Astrology love next level- wear your sign!

One of the very first things that I tend to say about myself or ask about when meeting someone refers to astrology. Somehow, I tend to get involved in the topic in one way or another almost every time. I guess it’s no wonder that astrology and anything related to it is a hot topic here as well… And I have something very exciting which associates with it that I wanted to share with you here. My love for Sun, Moon & Rising Signs, the Houses, Ascendants, and more elevated to the next level. All thanks to probably the most amazing necklace ever!

What astrology means to me

As you probably know by now, I am a Capricorn Sun, Cancer Moon, and Scorpio Rising. No wonder I am first off in love with anything to do with learning new things, sourrounding myself by beautiful, aligned energy, and also physical objects as well as being a super-sensitive and spiritual being. Most of my favorite things to do but also things are in some shape or form aligned with my astrological characteristics… And ever since I dove deep into the mystery & secrets that this ancient wisdom and basically a way of living enable every single one of us to do, to be and to become it all makes so much sense- and even more fun!

Proud to be a Capricorn!

Yes, I may be a perfectionistic Capricorn Sun & Cancer Moon that keeps on constantly looking for improvements and I sometimes have issues with setting boundaries. But protecting the emotional side inside of me can be a challenge at times, too. This is 111% me and every day I learn more about how to best work with my imperfections. Moreover, I see them rather as a possibility than a weakness. I am proud to be exactly the way I am. And learning more about my natal chart, working with the moon cycles, signs, and anything connected to planetary constellations is what truly made all the difference in my journey of self-development and my spiritual evolution.

How I leveled up my astrology love

Now, as you have probably guessed by the title, this post is all about my leveling up of this passion I keep deep in my heart for Astrology. When I learned about this necklace, I couldn’t believe it at the very beginning. Everything about it seemed to be too amazing to be true. It was as if all I was looking for in jewelry and I have been searching for, combined in one piece. First off, my standards as to which pieces I wear are very high. I believe in minimalistic and high- quality products that not only look pretty. But align with my overall way of living, my ethics as well as some other factors such as material, environmental impact, and more.

I now that so many of you feel the same way about it as I get so many messages and questions regarding exactly that. And I am happy to share this with you: This necklace is for us. Not only is it made of 24K Gold Vermeil (or if you prefer the silver one: Sterling Silver), but each one of them is hand finished and therefore unique in itself- just like you.

As for the material, you will only see high quality recycled gold as the material – which I really appreciate! Trying to save as many resources as possible can be a challenge and sometimes not feel very satisfying. But once you hold this precious jewelry in your hands, you’ll see: it can also be the best feeling ever! And even more so: it not only is recycled material but ethically sourced and sourced in conflict-free zones.

Stilnest knows what I love & how to make me happy with a necklace that is 111% ME

Ok, let’s talk about individuality once more. As I said, each of the necklaces is hand finished and therefore has it’s own unique touch to it. But what’s more: Stilnest only produces the jewelry after you ordered it. The goal is to avoid mass production which is something we see so rarely these days. You also will get your necklace sent to you straight from the goldsmith- how cool is this? Not only does this make you feel like it is custom-made, but it also minimizes carbon footprint.

Well, I have to admit: that already blew my mind… And then, I did not even go into detail about the pendant itself. You can choose between the 12 astrology signs and select the one you’d like. As for me, I went for my Sun Sign, which I guess most of us would do, but of course, feel free to wear the one that feels most like YOU. And to be honest: each one of them is so pretty! If I had to choose, I couldn’t really decide which one to pick.

Let’s wear our love for astrology!

I really hope you now are just as hooked for this beautiful necklace just as I am! You can find the Zodiac Seal Necklace in 4 different materials, 3 different necklace sizes and 12 different Zodiac signs here.

Can’t wait to see you wearing it and also hear how you like it.

Sending you all my Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio love!

XX,

Nicola

Veganes Mac’n Cheese- gesund & proteinreich

Wer hat behauptet, dass Vegan sein Langeweile und Eintönigkeit bedeutet?! Nun, spätestens jetzt wird der letzte Skeptiker überzeugt. Denn so ist es ganz und gar nicht. Es ist sogar gegenteilig. Denn so viel Kreativität und Ideenreichtum wie es mit einer pflanzlichen Ernährung möglich ist, kenne ich sonst nirgends. Und dabei ist es nicht nur so, dass man sich in der Küche austoben kann, sondern es auch noch super schmeckt und gleichzeitig so unglaublich gesund ist. Dies möchte ich euch heute einmal mehr mit einer gesunden, pflanzlichen Variante von Mac’n Cheese beweisen.

