Let’s Go Bananas! Food Hack! I can't imagine a life without bananas! They are the best base for nice cream and smoothies, and are perfect to replace eggs when it comes to pancakes, muffins, waffles, or any other baked goods. Whenever I bake something, there has to be a smashed banana in it.
Cleaning Ya System
I love to drink cold lemon water for detoxing. It's healthy, tastes good and makes me feel focused and fresh. If I eat a lot of unhealthy food for a few days, then I also love to eat one day raw to balance it out.
Must Try Discovery! For all the tiramisu lovers out there: try the combination of vegan curd and cashew butter! This combination is heaven! I haven't tasted such a full and creamy mousse for a long time.

As I decided to become vegan, my whole life changed. It´s not only about the food. You become more aware of what is happening around you; the animals, the nature, the people; you see everything from another point of view. After I became vegan, I started a dietitian apprenticeship and blogging, which were one of the best decisions of my life so far -- just because I became vegan.
Berry Cinnamon Buns
½ cup icing sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
Toppings: Berries Icing Sugar Lemon juice Nuts
Dough: 310g Spelt flour 160g Whole grain spelt flour 60g Brown sugar ¼ tsp Salt 155g Soymilk 80g Margarine 20g Yeast 155g Apple puree
Filling: 100g Margarine 230g Brown sugar 3tsp Cinnamon 4tsp Vanilla
Put the flour, sugar and salt into a big bowl and mix them. Put the soy milk, margarine and apple puree in a pan and slightly warm it up (Stir constantly). Try to reach body temperature, add the yeast and don’t stop to stir. Attention: When the temperature is over 40°C, the yeast bacteria will die and the buns won't ́t rise, so in this case, let it cool down before you add the yeast. Knead the flour mixture and the soy milk mixture together (knead 3 minutes). Cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rest in the sun (or any other warm place) for about an hour. Continuing with the filling, melt the margarine and mix it with the sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. 6. Preheat the oven (180°C). Cover your worktop with flour and roll the dough into a square shape.
Brush the dough with the filling (you can also fill it with some berries if you want to). Roll the dough up into a long starting at the long side. Then cut into 12 slices. Place the rolls cut side down on a with a baking sheet covered baking tray. Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden. Mix about 1/2 cup icing sugar with a little bit lemon juice and pour it over the buns (it works best if you let them cool down first). Top the buns off with some berries and nuts.
