HEALTHY LIVING: detox round 2

It has been almost exactly 6 months since the last time Kathi and I detoxed (check out our detox diary HERE), and in order kick-off the bikini season with a little help, we decided to go for round 2! Unfortunately, our schedules are so busy right now, that we were only able to squeeze in a 3-day juice cleanse, but I guess a 3-day cleanse is better than a no-day-cleanse, right? Since the last time around went fairly smooth for me (I didn’t get hungry at all during the 5 days and felt pretty good, even made it to the gym once), I decided to step it up a notch this time around and went for the Super Green Delight.

TRAVEL: Nomad in Marrakech

Last night, we ventured out into town. It feels like two worlds collide when you leave the paradise of La Mamounia and enter the hustle and bustle on the streets. We made our way through the souks, scared to take a wrong turn and never find the way out again, and ended up at the most beautiful rooftop oasis in the middle of town: Nomad. With a modern Moroccan feel, it was interior love at first sight. In true Marrakech-manner, we were surrounded by gorgeous tiles, super helpful staff, breath-taking views and delicious food. If you ever happen to find yourself infront of a white sign that reads NOMAD in black capital letters, go in and don’t hesitate a second! You’ll love it! Here are some impressions from our dinner last night:

RECIPE: homemade pizza pockets with asparagus

After the last, healthy breakfast smoothie recipe (check it out HERE), it is time for a little something savory today. After all, it is the weekend, which is when calories don’t count and pyjamas and sweats are considered real outfits (at least in my world). Ironically, I am still in my sweats while writing this, with a belly full of homemade pizza pockets with asparagus. Yumm! While I would love to pretend like it was my full intention to make these delicious pizza pockets when I was shopping for groceries yesterday, it would be a complete lie. I actually wanted to make a strudel with puff pastry, but apparently grabbed pizza dough instead of the pre-made puff pastry. The wrong dough called for some improv action in the kitchen, and luckily the result was pretty satisfying.

RECIPE: chocolate-banana breakfast smoothie

Dessert for breakfast? Sign me up! A while back, I was in a rush before leaving for the office in the morning and didn’t have time for any of my usual breakfast options like chia pudding, bircher müsli or oatmeal. Instead, I decided to make use of an overly ripe banana and tossed it into the blender with a whole bunch of other things, that I guessed would keep me full until lunch – or at least for a while. The outcome, a totally vegan chocolate-banana breakfast smoothie, is my new favorite go-to breakfast and I even make it on the weekends, where I have plenty of time. It tastes like liquid dessert and with a whole bunch of healthy ingredients it is the perfect fuel to start the day.
