For the better part of 2014 I have strictly followed a plant-based diet. Only recently did I come across an article of someone claiming that for whatever reason you became vegan in the first place, those who stick to it will increasingly see the political dimension. At first I thought “not me”, but when thinking about it I realized how spot-on he was. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Continuing my journey
Mr A is slowly getting to the point where he’s had his fill of pumpkins for the seasons. I on the other hand am only getting started. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Stuffed pumpkin
Every minute somewhere in Austria blood a (450ml) unit of stored blood is needed, however, hospitals are usually critically short on blood. Only 3.5% of the Austrian population regularly donate blood (source: Rotes Kreuz) which I think is frankly embarrassing as well as highly egotistic. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Give blood, save lives
“Viel zu spät begreifen viele
Die versäumten Lebensziele:
Freude, Schönheit der Natur,
Gesundheit, Reisen und Kultur.
Darum, Mensch, sei zeitig weise!
Höchste Zeit ist’s! Reise, reise!”
The other day, mum surprised me with an awfully delicious apple cake (“I made one you can eat as well” – that’s maternal love right there). Based on a recipe she found on Chefkoch.de, she modelled around a bit, then she forwarded me the original recipe including her comments and I “improved” it a little more. Not that it actually needed improving but I will rarely ever use a recipe 1:1. This is what I ended up with Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Apple cake
As with having my go at vegan, I was also rather very late to discover Blogilates but since mens sana in corpore sano, I figured only cutting out food I thought wasn’t good for me was only half the deal and started the Beginner’s Calendar last February, which Blogilates inventor/ brainiac/ wonderwoman Cassey Ho provides for free on her website. Continue reading Aliciouslife: Blogilates
When dressing for work, I tend to err on the conservative side. When I feel crazy, I will omit a blazer/ full suit for nice pants/ a pencil skirt and a – sometimes even colourful – cardigan every now and then (especially in summer when my chance of client contact is zero).
However, I’m not one of those fashionable women that are able to create stylish outfits from a minimal wardrobe without any (visible) effort. I also haven’t been brave enough to own the bright lippie (mind you, I do own several, but don’t actually wear them that often and definitely not to work).
That’s not to say that I don’t do colours though. I do. On my nails. There, I will wear any shade that strikes my current fancy. Continue reading Aliciousstyle: Addicted to nail polish
Usually, my sweet cravings behave indirectly proportionally to the temperature – as it gets colder, my sweet tooth demands more attention.
The other weekend I really felt like bullar – Swedish buns – but couldn’t find the one recipe that had it all. Therefore, I worked with those that came closest Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Cardamom-cinnamon delights
The first time I went, I was more than pleasantly surprised. The second time, I still couldn’t believe it was true. Now that I’ve been numerous times – for both breakfast and dinner – since Ströck Feierabend opened in February, I still find it perplexing how smooth and friendly the service presents itself. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Feierabend!
I love getting mail and especially love getting parcels. It’s the Christmas-feeling I get every time I get to unwrap something, whereas it’s completely irrelevant whether I know what’s inside or don’t.
For a while I’d been meaning to try Kochabo, where you’re supplied with a box containing food & recipies for the number of persons and amount of meals you chose in your online order. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Kochabo
