Raw Crackers

Hello Lovely,

We hope you have had a fruitful week and now ready for the weekend to begin. We are as ready as we can be! We are going to make sure to enjoy everything Amsterdam has to offer as much as we can this weekend because it is our last days here for some time. We have not have had enough of Amsterdam though and will be back in the fall. Things have taken rapid turns lately and we are actually going to Sweden on Tuesday. We have a busy work schedule ahead of us and realized it is much more convenient for us to be located in Sweden before our departure to Ghana. Sweden in the summer is also so the best time of the year so we have to choose wisely when it is time to go back home. 😉crackers4Last weekend when we had Julie´s rawesome birthday aperitivo we prepared Raw Crackers and want to share the recipe with you. Raw crackers are for example great to have on a buffé table, enjoyed with a salad or as a snack just as they are or with a spread. The crackers are super easy to prepare and the oven or dehydrator is pretty much doing the work for you. Can it get any better? 🙂

INGREDIENTS
– 2 cups flax seeds
– 1 cup sesame seeds
– 0,5 cup pumpkin seeds
– 0,5 cup sunflower seeds
– 5 sundried tomatoes (more or less)
– 10 olives (more or less)
– Herbs

Start by soaking the seeds over night. You are going to notice that the flax seeds get a slimy fluid which is also the secret with these crackers.

Therafter place all the seeds in a bowl and stir so they mix well. Chop the sundried tomatoes and olives into small pieces and add to the seed mixture. Use a baking sheet and place an oven paper on it. Spread out the seed mixture and flavour it with some herbs. Now it is time to place it in the oven on 40 Celsius degrees but you can also use a dehydrator if you have one. Let the crackers be in the oven until crunchy and easy to break. This takes some time in the oven, about 8-10 hours. Voila, ready to be enjoyed!

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.”

cilantro lime dip 2cilantro lime dip 1We also have some more recipes to share from Julie´s birthday weekend. This one is a Refreshing Cilantro Lime Dip which is perfect to serve with cucumbers, carrots, selery or whatever you fancy to dip with. It is a really yummie alternative for a healthy dip plus it is super easy to prepare.

INGREDIENTS
– 1,5 cups sunflower seeds
– 1,5 cups pumpkin seeds
– 1/2 – 1 cup lime
– 3-4 bunches of cilantro
– 4 tbl fresh parsley
– 1/4 tsp Cummin
– Salt and pepper (to taste)
– Chilli (to taste)
– Water (if needed)

Place all the ingredients except the cilantro and water in the food processor and process until smooth. You can add water as much as you want depending on how smooth you want the dip. Chop the cilantro one bunch at a time and add until you get an awesome refreshing flavour and consistency.  As for the spices the measures are just guidelines so feel free to play with them, there are no right and wrong.

Another tip is also if you wish to reduce the amount of seed intake to add extra cilantro instead. This dip is perfect now when the Summer is around the corner. Make sure you enjoy it with a bright smile because it is that good! 🙂

Today´s powerful words by Joss Whedon:

“Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping… waiting… and though unwanted… unbidden… it will stir… open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us… guides us… passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love… the clarity of hatred… and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we’d know some kind of peace… but we would be hollow… Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we’d be truly dead.”

Love,
Julie & Katrin

GHANA a dream come true

Hello beloved friend,

How are you doing today? We hope that your week has started off in the best way possible. Amsterdam has not shown its best side these past two days with constant rain. So today we are hiding the rains with warm mint teas at one of our favorite coffee bars meanwhile we are working. At the moment we have an overload of work and planning to do. A lot of things are going on as you might know and we have been quite busy lately which also has its reasons. We are feeling very inspired and excited about our up-coming projects and feel its about time to share our exhilaration also with you! 🙂

First we want to begin by saying that we never ever thought that we would be where we are now. Our lifestyle transformation going raw vegans just some months ago have opened up new doors for us and we are still amazed how everything has unfolded with such a great timing. For us this is the realization of our dreams. We are not just connecting with so many loving people worldwide but our new healthy lives have also led to other positive things. Our new clean lifestyles have made us more conscious and we are always looking for healthy food choices. In the early spring an idea came to us about sundried tropical fruits. We started to play with the idea to have our own brand and production of sundried tropical fruits and we got so into it that we could not leave this idea behind. Instead we started to talk about our ideas with people. For some magic reasons we happened to talk to the right people with the right contacts at the right time. So here we are setting up our own sundried mango production in Ghana! Is not this universe simply amazing?! Dream. Believe. Receive.

ghana 1 ghana 3

In mid-July we will be going to Ghana to initiate a first pilot project. During this process we also want to incorporate you in our jorney we are undertaking so that you will be able to follow what is going on out in the field. It is so easy to forget but there is always an individual behind every bite of food we eat in the western world. We want to give the often forgotten farmers in remote areas in the world attention. The farming and in our case mango is their livelihood and they put a lot of effort and love into it. Sadly they donnot get sufficient income for it and barely make it to go around. Our sundried mango project will support community development and is a step to take farmers out of poverty. The farmers are waiting for us and we cannot wait to go there to get this started for real!

