In today’s post I’m talking all things India, where I spent the last month doing my yoga teacher training. So, here’s a little throwback, and I am also introducing you to the basics of Ayurveda. There’s an Ayurvedic breakfast recipe for you, too – all in collaboration with Valensina!

Sunday baking: Vegan banana peanut butter bread

Posted in: Breakfast, Food, Sweet stuff · 14 October 2017

Good morning Sunday, let’s make this one a lazy one – with a delicious breakfast in bed and possibly an autumnal walk in the nature later today. How does a vegan banana peanut butter bread sound for breakfast? It’s quick and easy to make, and doesn’t require many ingredients. Enjoy!

Weekend breakfast: Vegan coconut protein pancakes with blueberry compote

Posted in: Breakfast, Food · 9 September 2017

Whenever I don’t feel like porridge or muesli in the morning, I’m particularly tired, it’s raining cats and dogs, I’m starving or I just want to take the time to enjoy a long breakfast, I tend to bake a huge stack of pancakes – and instantly turn into the happiest person on the planet. I collaborated with Veganz to develop a vegan pancake recipe for you and was impressed by how delicious they turned out! On the blog today: deliciously fluffy and tasteful vegan coconut protein pancakes with blueberry compote.

Support your local craftsmen: pottery by Hartmud (and some words on my breakfast routine)

Posted in: Breakfast, Food, Frankfurt, Places · 23 May 2017

A few weeks ago I got to know Jérôme and Isa from the art collection Hartmud, who creates beautiful handmade ceramics in their Frankfurt-based studio. I am introducing you to some of their items on the blog today, and am also talking about granola – certainly one of the best things out there, besides avocado and poached eggs, of course!

Lemon “quark“ pancakes with rhubarb orange compote

Posted in: Breakfast, Food · 14 March 2017

Back in Germany I can’t help but being particularly happy about a few things, three of them being bread, cheese – and “quark“. I can’t get enough of the fat-free protein bomb and made a stack of deliciously fluffy pancakes with it on the weekend. Together with this year’s first rhubarb it’s been a breakfast for champions! Here’s a new recipe for you today: lemon “quark“ pancakes with rhubarb orange compote!

Throwback to a week in the mountains – and homemade “kaiserschmarrn“ with apple compote

Posted in: Breakfast, Food, Sweet stuff · 10 January 2017

Hi 2017! Hi new plans, challenges, resolutions and energy! I spent New Year’s Eve in the mountains, in Tyrol in Austria, where the sun shined bright, the sky couldn’t have been any bluer and the fresh air cleared out the head entirely high up in 3,000 metres. I’m back in London now, but extend the holiday feeling as much as I can let’s indulge in some amazing Austrian food: Birchermüesli and homemade “kaiserschmarrn“ with apple compote. Good morning!
