Apple crumble with marzipan is a dessert that everyone loves. No wonder! The combination of flavoursome apples and crunchy crumbels with marzipan is simply delicious. And super easy to prepare. All we need for it are 5 ingredients. And vanilla ice-cream of course! A hit at Christmas Eve!
Vanilla crescents belong to every Christmas season in Germany. Therefore every year I make dozens of baking trays with these delicious traditional Christmas cookies. The reason is grandma Gerda’s recipe. It is proven they are so delicious that noone can ever get enough of them! Till today I kept the secret of her recipe but now I will reveal it to you.
Detox Delight sounds as if detoxing is mere fun. You know what? It is! I like to detox a couple of times per year. But especially this one week during the cold season is especially important for me. As a prevention for Christmas. S that my immune system can handle all the upcoming sweets and all! My detox weeks always contain loads of healthy stuff, no alcohol and no sweets. And that’s really tasty! Because my fresh juices no only contain lots of minerals and vitamins. They are also yummy!
Workout out at home might cost quite an effort but there is no other place where we can do something for our body so easily! All we need is what each one of us brings along naturally: our own body weight. To make it a bit more thrilling, though, we can also use some aids. Although I don’t mean weights, skipping ropes or kettle bells! Much easier than that…
Super-foods are being hyped in the media. Supermarkets and health-food stores promote them as THE new thing to boost our health. But to tell you the truth, chia-seeds, Goji-berries and what not simply are expensive substitutes for regional products. And on top we can’t know the details about the manufacturing processes. Plus they damage our environment. So why look in the distance if the good things are just around the corner.
Working out as a working mum used to be a real challenge. Before I had kids I worked out regularly but as a working mum I often lack time for it. Therefore I started to integrate my kids into my workout. Here I will explain how this became a real kids play:
Plates for grown-ups with carbs and still losing weight? Yes, that’s possible! I was never really big but there were times when I had too many pounds on my hips. Then I tried all kinds of diets! EH (eat half), Hollywood-, Pineapple- or Atkins diet, Low Carb, High Protein and so on. For a few years I finally know how it works best to be slim without having to starve myself. I eat till I am satisfied! Now I am 46 and slimmer than ever. And with my kind of eating I helped others to become slim as well…
I admit that I was quite sceptical when I booked a canoe trip for myself, my husband and our two kids (4 and 9 years old). A mum I am friends with told me that it was totally chaotic when they went to try that out. We were absolute beginners as well. But I can tell you that much: it was great! But one thing at a time.
People approach me quite often how I work out. When I tell them that I run a lot but also lift weights many are surprised. Do weights cause bulky muscles so that us women look like guys? That’s at least the general opinion! But the truth about weight lifting is a different one.
I learned one thing: no matter what cup size gravity gets us all! We therefore definitely need the right sports bra so that the ups and downs while working out don’t support the sagging in a fatal way. But to find the right one is not that easy….