Alles, was es dafür benötigt: Blumenkohl, Cashews, Pflanzenmilch, Zitrone, Nährhefe, Kurkuma und Pasta. Bei der Pasta habe ich mich für eine meiner absoluten Lieblingssorten entschieden. Die Sojabohnen- Pasta von Edamama. Sie schmeckt so richtig gut, hat einen tollen Biss und pimpt das Mac’n Cheese durch einen extra Protein Boost auf.

Mac'n Cheese

Zutaten

  • 1/2 Blumenkohl
  • 200 g Cashews
  • 200 ml Pflanzenmilch (ich habe Mandelmilch verwendet)
  • 3-4 EL Nährhefe
  • Prise Kurkuma
  • Zitronensaft
  • 100 g Pasta (meine Empfehlung: Sojabohnen Pasta von Edamama)

Zubereitung

  • Cashews über Nacht einweichen
  • Blumenkohl für 10- 15 Minuten dünsten
  • Den fertigen Blumenkohl mit den Cashews, dem Zitronensaft, der Nährhefe, dem Kurkuma und der Pflanzenmilch mixen
  • Die Pasta für 5- 7 Minuten kochen
  • Alles vermischen und genießen
Mac'n Cheese Pasta

Dieses Mac’n Cheese sieht einfach zu gut aus um gesund zu sein. Doch ihr werdet merken: durch den Blumenkohl, die Nährhefe und die Cashews habt ihr eine geballte Ladung an Nährstoffen. Und dann noch die Pasta aus Sojabohnen. Es ist einfach die perfekte Kombination aus essentiellen Mikro- und Makronährstoffen. So seid ihr fit und vorbereitet auf jedes Workout und jede Lernsession!

Ich freue mich schon, zu hören, wie es euch schmeckt! Bis ganz bald und viel Spass beim Kochen,

Sommer Buddha Bowl – vegan​ & einfach

Wenn du dir meinen Instagram account ansiehst, denkst du vielleicht, dass 99% meiner Mahlzeiten smoothie bowls sind. Doch so sehr ich sie auch liebe, so sind tatsächlich der größte Teil meiner Gerichte meine geliebte Sommer Buddha Bowl. Also zumindest in dieser Jahreszeit.

Sommer Buddha Bowl vegan und einfach

Ich liebe es, Abwechslung in meine Buddha Bowls zu bringen. Je nachdem, was gerade in Saison ist, wie das Wetter ist und wie ich mich fühle. Gerade in den wärmeren Monatenbevorzuge ich es, “kühlende” Gemüsesorten in meine Bowls zu mischen. So etwa Spinat oder Grünkohl. Ein weiterer Favorit ist Sauerkraut. Und dieses am liebsten kalt, in meiner Sommer Buddha Bowl- das ist einfach das Beste überhaupt!

Sommer Buddha Bowl- eine einfache Anleitung

Das großartige an Buddha Bowls is ihre Vielseitigkeit. Du kannst im Prinzip alles verwenden, was du möchtest. Je mehr Farben, desto besser sind sie. Also wenn es meine Bowl betrifft, dann liebe ich es, Ofengemüse mit rohen Sorten zu mischen, eine gute Sauce hineinzumischen und sie mit der Sonne im Gesicht zu genießen. Also, fühl dich frei deine Sommer Buddha Bowl so zu gestalten, wie du es magst. Sei aber darauf bedacht, so viele verschiedene Gemüsesorten wie möglich hinein zu mischen.

Zutaten

100 Gramm Brokkoli

200 Gramm Kartoffeln oder Süßkartoffeln (oder beide mischen)

100 Gramm Blumenkohl

Eine Handvoll Spinat

100 Gramm Kichererbsen

Ein wenig rohes Gemüse (Tomaten, Gurke, Karotten…)

Sauerkraut

Sprossen

Nüsse und Samen als Topping

1 Teelöffel Tahini

Eine Prise Paprikapulver, Kurkuma und Currypulver

Eine Zitrone

Etwas Nährhefe

Apfelessig

Vorbereitung

Den Brokkoli schneiden und für mindestens 40 Minuten stehen lassen (so wird Sulphoraphan gebildet.)

Ofen auf 180 ° C vorheizen

Schneide die Kartoffeln und den Blumenkohl und lasse sie im Ofen für 20 Minuten backen.

Brokkoli und Kichererbsen für 10 Minuten kochen.

Gib diese zum Ofengemüse für ca 5- 10 Minuten hinzu, um es ein wenig knackiger zu backen.

Schneide das rohe Gemüse

Mische den Zitronensaft, das Tahini, die Gewürze und den Apfelessig mit der Nährhefe.

Gib all die Gemüsesorten in eine Bowl und mische sie mit der Sauce. Toppe die Sommer Buddha Bowl mit Sprossen und Samen.

