INGREDIENTS

Crust
– 1 cup buckwheat flakes (change to nuts if you prefer)
– 8 dates

Chocolate Dream
– 2 cups cashew nuts (soaked)
– 2 bananas (more if desired)
– 8 dates
– 3 big tbl coconut oil
– 1/2-1 cup raw cacao
– 4 tbl agave syryp (or other sweetener)

Raspberry Cream
– 1 banana
– 1 cup frozen raspberries
– 1 lime

Decoration
– Homemade peanut butter (optional)

Start with making the crust by putting the ingredients in your food processor. Let ig go until you get a nice and crunchy texture. Divide it into your form. Put it in the fridge meanwhile you prepare the rest of the cake.

Now make the Chocolate Dream and put all the ingredients in your mixer. Blend until you get a nice and creamy texture. The more raw cacao you put in the more epic it will be. Cover the crust with your delicious Chocolate Dream paste. Put it in the freezer meanwhile you prepare next layers. Let it rest for at least 30 minutes before spreading next layer on it.

To make your Vanilla Spread simply put all the ingredients except water in your washed mixer. Add as little water as needed to make it smooth. Put it in a bowl and place it in your fridge.

You can make this cake in two ways. Either you want your Raspberry Cream liquid and prepare it when it is time to serve the cake or you make the Raspberry Cream now and add it to the cake and let the cake rest in the freezer unti it is time to serve.

Take out your Chocolate Dream and if decorate it with the peanut butter (optional). Cover the chocolate layer with Vanilla Spread.

Now make your Raspberry Cream by mixing the ingredients in your clean mixer. Spread it carefully over your cake.

Either you eat it directly or put it in your freezer and serve it later. Make sure to take it out a good while before eating, around 20-30 min.  dream cake 2Buon appetito! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did 🙂

Today´s powerful Words we found on Eckhart Tolle´s facebook page and we want to share them with you:

“Dear Friends,
May I suggest a deeper and somewhat unusual perspective on who you are?
You are not just a person, and you are not IN the Universe.
You ARE the Universe, which IN YOU is awakening, experiencing itself, becoming conscious. That consciousness is who you are in essence. We are all fleeting expressions of it. The Universe awakens THROUGH experiencing challenges and limitations. That means YOU awaken and deepen through your challenges, as does humanity as a whole. So welcome or at least accept all that life brings you. Change what can be changed, otherwise surrender to what IS. Feel the Presence within you as the background to every experience. Know that, as Jesus put it, “you are the light of the world.”
With love
Eckhart.”

Much love,
Julie & Katrin

Pretty good reminder in the texts above, huh? Sometimes it might feel as life goes on just outside our windows. Is the joy and happiness on the other side of the planet? Or maybe just in the bar next door? We all know deep within that the answer is NO. We have the key to love, passion and joy hidden within us. It takes a big dose of courage to be complete silent and truly be with ourselves to be able to find the door. It is so much more easier to turn the TV on, go shopping or do whatever distract our minds than to reach for the key and unlock our innerselves. We believe that eventually we all reach a point where we are either completely disconnected from our natural state of being that is genuine joy and laughter or we come to realize what truly matters. With that said, keep meditating! 😉

Today´s breakfast was delicious! We would of course never share anything that is not super yummie with you. But still it is worth saying thousands of times that this smoothie was like a piece of heaven. It literally felt like our hearts opened for every sip so we simply gave it the suitable name Heart Opener!

INGREDIENTS (1port)
– 1 handful spinach

– 1-2 cup cherries
– 1 tbl chia seeds (soaked overnight)
– 1 tsp chlorella
– 1 tsp maca

We donnot really like to write measurement since there should be no right or wrong amounts. Eat until your heart is happy and take what you have at home. With good and living ingredients it will 99 % turn out delicious! But feel free to use our amounts as guidelines.

Mix all the ingredients and voilá! Enjoy it 🙂

Cut and slice the carrots, tomatoes, avocado, cucumber and bell pepper as you wish. A tip is to make them in different sizes so you can feel the differences when you are eating.

Now take your big leaf and put some salsa on it. Add your cut and sliced veggies. Add your sprouts and cilantro. If you cannot have enough of the awesomesauce add a little extra on the top. Roll your leaf and take a big bite – voilá and welcome to Raw Food Heaven!

