Vegan Chocolate Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Oh. My. Goodness! This recipe is SUCH a game-changer! If you're like me and you like to enjoy a bit of the good ol' Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough ice cream from time to time, you'll understand I've been seriously lacking my fix since I've been cutting out dairy from my diet. As I was flicking through Niomi Smart's cookbook for some dinner inspiration, I came across this recipe for chocolate cookie dough ice cream. Totally home made & vegan. That sounded almost too good to be true, so I just had to try it out. And I've got to say, I've never tasted ANYTHING so good that's so healthy at the same time!

Starting My Journey: After Mindfulness

I've finished the mindfulness course I was telling you about more than two weeks ago now. It was such a great experience for multiple reasons and it has definitely opened my eyes to things I want to explore further. Like I said in that post, I'm in such a good headspace at the moment and I really feel like I've embarked on a journey of self-discovery lately ~ which I'm absolutely loving! In this post I talk you through a couple of things I've learned and been applying to my life lately. Things get a bit deep and spiritual but hopefully it will inspire you a little bit!

On My Bookshelf #1

Even though I'm currently writing my thesis and I have piles and piles of books next to me almost every single day, I've been really into reading novels and memoirs lately. Reading is SUCH a good way for me to unwind from a busy day and relax ~ I feel like it does more than watching an episode on Netflix or aimlessly scrolling through Facebook and asking myself HOW it got to 10PM without doing ANYTHING. It fills my brain with new thoughts, people, narratives... It just gets me so inspired! So I thought it would be fun to do a 'what's on my bookshelf'. I'll talk a little bit about books I've been reading lately and books I've recently bought. They won't be full book reviews (we can all go on Amazon for that) but just my experience with the book! Hopefully it will inspire some of you.

The Suede Jacket

I've been a busy bee in April and on May 1st I kinda decided enough was enough, and I cycled myself to the station, got on a train to the Hague and had some serious retail therapy. Does anyone else absolutely love shopping on their own, or is that just me? I honestly had the best time, haha.

Now a lot of the current trends are not really suiting me, which is a bit annoying (but also good for my bank account I guess). However, I did find some great spring pieces that will definitely help me get through this strange, ever-changing weather here. One of them is this GORGEOUS brown leather jacket which I fell in love with immediately. It's pretty much exactly what I've been looking for as an addition to my wardrobe.

Current Obsession: Sweet Potato Fries

Yay, another current obsession! This one has been in my life for a few months now and I don't see it going anywhere any time soon. It's bascially the yummiest, easiest recipe EVER for sweet potato fries.

You know healthy but delicious foods are my jam and it was about time I shared a recipe with you on my blog again. This is something I make weekly ~ I just find it's such a good way of getting some veggie in your meal and still satisfy an "unhealthy" craving. A bit of mayo and ketchup on the side do the trick for me, but they are great on their own as well.
