Happy new year my lovely detoxers! 

Today I have something very special for you. While you are partying the night away I am actually figuring out a way for you and your body to recover from a night out sooner.

We all have these nights. You had a great party, danced the night away like there was no tomorrow and the next day, well, surprise there is a morning! Headache, dizziness, diarrhea and possible nausea are just some of the symptoms of a hangover.

Merry Christmas my beloved reader! 

It’s Christmas and here in Europe our festivities start in the late afternoon of the 24th of December.
We gather usually with my family on the 24th and with my hubbies family on the 25th. My family is loud and big and the true meaning of Christmas usually gets totally lost and my hubbies family Christmas is small, calm and thoughtful. Both are lovely and both have delicious foods.

Traditionally, with my family we eat a fondue chinoise. This is a veggie or meat broth in a little pan on the table and everyone puts a little fork with meat on it in there. On the side we serve rice and fries and a ton of different sauces. Well, this is for my meat eater family, not for me 🙂 I will be eating a steamed salmon fillet with some fries (it’s christmas after all) and salad. I will be responsible for the desert and I will be serving my gluten and dairy free bread pudding for everyone.

It’s Granola Time!

I love Granola or as I call it ‘Muesli!’ There are so many possibilities starting with overnight oats, granola bars, cookies and just simple granola with some nut milk in the morning! It’s always filling, healthy and delicious!

Unfortunately store bought Granola is usually full of sugar and quite expensive! I am not even going to talk about Kellogg’s and all the fellow kind of cereals.

All I am saying is: Stay the hell away from it!»

 Baby it’s cold outside…

I safely made it to Switzerland and let me tell you, it’s cold outside! No Snow yet but I am still hoping.

With this cold weather all around us the flu virus isn’t very far either. What better way to fight the flu than with an awesome tropical smoothie?

The color red of this smoothie stems from the red beet in it. Red beet might not be your favorite but the benefits are too awesome to pass on!

Winter Time 

Christmas is by far my favorite time of the year! I love candles, white blankets, hot teas, lights everywhere and the faces of my little brothers light up when they get their longed for Christmas present!

The holidays are also the time of enjoying each other. We get to see our loved ones and share delicious meals together. It seams also that wherever I go, there are some delicious cookies waiting for me.
Once in a while I can’t say no, I mean, how do you explain to your 95 year old grandmother that you don’t eat gluten or dairy? The pimple the next day is worth her happy face, feel free to pick your battles.  

I eat the following chocolate truffle all year long, I noticed that if I satisfy my sweet tooth, I will be able to skip the cookies and sweets during the day.

These chocolate truffle are amazing. They taste like a treat but are seriously good for you! When does that ever happen?

Happy Thanksgiving

I explained my love for thanksgiving in a previous post and the reasons why I don’t take on a big turkey bird. 

On a sunny afternoon I enjoyed some raw oysters at the Lark Creek Blue restaurant in San Jose, CA. After glancing over the menu I noticed a stuffed Branzino. This sounded just so good, I had to try it! Continue reading

Are mashed potatoes not one of the best comforting foods?

To me, mashed potatoes and gravy remind me of my Grandma in the Swiss Mountains.
She would make these amazing gravies with butter and cream and I would eat little mashed potatoes with a whole lot of gravy! I would beg her to make me a “sea” , what I meant was a lake, a lake for the gravy so she would create a  hole in the middle and fill it up with gravy.
