The one thing, that is more than typical for Germany, is bread. They say, we have the biggest variety and that is probably true. I grew up with bread. And I still love it.
I stick to wohle rye bread with seeds these days, healthy alternatives to the usual white bread. I’m not a fan of wheat anymore. But together with new bread I need new things to put on top of it.
A year ago, before I went vegan, it was cheese or some type of meat. My mom loves hummus, I do too, but even hummus can get boring after a while.
Maybe you know the spreads you can buy in stores – yummy, but filled with lots of oil and powdered vegetables. One spread fascinated me, though. A papaya.curry-spread I tried at a friends house.
You wouldn`t believe how easy it is to make it yourself and I can only encourage you to try it!
Another thing I want to tell you is that I won’t be posting two recipes per week anymore. I want to concentrate more on perfecting the recipes and really doing something you can enjoy yourself. That takes more time, but you’ll hopefully still get one recipe per week, if not, then one every two weeks. All oft hat depends on how stressful the next year of scholl will be. But as always, I’m giving my best and hope to inspire you!
The lake we are at right now is about thirty metres away as I’m writing this and it’s incredible peaceful and quiet here. I’m grateful for this downtime, time to do nothing but read, swim and bike a little. It is important to give yourself time to unwind and let all worries go, no need to beat yourself up for doing nothing. I’m feeling more inspired to start cooking when I’m at home again than ever!
I hope you have the loveliest time ever and to all of you who are on vacation: Happy holidays!
