Healthy Einkorn Christmas 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?

Chocoholic? Vegan Dark Chocolate Walnut Brownies

Hello all,

One of my colleagues is vegan and she just felt like baking the other day. Lucky us, we got to eat them 🙂
I am actually not a big fan of any baking goods that are made of or taste like chocolate. Thus, I’d choose fruit tarts or pie, or warm apple/cherry turnovers over chocolate pastries at any time, BUT those brownies are absolutely delicious!!

Oatmeal – Why it’s NOT just a Meal with Oats

Hello dear Yogilators!
It’s becoming fall outside, that means cooler mornings and less sunshine during the day. So, our bodies crave warm comfy food that helps us stay energized even when the sun is missing.

One of my old time favorites is my beloved OATMEAL or in some countries better known as “porridge” 🙂 I eat it every morning during the week because it’s quick, easy, delicious, and keeps me satisfied and warmed-up inside.

Sure, it might not look the most delicious to some people, but it IS nutritious, delicious and healthy due to its various health benefits like:

For hot summer days: YOGILATIONAL NICE CREAM for a delicious and healthy cooling effect

The summer is here and the temperatures are accordingly now as well. How is your appetite these days?

Particularly when it’s hot out, our body and metabolism need lots of water and fresh foods rather than anything heavy.

Ice cream or frozen yogurt are surely a great idea, however, they are unfortunately usually packed with sugar and diary based, but not everyone can or want to actually eat diary (and/or too much sugar).

4-Ingredients Super Summer Detox Drink

Today is the official beginning of summer and we’re all ready and excited for more sun and finally jumping into the water, right?

Well, sun and swimming is all fun, but we need to take care of our skin and body in general from INSIDE-OUT.
While sunscreen is a must, we tend to forget to also protect ourselves from the inside. How? By staying hydrated, by eating our vitamins and by making sure we help our liver to stay on top of the detox.

Sure, you might think that you don’t drink alcohol and you’re eating healthy and perhaps even only organic food. However, we are all exposed to chemicals and germs every day, which we take in by breathing in the air of our environment.

But the GOOD NEWS is that there is an easy, delicious, and natural way to support our liver and to even help our skin looking fresh and wrinkle-free as long as possible!
