Vegetable stew

I think this stew is so delish! The combination of vegetables is so tasty and it’s also super nutritious and filling… If I know I have busy day coming up, I’ll make a double batch so that I can enjoy the leftovers the next day. And, to be honest, it actually tastes even better after a night in the fridge… Win...

Fresh fall salad

You can eat Brussels sprouts raw, too! And if you’re going to try them raw, I prefer them grated… This is what prompted me to try out this tasty bowl full of other fall ingredients and, I have to say, it turned out pretty good!

Asparagus

Asparagus is high in minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium and zinc. It also contains vitamins K, C, B and folic acid. It has a diuretic effect and stimulates kidney function. And it gets better: due to its high vitamin E content, it is one of the most aphrodisiac foods available. Nice! This is my favorite... Read more

Creamy tomato soup

I didn’t eat much tomato soup as a kid. My parents would usually make vegetable or ox-tail soup. And when I was at university, I used to eat canned soup (haha), which is, of course, much less tasty. But now that I know how to make soup that tastes this yummy, I eat it all the time – especially when I have company!... Read more

Pumpkin quinoa curry

I’m always in for a party. Especially when there is dance music! Maybe you think that, me as a #powerfoodie, I always reject any alcoholic drinks or bites. Nothing could be further than the truth.

Pizza

I have guilty pleasures… Sometimes I use gel polish on my nails (which isn’t very good for your nails it seems) and I can’t deny that I still enjoy dancing, half-naked, in front of the mirror to the Backstreet Boys. But to be honest, I don’t really have any weird or bad habits related to food. Because, guess... Read more
