Shortie but Goodie: Roasted Fennel

I looove fennel, but I realize that not many people do. I get it! What do you even do with that bulbous stuff that smells like the tea you had to drink when you were sick as a child? (For me it was chamomile, so that’s the reason why I loathe that particular tea)

Anyway! Hear me out! I encourage you to try this once, and if you STILL hate it, you have my permission to type up some angry comments.

London Glimpses, Part 1

About ten years ago, I went to London for a single day on a language school trip with my good friend Karin and the other three members of the “Brighton Crew”, Ju, Anna and Sid. One day was absolutely not enough and I have always wanted to come back “some day” to see more. That day was the Thursday after Easter, and this time I saw a whole lot more.
London was impressive and beautiful and diverse… and honestly: far too expensive. But let me walk you through the experience.

Shortie but Goodie: Hempseed Chocolate Bites

Apparently, hempseed* is super nutritious, high in protein and healthy fats and works well when sprinkled over smoothie bowls. At least that’s what my best friend since kindergarden served me for breakfast when I stayed with her (it was super healthy and super delicious). Which I don’t eat very often these days, because it is too cold and I want something hot.

So, I bought some hemseed and the stuff has been sitting on my shelf for a while and apart from occasionally putting it in my Müsli I haven’t eaten any of it.

What to do? Add chocolate.
