Cold, rainy, windy …Yuck! It is simply nasty at the moment. But good food always can improve my mood, so instead of going out for a run and work on my fitness I go to the kitchen and work on my waistline:)
Chickpeas provide protein, spinach contains iron and potatoes make you feel full – a perfect dish for a rainy day indoor athlete.

Green Smoothies do not always have to be green. Depending on what you throw into your mixer you can end up with some interesting colours. Blueberries and Beetroots will make this smoothie turn out a very bright bloody red. Yes, vegans are mean hunters – poor little beetroots and blueberries better hide from us:)

I have to admit I have been in kind of a hibernation, just hanging in there, waiting for nicer, warmer days to come. You have to keep in mind, sleeping is a real energy guzzler. During your night’s sleep you spend nearly 50% of your base metabolic calories!
But now spring is in the air, my spirits are up again and I am back to fill up those empty batteries with healthy delicious food. It is time to switch from warm comfort food to healthy green vitamin bombs for a perfect start into the day and as a prep for summer and bikini time (you never can start too early). It is Green Smoothie Time!

They come in all sizes and shapes, with a huge variety of fillings: böreks are one of the most ancient elements of Turkish cuisine. If aliens would land in Turkey and have to bring back “the one dish”, it would be börek they choose.
Böreks mostly have a filling of cheese or meat. So if you are visiting Turkey as a vegan you may miss out on one of the most quintessential food Turkey prides itself. That would a pity! The solution: Do-it-yourself!
