Everyday since this summer I set myself a goal of going for a walk everyday or walk at least 25kms per week. I have managed to be constant, but now in autumn I actually increased my goal to 40kms per week besides going to swim at least 3x/week for 30mins. It feels so good to be active without exercise machines at home or going to the gym. Is possible and is even more satisfying because I get to see the sunrise and I’m more in contact with nature, the scenery in Heidelberg is just beautiful in any season of the year (this I have learned from my walks) and I get to start my day in a better mood.
So how is this connected to today’s recipe? Well, because this is what I eat if I feel hungry. I always eat carbs-rich breakfast/meal as pre-workout snack (about 2hrs before) but if I start to get appetite then I eat one of these bite-size snacks, just one is enough but can also be eaten as post workout. And are so easy and quick to make. So hopefully you’ll try the recipe and works as well for you as it has for me. Enjoy!

Wanted something #sweet but with rich in protein and fulfilling (must be the weather and my desire of hibernating :P). One of my childhood memories is eating my auntie’s delicious Capirotada which I had only eaten twice since is more a north Mexican kind of dessert. So I decided to hunt for a recipe and this is the one I tried and loved it (I could have used a bit more syrup, though)
Capirotada is kind of a “bread pudding” which as many of my home country’s desserts, is a mix of sweet and salty flavours. But very good balanced that makes it delicious but rich as well! So don’t skip the “weird mix” of ingredients, give it a try and let me know if you liked it!

This sweet bread is prepared as part of the traditional celebration of Día de Muertos (2nd of November, Day of the Dead) in Mexico. Its classic presentation is powdered with sugar, however there are other recipes that call for sesame seeds, it depends on the location and tastes.
Is not a quick recipe, but is easier than it seems and the result is completely worth it and satisfying to know you made it yourself, completely homemade. Let me know if you try it out!
You can find the original recipe here (in Spanish and with video demonstration)

A nice vegetarian recipe for patties made for a great brunch or picnic dish. Serve it with some guacamole and fresh vegetables on the side (tomatoes, in my case). Enjoy!

So far I had made the “classic” hummus, until I found this recipe with black olives and… leftover tomato sauce?? yes, and I loved it. I had it with tortilla chips but you can enjoy it as snack with veggies. If you try it, let me know how it went!
