This breakfast idea combines all my favorite components: chai tea and mango! The chai tea and it’s spices give the pudding a sweet taste, so it’s even great without any without sugar. The ripe mango gives the pudding a fruity note. A great refreshing mix for the office and the hot summer days. Who else is a chai tea fan?
Yay, it’s strawberry season! Do you like strawberries as much as I do? I prefer to go to a strawberry field and pick it myself. It’s a nice feeling to harvest something. For the season, I created a simple but delicious recipe for a vegan strawberry-shake with chia seeds.
Especially with my medical history – Crohn’s disease, a chronic inflammatory bowel disease – I’ve always been interested in what condition my intestinal flora is. In collaboration with “for you e-Health” I have dealt with the topics of microbiota, weight and intestinal tests and have dived deep into the current status for you.
On Monday I inspired my loved ones with this recipe and I hope, I inspire you too. The vegetarian Moussaka also perfectly fits with my current anti-inflammatory nutritional series. Why? The recipe contains a lot of vegetables and fiber. You will learn more in this post on which effect they have on our body.
Sugar plays a central role in the anti-inflammatory diet. But how can I easily eat sugar reduced? Many half-truths are circulating around this topic on the internet. In this post I will show you, what really matters and top it with a delicious and crispy recipe for the sugarfree orange-cinnamon-granola.
Porridge is one of the most favorite breakfasts. But every now and then it is nice to have some variety. The pseudo-grain quinoa is also ideal for cooking porridge. Quinoa is also characterized by the fact that it is gluten-free and contains proteins compared to oatmeal. A perfect start for every sensitive tummy. Have you ever tried quinoa porridge? If not, try this delicious recipe for quinoa porridge with warm berries.
Inflammation is like a dormant seat of fire that can be affected by nutrition and other environmental factors. Therefore, I would like to explain more about the topic in the next months and show easy recipes. Because often you read many and many tips, but then, it can hardly be implemented in your daily life. This cucumber-radish-salmon bowl is a good and easy start to reduce the inflammation slowly.
I love simple and fast recipes! Did I mention this before? Just throw everything in a large pot, let it bubble and finish. Put into cans, freeze a part and always have something healthy on hand. So easy and great is this recipe – chili sin carne with quinoa. The chili cooks almost by itself and needs only a few ingredients. Sweet potato, beans, peppers, tomatoes and quinoa. Et voila!
Rhubarb awakens childhood memories. My grandma has always planted it in their garden, harvested at the given time and made a delicious cake with sweet crumbles. As soon as it was done, we threw ourselves kids over it and ate a scoop of vanilla ice cream with it. Mmmh! Finally the rhubarb season is here and for me the time to show you my rhubarb vanilla muffins with oatmeal crumbles.
Who does not know hummus?! Hummus is an oriental specialty made from a few ingredients. These include chickpeas, tahini paste, olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice and spices. Hummus is often served with falafel or vegetables and tastes just heavenly. I love it! And just because I love it so much, I got inspired and created a soup for you – the thyme hummus soup with feta crumbles. Sounds good? Well then!

Frequently asked questions
I tried everything. But it is best not to eat at all. Do I take the strain off my gut?
In order to maintain an adequate supply of nutrients, to build up a rich microbiota as well as holistic health, a regular and symptom-oriented diet is necessary. The intestine and its great population need the right foods. Get a professional support along your way and always be patient. Exchange your ideas and wishes with your nutritionist. Or if you need some help, just don’t hesitate to contact me via the form.
I have no identified intolerances. Why do I still not tolerate fresh dairy products or fiber-rich foods?
Fresh dairy products contain higher levels of probiotics than usual, so they can briefly lead to lactose intolerance-like symptoms. The same is true for fiber-rich foods containing prebiotics. The intestine simply has to get used to the new population. Initially, you can relieve your stomach with a combination of vegetables and vegetable oils (such as linseed oil).
Cabbage, beans or fiber are bloating. Is there anything I can do against it?
A varied diet is important, including healthy fats. These relieve the intestine by ensuring that the food stays in the stomach for a longer time. Therefore always combine the meals with vegetable fats. But watch out – also the amount is important. Furthermore, frozen cabbage or beans are normally leading to less bloating.
