I made a berrylicious smoothie today. It was a lot, but really good!
I needed a big smoothie; there was so much wind today, the wind almost blew me of my bike.
But it was a good workout. 😉
For dinner I made these peppers;

5 minutes power couscous

Hey!

Today was a busy day. I got myself a new cellphone, so I’m really happy now. Took some time to install everything, but he looks great. I had to do tons of other stuff, so cooking was not something I could spent my time on. So I just made this very easy but delicious couscous. I put some things together and it turned out fine!
That’s why I wanted to share it with you guys. 🙂
I came up with the idea because I had a lack of time to make something better. I found some veggies in de fridge, and thought about making a salad. Then I remembered the couscous my mum recently bought. I finished it in 5/10 minutes, luckily, ’cause I had a movienight planned with my dad and we already bought or cinematickets. There I sat, watching “Dying of the Light” with my couscous.

Recipe
You’ll need:
– 85 gram couscous
– around 1 cucumber
– red bell peper
– 1/2 lemon
– olive oil
– mint
– some nuts (I didn’t put a lot in it, I think make 6 nuts in total)
couscous
Cook some water, and add some salt and oil. When your water is boiling, turn the water off and put the couscous in.
Let them soak for about 3 minutes.
Then turn the gas on, and cook for another 3 minutes, then set it apart to cool down.
Take the skin of the cucumber and cut it together with the pepper and nuts.
Mix it with the couscous, put lemon over it and some mint on top.
Bon appetite! 😉

Feeling a bit sick, but got myself delicious soup!

Hello!

Remember my post about my cold feet yesterday? I should have known, haha. I was cold all day yesterday and today, and I didn’t knew why.
Untill 3 o’clock. I felt horrible, I had stomachpain and threw up.
I’m feeling a bit sick now.
I know that a lot of people have the flu, which is strange ’cause it’s already spring and almost april! Shouldn’t that be over now?
I also always thought that all of the RT4/vegan people had an amazing immune system, but clearly not, haha.
Thank God I have the best mum, ’cause she made me this amazing soup. This is currently my state of mind:

I call it; ‘Bored and feeling like crap’. Hooray.

A delicious vegan soup, with a lot of veggies! She really put everything in it. If this isn’t gonna make me better, what will?
At least I’m getting all my vitamins in. 🙂
A completely different subject; but do you guys have an Instagram account?
I do, and I’m looking for some refreshing, new accounts. So if you want me to follow you, post your name below.

Cold feet

Hey lovely people!

To begin with; if someone knows a solution please share it with me!
Uch, it’s march and here in Holland it’s still cold. And I don’t like that. Particularly now that I’m vegan.
Spring has just began, ans I hoped that with the spring the sun wouls come.
But nope,  the sun decided to stay on the other side of the world.
Too bad for me, and my feet.
I have the coldest feet you could ever think of.
Are there more people with cold bodyparts?
Since I began my vegan life, I started to habe cold hands and feet. Before that they were cold every now and then. Nothing strange.
But now..
I sleep with socks every night!

And even then, they won’t warm up.
I hate cold feet.
I hope that someone recognise this, and might have the solution for warm feet. Thank you!

Love,

For the pigglets

Hey!

I want to mention my veganism one more time.
Because it’s so important, because otherwise it’ll be so cruel.
I know a lot of people, who say that they love animals.
That they care, and can’t stand animalcruelty.
But why aren’t they vegan then?!
Don’t they realise the horror they put on their plate?
I really think that they don’t know, or don’t want to know, what they eat.

I find it hard to realise what they eat, that they just don’t wamt to know what they eat.
They rather stay unknowing, then giving up their meat.
I’m happy that I don’t eat these beautiful pigglets anymore, and I don’t even see them as food anymore.
They are just creatures, like you and me.
Throughout the last months I’ve met a lot of ather vegans, who think the same way.
Im gratefull for that, although I wish there were more people who were vegan.
For the planet, for the animals.

Hospital food; while being a vegan

Hey people!

Time for another blog! Not a happy one this time, ’cause it’s about my last hospitalization. I went there for my IBD. It wasn’t long; I’m back already. But it was hard.
Not only the pain, but also the food. Food is an important factor in my health. If I eat proper and clean I have less pain and I recover in less time.
People with IBD often eat glutenfree and fatfree. So you would say they keep notice of that in the hospital.
Well, think again. I asked them for a vegan meal and that was were they made their first mistake.

Vegan? So you don’t eat meat then? It says here that you can have anything, so would you like the spaghetti with tuna or the patatoes with salmon?

I didn’t even know what to say.
Eventually I got my voice back and I said that I didn’t eat meat, fish or dairy because of my illness. (Thats not the only reason but I doubt that she’ll got it so I tought this was okay)
That she understood. I asked for some veggies, fruit and plain rice.
Within 20 minutes she was back with a small plate of rice and veggies and – Hallelujah- 6 banana’s.

Being a vegan in a hospital. It sure ain’t easy, but I managed.
I hope that next time I find someone who understand me, and the importance of clean food to a healing body.

Love,
