Coconut Bowls & 100% rye pastries. 

When I first saw coconut bowls I absolutely loved them, love at the first sight for sure. I was also hyped by all those smoothie bowls everywhere!

Of course is nothing wrong with a smoothie bowl but I think I started following a Social Media trend completely forgetting what I really like and what my true style is. Don’t get me wrong, smoothie bowls are brilliant and I do enjoy a lot of them, especially the green one with spinach! It’s just, they’re everywhere!

I live vegan lifestyle 80% of the day I think. Sometimes I enjoy pastries (wheat free of course) or cheese and eggs. So why not to share with you my non-vegan recipes! All my ingredients are organic, eggs from farms I know chickens have a normal life, same with cheese, only from locals!

Coconut bowls are not for a sole use for smoothie bowls in my opinion. They’re amazing for everything you want. Sustainable tableware which looks great, and is out of ordinary.

I decided to take some pictures featuring coconut bowl in a bit different way, in a style which I love the most. Majority call it a mystery light food photography. Call it any way you want, I call it rustic  😊

People may wonder why everyone is so hyped about coconut bowls? Some are hyped because these bowls are just adorable, aren’t they? But behind the cute coconut shell bowl is a bigger mission, sustainability. Every year millions of coconut shells are burned as waste, Coconut Bowls reclaim them and turn them into the food safe environmentally friendly products you can eat from!

I used my coconut bowl to put the cherries which I later used for my pastries. I think it looks as cool as a smoothie bowl ☺️

Recipe for pastries:

– 3,5 glasses of white rye flour

-200ml milk (I used almond milk)

-14g instant yeast

-2 eggs

-120g melted butter

-vanilla extract

-2/3 glass of sugar. I normally don’t use sugar but xylitol kills yeast so is not appropriate. Here I used Demerara and 65g of vanilla white sugar.

– cherries. I used preserved cherries, you can use fresh or frozen. Remember to unfreeze first, and get rid of the excess of water.


 

 

Back To School or Work. Productive Home Office

September! The month when summer holidays are over. Maybe excluding higher education – these lucky people usually still have some time off!. But most of us are ready to go back to work after our school or work holiday.

In my personal opinion, September is an amazing month to be as productive as possible and I feel I can be super focused. Mostly cause I love Autumn and cozy evenings with ginger tea when it’s a bit chilly and rainy outside the window. My brain doesn’t work properly in a heatwave, and this slight drizzle and a bit of wind is something that calms me down.

Speaking of being focused, we need that amazing workspace!

For me, simplicity is key. I need to have almost nothing around. Just my laptop, notebook(s), black pen and the tea. I want to show you some workspace inspirations as well as my own home office space.

Simple things you need to know before going to Crete.

Hello!

 

If you have been following my Instagram, it might have told you a little bit about my trip to Crete. Of course, nothing of it wouldn’t be complete without a whole post and me sharing, even more, photos! I must admit, the trip was absolutely amazing. We spent six days there and certainly that was not static. Drove about 350 miles and walked around 50 miles. Car rentals are extremely cheap, we got a deal for four days and paid only 120 euros! Dealing with locals was also very easy and pleasant – Crete seems to be a place without any red tape, so paperwork was cut down to the minimum. Loved it.

If you want to book it I can recommend OnTheBeach . Everything went smooth and without hidden costs or other surprises.
Oh, and one more thing. Be prepared for Cicadas! Lots of them. Everywhere.

 

I found some time to read and I really recommend this book! -> A Little History of the World.

Hello!

 

I know, I changed the name again. It’s a bit silly but I think I finally found the best one! The previous one – gone and forgotten.

But this post isn’t about my thoughts regarding blog names. I want to share my Farmdrop experience.

What’s Farmdrop? It’s an online organic food shop. I decided to try them because I am really unsatisfied with the food quality in all the big markets like Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, etc. If I buy tomatoes, they can stay two weeks in the fridge and even mould is not interested in eating them… Not even to mention me. Don’t count my boyfriend in, he eats everything. Friday morning, a lovely van arrived. Perfect time (I was texted the day before what time the driver may arrive, look at the screenshot below), an absolutely lovely deliverer unpacked my shopping, and the van… it was gorgeous! So, first impression? Great. Christmas came early this year, in August, so to speak.

What is more, everything smells extremely fantastic, like from my mum’s garden.  And if it says a bunch of beetroots, it means it’s a very big one. Artichoke? Massive, my friend. The quality is brilliant, I couldn’t ask for more. Will order every week.

Have a look:

I just want you to know, this post isn’t sponsored. I chose to do it because I think healthy habits are extremely important and I am really disappointed with food quality in supermarkets.
