Vegetarian, rich in protein and delicious.
What an incredible combination of ingredients. Originally, watermelon and feta (or similar salty, firm cheese) are popular in the Mediterranean area but I wanted to do something slightly different. Also, to be honest, I just felt to change things up and I had an open bottle of chili sauce, fresh coriander and juicy ginger at home. This is how this Asian variation was born and I am really happy with it. Give it a try!

Creamy, refreshing and macro friendly.
Summer is my least favourite season, yet it still has it’s perks, one of them being perfectly ripe and sweet tomatoes. They are so delicious that I somehow got the urge to turn them to an ice cream. Yet another experiment that worked out way better than I thought! Oh, and the macros are insane. Thank me later.

A mild, yet exciting curry of unusual origin.
Many people are afraid a curry is too hot for them and therefore dislike Indian cuisine. However, this massaman curry is comforting mild, but still excitingly fragrant and not at all boring. Indian spices collide with Thai ingredients, giving birth to a very special dish. Comforting, yet interesting. The kind of food that makes you a little sad once you ate the last portion. And the best of all, it’s really easy to make and can be prepared in large batches. Enjoy!

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!

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!

Eating more food to stay happy while losing fat.
The laws of thermodynamics are unforgiving. To lose body fat, we have to force our body to burn our own reserves to fuel our energy demands. This quickly devolves into “eating less of …” spiraling down to ridiculous serving sizes as you try to maintain weight loss. Hunger creeps up. Frustration levels rise. Adherence plummets. But we can counteract this by eating more! Eating more of the right stuff. How is this possisble? Read on!

An innocuous habit with big consequences.
Snacking. It’s just what we do, right? Well, at least that’s what the food industry wants us to believe. And while it is true that at the end of the day energy balance is pretty much the only thing that matters for fat loss and yes, you can fit in those junky snacks and still lose weight, doing so comes with a boatload of problems. So let me explain why snacking is probably the number one habit that is holding you back from attaining your body composition goals.
