“Wake Me Up – Cup”

“Wake me up, before you go, go…

I’m sure you all love know this song. Some might find it too “kitchy”, but I always kinda liked it:)

As you might also know by now, I’m not the breakfast sort of girl.

This means, if “breakfast” stands for real meals right after I woke up.

Buuuuuut, the thing I discovered over the years, is that typical “breakfast” is even better when enjoyed during the day, or even at night!

Oh yeah, you heard me, I said night.

Everytime I’m kinda stressed or just exhausted, I’m really craving for some breakfasty stuff, like yogurt, fruit, oats and of course granola.

So, today I bettered my routine-snack meals and combined all this stuff.

You see the result right here:looks AMAZING, right? 🙂

I call it the

“WAKE ME UP – CUP”

you need:

– vegan yogurt (i prefer “alpro soy yogurt“, the classic version)

– lemonjuice (mixed into the yogurt, i like this, but you can omit)

– fresh/frozen berries

– fresh pineapple

– some homemade, vegan GRANOLA (see the recipe some posts ago!)

–>  do it layer by layer:

you could, for example

1.) start with a layer of granola

2.) pour some yogurt onto it

3.) top the yogurt with some of the fruit

4.) then, again, top the fruit with some yogurt

5. ) finally, put the rest of the fruit onto the yogurt layer and top it with even more granola…:)

but that’s just one way to go, you can do, however you like! 

um, yes, I also topped the whole thing with some cinnamon, which tastes just lovely. some other ideas that came into my mind were your fav. nuts, some maplesyrup or other sweetener, some chocolate nibs, cocoa or carob, or even, if you want your cup really naughty, some chocolate-syrup! (don’t forget to check if it’s vegan!)

this cup is really flexible, so just do, however you please! 🙂

oh, talking bout flexible, I eventually got my results of the CAE, and I’m proud and happy to announce: I MADE IT!

I passed at grade B, so it’s real, the FH is just waiting for me! :)))

okay, ready for some more food-porn?

…oooh yeeeah…:)that’s it! (and yes, I am a little obsessed with my granola-creation) 🙂

read me soon,

stay cruelty free ! 🙂

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 🙂

Chai-Latte alá sassi

das hier ist sozusagen das “rezept” für mein unangefochtenes lieblingsgetränk: Chai Latte.

höchst wahrscheinlich hat dieser post den titel “rezept” gar nicht verdient, allerdings hab ich mittlerweile meine ganz eigene methode der zubereitung entwickelt, die ich jetzt hier veröffentlichen werde;)

Ich mach den chai immer auf diese art:

mein lebenselexier

1. wasser kochen;)

2. eine normale tasse mit sojamilch füllen (ich nehme immer “alpro soja- light”)

und ab in die mikrowelle damit; (natürlich kann man sie auch anders erhitzen)

3. kochendes wasser in eine extra große tasse füllen (soll etwa das doppelte fassungsvermögen der     normalen tasse haben) & 2-3 beutel “chai”-tee hineinhängen;

(ich nehme immer den chai von “teekanne”)

4. die erhitzte sojamilch so richtig aufschäumen, inzwischen den tee ziehen lassen;

5. die teebeutel entsorgen (nach ca. 8-10 min.) und die geschäumte milch auf den tee gießen;

6. nach belieben süßen(ich süße nie nach, aber einfach probieren), alles vorsichtig durchrühren          und etwas zimt auf den milchschaum streuen.

voilá!

der chai ist da:)

lasst ihn euch schmecken!

xoxo,

S.
