Hello there guys! I am back! My holiday has come to an end…. It’s been a beautiful week. I spent it at home with my closest friends and family. The weather was nice – 35 degrees every day. I spent half of my holiday at the beach – not complaining. I recharged my batteries and I am ready to go.
Today is the 31st day of being vegan and now I think that it’s not a challenge anymore – it’s a way of eating. I lost almost 7 kg already and I feel great. I spoke to all of my friends about that and they still can’t believe that I am doing this. But their curiosity makes them try my new way of eating and they might even consider doing it for a week or two – hopefully more.
I already started working on my new project called “Why Vegan?” and you have to get ready for big surprises. I can only say that I will start spreading the word about what being vegan really means, with the help of some big names!
OK, now it’s time for our new recipe – it’s another dessert! I prepared for you some peanut butter, oat flakes and banana cookies with maple syrup, chia seeds, flax seeds and cinnamon. They are super easy to prepare and you need to bake them for 30 minutes. The cookies are very tasty when they are still a bit warm.
Have a look at the instructions.
- 2 soft bananas
- 50 ml of maple syrup
- 50 gr of oat flakes
- 2 tbsp of peanut butter
- 1 tbsp of flax seeds
- 1 tbsp of chia seeds
- ½ tsp of cinnamon
- Mix everything nicely - if it's very thick you can always add some more maple syrup, or if it's a bit more liquid, you can add some oats to thicken it up
- Form the cookies onto a baking paper and bake into a preheated oven to 180 degrees, for about 30-35 minutes, until brown
These are my first vegan cookies – I didn’t shape them well, but I wasn’t sure if they will spread around while cooking. They just kept their shape throughout cooking, so next time I know that I should pay more attention while preparing them.
One of people’s concerns about going vegan is that they will never eat anything sweet again. But to be honest, a real dessert can always be vegan and you don’t need to be looking for substitutes – there are more than enough natural sources of sweetness in the world. And you don’t lose even 1% of the real taste – it’s even better knowing that what you put inside your body is good for you.
Living healthy is all up to you – making better choices. You just need to spend a bit more time on thinking what’s good and what’s bad – it’s more than obvious. Because at the end – you are the one that gets affected by all the choices that you make for yourself and nobody else – you just have to decide whether you are ready to jump into this adventure and become vegan. There is nothing wrong with that – just think about eating real food with real ingredients. Does it make sense to you?
I will now leave you alone with your thoughts and I wish you a nice day!
Thanks for being with us.