Hello precious,

What a beautiful sunny weekend Amsterdam has given us. We appreciate it with our full hearts and have tried to spend as much time as possible outside. Re-charging our Vitamin D levels in our bodies! 😉 We are so happy to hear some of you want to join us on May Meditation MonthRemember that it is never too late to start. There is always time to start to meditate and connect with our inner selves. If you have started practicing, how is it going? If you have any thoughts, ideas, tricks or anything you want to share with us and our friends. Please do so! We have so far meditated every day. Some days for 5-10 min but this morning we started the day with 20 min. Oooh, such a nice feeling! We are still in the beginning of our meditation practice and very so often our thoughts wander away. Therefore, it is even more important to keep practicing. Hopefully within a short time we will be able to quite our minds more and more. In a couple of days we will write a longer post about our thoughts about this. We will also link some guided meditation videos that we have found to be useful! But until then.. keep practicing 😉

Yesterday we met up with a close friend out in Vondelpark in Amsterdam. Perfect weather to enjoy some nice white wine in the sun! Later on we went to the vegetarian (and vegan friendly) restaurnat Golden Temple and enjoyed a Raw Vegan delicious salad. Perfect Raw Crackers made out of different seeds, sun dried tomatoes and herbs. Something we have to try to make ourselves! Later in the evening we craved some dessert so we made a massive portion of Raw Vegan Ice cream. So delicious and super easy to make. This time we made three different flavours; blueberry, raspberries and carob! Have a look at the ingredients if you want to make some vibrant and healthy ice cream to yourself, your family and friends. 🙂

INGREDIENTS
1367752466907Blueberry
– Frozen bananas
– Frozen blueberries
– Dates

Raspberry
– Frozen bananas
– Frozen raspberries
– Dates

Carob
– Frozen bananas
– Dates
– Cinnamon
– Cardamon
– Carob

Mix all the ingredients either in your mixer or food processor. Store it in the fridge or freezer meanwhile you prepare the other flavours. Voilá!

Today´s powerful words by the one and only Eckhart Tolle:

“Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the “love” of
ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs.” 

Love,
Julie & Katrin

 

May Meditation Month

11672_503151933082236_1904173816_n10103_135973886589759_171275188_n 13886_632144483467759_1350743401_nHello beautiful,

We have talked a little bit about meditation earlier with you. We have to admit that we have not been practicing it as much we wish to these last months. However, we have the last month started every single morning writing our appreciation list and we found it truly to be an amazing way to start our days. It sets the perfect love tune for the day and you can literally feel how you rise in frequency. Now we have come to a point when we need to step it up even more. Challenge ourselves on our spiritual journey. So we have decided to dedicate May as our meditation month. We will each day on some point during the day meditate and really make it a powerful habit. We know how amazing it is to close your mind and let go of all those thoughts. Stop identifing ourselves with our minds. The only thing stopping us from really become serious about meditation – is time! No more excuses, thinking of time lacking or whatever we do instead. Nothing is more important than to be in peace with yourself, and the rest will unfold with perfection.

313853_495037340557985_1301825048_nWe will let you know how it is going for us. How we think about it. How we evolve during this month. If we find any good meditation videos online, we will of course share them with you.

But most important, please feel free to join us! You donnot have to meditate every single day if it is not for you. Try to incorporate it to your daily life as much you can and as long it feels good for you. We love to connect with you and hear your wise ideas and thoughts. So please feel free to share! 🙂 Let´s make May the peaceful month. The month we took time to surrender ourselves to this present moment and to ourselves. Time to listen to our inner voice. Feel the guidance. Be one with whatever situation we are in.

Before we leave you or now we want to share this powerful song. Take your time to listen to it and fill yourself with all the energy and love you are here to live and experince. Life is a journey. Embrace every single bit of it. It is here to teach you something on your path.

Love,
Julie & Katrin

Raw Chocolate Balls

13664714337831366471334438

Happy Tuesday to you,

The other day we prepared some Raw Chocolate Balls that we want to share with you today. They are super easy to make and every single ingredient is of course GOOD for you. Once again, healthy life is both delicious and fun! We think it is time to replace your old chocolate treats with these ones and you might ask yourself the same question we did. Why have we not thought about this before?! Keep in mind that you can put whatever you feel for or have at home in your raw balls. We have listed the ingredients we have used this time.

INGREDIENTS1366471318185
– 1 dl walnuts (soaked)
– 1 dl Almonds (soaked)
– 6 medjool dates
– 4 dried figs
– 2 table spoons dried raisins
– 2 table spoons dried cranberries
– 1/2 dl raw cacao
– 1/2 dl carob

Start with putting your dates, figs, raisins and cranberries in your food processor. Process it a couple of times til you get a nice yummie texture. Add your nuts together with raw cacao and carob. Process it until all the ingredients are well mixed.

