“Your Superfoods” – Healing While Helping Someone Else

Hello my dear Yogilators,

I hope you are all doing well these days when the days get shorter, it gets colder outside and our immune system is working a little harder than usual.

As you know, I am a big believer in the mind-body connection and the healing power of food. However, it’s quite tough to get all essential vitamins and minerals in every day, therefore it became almost a given to take supplements, mostly in form of pills. Frankly, I don’t like taking boxes of pills with me, so I started to search for alternatives almost 3 years ago.

That’s when I stumbled over the so called “superfoods” and integrated them into my daily meals, like my oatmeal in the morning, or smoothies, and even muffins and cookies when I bake.

In my post about our “new superheroes,” I gave you a little overview of all the super great health benefits of Maca, aronia, moringa, hemp, acai, wheatgrass and many more.

And now guess what, I found a very cool company who shares my passion for nutrition and understands the great health benefits of these super foods as well! AND, lucky me, I got to try some of their super mixes for you. 🙂

Healthy Einkorn Cookies

Happy holidays everyone!

It’s the perfect time for baking, either alone or with your loved ones! Christmas cookies are delicious but oftentimes full of sugar and butter. BUT here is a healthy, less sweet but also delicious, alternative for you: EINKORN COOKIES! 🙂  Einkorn is the “new” super food these days. It’s the most nutritious grain with a high protein and phosphorous, potassium, and Vitamin B6 content as well as many other very good-for-you ingredients. 

Buttermilk Red-Currant Einkorn Muffins

After all my travels, I finally had the time to bake again! So, I decided to try out my Einkorn flour from Biojoy and to bake some fresh and healthy buttermilk red-currant Einkorn muffins. They turned out to be super delicious, but also different from other muffins that I have baked so far. The Einkorn flour mixed with coconut oil and vanilla extract made it a little less fluffy and more “crunchy” — YUMM!

You’re wondering what Einkorn actually is?

“Soost Fitness Meets Hall Yoga” Class at Celebrity Sports School Berlin

Dear Yogilators,

Happy beginning of spring! The sunny and colorful season is about to get started and what is better than using this time to go out more and try new things?

About 2 weeks ago, I decided to finally go to the Celebrity Sports School in Berlin and take the “Soost Fitness meets Hall Yoga” class instructed by Detlef D! Soost and his wife Kate Hall. I’ve “talked” to Kate via Instagram before about taking a class with her, and now I had a day off, so I just went. Life’s too short!
