Aliciouslife: Book challenge

Not usually someone who’s ambitious (at. all.), I still haven’t been able to ignore the plethora of challenges  around. Lately, everything seems to have been turned into some sort of competition: taking photos, eating vegan and now – reading books. That was when I couldn’t resist the urge to jump on the band wagon anymore and here it is – my first ever challenge I’m participating in Continue reading Aliciouslife: Book challenge


Aliciouslyvegan: Freshii

One of many great things of not being at work all day was that I got to try out some of the lunch-places I had been meaning to visit for a while. Even though a few of them were closed (looking at you here, Home Made and Nat’naa), many were not.

On one of my numerous strolls around the city I found myself steering towards Freshii, a small restaurant in the first district. All I knew was that it served salads, soups and wraps, with a fair chance of vegan fare. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Freshii

Aliciouslife: Diets

After my recent rant regarding the current detox craze, there is more in the world of delusions, the mere mention of which gives me physical discomfort:

The word “diet“ – not as in nutrition in general but as in cutting certain things out of your actual diet to achieve certain results – is another things that makes me shake my head in disbelief at people I have otherwise known as smart and reflective. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Diets

Aliciouslyvegan: Green PS Café-Bar-Shop

Coming across a new venue that offers vegan brunch in a smoke free environment I will always be eager to give it a try. My latest find in this category is Green PS Cafe–Bar–Shop at Shinergy Zone in the 9th district and we went to their New Year’s brunch last Sunday. It was only the second time they actually offered brunch but the food had definitely been tried and tested before – because simply everything was delicious! Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Green PS Café-Bar-Shop

Aliciouslife: Detox

Some things really get me off the wrong foot when they appear in my morning Facebook/ Instagram/ email feed. The word “detox“, for instance, always seems to hit exactly that nerve.

Especially now, with all those (often questionable) New Year’s resolutions, People will spend hundreds of euros/ dollars/ pounds on a couple of days worth of juices which all have in common that they are of strange colour and often rather nauseating taste. Oh, and have I mentioned that they are useless too? Continue reading Aliciouslife: Detox

Aliciouslyvegan: Veganuary

In line with other month-long pledges such as Movember,
Ocsober/ Frocktober and the like, 2015 started out with
Veganuary, a pledge to live vegan for the first month of the year.

This wonderful challenge is currently in its 3rd year, with its aim to inform non-(or not yet-) vegans about how easy it is to cut meat, egg, dairy and honey from your diet and how much good it will do to you as well as the environment. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Veganuary

Aliciouslyvegan: Bliss balls

With the onset of veganism as a more common concept of life over the last couple of years, raw recipes have also made their way into the everyday kitchen. My everyday kitchen at least.

By today, I’m not at all convinced why I should forgo a hot cup of soup, tea or – heaven forbid – coffee, but a year ago I couldn’t imagine myself choosing not to consume anything derived from animals either.

Something I saw on a multitude of blogs were bliss balls Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Bliss balls
