Homemade Bircher Müsli

It has become somewhat of a routine for me – lately, I always prepare my breakfast in advance in order to safe time in the morning. For that reason, I love to prepare bircher muesli, because it is easy, delicious and healthy at the same time! I always prepare a big bowl that lasts a whole week in the fridge and top it with fresh berries to get some extra freshness. To be honest, I normally mix the bircher muesli by feel and put in what I like at the time. Here’s a rough recipe: two parts spelt oats (I always take the fine ones, so it gets really creamy!) cranberries raisins dried apricots shredded coconut one fresh apple (cut in tiny pieces) a dash of cinnamon soy milk I mix all the dry ingredients and stir them until mixed through. Then I fill it up with soy milk so that everything is covered. Leave in the fridge over night and enjoy every day!

Tea-riffic!

I have always preferred tea over coffee my whole life – some think that’s really strange. Maybe it’s because I’ve always had a little ritual with my parents, to drink green tea on afternoons of weekends, which we often spent together. Also, tea is really about patience and worshipping the beverage itself. You’l boil the water, it needs to cool a little to reach the perfect temperature for that certain kind of tea and then it is poured and rests in its cup, steaming and warm… When we first tried fittea, we were surprised by the rich flavor of it. Especially, the „Inner Beauty“ tea, smelled and tasted exceptionally with its flavors of lady’s mantle plant, whitethorn, aniseed, raspberry leaves and fennel. Also the little pink tea filter swims happily in the cup and instantly puts a smile on our faces. In cooperation with Fittea

Healthy in Berlin: Superfoods & Organic Liquids

It is no secret that healthy food is big in Berlin. If you walk down Weinbergsweg in Mitte, you’ll find one organic food store after the other. Superfoods & Organic Liquids is one of them. The store is small but has a stylish interior and nice menu variety for the size of the café. I really liked that there were different fruit toppings to their bircher mueslis or chia puddings, either raspberry acai or mango. I can also recommend the coffee with a huge matcha or chocolate cookie on the side!

Sports Essentials

For us as dancers and sports junkies it’s always a challenge to find the right clothes to work out. They have to feel comfy, we need to move in them and they should look nice as well! There are not many sports brands that offer these kinds of sportswear. However, there are some brands we like. Lululemon usually have stylish sports bras and tops, we love Oysho’s sports collection and of course Nike is a classic.
