This morning, I made this delicious Vegan & Gluten-free Lemony Hemp protein smoothy! I added a few other healthy things & drank 1 big smoothy as a nice drinkable healthy breakfast! You see?
What is Hemp protein, I hear you say?
Raw 100% organic hemp protein powder is a raw powder from hemp seeds. After the raw hemp seeds are cold pressed & gently milled, the resulting fine green powder can be easily added into your daily breakfasts, smoothies etc.
Hemp seeds are very healthy & an excellent source of minerals, fatty acids & proteins. It is also a healthy source of dietary fiber, chlorophyll, and minerals including magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium. This finely milled powder has a rich, nutty flavor that is ideal for smoothies, baked goods or any recipe that could use a protein and fiber boost.
This morning, I wanted to make a lovely breakfast tofu scramble! I had to use up a few veggies from my fridge! That’s why I call this a Fridge tofu scramble! I added a few spices from my pantry & to keep it vegan & gluten-free, I added a bit of nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor! ;)
Don’t you want a full plate & join me?
I got leftover fresh cranberries that I needed to use up so I invented this Vegan & Gluten-free Warm Quinoa Porridge!

Happy 2015 to you all! I hope you had a fabulous Christmas Season, many presents at Christmas & New Year’s Eve too! :) During these festivities, I ate,…a lot,…and you?

T’s the season to be jolly,…falalalalaaaa,..la,..la,..la,..laaa! :) I put on some great old Christmas songs of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole of Ella Fitzgerald,…In Belgium, we didn’t grew up with these cool old-fashioned great Christmas songs! :(
Every year, my husband Peter & I get a real cool Christmas tree & we decorate it with gold & red balls of glory! Last year, we got this new wooden crafted Christmas Stable,…Just look at it: pretty cool, hey?
This fantastic home-made Vegan Christmas stollen was all invented by me, myself & I aka 2 years ago, but because it is so delicious & amazing, you all must make it this Festive Christmas Season! Even, if you are not a vegan, you will love it! It is a more healthy recipe with a bit of a twist! ;) A little bit naughty but nice,… Like you all know me!
Normally, a Christmas stollen has dried glacé cherries, nuts, candied peel & dried fruit like sultanas in them. I don’t like a lot of these ingredients so I had to make & invent one, my way. Every Christmas, I have to make this for my hubby Peter & family members,…It is not a request, it is a necessity! I know that you all will love it too! :)
Normally, a Stollen is a fruit cake, more like a bread, containing dried fruit and often marzipan and covered with sugar or icing sugar. The cake is usually made with chopped candied fruit and/or dried fruit, nuts and spices. Stollen is a traditional German cake, usually eaten during the Christmas season. It is made with yeast, water and flour, and usually with zest added to the dough. Candied orange peel and candied citrus peel, raisins & almonds, and different spices such as cardamom & cinnamon are added. Other ingredients, such as milk, sugar, butter, salt, rum, eggs, vanilla, other dried fruits, nuts and marzipan can also be added to the Stollen dough. Except for the fruit added, the dough is quite low in sugar. :) The finished cake or bread is mostly sprinkled with icing sugar. The traditional weight of a Stollen is around 2 kg, but smaller sizes are now available. I didn’t add icing sugar on top! I did it this way:
This morning, I made this easy to make no-oil granola! You can change the nuts & use whatever nuts you have in the house, but keep the amounts. You will love it too! I like to serve the granola, still warm, with a good vegan soy yoghurt or with warm home-made cashew milk! ;) This would make an ideal food gift too! :)

A few days ago, I invented this lovely spiced avocado chickpea spread! I added some chopped red onions & spiced it up a bit too! How? Just read on,…:)
Today, I made these lovely wonderful healthy ginger orange chia seed puddings! I made my favorite ginger tea & steeped the chia seeds in it for a while, to absorb the lovely ginger flavors. Then, I added some extra ground ginger to the chia seeds for an extra touch of ginger-flavour! I added some freely squeezed orange juice for the orange flavor. I added a bit of sweetness & placed them in the fridge to stiff up for a while. I topped my puddings with fresh orange parts dipped into vegan dark chocolate! Yum yum yumm!
You can eat this as a filling breakfast or as a yummy dessert! :) If it is a breakfast, make larger portions than these ones! :)
