Sprouts are true wonders of nature. They can be sown every day of the year and neither need ground nor direct sunlight. In a few days, the vitamins contained in the original seeds multiply up to 1200% and a glass filled with sprouts develops from a handful of seeds. In addition, they are great additions to your plates.
In this article, you’ll learn how you can grow sprouts yourself in easy steps and how you can use the sprouts in your everyday life. In addition, at the end of the article, there is a sweepstake to win a sprouts glass and a seed package. 😉 Continue Reading
As you may already know, we are very interested in Japanese culture and love Japanese food. As a consequence, it was a great experience for us to get to know the only Ryokan in Europe. A Ryokan is a traditionally decorated Japanese hotel. At the Ryokan Hasenberg, located in the heart of Switzerland, you’ll find a very diverse culinary offer. Guests can choose between the sushi bar, the à la carte restaurant and the exquisite Kaiseki restaurant called Usagiyama. We enjoyed a wonderful Kaiseki menu, which consisted of eight courses.
Here our Kaiseki gourmet menu review for the Ryokan Usagiyama in Widen. Continue Reading
Recently, we made an excursion to Münsingen at lunchtime to discover the bioschwand. The bioschwand is a competence center consisting of a hostel, a conference house, and a restaurant. Also, it is a place of encounter, focusing on all kinds of offers and events regarding the philosophy of organic production. We got to know the rich lunch buffet in the self-service restaurant.
The next days and weeks we have planned exclusive 4-course gourmet dinners and big vegan brunch events in Zurich, Bern and St. Gallen. As always, everything is plant based, organic and wholesome. In addition, we will have a dessert cooking show at this year’s Veganmania in Gossau (St. Gallen, Switzerland). We are looking forward to this exciting time and to seeing you until then we would like to share with you, our journey to building our own ecological house.
The dream of absolute personal freedom. Like the birds, living day by day, flying freely and getting everything you need to live from the world. Nutrition, companions and the joys of life. Despite their comparatively simple way of life, the birds lack nothing. They are independent of social pressure and the system, free from the rat race.
If the birds can do it, why can’t we? If you share the dream of personal freedom with me, this article is for you.
Here you will find the steps and components for the construction of an ecological house and how we plan to implement this in our life. Continue Reading
I hope you’re all enjoying spring. Spring is my favorite season of the year. I love how everything is starting to grow and live again. Furthermore, I really enjoy those sunny days that are not too hot yet, but still refreshing. Among others, nature offers us wild garlic that has the potential to transform any dish even if you add only a small amount thanks to its strong flavor. Today, I show you how I use it in a super creamy white sauce that tastes awesome combined with homemade lentil balls.
We were invited to a 5-course gourmet dinner and to stay a night at the Hotel Swiss in the town of Kreuzlingen near Lake Constance. The Hotel Swiss is the first and only 100% vegan hotel in Switzerland. This applies to the food as well as the textiles and the personal care products in the bathrooms. On Friday evening, the operator and top chef Raphael Lüthy and his team offer the mentioned 5-course gourmet dinner, where individual courses can also be ordered. We were curious of we could expect.
I use my muffin cups very often. Since we travel a lot, we need snacks that can be easily transported. Sweet muffins with all kinds of flavors of fruits, spices, and nuts are excellent. But sometimes we need something salty on the road. Thus, the idea of vegetable muffins has arisen. They are perfect as a salty snack, as a lunch on the go for example with a lentil salad, as a hearty breakfast, as a starter with a green salad, as a party snack for children as well as for adults or as part of a picnic. You can enjoy them either warm or cold. They are healthy and completely plant-based, have a perfectly moist consistency and taste delicious. For a gluten-free version, you can use brown rice flour. That works very well. Depending on the season, you can vary with the vegetables. In summer, for example, the leeks can be replaced by zucchini. The following suggestion with carrots and leeks is our favorite and fits in the beginning of spring. So start baking! 🙂
If you are like me, you ask yourself the question how we can make the world a better place for all of us. In other words, “How we can change the world”. I’ve connected with 10 extraordinary people, activists, entrepreneurs, “polar bears” and book-writers, who all contribute in their way to change the world. Their answers were surprising, interesting and inspiring.
Even though I do not agree with all the answers, they all enrich my view of the world and lead me to think and go new ways. I hope they do this for you too.
