Knusprigstes Saaten-Buchweizenbrot

Diese Woche möchte ich mit einem leckeren Brotrezept beenden!

Knuspriges Kastenbrot mit Saaten

Dieses Buchweizenbrot ist glutenfrei und ballaststoffreich, kommt ohne Hefe aus und eignet sich in der Zusammensetzung auch für eine Fodmap-freundliche Ernährung. Die Kruste wird unheimlich kross und verfeinert durch eine Menge Saaten, die sich beliebig variieren lassen!🙂

Innen saftig und fluffig, außen mit Kruste und leckeren Saaten! 🙂

Zudem ist dieses Brot unkompliziert zuzubereiten. Klingt alles gut bisher? Dann lass uns backen! Ich habe euch das Mehl das ich verwendet habe hier einmal verlinkt:

Zutaten:

  • 150 g Buchweizenmehl
  • 150 g glutenfreie Mehlmischung (z. B. für Brote)
  • 2 TL Backpulver
  • 1 TL Salz
  • 150 ml Wasser
  • 60 ml Sonnenblumenöl/Rapsöl

Saaten:

  • 30 g Leinsamen
  • 10 g Chiasamen
  • 200 ml Wasser

Topping:

  • 1 EL Sonnenblumenkerne
  • 1 EL Kürbiskerne
  • 1 TL Sesam

Zubereitung:

  • Die Saaten für den Brotteig zunächst in einer Schale abwiegen und mit 200 ml Wasser aufgießen, verrühren und eine halbe Stunde quellen lassen.
  • Den Ofen auf 170° C Ober-/Unterhitze vorheizen und eine längliche Backform vorbereiten, diese ggf. mit ein wenig Öl fetten – ich benutze gerne Backformen aus Silikon, da diese nicht gefettet werden müssen.
  • Die trockenen Zutaten in einer Schüssel abwiegen und gut vermengen. Dann achtsam zuerst das Öl eingießen, gefolgt vom Wasser – gleichzeitig mit einem Löffel anfangen zu rühren, damit sich keine Klümpchen bilden können.
  • Nun die gequollenen Saaten untermischen und die Masse zu einem klebrigen Teig verrühren – du brauchst hier wirklich keinen Schneebesen oder kein Rührgerät, der Teig sollte nur ganz kurz vermengt werden.
  • Den Teig in die vorbereitete Backform füllen und an der Oberfläche glatt streichen. In der Mitte mit einem Messer etwa einen Zentimeter einschneiden und das Brot mit den Saaten für das Topping bestreuen. Hier kann natürlich variiert werden – auch Mandelplättchen, Chiasamen, Mohnsaat ist möglich! Nimm was du am liebsten magst und zur Hand hast!🙂
  • Das Brot in den Ofen schieben und für 1 Stunde und 20 Minuten backen. Nach einer Stunde mit einem Holzstäbchen in die Mitte piksen, wenn kein Teig mehr an dem Stäbchen hängen bleibt, kannst du den Ofen ausmachen und das Brot noch in der Restwärme nachbacken lassen.
  • Nimm das Brot dann zum Abkühlen aus dem Ofen und lass es noch eine halbe Stunde in der Backform – am besten kühlt es auf einem Gitter aus. Dann kann das Brot aus der Backform gelöst werden – es duftet verführerisch und schmeckt leicht warm und knusprig, super lecker!🙂
  • Das Brot bleibt bis zu vier Tage frisch, dann sollte es im Kühlschrank aufbewahrt werden, am besten in einer Tupperdose. Getoastet schmeckt es dann wieder frisch und hält insgesamt eine Woche.
  • Lass dir das Brot schmecken!
Genieße dein Brot frisch und warm aus dem Ofen mit einem leckeren Gemüseaufstrich!

Wenn dir das Rezept gefallen hast, lass gerne einen Kommentar hier und verlinke mich unter @fromayurvedawithlove auf Instagram! Teile gerne deine Verbesserungsvorschläge und Variationen mit mir, damit wir alle etwas davon haben!

