daedal_lives I'm safe and sound at my parents (Kenia is super happy now when she has gotten off the trains and has been treated to non-vegan stuff from the fridge) and I made some food for my mom and I - my dad refused and had pizza. Geez. Oumph soy meat with potatoes, corn, gravy (made with veggie stock, oat cream, soy sauce, salt, pepper, a pinch of coconut sugar and some starch to thicken it), lingonberries and some ajvar relish (store bought) 5h
  •   daedal_lives @plantbaseddad_ thank you! 5h
  •   fairytalesister Ser fantastiskt ut! Är Oumphbitarna bra till konsistensen? 5h
  •   amadeaslittlelife Oh Dads are always hard to convince... my mum often asks me to cook for us but my dad ...no. Last christmas I insisted of cooking a completely vegan christmas dinner for us three and in the end he was super full super satisfied (thanks to carbs *lol*) and had to admit that it was really yummy though. ;-) 4h
  •   daedal_lives @fairytalesister dessa är de som man köper i en låda som egentligen är tänkta att läggas på grillen. Jag gillade dem för att de inte var riktigt så 'köttliknande" som de andra sorterna, inte lika trådiga 4h
  •   daedal_lives @amadeaslittlelife yay! Glad he had a good experience of the vegan Christmas dinner! I wish I could at least get him to try eating vegan once or twice but he's just as stubborn as I am 4h
  •   chocolatea_me Lingon . Actually, your whole meal looks very delicious. I'm pretty sure my parents would approve of that, too. 4h
  •   tempurapriest Your Instagram account is a dangerous thing my friend! Never fails to make me hungry! 4h
  •   ell_lii Cute 3h

daedal_lives I'm making the time I spend on these trains enjoyable by munching on a Nakd bar (cocoa mint) and reading. This is a Swedish book called Glaskroppar (roughly translated - bodies of glass) written by two authors who call themselves Erik Axl Sund. I have read their three other books and loved them and so far this is living up to my expectations 8h

daedal_lives Yeah... There's oatmeal hiding beneath that white almond butter, I promise! I cooked my oatmeal with banana in oat milk and served with more sliced banana, dried mulberries and lemon balm I'm getting on a bus and three trains now to get to my parents - miss Kenia is not happy with me having been packing my bags this morning she's coming with me though, no worries! What are you up to this Thursday? 12h
  •   daedal_lives @amadeaslittlelife 2-3 weeks probably. I will move up there soon though, since I have so little left of my studies it's almost easier to just go down to the university and stay with a friend when it's needed. I'm looking forward to getting a new apartment up here though - it's always a bit stressful living with your parents when you're used to living alone Kenia is doing really well with it! She loves my parents - especially my dad who feeds her bacon 10h
  •   daedal_lives @mamayoc haha, sometimes I feel like that would be such a good idea it's not that bad though, though Kenia finds the waiting in between trains stressful, she would much rather stay on one and the same the whole time. 10h
  •   daedal_lives @vegan_brad thanks! It's been a while since I had oatmeal now 10h
  •   veganjourneytohbgm Alltså VAR köper du det där vita mandelsmöret och vilket märke är det? Ser så sjukt gott ut, men aldrig sett det i en affär 😐😟 9h
  •   daedal_lives @veganjourneytohbgm Det är sjukt gott!! märket heter Monki om det hjälper? Finns många olika sorters nötsmör och ibland om man har tur finns detta också - kostar över hundralappen men det är värt det! Kolla hälsoaffärer :) 8h
  •   angelasfitlife I'll have to look it up! Lemon oats sound really really good🏼 and that almond butter reminds me of coconut butter so liquid-y and delish 8h
  •   veganjourneytohbgm Tack 😙 Monki tror jag att jag har sett, men med tahini bara 8h
  •   chocolatea_me We must be white almond butter sisters because you're ratio is on point. I don't like playing favourites but this kind of almond butter is high on top of my list. .. 4h

daedal_lives Trying out these vegan chocolates tonight with some friends - peanut butter nono's, Milkless polar dream white and premium dark semisweet. I already stole a piece of the white chocolate - umm... it's... different quite waxy... but maybe the others are better? They are all nut free (also peanut free), gluten free and vegan! 1d
  •   daedal_lives @jendiggitydirt Me too, but I just didn't like it, no way I will finish it there are some good white chocolate bars out there though! I love this German brand called Vantastic foods, and Vivani has a white chocolate bar with hazelnut spread in - Mmm! 24h
  •   darrenvegan Mums️😛 23h
  •   daedal_lives @darrenvegan choklad!! 23h
  •   knittingopera Waxy chocolate is so disgusting... 22h
  •   summer.f.l.o.w.e.r Do you know any good milk chocolate flavor vegan chocolate? 22h
  •   brandyvegan Yeah these sound amazing!! Glad you loved them! Love dark chocolate!! 9h
  •   jendiggitydirt I wonder if you could salvage it by breaking into chunks for some cookies or shaving over some dessert? 8h
  •   chocolatea_me @summer.f.l.o.w.e.r If you don't mind me chiming in: the Vego bar is very similar to actual milk chocolate. It contains whole hazelnuts, though. 4h

