If you want to change up your diet and start to eat maybe a little bit more healthier – breakfast is a good place to start. The first new breakfast meal I tried was oatmeal or oat porridge. I started with the instand oatmeal flakes but quickly changed to the more flavorful rolled oats and steel cut oats – which also have… Read more →

easy apple muffins

Easy apple muffins

It’s been a long long time since I’ve posted any new recipes. Not that I think that anyone is following me at this moment. But for those who wonder why, I’ve moved into a new house and with that house, an awesome new kitchen. These easy apple muffins are the first things I baked in my brand new oven. I didn’t… Read more →

raspberry and avocado smoothie ingredients

Raspberry avocado smoothie

With the exception of baking I’m pretty much a freestyler in the kitchen. I just check my fridge and pantry and whip something up with whatever I got. This goes for dinner, my pancakes in the morning and smoothies as well. Writing down a recipe for a smoothie feels a bit odd to me. But it’s good to have some… Read more →

Maca and chia power bar

Here we’re going to dive a little bit into the superfood madness. Because yes, maca and chia seeds are considered superfood by most.

Spelt crackers

Spelt and seed crackers

I don’t eat bread anymore for a while. I always felt like it drained more energy than gave me some. So I gave it up. But I do sometimes miss how easy it can be for lunch – topping a sandwich with all sorts of goodies. I think that’s why I like crackers so much. Especially the organic spelt and… Read more →

Green smoothie bowls

Green smoothie bowl

Green smoothies are a great way to eat more veggies and to get that extra vitamin boost. But oftentimes I gulp a whole load down in no time – looks good in that mason jar with straw, but I drink it way to fast that way. Result: feeling way too full and digestion not going too well. So now I slow things… Read more →
