream about.

last year i was quite close to fulfilling my dream: i could have moved to a flat with two other girls in vienna, but then i found that the university of vienna was not what i had expected and so i had to back out. eventually i found the right place to study for me, which turned out to be in my hometown, so i planned on moving in the student’s hostel. well, for a number of annoying reasons this wasn’t possible either, and therefore, my dear readers, i needed to redisponse again.

i decided on staying at home for at least another year, which won’t be easy, but doable, which is why i’m currently “working” as my own interior architect slash designer.

yesterday and today i was clearing out my whole room: i said farewell to boxes of childhood memories and daddy helped me carrying them into the attic, i hefted a huge bag of clothes to the “Humana”-container and – this was the most painful thing- i got rid of all the photos and images i’ve been adhering to my walls throughout my teenage-years. my walls always looked like some huge piece of art: photos, images, drawings, lyrics and thoughts were written and glued onto them, and now they’re gone. now these walls look empty, but, to my surprise, i kinda like it.

why do i do all this?

i need more space in my room. i want to make my room more “grown-up”, but in the cool way. i’m gonna paint my walls white and light-green, which is, by the way, my fav color, and i plan on getting a new floor. you have to know that i’ve got a carpeted floor, which is both impractical and ugly..so it needs to go!

it’s been some work, and i’m far from done, but in my opinion this sort of work definitely is fun! 🙂

you wanna see how horrible my room looks right now? 😉

you sure?

so much about the real life. who wants to see what i’ve created lately? 🙂

it’s the ultimate CHAI – COFFEE – SHAKE!

i needed some drinkable motivation for my room-project and, inspired by katie and my taste buds, i made up a recipe for this very motivating shake which is perfect for me! 🙂

it’s easy to do, healthy and contains caffeine. who doesn’t like tasty caffeine?

for 1 shake

– 1 cup mylk (soy, oat, spelt, rice…whatever you like!)

– 1 ripe frozen banana

– 1 espresso, cold

– 1-2 t cinnamon

– 1 t ginger

– dash of pepper

– a little stevia (or more, if you want your shake really sweet!)

–> blend all the ingredients. you’re done! 🙂

* if you prefer a hot beverage, just use hot espresso and don’t freeze the banana, then put your mixture in the microwave.

it’s really yummy, not too rich(depends also on which kind of mylk you decide on) and vitalizing! 🙂

so, i’m off for some more room-work,

have a nice day 🙂
