Hello Lovelies, and happy Friday!
My bowl of happiness today: Miso Soup with Soba Noodles, veggies, roasted Shiitake and crispy tofu! Will post the recipe on my blog soon, and many more - I just need a little elf to do all the typing 😄🤷♀️
Hallo Ihr Lieben und einen schönen Freitag! Wir sind grad im Nudel-Suppen-Fieber, diesmal: Miso-Suppe mit Soba Nudeln, Gemüse, gerösteten Shiitake Pilzen und knusprigem Tofu!
Das Rezept kommt ganz bald auf den Blog, ich bräuchte nur einen kleinen Elf, der das Tippen für mich übernimmt 😂🤷♀️! Habt einen schönen Abend! ❤️
December is almost here - can you believe it? And with it comes the annual overindulgence... be it in the form of gingerbread, stollen, cookies, mulled wine or just heavy meals.
Inspired by my recent travels to Stockholm - where I had kannelbullar-style date balls - I made these gingerbread bliss balls. This way you can enjoy all the lovely flavours & sweetness but in a much healthier form.
Ingredients: 1 handful of almonds (toasted in a pan until fragrant), 2 handfuls tigernuts (soaked overnight, rinsed and drained), 5-7 soft dates (roughly chopped), 1 heaping tsp hemp butter (or any nut butter), 1 tsp gingerbread spice, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, pinch of salt --> blitz until just wet/oily enough to shape little balls. If too dry, add more nut butter, if too wet add some ground nuts or chia. Decorate with something tart e.g. dried pomegranate arils or barberries.
I highly encourage you to use your hands for measuring - you don't always need exact recipes and scales. Especially when making bliss balls go with your intuition. I use a combo of soaked + toasted nuts for optimum consistency AND flavour. Swapping the tigernuts for cashews will give you a creamier result, but I just love the tigernut flavour.
One more thing: I am not saying you shouldn't indulge during the festive season! I will definitely enjoy some less healthy foods at Christmas markets, on my birthday (which is also coming up soon) and over the holidays with my family. However, bliss balls are a staple for me so I'm just happy to have a healthier snack at hand that still tastes like Christmas. 🎄🎅❤

Embarking on our annual trip up to Maine to be with family and eat lots of yummy food. You could say this is my spirit holiday (@kenworthystudio
that could be a thing?) because it includes all my favorite seasonal flavors and veggies, in my favorite place (Maine) with my favorite people (family). I used to struggle bringing my “inventions” (as they would call my vegan/gf dishes) not wanting to be weird and definitely not wanting to miss out on something more delicious!! but through the years (through fierce competition with siblings) it has led to improve the T-day game which eventually led to last years pop up Friendsgiving at @morriceflorist
where we all (@jocelynfilley @farmfieldseamv @notyoursugarmamas
) threw one heck of a plant based feast! And now the event is now being featured on the @thechalkboardmag
! Head over to their website to get my Roasted Cauliflower and Shiitake Gravy recipes and see some pics from that magical night! #eatmoremagic #plantbasedthanksgiving
This morning I made buckwheat pancakes topped with coconut yoghurt, blended with blue spirulina from @superfoods.ae
banana and maple syrup, topped with my favourite toppings.🦋
You now can order the blue spirulina in the UAE through www.superfoods.ae using my code HUDA20 #Healthybyhuda #superfood
In the past 12 years I’ve lived in 6 different countries, on 5 different continents. I’ve had over 50 roommates (yep! I can’t believe it either!), and have started 2 businesses. ⠀
But what’s even crazier - I think - is the fact that I moved to all of these new places on my own. It’s kinda funny actually, thinking about it, I’ve mastered the art of uprooting myself...⠀
If you had asked me a year ago if I would ever go back to Germany, my answer would have been NO WAY! ⠀
Well, never say never, they say - and in this case I’ve managed to completely shock myself...⠀
I don’t know what happened to be honest, but for some reason, over the past 6 months, I’ve been feeling a need to settle. To stop living out of my suitcase, to always have a next trip planned...⠀
...and while I actually have a ticket to Australia for December 8th, and plans to spend the winter in the sun - it seems that l was never supposed to get on that plane.⠀
It’s a long story, my friend, but the real reason I’m telling you all this is because I’m about to start a new chapter. A new beginning.⠀
I’m moving to Berlin. ⠀
On Saturday. ⠀
And for the very first time, I feel nervous about a move.⠀
I’ve been thinking about changing the direction of my Instagram account for a while actually, and this idea of taking you on this journey with me came to my mind. I talked about it more in my Stories, and I’d love to hear your feedback and if this is actually something you want to see...⠀
So let me know! I’m excited to hear from you, xoxo 💋
Рецепт нннада?! 😁
... Please send your granola recipe so I can make it and have it everyday for every meal.
Please and thank you. 🙏🏻
Taking a stab at recreating the açaí bowl from @cafegratitude
with the last bit of granola that I had from our trip to LA for @remode
. Blend 1 packet of @damn
azon açaí with 1/4 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/2 banana (or 1/4 banana and cauliflower), 1 scoop @vitalproteins
collagen and a packet of @yoursuperfoods
“forever beautiful mix” which is a mix of chia seeds, açaí, maqui, acerola, and blueberry powder. (What can I say @instagram
ads got the best of me 🤷🏻♀️ but so far I like their powders.) Topped it off with coconut yogurt, almond butter, mulberries, toasted coconut, brazil nuts, hemp seeds and pomegranate.
I haven’t even started cooking yet, but I already know dinner is gonna be freaking delicious! 🤤👅💦
There are only 5 ingredients and 20 minutes standing between you and this shakshuka (eggs in a spiced tomato sauce) - and it's one of those dishes that works for breakfast, lunch or dinner. ⠀
No surprise that it's my go-to meal when I'm tired!⠀
Recipe on my website, via the link in bio 🍳⠀
The Mindful Mama and her two lil cubs 🐻 🐻! Since this week is all about gratitude, I am ✨ THANKFUL✨ for my wonderful Mom and how she has always stressed the importance of family. To this day, she is constantly reminding my brother and I that when they're gone, we've only got each other.
Even though we're both in our 20's, after about 5 days together (we've actually timed this), my brother and I revert. Revert to what? Well, back to our teenage selves where we end up screaming at each other over just about anything. Don't worry, we always make up and I know we *always* will 💕
I'm thankful not only for my Mom, Dad, and brother, but for my ENTIRE family this week. They have been so supportive of me, no matter what, and especially as I continue #themindfulhapa

