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,

Band – update!

hey y’all! 🙂

 

as i promised, i am now writing an entire post about my one and only band: “Oh, I Taste The Queen”!

if you’re interested, go visit us at http://www.facebook.com/ohitastethequeen!

 

i’m just gonna copy  paste what’s written in the “about”-section on our facebook-page, so you get the idea:

 

Oh, I Taste The Queen” was born in march 2011, when Michi&Michi, Nico, Gregor and Saskia bumped into each other in a small rehearsal room in lovely & rocking Vienna.
Soon the 5 of them, each with his/her own musical history with several other bands and projects, found that the chemistry between them was just right, on both the personal and the musical level.

The band made its debut at the “BERGWERK” (Neusiedl) on 17.June 2011 by rocking the stage along with the local bands “Schilfgürtel” and “Gravitation”.
Songs were written at high speed, a gig at the “BORG Wr.Neustadt” school festival in july 2011 followed, and eventually the band made it into the final of the “America Is Waiting”-contest, which is run by the Landesjugendreferat Burgenland and was held at the legendary “Cselley Mühle” (Oslip).

Totally unexpected “Oh, I Taste The Queen” won the contest, which opened up some promising opportunities for the band: 100 copies of the “live-performance at the final, a gig at the “Picture On Festival” (Bildein), a number of other gigs and 5 days in the “Webros” recording studio.

The band all in all is highly motivated to develop, play shows, write more and more songs and, what’s most important: to ENJOY playing music!

What’s one of the most remarkable features of the young band is that there is no “leader” in the common sense, for all the songs are written together. 
“Oh, I Taste The Queen” combines artistically challenging music and “catchy tunes”, by writing songs that are appealing, but far from boring, the members kind of express themselves through their music, which guarantees the songs to be authentic and lively.