Ich hoffe, dir schmeckt dieses einfache und leckere Rezept genau so gut wie mir. Viel Spaß beim Kreativ werden mit deiner Sommer Buddha Bowl.

Ganz viel Liebe, Nicola

Get to know your True Self…with your Human Design & Astrology

If you are just a little bit like me, you are somewhat obsessed with getting to know yourself as much as you possibly can. There is nothing that seems to be too out there, Woo-Woo or extreme to try out in order to learn more about your mind, body and soul. And I totally am all for that! However, what I have found to be missing for me over the past years of soul searching which I could not find in any book, breath-work session, reiki session or meditation is a key to really understand my entire being. There have been days where I was just so frustrated and depleted and could not understand why all the energy, resources and time spent into uncovering my truth would not bring me the AHA- Moment I was hoping for. Well, that was until I discovered- and more importantly understood – my unique Human Design and Astrology.

Human Design and Astrology- the key to your Soul

You may have heard of your Sun Sign, Ascendant and Moon Sign already, and might have already uncovered your Human Design Energy Type or even Authority. And that is amazing! When I learned mine, it was like someone foreign knew exactly what was going on inside me. It was a pivotal moment in my soul searching journey, for sure. But Astrology and Human Design go so much deeper than that surface-level knowledge.

There are so many aspects to it that literally would take a lifetime of devoted studies to uncover for yourself. And I indeed am someone who loves to dive deep into a topic and learn as much as possible. BUT: I also want to see results of what I have learned rapidly- yes another trait I fully embraced thanks to knowing my Human Design and natal chart. And that is why I believe that having an expert on my side who not only has all the knowledge and Sensibility it needs to fully analyze you on a deeper level is a decisive aspect. One more thing to mention as well: having an expert at your side is the only way to get an outside perspective and put it all into a frame for you. Besides being able to analyze your characteristics, show you your unique gifts, energies a huge part is also having then the tools at your hands that will be perfectly customized for yours truly.

And this is where the DayLuna Human Design and Astrology Boxes come into play. The Boxes are custom made just for you.

About the DayLuna Human Design and Astrology Boxes

There are several different Boxes you can choose from: the PHS System, Human Design, Natal Chart and Saturn Return. Each will come with a beautifully designed printed Guidebook that not only will be your in-depth explanation of your own self, but also a bunch of goodies perfectly matched to your chart.

Shayna and Dana, the founders of DayLuna, will hand-pick all the gifts you will receive with your box according to your birth time and date. Then, you will receive this magical box of goodies which on top of all this will be first infused with the power of reiki to boost its effect even more. I mean, how unique is this? I was already blown away by this fact alone.

You can really tell that the two are fully pouring their heart and soul into crafting the magical boxes for you.

In this post, I would love to share with you the two boxes that I got: The 3 Chart Combo Box and the PHS Chart Box.

The DayLuna 3 Chart Combo Box

This Box consists of three different charts: the Human Design, Personality / Astrology Birth Chart as well as the Saturn Return Chart. So you will receive three Guidebooks that will go in depth into explaining basically your whole soul to you. As I have already been diving deep into uncovering my own Human Design and Astrology through readings, books and research, I already knew quite a lot about me- so I thought. But the information in there went even more in-depth. Reading about all the Characteristics that define me through my Human Design type, authority, Saturn Placement, and more felt like getting to know myself on an even deeper level. I had to re-read it for several times to fully digest it all. And I am sure, that I will every time I come back to it will discover something new.

Included, I found a set of Chakra Crystals, a Rainbow Crystal Prism, a magical Journal, an Intention Setting Candle, A Chart Based Essential Oil Blend- Sacral Authority for me- as well as a personalised set of crystals- which included Green Opal, a Palo Santo Stick and even more goodies! Each of the items is not only a perfect match for me personally, but one can really feel their high quality – no matter your design and chart.

The PHS – Food, Digestion, Environment, Perspective and Motivation Box

The PHS Box is basically a breakdown of your Food, Digestion, Environment, Motivation and Perspective. It gives you detailed information of the surroundings that nourish both your soul and body, how you function best and how you can support yourself- through rituals as well as the hand-picked tools that will come with the box.

The box will include – again everything perfectly matching your personal Chart- a ceremonial grade cacao, a beautiful hand made ceremony mug, your personalised manifestation candle and essential oil, a Magic of I Journal and more.

The Magic of Getting to Know Yourself

These Boxes work true magic. Never would I have imagined that reading something about myself and having perfectly matching tools in my hands that go along with the words would make me feel so connected and understood. This is not only such a beautiful gift to yourself, but the most perfect gift for anyone who is dear to your heart. Because what gift is bigger than fully understanding yourself and aligning with your souls purpose?

I cannot wait to read how you felt after opening your own DayLuna Human Design and Astrology Box! See you soon and lots of love,

Nicola
