Muffins!

Banana, Date and Walnut Muffins, yum! I made these muffins yesterday for breakfast and filled up the freezer for the week to come. Yet, these are also great next to your coffee, as an office snack, before or after training, anytime actually. I have chosen to go all plantbased, but that does not mean you have to. If you go for the not plant based version just remove the plantbased milk and chia-eggs from the ingredient list below and use 3 eggs. My choice to go entirely plant based is health, animal welfare and environmentally related, all in equal portions. If you would like more information on any of this, don’t hesitate to drop me a message through email! Anyway, let’s bake some muffins! Ingredients: 2 cups of almond flour 2 tsp baking soda Pinch of sea salt 1 tbspn cinnamon 1 cup of dates, pitted and chopped 3 ripe bananas 3 chia-eggs ( 3 tbspns chiaseed +7,5 tbspns water ) 1 dl plant based milk of your choice. I used soymilk yesterday. Tomorrow might …

Breakfast or snack smoothie – Banana Almond

Smoothies are some or the easiest and fastest things to make for breakfast and / or snacks. Totally some of my favourites as you can either choose to sit down and enjoy your smoothie while just breathing and just being, as well as when you have one of those mornings or days when you just can’t get to take a longer breakfast or break you can have your smoothie while working. Just throw the following in the blender and mix!   1 frozen banana 1,5 cups vegan 🌱 milk 🥛 1 tbspn almond butter 1 tbspn chia seeds 2 dates 1 tspn wheatgrass powder (optional) 1 tspn rosehip powder (optional) A few ice cubes Enjoy!  

Vegan oven pancakes

“Just trust the process”. “Be open to everything”. Yes, this morning was one of those mornings that those two expressions made me look wider than what was in front of me and to my eyes in that moment wasn’t working. I was about to make these totally yummy almond butter bars for breakfast. I had about 30 minutes and a busy day ahead. Getting the recipe out, starting with adding the chia seeds to the water for the “chia eggs”, then switching on the oven while I was sipping my freshly made matcha oat milk latte I could hardly wait to taste these yummy bars after meditation. You see, that was the plan – let the almond butter bars bake in the oven as I was in my morning meditation. The third ingredient on the list was apple puree. And when I make these bars I always make my own homemade, sugarfree apple puree the night before. Not last night I didn’t. Crap! What am I going to do now? The whole morning starts to …

Anatomy of Peace – Yoga Workshop

Peace, stillness, quiet, rest, suppleness, ease, “rust”…. Sometimes it feels pretty far away, yet it is something you carry within you all the time. You hold the switch and can actually decide when to switch it on – and off. Once you understand the anatomy of peace, it will be a lot easier to both practice and achieve it. We will look at the anatomy of peace from the perspective of the physical body, from the perspective of the mental body (aka the brain and nervous system), from the perspective of hormones and hormone production, from the perspective of yoga philosophy and quantum physics. All in a language and movements (and rest J), that anyone and everyone can understand – the point being that you can take the knowledge and practices home to easily be put to use in your life from the moment you leave the studio. Warm welcome for this first workshop of this kind. Saturday / Zaterdag 11/5 13.00 – 15.00 EVA’Z Yoga & Pilates, Heemstede € 37 :- , incl btw, …

Overnight buckwheat porridge

I am trying out so many different overnight puddings, overnight oats, overnight buckwheat recipes lately and they are all so yummy that I find myself superstoked about these breakfasts. What more do you need than a breakfast which takes less than 3 minutes to prepare when you get up in the morning, a breakfast which is yummy, healthy, good for you and good for the planet simultanously and guarantees that you are full for at least 3 – 4 hours? When my alarm goes off in the morning, I don’t think I need anything else in that moment ;-). So here’s today’s version of the overnight buckwheat porridge. It is for one portion, but I usually make more and put the rest in the fridge for the coming 2 mornings as well. Ingredients 1 dl buckwheat groats 0,5 dl sunflower seeds 3 dl water 1 dl raspberries 1/2 banana 1/2 dl plant based milk of your choice 1/2 tspn ceylon cinnamon Top with : berries, fruit, seeds, nuts   How to Soak the buckwheat groats …
