An autumn soulfood staple.
For me autumn is red cabbage season. Well, usually also winter is red cabbage season but I am more than happy to start this as soon as possible. Somehow red cabbage makes me happy: it’s beautyful colour brightens up an otherwise mostly dull season. I want to share my favorite recipe with you, that has been time tested and is loved by friends and family.

A crunchy, fatty, comforting treat
Ahh, it’s thursday and it’s time to plan your sunday roast! This time I suggest a nice pork belly roast (if your macros allow for it 😉 ).

And a nice crackling, so crunchy that you hear someone eating it even when you are in another room. What you need for this? Just a little time and some humble ingredients!

Easy peasy meal prep for even the most stressed cooks.
As temperatures get a little lower (which I am extremely happy about), and autumn peeking around the corner, I am in the mood for something different for breakfast. Something warming, comforting and hearty, keeping me satieted many hours. I like my easy cheesecake, but now I’m not cutting anymore and can afford to eat something different. However, even if you are cutting at the moment, this recipe could be for you: you just have to be smart about the cut of meat to use.

Szechuan inspired umami bomb.
I love Szechuan cuisine! There is a nice Szechuan restaurant in Vienna (Meister Xiao – go for it if you are in Vienna!) a couple of minutes away from us and they are serving gorgeous dishes. One of my favourites is mapo tofu: ground beef or pork, silky tofu, black beans and abundant spicy oil made from chili, szechuan pepper and broad bean paste. It’s served with fluffy, delicious, steamed rice. Guess what? It did not fit in my macros 😉 but we had similar ingredients at home and developed the following cut-friendly recipe adding also some more veggies. Give it a try, if you love spicy flavours as we do!

Traditionally it is combined with bacon and served as a main dish, but in Austria it is prepared with even more vegetables and therefore considered a side.We’ve combined both ways and created a macro-friendly one pot version of this popular dish. Check it out!

Solving the dilemma of hot summer days and the need for a perfect roast.
I love my sunday roast! I go to the butcher and let him select a nice cut of meat for me and on my way home I plan how I’m going to cook it. A few simple sides to go with it. Most of the time this will be roasted vegetables, since I am addicted to their simplicity and deliciousness. But in the summer times my enthusiasm for sunday roast comes to a halt: it is hot outside and the last thing I want to do is adding heat by roasting something for hours in the oven. But I have found a solution and you will love it!

Your first steps into sourdough baking.
I love a nice loaf of bread, and I bet you do too. And my client Viola, who asked me for this recipe surely does so. But bread got a bad rep over the last decade, and sadly it is true that bread isn’t especially beneficial for your health. First of all it is easy to overconsume: good bread is really tasty, not very satieting and very calorie dense. But that’s not a problem if you are diligent with your tracking. Even worse are the effects of several anti-nutrients found in high dosage in bread. But there is a way to make your bread healthier: good, old sourdough!
