Welcome to my food and health blog
I am Marijana; a passionate foodie, hobby chef, and sports enthusiast from Germany, who is always on the lookout for new, exciting recipes, quality information relating to all aspects of health, and activities that contribute to a happier healthier lifestyle.
Years of reading articles on nutrition, trying out various diets, playing different sports, and also dealing with some chronic pain issues at a young age, have sparked my interest in nutrition and a healthy, physically active lifestyle. I love spending my time surrounded by tasty, nutritious foods, savouring intense flavors, creating great recipes, as well as being active.
Growing up in a wonderful family where meals were always cooked from scratch, I developed a natural relationship to food. Most recipes were simple traditional dishes from the Balkan with natural ingredients and no modern restrictions, such as paleo or gluten-free. Until this day, we enjoy cooking in a big kitchen and sharing our meals with all the food on the table in a cozy environment.
My diet does not fit into a box labeled vegan, low-carb, gluten-free or raw. Instead, I believe that nature has provided us with a huge spectrum of delicious ingredients that provide everything we need to nourish ourselves well and support our bodies.
My wish is to inspire you to join me on my food journey with healthy whole foods, flavorsome recipes and a balanced lifestyle.
I am very grateful for your inspirations, ideas and comments, as long as they don’t violate my code of honor*.
Enjoy my blog!
Be Merry. Be Green.
