Kale smoothie with maca

Kale smoothie with maca Powder |

I have to confess that – despite the fact I put it all together myself in the blender – I had my doubts about this kale smoothie. I mean… sure I like kale but mostly in a mix with mashed potatoes, bacon and a smoked sausage. Not necessarily in a drinkable variation. But sometimes you have to think outside the box and so I added a good handful of kale into my blender. At first glance there was  bit too muck kale left. It didn’t blend all that wel;. The trick to solve that turned out to be adding enough fluid and blending the kale first before adding more ingredients. And in case you’re wondering; the kale is raw. No need to cook anything first.

Smoothie with a little bit of spring

It happened all of a sudden this week; I walked outside , the sun was shining and it just happened – for a very brief moment – I had that spring feeling. It’s comparable to the beginning of autumn; you know it is coming...

DudeFood Tuesday: Superfast breakfast pastries

Last week it was made very clear again that there will always be a communications gap between men and women. It is as the famous book about this subject already states: ‘Men like to eat a Mars and Women shave with Venus’ or something...

Mustard |

Making your own mustard

I can be the impatient type… Bread that needs to proof is something utterly annoying. Things that need to soak or ferment not much better. And mustardseeds I need to soak overnight… well that just seemed pointless to me. Because yes I had been...
