Hey guys, so this is my first entry for a very long time. I was very busy the last weeks, I am currently doing an internship and so last month I was very into doing just that. I still have one more month to work, but now I might not have to be 40-50h a week at the office. So time to blog again. Today I want to share a very tasty recipe with you: Vegan Meat Balls. As you can see on the picture above there will be lots of khorasan and curry involved. Khrorasan wheat is a great protein source, very healthy and is just perfect for preparing vegan meat balls, loafs or whatsoever. And the best thing, this is a totally satisfying hearty meal and its cruelty free and very healthy for you. Say good bye to high cholesterol and other first world problems.

Kamut has a nutty flavor, also called Khorasan wheat and makes a worthwhile addition to your diet. It provides you with fiber, protein and several minerals. Protein plays a central role in maintaining strong tissue and also aids in oxygen transport and immune function. Consume kamut as an excellent source of the essential minerals selenium and manganese. Both minerals function as antioxidants, which means they protect you from genetic mutations and cell membrane damage caused by free radicals. Kamut also benefits your health by providing considerable amounts of magnesium and zinc. A diet rich in zinc benefits your immune system and promotes healthy thyroid function, while magnesium strengthens bone tissue and activates enzymes your cells need to function.
Potatoes are nutrient dense, help to lower cholesterol and slows down digestion to keep you full longer. They are full of vitamin C, but most of it will get lost due to the heat of cooking. Moreover they contain vitamin B6, potassium, iron and copper.