Who needs mashed potatoes when you have cheesy potatoes? This recipe combines three types of cheese and is topped with crispy toasted panko breadcrumbs.⠀

PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE ICE CREAM WITH SALTY CINNAMON SWIRL // Moving to the desert is the perfect excuse to turn one of my favorite fall flavors (pumpkin spice) into a cold treat (ice cream)! It may not look like much, but this mess of a bowl is made entirely of veggies, nuts, and fruit (with a little collagen boost)!! Here’s what you’ll need:
1 bottle Pumpkin Spice @zupanoma
(see sub in comments)
1 cup raw cashews
2-4 pitted dates
2 tsp cinnamon, divided
1 tsp ginger
¼ tsp cloves
½ tsp maple extract
¼ tsp salt
3 tbsp almond butter
Optional: 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1. The day before making, put the bowl of your ice cream maker in the freezer. Place the cashews in a glass jar with the dates and cover water to submerge. Soak overnight, then drain the water.
2. Using a high-powered blender, combine the cashews, dates, 1 tsp cinnamon, ginger, cloves, maple extract, and @zupanoma.
Blend until smooth.
3. Transfer to a bowl in the fridge to cool.
4. When mixture is cold, process in your ice cream maker.
5. While ice cream is freezing, combine the remaining 1 tsp cinnamon with the salt and almond butter in a small bowl. Add the maple syrup, if using. Add by the spoonful to the ice cream maker while it is still on, just before ice cream is finished, so that it will swirl in but not completely combine.
6. For a firmer ice cream, transfer to an airtight container in the freezer.
I topped this bowl off with an additional drizzle of almond butter and some granola, and next time I’ll probably double the swirl because that’s always my favorite part! (As in, my ice cream containers used to look like a scene from Holes because I was always chasing the good stuff! Now I’m more of a “keep the top completely flat” kind of gal ✌🏻 What about you?)

Gone are the days of boring ‘ol hummus. I’m just kidding – I love hummus of all kinds and rarely grow tired of it! ⠀
But part of being an intuitive eater is honouring what you want when you want, and sometimes that happens to be a Turmeric Curry Hummus over plain ass hummus! Y’feel me?! 🙌🏼⠀
This recipe is now up on the blog (#linkinbio
) and if you don’t want to miss a recipe or new post from me, you can get on my newsletter at the link in my bio! 💌⠀
Side note: what other fun hummus flavours would you like to see? I also have a beet hummus on my blog and made a sun-dried tomato version the other day! 😋 | #RealAssFood
As beautiful as they turned out, NO ONE in my house (including me) liked these beet-based veggie burgers...this can be frustrating as crap, but it happens! Don’t make the mistake of letting one setback steer you in a certain direction!
The most delicious, easy salad: shaved fennel, crunchy celery, thinly sliced Bosc pears, torn basil, nutty manchego cheese, and toasted hazelnuts with a lemon zest, shallot, & mustard vinaigrette! Recipe from Athena @eyeswoon #cookbeautiful
On day two of the weekly “what I’m thankful for,
i am extremely grateful for the abundance of fresh and sustainable food that I have to capability to buy
not everyone can say that
every single time i cook i remember this
i see food not just as a way to nourish our bodies, but also as a way to nourish our heart
it is through this connection, this gratitude, that i am able to feel Mother Earth in my hands,
swirl through my fingertips
mold in my palms
it is the ability
to return to nature
to look to it, not just as food
but as life
what it is, becomes us, and is us

