Mango Nice Cream Madness

  Personally, I can’t live without ice cream. However I never used to eat a lot fearing that it would make me fat. Since going vegan, it’s all I eat.

Ingredients (serves 2): 1 frozen mango (at least overnight, chopped into smaller pieces) Handful of walnuts (the crunchier  the best!) 2 dates 1 banana 1/4 cup of rice milk (or coconut milk) 1 tbsp agave syrup Sprinkle of chia seeds Directions: Take the mango out of the freezer and let for 3 minutes (so your blender doesn’t break) Put the mango pieces and the banana in the blender (it is very important that you cut it into small pieces, otherwise it will take more time to form the creamy texture) Add the…

How I Survived On Holiday

So I’d say stock up on fruits and nuts that you can have for breakkie and for snacking. Lunch: Lunch was a bit tricky because we ate at the…

Vegan on the moon?

   Almost about a month ago, I made a decision which was a big step for me, and in general, also big for mankind. I have decided to try a 1 Week Vegan Challenge, and on the 8th day, I knew I wasn’t going to stop. Unlike what I expected, it wasn’t tough at all. I had and have the opportunity to enjoy everything I’ve enjoyed until this time in my life, in a cruelty-free way. I had the idea that it was going to limit me from feeling the sense of hunger that I wholeheartedly enjoyed, but on the contrary, switching to veganism made me feel fuller than ever without the awful feeling of being bloated. My vegan diet has completely taken away my heartburns that I used to get after a greasy meal…
