I love to eat green food, so nutritional and healthy. I am vegan, so it is all plant based.
Introducing my favorite foods to you:
Do you like sprouts ? It is my new old obsession. I used to germinate seeds and then forgot about it until a friend told me about her sprouting activities. So, I took the sprouting jar out of the cupboard and first grew spicy radish and lentil seeds.
Sprouting makes the seeds, grains or nuts easier to digest and betters the nutritional value. It is everywhere: In your health food store you can find sprouted granolas, bread made from sprouted grains, etc.
Soaking and sprouting grains also partially degrades counterproductive anti-nutrients, like phytic acid, which can inhibit absorption of some minerals including iron and zinc.
Some green breakfast ideas:
Delicious tomato bread with vegan cream cheese with some seeds and sprouts on top. Delicious!
Another classic is avocado toast. Both always accompanied by a matcha latte with vegan mylk . Yummy!
Another great breakfast or snack idea is a smoothie bowl. Use recycled coconut shells as beautiful bowls. Every food looks much nicer in these beautiful natural bowls. It is an indispensable eco chic kitchen basic for me. If you have your liquid smoothie in a glass use a reusable straw, please!
My number one smoothie that everybody likes is green.
2 thick slices of fresh pineapple
small piece of ginger
half a teaspoon of spirulina (check that its taste is not very fishy or just skip)
juice of 1 lime
Handful of spinach leave
Put everything into a food processor. Put in a bowl and decorate with granola, fruit, nuts or whatever you like.
Apart from multi-colored salads and buddha bowls, I love this pesto as topping for real pasta, veggie pasta or salads. So easy and yummy!
No kidding, this vegan pesto tasted better than the „real“ thing!
So easy and quick to prepare!
- 2 hands full of basil leaves
- 1/4 cup of hemp seeds
- 1/4 cup raw cashews
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 3 teaspoons of nutritional yeast
- pinch of salt
Put everything in a food processor for the pesto.
Frie onion rings and zucchini slices and champignons in a pan. Put the pesto on top. Ready! So yummy!
You can also use coriander leaves instead of basil. Very delicious as well!
