“With all the heavy foods on Christmas is nice to have an easy dessert. When I make my Raw vegan chocolate I always end up with chocolate left in the bowl. Instead of eating it from the bowl, this time I decide it to put it on some mandarins. I like this fruit – chocolate combination and is also very healthy.
You can use mandarin, clementine or orange for this recipe. If you want to be bold try it with lemon or lime. A banana is a must especially if you use peanut butter and chocolate. This is also an excellent snack and very healthy to eat between meals or after effort.”
I was scrolling through my Instagram and saw this image!
I have been storing black been pasta in my kitchen for a while now but it never got me thinking of endless possibilities out there. Personally, all black food sounds delicious to me… and looks even better!
Ps. I won’t focus on vegan only foods here because everything can be prepared with vegan ingredients.
Now, feast your eyes…
Could we have a recipe for black ice cream, you say?
Well, here you go!
I will be reinventing this recipe in a very near future! #charcoalordered
As long as I remember, I wanted to be a photographer. I started when I was around 15 years old but was never encouraged to pursue it so, after finishing high school, I left to Denmark to study international business. I believe it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
After two years of being miserable, I decided to quit and try multimedia design – multichannel studies varying from photography and programming to innovation design and entrepreneurship. During the time of the program, I focused on preparing myself to start my own photography and design business but I slowly fall in love with all things digital, chose it as my career path and started to see photography as two things: art and a tool. I love it just as much as before, but it’s not a full-time job for me.
While at the beginning I did mostly portraits and artsy projects, I now mostly do food and product photography. However, you never know where life takes you so once in a while I will share with you different projects I might take up.
I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting projects so go check my photography page or send me an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org! Have an inspirational page to share with me? Leave a comment bellow!
