Ernährung Pt. I – Ein Anfang

Lange habe ich überlegt ob ich das Thema Ernährung hier ausführlicher auf dem Blog aufgreife. Schließlich ist das Feld einfach riesig und ich keine Ernährungsexpertin. Dennoch habe ich mich seit geraumer Zeit immer mehr damit beschäftigt, was ich in meinen Körper “packe”. Bekanntlicht heißt es ja: du bist, was du isst. Und das Ernährung sich entscheidend auf den Körper, den Geist und unsere Emotionen auswirken kann, ist ja schon länger bewiesen. Wer kennt es nicht, das “hangry”-Gefühl wenn man mal wieder nichts zu Essen in der Nähe hat und dann schlechte Laune bekommt? Vielleicht haben einige jetzt den ultimativen Essensguide erwartet, jedoch muss ich euch diesbezüglich leider enttäuschen. Denn ich habe zum Teil selber noch nicht die absolut richtige Ernährungsweise für mich gefunden. Seit einer Woche habe ich begonnen meine Lebensmittel zu listen um eine Übersicht darüber zu bekommen was mir welche Nährstoffe gibt. Denn viel zu oft habe ich mich schlapp gefühlt, schnell wieder hungrig oder auch mal Appetitlos. Bereits nach fünf Tagen ist mir aufgefallen, dass ich deutlich zu wenig Eiweiß zu mir …

Musikvideo-Dreh für Subway To Sally

Durch meine Zeit im Studio Marita Erxleben in Potsdam hatte ich über die Jahre die Möglichkeit an vielen spannenden Projekten teilzunehmen. So auch im letzten Herbst gemeinsam mit der Band Subway To Sally. Gestartet wurde am Drehtag sehr früh am morgen. Treff war bereits 7 Uhr vor Ort da das Konzept für das Video den ganzen Verlauf eines Tages widerspiegeln sollte. Da wir das Video erst Ende Oktober gedreht haben, war es zu dieser Zeit noch dunkel bzw. wurde es sehr langsam hell. Angekommen ging es gleich in die Maske, denn die ersten Aufnahmen mussten vor Sonnenaufgang im Kasten sein. Zu Beginn waren die Temperaturen leicht frisch, zum Glück hatten wir haben einen lauwarmen, sonnigen Tag erwischt für den Dreh. Im Oktober auch nicht selbstverständlich. Zur Mittagszeit gab es dann eine kurze Pause und wir wurden mit Sandwiches, Kuchen, Obst und vor allem Kaffee versorgt. Auch wenn es kein Problem war den Morgen früh aufzustehen, irgendwann kommt das berühmte Mittagstief. Die warmen Sonnenstrahlen konnte man nun auch kurz genießen. Nach der Mittagspause ging es dann …

Personal Issue: Why we sometimes have to fail.

To fail feels like a no-go in todays society. Even though its strongly connected to our development and part of our evolving personality. I feel its totally natural to sometimes fail and to grow with this setback. Failure is strongly connected to weakness, lack of willpower and imperfections. When people fail to reach their goals it’s often dismissed as something they have to blame on themselves. Therefore it’s primarily linked to your own strength, your overestimation. Fear of failure has become a catalyst for many other problems because we rarely accept  to make mistakes ourselves. We intend to be perfect or to become perfect since the image of being full field is the one of being perfect. Perfection is everything. From our appearance, the way we talk and how we integrate into society. We don’t want to be blamed on something or feel ashamed in front of others. We don’t want to show our weakness or let our true inner disappointment be displayed to others. We are supposed to be clever and assertive individuals who …

Café in Potsdam: What Do You Fancy Love?

