Easy Lentil Soup

Oh I love love love lentils!

I start to eat lots of legumes with the begin of my vegetarian journey in 2009. I read a lot of information about a healthy vegetarian diet to take care my body don’t miss anything. One of my absolute favorite legumes are lentils. Lentils are high in protein in fiber. Lentils add essential vitamins and minerals to your diet. Love your heart? Eat Lentils! Lentils are very good to protect your heart because of the high fiber. You don’t need to soak lentil before cooking. They are many different lentils for different dishes like soups, stew or falafel. Depends on what you going to prepare with lentils you need to choose the right one to get the best result. Similar to potatoes different sorts of lentils have different properties. Colors range from green, brown, black to reddish orange, coral, and gold. For this soup I use red lentils because they became creamy after the cooking.

A really delicious topping for this dish is fresh yoghurt (soy for vegan) and parsley. If you like you can also add a slice of Lemon.

Aromatic Tofu Bolognese

Every weekend I plan my week because it is very important for me to eat a healthy dish every lunch time. I hate eating spontaneously. I like to enjoy what I eat at lunch time. My lunch should give me lots of health benefit to get new energy for the other half of the day. I am really lucky because I can eat at home in my lunch time. But if I couldn’t do that I would prepare my lunch at take it with my every single day. Good planning is the base for a healthy diet. You don’t need to cook elaborate. It is only important to cook for 2 days so you have less stress at one day you don’t need to cook. I cook two times a week an during the weekend. I prepare healthy treats or soups and freeze them to have them on hand when I need them. Now it became a routine for me to have a good diet management. You can start in little steps by planning only a healthy breakfast and when you are safe with this you can start to plan lunch and so on. I will add a healthy living category soon with my tips for a healthy living.

I am really happy to share my favorite tofu Bolognese recipe with you!

I tried out different tofu Bolognese recipes and need a lot of time to find the perfect recipe for me and my hubby. Now it’s done. I don’t cook a lot with tofu but in this recipe I love love love it. This recipe is a vegan but we use parmesan for the topping. So it is on your side if you use cheese or not. For the red wine use vegan red wine if you like it vegan.

I use a lot of fresh herbs because fresh herbs because they are so good for my health. Herbs contains a lot of essential oils. That’s the reason why they are so delicious in the kitchen. Herbs also contains a lot of secondary plant products which are detoxifying for your body.

Tofu is a an excellent source of protein and contains all eight essential amino acids. You find also iron and calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorous in tofu. Vegetarians like to eat tofu because of its high qualified protein. You find also protein in other animal products like milk or cheese. But when you don’t eat cheese that much or eat vegan tofu is a really good ingredient for your diet.

I use canned tomatoes in this recipe because canned organic (!) tomatoes are also really healthy for sure. Tomatoes are the best source of the carotenoid pigment lycopene. The cooking process with a little oil helps to carry the lycopene into the bloodstream.

Nothing artificial, no added sugar, no additives, no harmful preservatives, no fillers and no bullshit. Specifically formulated for quick post-workout recovery!

I really love that healthy combination from hemp protein, brown rice protein, raw cacao, maca root, wild cranberries and baobab fruit.

I combine this blend with carrots to reach one portion of the 3 recommended vegetables a day and soaked cashew nuts for extra creaminess. I love adding different ingredients in a smoothie to get different healthy nutrients. You can easily chop the carrot when your blender isn’t strong enough.
I often used frozen banana because I freeze them when they are ripe. You can easily peel them and freeze in small pieces and use them whenever you want.

Natural Sweetened Carrot Almond Loaf

Natural Sweetened Carrot Almond Loaf

As you already read I prepare my own sweet healthy treats during the weekend to have a healthy snack „on hand“ during the busy week. Last weekend I baked a carrot almond loaf with a sweet taste and enjoyed it during the week as a midday snack to give my body back energy for the rest of the day. I normally eat 4 times a day because I really love sweets. In the past I ate a lot of unhealthy stuff which contains lots of raffinated sugar. Since I don’t eat factory-made sweets any longer I feel really better. In the past I had the feeling I was hooked by sweets because I can’t stop eating them. Healthy eating is not eating no sweets. Its eating more whole grain food, more unprocessed food and the right treats.

This carrot loaf is made with healthy carrots and almonds. Almonds are a source of many nutrients a fantastic source of many vitamins and Minerals. Along with almonds contribution to alkaline levels, it also has a high content of Vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant. Many people think that the word “fat” is negative, but in fact, certain fatty acids are essential, and can be very beneficial for overall health. Almonds are a very good brain food! They contains riboflavin and L-carnitine, nutrients that boost brain activity.
A lot of reasons to integrate almonds more often in your diet. Right?

I used buckwheat instead of grain flour in this loaf because buckwheat is really one of the healthiest food you can eat.
It is one of the best source of high-quality, easily digestible proteins.

