Halloween Breakfast – Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl

Okay, to be honest.. I don’t even like Halloween. However, I truly believe pumpkin smoothie bowls make a perfect Halloween breakfast. I mean, what else would you wanna eat on Halloween other than pumpkin? See? And since I’ve been obsessed with my pumpkin smoothie bowls this whole month of October, I thought I might as well share how I make it with you. I don’t measure out my ingredients when making a smoothie as I believe it’s always best to experiment a little to get the perfect taste and texture. Anyway, here’s how to make it: You will need: 2-3…

Yay, it’s autumn! <3 The time of the year for books, tea, cuddly socks, movie nights, walks through the colorful forest, pumpkin, and for cozy mornings with a good warm breakfast.

Oil Pulling – how & why?

Oil pulling has become a big trend recently and I’ve been doing it for about a year now as well – it’s actually one of the best routines I’ve added to my daily life. So, what is this oil pulling and why is it beneficial for your health? How to do it: Do it first thing in the morning, before drinking, eating or brushing your teeth. Take about 1tbsp of oil into your mouth. You can use any organic cold-pressed oil but it’s said that coconut oil is the most effective and I haven’t tried any other oils. Tbh the…

The worst is yet to.. probably not come.

85% of what we worry about never happens.. Five hundred years ago, Michel de Montaigne said: “My life has been filled with terrible misfortune; most of which never happened.” I’ve just read an article sharing this percentage information found out in studies. And I mean, yes.. I can totally imagine this to be true. How often do we imagine worst-case scenarios in our head that in the end never occur? At least I do, that’s one of my main struggles and the reason I worry so much all the time. I worry about things that will probably never happen! Anyway,…

Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers.

I asked you to ask me some questions on Instagram a while ago and actually got quite a few.. I’m going to answer them in German and English as I got questions in both languages. Oh and by the way, before I start: I also have a Tumblr account (plantifulalexandra) so there is always the option to ask me something there, even anonymously. So, let’s start answering.. Why and why did you start with Instagram? I actually scrolled down to the start of my account for this: I started in May 2015. And why? Well, I’ve been looking through Instagram already for…

My Favourite Smoothie Recipes

I have never really been into smoothie bowls or smoothies. I had a smoothie here and there in the past but I wasn’t the biggest fan to be honest. I rather had a big bowl of oatmeal or nicecream than a big smoothie bowl. As I somehow, really don’t know why, developed a love for smoothie bowls this winter, I decided to share with you my favourite smoothie combos. They are all incredibly easy and you probably laugh when reading the “recipe” but as I often get asked for recipes, I decided to share them anyway. Note: of course you can…

What to love about winter and how to stay positive & healthy during this season.

It’s beginning to look a lot like christmas..❄️⛄ I know, many people don’t like winter and really struggle with staying happy and positive. Some people get seriously depressed during that time. I’m a person that loves winter (not driving through snow with my car though..). There are a lot of things to love about christmas time and winter time in general. However, not gonna lie – I often struggle with keeping a positive mindset during this cold and dark season as well. So let me share with you a few things that help me to cheer up and that make…

Vegan DIY Advent Calendar

  [English Below] Ich dachte, ich schreibe diesen Beitrag mal auch auf Deutsch, da es sich ohnehin hauptsächlich um deutsche Produkte handelt, die ich für den Adventskalender benutzt habe und das daher für Leute aus Deutschland vermutlich doch relevanter ist. Ich wollte gerne einen Adventskalender für meine Eltern füllen, was sich vegan doch gar nicht so einfach gestaltet, da die meisten kleinen Weihnachtssüßigkeiten von den gängigen Marken eher nicht vegan sind. Meine Eltern leben zwar nicht vegan, aber natürlich möchte ich mit meinem Geld dennoch ungern nicht-vegane Produkte unterstützen. Ich habe mich daher auf die Suche nach kleinen Dingen gemacht,…
