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.
I know it’s March and I should have posted this recipe in October, but hey – we’re back to fall weather in Amsterdam, so why not give this fall recipe a try? This recipe for vegan pumpkin soup is so basic, you can’t fail.
I was sick last week, and basically lived off of fruits, vegetables and ginger until I started feeling better. Instead of taking medicine, I gave my body rest and healthy food and that was all it needed to fight the cold.
The end of year holidays are over, and most of us have gotten into a rut of eating more than we need or want to eat. Also, January is a time to reset, to make plans for the coming year, and to start fresh. It’s a time to not only reset your mind, but also your body. And how better to do this than with a detox!
I am at home for the holidays and am enjoying the slow mornings and late breakfasts here at my mom’s house. One of these grey and gloomy mornings, I got up and felt like having a warm and indulgent breakfast, so I gathered a few ingredients and whipped up this gooey warm and creamy porridge.
It’s been a while since I published the last recipe for energy bites/bliss balls on this blog and I figured gingerbread flavor would be appropriate right now. These bites are packed with protein and perfect for a pre- or post-workout snack, or an afternoon bite with a cup of coffee.
It’s October! Fall has officially started, the temperatures have cooled off and I am writing this post from underneath a blanket on the couch, with a cup of hot tea in hand, a candle burning on the table and a dark & chilly evening unfolding outside.
