Sustainability and Eco-Friendly Blogger, Instagrammer, YouTuber and where to get Inspiration, Motivation and Education

Sustainability, eco-friendliness, minimalism, slow fashion, less waste, veganism, plastic-free are all so important topics more people need to get involved with.

Still, Influencers with new outfits daily, holding animal-cruelty make-up into the camera and earning money for promoting brands that exploit their workers and risk their lives. They jet around the world living in the most luxurious hotels and resorts and the only value they give to their followers is living the life everyone else dreams of.

I know they post great pictures, make everything look beautiful and I don’t want to hate on them. I just described this as the complete negative example and luckily most Influencers have some sort of positive value they spread.

But if you clicked on this blog post it means you are interested in other topics, in things that are far more important than pretty looks and money and that also gives you a purpose in life: to help save the future of our planet.

Media is a wonderful tool to spread awareness, information, motivation, inspiration and tips. Now we just need to give those people that have an important message, a positive impact and valuable information and tips to share more attention.

I love Instagram for my daily inspiration, education and motivation and the cool thing is, that there are already so many awesome accounts sharing important, helpful and still pretty and inspirational pictures and videos on their story and feed.

Life Update – Starting to Work, YouTube, My Plans

My best friend gave me the tip to make a YouTube video talking a bit about myself, what I am doing and what my plans are for new people on my blog and youtube… so here it is!

I thought it would be a good idea to share a little life update because I am not writing my travel diary anymore and you might get confused on what is going on and where I am atm because I am still working on blog post topics from my previous travels, even though I am working right now.

I also wanted to give you an idea on my job and there is a little blog post about finding jobs in Australia and my job coming soon as well, so if you have questions that I need to talk about in that post please message me!

Do you think it’s unnecessary for me to post a blog post when I post a video? I just feel like nobody would find it if I don’t… Do you follow me on YouTube yet? 

 

What I Eat on a Lazy Rainy Sunday in Australia

It’s not actually Sunday that I am doing this ‚What I Eat in a Day‘. It’s Monday to be honest. But it’s like a Sunday for me and my friend, roommate and colleague because it is our free day. And what do you do on a rainy, gray and lazy day on the Sunshine Coast, Australia? You eat some yummy vegan food. So that’s what we did – follow along!

11.20 am Brunch

I started my day with a run and walk along the river. At that time the sun was still shining and I could catch some good weather. I worked out for around an hour, had a shower and then it started to drizzle outside.

So we had to eat our yummy brunch inside instead of outside in the sun, but it was still so delicious! My favourite breakfast combi at the moment: toasted rye sourdough bread with avocado, fried soy sauce tofu strips, tomato and fresh spinach. And we also had some really sweet and juicy cantaloupe melon.

Originally our plan was it to go to a really cute town in the mountains. Unfortunately, the public transport here is so so bad and we would have had to drive in the bus for 3 hours there and back and could only spend 1,5 hours there. So that doesn’t make any sense and we’ll have to do that differently.

That’s why we decided to go to the next bigger city and to the shopping centre to get a few things we need (face cleanser and moisturizer, toothpaste and Tatjana got a bikini) and strolled a bit through the shops.

4.30 pm Moo-Free Burgers

Afterwards, we were starving and tried out a 100% plant-based restaurant someone recommended us. It’s called Moo-Free Burgers and I’ve already seen them in Sydney once.

They don’t just do fake beef and chicken burgers, but also healthy burgers, salads, loaded fries, nuggets, toasties, bowls, nice cream, juices & smoothies and healthy cakes and raw treats. So we already decided that we need to come back to check out a few other things because there were soo many options on the menu and the prices are good.

So I had a falafel burger with beetroot, avocado, pickle, cabbage salad and tomato relish and we shared the „nuggets“ and fries with aioli. The burger was super delicious, the only thing is that it could have been warmer. The „nuggets“ were really crispy and super delicious and they actually looked and tasted a bit like chicken, definitely worth a try. And the chips were amazing! You wouldn’t expect it from their look, but they are so much better than normal fries I know. Extra crunchy but still soft inside and seasoned with herbs.

6.30 pm Vegan Halo Top

And then Coles had 1/2 price on Halo Top ice cream. So we obviously needed to take some home. We got toasted coconut and peanut butter cup, both the dairy-free versions with coconut milk and tried them later. They are super creamy and so delicious!

The toasted coconut is so yummy and has some toasted coconut shreds in the ice cream and the peanut butter cup is not too peanut butter-y itself but has peanut butter swirls inbetween. They are both so so good and even better together, not too sweet and the best – they are vegan and don’t have many calories.

Tatjana also said that they taste much better than the dairy versions because she already tried and didn’t like those, which means – vegan wins!

So I hope you enjoyed this random, lazy „Sunday“ food diary and let me know in the comments what kind of blog posts you are interested to see more on my blog!