In Berlin already widely know, you can now also find a What Do You Fancy Love? in Potsdam’s city center. The opening took a little longer than expected. But now you can finally enjoy some fresh pressed juices and various bagels in the Dortustraße. The café is similar furnished and designed like the ones in Berlin, they certainly sticked to their concept of laid-back, simple interior.The first weeks after the opening I still wasn’t so keen on trying it out but figured on a beautiful Sunday the time was here. The coffee and the juice were good. The bagel of my friend was slightly overloaded with cream cheese which made eating it a little tricky (cream cheese squeezing its way out and all over the hands). In total its a nice place to meet with friends to enjoy a coffee or juice. Even though the quality of the coffee wasn’t that outstanding, I would only come back for the juices. Nevertheless you can absolutely enjoy some free time outside during these summer days.     …

Lunch in Potsdam: Restaurant Urwaldblick

Since the 1st of December we have a new lunch spot in Potsdam. The Biosphäre Potsdam, whom we have already worked together for a C&A collaboration, is now offering a new lunch menu served at their Restaurant Urwaldblick. The benefits of this? You can now also enjoy a delicious dish here without having to buy a day ticket for the whole complex. Meaning, you can just come and enjoy a good lunch. The restaurant serves international and seasonal dishes, which can be enjoyed under the palms trees of the venue. The restaurant is located on the second floor of the tropical complex and offers an in- and outdoor terrace plus an air-conditioned indoor area. Luckily we had the chance to try their new concept and menu on the opening day. They offer a weekly changing lunch menu as well as a fixed one. On that day we all went for something from their lunch menu and were really happy with the outcome. Along the main dish we had a seasonal soup. I tried the halloumi …

October Inspiration

Autumn is one of the seasons we really love. The light (when the weather allows it) is so magical when the sun goes down, the leaves are beautifully colored and cuddling up on the sofa becomes casual. Oh and don’t forget the hot chocolate here. Plus, Halloween is coming our way. Excitement level? High! And we guess no other month than October represents autumn so accurate. We therefore have put together a little inspiration post for you, featuring our favorite pieces and states for this month. The weather is changing daily, the spices of our food gets a make-over (craving for that pumpkin-ginger soup) and our wardrobe becomes more comfortable.

Coffee in Potsdam: Kellermann

Since a long time I was craving for a cute coffee spot in Babelsberg, the area I spend quite a lot of time since the studio in try with is located here. There are many bakeries around but they don’t serve delicious coffee. Close to the subway station there used to be this super tiny coffee store where only two people would fit in to order their beverage. But it was worth the wait since the coffee was super delicious here. And then, someday, it was closed. I was really devastated since I just loved to grab a coffee to go here. A few weeks later a bigger café opened a few meters away and I instantly recognized that it was the same owner. They enlarged their business and now have a big café. This made me super happy and of course I wanted to share the new Kellermann with you. Besides some delicious coffee you can enjoy some fresh baked cakes, sandwiches, frozen yogurt and ice pops. They also offer fresh soups and quiche …

Breakfast in Potsdam: BioBackHaus

Sometimes you just need a quick breakfast spot in town where you can enjoy a good coffee and some on-the-go snacks. The BioBackHaus ist located in the center of Potsdam, really close to the Dutch Quarter (a sight-seeing sensation in Potsdam). Back when we went to school, we quite often dropped by and got a bread roll or a piece of cake here since it was just around the corner from our main building. They serve bio products produced in Berlin and Brandenburg. Mainly they have focused on baked goods but for their breakfast offer they also have yogurt with fruits, scrambled eggs and cold cuts. The buns, bread slices and cake pieces are really delicious and also perfect to take-away. Of course the price range is a little higher than at a normal bakery but sometimes you can afford to get something here. Come here early in the morning on a sunny day and enjoy your coffee outside, sun-bathing including. Price $$$$$ // Service ☆☆☆☆☆ // Location ☆☆☆☆☆ // Taste ☆☆☆☆☆ no wifi available …

Dinner in Potsdam: Mea Culpa

I can easily add Mea Culpa to one of my most favourite places I have ever been to. The restaurant is located in the heart of Potsdam, right on a street corner. They serve delicious Spanish food, especially their tapas are worth a visit. You can choose between cold and warm served tapas. I highly recommend to share them so you can order a variety of tapas. One pot is filled pretty well, perfect for sharing, and most of them include garlic. So, make sure you all have some and your appointments afterwards aren’t coming too close. Besides their delicious food you should definitely try their mint rosé spritzer. It’s super refreshing and gives the whole setting an extra holiday-feeling. Make sure to reserve a table before dropping by. They are highly requested and most evenings fully booked. Then you also need to wait a little until your food is ready. Advice for spontaneous visits? Go there either for lunch or during the early afternoon, then the chances are higher to get a table without …
