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,

are you a “snacker”?

 

do you like to stroll around in your house, looking for something delicious you could put into your mouth?

are there some kinds of foods around that keep on calling “eat me, eat me!”, everytime you pass them?

do you prefer several smaller meals over the mainstream 3 big meals?

 

– if so: welcome to the club! 

you are a “SNACKER”.

 

maybe you’re asking yourself right now: “oh my goodness..- is it cool to be a >snacker<?”

well. i can only speak for myself, but in my opinion, it is very cool! 😉

 

why?

 

you can snack your way through your day and eat much more various, different & interesting food than you would if you weren’t a snacker.

another reason is, you never get too hungry and won’t ever feel too full.

also, it’s healthier, to eat smaller, balanced meals over the day than 3 huge portions.

 

 

 

so, let’s get snacky!

here come the TOP 3 of  my fav. snacks..

 

1.)

 

 

this is one of the easiest things to make, and still it’s kinda my all time favourite: APPLE-BITES, topped with some cinnamon and pure lemon-juice. healthy and tasty!

 

by the way, it could be said that fruit is my favorite snack, in general. “FAST FOOD“, packed with vitamins! yay.

 

 

2.)

another “all time classic”!

 

TRAIL MIX, in austria known as “students-food“, which is a mixture of nuts such as almonds, cashews, pecans etc., and raisins. there are various things to additionally pack into trail-mixes, like seeds or dried cranberries.

 

this snack is loaded with energy and taste, contains healthy fats and minerals. it’s good for your heart and contains substances that perfectly work against stress. now we all know why it’s also known as “students-food”! 😉

 

 

3.)

i knooooow. these little friends are not really filmstar-beauties. they’re not that photogenic, but nevertheless i love them.

DRIED FIGS  are known to be very healthy and provide you with good energy. they taste very sweet and have to be stored in the fridge, unless you eat all of them at once (me? yeah, i know i’m strange).

 

 

have you noticed? i just mentioned sweet snacks. as said before, i also highly appreciate every kind of fruit. think: oranges, bananas, peaches, grapes, pineapples and so on. fresh, sweet, cheap & uncomplicated! 🙂

 

 

but, from time to time i also long for savory snacks. 

personally, i like hot & spicy tofu – slices, raw veggies, roasted beans/chickpeas and huge salads. 

i could go on like this forever! 😉

 

 

what about your fav. snacks? 

if you want, leave a comment and tell me your preferences when it comes to snacks!

i’m curious! 🙂

 

 

now, time for some musical snack!

some days ago my good friend L. & me did a small recording session of a song by jessie j. if anyone is interested in the outcome, click the link to see the video of our cover version on youtube!

“Who You Are” Acoustic Version

 

 

 

 

 

one more thing: i told you in the last post i would shop for some nice decorations for my new room.

 

here’s what i got:

 

..rocking it on my walls..

…so does this cute pal…

 

..as well as my beloved “epiphone”-poster!

 

 

BUT… who rocks it the most?

 

my fluffy “broccoli-boy“!

 

🙂

 

stay snacky,
