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.

Vegan Spelt Waffles

 

I decided to make vegan waffles!. At first, I thought I will fail in making them, but surprisingly, not only that did not happen, but they came out better than non-vegan waffles! I swear they are super crispy and really tasty!

If you feel like making some,  I present you a recipe that I came up with. I found many vegan waffles recipes but I wasn’t entirely sure about them. You can experiment with it as much as you want. That’s what I did. I was just following my intuition. 🙂

The recipe:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour. I used white spelt.
  • 4 tbsp of oil. I used rapeseed.
  • 3 tbsp of vegan cream. I used Oatly and I recommend it!
  • 1 tsp soda or baking powder. I used gluten free corn baking powder.
  • Vanilla
  • Sweet stuff (mix and match): Xylitol, Stevia, Agave Syrup, Maple Syrup or Dates, it is entirely up to you. I used Stevia and Agave Syrup.
  • Water. You need to be careful with it. Add as much water as you need, the dough should be thicker than a pancake dough, but not too thick.
  • Add some seeds, if you want. I added chia.

Tip. You can also add a mashed banana. If I had one, I would do that 🙂

Mix it all together. As I mentioned earlier, the dough should be thicker than a pancake one but not too much.

Fry this in a waffle maker for about 5 minutes. Take a peek now and then to make them just the way you like them.

And you’re done!

They are extremely easy and tasty. We had them with sugar-free apricot jam and Choc-Shot by Sweet Freedom.

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.
