🌺Add coconut or olive oil (optional) and mix well. Let the dough sit for 15 minutes.

🌺Spread the dough on a dehydrator sheet making sure not to spread it too thinly.

🌺Top the naan with herbs and spices of your choice or keep it plain.

🌺For garlic naan, add fresh parsley, black pepper, salt (optional), and chopped garlic and onion on top of the naan. Drizzle olive oil on top (optional).

Kelp Powder As a Salt Substitute

IMG_20180309_124726

Have you ever tried kelp powder as a substitute for salt in your diet? Kelp is a nutritious seaweed containing many minerals including sodium, potassium, calcium, and iodine in a form that our body can process and utilize. That means it is easy on our kidneys and good for our endocrine glands too! You can also use dulse or other powdered seaweeds. Little bit of powder goes a long way! πŸ˜˜πŸ’“πŸ’šπŸ’“πŸ’¦πŸ’«

When in Berlin: Raw Vegan Eats and Treats

For the last two summers, I was so happy to get the opportunity to spend some time in the beautiful and green city of Berlin. With the glorious architecture and many gorgeous parks full of awe-inspiring trees, herbs, berries, calming bodies of water (yes, there is even a park with a magnificent waterfall running through it) and organic grocery stores at every corner, it’s hard to surpass Berlin in its environmentally conscious, animal-friendly, vegan mentality. I would like to share with you three of my favorite places to eat, have coffee or tea, or enjoy a delicious dessert. You won’t be disappointed!

 

Rawtastic

Danziger Str. 16, 10435 Berlin

This is a raw vegan’s dream come true! All of your favorite dishes, including raw pizza, yummy soups, sarma, kelp noodles, rolls and wraps, cheese platters, crapes, and incredibly delicious desserts – a must visit for any raw vegan and impossible to disappoint.

My pick: any of their delicious raw pizzas and desserts

Hope Superfood Deli

Akazienstraße 28, 10823 Berlin

I was so lucky to have this gem right in my neighborhood during my stay in Berlin. This delightful deli offers some raw vegan eats such as smoothies, juices, and a yummy zucchini noodle bowl, but what tops my list are the unbeatable raw desserts. If you are in Schoneberg and are in the mood for dessert and coffee or tea, this cozy and friendly spot on one my favorite streets in Berlin is for you!

Frida Cafe

Graefestrasse 75,Β 10967 Berlin

If you are in Kreuzberg, don’t miss this beautiful charming oasis of a cafe on another one of my favorite streets in Berlin. Frida Cafe is a sanctuary, where you can read, write your next book, chat with friends, or just daydream. It’s a poet’s dream! Although there are many vegan options, there is one raw vegan dish (or you can ask for them to make it raw) called the Superfood bowl which is a half of a cantaloupe filled with berries, chia seeds, granola, and vegan yogurt. They have incredible coffee and tea too!

My pick: Superfood bowl
