As promised I share the list of your delicious recipes, Websites and Instagram Accounts today and I would be totally happy if you would do the same on your social media and Website. It’s such a great way to share our passion of food. You find the complete list of all participants at the end of this post. Thank you all for your participation! I had so much fun and all participants would be really happy if you find the time to share the complete list also on your blog. To share our Passion for Blogging, Food, cooking and Food photography.
I like to introduce you to one participant who joined as well and published her eBook last week. It is Traci from vanillaandbean (@vanillaandbean).
You can find her amazing eBook here: grab-n-go snacks. I bought it and I am totally satisfied.
I want to share a little bit about my feeling to be more YOU in this life.
At the moment I’m really in a lazy mode and spend a lot of time with relaxing and slow movement. I’m thinking about what’s really important for me. I like to discover more silence, calm and awareness because I feel that I really enjoy it. I don’t like to run across my life and recognize nothing. So many people are busy and stressed from their own timeframe because they want to fulfill the expectations from others and their own. The expectations from the world and from yourself are so high. Nobody can fulfill them the whole life. Don’t fulfill the expectations means to be not everybody’s darling. And some people won’t understand you when you act like yourself but that’s the only way to find happiness in life. To find your own way.
I recognized I need a change. I needed a break from the society to think about my truly needs. I recognized I don’t want many people around me. I don’t want to join every party or event. Instead of this I love time with myself, my cats, my food and my hubby. I love to meet family and friends from time to time but not every day and not every weekend. I enjoy to do some sports, yoga, meditation in my free time. I enjoy to cook. I enjoy to read books and watch movies. I love cuddling my cats and I love to sleep early to feel fit the next day. I’m truly happy I realized this.
What are your Needs?
Food to Go – for example a sandwich
Because I’m really lazy at the moment I don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen. I try to find more easy recipes to relax in the evening. I am a full-time worker and be in the kitchen mean a kind of meditation but I can’t meditate hours and hours. I don’t want to spend more time than 1 hour after my work with cooking and cleaning. I discovered Sandwiches for me to have a great and healthy lunch I can easily prepare in advance. I often prepare the ingredients in the evening and put them all together in the morning for my hubby and me.
As you already know I don’t eat animals because I love them. My base bread topping is cheese and avocado. But I try out other toppings as well like this sunflower seed tzatziki. It is so easy to made, vegan and full of healthy nutritions. For example it’s is full of Vitamin E. I love Vitamin E because it is really helpful for a good skin. Maybe I’m crazy but I recognized my skin is so much better since I eat more seeds and nuts. I eat them every day. Vitamin E also help neutralize free radicals to protect brain health.
Sunflower seed tzatzki sandwich
100g sunflower seeds (soaked for 4 hours in water)
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
2 tbsp fresh dill (chopped)
1/4 cucumber (grated, scrape out the seeds with a spoon to avoid liquid)
4 slices of whole wheat bread
6 slices of smoked tofu
- After soaking your sunflower seeds, drain and rinse them.
- Add lemon juice and olive oil and mix in a blender or with a immersion blender.
- Add the grated cucumber and the dill.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Serve your sandwich with tzatski, fresh salad and smoked tofu.

Hello Marisa, thank you so much. I am happy you participated. xoxo Janine
I appreciate your message so much on being ourselves. Why is it so hard sometimes to be comfortable in our own skin? Through the years I’ve learned a lot about how to be me, to respect and honor my needs and to listen to my inner pilot light for guidance. I’m grateful for this learning and wisdom. Thank you for reminding us to just be.

Hi Traci, so true. I am the same. We all still learning. I am sure we Need to learn the whole life. And thank you for your nice words for my Sandwich. I really love to try out vegan Versions as well because I really love to eat cheese. But sometimes I really Need a Change. xoxo Janine
