The taste of vanilla that came out of the oven has already implicated that this cake would turn into my new favorite. Yet, I wasn’t half as good as it really tasted.

Sour rhubarb.
Vanilla.
Marzipany almonds.
Sour redcurrant.
Sweet stevia.
Bitter dark chocolate.

It was a taste explosion that happened in my mouth when having the first bite. The combination of almonds, spices and fruit fresh from my grandmother’s garden was more than heavenly.
This cake is a refreshing, light, yet filling one. Perfect for summer days on which you don’t want to eat those rich and heavy chocolate cakes.

2017 is going to be my year?!

Starting this year with a lot of motivation, I feel like life is so great at the moment. In autumn last year, I moved to Munich, started university, met a lot of new people and actually started a new and exciting chapter of my life.
I started weight lifting, I finally feel like my gut health is stable, my first exams went very well and in May I started this blog.
What an amazing start in 2017!

Last week, I started working to earn some money and collect experience. It is a bit time challenging and consuming to manage my life right now but I enjoy it so far.

So what is going to come next?

I definitely want to do some short trips after my exams in August. Perhaps visit Berlin and meet some amazing people I met on Instagram. I also wanna see my old best friends back at home again.
Apart from that, I’ll be working full-time while not having uni.
Another thing I want to do is getting a certified personal trainer.

What can you expect on this blog?

Blog-wise I want to provide you with more content. Of course a lot of recipes but also nutritional and fitness related post. For me it is really important to also talk about “tabu” topics and I want to focus on female topics such as hormones, periods and body image. And I want to introduce you to a lot of amazing personalities in my “talk with” series.
Youtube is also going to be a project. I’m thinking about filming some stuff like recipe videos, what I eat in a day, short workouts and perhaps even vlogs…

Definitely, let me know what you think about this in the comments below! Also don’t be afraid to wish for anything topic-wise.
