Fast good! 2 minutes coconut blueberry bowl

What’s that? Fast Good? Sounds funny, right?

To be honest. Nobody find the time to cook hours and hours. But everybody likes to eat more healthy and fresh. The solution?

Fast Good!

More and more restaurants discovered a new trend. To prepare fast, delicious and healthy food for everybody. If you are open-minded you will recognize more and more healthy possibilities in the food market. There are more and more fresh alternatives instead of meat burger or fatty french fries. In the last years it was really difficult for me to eat something healthy when I was on a business trip.

The Change

But I see the world is changing and I love it! I find more healthy sandwiches, spelt pasta, vegan and vegetarian burger as well as raw desserts. It’s amazing to see how people change their mind and take care of their selves. I’m also recognize a changing in the supermarket portfolio. There are more fresh juices, vegan bread and I was so lucky to find the first coconut yoghurt in my supermarket as well. You need to know I don’t live in a big city. I’m living in a small village and the next city is 30.000 people big. I prefer to buy from a local shop instead of buying food in the internet. Are you feel the same?

Was can you learn from this fact?

This fact and this food trend can help you to live more healthy step by step. As you can read in one of my last posts “Dietary change for a better wellbeing”. I recommend to change your diet not completely. You need to change it step by step. Try to find more healthy alternatives and be open-minded for new food ingredients you don’t know. A healthy diet don’t need to be really difficult.

If you open-minded to cook something easy and healthy you find some idea here:

A vegan idea! Sunflower seed tzatziki sandwich

Fast, healthy and tasty! The 10 minute mushroom ragout

This simple banana almond smoothie is a great breakfast idea!

Spiritual Food as a Lifestyle?

I read about the Food Trend “Spiritual Food”. Have you ever heard from this? It sounds also really funny.

When we talk about spiritual food we talk about ethic and social engagement. We talk about to think about what we eating. To think about the origin, the production conditions. We talk about animal farming and labor conditions. The fact is that we need to eat every day. To think about what we eat is really difficult. We need to learn how we can change our view.

Start thinking

Sometimes I know what I eat and I know it isn’t really “spiritual” but I eat it and I repress the memory. But sometimes I don’t eat anything in particular because I know more about ethical aspects. For example chocolate. I watched a German video about the production conditions of chocolate. I learned about child labor and I never never never bought conventional chocolate again since this experience. And I am really proud of it. We all can do little steps to make the world a little bit better. Build up your level of awareness and you will change little things as well. I am sure you can and you feel satisfied with your decision.

The Influencer

I recognized a big healthy food blogging trend in the last years. All these amazing souls helps to inform the world. They help to build up awareness. They share own experiences. I’m proud to be a part of this community and I’m proud to share my ideas and I’m proud to learn from others as well. I learned so many new thing about awareness, healthy food and living in the last year. I could write a book about it. But unfortunately I don’t find the time. Haha.

What are your experiences with food trends? Are there any who helped you to change something in your life?
I would be happy to read a comment from you.

2 minuts coconut smoothie bowl

To share a simple and easy recipe idea I choose my coconut blueberry bowl with coconut yoghurt. I use frozen berries because I have them on hand at every time when I need a fast breakfast. Coconut yoghurt is such a great and healthy alternativ for dairy yoghurt. I am really lucky I found it in my supermarket. I see more and more healthy alternatives are coming. I topp this bowl with my coconut granola. You can find the recipe here: Coconut Granola

A simple banana almond smoothie

Banana

Super easy and healthy

I recognized I haven’t shared one of my absolutely easiest and delicious smoothie with banana and almond butter (or raw almonds). When I haven’t much time in the morning or forget to prepare my breakfast in advance I mix up this smoothie. It Is full of healthy ingredients and makes me full for longer because I added some oats. As you already know I always stock a jar of self-made almond butter. If you like to know how you can make almond butter by yourself, read more on this post: Vanilla Almond Butter at the end from the post

One of my favorite smoothies every is my Cashew Lemon Smoothie with turmeric . I drink it 3 times a week because I haven’t find another smoothie which is more delicious for me. You only need to soak the cashew nuts a day before and simple add banana, turmeric, dates and vanilla. It’s soooo good! But to be honest it is really hard to decide which one is better. This banana almond version or the cashew lemon version. I love both. In the past I added lots of superfoods to my smoothies. In the meantime I don’t do that because I’m not really sure if I need them. My option changed. I think we don’t need lots of superfoods to live more healthy. It is totally enough to use natural superfoods like kale, beetroot or linseeds. A few superfoods are still in my kitchen. One is maca. I still eat it because I like the taste not only it’s healthy.

Some people ask me if I get full by drinking a smoothie. YES! Because I add some filling ingredients as well. If you like to get some ideas read my blog post: perfect smoothies.

If you using bananas in a smoothie it is really important to use ripe ones. My biggest tip for preparing smoothies is to freeze bananas in chunks. You have them ripe on hand in time. Perfect!

I bought coconut butter and use it in this smoothie. You can also use oil instead of the butter.
The butter is thicker and includes the flesh as well. It’s more like almond butter and it’s more creamy. Like a creamy puree.

Turmeric has significant health benefits because of its biologically active component, called curcumin. A traditional part of Indian herbal medicine, curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compound that could help keep you healthy. Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect you from free radicals.

Soaked cashews brings a lot of creamyness in that smoothie.