What do you think? Are you as excited as we are? 😀 New adventures are around the corner and we are thrilled to have you on our journey as well! There is so much love to be spread in our world.

Therefore, today´s powerful words by Howard Thurman goes perfectly with our main purpose, to Live our Dreams and Breathe our Passion:

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

With all our love,
Julie & Katrin

Birthday weekend!

Hello beautiful,

It is Julie´s birthday today and we organized a rawesome aperitivo yesterday for our friends! It was so much fun to prepare all the food and now we have plenty of recipes to share with you. Stay tuned we will start to post recipes from tomorrow and on! It was so much fun to see our non raw vegan friends enjoy the food, drinks and good times together. Perfect occasion to experiemt in the kitchen and oh boy it turned out DELICIOUS! We made some mini raw pizzas, raw crackers, different raw dips and raw cakes. Mmhmmm so good! So be ready for a rain of recipes in these days 😉

Now we are about to hit the town and enjoy ourselves and Amsterdam. So talk soon again and we wish you a beautiful day! Remember you are precious and in the right place exactly right now, right here. Open your eyes and see the beauty you are surrounded by. Feel with your heart. Be friend with your intuition. Follow your heart desires.

Live the Change and some Raw Buckwheat Porridge

940842_466998560051612_1737625495_n 61506_437634719661493_385110871_nHappy shining Wednesday!

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! 😉

9602_496760287054734_345508908_n10103_135973886589759_171275188_n

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?

buckwheat 1

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!

INGREDIENTS
– 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.”

Meditaiton vs Excitment?!

62458_442327092518759_1933591770_n 62820_443302285756764_1314741562_n 73954_579886332044817_1419730147_n

Hello beautiful friend,

How are you? Did you have a good start of the week? 🙂 Our fast-speed week continues but it is all fun and we still feel very energized. As we mentioned before, the key to be able to be up and running with a lot of good vibes truly depends on what you put in your month, exercise and your sleep. Equally important for your whole well-being! If you sleep well during the night, eat high nutrition food and move your body – you will reach new levels of energy in a short time. It is all about finding balance and listen to your body.

How is our May Meditation Month going? Do you find time for meditation? Is it getting any easier for you? We have been meditating every day but we have to admit that it has not always been that easy. This last week has been pretty busy and we have been out all day long and many evenings/nights as well. It has been quite tricky to manage to calm down and really find the total peacefulness in such a short time. Specially when we feel so high on life and excited more or less 24/7 😉 We know it is even more important in those moment to really take our time to quiet the mind. So that is our challenge for now. Learn to go from a lot of fun work and crazy ideas running around in the head to complete silence. But we are working on it! Please feel free to share your thoughts with us. We love to hear from YOU.

Right now we are in a coffe place in Jordaan in Amsterdam. Sipping on a carrot/apple/ginger juice and working. Such a wonderful feeling to bike through Amsterdam in the early morning. It is always a special feeling in cities in the morning. The coffe bars are opening up, the smell of fresh coffe (eventhough we donnot drink any atm..it still smells sooo good!), people are biking to work. Simply a whole new day filled with new opportunities!

Before we leave you for now we want to share our breakfast with you. It was delicious and as you might have noticed the last week we are totally hooked on berries. We guess it is a sign that summer times are coming (eventhough it feels like winter outside) so let´s have some Mango Berry Cooler to give ourselves the perfect start for a brand new beautiful day!

INGREDIENTS

– Bananas
– Dates
– Frozen raspberries

– Chlorella
– Maca
– Flaxseed (topping)

Mix all your ingredients. Top it with some flaxseeds. Enjoy!

Today´s powerful words by David Icke:

“The reason most people don´t express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what prime ministers think of us or the head of federal reserve. It´s what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.”

So let´s free ourselves. Today we choose to surrender ourselves with ourselves. Nothing is more important than focus inwardly. What someone else thinks and says about  us, is non of our business. We are perfect in our own existence. We are unique as we are.

Much love,
Julie & Katrin

We hope you having a good start of this week. It is a new week filled with new possibilities. After our morning walk and refreshing breakfast this morning we decided to take our bikes to the centre and work at a café in Jordaan. To have the freedom to be able to work at places where we feel the inspiration at the moment is something we highly value and feel so grateful for. It has not always been like this and it is not until recently we have come to truly live our dreams.

