Good morning everyone! How pretty are my chioggia beets? 😍💕 I'm always mesmerised by the beauty one can find in nature.

I'm still harvesting beautiful produce in my garden. At the moment I got these beautiful beets, pak choi, rainbow chard, kale, potatoes, leeks and Asian salad greens.

The return to winter time has me waking up even earlier than usual so the extra hour gives me time to post again. 🙂 I hate that it's gonna get dark an hour earlier from now on. For food photography that means you're on an even more limited schedule. I'm definitely team summer time all year long! What do you think about the switch twice a year? Is it time to get rid of it?

Hi peeps! Made this harvest smoothie bowl a little while ago when we still had local blueberries but other than that it's still pretty seasonal.

I used frozen zucchini for the base, added fresh kale, beetroot greens (don't toss them - the younger leaves are perfect for smoothies or salads, larger ones taste great sauteed), a small bunch of parsley, 1/2 frozen banana, some coyo for creaminess and the zest & juice of 1/2 organic lemon.

Toppings include peach & blueberries, the prettiest beetroot leaves, #beepollen, #cacaonibs, puffed amaranth, dried cornflower blossoms and more coyo.

The days may still be sunny but mornings are cold, so colorful smoothie bowls have given way for more autumnal porridge bowls!

This one here is one of my latest obsessions: plum cinnamon chaga porridge with local walnuts, topped with seasonal goodness!

My basic recipe goes as follows: 1/2 cup grain flakes (sometimes just plain oats, sometimes a mix of oats, spelt, barley & rye, sometimes millet) + 1 tsp crushed flax seeds, a small handful of roughly chopped nuts, small mashed banana, pinch of salt.

Optional add-ins: freshly grated ginger (a must, if you ask me), turmeric and/or apple, more spices (e.g. cardamom, nutmeg), cacao, mushroom powders (chaga, reishi etc.), dried fruit.

Then add 1 cup liquids (I usually use 1/2 plant milk and 1/2 water, use coconut cream for an even richer porridge) and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 mins constantly stirring, then turn off the heat and leave to rest (lid on) for another 5 mins while preparing your toppings.

For toppings I used banana slices, fresh figs, more plums, a good dollop of @indigo_herbs hemp butter [pr-sample], bee pollen, @original_beans cacao nibs, puffed quinoa, hemp hearts and dried cornflower blossoms.

Happy FriYay everyone! 🌞 The weekend is close, summer is back - so how about some delicious boozy popsicles?

They're super easy to make! All you need is a nice dry gin, some tonic water and cucumber slices.

[Werbung / Ad, unpaid] I used a fantastic gin called GINseng from @dr.jaglas - that's a small fine spirits start-up run by my dear friend Christina. She has an apothecary background and uses botanicals of the highest medicinal quality only. Hence the name & the gorgeous brown bottles. (I collect those as decoration, by the way.) The product design is so incredibly beautiful - it's easily one of the most special packagings I've ever come across. 😍 To me a bottle of GINseng is the perfect gift for friends who like things out of the ordinary. 🎁 In the post images you can see the miniature bottle but check @dr.jaglas Instagram for a full picture.

Plums galore! I just finished another bowl of these beauties from our trees in the family garden. Love using them in my porridge together with cinnamon & walnuts (also from our garden). But they're also great for baking, making chutneys etc.

Luckily my family has been keeping our tradition to make plum butter / jam ("Pflaumenmus") every year. We use large wood-fired cauldrons where the plums reduce down for hours and hours, no sugar or additives whatsoever!

This year our trees were heavy with enormous amounts of fruit so we got new plum butter to last us forever - and enjoy all year around. I also froze a few bags of fresh plums to use in smoothies. What's your favorite plum recipe?

What are your favorite meals for busy weeks? Currently I'm obsessed with potato salad made from my very own harvest with @meineernte.de [Werbung / Ad]. Sometimes I just make it very simple using diced apples, onions & pickles with a creamy dressing (a family favourite). For this bowl here, I threw together a bunch of farmer's market goodies such as fresh corn, heirloom tomatoes, radishes, cucumber, random salad greens from my garden and onion rings.

The dressing is made with vegan sour cream (I love the unpasteurised one from @soyana_lebensmittel*), dijon mustard, white balsamic vinegar, a little miso paste (@mimiferments*), loads of fresh dill, a little extra virgin olive oil, salt & pepper. [* Werbung / ad, paid for the products myself.]

Coffee & cake time on a Sunday - one of those well-kept traditions in my family. ☕🍰❤ "Kaffee und Kuchen“ always at 3pm. 😊 And this vegan tahini-fig-walnut banana bread would be the perfect treat!

I'm currently on the train to Zurich (8 hours but with a clear conscience this time 🌍) and would love to have some of this bread! Unfortunately, I forgot the slices I put aside for this trip in my freezer. 😅 But no need to worry! As soon as I arrive I'll be meeting my dear Anina @aniahimsa for dinner so I'm sure I'll go to bed well-fed.