From my heart to yours,

“Late Summer Porridge”

I am sorry that I am not the food blogger which takes 500 pictures from my creations! I am simply too hungry when I am making food! ⠀

But I am the food blogger which shares with you this mouth watering “Late Summer Porridge” recipe – and this! Is going to serve your taste buds!

This Porridge recipe is perfect for breakfast in August and beginning of September, it is also Pitta – Vata friendly! Done with water and without the banana, using quinoa instead of oats it can also serve you Kapha peeps!

So here is this delicious bowl of mine! I hope you will love it! I was spooning it so slowly this morning because I loved how the tastes melted together on my tongue…

This bowl reminds me on late summer, August evenings – the evening light is glowing golden and the days are getting shorter

Ingredients: ⠀

1 cup of gluten free oats⠀

1 tbsp of tiger nuts porridge ⠀

1 – 2 cups of water⠀

1/2 cup of frozen berries ⠀

1/2 ripe banana ⠀

1 tsp of raw chocolate ⠀

1 tsp of chias ⠀

1 tbsp of coconut flakes ⠀

1 tbsp of agave syrup ⠀

Easy, peasy preparation in 10 minutes!

Preparation: ⠀

1. Bring water in a small pot to boil, reduce heat and add the oats. Stirring is recommended a whole lot! 🤗⠀

2. Start to heat the berries in another small pot together with the agave juice. ⠀

3. Add tiger nuts porridge to your oats, stir well and turn off the heat, remove from plate and set aside. ⠀

4. Chop banana into slices, chop raw chocolate into pieces. Add the porridge to a bowl and start topping: first the banana slices, then the warm berries on one side of your bowl, now the chocolate and everything else on top! ⠀

It’s one of the most delicious combinations I ever tried and I hope you will love it too! The choclate melts on your hot porridge and the wild, warm berries and chocolate are tasting together so vibrant and grounding!

I used here @lovechock_official chocolate because that’s my favorite raw chocolate around! #notsponsored

Try my recipe, make a picture and post it on your Social Media, tag our page @fromayurvedawithlove to get a repost or story feature! And let us know how much you liked it for sure!

Have a beautiful Saturday!

  •  From Ayurveda With Love means compassion and finding our Dharma in life, so can you tell us what you are compassionate about?

My Dharma is to help people understand, love, and appreciate what makes them unique, through Yoga and Ayurveda, so that they can live their best life.

  •   Tell us where do you come from, what you are doing and what your plans look like for 2019?

I am originally from the Midwestern region of the US, but have been living in Seattle (the West Coast) for about the last 10 years. This year, I’m refining my business, meaning I’m setting myself up to spend more time doing new and exciting things, relaxing, and hanging out with my family. Fall of 2019, I am planning on heading to France, which has been a childhood dream.

  •      Where do you teach/work/heal actually?

I own a yoga studio (Seattle) and an online platform, Eka Yoga, that is dedicated to reconnecting Yoga and Ayurveda through education and inspiration.

  •     What do you know about Ayurveda? Do you practice it already?

I know quite a bit! I have been studying Ayurveda for nearly 10 years and it is a huge part of my everyday life and practices.

  •     What are your thoughts about Ayurveda?

I love it! Through the ancient wisdom of both Ayurveda and Yoga, I healed my own body and mind. I am continually amazed how it is able to transform lives.

  •     Do you know which Dosha you are?

I am Vata dominant, with a big dose of Kapha.

  •     How does your perfect morning routine looks like?

I love my morning routine! I normally leave my house around 5:45 am every morning to teach, so I do get up quite early to get everything in, but it’s well worth it.

– Wake up

– Tongue Scrape

– Drink warm water with lemon

– Oil pull

– Bathe while oil pulling

– Spit out oil and then brush teeth.

– Meditate or journal for 10-15 minutes. There are days where this is only 2-3 minutes, but I make sure it always happens. J

  •     How do you integrate Ayurveda into your day to day life?

