Winter Spinach, Couscous & Sweet Potato Salad

Another one of those days where I look into the fridge and need to find something to eat! And then this delicious winter salad was the result! The additional plus was that I also had some finger food for the baby 😉

Healthy Salmon & Edamame Buddha Bowl

The wonderful Christmas and Advent time is over and after all the delicious temptations something light and healthy is just what you (or at least I) need for a good start to the new year. A former salad, that is now fancily called buddha bowl is the ideal solution.

Fried Salad with Soft-Boiled Egg & Bacon


Some time ago I stumbled over this interesting way of preparing salad. What I like is the fact, that it’s a light dinner, easy to prepare and still you have something warm in your tummy on these colder days heading towards Christmas (and all the deliciousness that goes with it). Works really well with a fried egg too! Give it a try!

Asian Veggie Stir-fry


Here goes another weekday dinner idea. Fairly simple to prepare, you just need a few of the typical sauces that Asian dishes nearly always include. In the end you have a nice and light dinner alternative, easy of course also to add meat, if you feel like it.

Lettuce Hearts with Meatballs, Avocado & Dates

With the nice weather outside I really crave a healthy lunch or dinner. My fridge still had a bit of minced meat left, so I thought I might aswell prepare a salad with meatballs! It turned out really nice and due to the fact that meatballs are delicious warm and cold, it’s great to prepare.

Mango Mozzarella Salad


A dear friend once showed me this very simple  but mouthwatering salad. With me having an obsession with mangos at the moment (or always), it’s a super fit. You can also add pomegranate seeds or avocado – whatever suits your taste buds on that day. But the pure original version is my absolute favorite. Perfect all year round, but especially in summer.

Lambs Lettuce with Sesame-Seed Crusted Tomme à la Crème Cheese

These little miniature cheese packs caught my eye in the supermarket and I thought to myself – what could I prepare with these cuties? And guess what? My favorite kind of salad with creamy cheese that was liquidy inside. Very nice!

Tuna Salad


Summer is here and the weather is super nice and hot here. But what is best to eat in these temperatures? I suggest this very easy to prepare tuna salad. Ideal to take to the swimming pool or Badi (the swimming baths around the Zurich lake) or as a light evening meal, combined with lettuce hearts (to dip!) or with Pita bread (or normal bread of course).
