Why I don’t practice intermittent fasting.

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…

Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers. Pt. 2

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…

Raw Almond Chocolate Brownies

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…

Memories of 2017

The end of the year has almost come.. time to take a look back. 2017 has been so different from what I thought it would be. At the end of 2016 I thought this new year is going to be MY year. That I would quit my job, spend the winter outside of Germany and so much more. But well, not really.. in fact, 2017 hasn’t been much different from 2016 and quite uneventful. No big changes happened – no travels, no new job, no new relationship,.. Anyway, I think every year shapes you and your life in a certain way.…

My 5-Day Juice Cleanse Experience

[Enthält Werbung/Contains Advertising]   I said goodbye to coffee, oatmeal, chocolate, nut butter, pancakes and all my other favourite foods for 5 days from 21th to 25th November because of a 5-day juice fast. For the fast I decided to use the juices from www.green-detox.de because I loved their products when researching for different companies. They offer a lot of different treatments. 1 day, 3 days, 5 days,.. and also with different products. I got my delivery on time as promised and felt very well supported during my fast. I chose the 5-day treatment with 4x 500ml green juice, 1x 250ml…

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.
