I exactly remember the day I have tried peanut butter for the first time. It wasn't so popular in my country back then, I was spending my summer in Amsterdam and my dad bought me a jar of this deliciousness. Oh man, I fell in love straight away, and our love lasts till today. Did you know that peanut butter was first invented in the Netherlands, not in US as a lot of us tend to believe, and was used as a medication for some disease. I thought, it was interesting, but let's get to the point. I've been not feeling so well recently, and decided to skip classes today to get a bit better. What does it mean? Baking! My family cannot complain while I'm being sick, haha :) RESEE'S INSPIRED MUFFINS. Not so sweet though, so if you feel like adding more sugar, by no means go for it! They are just soo delicious, you need to try this recipe out, especially if you are a peanut butter lover like I am.

(for 8 muffins)
  • 1 1/2 cup of wholewheat flour
  • 1 cup of soy milk
  • 1 cup coconut oil (after melting - about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 cup of icing sugar
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 2 tbsp of vanilla sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 3 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 banana
  • peanut butter (as much as desired)
  • 100 g of dark chocolate
  • 1 handful of peanuts
  1. Preheat an oven to 180 C
  2. Mash a banana, add soy milk, icing sugar, vanilla sugar, salt and melted coconut oil - combine thoroughly. 
  3. Pour flour, baking powder, cocoa powder and mix all together until desirable consistency

4. As shown above, place a batter in a muffin pan (1 tbsp of batter, then 1 tsp of peanut butter and another tbsp of batter) 
5. Bake for about 15-18 mins
6. Melt the chocolate and when muffins are cooled down, spread the chocolate on them and top with some peanuts. 

Bon appetit!

Who does not love cookies, that are crispy, chewy and soft at the same time? I highly doubt you will be able to find such a person. The recipe, that I'm about to share with you, is kind of special for me, I made my very first cookies following this recipe! They turned out to be so incredibly delicious, that I'm baking them regularly ever since. Keep in mind, that they are not low-fat, sugar-free nor gluten-free. They taste exactly like traditional cookies or even better, but are not the healthies option. Personally, I believe that balanced lifestyle is the key. Without further ado, let's get started!

  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of wholewheat flour 
  • 1 cup of cane sugar
  • 1 banana
  • 120 g of vegan butter
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon 
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 100 g of dark chocolate chips(make sure it doesn't contain milk)
  • sunflowers seeds, rasins, nuts (it's all up to you)
Preheat oven to 180 C. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in one bowl. Beat margarine and cane sugar in another bowl. Add a mashed banana and beat thoroughtly until creamy. Beat in the flour mixture. Pour oats, chocolate chips and addings of your choice into the bowl and combine using a spoon.
Form cookies and place them onto baking sheets and bake in the oven for 10-15 mins. 

Bon appetit!

Although the summer is already over, I still enjoy eating ice cream, especially for breakfast. It doesn't sound too healthy, does it? Well, ice creams are wrongly associated with processed, unhealthy, junk foods. Whereas you can make them using only one, healthy ingredient! Maybe, some of you have already heard about nice cream (or nana ice cream). I guess it is not a surprise then, that the only one ingredient we will be using for this recipe are bananas. There are many variations of this recipe, you can add cocoa powder to make your ice creams chocolaty, or dates with maple syrup to make it caramely (and still plant-based!), berries, coconut flakes or whatever you feel like adding (be creative, you can never go wrong with nice cream!). Today, however, I would like to share with you the basic recipie, because I find these ice creams incredibly delicious by itself, so do not hesitate and make yourself a nice bowl of nice cream, you won't regret it, I promise! :)

  • Frozen bananas (use as many as you like, I usually use 4)

    Put your bananas into the freezer overnight (preferable for at least 8-9 hours). The next morning defrost them for 10-20 mins (depending on how good blender you have), then place them into the blender (as I've mentioned before you can add cocoa powder, berries or dates to make a different flavour) and blend until desirable consistency of ice creams! (if you don't have a good working blender, you can add some soy milk or water)

Place the ready product into the bowl and add some toppings (eg. chia seeds, berries, date chunks, chocolate chips).
And there you have your healthy, delicious ice creams, that you can enjoy for a breakfast without a feel of guilt.  

Bon appetit!

I have always been a huge fan of coffee, black, white, with steamed milk and most importantly: coffee with whipped cream. When I went vegan I didn't have a problem with giving up a cheese nor regular milk, but whipped cream on my coffee, oh man that was a real struggle. But then I came up with this recipe and it literally changed my life! When my friends are coming over, I usually use this recipe and everyone seems to be loving it, so I thought I would share this with you guys, since it is much healthier than coffee with tons of sugar, hormones and pus on top. I hope I convinced you enough :)

Ingredients :
(this recipe makes 2 portions)

  • double espresso (you can also go for a grain coffee, if you're avoiding caffeine)
  • 1 banana
  • 8 small dried dates (you can use fresh, but I run out)
  • 1 can of coconut milk (put it to the fridge for at least 12 hours before making coffee)
  • 150 ml of soy milk (or any other plant milk of your choice)
  • 1 tsp of cacao powder (you can replace it with carob powder as well)
  • 2 tbsp of coconut sugar 
The secret trick is to keep your coconut milk in the fridge for long enough, so you can separate milk from water. After at least 12 hours in the fridge, open a can and firstly put out the milk (it supposed to be very thick!) using a spoon and at the bottom you will be left with coconut water. We will be using both water and milk for this recipe! Place your banana, dates, soy milk, coconut water and cacao powder into your blender and blend until smooth. Pour the coffee into glasses. Now it's time to make our whipped cream! All you have to do is mix coconut milk with some coconut sugar (you can use any type of sugar, or even don't use any, depends on your preferences) until desirable consistency. Place it on your coffee, you can also sprinkle some cacao powder on top to make it look even more fancy and ... your coffee is ready to enjoy with someone special! :)

Bon appetit!

