Childhood favorite: tortilla de patatas and aioli

The recipe below is one of my childhood favorites. Tortilla de patatas, or “Spanish omelet”, is a dish that’s perfect in all it’s simplicity.
Every once in a while my mom would make a big tortilla de patatas and I would just love it. It took me a while to realize I could veganize the recipe and I am so glad I did. Together with the aioli you have yourself a crowd-pleaser.
The aioli is a great condiment with other foods, too. It’s super easy and great for your next barbecue, fries- or nacho-night.

Vegan favorites: Disneyland Paris edition

Just two days ago I came back from Disneyland Paris. I LOVED it.

After coming back I figured I should put up another “vegan favorites” blog for my vegan travel series. It’s hard to really call these foods “favorites” as Disneyland Paris is notoriously ill-suited for vegans (but for the sake of maintaining some coherence in this vegan-travel-series the title remains).
It is perfectly possibly to visit Disneyland Paris as, or with, a vegan. You just have to know where to go and what to get.

Vegan Gluten Free Granola

A little while ago I was craving granola. 
But I wanted a gluten free and relatively healthy one as it just makes me feel way better.
With a couple of ingredients I had lying in the pantry I made this granola and it’s been my go-to ever since. It’s crunchy, nutty and a little sweet.

I love having this with a smoothiebowl, soy yoghurt or (my latest obsession) chia pudding, homemade chia jam and peanut butter.Read More »

Every woman should read this book!

Hey everyone,

It’s taken a while but I’m back with a book-post (the last one I posted was when I was still in New Orleans, which means it was over a year ago, which means that I almost had to give up my name “veganandherbooks”).

Today, I want to introduce to you a book that is life-changing, uplifting and inspiring.
I’m talking about Body Positive Power by Megan Jayne Crabbe.Read More »

Back to me

A little while ago, I let go of some people that had played a big role in my life. It wasn’t that they did something to hurt me. It was just that, over time, I started to realize they were adding more negativity than joy to my life. While this was definitely the right thing to do, letting go of people who you have been around for a long time is taxing. Over time you learn to identify yourself by the people you hang out with. You start wondering whether you were a bitch for no longer investing time and effort into someone who didn’t purposely hurt you and who’s been with you for so long. You never thought you would do something like that. After days, weeks, months even, you still wonder whether you did the right thing.Read More »

Summer

Hello everyone,

I’ve been living in a strange state these weeks.
I’ve got so many ideas running through my head. Projects to start here on my blog, things to do photography-wise, new things to cook, ideas for books (!). I want to start them all. I want to have the time to write a book. To be able to put all my creativity and effort into creating some wonderful piece of imagination that helps people. Makes them smile.

Healthy vegan chocolate chip cookies

A little while ago I was really in the mood for cookies. But the problem: the ones in the supermarket are almost completely non-vegan. And most recipes online require tons of sugar, vegan butter or oil. So I decided to make some “healthier” vegan chocolate chip cookies. These are fluffy, light and almost like little cakes. They kind of remind me of the Lenny & Larry cookies.

They obviously don’t taste like the super unhealthy chocolate chip cookies from the store, but if you’re feeling like them and don’t want to be super unhealthy these are a great way to get your choc-chip-fix.

So I hope you enjoy this recipe. If you make them please let me know in the comments below what you think.

Healthy vegan fruitcake

I love food and I love to eat. I always have. As you may expect, this means that I like snacks, too. But for a couple of years, now, I have been focused on being really healthy. So how can I snack healthily?

Well, I’ve come up with a recipe for little cakes that are really healthy, have no added sugar, are completely vegan and gluten free. These little cakes can be made two different ways, depending on your mood or preference. But I suggest switching them off. That way you won’t get bored of them.Read More »