Persimmon apple crumble pie 🥧 🤤
Pies have ALWAYS been my thing. Every single holiday I’d make the entire meal with my mind on perfecting and eating that pie. There’s something about everyone’s smiles & the excitement when really good pie is on the table. This one is simple enough for the beginning cook and delicious enough for any crowd. It’s also plant based and GF... you know I’ve got you covered 😘 Link in bio.
Had planned to make this Asian beef salad in peanut dressing tonight.

Pine pollen, cinnamon and @dandyblend
Pine pollen powder contains a broad spectrum of nutrition such as protein, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and trace elements. Pine pollen can help increase the resistance of human body to daily stress and serve as a restorative agent to promote immunity. •
This delicious powder could provide a protective function for human beings from radiation and other chemical contamination in our surrounding environment. •
Pine pollen powder also contains such antioxidants like glutathione and SOD. Glutathione is capable of preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals, peroxides, lipid peroxides, and heavy metals. Glutathione is a necessary agent for the metabolism of certain vitamins and minerals such as iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and is involved in amino acid transport. It also inhibits cancerous growths, neutralizes free radicals and is vital for DNA synthesis and production. In addition, glutathione also works as a liver-detoxifying agent.
Arginine and sulfur-based MSM in pine pollen powder is very helpful to treat different skin conditions.Androgen steriods in pine pollen powder also help to promote tissue regeneration and prevent the degradation of collagen and elastin.
Pine pollen truly is a nutrient rich superfood! 🌲💫

Healthy food can be comforting too 🌿😌 Cooked up this warm and hearty dish this AM to enjoy while I prepared for tonight’s Friendsgiving. It has chicken broth, lentils, butternut squash, yellow onion, and kale all simmered on the stove for about an hour or so. I didn’t have a recipe, I just threw what I had in the fridge/pantry in my cast iron dutch oven and let it heat up 😋 It was delightful! Happy Monday! 🧡 #alyssakayle
DARK CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN CUPS 🍫🎃
Okay guys I think this is ~officially~ my last pumpkin recipe of the season. It’s gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan (depending on the chocolate you use) and NUT FREE. 🙌
👉🏼 1 1/2 chocolate bar (I used @lindtexcellence
90% to keep it low in sugar)
👉🏼 2-3 tbsp. pure pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
👉🏼 1 tbsp. @sunbutter
sunflower seed butter (nut butter would work too)
👉🏼 1 tsp. @simplyorganicfoods
👉🏼 1 tsp. @365bywholefoods
pumpkin pie spice
👉🏼 1 tsp. coconut oil
👉🏼 Pinch of sea or pink salt
Line a mini muffin tray with liners. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil. Add 1 tsp. chocolate to each liner and place in the freezer. While that sets, mix together pumpkin, sun butter, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. Add 1 tsp. of the pumpkin mixture to the chocolate and then cover with chocolate. Sprinkle some sea salt on top then place back in the freezer to set again. Keep in the freezer because these usually melt fast. Enjoy! 💚
To celebrate the holidays, community, and all that Fall brings, @SquareMealRoundTable
and I organized our 7th seasonal collaboration. We’re highlighting the humble cranberry this season, because it’s so much more than it’s canned reputation gives it credit for! Check out the #yesyoucranberry
hashtag today for endless recipe inspiration. My contribution is a little recipe without a recipe. Take that leftover cranberry sauce, shake it up with fresh citrus, gin, and pour into a chilled glass. Top with sparkling water or cranberry kombucha and fresh herbs, and voilà - you’ve got the most delicious drink from those Thanksgiving leftovers. ❤️I feel an immense sense of gratitude with Thanksgiving right around the corner, as well as a responsibility to acknowledge that having access to food and sharing recipes is a privilege. For many in California, the holidays feel a bit different this year. With our state on fire and with what feels like constant tragedies all over the world, sharing lighthearted food posts and pretty styled photos can feel so insignificant. So, in addition to sharing recipes with each other this week, in the comments please share any resources and organizations you know of that help bring food to everyones tables. Or perhaps organizations that are offering up free masks for those in areas affected by the fire, basic hygiene supplies to those in need, animal shelters for displaced animals from the fires - you name it. Cheers to the food world for fostering such a strong sense of community and nurturing one another. If you are still reading, I am grateful for all of you - and I’m sending you all extra love this holiday season! ❤️
Quinoa comes in over one hundred varieties. White, red, and black are most common. Look closely next time you order quinoa at Café Zupas and you'll see all three ☺
