We are slowly reaching the summer season (at least here in Europe) and summer equals bees, flowers blooming and other incredible creatures appearing. My family is starting to prepare our garden for the summer season, planting vegetables, flowers and figuring out what we can do to help our little flying friends that are so important for our eco system.

I absolutely love food! I love to be creative in the kitchen, I love experimenting with new flavors, new combinations of textures and I love to eat the delicious foods afterwards. As you might know I follow a vegan whole food diet, eating mainly fruit and veggies which had been completely life changing for me. I have never loved food more than I do now eating a plant based diet. Not to get too cheesy (lol) but it is so hard to put into words, there is something so… so enriching and so satisfying about the power of plants in a way I have never experienced before.

During the end of 2018 I became more and more aware of my social media use. Who I followed and why. I started asking myself questions. Why did I follow this account? I started decluttering the accounts I followed and after a month or two I did it once more removing even more accounts. Now, I would say that I follow the accounts that add value to my social media use. But what do I know, maybe I follow even less in a month - maybe I follow more. Actually questioning what accounts I follow has made me more aware of how I am affected by social media. It has made me aware of why I am on social media.

In my previous post about sustainable period products I mentioned the Thinx underwear. I also mentioned that I had yet to try them, until now. I have been using the Thinx underwear for few a periods now and they are exactly what I needed! They are life changing and I am so incredibly happy I got a pair to try because I am 100% getting a few more for the end of my period to minimize the washing for one pair only.

For a product to be completely vegan it must be free from animal products, animal by-products and animal testing. I already have a post on how to avoid animals testing but today we are going to dive even more into labels that can be found on products to figure out if they are vegan or not. Because how do you tell if a product is vegan or not? What if the back of the package says that it may contain eggs? Does that mean that there are actually eggs in the product. This and all the other labels (that I know of) is what I am going to talk about today.

'How can a name have an influence on me?' were my thoughts about the whole thing because surely, how can the name we were given at birth influence us in our lives? It is just a name, a combination of letters. How can it have an influence on who we are? Well, that was something I thought before seeing someone who worked with names, the energies and the planets and she totally just described who I am based on my name and my birthday. That was crazy!

I believe that in order to make changes in this world you need to be the change you wish to see. The change starts with you. Don't wait for someone else to come along to start for you and if you choose to wait you will be waiting for a long time. And if you think one person can't make a difference, think again. Every single movement ever created, every single change ever made in this world started with an individual with an idea, with the will to make a difference. The only way to start a movement, to start the change is to be it. Be the change you wish to see.

Entering the world of ethical and fair-trade fashion can be quite the jungle. There are many different labels and just because the company claim that it is ethically made does it actually mean that the cotton was also grown fairly or do they 'just' mean that the clothing itself, the sewing process, was ethical? What do the labels actually mean when it comes to the process of making the clothing item all the way back to growing the material, to making the fabric and lastly putting the item together?

I am back with another bunch of books that have had an impact on my life. Whether they are tiny or huge changes they have shared some kind of information that has led me to where I am today. Today I live more in the present moment, I have removed the things from my life that do not serve the absolute best for me and I have let go of shame in order to be able to dare greatly and be vulnerable. I am so grateful for the universe leading me to these amazing books filled with life changing pages. Let's get into the books:  

Last day of Recipe Week. It has been so much fun sharing all these fantastic recipes with you and I would love to do another round in the future that's for sure! We are finishing off with one of my favorite recipes from one of my newest eBooks 'Simple Smoothies' which is this red berry bomb. It is so delicious, sweet yet has a sour touch at the same time + it, like every other smoothie ever, it is so easy to make which makes it the perfect quick meal!

This Recipe Week is flying by and it has been an absolute pleasure sharing these recipes with you - I am definitely repeating the success in the near future! Today I am bringing you another super easy yet amazing dessert that is made from cauliflower. I know what you are thinking; cauliflower?? In a dessert?? But trust me on this one - it is so good and the cauliflower gives it the perfect mousse consistency and combined with the lemon flavor and some fresh berries you have an A++ dessert!

I drink a lot of freshly squeezed lemon juice so I am left with a lot of lemon peels and one of the ways to just reuse a fraction of the peels is with this lemon mousse:

people  //  20 min. + in the fridge overnight.

Ingredients:
700g // 6 ½ cup cauliflower rice, thawed or frozen
1 dl // 6 - 7 tbsp. maple syrup
½ tsp. vanilla powder
½ lemon peel
2 tbsp. arrowroot powder

Topping:
Fresh berries; here I used raspberries

Method:
Place the cauliflower rice into a pot along with 1 tbsp. water and sauté the rice until tender; it takes about 10 minutes. Stir frequently so it doesn’t burn. Pour the rice into a sieve and let the water drip off.

Cut the half of the lemon peel, where the juice has been squeezed out, in half and place them in a blender along with the cauliflower rice and the rest of the ingredients except the arrowroot powder. Blend until you have a smooth crème.

Season the crème with maple syrup, lemon peel and vanilla powder. The lemon flavor must be strong because it will fade once it is placed in the fridge to set.

Add the arrowroot powder and blend until mixed.

Place the crème back into the pot and turn up the heat while stirring frequently so it does not burn. When the crème boils take it off the heat and distribute it into 4 glasses, smooth out the surface and place it in the fridge.

Store the mousse in the fridge until serving.

Top of with fresh berries.

Enjoy!

There are a lot of people who think meh when it comes to salads. I am one of those people - or at least I used to.. That was before I had this salad my mother created a few years ago and it has turned the salad game around for me! I no longer think boring instead they are a delicious side part of a good dinner or lunch if you are creative with it. This salad is so good I just had to share it with you! This is perfect for anything but I really love it with some oven baked potatoes with a red spice.
