Espresso pecan muffins with maple syrup - now on the blog (link in bio). 👆 Check out this super easy recipe using mostly pantry basics.

Hope you're all enjoying the holidays! We've already soaked in a lot of sunshine on our family boat trip on Friday and had a cozy bonfire with our village friends last night. Now it's time to prepare brunch - I'm making my favourite silken tofu, berry & lemon bowls. 😊

Warm #chaga porridge to start the day! Recently I've been experimenting a lot with #adaptogens. In case you've never heard of them or always wondered: adaptogens are substances naturally occurring in plants that can help balance, restore and protect your mind & body. They are believed to be helpful against fatigue and can make you cope better with stress.

Chaga - a mushroom that grows on birch trees - is said to be powerful in boosting immunity, in particular. So perfect for this still not very spring-like weather, don't you think? Would you be interested in a more elaborate blog post on this topic? Let me know in the comments. 😊

_____________________________

Ingredients (serves 1): 1 tsp coconut oil, 1/2 cup mixed grain flakes (I used oat, rye, spelt & barley), 1 tsp ground flax seeds, 1 cup plant milk, 1 tsp chaga powder (I used @pilzewohlrab), 1/2 tsp cinnamon, pinch of sea salt, 1/2 mashed banana

Toppings: apple & banana slices, hemp hearts, pumpkin seed butter, #beepollen, walnuts, ground caramelised hemp & cinnamon

Method: Heat the coconut oil in a small pot, add the grain flakes and spices. Fry over medium heat until fragrant. Add milk and remaining ingredients and simmer for 5 mins. Turn off the heat and leave for another 5 mins with the lid on. Serve with your favourite toppings.

Good morning & happy weekend everyone! Here's to my new kitchen and the first green smoothie bowl that was made in it. 💚 I couldn't be happier about finally having a well organised space to go creative again. And a real countertop with a proper height that's not shaky haha!

Ingredients: 4-5 curly kale leaves, 1 frozen banana, 1 small orange, 2cm piece of fresh ginger, 2 tbsp oat flakes, 1 kiwi, 2-3 tbsp coconut cream, 2 tbsp of mixed sprouted seeds (flax, hemp, sunflower) + wheatgrass + probiotics

Toppings: orange filets, pomegranate jewels, marigold petals, bee pollen, puffed quinoa

Beetroot smoothie bowl to start the week! ❤ The reason I don't post more often at the moment is that ever since I moved into this apartment I've been working with a tiny and also super minimally equipped kitchen with no countertop space at all! This makes arranging & decorating food - even the simplest bowls - a little difficult. And my limited workspace turns into a huge mess within seconds. 😂 Luckily in two more weeks this will change so please bear with me. 🙏

Ingredients: 2 small cooked beets, 1 small raw carrot, 1 small frozen banana, 1/2 orange, 1 tbsp oats, 2 cm piece of fresh ginger, 1 tsp maca powder, a little oat milk to blend

Toppings: orange filets, pomegranate, homemade walnut butter, bee pollen, hemp hearts & dried hollyhock petals

Currently on my way to @biofachvivaness - largest organic trade show in the world - with my dear Ary @valises_et_gourmandises. We're ready to explore new products. Make sure to follow my stories!

Grateful for this already really wonderful week celebrating the birthday of Melli @miss.honeypenny together with Annelina @food_without_regrets, Yoli @yolcsita_eats, Anna @anna.culina and my dear @aniahimsa who actually came all the way from Zurich for this "reunion of the foodies". 😊

Looking forward to meeting more of you today at the fair, especially part of our Amsterdam crew, Uschi @dukkah_queen & Sophie @fitsophiee_ as well as Corinna @schuesselglueck. Let me know in case you're there too.
__________________________

In this really quickly thrown together smoothie bowl I put 1 bunch of read #dandelion (thus the not so appealing colour), 1/2 zucchini, 1 small pear, 1/2 frozen banana, a small bunch of fresh mint, 1 tsp #maca powder and spelt milk. Topped with more fruit, #hemphearts, #beepollen & mint.

Hello there... long time no see. 🙂 Here's a warming & comforting golden #tsampa porridge. I used a mix from @tsampafood that contains toasted barley (aka tsampa), oats & millet... #notsponsered by the way, just in love with the product. 💛

I really like the nutty flavour and find that it keeps me full for quite a long time. Barley is an ancient grain that's been forgotten by most people (mainly used for beer & whisky making these days). In Tibet, where the toasted grain is often prepared with black tea & butter, it has a long tradition as a breakfast item. It's known for its benefits regarding blood sugar & cholesterol levels.

Have you tried tsampa yet? How do you like to prepare it? Would you like to read more about it on my blog? Let me know in the comments. 👇
_____________________________

In this version I used: 1/2 cup tsampa muesli mix, 1 cup millet milk, 1 tsp coconut oil, 1 tsp #turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cardamom, pinch of black pepper (to boost bioavailability of curcumin), 1/2 mashed banana, 1/2 orange (chopped) --> brought to the boil and simmered for approx. 5 mins, stirring constantly.

Toppings include orange, banana & kiwi slices, hemp hearts, pumpkin seed butter (my new addiction 😅), dried barberries & puffed quinoa.

Just a quick hello from my kitchen on this Saturday morning! 🙋🏼 I made spinach & pumpkin smoothie bowls - what a treat after endless days of eating muesli. Really hope everyone is fine!

Being on Instagram is not for me at the moment so please don't feel neglected if I'm not engaging with you. It doesn't mean I don't wanna stay in touch with all you lovely souls. ❤ I hope you understand. 🙏 I'll be back at some point and hope to still find some of you waiting here when I do! Much love, Caro

Ingredients (serves 2 as a snack or one hungry): 1 frozen banana, 1 handful baby spinach, 1 large persimmon, 3 tbsp pumpkin puree (I used homemade hokkaido puree), small piece of ginger, 1 tsp gingerbread spice, oat milk to blend

Cozy morning at home with the family, sharing a big green smoothie bowl with my mum. 💚 After a pretty annoying & stressful week I just needed to head straight home yesterday. Real life has been tough and messy lately which is why I'm pretty much absent from Instagram these days. I hope you guys understand. Trying to find some piece and quiet in my mind - social media isn't exactly being helpful.

Ingredients: 1 frozen banana, 2 large handfuls fresh baby spinach, a handful of pomelo pieces, 1/2 avocado (my mum keeps buying for me even though I told her not to, so may as well use it 🙈), 2 mandarins

Toppings: gorgeous figs, grapes, physalis, dried mulberries, hemp hearts, cacao nibs, bee pollen, almond butter
