Vegan meet up

Hey!

I had an awesome day today, thanks to my dear (vegan) friend Ivana .
Ivana has been a vegan for a long time,way longer then me. She helped me when I started living as a vegan. (She gave me the best recipes, and tips)

image

This is what we do whenever we meet; we eat. A lot. And I always try to make new things, which occasionally turns out terrible and sometimes awesome.

It’s nice to have a vegan friend. My ‘normal’  friends really try to understand and to think about me. But I notice that sometimes they get annoyed by me. By my eating habits. By the fact that I can’t eat everywhere, and that they always have to buy other things for me.
So it can be so nice and relaxing to talk to someone who has the same issues.
And, besides the vegan thing, Ivana is a great girl. We can have a lot of fun together.

I like the fact that I made a friend because of my principles. I made a friend who believes the same thing as I do. I really think I can say that becoming a vegan made my life a little bit brighter.

Love,

Cooking class in Marrakech

Hello!

Today is day 5 in Marrakech, and Vincent and I decided to follow a Maroccan cooking class!

I found it online and after checking their site we decided it was a fun thing to do!
The class started at ten in the morning.
We first went to the market, to buy all our ingredients. I pointed out that I was a vegan, it was no problem.
We bought a lot of vegetables, meat for Vincent, fruit for the juice and spices for in our dishes.

image

After that, we went to the hostel where we were going to cook. The lady who was giving the class, made us Maroccan tea. (You can see it on my YouTube channel; rawjazzie) And then it was time to make the preparations
Prepare (or making your mise en place) is always the most work to do. The cutting, mixing and chopping takes a lot of time.

image

We were going to make a tagine with vegetables and lamb with a sort of gravin. We also made a mango/orange juice. I’ll be posting the recipe, so you can make it too! We made the lamb in a pressure cooker; if you use a stone tagine, it’ll take over 6 hours to cook. We didn’t have that time, so a pressure cooker is also fine.

image

It took time to cook; in between we were drinking our juice and relaxing at the rooftop terrace. It was sunny, but not too hot. After 40 minutes it was cooked and we enjoyed our meal. I liked my tagine, there were so any vegetables in it!
The woman who gave the class was very friendly and her English was good.

image

I recommend  the class because it gives you a new view into the Maroccan culture.  You’ll find out how they make all of your favorite dishes, and you learn to make them yourself. The atmosphere in the class was great; very relaxed and there was no rush. It was a very nice thing to do.

Love,

Breakfast idea’s

Hey!

What do you eat for breakfast?
Do you always eat the same thing?
Do you lack ideas, and want to try something different?
Here are my favorite, delicious and healthy breakfast ideas!

1. Soy yogurt with home made cruesli. This is one od my favourite quick breakfast ideas, I make the cruesli the day before and I only have to put it in a bowl with some yogurt. But still, a delicious idea.
2. Overnight oats. You have to make this one the night before, the oats have to sulk in all the almond milk (or soy milk) you put in. It’s really good with some extra maple syrup.
3. Baked oats with chopped apple cinnamon. I live to eat this in the winter. Somehow it reminds me of eating apple pie. It takes a bit more time; you need to peel and chop the apples and then cook it with (soy) milk,cinnamon and oats.

image

4. Pancakes. I make my pancakes with almond milk and bananas instead of milk and eggs. (One large banana for 2 eggs) It takes some time,but it’s great for the weekend. It really feels like a Sunday brunch.
5. Rice crackers with hummus, tomatoes and cucumber. I eat this whenever we run out of oats or almond milk. It good, easy but it’s a bit like comfort food.

I hope you find my tips helpfull and tasty and of course, good luck with all the cooking, and don’t forget to enjoy your meal!

Love,

Rt4 day 25

Hey!

school has started today… But to be honest, I kinda like it. 🙂 Not just working, but learning things. I like to learn new things and I have a lot of cool subjects this year. I follow philosophy, history and a few other things. I hope that this is gonna be a fantastic school year, full of good grades. ^^ I thought about how I could get my nutricients in at school. HOW do I do that?? I thought about carying all of my banana’s, but I can’t keep 10 banana’s in my bag. And they don’t fill me up enough, I always crave after my banana’s. Even when I eat 6 banana’s… So I made a white bean salad with paprika and onion, a fruitsalad, and a salad made of tomtatoes and cucumber. 

Snapchat-20140902020759[1]My lunchbox, a delicious and fresh salad. The girl next to me was also eating, she first ate grapes (healthy) but after that opened a Mars-bar (unhealthy!). I think I stared at her. How could she do that? All the fat,sugars,E-numbers.. All of these things are bad for us. It was weird, ’cause she was, or that’s how it looked, being a healthy person with her fruit. But unfortunately, not all of us take good care of our body. 

RT4 day 25

  • Breakfast: 4 banana’s
  • Snack: white beans with paprika and onion (and hrbs)
  • Lunch: salad with 1 banana
  • Snack: 2 banana;s and 2 apples
  • DInner: 1 slice of toast with hummus and a huge salad with broccoli,beans and other veggies
  • Snack: tomatoes and carrots with hummus 

Love!

RT4 day 9

Hey!

today was again a wonderfull day. I got the chance to talk to a friend from school and I worked a few hours. Normally work is just work, nothing special, but this time.. I was very lucky! The fruit department decided to throw away some fruits, I saw it and just couldn’t take it. So I asked them if they were okay with me taking them. THey were! So I ‘saved’ 10 banana’s and a watermelon! Jeej, happy me. I also made a green smoothie with spinach, mint, banana and cucumber. It tastes really good, and looks so healthy.

RT4 day 9

  • Breakfast: 3 mango’s
  • Snack: none
  • Lunch: smoothie and 2 banana’s
  • Snack: none
  • Dinner: MORE banana’s (I’ve had watermelon before that)
  • Snack: 1 advocado and 2 banana’s

 

I had this amazing breakfast: 3 fresh, ripe and sweet mango’s ! I forgot how much I like mango’s. I took banana’s to my work, so I didn’t had the problem I had yesterday. It all went well, and I’m feeling good. This was my first ‘all raw’ day, and I liked it!

Love,
