Vegan Festival Cook Martin Svitek aka the “Chief Of Happiness” Aims To Replace Festival Munch
Lunch bags, not munch bags! Vegan festival cook Martin Svitek shows why food is karma with a boomerang effect to health
Resist The Consumer Trap
How can I avoid the temples of consumption we’re lured in nowadays, and still eat healthy? – A question arising among all those whose definition of “healthy” go beyond frozen pizza. In the end, one mostly has to decide for either quality or price.
Think Outside The Lunch Box
“Chief Of Happiness” and Yoga teacher Martin Svitek lives vegan since 2012 without having to convince others of his preferences. “Each according to his gusto”, he says. Important is to be mindful when choosing food: Veggies grown with love don’t necessarily need a certificate.
Practice Mindfulness Every Moment
Especially on festivals, healthy eating habits are easily replaced as eating becomes a triviality. That’s why on the New Healing Festival, Martin’s Karma Kitchen will reclaim our ability to consciously experience and find joy in the smallest of things. Enjoy a vegan festival – if you want!
New Healing festival
One step ahead of consumer society, all organizers, artists and participators join to revive the importance of sustainability and respect for nature. By combining spiritual and practical workshops with the celebration of music and dance, all of life’s facets are experienced.
Hand in Hand gehen hier Organisatoren, Helfer und Besucher einen Schritt in Richtung Nachhaltigkeit und finden gleichzeitig zurück zur Natur. Spirituelle Übungen und praktische Kurse harmonisieren mit Tanz und Musik, sodass alle Facetten der Menschlichkeit erlebt werden.
Vegan festival: Blueberry Cake Bomb
On a Bali travel, Martin discovers his fascination for raw desserts. Taking the idea home, his vegan blueberry cake is easy and tasty without baking.
Thinking of Bali, Martin immediately remembers their fantastic raw desserts which made his heart go crazy. This feeling of bliss is what he took home and transformed into a mouth-watering blueberry bomb for 12 food-friends. Best thing: This raw vegan delight is perfect for festival participants who crave something sweet, but still want to keep eating healthy. After an endless dance session, this vitamin bomb will soothe your immune system’s needs.
To prepare the cake, a cake mould with baking paper, a spacious ice box and perhaps a blender are needed.
400 g almonds
4 tbsp. honey or agave syrup
600 g cashews
10 dates (pitted)
8 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. honey
3 tsp. ground vanilla
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of cinnamon

Grind cashews. Add dates, lemon juice, honey, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, coconut oil and carefully mix with the blueberries. Apply the filling on top of the cake base. Keep the cake cool for 2 hours. Keep yourself cool by strolling around the festival area.