daedal_lives I am leaving my apartment and going to my parents tomorrow (due to work - I have a job where they live and I will be moving up there later this year) so I used up all the leftovers for this meal to not have to throw anything away. I sautéed brown rice, potatoes, some soy "chunks" from the freezer, chickpeas and zucchini with a little garlic and added tomato paste, dijon mustard, yuzu juice, garlic powder, dried herbs, salt and pepper. Served with mixed greens dressed in apple cider vinegar. Kenia got some rice, potatoes and chickpeas 1d

daedal_lives Potatoes for dinner! Who's surprised? And a chickpea salad with what I had in the fridge - cucumber, onion and apple + apple cider vinegar, yuzu juice, maple syrup, dijon mustard, dried herbs, salt and pepper. And some mixed greens as well 2d

daedal_lives September first 2015 is here - a very special day! For me at least; because today I celebrate three years as a vegan!  In the end of August 2012 I watched a few documentaries including Earthlings and I instantly knew I would never consume dairy and eggs again, or think about it in the same way (I had been a vegetarian for six years or so). I expected that it was going to be a big change, and it was but not in the way I thought. In my mind I figured that it would be difficult to know what to eat and how to get everything I need. Turns out that it has been not just easy but it has made food more enjoyable as well, knowing I hurt as few living beings as I can in my daily life.
What has changed the most is my outlook on the world and my priorities in life.  My compassion and passion for animals has just kept growing; I no longer find some animals "unnecessary" (such as insects) and enjoy nature much more. To wake up in the morning, hear happy birds sing, see the trees go through the changes for every season, knowing how much life is hidden from my eye but is going on everywhere around me - it's beautiful (and I feel like a hippie saying it but I guess I am then). The small things in life make me happy in a completely different way. But on the other hand it has also made me much more cynical about the human race. About wealth and power. About how people feel entiteled to everything on Earth and how the rich want to be richer even though so many others have nothing. To know how we treat others, both other people and other living beings and to feel like most of us just don't give a shit... it's infuriating and makes my heart heavy. Still, I am happier today than I have ever been, I have found peace in mind and a goal with my life - to love, be kind and spread compassion where I can. We need more of all three in this world

daedal_lives Good morning guys and welcome September! My last semester has now officially started and I'm nervous for what it will have in store for me but glad that I might be seeing my bachelor's degree around the corner (finally!). For breakfast today I had overnight oats in an almost empty almond butter jar that I prepared last night by combining oats, chia seeds, flaxseeds, oat milk, mulberries, pear purée, cardamom and salt. This morning I topped it with a sliced banana and more mulberries and had it with some tea on the side Hope you have a great first day of this month! 2d

daedal_lives Waah! Now I remembered a negative thing about fall - it gets darker earlier and I suck at taking pictures without natural light! . And one of my lamp bulbs broke yesterday so I need to get a new one sorry for the not so great picture! But I used up the sprouted tofu tonight in a curry served with turmeric seasoned brown rice and mixed greens. I made the curry by sautéing a chopped onion and two cloves of garlic, adding broccoli, carrot slices, zucchini and vegan oat cream (from @oatlyab - 13%). I seasoned with turmeric, curry powder, cardamom, cinnamon, garam masala, chili pepper and some veggie stock. After bringing it to a boil and letting it simmer for a while I added the tofu and five minutes later I added a little salt and pepper before serving 3d

daedal_lives Yeah. I bought another mug. Again. It was so kitchy and I don't give a fuck-y (I mean that dog is wearing a crown!!) I couldn't resist. Hi #mugloversanonymous - I don't need help, I need mugs! 3d

daedal_lives Whoa! It's Monday again and the last day of August! Fall is here tomorrow! Which is weird (summer is over already!) But I'm okay with that cause I love fall so much Today I made my breakfast a little autumnal with nectarine and cinnamon nice cream - I just mixed two frozen and one fresh banana with vanilla powder and cinnamon and folded in chopped nectarine when ready to serve. Topped with more nectarine pieces and cinnamon are you guys excited for fall too? Not asking you weird Australians who are waiting for spring 3d

daedal_lives Apparently yesterday was vegan junk food day. I didn't get to know that until I was all done with my meals but better late than never, right? So tonight I made a pizza out of a gluten free wrap (from #schär), tomato paste mixed with dried herbs, a little vinegar, salt and pepper, #violife pizza cheese, #vegusto cheese, canned artichoke, onion, tomatoes and sprouted tofu + extra dried herbs on top and fresh basil after baking Now I'm watching movies all night long 4d
  •   daedal_lives @jasminenell jag tycker den funkar helt okej, speciellt ihop med en annan ost, typ Vegusto, för det hjälper den bli mindre klistrig 3d
  •   daedal_lives @flickanokakorna alldeles för ofta jag har handlat mycket från Tyskland - alles vegetarisch - som har massor mat och godis och skickar till Sverige, även kylvaror Annars är Veganlife.se bra för godis men de har inte så stort urval, bodystore har lite livsmedel, renee voltaire har en egen webshop och iherb såklart! 3d
  •   qrstabby Oommg 😛😛😛!!! 3d
  •   flickanokakorna Åh vad spännande! Flera som jag inte testat. Vad kul, tänkte att det kunde vara en bra muta till mig själv i höstmörkret. :) Tack för att du delar med dig! 3d
  •   livingleanwitherin Delish! 3d
  •   iuriart Looks amazing! !! 3d
  •   tangledlala Goodstore.se finns också! Och så Vitaminvaruhuset.se som har en del choklad o annat @flickanokakorna 3d

