Cheap, easy and delicious.
Easter is around the corner and I am excited! Not because of any religious meaning, but because there will be lamb. There has to be lamb, and I will take any excuse for cooking a proper lamb roast! This roast is so easy, you can barely call it cooking: cut some veggies, season the meat and put it into the oven. Then you wait. It’s called slowfood for a reason. You will be rewared with sweet, tender meat falling off the bone. So what are you waiting for, start roasting! Continue reading “Lamb Roast”
A Viennese classic made cut-friendly.
Paprika Hendl (“Hendl” is Austrian slang for chicken) is a typical Viennese dish rich in, not surprisingly, paprika, the dried and ground red bell peppers that were so popular due to the Austro-Hungarian empire. And paprika is still very popular, in certain parts of Austria you don’t have salt and pepper on the table, there is salt and paprika. Normally there are loads of fatty sour cream in this dish, making it not exactly a weightloss friendly dish, but I changed things up a little and it works beautifully. Give it a try!

An ode to unprocessed foods.
There are so many different diets out there, all of them claiming to be the single best solution. This lead to significant public confusion about nutrition because some of the diets suggest principles that are contrary to each other. What do you have to follow? What to believe? But there is one thing all successful diets implement directly or indirectly and that is avoiding ultra-processed food. And now we have scientific support for this principle!

Hot, spicy and protein rich.
Food during a weight loss phase doesn’t need to be boring or bland. I love a good, spicy, bold curry and I bet you will love it too. Tender chicken and butternut squash with a hot tomato based sauce make a tasty, calorie friendly dish for everyday. And it’s very easy to cook, just try it out and be amazed.

A tasty way to get your eggs in.
My relationship to eggs is difficult. There are egg dishes that are absolutely boring, almost tiresome to eat, and there are insanely interesting egg dishes. For me, tamagoyaki belongs to the later. A silky consistency, quite sweet but savoury at the same time. This is probably the best way to transform eggs into something exciting. Give it a try! Continue reading “Tamagoyaki”
And then forgetting about them.
Having goals is important, isn’t it? They give you something to work towards. They provide motivation and help you starting certain endeavours. But they also have a dark side. Stagnation. Plateaus. Frustration. Luckily there is a better way of approaching goals, so let’s get started! Continue reading “Setting Goals”
So, I heard you don’t have much time for cooking. No problem, I’ve got you covered! There aren’t a lot of recipes that allow you to prepare a mountain of protein while at the same time cooking up a healthy side dish (only stews are nearly as efficient). We combine chicken thighs with tasty veggies, bold spices and refreshing citrus fruits. The reward is crispy chicken skin, tender meat and delicious veggies for days.
