A classic with a little twist.
If you need a hug from inside, you should definitely try zabaglione. Its silky texture made from egg yolks beaten over a bain marie with a little bit of sugar and wine make you instantaneously happy. Best eaten when it is cold and grey outside, it is an incredibly simple and fast dessert.

The perfect way to fall in love with bitterness again.
Most of us aren’t used to the bitter notes some vegetables like radicchio bring to the table. In a world full of sweet or salty treats, bitterness has been abandoned. Using a little kitchen magic, we take the edges off the bitterness and transform it into a crowd-pleasing side dish that goes with pretty much any meat or even fish. An Italian classic with a little Asian twist. Give it a try!

A science based guideline.
“Boost your immune system with this weird trick!” This and similar nonsense can be found everywhere. But is it even possible to boost your immune system? And if so, is it even desirable? What supplements do you need to take? Is there even any value in doing so? Does body composition alter immunity? A lot of questions and I tried my best to answer them all. Spoiler: working on diet quality is always king.

Pure luxury for special occasions.
Saying this is a cookie is almost an insult. This is pure luxury. A single piece of vanilla shortbread takes a simple cup of tea and elevates it to a proper tea time. We choose best ingredients, so this is something special, reserved for special occasions or special people. I’m sure you’ll like it.

Cooking up a festive dinner never has been easier.
We’ve made a festive bird roast by accident. Almost a full-scale Thanksgiving dinner. How is it possible to accidentally cook a feast? Well, it all starts with me finding a very special bird perfect for roasting. Then I watch an episode of Jamie Oliver’s Christmas feasts, get inspired, improvise a little and boom, here we are. Even though there are many components, everything is child’s play to prepare. And the result is worth the effort ten times. Give it a try!

What it is and who should or shouldn’t do it.
Intuitive eating is sometimes frowned upon in the fitness industry, with counting macros being the “superior” way to go. Most of the time intuitive eating is misunderstood though. It’s more to it than “just eat until you are full” and choosing foods based upon “what your body tells you”, because for most people this would mean bingeing on pizza and ice cream until they can’t walk anymore. Intuitive eating is a tool to develop a better feeling for hunger, satiety and health in general. How is it done? Read on!

A quick and simple fix for your carb cravings.
It’s hard to come up with things that beat a fresh, homemade bread. The smell alone is worth it. As much as I like a good sourdough bread, sometimes you need a quick fix. Less time commitment, but still a perfect loaf. Give this classic a try, it needs no kneading and no time to rise.

Giving a realistic view on what’s ahead.
Everybody thinks they know what to expect when starting a diet, yet people still are relatively unaware what truly is ahead of them.

Because in preparation lies the key to success!

Fast, healthy and delicious.
Salmon is one of my favourite fishes, healthy, tasty and easy to prepare. We get crunchy skin and incredible soft, pink flesh. Glazed with soy sauce and mirin for an extra punch and a refreshing cucumber salad to go with it. The best of it is that it is cooked in about ten minutes and you only need one pan and one bowl!
