I’m always a bit sad when fall arrives, because summer is my favorite season. But then I remind myself of all the good things that fall brings: colored leaves, roasted chestnuts, the cozy layered fashion, dark lipstick, and last but not least Pumpkin Spice Latte. Since Starbucks introduced this drink back in 2003, it has become one of the most popular seasonal beverages. I created this recipe to have a healthier and cheaper alternative to the original one – with real pumpkin, less calories and all natural ingredients. So snuggle in your onesie, make yourself a cup, turn on Netflix and enjoy fall season! Continue reading
Hello lovelies! As fall is approaching and the temperatures are sinking, I crave homemade comfort food even more. This week’s recipe is a colorful combination of savory roasted eggplants and flavorsome spiced rice inspired by the yummy ingredients used in the oriental cuisine.
Dear friends, please be aware that the following recipe contains a shit load of sugar, fat and chocolate. Basically all the good stuff. As you may have guessed, this is not a healthy recipe. I repeat: THIS IS NOT A HEALTHY RECIPE. Common side effects may include overeating, prolonged cheat days and a serious chocolate addiction – which I won’t be held responsible for. Please enjoy these muffins at your own risk and in reasonable amounts. Also, please share them with your friends and family. They will love you forever. You’re welcome.
Do you like the combination of sweet and salty? Do you think Pretzel M&M’s are one of mankind’s most ingenious inventions? I see we’ll get along perfectly 😉 If you also prefer your food healthy and dairy-free, you’ll love this recipe. It’s the perfect combo of sweet, salty, crunchy and creamy and my favorite treat this summer.
If you’re trying to sneak in more veggies into your diet, this recipe is for you. The subtle sweetness of the bell peppers combined with the hearty meat and the oriental seasoned rice make the perfect dinner treat. Serve it with a leafy salad for some extra vitamines or enjoy them as they are.
One of my favorite dishes I’ve encountered on my travels is the poké bowl. It’s a traditional Hawaiian dish usually consisting of rice, veggies and seasoned raw fish. You can get it pretty much anywhere if you happen to be in Hawaii (lucky you!). If not, go ahead and make your own. This recipe is packed with some of my favorite ingredients: salmon, mango and avocado. If you thought this triple threat makes great sushi rolls, wait until you taste this kickass bowl.
With Easter around the corner I wanted to try something fun. I’ve seen these cute bunny pancakes all over Pinterest and wanted to make my own version. My goal was to make the pancakes as healthy as possible in order to add some vitamins and fibres to my current chocolate-heavy diet. Having the best chocolate in the world, most Swiss people – me included – spend Easter time living off chocolate. So this recipe goes out to everyone with a sweet tooth trying to live healthy nevertheless. The struggle is real.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Unfortunately I don’t always have the time to prepare a smoothie or muesli and sit down to eat. These breakfast cookies are perfect for the busy days. They’re packed with healthy ingredients, vegan and sooo delicious. The cookies will only take about 20 minutes to make. You can even make them ahead of time and eat them throughout the week. After all, you’ll need the vitamins and fibres to be the awesome person you are and kick ass. And cookies for breakfast? Definitely for winners! Continue reading
The açai bowl is not only the favorite breakfast treat of fitness gurus and hipsters, it’s also extremely yummie and healthy. The açai berry (pronounced a-sah-ee) is one of the best known sources of antioxidants which fight the free radicals within the body. In combination with oats, fruit and seeds it’s the perfect start in your day providing you with a good load of protein, fiber, Omega-3 essential fatty acids, magnesium and other important nutrients to keep you fit and full.
The traditional açai bowl is made with frozen fruit or ice which can be a bit hardcore in the morning (especially for those with sensitive teeth). That’s why I’ve come up with an unfrozen variation (aka smoothie bowl).
