Vegan Wednesday #10

Standard

vegan wednesday

Yaaay, exam done and semester done! Now I can focus fully on Christmas – my first vegan Christmas 🙂 Today we went to the Christmas Market in Mannheim and picked up some last Christmas presents. Tomorrow I’ll go to my parents’ house and it’ll be vegan-Christmas-cookie baking time 🙂 There I’ll find all the kitchen utensils one could hope for and lots of space for baking! I will let you know what I baked and how it worked out.

Due to my exams I didn’t manage to write you a Saint Nicholas post 😦 I hope you had a great day, though! Apparently we have been good, because the generous St. Nicholas (alias Mum 😉 ) left a few things for us: Read the rest of this entry

A highlight of the week was on Monday and Tuesday night – Chili sin Carne:

(it’s great for leftovers, because it tastes even better the next day!)

At the end of last week we had zucchini rolls with a pumpkin filling, Read the rest of this entry

Advent, Advent…

Standard

Hey you guys!

Unfortunately, I can only write a short blog post today for the first advent, and can’t present awesome Christmassy advent recipes like many of the other wonderful (vegan) bloggers. I’m now approaching the final stage of my exam preparation, only one week to go till my exam!

Nevertheless, I want to wish you all a beautiful first advent and a wonderful advent time!

I received no less than two incredibly awesome advent calendars this year that are going to sweeten up my advent time! 🙂 Since last year was Read the rest of this entry

VEGAN BOX November

Vegan Box

The new Vegan Box just arrived!!! What a pleasant surprise! I thought it would get here around the end of the week and I was so excited when our friendly neighbor brought it over just then 🙂

If you’re still expecting the Vegan Box, then don’t keep reading now 🙂 I don’t want to spoil the surprise! Read the rest of this entry

Travel Tip: Veggie-Hotels.com

VeggieHotels Logo

Another website that simply must be in your vegan/vegetarian link collection is: veggie-hotels.com.

It lists purely vegetarian accommodations worldwide. Not only hotels, but also small guesthouses, health & seminar centers, retreats and backpacker’s. VeggieHotels lists these places with the requirement that they serve neither meat nor fish.

Naturally, the majority of the listed VeggieHotels offer vegan options. Additionally, amongst the over 450 VeggieHotels there are now even more than 50 purely vegan accommodations!

I was lucky to gain small insight into the work of the start-up company during an internship. I really think it’s worth it to support them.

But just have a look for yourself! I find it quite exciting and often surf on their website, even when I’m currently not looking for an accommodation. It is really fun to have a quick view into several countries and to see how the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle is represented there. And of course one can always dream of their ideal vegan holiday 😉

VEGAN BOX October

Standard

Vegan Box October

My awesome and super nice brother got me the August Vegan Box for my birthday (thanks!) and I liked it so much that I decided to order it myself.

The Vegan Box works like every other order-box format: every month receive get a small selection of things to try (e.g. tea, whiskey or in this case vegan products) that are sent to your house.

I decided to do a monthly post of what’s inside the box, so that you can get some insight into new products without having to order them. But if you’re interested in buying ones for yourself, you can do so here if you live inside of Germany. If not, have a look for a vegan box in your country (for example Here is a vegan box if you reside in the US).

This is what was in the Vegan Box October (big one): Read the rest of this entry

(Cook-) Book Tip: Vegan for Fun – Attila Hildmann

Standard

Avilia's book tip

Vegan for Fun, Attila Hildmann, vegan, cook book, recipes

Today I would like to introduce to you the cook book „Vegan for Fun“ by Attila Hildmann, a successful German author of vegan cook books. This book was the first vegan cook book I owned and I loved it from the beginning. The recipes are delicious, easy to prepare and great for beginners. Attila describes himself as someone that has a “mainstream” taste, which is clearly shown in his cookbook “Vegan for Fun”. The recipes aren’t that special, but they are really tasty and to be honest I prefer tasty simplicity to complex extravagance. I think I might have a “mainstream” taste as well 😉

Here there are some of the recipes that I have tried so far Read the rest of this entry
