Today I’d like to share a comforting and filling recipe that’s perfect for the colder days. It has been getting cooler here in the past week and winter is just around the corner, so I am looking forward to some good comfort food.
When I get the frozen bananas out of my freezer, it’s usually to make Nicecream. But this particular summer day, I just wanted a chocolate milkshake. Sometimes I miss having milkshakes. I used to love getting chocolate or vanilla milkshakes at fastfood restaurants when I was younger! But thinking about all the unhealthy & nasty stuff they put in there, I don’t feel the need to go there anymore. Much to my surprise, I created this absolutely delicious, thick and HEALTHY vegan chocolate milkshake!
When summer is as hot as it is here in Germany this year, you don’t really feel like eating or cooking heavy meals. This italian appetizer is easy to make and tastes awesome on a warm summer evening. It can be eaten as a snack or a whole meal.
Almost every time I make Nicecream, I try a different combination. You can put almost anything in it, so lately I have gotten really creative. This version is more of a classic, however, and it is probably my favorite so far. Hazelnut Nicecream with a chocolate drizzle!
This is a low-carb version of my beloved sushi, using chopped cauliflower as a rice substitute!
I usually drink my smoothies out of a glass. But after seeing smoothie bowls everywhere on Instagram, I had to give this a try! If anything, smoothie bowls can be decorated a lot prettier than smoothies.. 🙂 This one I made after a run and packed it with plenty of superfoods to nourish my body with some iron, magnesium, fiber and lots of other nutrients it was craving after the exercise. Smoothies are definitely the easiest way to get your daily fruit & veggie servings! Ingredients: 1/2 frozen banana 1 apple 2 big leaves of swiss chard 1/2 lemon handful of oats* 1/2 tsp spirulina a dash of plant milk (depending on preferred thickness) toppings of your liking (in the photos I used hemp hearts, chia seeds, goji berries, raspberries and pomegranate) *use gluten-free oats & milk to make gluten-free Instructions: Wash and cut fruit/veggies, squeeze lemon and combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth, pour into a bowl and top with superfood & fruit! ———————————————————————————————– Zutaten: 1/2 gefrorene Banane 1 Apfel 2 große Blätter Mangold …
By now, most people should have heard of hummus before. You can buy pre-made hummus at the store, but it’s so much better if you make it at home, not to mention really easy!
I recently did a 5 day detox program that I got from Our Clean Journey (it is available in German only for now). Detoxing is supposed to give your liver and kidneys a break and wash out toxins that have built up in the body. There are a lot of different ways to detox, but since I am not a fan of depriving myself of solid food for days, I chose this gentle program. The main idea of the Our Clean Journey detox is to cut out things like flour, animal products, alcohol, coffee, salt, sugar, preservatives and basically all processed food. In those 5 days, you make all your meals from fresh, unprocessed food, so it does take a little bit of time to prepare. To do the detox, I chose a few days when I was at home anyways, so I would be flexible enough to make food whenever I wanted. The plan provides you with 36 recipes for breakfast, lunch/dinner and snacks as well as a little 5 day planner, where you can plan out …
I came home from work, had in mind that I wanted to use up that spinach that was lying around in the fridge and then I whipped up this dinner within 20 minutes! I was so impressed by myself that I wanted to get the recipe out to you guys as soon as possible because it actually tasted pretty good!!
These quesadillas are the perfect comfort food to me! They are easy to make and so satisfying. If you want to make them a little healthier, just add some fresh baby spinach in the quesadillas or a salad on the side! They are also great to prepare in advance and take to work/school the next day.
