A healthy and easy smoothie bowl recipe!

The Easiest Smoothie Bowl (Vegan)

Smoothie Bowl

It has been an absolutely crazy week. Returning from the Seychelles over the course of 3 days of delayed flights, missing luggage and the most terrifying turbulence I have ever experienced, I am finally settled back in Berlin. Good news is I’m healthy (besides an unfortunate winter cold), my luggage has returned and I survived […]

Cardamom Coconut Oats with Persimmon & Mandarin Oranges

 I am the green smoothie’s biggest fan. They are such a great way to pack in some extra greens and carb up for the day. In the summer, I drink smoothies at least twice a day, sometimes even thrice. Because they are just so delicious and creamy and make my body buzz with energy! This smoothie […]

A fellow blogger and friend, Kaimo from Travel Maker Kai, suggested that I start using my blog as a place to write about my adventures as well. […]

Cranberry Coconut (Christmas) Granola

Finally, a food processor!!! I can not express the joy I had when my blender/food processor combo arrived. These are the secret joys of foodies; we go crazy over local farmers markets, Whole Foods and kitchen appliances. I am overwhelmed with happiness because I am currently enjoying 2/3 of these here in Berlin.  Grocery shopping […]
