#Challenge22 is done! Lessons learned and a list of my favorite recipes so far

Today is a good day. I’m celebrating finishing Challenge22 – eating vegan for 22 days. Yay! It has been an amazing journey (like the last time) – but this time I’m never going back. Once again, my skin problems (a weird allergy to something still unknown) has disappeared and I no longer take antihistamine every [...]

I have never tried blending a soup before. Blending a hot soup apparently does not sit well with a Brazilian blender (thought they liked it hot?).

#Challenge22 – Day 3 + 4 (The near death and zombie edition)

The near death experience had nothing to do with food. But it was catchy right? No, we just had an experience with a night blind driver, speeding like crazy, driving opposite traffic and parking in the middle of the high way. Not good for blood pressure! Actually I just wanted to share something about January [...]

#Challenge22 – Day 1 + 2 (the New Year train wreck edition)

Okay - so maybe it wasn't exactly the best decision to start a vegan challenge the day before New Years Eve... Being on the road for most of the weekend. But I absolutely learned some priceless lessons. First of all - I learned how hungry you can get when walking around in an airport smelling [...]
