Clean Eating German Christmas Menu – Appetizer: Creamy Chestnut Soup with Pears

Christmas is around the corner (here, and everywhere else), and of course, holidays are a time of indulgence – and often that means gorging on lots of less-than-healthy foods.

Asparagus season is upon us! I love asparagus, and also like seeking out combinations beyond the usual asparagus + potatoes + hollandaise sauce.

Recipe: Stuffed Mushrooms with Spinach

When I came across some giant mushrooms in the supermarket a couple weeks ago, I knew I had to get them! I envisioned stuffed mushroom caps, but I didn’t know exactly what I would fill them with – which is unusual for me, since I always shop with a shopping list and plan my meals […]
