After having overnight oats for breakfast every day of the week for a few years (and pancakes or oatmeal on the weekends), I’m now experimenting more with different foods for breakfast. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorites because they’re naturally lightly sweet and easy to combine with other breakfast foods, like coconut yogurt and granola.
I love having smoothie bowls for breakfast! Especially when they’re made with a high speed blender, so they are actually as smooth as their name suggests. Smoothies make it easy to sneak in all important nutrients, they are creamy, versatile and delicious. This one contains more vegetables than fruits, but you can’t even taste them!
In my opinion, nothing (apart from the smell of freshly brewed coffee) is more pleasant to wake up to than a house smelling of warm cinnamon and toasted nuts. This is exactly what you will get when you make a batch of this vegan granola.
Last week, I could only eat soft foods because I had a wisdom tooth surgery. And since I was really craving chocolate and we had a few ripe avocados, I tried out this chocolate mousse.
If you are currently (self-)quarantined at home, and don’t know what to do with yourself anymore…why not bake a cake? This vegan red wine cake is one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever made, and it turns out so good every time!
There are a few types of Christmas cookies that you can find everywhere in Germany around Christmas – the classics. Next to simple butter cookies, you have vanilla moon cookies, and these cinnamon stars.
When I was little, my mom and I used to spend the weekends before Christmas in the kitchen, making all sorts of different cookies and gingerbread. While my mom is a passionate baker, I prefer cooking and don’t really bake a lot. But this year, I decided to make vegan Christmas cookies for the first time, and give them away to friends.
I have a bit of a love-hate-relationship with coffee. As with so many foods, some sources say coffee is healthy, while others say it is unhealthy. I believe that it probably depends on your own body whether you metabolize coffee well or not.
This is how I prepare my breakfast for the work week. I eat the same breakfast almost every day, because it’s easy, nutritious and sooo good! I never get tired of it.
If you grew up in Germany, there is a good chance you grew up with Nutella. In our house, we always stocked at least one glass of Nutella and it was a sweet & constant part of my childhood. I remember when I visited my grandmother after kindergarten, she would make me a bread roll with butter and Nutella while I was watching The Simpsons. 🙂
