After a very long break I will start again now to add a new recipe on my blog. Please forgive you had to wait so long for it. The last weeks and months were just crazy in regards of travelling and work. It was too much and so I decided to put my blog on hold for the moment.

Additional to that I was also going to a big phase of chance for myself. As I have told you before I was eating very clean and very healthy, sugarfree, reduced carbs, no white flour, no white rice, no white bread, minimum preservatives and only good fats. In general you would think that I am a very healthy person. I was also doing lots of sport activities, I run my first half marathon and I was thinking to run a marathon…

…What I forget was my mental health. While I was pushing my body for sport activities to stay fit and eating only healthy my mind got sick. I needed to control everything I ate. I was always choosing the healthiest opion in the Restaurant, not what I actually liked. I would never follow my cravings.

The last months I started to make a change. I follow my cravings! And I mean all of them! I ate last weeks more chocolate than I had the last 5 years and I rest my body.

But guess what… even being not so healthy and doing less sport and becoming bigger I am  more happy. The key is I can go again to social events without being scared about the food. If a friend baked a cake I don’t need to reject it anymore but can enjoy it and ask for another piece. If I want to eat a Hamburger I can just do it. Life is so much easier and more enjoyable than it was before. I am not longer limited on food, my bodyweight and what my body looks like. I realize that there is so much more!

However no worries, I will keep posting healthy recipes.  You need all the good nutrition’s, healthy fats, good carbs and vitamines. My recommondation is only that you should also allow yourselve to have a piece of chocolate or a pizza, if you want it and not think about the calories, the sugar or the fat. Listen to your body, he knows best what you need in this moment.

But now let’s focus on this amazing recipe  I made last week for catering. They loved it so much and I promised to add the recipe on my blog. So here we are and this is the recipe:
