Banana Bread with Mango, Blueberries and a Pistachio Crust

One of my all time favourite things to bake & eat is banana bread. It’s easy, super tasty and everyone loves it. This recipe is my most delicious one so far. I’m not bragging, it’s that good. It’s really moist, creamy, soft and crunchy at the same time. If you follow the recipe, you can’t go wrong. Eat…

Chia Oatmeal Pudding with Blueberries & Maple Syrup

I just can’t get enough of this breakfast: chia oatmeal pudding. I’ve been experimenting with it for some days now and this is by far my favourite yet. The best part is that you can actually make this the night before, taking it with you to work and enjoying an ice cold fresh breakfast without getting…

Quark with Summer Coulis & Grapefruit

This super easy and quick breakfast is perfect for people that love to work out or just need a little bit of extra energy in the morning.

Ever heard of Teff? Teff is a fine grain – about the size of a poppy seed – that comes in a variety of colors, from white and red to dark brown. Teff grows predominantly in Ethiopia and Eritrea. The grain has a very mild, nutty flavor, and it packs a serious nutritional punch. Teff has an excellent balance of…

The Perfect Post Work Out Salad

One and a half hour before my workouts, I try not to eat anything, maybe a banana or half a raw energy bar at most. My body simply does not agree with me if I eat a whole meal before a run, swim, crossfit session or hot yoga class. I get slower, nauseous and it even…

The Healthy Foodie Guide to Hamburg

In the first weekend of August, during the Cruise Days, I visited the city of Hamburg for the first time. Loved it. The harbour which is located in the centre of the city, the buzz around the cruise days, the contrast between the reeperban & winterhude, the bikes, the people and of course the tons of…

Healthy on a Budget // Spicy Chickpea Salad

It’s that time of the year again. That time of the year where you realise you need to start saving money and cut your spendings. At least, for me it is. Now, I’m not the person to cut my spendings on food, but I kind of have to. I have to make smarter choices. That’s why I’m…

Breakfast // Organic Greek Yoghurt + Superfoods

Breakfast // Acai Smoothie Bowl

A couple of weeks ago I discovered the ‘smoothie breakfast bowl’ for the first time through the Instagram account of blogger Luise from Green Kitchen Stories (this photo, to be precise). It’s really simple and I was surprised that I’ve never thought of this before: make your smoothie slightly thicker and put it in a…

Superfoods // My top 4 + their benefits

Superfoods, I love them. My tiny kitchen is filled with a wide range of superfoods; from the well known goji berries and home grown wheatgrass to the less known baobab powder and lucuma powder. This month my blog is all about superfoods. I will try to share my knowledge about as much superfoods as I…