Why Vegan?

 Pretty much every time I tell someone that I'm a vegan, it immediately begins a conversation about how deficient I must be in a certain nutrient, and when for instance someone says: Hey, I'm gonna go to McDonalds to grab a burger, noone seems to be concerned about this person's health. Kinda ironic, don't you think?
If you are still one of these people that keep on believing, that vegans are crazy people, who eat only salad, that are completely separated from the rest of society. Then it's high time for you to change your perspective. 
I'm not judging anyone, we've all been taught (at least 98% of population) that milk is essential for strong bones, that animal protein is the only source of protein for humans, that when you don't eat meat you automatically become anemic and weak. 
I remember the day that I decided to give up eating meat. I was 13 years old, I just couldn't handle the smell and taste of meat anymore, it was totally off putting. I've never been a huge meat-eater, if my parents hadn't made me eat meat, I would have never eaten it. I always loved fruits, veggies, fruit juices, pasta, rice; basically everything that was plant-based. Everyone has a sweet tooth, our body runs on glucose (it's a fact, you cannot deny that). That's why kids rather eat banana than a meat, it's meat and diary industries that keep on telling us that we need more protein, more meat, more diary and other high-cholesterol (that is btw the main cause of many diseases) products. So we listen to others instead of listening to our own bodies and signals that it sends to us! We've been brainwashed, that fruits are fattening and demaging to our teeth, so we could buy more animal products. 

Did you know that cancer is 100 % reversable? No? Not a surprise, since pharmacy industry is making so much money selling drugs, that do not work! So why educate people, since we can have a great business using their naivety and the fact that they are already brainwashed. Seriously? Drinking milk from other specie (that btw helps a new born calf to grow like 200 pounds in a few months, I don't want that for my body, you choose), eating high fat, high protein diet in general - is the best environment for cancer cells to grow. 

I encourage you watch this video:

I'm proud of being vegan.
I'm proud of thinking out of the box, even though I've been brainwashed myself I was able to find a way out and start seeing everything from slightly different perspective.
It's not only about me, it's about the whole planet earth, about other beings, about environment, about climate. But it's also about me, about my health, about feeding my body with food that my body is designed to run on. It's about happiness, not feeling guilty after a meal. It's also about excitement, that finally you live for something bigger than yourself, that you're doing good, therefore the good will be returned to you as well. Your body, soul and mind are all connected, whether you are aware of it or not. You can't be really happy if you feed your body with products, that in order to be produced caused pain and death to other beings. Think it through.


PS: Vegan food is FREAKING DELICIOUS! I've never spent less time preparing my meals, that were actually HEALTHY AND TASTY! And no, vegan food is not expensive. This lifestyle is as cheap or as expensive as YOU make it. You can eat rice, pasta, veggies, fruits, bread, nuts, seeds - those are the cheapest foods in the world.

Vegan burgers!

These burgers are the easiest, cheapest and without a doubt one of the tastiest I've ever eaten. I highly recommend you to try this recipe out. It's gonna be worth it, I promise!
So, without further ado, here you have a list of ingredients that you're gonna need to make 4 delicious burgers:

  •   4 buns of your choice (home-made are obviously the best option, but you do what you can!)
  •   1 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  •  1 big onion 
  •  2 cloves or garlic
  •  3 tbsp of vegetable oil (if you want to make it a low fat burgers, you can replace oil with water, but by my opinion it tastes way better when you add a bit of oil)
  •  spices and herbs of your choice: I used salt, pepper, cayenne paprika, coconut sugar, oregano and spices for burgers 
Firstly you need to cook oats with 2 1/2 cups of water until oats soak all the water. Then leave it for about 20 mins to cool down a bit. Meanwhile oats are cooling down, fry onion with garlic using a vegetable oil, after it's done mix it with oats and add species of your choice. Let it cool down for another 15 mins. Now all you need to do is to form burgers using you hands and fry them using a bit of oil. When your burgers are all done, place them in the buns and add some additions of your choice. I didn't have many options availabe so I went only for ketchup, mustard, fresh arugola and tomatoes; but you can use whatever you want to, be creative :)

Bon appetit!

Vegans eat ONLY salad

How depriving a vegan lifestyle really is? You need to read an ingredient list before you buy any kind of product, I'd rather die than decide to go vegan. Well, I was thinking the same way few years ago, when I was vegetarian out of purely ethical reasons. Back then, I didn't make a connection between dairy industry and harming animals, I've thought that it was a natural process, cow needs to produce a milk, and people do cows a favor by drinking their milk. BS, complete BS. Cows produce milk only for their offsprings, just as humans do. When a woman is pregnant and she gave a birth, she has milk to feed her baby. It is none different in other species. In order to produce a milk, humans impregnate cows, and when they give a birth, a baby is taken away from his mother (IMAGINE HOW HARD IT MUST BE TO HAVE A CHILD BE TAKING AWAY FROM HIS OWN MOTHER), so the baby does not use milk, that is SUPPOSED TO be producted for humans. But really? You actually think that this is the reason to why cows produce milk? For humans? Not for calves? Think that through. We've been tought that milk is good for own bones, whereas in reality: countries with the highest consumption of dairy products have also the HIGHEST percentage of people having osteoporosis. But yeah, vegans are the crazy one.