Both my morning routine and evening routine are heavily focused around Ayurvedic daily habits. As of right now, in the evening, I only practice dry brushing and Abhyanga about once a week, but I do massage my feet with oil every night to promote a good night of sleep.

As for food, I enjoy cooking, so I normally make most of my meals fresh. Being Vata dominant, my belly does way better with cooked vegetables that are heavily spiced.

I also, of course, practice yoga daily. Sometimes I go to a class; sometimes my practice is just my dog and me in the living room.

  •  Is there some Ayurvedic practice you would like to try but never had the chance?

Yes… I have not yet done a full and proper Panchakarma session. I would love to go away to a serene location and be fully guided through the practice  

  • Are you into Yoga or practicing it?

Yes and yes. I have been practicing for about 15 years and teaching for a little over 10 years.

  • Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?

Living a joyful and abundant life with my husband and kids (no kids yet), somewhere a bit more sunny than Seattle. I see myself running my business online so that I am able to help more people feel like the best version of them!    

  • What is your greatest weakness? What are you doing to improve it?

I always feel the need to justify what I am doing to ensure people know that everything I do has been thought out and with good intentions. I have a fear of being judged and not liked, which has, many times, put me in my own way. It’s silly some of the things we think, believe, tell ourselves.

Anyway… I am aware of it and I have asked my husband to call me out  whenever I do it to break the habit. Often, I don’t even realize I am doing it. Eeek!

  • How did you find the path you are on right now? Was there a key moment?

I fell into it.  It started with gym yoga, which I absolutely hated the first time I did it, as I am not athletic or coordinated and it forced me to be alone with my thoughts. Quick back-story: I was diagnosed with depression around the age of 7 and had a challenging upbringing, by the time I hit college and took this yoga class; I was a pretty angry and bitter human being.  The only reason I went back was because I bought a pass and I was determined to get my money’s worth.  After a couple months of yoga, I noticed that my insomnia was lessening and my lower back didn’t hurt as much, so I kept going.  Long story short, I met a yoga professor who introduced me to more of the spiritual side of yoga, and it blew my mind! Shortly after, I decided to head to India to further my studies. In India, I was introduced to Ayurveda, which was probably my key moment. There, I realized how much Yoga and Ayurveda were changing me physically, mentally, and emotionally, and thought, “If I can do this, anyone can.”

  • How important is meditation to you?

Meditation wasn’t always a part of my practice because I felt like I couldn’t do it. However, after opening my own business I realized I could, I had to, and I could do it anywhere. Meditation is what keeps me grounded and helps me flow with ease and grace through each day.

  •  What is your philosophy and spiritual path?

Be kind to your self, others, and the planet. If you can do that, we all win!

  • What have you done into the last year to improve yourself?

I started doing talk therapy. Between running a business, managing staff, all of my yoga students, and Ayurvedic clients, I realized that I take in a LOT of input, feelings, and emotions each day with no real outlet.  I see a therapist monthly to literally just talk it out. This allows me to release all that I absorbed over the month, resolve any internal conflicts I’m battling with and also be more present with my clients and students.

  •    Who has been your greatest influence?

I’m Vata, I can’t just choose one! Most recently, I’ve been reading everything Deepak Chopra, and feeling very inspired and connected to his message.

  •  What is your greatest strength?

I’m inviting.  I like making people feel safe and welcome, whether it’s in their own body, a physical space, or on social media.

  •   How do you handle stress and pressure?

The usual… Yoga, meditation, and most importantly, breathing. Breath work is amazing because you can do it anywhere and at any time. When I know that I have a busy or stressful period of time coming up, I will also take Ashwagandha daily to help combat that fight or flight response.

  • What are your favorite self-care practices and rituals?

I love daily walks with my pup, nightly oil foot massages, and a weekly face mask/reading session.

  • Are you into Wellness?

Yes!

  • What are your thoughts about the Zero Waste movement and do you also try to reduce your waste?

I am definitely on board with the Zero Waste Movement and I do try to reduce my waste. I’m lucky to live in a city that has banned plastic bags and is huge on composting, so it makes it pretty easy to get started.

