Zero Waste – Wait What?

Okay guys so, I have recently come across the topic of Zero Waste – it really seems to be a thing nowadays – and I must admit, I’m a little hooked!

Sugar Issues

We all love sweet things. We’re primed to crave them because it’s a fast and easy resource for sugar and therefore a quick energy shot. And at the same time, more and more people try to cut out sugar from their diet completely – because it’s supposed to be the devil. So, are we instinctively … Continue reading Sugar Issues

Quote Series: If Nothing Changes

“Nothing changes, if nothing changes“  (by somebody smart) The meaning of this sentence seems obvious – but do you really understand it? I’ve only just come across this one today and honestly, I first thought that was an unnecessary and pseudo-intellectual space filler in my Instagram feed. But for some reason it got stuck in … Continue reading Quote Series: If Nothing Changes

Nutrition Basics: Fats

During the last two nutrition posts, I’ve already covered two of the three major food groups: Protein and carbohydrates. So, the one left now is – fats. I feel like we’re having such a love-hate relationship with this topic today – and everybody is arguing about the right way of eating (or not eating) fats. … Continue reading Nutrition Basics: Fats

And how can it bring … Continue reading Headspace – How to Turn Your Brain into a Cotton Ball

Coffee Issues 2.0

Finally, here comes the promised update to my coffee-detox-experiment: My original challenge was to drink a maximum of one cup of brew a day. So, I started with that and failed miserably. The first two days went well, but after that I unconsciously got back to having two regularly. When I finally realised that my … Continue reading Coffee Issues 2.0

Nutrition Basics: Protein

Today, I would like to go a little deeper into the nutrition topic by highlighting a few key principles you might want to arrange your diet around (I got a few request about this). During my education as a medical student, we’ve discussed a lot of related topics – such as metabolism of all sorts … Continue reading Nutrition Basics: Protein

Coffee Issues 1.0

Right now, I’m at a very uncertain point in my life – should I give up coffee once and for all or should I stay loyal with the bittersweet brew? Yes, that’s relevant (at least for me, lol)! The last few weeks have been veeery busy emotionally and also physically (some health issues including hormones … Continue reading Coffee Issues 1.0

Nutrition (Basics)

This is not going to be yet another listing of what you should eat and what you shouldn’t. Because this type of post is flooding the internet already anyway – some of which are really good and others that are complete nonsense. And since I’m not a certified holistic nutritionist, I don’t want you take … Continue reading Nutrition (Basics)
