A very Merry Loving Vegan Christmas ♥♥♥

We love it here when fellow vegans meet, eat together and become friends. Christmas is a time to be with like minded people. To feel the energy of love and companionship. At Vegan Life Energy we love bringing people together. We love to prepare delicious meals for all to enjoy. For us Christmas is celebrated a little differently we do not have a Christmas tree or the usual commercial trimmings. We prefer to celebrate with good company and great food, to relax, discharge knowing that all food is lovingly prepared without harm to others. To enjoy the peaceful nature that surrounds us and the soft melodic sounds of the waves from the Mediterranean sea.

This year we have reduced our prices for December so that hopefully enjoying a vegan Christmas with us will be affordable for everyone.

A Vegan Therapist´s Viewpoint

We could all benefit from seeing a Therapist ♥

The world we live in is made up of experiences.

Sometimes these experiences can lift us and some can bring us down.

We were designed as human beings to have a full range of emotions and feelings. We are a beautiful and complex mix of energy signals constantly transmitting outwards and also receiving signals inwardly-

Our light can easily be dimmed and when that happens our energy levels are zapped. If this is left unchecked we start to doubt ourselves, we see our achievements as small. We loose interest in the things that gave us pleasure.

Seeing a therapist is liking turning your light back on.

Light & Fluffy Sponge Cake Recipe Vegan & GF

Super moist, light and fluffy sponge cake recipe from our Vegan Life kitchen. Easy to make, no refined sugars plus GF. Will keep for 3 days in the fridge, its a good idea to wrap the cake with foil if you are not eating the same day as this stops the cake from drying out in the fridge.

Ingredients:

  • 2 and 3/4 cups of buckwheat flour
  • 1 large tbsp of baking powder and 1 large tbsp of bicarb of soda
  • 1/2 Cup of Vegan Milk mixed with 1/2 cup fizzy water to make up to 1 cup (I used Soya Vanilla milk)
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil (I used cold pressed)
  • 1/2 cup of blended date paste or maple syrup
  • 1 Cup of fruit juice (any juice works well, I used orange juice)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Add the flour to one large bowl. In a second bowl add the oil, syrup and juice.

Slowly alternate by adding a little of the flour, then a little of the milk to the oil and syrup. Whisk to blend the ingredients together. When all the flour and milk have been added to the oil and blended well together add the tsp of apple cider vinegar and whisk briskly for several minutes.

Add your sponge batter to 2 two greased 9″ sponge spring form round pans and bake in the oven 170 C for 35 mins or until tops are golden and feel springy. Turn out when cool.

Frosting:

In your blender add 200g of nuts, cashews work well as do hazelnuts, add dates to sweeten 3-5 depending on taste, you can also add vanilla or cinnamon for flavour, then add a little water to cover the nuts. Blend until you have a good frosting consistency. Spoon over the top and centre of the two sponges and layer with fruits on the top.

Being Green Cashback

At Vegan Life Energy we are trying to be more eco-friendly. We are going to be using biodegradable waste bags and eco-laundry and cleaning products.

If you would like to help our efforts please see two suggestions below. If you can think of any other easy things for us to do please let us know. 

  • If you have time you could separate Plastics, Paper and Glass from your rubbish for recycling. Unfortunately food waste in Spain goes into general rubbish. 
  • If you are going out for the day you could switch off high energy consuming appliances like the air-con unit.  You can reheat or cool your room or apartment within 5 minutes of operating.

If you would like to do the two above we will reward you with 2% cashback at the end of your stay.

We also have 2 shopping trolleys free for anyone to use, just ask if you would like one. A few less plastic bags.

Thank you for your co-operation.
