Vegan cauliflower risotto with mushrooms and spinach

Lately I’ve been reading a bit about vegan, and I must say – I’m intrigued. Vegan dishes does not only look delicious, they taste it too. When I was googling around for some new blog alternatives, I found one I especially liked. I saw this vegan cauliflower risotto, and it looked amazing. I’m a sucker for a killer risotto, but since I’m trying to keep the sweets and fats on the down low, I guess this would be a great alternative, and it certainly was. I wouldn’t say that it tastes like the Italian risotto filled with butter (that I love), but it sure was good.

All I did was that I added some fresh spinach. You could also add butter, if you’re not into the vegan thing – I bet it would be even better!

Until next time, enjoy the summer – more posts will be up soon!

Rebooting or just enjoying the comfort of juicing

Lately I’ve been reading a lot about rebooting with a three to five day juice cleanse. As I’ve said before, I do not support diets for weight loss, but I’m definitely hooked on the idea of rebooting yourself – not just the body, but the mind as well. Up until 2 weeks ago, I had never actually used a juicer, so I did not know if I’d be able to live on vegetable juices – I mean a juiced carrot, celery or spinach seems horrible to me, but that was until I started juicing. Now I’m not yet on a juice cleanse, but I am drinking one juice per day, and it is magnificent. Knowing that what you’re drinking is a big glass with nothing but vitamins, that’s just awesome. Therefore I wanted to share some pictures and few recipes for some of the juices I’ve made until now. Of course you do need a juicer, so if you don’t have one, but you have the money for it – I recommend you go buy one. It’s not just a buy, you know – it’s an investment.

For the first one you juice two apples, two carrots, and 1 inch (2.5 cm) of ginger
(1 glass)

For the second (the green) you juice 1 cucumber, 2 lemons, 2 apples, 2 sticks of celery, 1 and a half handfuls of spinach, and 2 slices of melon.
(2 glasses)

For the third (orange/red seen from the top) you juice 2-3 carrots, 1 apple, 1 inch (2.5 cm) of ginger, and some watermelon – you decide how much.
(1 glass)

For the fourth and the last you juice 4-6 oranges depending on the amount of juice and about a quarter of a watermelon.

I hope y’all start juicing soon – it really is a pleasure.
