Asian Coleslaw

This blog is becoming more and more only about food I’ve realised…
But that’s cool ’cause what’s not to love about food right?

On that note:
Here’s a recipe out of the LEON cookbook I got for my birthday from my Dad.
Asian coleslaw // L.AlexandraI’ve made it twice and everyone loved it each time.
It’s great as a side or a starter.

For the Asian coleslaw you’ll need:
♦ 1/2 white cabbage, finely sliced
♦ 300g carrots, peeled and grated
♦ 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
♦ 250g Green beans, steamed and cut into small pieces
♦ 3 tomatoes, finely diced
Asian coleslaw // L.AlexandraI kinda just gestimated with the carrots, beans and tomatoes.

For the dressing:
♦ Limejuice
♦ Palm sugar (or brown sugar)
♦ Red chilli pepper, finely diced
♦ Garlic, finely chopped
♦ Coriander
♦ Peanuts, crushed

or you can be lazy like I was once and just use sweet chilli sauce, tastes great too!
Asian coleslaw // L.AlexandraMix all your ingredients together, I used my hands, pour over the dressing and you’re ready to go!
Or you could put it in the fridge for a bit before serving so the flavours can mingle and mix.

Dinner at Theater Spektakel

Another outdoor dinner tip but you gotta be fast, it’s all over by August 31st.
When we were little we knew summer was coming to an end and school was about to start when the Theater Spektakel was on.
It made for a great transition back to the routine life.

Post yoga Frau Gerolds Garten dinner

My sister and I have started going to yoga together.
Not only is this great because I love yoga but it’s so nice to do something together.
Thank you, Alina!
After our yoga class we struggled to think of a place to go eat. We walked all around the Viadukt but couldn’t find anything that would satisfy our hunger/cravings (what those were? No idea, we just knew what we didn’t want).

Birthday at Bar Basso

It was my birthday a couple of weeks ago and still now I sit here wondering about how time could pass so quickly.
I feel like I only just celebrated my 19th birthday and now I’m 23.
How?!
But it’s all uphill from here right?

Anyways enough worrying about time flying and more on enjoying the moment.
My grandparents came to Zürich to have lunch with me that day.

Yoga Paradise

I just came back from spending a week in paradise.
I don’t think I’ve ever felt so relaxed, energised and balanced in my life.

My Mum and I had booked a yoga retreat a few weeks back and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the day to see if it really was as beautiful as it looked on the pictures.
It was better.

Zening Resorts, you are paradise.

The flight to Cyprus was a bit of a hassle with a layover but it was quickly forgotten when we arrived and this was the view from our room:

Raw lime and blueberry ‘cheesecake’

Before you get all excited, this is NOT a cheesecake the way you’re imagining it.
It’s actually raw, vegan, gluten and dairy free.
Sounds kinda crazy and weird?
I thought so too at the beginning but it is surprisingly insanely good!