It is almost exaclty one year ago when we were in Amsterdam on a shorter stay. We sat at a coffe place, actually very close to where we are right now, talking about our dreams and what we see ourselves do in the future. We have always been certain that we want to have our own business that we run together. We did not determine when it would be because knowing the universal laws we did not want to stress it because one day the timing would just be right. Despite this fact we both have always felt like home here in Amsterdam and we were very clear with the fact that we want to have this city as a base. So while sitting at the café we could totally see and feel ourselves be working at different coffee places. We also had the vision to be one of those biking to the yoga practice with the mats on the back. It is with extreme excitement we are able to say that we are doing it now. We donnot know how many times we have pinched each other in the arms and keep repeating it. We are living our dreams. It was such a particular feeling when we passed the café the other day where we had that discussion one year earlier. We are amazed of how we have been guided by universe to be where we are today. No words can justify our excitment of our continuing journey and what´s next BUT one lesson is learned… always stay present and everything will unfold perfectly when you allow it. There is no turning back for us now.972386_10151624659731054_1641590419_nWith these words we also want to share a little love declaration we got from one of the fruit & vegetable vendors on our street yesterday. We were standing outside the store we usually go to with our bikes. While standing there one of the guys came out from the shop with a big box of medjool dates. He gives them to us and says these are for you. He continues with a big smile saying that we are always so nice when we come bringing happiness with our smiles and he really enjoys having us as his customers. He felt honored! Plus that he knows that we like dates 😉 (which is true since we go there several times a week to get new ones). This gesture and loving words really touched our hearts and can only be expressed as unconditional love for fellow human beings.

Today we are also featured at beautiful Veronica´s website. Check out the interview here. 🙂

Today´s powerful words by Albert Einstein:
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

With love,
Julie and Katrin

New week!

Happy Monday lovey,

We hope you had a good weekend and are ready for a brand new week to start! As we mentioned in our last post we had a pretty busy week but a very fun and exciting one. Days of intense up and running called for a resting Sunday. A good and long night´s sleep and we are now back on track! We started of this morning with a long and nice power walk here in Amsterdam. We were super lucky since it was pouring down when we woke up but as soon we stepped out of the door it stopped 😉 Could not be a better sign, right?

Today we have two recipes we would love to share with you. Our Sunday breakfast and dinner. Super easy and simply delicious!

This is our Purple Haze smoothie and it is a perfect smoothie! So delicious. It is specially a great green smoothie for beginners since you cannot taste the spinach or chlorella. We promise you could even trick a little kid who refuses to eat greens 😉 It is THAT good!

INGREDIENTS
974957_10151624659806054_2135195240_n– Spinach
– Bananas
– Dates
– Frozen blackberries
– Frozen raspberries
– Chlorella
– Maca
– Flaxseed (topping)

Mix all the ingredients and be ready to thrive!

In the evening we felt for something refreshing yet light since we were so tired and were about to hit the bed soon after. Eating light in the evening before bed helps your body to rest properly. The body does not need to spend the night digesting all food and can instead focus on resting.

So we came up with this super tasty and easy salad that only needs four ingredients.

975422_10151624659601054_1083541538_n

INGREDIENTS
– Cherry tomatoes
– Mushrooms
– Parsley
– Juice from 1 lemon

Chop your tomatoes and mushrooms and put them in a bowl. Squeeze the juice out of your lemon. Chop some parsley and add it to your juice. If you feel for garlic that would be delicious as well. Pour it over your veggies and let it sit for some minutes at least. The longer the better. Voilá!

Today´s powerful words by Eckhart Tolle:

“You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.” 

Much love,
Julie & Katrin

Have FUN!

11899_507879049276191_128391821_nHello sunshine,

What a week we have had! So much fun and a couple of late nights. Of course many productive working hours in between as well. It is so important to find that perfect balance between all areas in life. Never forget to have FUN! Enjoy yourself and go with this amazing flow. Enjoy the adventure universe can take you on if you allow it to come to you. It might be a bit ironic but we have found that when we for a moment simply let go of all our thoughts about our business and projects, and decide to go out for a night and just have an amazing time, unexpected positive things happen. In some magical way we have bumped in to the right people who have ended up being the perfect contact and given us information to be able to bring us one step further on our journey. Amazing ideas have also come to us when we at least expect it. The conclusion is to allow what we desire in life to come to us. Not “fight” for it. It is a fine line between working your butt off for what your heart desires and taking inspired actions. Donnot missunderstand us, it is essential to work for what you desire. But it is a huge difference of working and doing what you think you have to do for creating your dream and allowing the inspiration of taking action towards your dream to come true. We call it inspired actions and that is when nothing can hold you back from acting. The difference is the feeling. You can either feel “I have to do this” or “I want to do this”. It is all a state of mind. We try to never ever fight anything. Only allow it to come to us by rising our own vibrations. Then suddenly nothing really can stop us from doing whatever we have to do. Simply learn to play with the emotions and everything becomes so much more easy AND fun!

We cannot say it enough but how we feel today is beyond what we ever thought would be possible. Seriously. We are feeling so freakin´good! 😀 We have talked about our past lives a bit with each other these last days and compared it to how we live and feel today. Oh boy… what a difference! Before we ate badly and if we went out we would feel so tired the next morning. Wake up with a swollen face and just crave more bad food that in some way we thought would make us feel better. In our ears today it sounds sooooo out of this world. Now we wake up and crave a massive vibrant salad or something else that will make us feel amazing! Eating good has also definitely given us so much more energy to be able to work a lot and still have a big social life. We are simply so grateful for taking the decision to change our lives. It has been worth it all time to change and get rid of old habits. If we can do it- so can you!

Today´s powerful words by Christian D. Larson (Your Forces and How to Use Them):

“Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. 

To think well of yorself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
