Its a rainy Thursday in supposedly sunny Bavaria..Oh well

Its a rainy Thursday. And its the end of May. And i'm in Bavaria. And isn't it suppose to be sunny or did summer forget to show up? But it still works for me :D

Reminds me of how much I love rain. Its really calming, peaceful, cold and makes me wanna retire to my bed with a nice hot chocolate(which im craving right now).

That's the vegan hot chocolate taken from Choosing Raw

I love the cold crisp air, makes me appreciate things more - I have no clue why. So i'm sitting here listening to Dreamer by Isbells hoping for a vegan hot chocolate to land infront of me and... I LOVE chia seeds :D 
Taken from

Blogs I follow

My journey to becoming vegan was especially driven by the many interesting and helpful blogs out there. I used to spend hours looking at recipes and this alone, strangely, made me very happy. I still spend a large amount of time reading and following some blogs.

Oh She Glows:

This is where I got my Chocolate chia pudding idea from and till today its may favourite breakfast recipe :)

This Rawsome Vegan Life :

I really like this this blog particularly since the writer, Emily is a uni student and I feel like I could relate to her better . Shes got amazing dessert recipes and although they all look really good, they are surpsingly easy to make. Heres where I got my Raw hot chocolate idea from and yes, I have it every night and sometimes in the day

Queen of Quinoa:

I began following this blog recently since I incorporated Quinoa into my diet. I srated training at the gym in March since I finally found some time and relised I was probably not getting enough protein into my diet. Since Quinoa is really high in protein and is also gluten free, its perfect for me ... and you ;) I eat 1 or 2 servings of Quinoa each day and I feel like im actually getting enough nutrients ( since i felt kinda hungry all the time in the past).

My everyday to-go breakfast

Breakfast is usually one of the most challenging meals for me to have or to prepare for since im not very good at coordinating myself in the morning, every morning. So i figured I have to have something healthy, vegan and filling ready for me every morning. So it's non other that a Chocolate Chia Pudding.

I look forward to this every morning ( who wouldnt want to be abe to eat something so chocolate-y, delicious & absolutely healthy ).

I cannot emphasise enough the benefits of chia seeds and when coupled with Raw Cacao( the superfood chocolate), it makes an amazingly quick,healthy & filling breakfast which gives me all the energy I need to go on through the day.

I started eating this chia seed pudding everyday in Singapore, before I moved to Germany and within a month or so I noticeed that I could do way more at the gym when I ate this. (so its energy giving poperties are true ;) ) Also, cacao, raw cocoa, is known to contain alot of antioxidants and make us happy :)

Cacao Chia Pudding

4 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 tablespoon of cacao (raw)
1.5 mugs of dairy free milk- I use organic oat milk but you can use nut milk

Here's a little intro about them :

Chia seeds are gluten free and contain no cholesterol. Also , they are content a high amount of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants and minerals, making in really nutritios :D Aztec warriors believed that a tablespoon of chia seeds are able to sustain a person for 24 hours ! Isn't that amazing? Plus 4 tablespoons a day is the optimum amount :)

It's like happiness in a cup. Can't be any easier ;)
