Gluten and Nut free Seed Bread

You’ve probably already seen an endless amount of different variations of the Life-Changing Loaf of Bread. Still I couldn’t help but make my own version and after numerous tries I finally got it perfectly right.

Besides, seeds are super good for you and you should definitely include more of them in your daily diet.

I mean, seeds are naturally packed with real goodies and are one of the natural “superfoods” you want (and should) eat more, especially if you’re living an active lifestyle. They are also a great food supplement for those (us) living to a vegan and gluten free diet.

By including seeds in your weekly diet, the natural fibre, iron, protein, good fats, vitamins, and minerals they contain contribute to a wide range of potential health benefits. Seeds are a great source of energy, can help reduce fatigue and will contribute to healthy hair and skin, muscle and bone growth and maintaining a healthy heart. They also have immune system boosting qualities.

So without further ado, here we go

Oat and Seed Bread

(makes one loaf)

1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pepitas
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
2 cups rolled oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
3 tbsp psyllium seed husks
1 tsp himalayan salt
1 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cups water

In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the water and oil, stir well to combine. Scoop into a loaf pan and push down on the dough evenly. Leave aside for one or two hours for the psyllium, chia, flax seeds and oats do their magic.

Preheat the oven to 180 celsius. Pop the loaf into the oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove the bread from the loaf, flip upside down and bake on the rack for another 30-45 minutes, or until golden and crispy on the outside. Let cool completely before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

Thank you for reading, have a beautiful day!

Eating Rainbows at #OurMessyBrekku

A couple weeks back, on the Pride Week, we attended to a beautiful plant-based pop-up breakfast by the incredibly talented Ida Ginman, who I had the privilege to meet during my time in Australia, and her friend, the brekku-queen Tara Junker. The breakfast pop-up took place in a cute german cafe just few steps from our door step. Our Sunday morning couldn’t have had any better start.

Here are some photos of our rainbow breakfast spread. Obviously we had to try everything on the menu.

Rainbow Tapioca Pudding (coconut vanilla spiced tapioca pudding with

rhubarb and raspberry compote)

Unicorn Toast (pea mash, pickles and flowers / pink cauliflower spread, avo stars and peas)

Summer Feels Juice (watermelon, lime, strawberry and apple) and

Galaxy Raw Porridge (blueberry cacao buckwheat porridge with nordic berries)

Everything was so dreamy beautiful and delicious. You could tell these girls love what they do. To me, it’s so inspiring to see people bravely fulfilling their dreams and doing what they love. Always make sure you follow your heart and do what you want the most. Life is what we make of it.

Thank you again for having us girls. I’m already waiting for your next pop-up…