Start rolling your paste and put them on a plate. Enjoy them with a nice cup of tea, nut milk or why not a glas of red wine! 😉

We wish you a wonderful and healthy day! Remember to live every moment. There is no tomorrow. There is no later. There is only this present moment. You are capable of doing exactly what your heart desires. Let go of the should, must and could and replace them with I am. You are powerful beyond your own knowing and you deserve to live as you intended to live when you came here. There are only two feelings in this world; LOVE or FEAR. Whatever emotions you are feeling belongs either to love or fear. Let go of your fears and everything that does not serve you. Choose love – and you will be left with only love!

We LOVE today´s powerful words from the one and only Eckhart Tolle:

“Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.” 

With our hearts,
Julie & Katrin

Do you recognize your pain body?

pain body pain body.gif 2Hello precious,

Lately we have paid extra attention to our pain bodies. Do you know what it is? Are you aware of yours? Eckhart Tolle has truly opened our eyes and helped us tremendously on our own growth to become the persons we are meant to be. That means letting go of the past, letting go of all that does not serve us, recognize why someone made us feel bad, angry, sad. In the end it has never to do with anyone else. There is noone to blame. Set yourself free by seeing in to you and what is causing your pain. Slowly release it. The greatest tool is truly to stay present! If you have one must-to-do today we highly encourage you with the whole of us to listen to the first video. If you understand it, if you want to know more – listen to the second! Be aware that there is a way out of all negative emotions!

Therefore, today´s powerful words are perfectly and so profoundly said by Eckhart Tolle himself:

“Nobody’s life is entirely free of pain and sorrow. Isn’t it a question of learning to live with them rather than trying to avoid them?

The greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It is self-created as long as the unobserved mind runs your life.

The pain that you create now is always some form of nonacceptance, some form of unconscious resistance to what is. On the level of thought, the resistance is some form of judgment. On the emotional level, it is some form of negativity. The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment, and this in turn depends on how strongly you are identified with your mind.”

Love,
Julie & Katrin

Embrace today!

today-is-the-bestHappy Wednesday to you,

We have some pretty busy weeks in front of us regarding our own company and up-coming projects but at the same time we are very excited about everything that is in this very moment. What we have come to realize so profoundly (we know we are saying it on a daily basis but is worth repeating ;)) that the  only thing that truly matters is this present moment. Life will never happen tomorrow or the day after. Not even in 10 min. All we ever have, and will have… is now! We think we all can agree on that yet the majority of human beings are somewhere else with their thoughts 95 % of the time. We donnot think it is bad to make plans and think about up-coming events if we do it with the puropose to rise our own vibrations to allow ourselves to attract more well-being right now. We love the art of vizualisation and have used it a lot in our last years to create our own reality – and it has worked perfectly! In matter of fact beyond perfectly and we have been amazed over and over again. We had been visulatizing ourselves living in Italy and guess what, we have spent years living la dolce vita over there. Not talking about where we are now BUT we have come to a point on our spiritual journey (thank YOU Eckhart Tolle!!!) and it has truly starting to sink in on the most powerful and profound way that all that is, is this present moment! If we can choose to love and enjoy ourselves right here, right now everything will unfold with perfection and we donnot need to spend a moment of worry in our lives. We have lived enough evidence that universe really does everything for us when we allow it. This is not only a “happy hippie talk” but on the most profound quantom physic level. The day we realized all these facts and information – our lives have been for ever transformed! It simply cannot be for nothing that our planet rotate with perfection around its orbit? Do you not agree? 😉

However, it has taken a lot of conscious work for us to come to this point but it has totally been worth it. We are faaaaar from perfect regarding this but we want to encourage you, if you are aware of your thoughts wandering away a little bit too frequently, to start to take control over your mind. Slowly be in charge over your thoughts and emotions. With time and practice you will be a deliberate creator! The more you rise your awareness about all that is and your own power within – the easier it gets. When you get a hang of the fact that you create every single situation, you can start to use it to your advantage. Oh boy – when you do that you will realize that the fun is here to stay! In the end, is it not what life is all about? Love, laugh, enjoy, share, co-create. 🙂

1366052416102Something that makes us smile is a perfect ripe mango and it is one of our absolute favourite fruits. We indulge in this super delicious “king of fruits” quite frequently. We simply cannot have enough. Luckily mango is not only yummie to enjoy but the health benefits are amazing. So let´s have a look on why you should eat this piece of heaven with a huge and happy appetite!

