Awww these days, when all you are craving is heaps of fresh, raw salad and you still got lots of homegrown sprouts in the fridge *___* A huge plus of summer is that I can have lots of tasty tomatoes without guilt (sometimes the craving during the winter is too strong but I know tomatoes are summer food only :X) and I don’t feel cold from a salad haha (this is actually a real thing in winter… ). Here I added avocado, corn, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts and topped it with raw hemp oil and some italian herbs. Especially when eating raw (but not only), I really want my food to be organic, so this beauty here is all pesticide and GMO-free!
Try eating your salad with chopsticks, it is fun, takes longer, makes you appreciate and taste every bite more and leaves you replete quicker 🙂
I am back from an amazing and surprising weekend in Poland where we celebrated the birthday of good friend. After two days among 60 people I finally got to know a woman who vibes with me on a deep level. She’s a reiki healer and on her personal spiritual journey as well and we dived deep into topics like chakra healing, protection against other peoples negative energy (wear hats!), twin flames, self love etc!
One thing that is pretty present in my life right now is that I have to learn to be courageous enough to do what I am afraid of, because
You know your way by looking at the things you fear!
Btw, are you experiencing a rough time right know with more stress or bad luck than usual? You should know that its the MERCURY RETROGRADE in virgo right now, bringing chaos with it, and we need to be really aware and conscious and double check everything! It’s a great time to rethink actions or to finish something. DO NOT plan or make big actions, sign contracts, make agreements (not even verbal), start anything new. It is more likely to not last and it may change very quickly. The main period terminates on the 22.09.
So this is why I still didn’t sign a contract for a flat and why I’ll wait till the mercury is through the most intense phase of its retrograde!
Also, what my friend just told me, it is a good time to get rid of stuff and tidy out. Supposedly it is easier to part with stuff you don’t need any longer, so this is what I did on friday and will do today as well 🙂
It’s always nice because I find stuff I kinda forgot about and which I thought would no longer suit me, like this grey skirt I am wearing in the picture above. But then I start mixing it up with other items and find myself in an outfit I really like! 🙂
My lunch, recipe in this blogpost ❤
So basically this is what I eat for lunch everyday haha! It’s so good and satisfying, stuffing yet light!

We’ve got lovely 14 degrees celsius today, which is always so inviting to put some extra effort in the breakfast-making and taking some snaps of the result before eating it right up!
So today I made myself one of the best cheap meals I had so far… Anna discovered that the consistency of roughly mashed chickpeas is super close to the one of scrambled eggs! Like suuuuper similar! So I scrambled the chickpeas in a pan, seasoned them with some oregano, pepper and finally EGGSALT!
This one is lifechanging so keep an ear to the ground: there is an Indian black salt, called KALA-NAMAK-SALT, which actually tastes like boiled eggs!!! And that in a delicious way! You can add it to avocado toast, tofu or whatelse and get a vegan scrambled eggs experience! Woohoo! I use this one.
Besides that I was having a smoothie bowl consisting of the ingredients shown above! Now I am probably studying a bit and practice drawing! Have a beautiful day : )
