The 5 key rules for a good relationship

Reflecting now, I did so many things wrong in my past. Completely wrong. Don't understand me wrong, I'm only 24 now and I won't be able to tell you how life works, but I figured out what it needs to become strong in a relationship. And, I'm not only talking about a loving relationship between two people, I'll come to that, but the points apply to any relationship (friends, employer - employee, parents - children).

Begin Again

Perfectly Imperfect - begin again

β€žBe not the slave of your own past . . . plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.β€œ

Thoughts about Protein?

I recently get this question a lot: What about the protein?

Before I started going to the gym 5 times a week and starting my β€žbodybuildingβ€œ training, I never really thought of protein. And in these two years of bodybuilding training, I was already on a plant based diet, however I made experiences that I will never forget:

Vegan Thanksgiving Dessert: Pumpkin Pie

What would Thanksgiving be without a pumpkin pie?

Nothing. This pie is made with a nice typical salty (only slightly sweet) crust and a pumpkin filling which has a great texture and is completely free of dairy and even soy!

Behind the scenes of a picture: sometimes we put more effort into something and people only see the outcome, but not how much work was involved. Which - is ok, because the outcome is what matters. If you run a marathon, people only ask you about your finish time, nobody cares about the months of training that were involved and necessary to finish in that time. People, and when I say people I talk about us all, are more interested in the successful event, what has happened and not really in the why and how. The beauty is understanding and learning to love the process of doing what we are doing, exciting things will happen in 2018!

Happy Sunday 🌞 everyone! Unfortunately I‘d have to add this one: 🌧

This smoothie bowl is made with a base of pineapple 🍍, mango, coconut 🌴, vanilla and blue magic! I topped it with coconut, hazelnuts, chocolate, peanuts and peanut butter! 
What was your meal of the day?

Why don’t we give each other roses made of plastic? They would last forever, right? 
We would say: „What’s wrong with you? Roses made of plastic are not a real present. That doesn’t make sense!“ The truth is: We see the beauty in things that die. A rose only lasts about a week, before it dies. In that week we really enjoy having it, we care for it, change the water and keep it in the right temperature. And then it dies. And we know that. And we still love it. 
The same happens with your emotions and thoughts. They come, they stay and they die. Appreciate the moment, treat it like a rose. 🌹

Vegan Birthdaycake. This cake was not meant to be, the first one I had to throw away, because it just didn’t bake through, then I got a good base done. But then: this Frosting was more like a hard chocolate shell. Oops.

As the days get shorter and it starts getting colder, I’m less and less motivated to be really productive and do things. Usually I‘m like „do do do, push push push!“ I feel slow, on my runs, and in my daily life. I don’t feel satisfied, I don’t feel like I’m able to do „enough“. Anyone familiar with those feelings?

But I also realized that my standards are fairly high when it comes to calling a day productive/successful. Even on slow days I probably still get more done than the average couch potato. I learn to accept that some days are less intensive than others and that autumn/winter is a time to regenerate and fuel body and mind with energy for a good start into the next year.

I have been it baking again. 👩🏻‍🍳 recently I created a marbled banana cake that turned out to be moist, soft, little gooey and works with no butter, oil or fat! Simple ingredients, bananas, so easy and so tasty. It works every time! Check out the recipe on my website (I uploaded both an English and a german recipe) - link in bio, for the german recipe click on the german flag in the top right corner! 🍞🍌🍪 #bananacake #bananacakes #foodblog #foodblogger #foodblogger_de #marbledcake #marmorkuchen #bananabread #bananabreadmuffins #healthycake #healthycakes #fatfree #butterfree #lowfatvegan #lowfat #lowfatfood #weightlossjourney #marblecake #marblecakes #spreadthelovepower #chocolatecake #chocolatecakes #bananaaddict #highcarb #highcarbvegan #highcarblowfat #highcarbday #lowfatvegan #bakingtime #cakerecipe
Meditation helps me to get „offline“ and eject my life! 🌝

🍁Time for a healthy bowl of soulfood.🍂 This is what makes me happy in autumn! 🍁 Thanks to the cute girl at @vitasave.ca in north van that made this one vegan for me (just ask for no bee 🐝 pollen and no granola, that contains honey 🍯) but don’t worry they will replace it with fresh fruit, hemp seeds, shredded coconut 🌴 and berries 🍇🍒! Great service, good price! 🍧 btw: not sponsored, unfortunately ☺️😁 .

Summer: „cooling down with some Icecream“
Winter: „adapting to the cold with cold food aka icecream“ —�> my logic 🤓

Thanks Earnest Icecream for Vegan Triple: Chocolate, Maple Walnut Crunch and Cookies and Cream.