On another note, it's getting colder and I'm in full-on autumn mode. 🍁🍂🍃 Figs, plums, walnuts, warming porridge, hot tea and soothing milks, enjoyed all cuddled up under a big blanket, reading a book. Who's with me?

Hey guys, I'm back from my road trip with Ary @valises_et_gourmandises and I am so glad we decided to explore an area close to Berlin instead of traveling abroad. Make sure to check my stories for pics & more details.

One day we were trying to find a workshop in a small village - instead we came across a little stall with buckets full of apples & some juice bottles with a little cash box on the side to leave some money in exchange for the produce - which we did. We continued walking around for a bit.

On our way back to the car a friendly warm-hearted lady greeted us. Uschi - who turned out to be the owner of the apple trees - lives in the house across the street decorated with hundreds of bells. She & her husband collect bells, organs & harmonicas and also work in environmental protection. We chatted for a bit, then she sent us off to another village where a friend of hers manages a juice press (Mosterei). Locals bring their apples, pears & quinces and take home delicious fresh juice in exchange.

We bought a few bottles of juice and some apple wine to enjoy that evening back in our cottage. Definitely one of sweetest memories of our trip - and one I'll always cherish.

Saturday = market day! 💚 So here's today's #plasticfree haul: a gorgeous #sourdough spelt baguette, ginormous #yellowpeaches (I've never come across larger specimens in my life 😂), the prettiest red lamb's lettuce (current salad crush), the sweetest apricots, organic #smokedtofu (top one's wild herbs, bottom one is chorizo-flavoured), a local cucumber, figs (actually bought them yesterday at the Turkish market - couldn't resist the offer) and the tastiest baby #heirloomtomatoes.

Most of these goodies will be travelling to the countryside with me tomorrow. I'm leaving for a short #socialmediadetox trip to Brandenburg (the state surrounding my beloved capital). I'm planning on using an actual map for navigation, visiting a monastery, going to a classical concert, swimming in one of the clearest sweetwater lakes, visiting an organic farm... Don't expect any stories as I'll be turning my phone off. Looking forward to this so so much!

Mexican-inspired dinner bowl with black beans, summer veggies & greens and a super easy fresh cilantro dip. Simply enjoying the peak season for most produce right now. 😊 Who's with me?

In the bowl I've got: finely sliced green batavia, cucumber slices & steamed green beans (all from my own #urbangarden & the family garden), cooked #blackbeans, #freshcorn from the cob, #coeurdeboeuf tomatoes (from a friendly gardening neighbour), red onion rings, radishes and red batavia (both from my own plot). For the cilantro dip I blitzed: 1/2 small raw zucchini, some cashew yogurt, a bunch of fresh cilantro, freshly ground cumin, a touch of #habanero chili paste & a squeeze of lime.

33°C and the temperature is still going up...🔥🌡🔥 How are you guys surviving this heat wave? Green nicecream is the way to go, if you ask me. 💚😊 Made with just a little bit of banana and lots of zucchini & greens from the family garden.

Ingredients: 1/2 frozen banana, 1 small frozen zucchini, 1/2 leftover avocado that I found in the fridge, small bunch of parsley, a handful of fresh mint leaves, squeeze of lime, a little plant milk to blend (frozen peas would have been great in this, too 😉) Toppings: strawberries, hemp hearts, cacao nibs, bee pollen, puffed quinoa, more mint leaves

Espresso Pecannuss Muffins

Hat das Jahr nicht eigentlich gerade erst angefangen? Und doch steht Ostern schon wieder vor der Tür. Für mich ist die Osterzeit immer eine sehr schöne Zeit, die ich mit meiner Familie in Brandenburg verbringe. Und da darf die ein oder andere Süßigkeit natürlich nicht fehlen. Darum habe ich am letzten Wochenende diese Espresso Pecannuss…

Dinkel-Pancakes mit Erdbeersauce

Einen wunderschönen Sonntagmorgen euch allen! Endlich ist etwas von Sommer zu spüren. Da schmecken heimische Schätze wie z.B. Erdbeeren gleich doppelt so gut. Wie wäre es also mit Dinkel-Pancakes und einer leckeren Sauce aus frischen Erdbeeren zum Frühstück? Klingt gut? Ist auch super schnell gemacht! Ganz im Sinne guten Vorankommens mit meiner Masterarbeit hier also…

Erdbeer-Avocado Smoothie

Und wie angekündigt geht es weiter mit schnellen und gleichzeitig super leckeren, sättigenden Frühstücksideen, die ganz viel Energie am Morgen geben. Heute in trinkbarer Form. Seit ich in Kenia war, liebe ich Avocados an meinen Smoothies. Zwar sind sie hier nicht so perfekt reif und cremig wie dort, aber bei einem Smoothie ist das auch…
