“Let me guess #recipeontheblog ?!” was a friend’s reaction when I first shared a photo on this granola on Instagram.
I laughed it off claiming that, as with most of my cooking, there wasn’t exactly a recipe. In fact, there was no recipe at all. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Nutty granola
What if I told you that you could have ice cream for breakfast? And what if I also told you it could actually be good for you? Without any unnecessary fats or added sugars? Wouldn’t that be great?
Let me show you how to make it happen. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Banana peanut butter ice cream smoothie
Green smoothies have been around on blogs, facebook, Instagram and magazines for a couple of months. However, I was of the opinion that one shouldn’t mix fruit and vegetables and therefore had only been making all different kinds of fruit smoothies.

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!

The other Sunday, which was a SUNday indeed, Mr A and I revisited one of our favourite breakfast haunts in Vienna: Augustin.
From outside, it looks dark and unwelcoming and certainly not like a place I would voluntarily visit, even though they recently painted the door what I can only describe as “Augustin-mint”.
From the inside, however, it is absolutely lovely: upholstered chairs, an antique-y bar setting, dark wooden panelling, chandeliers and – for summer – a perfectly gorgeous courtyard. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Breakfast at Augustin
I had insisted on spending a whole day in Auckland rather than arriving there the day before our departure to give us some rest. We stayed at Verandah, the hostel where I spent my first Christmas away from home in 2006, and I still cannot recommend this place enough. Campbell, the owner, had his place extended but it’s still a lovely place to hang out in one of the coolest areas of Auckland, Ponsonby. Continue reading Alicioustravels: Auckland