  •  Where do you find your ideas for your creative content? Is there also an “outer” life besides posting and blogging, like painting?

It has to be the Vata in me because I never run out of ideas. I’m not sure where it actually comes from. Sometimes I get an idea by someone I saw walking down the street. (“Is laughing.”) The hardest part for me is sitting down long enough to make them into something real and tangible.

I really love the opportunity to create anything in any way shape or form. I do draw or doodle as another form of mindfulness and meditation.

Feel great with our 6 days AyurYoga Detox – you can do it at home!

Fasting, Detox and other cleansing techniques – you maybe read a bunch and hear a lot actually about it. Spring just arrived and historically every culture got it´s own way to fast – periodically fasting to keep the body, mind and soul healthy. We can help our body a lot to detoxify and keep our cells, organs and tissue young and functional.

Ayurvedic detoxifying techniques are mellow and ingenious. The most important is the so called “Panchakarma treatment.” Panchakarma is a long treatment and can hardly be done alone. So Ayurveda got for sure some treatments which can be done at home and they are also nourishing and healing.

Fasting and Detoxing should be done for some days and we should step back and slow down while doing it. But I also wanted to add a practice which can be done without taking some days off at work. A gentle and nourishing practice, which we can add to our day to day life and which will also help us to cleanse our system.

Free Ayurvedic Detox Guide

On the first of April I will publish my little 6 day-detox-guide, that comes along with a 6 days #AyurYogaChallenge on Instagram. This ebook is going to be available as a FREE download. It will lead you through the first steps of a Detox with recipes, cleansing techniques and Yoga poses. And on top, you can also win some cool stuff! Make sure to check in there and follow @fromayurvedawithlove for more informations about Hosts, sponsors and the Detox.

Why do we need detoxification?

Toxins show up in varieties in our system and body. Throughout the environment we are living in, our diet, chemical reactions in our body because of stress. According to Ayurveda is a detoxification an important practice to keep us healthy and functional. When we talk about toxins, we talk about “Ama.” Ama means literally “what we did not digested.” When we eat too much and also wrong things, our body can´t digest well and our digestive fire, the so called “Agni” is working low. To digest all the Ama, we need to have a strong Agni.

Ama shows up as a white, thick coat – which you also can see on your tongue sometimes. During aging, our body also need help to get rid of Ama more. Ama is the start of all sickness and illness. An ayurvedic word for illness is “Amaya” – which means “product of Ama.”

According to Ayurvedic science there is at first Rasa (digestive product) and out of Rasa, the so called Dhatus (tissues). If your Agni is low, your system can´t digest Rasa and so it leads to Ama in your intestines. In the normal cases, your body can digest it well and get rid off it constantly. When we are out of balance, our body safes that Ama and our digestive fire can´t work like it should. So increase Agni is one important element to eliminate Ama.

Ama for itself is also not the problem. It´s going to be tricky when it connects with the Doshas. The older scripts like The Chakra Samhita describes this progress as the start of many illnesses.

We should detox regularly. Twice a year would be awesome. Once a month maybe better. When you experience the following symptoms, you should start and detox with us!

  • Symptoms of indigestion
  • A bad breathe
  • Constantly tired
  • No appetite
  • Feeling weak
  • Sadness
  • Lethargy

Also allergies and other symptoms can be caused by Ama. Like a stuffed nose and skin problems.

In Ayurvedic Detox we strengthen the digestive fire, the Agni.

We don´t starve, we cleanse our body and help with warm food, spices, herbs and Yoga.

We eat more soups and porridges, no cold food and skip coffee, alcohol.

We skip heavy and oily foods for these days.

Are you curious now? I would like to see you on Instagram and also here as well! Find a new but traditionally way to detox for a few days!

Also show by tomorrow – we will post our first Interview! I can tell you so far: she is also connected to the #AyurYogaDetox challenge and is already an Ayurvedic practitioner and Yoga teacher. You can win an Ayurvedic consultation with her! (Online!) Sounds nice?

Beautiful Sunday to you and Namaste!