MANGO`S HEALTH BENEFITS 

  • By eating a cup of mango you get 25 % of your daily value of vitamin A, wich makes wonders for your eyes. Vitamin A promotes good eyesights and prevents night blindness and dry eyes but also vitamin A is an antioxidant vitamin and is giving protection against free radicals that can harm your internal system. With that said, it could be a pretty good way to help the body to stay disease free.
  • Mango is rich in fiber so if you enjoy a mango a day you will definitely be sure you will stay miles away from constipation, piles and spastic colon. Pretty good deal, huh?
  • Mango also contains an enzyme for breaking down protein.
  • Did you know that mango is a true immune system booster? The amazing amount of vitamin C and vitamin A among with 25 different kinds of carotenoids will keep your immune system healthy and strong. Carotenoids together with betacarotene and astragalin – are three very powerful antioxidants that have the power to neutralize free radicals in your body. Heart disease, premature aging and cancer are due to these free radicals. Therefore, we better eat it up with our mangoes!
  • If this is not enough. Mango also contains seleniumcalciumiron and phosphorus. Our powerful friend is also rich in riboflavinvitamin B6/A/C/E/K, niacinfolatethiamin and panthothenic acid. This helps you to stay away from a host of diseases that can come with the deficiencies of these vitamins and minerals.
  • Lastly we also want to add, since we all want to glow on the outside 😉 That mango is an excellent source to get your skin glowing since mango clear clogged pores and eliminate pimples.

1366016066051Before we let you go for now let us present Green Mango Raspberry go Bananas! 😉

INGREDIENTS
– Spinach
– Mango
– Frozen raspberries
– Bananas
– Chlorella
– Maca
– Hemp protein powder

Mix your ingredients in your blender and be ready to thrive!

Today´s powerful words come from Wayne Dyer and we think it suits perfectly with quantom physics and all that is. Never be afraid to explore a new way of thinking: 

“The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.”

Love,
Julie & Katrin

Negative emotions

Hello beautiful,

We are here to remind you that you are loved and you are in the exact place you need to be in this very moment. That you have the power within and that every single one of us truly are powerful beyond what we possibly could be able to fully grasp. But we, as much as you, have moments when we feel out of balance. When we end up in a situation that does not please us. Feelings of loneliness and confusion – simply not up-to-speed with our true inner beings.

Today we want to talk a little bit about this topic with you. Since everyone has feelings and had their part of suffering. With that said, both you and us have felt small, sad, confused, lost, unhappy, betrayed, abandoned and all other not very loving feelings we could line up. There is not a human being that has not. The difference from happy people and unhappy ones are how you choose to handle different situations. We have developed some techniques we use as soon we reach the point when the unpleasent feeling has taken too much of our time and well-being. As we all know by know – the power is within!

We have to explain some energy terms we use, and how we see the world – to be able to fully explain how you can change the way you handle all kind of situations – that it in the end benefits your own growth!

funny-quote-soul-body-C-S-LewisFirst of all we have to understand that all that is – is nothing but energy. Litterly YOU are a stream of energy. If you put yourself under a microscope you will see atoms jumping around. If we all can fully grasp the concept that we are vibrational beings so much more in this world would make sense for us. The movie we linked here will help you to understand what we mean in a much deeper and better way than we are able to explain. With that said. You are a soul (as C.S Lewis call it or whatever you choose to name this energy field) and not your body. When you start to distinguish the greater you from your ego – then magic can start to happen. So what is the greater you? It is simply this big powerful love that is here – God/energy/universe/ or the word you feel most comfortable to use to explain this bigger force you sometimes can feel or if you have practised a lot; you feel it most of the time. When you feel love for someone or something – you are rising in vibrations. You are becoming ONE with all that is. Sadly many of us humans are so used to not feeling good. People only see suffering, wars, hate, rudness – and think this is the world! We cannot argue with them and say it is not true… since it is obviously their point of view. The trick is to change your perspectives and you will start to see less of all those negative experiences and more of the good things. But so many are stuck in a routine of bad emotions and destructive habits – that they donnot even realize it themselves!!!! They are not capable of hearing us speaking. It is simply too far away from there frequency. Our words would make no sense to them.. 😉

734296_354995764613325_727796167_n

So if we all can accept the fact that we are vibrational beings, that we attract every situation, we have no one to blame than ourselves? If YES – then we can change our lives tremendously and never turn back to a place of suffering and playing victim. But we need to accept these facts with our full hearts. When we do – we promise a stretched mind can simply not go back to old believes. You will be transformed for the rest of your life! Your horizons have been widened too far away and when you realize the biggest secret in this world, you cannot pretend you donnot know about it. If you do, you will be badly reminded every time you are out of alignment with yourself. The more aware you get about your emotions, the more sensitive you will also get for the energy field. That means you will more easily feel the energy around you and within you. When you realize this power – you simply cannot avoid it. You better use it to live all your dreams you are here to experience!!! We promise it is the best ride possible and it is simply magical to realize you can do exactly what you wish for. No dreams are too big. Is it not amazing to know? That you are hear to live those dreams? And that it is fully possible? 😀

