Attila Hildmann: German, Vegan, Ironman, Bad Ass. *Giveaway!

Interview with Attila, German bestselling author and celebrity chef

I had the pleasure of connecting with German bestselling author and celebrity chef, Attila Hildmann, and checking out his newly released cookbooks: Vegan for Fit and Vegan for Fun. I was sold on his awesomeness by this fantastic bio:

"A success story on his own, Attila lost 77 lbs after the loss of his father to a heart attack--a transformation he likes to call 'from fat ass to bad ass.'

A self-taught vegan chef from a bratwurst-ridden society, Attila sets himself apart from the vegan movement, supporting the notion that his followers need not adopt a 100% vegan diet. Even consuming vegan meals for one day each week will improve your health, which is what he inspires avid carnivores around the world to do."

Or, '4 Vegans Chew On 3 Questions'

Have you heard of The China Study? It's a research project that was done involving 100 people in rural China over 20 years, studying 'dietary and lifestyle factors associated with disease mortality.'

The conclusion of the study was that people who eat a whole-food, plant-based/vegan diet (like what I share here!) will avoid, reduce or reverse certain common diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

The daughter of the China Study researcher and author (T. Colin Campbell) has put together a cookbook based on the recommendations in the study - as well as a new All-Star Collection.

A big part of being vegan goes beyond food, and into what we wear and what we buy. So many products use leather, wool, silk - and so many beauty products are tested on animals.

Likewise, a big part of caring for our ecosystem is choosing to buy products that use sustainable materials. Organic cotton and animal-free leather are excellent places to start.

A good friend of mine, Linda, makes these gorgeous handbags that focus on eco-friendly and vegan materials.

Delicious chocolate smoothie to help me kick my chocolate addiction

I have a confession to make: I've let myself get stuck in a couple of bad habits lately, and I am really keen to break out of them.

One thing is that I've been eating a bit too much chocolate. It's dark chocolate, quite lovely, and I usually only have a couple of squares, so it's not a huge deal.

But the point is that I'm eating out of habit, not always out of enjoyment.

How To Make Kombucha That Fills You With Effervescence (Video)

I love kombucha. I've talked about why I love it before, but the problem is that it costs a fair bit when you want to drink it five times a day, like I do.

The solution? Brewing my own kombucha!

Now, I've been putting this off for a long time now. Like, a long time. I don't want to admit to you how long I've had a kombucha starter kit in my possession and not gone ahead and made it.
