Dark Chocolate Smoothie

What if I told you that chocolate was the healthiest food in the world? Would you believe me? Because it’s true. It has iron, magnesium, copper, a ton of antioxidants, and even fiber. BUT… when I say chocolate I mean real, unprocessed, raw cacao. SAD (Standard American Diet) chocolate like what you would find in […]

German Pretzel Buns

If you have been following my Instagram or previous blog recipes, such as my German Mac and Cheese (Nudelauflauf), you can probably guess that I come from a German family.

Mexican Inspired Collard Breakfast Wraps

Twenty six days into my June Friendly Challenge, and things are going well. Every June, and every November, I generally challenge myself to some kind of health challenge, whether it’s to exercise more, or to abstain from refined sugar, or drink more water.

For 30 days, I’m following a whole foods plant-based diet, which I recommend to everyone. The evidence is compelling that it’s the ideal way of eating for everyone. For people that have not […]

Vegan Matar Paneer

I’m not an expert by any means in Indian cuisine, other than the fact that I LOVE eating it. I’ve been to India a few times, where I fully enjoyed authentic Indian food and became obsessed. The various spices and flavours are so unique and unlike any other food. I make Indian food quite often […]

Vegan Kaiserschmarrn – Scrambled Pancakes

What is Kaiserschmarrn? Scrambled pancakes? Say whaaaaat? Well, it’s a thing. If you’re from Germany/Austria, it’s likely that you have heard of Kaiserschmarrn (Emperor’s Scramble). It’s basically scrambled pancakes with raisins, topped with a sprinkle of icing sugar, and enjoyed with canned peaches. It’s the ultimate comfort food for any German and SO SO GOOD. […]

And second, they are PLANT-BASED GINGER MOLASSES COOKIES. These cookies are free from dairy and eggs, which have no place in baking […]
