Once again I prepared an impromptu dish and just as I’m about to tuck in I decide I should share it on the blog. Therefore this post isn’t picture heavy nor is it beautifully styled. But, it’s a real moment from my daily life which hopefully you will agree is far better! This cheeky cous cous salad is as a healthy vegetarian lunch option or a lightweight dinner that’s perfect during the summer months. Cous cous provides a good source of lean vegetarian protein, the grains swell up making this nice and filling and a good source of fiber. I added lot’s of complimenting flavours to make sure it’s satisfying and tasty. View Post
This is a super easy Thai curry recipe that we like to prepare at home whenever the weather is a bit cold or miserable and we need some cheering (or warming) up. Sorry that it’s just the one image in this post. Christian prepared this tasty looking dish during the week and as an after thought I decided to take a quick photo so I could share his recipe with you. Thanks to curry paste everyone can prepare an impressive tasting dish that’s full of exotic flavours. We pick up ours from the local Asian supermarket here in Germany but I used to buy the same ones in England also. For this mild dish we used a yellow Thai curry paste with chicken, sweet potato and chickpeas. View Post
A Modern Way To Eat by Anna Jones is my go-to cook book for healthy vegetarian (and some vegan) food recipes. Unlike many modern, healthy cook books this includes ingredients you can find at the local supermarket with dishes that are hearty enough to satisfy my hunger! And considering Jamie Oliver has given this his stamp of approval I knew I was onto a good thing when I received this as a gift. View Post
Sorry, pardon WHAT??? Yes, I did say eat your SPF just not the bottle of sunscreen that’s sitting on the bathroom shelf. Let me explain…..
Certain anti-inflammatory foods, high in antioxidants work as a natural SPF. UV exposure is the biggest cause of skin ageing, not to mention skin cancer. Using a daily SPF is a wise choice but why not take it a step further by eating foods that bolster skin’s natural defense against the sun. View Post
One of the things I love most about Germany is the mountains. My ideal living situation would be an apartment in London and a large house in the Bavarian Alps. When I get off the train at Oberstdorf the first thing that hits me is the fresh air. It’s the purest luft my lungs have ever known and they couldn’t be happier each time I arrive here.
This place is great all year round. It’s perfect for skiing in the Winter with a cable car that runs from the center of town up into the mountains. In the Spring and Summer you can enjoy the mountain views, waterfalls and valleys. You can go hiking, mountain biking or even rock climbing. The town of Oberstdorf is relatively small with pretty shops, restaurants. There are lot’s of small hotels or B&B’s plus cozy restaurants and pubs. In Germany the food is hearty with nice big portions. Places serve delicious comfort food during the Winter and huge tasty salads in the Summer. The best part is the beer. Before I moved to this country I wasn’t a beer drinker but the stuff is so good here it’s become my thing. So if you fancy leaving the nature to the animals you can find a cozy corner and get tipsy with your mates.
