I’m a true smoothie-lover. Most of the time I make green smoothies because I use every opportunity to incorporate more healthy greens into my diet. But this one particular morning we had some coconut milk, apple sauce and blueberries left over and I ended up with the best smoothie I’ve ever made. I kid you not. I was super impressed, so I had to share the recipe! 🙂
I know, I know. Christmas is over… BUT winter is not and I think winter is gingerbread season! It just got really cold here in Germany and I am more than ever craving those hot chai teas and warm breakfast pancakes!
Okay friends, here comes a classic Franconian dish, which I used to love before going vegan. Franconia, the part of Germany I am from, is a region in the north of Bavaria (which is in the south of Germany). “Sauerbraten” is a hearty and opulent meal, which you would eat on Sundays or holidays like Christmas.
When I think of prunes, I always have to think of Louis Litt from the show ‘Suits’ because he likes to drink his “prunies”. This warming winter breakfast incorporates prunes in a different way, but I’m sure Louis would enjoy it equally!
There is something about Indian food that I find extremely comforting. Just having a big pot of warm curry with rice and some naan makes me pretty happy, especially on these colder days. We have had about a week of winter with snow & colder temperatures here in Germany, but it has gone back to fall now with about 8°C and rain.
