porridge overnight buckwheat berry (7)

Dear WordPress-Followers,

about a week ago, my blog moved from to! It’s got a completely new layout, which is really awesome. It’s making me so happy, starting new projects with my blog and a logo is coming soon, too.

At the moment I’m doing a product testing for and I’ll be writing about it on Saturday. I’m working on my new “inspiration”-section, where I’m introducing interesting people, blogs and recipes. And of course, I’m sharing loads of recipes, which are all low in cholesterol, mostly plant-based, often gluten-free and healthy through and through.

If you’re interested in reading my stuff, please follow me on my new domain or subscribe to my blog via email. I’ld be so glad to welcome you on my site and it’ld be a pleasure for me having you as my followers!

Peach and Mango Smoothie

Sundays are for long breakfasts and delicious smoothies! This is one of my favourite smoothies for summer. It’s really sweet, containing juicy fruits making you feel vital. Although it’s banana free, which is quite nice sometimes, it’s really creamy. If you want this smoothie to be more filling, add oats, seeds or plant protein powder. You could even add a banana, but I think this smoothie doesn’t really need it. One other nice thing about this smoothie is that it doesn’t contain many ingredients. You don’t need to have a lot of stuff at home but still enjoy a really delicious, fuelling and pretty drink!

Broccoli and Fennel Salad

As it’s getting warmer and warmer I’m eating more and more salads for lunch and dinner. This salad contains many different nice flavours. It’s light and fuelling, making you feel energized for a perfect spring or summer’s day. I really like it a lot, especially when topped with sunflower and pumpkin seeds. This way you don’t only get your protein via contained greens like broccoli, but a lot more through seeds, which also contain healthy fats. I hope you like this recipe as much as I do!

Baked Apple, Raspberry and Raisin Oatmeal

Yesterday I had one of the most delicious breakfasts ever. A week ago I made baked oatmeal for the first time and it was amazing. Yesterday, on Mother’s Day, I prepared it for family brunch. I can’t describe how much I like this kind of oatmeal! It’s sweet, fruity, creamy and crunchy all at the same time. Besides, it’s really healthy and nutritious: the best way to start a day. It takes a little more prep time than conventional oatmeal or porridge which makes it the perfect breakfast for weekends. As you usually prepare more than just one serving in an ordinary ovenproof dish, it’s a nice option for a brunch with friends and family!

Guest Recipe: Chocolate Hearts

sophieheartscom chocolate hearts

Today is a special day: it’s Mother’s Day! This always means lots of sweet things (food and words!), baking, family brunch and afternoon tea – and of course: much time for mum. Today we had a wonderful brunch with lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, wholemeal bread, hummus, spicy veggie quark and baked oatmeal. First, I thought about sharing my recipe for my lovely baked oatmeal today, but I think I found something sweeter – or cuter – to share with you on Mother’s Day: Chocolate hearts from This blog isn’t just about vegetarian and mostly healthy food, but about lifestyle and fashion, too. She’s located in Vienna and loves this beautiful city as much as I do, at least that’s the impression I’ve got from browsing through her blog. The reason why I was inspired by her chocolate hearts is, that it made me think of delicious chocolate flavourings again. There are so many ways to make your own special kind of chocolate, including all those flavours you enjoy or haven’t tried so far and would love to. And: they are a perfect gift for Mother’s Day!

Spinach and Basil Soup

I know that it’s already mid-spring and most of the time it’s really warm outside. But when I created this recipe last week, it was really uncomfortable outside, the wind blowing and rain falling. This made me crave a hot and creamy soup so much that I took my blender and mixed up lovely spring and summer flavours for soup. I love greens for their colour, their taste and their contribution to a healthy body. I’m always feeling awesome after a huge bowl packed with greens and goodness.

Guest Recipe: Cajun Quinoa and Vegetable Salad

Today is one of those days where I’m spending many hours at uni. Almost always this means not being able to cook all day, except breakfast. Normally, I’m taking one of my smoothies with me, but today everything is different. I found a wonderful blog called Kathie’s Cloud and got inspired to make a delicious quinoa and vegetable salad to take with me. At first this sounds like something rather “normal” or “conventional” but this guess is wrong, absolutely wrong. What’s so special about this recipe is the homemade cajun spice mix Kathie uses to flavour her quinoa salad. This idea is simply amazing. It’s a mixture of paprika, cumin, salt, thyme, oregano and garlic – what a wonderful combination! Thank’s a lot for the inspiration, Kathie! I can’t wait to snack on the lovely salad I prepared for today’s afternoon at uni!

Vanilla Almond Milk

I think this may be one of the best versions of plant-milk I’ve ever made. It’s so creamy, sweet and delicious! If you think it’s complicated to make your own dairy milk substitute, you’re wrong. Actually, there isn’t anything easier. I use my plant-milks for making porridge, eat it with granola and lots of fresh fruit. It’s great in baking as well. And above all, it’s healthy. It contains only natural ingredients, all nasties which store-bought plant-milk contains are left out completely. Almonds contain protein, vitamins (B1, B2, E), minerals, healthy fats and are said to help lower cholesterol. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

Quinoa and Lime Salad

Greens, greens, greens! I simply love this salad! Not only for its colour, but also (and even more) for its taste. It’s so fresh and vitalizing, perfect for a spring and summer meal. What’s awesome are its nutrients, too, as this salad contains protein, fibre, iron and many more! Did you know about the health benefits of flaxseed oil? Get some information about it and try it for cold dressings. The taste is very special, but if you combine it with the right spices, vinegar and maybe some maple syrup you’re going to enjoy it. I even add it to my sweet porridge with fresh fruits, tasting awesome. I used flaxseed oil for the dressing in this recipe, tasting delicious with lime juice and fresh mint!
