Kale smoothie with maca

I have to confess that – despite the fact I put it all together myself in the blender – I had my doubts about this kale smoothie. I mean… sure I like kale but mostly in a mix with mashed potatoes, bacon and a smoked sausage. Not necessarily in a drinkable variation ....more

Dudefood Tuesday: Fajita fiesta (two different fajitas)

I love Mexico and I love Mexican Food even more. I am fond of all the rich herbs and spices they use in their kitchen and the combinations of spicy and peppery with refreshing guacamole or sour cream. Mexican Food is by far THE hardcore Dude Food if you ask me ....more

Week 8 – New start with I quit sugar

Week 8 already and well, we didn’t exactly book a lot of progress. After that initial burst at the beginning where I lost 5 kilo (that hasn’t come back on, so that is a plus) it didn’t move any further. It doesn’t help that I have a weird injury on my left foot ....more

Lemon strawberry muffins – glutenfree and sugar free

I am not necessarily all about eating glutenfree or sugarfree and especially not when it comes to baking. On the contrary; I think – to be honest – that sugar is just very delicious. But I know a lot of people eat sugar free and don’t use any grains and I like a good challenge.On top of that I am doing the I quit sugar challenge myself right now so the perfect time to experiment with these muffins ....more

Smoothie with a little bit of spring

It happened all of a sudden this week; I walked outside , the sun was shining and it just happened – for a very brief moment – I had that spring feeling. It’s comparable to the beginning of autumn; you know it is coming but it is always suddenly there. That very special something in the air that signals that the season is about to change… Now I am not so sure it is already time for spring ....more

DudeFood Tuesday: Superfast breakfast pastries

Last week it was made very clear again that there will always be a communications gap between men and women. It is as the famous book about this subject already states: ‘Men like to eat a Mars and Women shave with Venus’ or something like that. Also for this dude and his Misses there was a big ‘misunderstanding of the sexes’ going on last weekend ....more

Making your own mustard

I can be the impatient type… Bread that needs to proof is something utterly annoying. Things that need to soak or ferment not much better. And mustardseeds I need to soak overnight… well that just seemed pointless to me ....more

Tartelets with cavolo nero and spicy mustard

Growing up my mum used to make kale with mashed potatoes quite often. And to my own horror, I absolutely hated it. My mum didn’t have much imagination when it came to the mash ....more

Soba noodles with spicy chicken and lemon oil

Noodles… They make me happy. And this dish is really simple to make. I used soba noodles that are made of buckwheat flour and therefore are glutenfree ....more

Dudefood Tuesday: Tapasburger with ‘cohones mayo’

I love Spanish food and the spicy flavours they use in the Mediterenean kitchen. That’s why I am also very fond of tapas and tapasbars. For sure, every dining facility that has the word ‘bar’ in it, must be a GREAT place to eat for every dude ....more
