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? 

Benefits of Our New Superheroes: Maca, Moringa, Wheatgrass & Co

Dear all,

We see, hear and read about them everywhere, get them as a topping to our meals, smoothies, or even in our coffee:

Forget Popeye or the Power Rangers: our new superheroes are Matcha, Maca, Moringa, Wheat grass, Acai, Hemp, Cacao, Chia, Green Protein, Magic Berries, and Barley grass.

You can argue about this “hype” or think about it whatever you like. Fact is, that all of those “super foods” are completely natural, originally found either in form of seeds, leaves, or grasses, and can do just a little more than other plant based foods.

But what exactly?

Recipe: Healthy & Energizing Green Matcha Cappuccino

Afternoon slump? Long day ahead? Looking for a coffee alternative?

One of my favorite coffee alternatives where I don’t even have to skip the milk foam! HEAVENLY, easy, healthy, and quick. Have you ever tried Matcha? You can add the powder to your smoothie, oatmeal, or yogurt to mix it up a little. Matcha is full of health benefits ranging from cancer fighting to energy boosting benefits, as well as memory, concentration and endurance increase.

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).

For the love of breakfast …

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. I could eat breakfast the whole day, for each meal. Particularly oatmeal is my top choice in the morning! One of my Yogilators and popular German blogger Julia by JulieFeelsGood shares the love for the most important meal of the day, and created a recipe just for Yogilation 🙂

Recipe: Yogilational Green Smoothie

A few days ago, I signed up for a green smoothie challenge starting in February. In this challenge, I will drink 1 green smoothie a day for the whole month of February. I am excited and curious about the recipes and what it will actually do for me.

If you’ve been following my Yogilation page for while now, you know that I’m a “health-nut” and I enjoy trying new foods, places, and workouts, so I am looking forward to the green smoothie challenge for sure. So today, I wanted to use my greens that I had in my fridge for a small “trial green smoothie.” And here is what I mixed together:
