Last month I decided to go on a therapeutic fast (“Heilfasten” in German). I always wanted to do a real fast, just as an experiment and because I know there are true health benefits coming with it. I had done two 3-day juice fasts in the past but I feel they were not ideal as I constantly felt hungry because of all that fruit sugar spiking my blood sugar levels all the time. Now that I had just come back from Australia I felt this was the right time to take it slow, go inwards and to support the process… Read More »My Fasting Experience
1) Before anything else I’m beyond grateful for my partner and all the love and support he shows me and the love I feel within myself. It’s not always been easy with our situation and it probably won’t get any easier in the future but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love the little life I have with him.. with him and the dogs. <3 And not to forget about his wonderful family that welcomed me with open arms as if I’d always been part of to the family. 2) I’m also grateful for my own parents and… Read More »9 things I’m grateful for in 2019.
First of all: This will probably be the longest blogpost I’ve ever written but please make sure to read it all if you want to understand where I’m coming from. After you’ve done that feel free to judge me or unfollow me on social media if you still feel like doing so. Thank you. Oh and don’t worry, this is not the next “my vegan diet made me sick that’s why I quit” kind of story and it also has nothing to do with other vegans who’ve recently quit veganism but with all the personal changes I went through the… Read More »Why I ditched the vegan label.
A few months ago I talked about why I’m not practicing intermittent fasting. In case you wanna read about this first, you can find the blogpost here. However, sometimes your eating habits change because of your current life situation or just because you choose to try something new. So actually right now I’m kinda practicing intermittent fasting by accident, just that it’s not breakfast I leave out but dinner. Before you judge and say it’s unhealthy, I only do it to lose weight etc. – wrong, that’s not the case at all. First of all: I actually never got the… Read More »Intermittent Fasting? Diet Update.
[Werbung / Advertisement] After spending the past 3 months in Canggu, Bali, I would like to share with you the places I’ve eaten at to give you some ideas about where to go for food if you’re vegan and plan on visiting Bali. I also got inspired by others who shared their experiences with vegan cafés and restaurants while staying in Bali. I think it’s super helpful and I’m always grateful to find some recommendations when travelling to a new place. Just so you know: To most of the more “fancy” cafés and restaurants I got invited but not to… Read More »Bali: Vegan & Vegan-Friendly Café/Restaurant Recommendations
Someone asked me about my thoughts on intermittent fasting so I’m gonna share them with you. First of all: Just because I do not practice what’s typically understood under the term “intermittent fasting” does not mean that you shouldn’t do it. Everyone is different, it may work super well for you. It also depends on what situation you are in. What time you get up, go to bed, what job you are in, where you live etc. So why do I not practice intermittent fasting? 1. I LOVE breakfast, I always did. It’s truly something I look forward to in the… Read More »Why I don’t practice intermittent fasting.
This week I asked you to leave me some questions for a Q&A here on my blog. So here are my answers to your questions: 1. What are you most excited about now that you quit your job? You would probably think of something like “travelling, finding my dream job,..” but no. Actually for me the most exciting thing is to have the whole day for myself, to wake up thinking “Ok, so what am I gonna do today?”, to be able to go for a run when the weather is good, to say yes to events and meeting people just… Read More »Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers.

It’s the weekend – time for a yummie chocolatey treat! <3 I usually don’t really create recipes like this one but I thought I’d just give it a go. I know that in general the basic ingredient for raw brownies is dates.. or well, at least I think so. Correct me if I’m wrong. So I played it safe and didn’t go crazy with this recipe. I never use complicated recipes myself as I’m way too lazy for those, so why would I make something complicated myself anyway? You will need.. Brownies 300g dates 200g grounded almonds 3 tbsp cacao… Read More »Raw Almond Chocolate Brownies
