A few words about Istanbul, by some nice people ;)

I just took the photos, and mixed the quotations with the most fitting photo. It was important for me, creating this in turkish language. Turkish is a different language, full with emotions. You cannot always translate it in german or english exactly.

My friend Kadir helped me a lot. My turkish is bad either :) but let’s work on it!


Istanbul is a place with many different minds and ideas, happiness, excitements, and who knows.. maybe also sadness, separations.. but also a place with my dearest friend! – Canan K. (Ethnologist)


Istanbul is a full crowded place, but deep inside it’s empty. – Yaprak Y. (Student)

Raw vegan truffles

So tasty, something you definitely must try out! I noticed that.. making raw food is easier for me. Why? I’m not so good when it’s about cooking. Sometimes my dishes are raw.. and sometimes I just burn the food. It’s a real disaster! But when it’s about raw food, you can’t make anything wrong – technically.


Making these truffles was so easy. Here is the recipe, for about 15-20 truffles,(it depends on the ball size) you need:

  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup agave syrup
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cup hazelnuts (blended)
  1. Blend the hazelnuts with your food processor
  2. Mix all the ingredients together, and then put your dough into the freezer for about 15 minutes.
  3. (Here it’s necessary using gloves) Just form some bite-sized balls with your hands, and lay them on a tray or big dish. You can add now, as a topping if you want, cacao powder, desiccated coconut or.. other nuts?
  4. Put them into the freezer again, for about 30 minutes.
  5. Eat them and.. enjoy!



Winter vegetables


In this post I want to talk with you about seasons fruits and winter vegetables. Today I was in the bazaar, shopping with my mom. We bought a lot of different types of vegetables, and at home we made a salad with our new ingredients as well. Sadly I don’t have a photo yet.

For example: tomatos and cucumbers are not in season – so we don’t need to eat them. They taste gross.. because their nutritions are also not fresh anymore. It’s better waiting for summer instead :)

When I need to eat something sweet, I prefer eating some delicious sweet ‘caramel’ like dates. They’re so tasty and even in winter fresh – as long as they’re sun-dried.

Benefits of dates:

Has nutritions like magnesium, potassium, iron, fiber, calcium, manganese, copper, amino acids, phosphorous as well as fats. Also vitamins A1, B1, B2, B3, B5

What we also found: black carrots. They’re also delicious, and the colour amazing too! They give a nice colour in your green salad – they’re contrast fits perfect!

Benefits of black carrots:
