We got some comments lately that our lifestyles are quite extreme and first we almost got chocked and went like “whaaat extreme?! In what way?!”. Shortly after it totally hit us. Of course we are extreme if you compare to what the majority of the people on our planet think is “normal”. The thing is we have now come to a point when it comes so natural to make the choices we do on a daily basis. We have passed the tipping point when you go from creating a habit to actually living it. It does not longer feel like we have to adapt our way of living since this now is our lifestyle. Oh boy, never felt better! 😉
We have told you before but it can be worth repeating, that so much more than we ever could be able to imagine has followed on our journey. When changing our eating habits 100 % a whole package of insights and well-being came along. We have to admit, we never went vegans in the first place due to ethical reasons. We decided to go vegans because our bodies and our inner voices were screaming for a change. After only a couple of days as vegans we felt so good and the inner voice kept nodding us to continue on this journey. Ten days later we made the transition to a Raw Vegan Lifestyle and now five months later we have not looked back. So much has happened during these months. Not only in our bodies but also on a mental, physical and spiritual level. Our bodies were (and still are) filled with toxic and we did suffer quite some from detoxification and we are in matter of fact still detoxing. When your body is filled with toxins, so is your mind, and you simply cannot see clearly. These last months have truly brought so much that we donnot even know where to start. First of all when we clean ourselves on all levels we are not only getting rid of toxins that could lead to diseases but we are also letting go of emotional “diseases” as fears, anxiety, doubts, uneasiness. Slowly but steadily all those emotions will leave since there is simply no space left for negativity in a healthy mind. Let us explain.
When eating exactly what Mother Nature is here to provide us with you will automatically develop such a beautiful relationship with everything that is around us. You are forced to step outside the world you were born into and start to question your way of thinking and living. Why am I doing like this? You will most likely open your eyes and realize what a cruel business the whole meet and diary industry is. A stretched mind cannot go back! The spiritual journey… oh dear. We donnot even know where to start. It has been and is still beyond beautiful. The connection with our planet, our bodies and our minds keep evolving all day, every day. The more clean we become the clearer we see and our lives purposes become more and more distinct. We can feel our heart desires beat louder for each day that passes. In this way we are automatically creating space for our inner voice to guide us through life. How would it be possible to hear and connect with our true inner and pure selves when we are filled with toxins and negativity?
Today we want to share our Raw Buckwheat Porridge with you. We have already made one post with it but today we will share our all time favorite version. It is super easy to make and it is delicious and healthy. If you like the porridge texture but are looking for a grain free version – this is for you! We love to start some days with with raw buckwheat porridge since you really become perfectly full. You will be satisfied and filled with energy but never to that point that you feel heavy. The best part is that when we make this yummie breakfast we donnot need to eat for hours. It is truly the perfect breakfast if you know you will be up and running the whole day and need something to fuel you well!
– 1/2-1 cup raw buckwheat (soaked overnight)
– 2 bananas
– 3 dates
– 1-2 tsb maca
– Berries (serving)
Use the measurement only as a guideline. If you want it sweeter add more dates more filling add more bananas etc.
Start the night before and put your raw buckwheat in a bowl with water. Let it soak over night.
In the morning first rinse and wash your soaked raw buckwheat before you put it together with the other ingredients in your mixer. Let it go until you get a nice and creamy porridge. Serve it with berries!
Before we let you go for now we want to share today´s powerful words by Hamdan-Adan-Ismail:
“Real power lies in freedom; because power is determined not by how much we can control, but by how much we can let go. And letting go is more difficult than holding on.”
