ASIAN PORRIDGE

Share this post

This asian inspired porridge bowl at THE SLOW in Bali was soooo delicious that i had to ask for the recipe and share it with you. I also loved the fact that they served it with red rice milk. 🙂 Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did and don’t be afraid of the long ingredient list :-).  You probably have most of it at home and I’m sure you can substitute grapes, apples with other fruits as well. I love golden raisins and am already thinking about making my own version of that porridge. 🙂 Have fun with the recipe and let me know if you’ve tried any new combinations. 🙂

Hi Caroline, nice recipe!

I was wondering how your family accepted your diet change. Mine are really against the vegan diet, very much pro-meat, mainly because they don’t think a high-carb diet is good for diabetes, which I might have through genetics.
I really want to lose weight and stay toned because I feel so much better about myself when I am thinner – and look better of course!
What do you recommend I do? Also, next year I will be at a boarding school, and going outside and buying groceries is a dilemma. They only have a small salad bar some apples, oranges, and sometimes banana.

    Hi Ivy,
    it was definitely not the easiest and they still make some comments here and there but i really don’t care about that. Its my choice, my life and my body and that is all that matters. Everyone should eat what makes them feel good and I told my family that this diet makes me really happy and balances and that they have to accept that.

    A lot of people including doctors say that too much fruit is bad for diabetes when in reality eating a high carb (high raw especially) vegan diet helps soooooo much with stabilizing your blood sugar levels. There is a very interesting documentary called “simply raw” about how the raw vegan diet helps to reverse diabetes. (I watched it on youtube)

    This diet is good for EVERYTHING and is my number 1 tip if you want to lose weight long term!! It makes you fit, healthy, happy and toned. I am also in university and always go to a local supermarkets in my breaks to buy fruits/ dates etc. Im sure you will be able to find some grocery shops near your school!:-))

    Hope that helps!:)
    Big kiss Caroline

Hi Caroline,

I have been a HCLF plant-based Vegan for little under a year. I eat healthily and get enough sleep, and water. I was wondering if you have any tips for fitness. I workout at home, but see little to no improvement in getting more fit or lean. I wonder if I’m doing it wrong, too little, or not enough protein. Thanks

    Hi Audria,
    what helps the most is cardio!! You get really good results, get your heart rate up and boost your metabolism. Spinning, boxing and running are my favourite!!:-))
    Hope that helps. 🙂

    Hi Audria,
    thanks so much for your message. I think its very important to be patient and to do this lifestyle long term. 🙂 It took me more than a year until I saw first changes in my body and I know it can be frustrating sometimes if you think you do everything right but nothing changes, but believe me the longer you are on the high carb vegan diet the easier it will become. Workout vise what helps a lot is doing more cardio. I saw a major difference in my body hen I started boxing. Its such a great whole body workout, boosts your metabolism a lot and makes you burn more fat. Running and spinning are also my all time favorite workouts and really helps to get more toned. :-))
    Hope that motivates you a bit! Im sure you’ll get there!! :-))
    have a lovely day!

    Hi Sandra,
    uiii das freut mich!! :-)) Hier auf Bali habe ich dieses oatmeal 3 tage hintereinander gegessen weil es so gut war:):) Wenn ich zuhause bin esse ich meisten Früchte zum Frühstück. Im Moment liebe ich es Melonen, mangos und Ananas morgens zu essen und einen grünen Smoothie aus Petersilie & Mango zu machen.

Hey Caroline my names is Kam
Well I was wondering if you can lose a lot of weight if you become a vegan? Where you always a thin girl or did this diet change your body?
Thanks
Kam

    Caroline Deisler March 31, 2017 Reply

    Hi Kam, 🙂 You can def lose weight on a high carb vegan diet! I was always quite slim but eating this way for almost 3 years now made me so much leaner and fitter without ever restricting my calories.
    Hope that helps! Also have a look at this post /”>http://carolineschoice.com/how-to-lose-weight-on-a-vegan-diet/

I really like your blog and Instagram. You inspired me to go vegan but I have some problems. I am bloated and honestly I am not loosing any weight. Can you please help me because I would really like to succes on this lifestyle and I really don’t want to go back on dieting so I can loose weigh.
Thanks, xoxo

    Caroline Deisler April 6, 2017 Reply

    Hi Marija,
    thank you so much!! 🙂 Loosing weight on this lifestyle will take some time. I am always recommending to eat as much as you want. Focus on getting fitter and healthier and not on losing weight. Weight loss will come naturally along the way once your body got used to the new lifstyle. It took me more than a year until I saw first changes in my body and that is totally normal.:-))
    To prevent bloating its really helpful to keep an eye on proper food combining. A few guidelines are
    1. Never combine melons with other fruits.
    2. Always eat fruits on an empty stomach.
    3. Don’t eat raw fruits after cooked food.
    4. Drink 3-4 liter of water per day
    5. Do some cardio, especially running helps to get rid of a bloated tummy.

    Hope that helps! :-))

Hi Caroline,

wie genau hieß die Doku “Simply Raw”? Bei youtube gibt es nämlich mehrere mit dem Titel 🙂

Wie viele Mahlzeiten isst du Durchschnittlich pro Tag?

Danke und liebe Grüße
Carly

      Hi Caro,

      Vielen Dank für deine Antwort 🙂
      Mich würde außerdem interessieren, wie bzw. was du isst, wenn du nicht nur Obst den Tag über isst? Kommt das oft vor oder ernährst du dich mittlerweile komplett Raw oder isst generell immer nur abends gekochte Gerichte?

      Freu mich auf deine Antwort 🙂

      xx Carly

        Hi Carly,
        ich esse wirklich fast jeden Tag Früchte tagsüber und nur Abends ein warmes essen.:-))

Hi Caro,
ich wollte dich auch noch fragen, was du bei deinem Make Up Tutorial bei YouTube für 2 goldene Ketten trägst? Kannst du mir sagen, von welcher Marke/ Firma sie sind?

Freue mich auf deine Antwort 🙂
