Apple-broccoli soup with chestnut

We always take lunch to work in our lunch pails. Sometimes, after a hard working day - you find no time to cook something.

It's important to have some recipies at hand that work fast.

Part1: Prepare the soup

  • 1 can of cooked chestnuts
  • 1 brokolli
  • 1 apple
  • 250ml of coconut milk
  • 500 ml of vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon of ghee
  • salt
  • pepper

Put the brokolli into a pot.

Cut it into roses.

Cut the apple and add the chestnuts.

Cook 500 ml of water and create a vegetable broth.

Add 250 ml of coconut milk.

Pour it into the pot and turn on the heat.

Wait until all of it is boiling. Wait a little bit longer until all of it is really hot.

Part 2: Waiting

Put your soup into a wonderbag and wait 1 hour. (Or cook it for 20 minutes)

Part 3: The grand finale

Remove the soup from the wonderbag.

Remove some apple and some chestnuts, add ghee.

Use a food processor and purreé the soup. Add the remaining apples and chestnuts you just took out.

Add salt and pepper. No need to cook it at this point - you will do this the next day.

Part 4: Serving it

The next day you just cook the soup again and fill it into the lunch pails.

Add some parsley if you want a great look 😉

No time is no good excuse

This takes approx. 15 minutes of your time. You created a delicious gourmet soup, with great fresh ingredients.

That simple.

Banana meat-balls with mango-sauce

Summertime. Time for sweet meat-balls

These meat-balls are gluten-free - but defitely not low-carb. But hey - they are delicious. No need to be perfect! Right?


  • 400 g mixed minced meat
  • 1 bananas
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 squashed clove of garlic
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • salt
  • pepper

Mix all the ingredients of the meat balls. Form little balls and put them into a hot pan (with coconut oil).


  • 1 squashed clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of rice

Put the garlic into the oil and add the rice.

Wait until the rice looks a little bit translucent.

Then add boiling water. Boil it up and put it into a wonderbag.


  • 1 mango
  • 1 banana
  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon Sambal Olek
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 small can of cubed tomatoes
  • 1/2 bunch of parsley
  • 1 onion
  • salt
  • pepper
  • coconut oil

Dice the onions and glaze them in the coconut oil. Add tomatoes and coconut milk.

Let the sauce reduce a little bit, while you cube the mango and slice the banana.

Add mango and banana into the sauce.

Add the spices, salt, pepper. Take away the heat and add the parsley.


Put all of this together onto the plates. You can use a teacup to form the rice. And some of the parsley to make it nice.

Simply being

You have everything you need - right

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present. Babatunde Olatunji

This is a reminder for myself.

Live can be simple and beautiful. If you do not complicate it.

You have the sun, you have something to eat, you have a warm and cozy place to sleep you can walk outside and enjoy the beauty of it all.

If you think that you need more, you pay a price. More becomes less.

You buy ice cream and become fat. You get a car and have to work for the bank. You buy cheap food and ruin the planet. You think other people do wrong stuff and try to change them and become unhappy. You try to fix yourself, when there is nothing broken.

Don't forget that life is simple, if you can accept what is already given to you.
