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?

Pack your Snack! My TOP 3 Favorite Protein Bars

What is your favorite to-go snack or (protein) bar?

Hello all!

It’s going to be a long day? Or perhaps you’re about to travel? I travel quite a bit in my job and leisure time, and I never leave my place without snacks. They have saved me many times from “blood sugar emergencies,” low moods, hunger pains, as well as unhealthy food choices.

There are many protein or snack bars out there, unfortunately many of them are sugar-packs, candy bars, or high fructose syrup monsters in disguise. Of course I am not a nutritionist, but I did find some natural, organic and delicious protein bar favorites that I’d like to share here with you since many of you have asked me before what I usually like to snack on 🙂