Furthermore I used no raffinated sugar in this loaf. It is sweetened with rice syrup, a natural sweetener. Rice syrup is made with whole grain rice and contains all vitamins and minerals like zinc, magnesium and manganese. I have a lot of natural sweetener at home and I rice syrup is my new favorite. YEAH!

Carrots and a little bit yoghurt make this loaf moist and you can keep it in the fridge up to 5 days.
I use chia seeds instead of an egg. It is up to you if you like to make it vegan or vegetarian.

Buddha Bowl

What a nice name? Isn’t it? I saw so many Buddha bowls and think about to make my own. No its done and I am so happy to share the recipe with you.
I am sure it’s an new food trend to serve different delicious food in one bowl. The name comes from the round stomach from the Buddha. That’s so cute.

You can add what you want in that bowl and serve with nice dips and sauces. I use a simple yoghurt dip because it fits to all ingredients I use and I really love potatoes with avocado and yoghurt dip. Buddha bowls are also often served with hummus or tahini sauce. You can get creative in any way!

I decided to prepare some falafel and baked potatoes because they are really easy to make. I don’t want to have a lot of work. The falafel and potatoes are easily baked in the oven so you only need to fry the smoked tofu. If you won’t fry it you can eat the smokes tofu non fried in that bowl. It works as well. I really love fried smoked tofu and it works in seconds.

The combination of warm and cold ingredients in that bowl and the mix of soft and crunchy ones are so mouthwatering. Use Romaine Lettuce Leaves because this salad is really crunchy and works good together with the falafel and yoghurt dip.

All the ingredients I used in this buddah bowl are very healthy and digestible. The perfect mix for a lunch or dinner. Fresh herbs and spices are a big benefit to get a special aromatic flavor. Furthermore these ingredients are full of essential oils and anti-oxidants to provide your body.

Protect Skin Raspberry Smoothie

Doesn’t sound that perfect? Protect Skin Raspberry Smoothie? A perfect smoothie after your workout which contains tons of healthy Skin benefits.

We want it all! Perfect shine and soft skin, right? But how can we get it? Beside the right care we can help our skin to be healthy with the right diet and food. I called this smoothie Protect Skin Raspberry Smoothie because of the coconut milk and superfood blend I use. Coconut milk has skin-nourishing properties because of its Vitamin-E. This Vitamin is very important and helpful for healthy skin growth and repair. Above all, it prevents premature aging of the skin, since it has good antioxidant properties.

Make sure you use organic coconut milk for your smoothie without any additional additives. You often find hidden additives which are non-healthy for you.

To eat hemp seeds– which you can find in the “Balance Superfood Blend” from boostyourself you find in this smoothie (if you like to add it) is also e great opportunity to get better skin. Hemp seeds contains high quality oils like omega-6 fatty acids which increases the elasticity of your skin and brings new life to dry and tired skin. I love to use superfoods with lots of health benefits. Sometimes I use the separate superfoods but sometimes I love to have a mix on hand so I don’t need to mix them up by myself. You know the situation that you need to hurry up and need to mix up a smoothie fast without thinking too much what to add exactly to make it more healthy. That’s the reason why superfood blends exists – to make your life more easy LOL.

I use dates in all my smoothies as a natural sweetener. Normally 2 are enough to get a sweet taste but you can you use more when you like it more sweet. When you read the recipe you may first thing “salt?” Why is the adding salt into a smoothie? Salt is a great way to anhance the flavor of all the other ingredients. Adding salt to foods helps certain molecules in those foods more easily release. I tried it out with and without salt. And it really works!

Protect Skin Raspberry Smoothie

Serve 1

200ml coconut milk
50ml orange juice
100g raspberries (frozen)
2 dates
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
a pinch of salt (to enhance the flavor)

1 tbsp Balance Superfood Blend (from boostyourself)

Apple Protein Pancakes with Cashew Creme

I really see tons of pancakes every day on cheap nba jerseys social media and I get always Diet so jealous about it. I really decided to make some soon. Always when I see them. My list is too long.

I try to eat different fruits during the week. Sure I have also my favorite fruits but it is exiting to discover new ones from time to cheap nba jerseys time. I IGLAKóW couldn’t live without banana because it’s the best fruit to add into smoothies or muffins. Apples is my favorite fruit to eat together with self-made nut butter.

So I Storage decided to buy a Vitamix to prepare Kale Smoothies (My old mixer wasn’t that strong) and nut butter. I made my first nut butter 3 weeks ago and know I make a big jar every week. It is so easy. Only add nuts to your mixer and mix until it gets creamy. That’s all! Amazing, right ;o).

Back to the pancakes. As you can see in the recipe I use coconut sugar. It is the best you can use as an option to unhealthy sweetener like raffinated sugar of agave syrup. In that case – cheap mlb jerseys Happy Pancake Frying!

The patties are made from chickpeas, tahini and spring onions. The cumin gives the special flavor. Oh, I really love cumin. I could eat it in every meal. For frying I often use coconut oil.