daedal_lives Waah, that empty space between my sweet potato and my tomatoes is annoying! But this was my lunch! I topped my sweet potato with vegan sour cream from @oatlyab and herb salt. Mixed greens, tomatoes, pickles and balsamic cream on the side 4d

daedal_lives Sunday morning is here guys! I welcomed it with baked maca mulberry oatmeal topped with banana before baking it and passionfruit afterwards Orange juice and tea on the side as well!
Rant ahead!

I'm a documentary junkie (well, I like movies and TV-series in general) and I am currently watching Louis Theroux on Netflix. In one episode he is in Africa looking into throphy hunting. As in people who breed 'wild' animals and let other people hunt and kill them for money. Of course I am apalled by this behavior. Why do we feel that just cause an animal is beautiful or exotic we need to kill it? Take pictures of ourselves with a dead corpse? Hang the head on a wall? Why couldn't just knowing they exist be enough? I am not just talking about Cecil the lion that stirred up such a conflict (besides; this documentary was made before that happened), but breeding animals just to kill them - saying that the only reason animals exist is to earn money on them, exploit them and/or eat them - it makes me wonder when the human race become so damn selfish?
Furthermore, as some of these people rightly say , it's not different to what we do here with cows and pigs; in much larger numbers too. A lot of people are angered by people shooting a zebra in Africa while cows get slaughtered in much bigger numbers here. We only see the value in animals if they exist and die for our purposes. How sad is that?

daedal_lives Leftovers for lunch today! Remember that 'cheese sauce' I made the other day out of potatoes and carrots? This is what it looks like mixed with the pasta Now, the only leftovers I have is some more of that sweet and sour sauce I made yesterday and I will make something with it tomorrow I love not having to throw anything away, leftovers are awesome! 5d

daedal_lives You guys, I am so happy and flattered by all your amazingly sweet and considerate comments these last couple of days - I want to answer them personally but if I don't get the chance to, know that I have read and loved every single one! I feel so lucky to have followers like you!
My Saturday started with a walk as always (miss Kenia needs to pee really badly in the morning ) and then I made my breakfast - cherry nice cream with passionfruit on top. I think this combination is one of my absolute favorites! Passionfruit tea on the side as well! Have an amazing, fun, happy Saturday guys, you deserve it 😙

daedal_lives I made rice paper rolls to enjoy tonight filled with lettuce, carrot, onion, sprouted tofu and cucumber - I was gonna add avocado but it wasn't ripe enough Still have to practise on getting them rolled tightly and I would like to try brown rice paper but they turned out much better than last time I made them!
The dipping sauce is a recipe from @chefchloe - her sweet and sour sauce from Chloe's kitchen this is like the fourth time I make it and it's good with EVERYTHING - I promise! Though I used tomato paste instead of ketchup since I don't have any (and it's sweet enough as it is) and I used half maple syrup half coconut sugar instead of all brown sugar.
The ingredients are 3/4 cup water (I used 1 cup to be able to use it as a dip, it's quite a thick sauce), 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari), 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 3 tbsp ketchup and 2 tbsp corn starch. Just whisk it all together in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil. Let simmer while whisking and it's done when you like the thickness (it doesn't take long). I topped mine with furikake (a Japanese seasoning blend) Enjoy!

daedal_lives Since I ran out of fresh fruit yesterday I took a little stroll to my closest grocery store for some more. And a few other things might have ended up in my cart as well I haven't tried this flavor of Karma kombucha before - it's pomegranate! Had to try And I got coconut milk and some dark chocolate, otherwise I kept to fruit and veggies! Organic: Bananas, grapes, mixed greens, tomatoes and frozen raspberries. Not organic: passionfruit, nectarines, sweet potatoes and the green stuff up left - what's the name of that kind of lettuce in English? Just lettuce? 6d

daedal_lives Good morning guys I had a slight scare today when miss Kenia disappeared into the woods after she was surprised by a group of people in our way. She was off the leash as she always is when we walk in the woods but she has never completely disappeared before. It took me half an hour to find her; she walked towards me on the path and when she saw me she started running towards me whining out of joy I'm so relieved nothing happened to her! Now she's even more of a shadow than usual, keeping me in sight at all times - I think she got a little scare too, poor thing! Anyway, here's my breakfast! I had plain oatgurt from @oatlyab with warm raspberries, gluten free muesli, mulberries and white almond butter +orange juice and tea on the side have an amazing Friday! 6d

  •   body_restore_replenish Thank you! 5d
  •   jsu1988 Sweety! Try making her improve her smelling skills so that she could find you easily. I guess there some videos of Cesar Millan on youtube teaching how to do so. I think the video is about raising a puppy. 5d
