Minimalism. Or: Freedom begins in your mind.

Compared to many people in this part of the world, my lifestyle is quite minimalistic. Not much material safety. Minimalism, though, is not limited to material things. But, even more, refers to my mindset, my attitude, the way i handle life and its challenges

Years ago, mostly unaware of this, i started getting rid of stuff. Material ballast. Overcoming some of my fears and finding new courage … a journey still going on and leaving me feeling more and more free with each step.

Liberate yourself by practised minimalism, in all respects.

Raw Vegan Keto Golden Milk - Happy Healthy Raw & Free

Golden Milk. Turmeric Latte. Raw, vegan, keto.

An almost classical autumn drink for many, especially those integrating ayurveda in their diet and lives: golden milk. Aka turmeric latte, as the main ingredient, besides many more wonderful spices, is turmeric, which is known to have lots of health benefits.

As the original recipe for turmeric latte is not raw nor vegan, i have been creating my own recipes now for years. This year, fitting into my ketogenic diet, i came up with this raw, vegan and ketogenic/lowcarb recipe:

What you’ll need for the raw vegan golden milk:

Marvelous body. All disease is a reaction to what you feed your body and your soul with

“Each of our cells is made of parts of the world that we have absorbed and transformed, all of which are enchanted food.”

A quote by Catherine Newmark.

Nutrition, but also everything else that nourishes our body, mind and soul, contributes to our health. Disease is not a consequence of viruses or bacteria, but a reaction to what we absorb.

Our body is doing its best to detoxify. To cleanse. To heal. All the time. Aging, too, is not as inescapable as you may think. What commonly is thought to be unavoidable is also a consequence of your diet, your habits, your mindset and living in accordance with your soul.

raw vegan homemade coconut butter - Happy Healthy Raw & Free

Homemade Raw Coconut Butter

Finding amazing fresh, ripe coconuts in the local health store last week provided me with the opportunity i had been waiting for for a while: to try out making my own raw coconut butter. From fresh coconuts. Much lower in price than the store bought one, really raw for sure, and mainly as fresh as possible!

It’s really easy – this is how i did it:

Meal Planning

Planning your meals can be a powerful tool in transitioning your diet and in establishing healthier eating habits.

Do you plan your meals? Weekly, day by day, not at all?

Read here, how i do it. Why i do it. And how planning your meals can help you transitioning to a healthier, more conscious way of eating.

How much and how accurate i plan my meals differs a lot, depending upon my current situation. If travelling, staying, the possibilities of getting my food and so on.

Note: Of course you don’t necessarily need to plan your meals to succeed and thrive living on a raw diet! It CAN be a great tool for transitioning. And, for regaining your balance if necessary.

Me, i did not do any meal planning when going raw so many years ago. I simply enjoyed this newly discovered abundance. And most of the time, i still live and eat like this. Just in times, like now, i plan my meals. Why, how, and how meal planning might be helpful for you too – this is what this article is about.

Nutfree Raw Vegan Keto / Lowcarb RawReos

Though O*reos in some countries may be vegan, they are everything else but healthy. Missing treats like this? Try to make your own! I already shared a recipe at Facebook and Instagram for raw vegan ketogenic O*reos (aka RawReos) some weeks ago – find it here. Those are based on almonds, and as some people asked for a almond- and nutfree version, i now created these:

Try them both, and let me know which ones you prefere!

Ingredients:

  • 20g chia seeds (i use these)
  • 15g hemp seeds (bought mine here)
  • 1 tsp psyllium seeds (husks)
  • fresh blackberries (amount depends upon how juicy they are)
  • 2 tsp hemp butter (ich use this one)
  • 3 tsp water
  • stevia (leaves, dried and ground) (can be bought here)
  • 1/2 tsp psyllium seeds / husks

Instructions:

Grind chia and hemp seeds with your blender. Add blackberries by and by until the mixture forms a dough. Roll out the dough and cut circles.

For the filling, stir all remaining ingredients with a spoon and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. The mixture will have thickened then, so you can form small soft balls from it. Place one ball between two of the cookie circles.

Nut Nougat Chocolate Cream, Raw, Vegan, Keto/Lowcarb – Recipe

No matter, how much i have to do (and there is a lot these days), i do eat at some point in between. So new recipes are coming up all the time. Lately, i created this new variation of a raw, vegan, lowcarb (keto!) nut nougat cream. One more RawTella. Delicious and absolutely addictive 🙂 … yet much better for your body than all these nut nougat creams your supermarket offers. And sometimes it just has to be chocolate, no?! 😉

This is a very fresh version of RawTella, so you cannot store it and have to eat it right away. No self-discipline needed 😉 😀

So today i want to share the recipe with you. Here it comes!

The Magic of Chocolate

One more creation from my witch’s kitchen. Raw vegan chocolate parfait. Created, like lots of my recipes, due to my daughter’s wish. Her current favourite manga is “The Magic of Chocolate”, and she gave me this picture as her “order”:

It’s both, heart-cooling and warming, and addictively yummy.

So here is the recipe for you. Enough for two, and filling enough to replace your lunch. Enjoy it after a big bowl of greens, and you will be satisfied for the rest of the day!

– 1/2 cup water
– 2 bananas