188992_168541309963536_1407450278_n

Eventhough we might be aware of the power within us and all about energy etc. It is not that easy always to move on. Sometimes we simply need to have had enough to be ready to make a change. We are done with feeling the way we do. Enough is enough. We have many times reached that point ourselves when we have hit the rock bottom! The positive part is that the more negative emotions you feel – the stronger opposite desires you throw out. Wich means, that when you reach a point when you simply have had enough the desire of a change has tipped over and is now stronger than to remain in the same position you are in. When you reach that point something absolutely wonderful and magical happens. Suddenly you are open to hear your inner voice speak. It might come so clear to you that there is simply no point of holding back. You simply have to follow the guidance that is taking you forward, step by step.

The most important part regardless in what state you are in; rock bottom or lighter negative feelings. It is to simply do whatever you can to find peace within it. It might sound difficiult and too far away. You might think “I would feel peace if I was not in this state.. I will feel peace when I am somewhere else!”. We have to say that you will NEVER go to another place before you have made peace with where you are right now. This very precise situation might change but you will manifest it over and over again but in different forms. Whatever you are experiencing is hear to teach you something and will not leave you before it has. It is something that is active in your vibrational field and will come back to you so many times YOU are still having that point of attraction. For instance, how come some people over and over again end up in destructive relationships? They might get rid of a bad lover but soon again they will meet someone else that is treating them in the same way. 

388720_10151618848956617_672584182_n

How do you then change your point of attraction? By finding peace wherever you are. It is as simply as that… or difficult! Wherever you are, whatever you are doing – you have to be fully able to accept the circumstances around you. In a difficult moment when we see no options we have to tell uorselves “Right now, I am where I am. All will be good. In the end I have myself and I am strong. I am here to learn and evolve. This is a part of my journey.“, and take a deep breathe, and one more.. and one more. We tell ourselves this as many times we need until we reach a point when it starts to sink in. No one of us here on this planet would never ever experience anything that we are not fully able to handle. We simply have to change our thoughts about any situation we end up in. When we start to see things as a lesson instead of a punishment, ourselves as students instead of victims – then magic can start to take place!

The most powerful techniques we have developed and use when we found ourselves out of alignment, is simply to STOP – take a break from whatever your mind is trying to force on you. Start talking with yourself. Keep going with a mantra; “All is good. Someting amazing will come out of this. I am fine, deep inside me. Eventhough I might not see it now – I know I will evolve big time after this. Thank you, thank you life for letting me live and explore.”. We start to bless the situation we are in. Thank it for the teaching we might not be able to realize right now but we know we will with time. When we start to thank whatever life is showing us it simply has to turn out to something good. Maybe we donnot see it right now but time will tell. We keep doing this until we reach a tipping point and the good takes over. It is so powerful and works everytime and the more you practice it – the more effective it will be. Every situation we end up in, big or small, try to take a step back. It is your ego that has brought you to this negative situation you are in. When you take a step aside and do everything you can to stay as present as possible – you have the possibility to take a look at your thoughts. While doing that. You create space between YOU and your thoughts and you might realize the most powerful fact that YOU ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS! From that point – you are freeing yourself from whatever surrounds you. When you understand you are not your mind speaking, you are not your thoughts – you automatically create space for better emotions to rise when you set yourself free from the negative situation you were in.

We would like to share some powerful words by Echart Tolle with you:

“When you walk through a forest that has not been tamed and interfered with by man, you will see not only abundant life around you, but you will also encounter fallen trees and decaying trunks, rotting leaves and decomposing matter at every step. Wherever you look, you will find death as well as life. 

Upon closer scrutiny, however, you will discover that the decomposing tree trunk and rotting leaves not only give birth to new life, but are full of life themselves. Microorganisms are at work. Molecules are rearranging themselves. So death isn´t to be found anywhere. There is only the metamorphosis of life forms. What can you learn from this? 

Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal.”

Is it not as powerful as it can get?  We think this applies perfectly even for “bad” and “good” emotions. We need those to evolve. To throw out our desires. To fully understand what we do love and enjoy in life. We need some dancing in the rain to appreciate the sun. We all know this. We might forget it when we feel drained by negativity – but it will change. In the end nothing in this life last forever in that sence. The only constant thing is CHANGE! Good times are here for all of us 🙂

With our hearts,
Julie & Katrin
