Das Sesambrötchen. As with German cooking, each region has its own specialties and variations when it comes to bread. Germany as a whole produces by far the most varieties of breads worldwide - over 300 kinds of dark and white breads and more than 1,200 varieties of rolls and minis (Brötchen & Kleingebäck). In the North, darker, heavier bread such as Roggenbrot (rye) is often preferred. Towards the South, lighter breads made of wheat become more popular. There are standard breads and rolls that are found all over the country. The most commonly used flour is rye, either on its own or combined with another flour, such as wheat or spelt. Other popular ingredients include oats, barley, roasted onions, nuts, sunflower seeds, flax and pumpkin seed, poppy and sesame seeds, cheese, bacon, herbs, garlic, and various spices.

I'm currently a college student & I don't want to eat food on campus all the time. Do you have any advice or ideas of how I could eat healthier? I bought everything I need to cook my own stuff. 😊

  • avocados avocados avocados!!! they are so satisfying + have so many healthy nourishing oils. i could live on them. just spread them on a rye cracker or corn cracker or whatever you fancy and sprinkle with sea salt + black pepper. so delicious. honestly. i eat this all the time! they healed my skin. and so quick and easy to make!
  • chickpeas salad (cooked chickpeas + raw pepper + tomato + cucumber + onion + garlic + grated beet + grated carrot + cooked mushrooms +  herbs (such as thyme and basil or anything that you enjoy!) + sprinkle of sea salt + black pepper + a lil bit of soya sauce + a lil bit of olive oil + a lil bit of balsamic vinegar + curry spices)… you don’t have to use all of these veggies, just whatever you have at hand and feel called to! don’t force yourself into something you don’t enjoy.
  • stir-fried veggies!!!! (anything at all! just stir fry it. i do stir fries all the time, almost everyday. and they are quite good if they’re at room temperature as well. just mix everything. i’ve been having this lately: leeks + pepper + tomatoes + mushrooms + onion + garlic + zucchini + eggplant + sunflower oil + soya sauce + paprika!!! + black pepper + lil bit of ginger (if you like spicy!!! i love spicy.) + cumin + dried garlic + sprinkle of sea salt. also, stir fried sweet potatoes (with black pepper + paprika + cumin + soya sauce) just on their own are so delicious! and stir fried or baked potatoes mmmm! with just a sprinkle of sea salt + black pepper. yum!!!! just follow your heart, warm the oil and throw everything into the wok + as it softens add the seasonings!)
  • wholewheat pasta + veggies (just cook the pasta, add tomato sauce + stir fry some veggies or cook them with the pasta + season everything.)
  • basmati rice + beans (cook the rice + veggies + add the cooked beans and season it as you please. so wholesome!!!! and endlessly satisfying.)
  • basmati rice + chickpeas + dark green veggies (so good + satisfying + wholesome + nourishing!!!)
  • raw salads (lentil sprouts are my favourite. sprout them at home, it’s so easy + so much cheaper + fills your soul. and then mix with lettuce + radishes + tomatoes + grated carrots + grated beets + avocado. corn is also delicious, i simply don’t eat it much because most of it is gmo. that scares me. if you find non-gmo organic corn then perfect, add that as well!!!) and nuts!!! almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds. i love them in raw salads. as well as sprinkled on top of rice!)
  • lentils curry + basmati rice with almonds + raisins + sesame seeds + coconut oil. yum!!!!
  • stir fried noodles!!!! i lived on stir fried noodles for months. i love them so much. just stir fry veggies on a wok + boil some water in a pot and cook the noodles or even just soak them for 3-4 minutes and then once the veggies are just about cooked + noodles are soft, mix them with all the veggies in the wok and stir fry them for a few minutes + perhaps add scrambled eggs… yum yum yum. i love noodles + veggies!!!!
  • diced melon or watermelon or cantaloupe or pineapple or mango or pear or apple or orange slices or sliced peaches or grapes!!! anything at all is always a great idea and so refreshing. 
  • dried mango as a sweet snack is amazing. also dried pineapple! like vegan gummy bears hehe.
  • salty peanuts (the ones that are just peanuts + oil + salt)
  • cashews!!! 
  • buckwheat + veggies!!!
  • millet + veggies!!!
  • raw red pepper stuffed with avocado + sea salt + black pepper!!! like a raw sandwich. so delicious. just thinking about it makes my mouth water…
  • hummus!!!! hummus is pure bliss. so good. i would just make hummus (cooked chickpeas + garlic + sesame seeds + tahini + lemon juice + olive oil + cumin + sea salt. blend it all. and then just slice lil bits of carrot. or pepper. or cucumber. anything at all. and dip it in the hummus… so good!)
  • tzaziki (greek yoghurt + cucumber + mint + garlic + sea salt + olive oil + lemon juice) and dip some veggies in it.

ah… sweetheart, just be creative! follow your heart. get a lot of goodness from a farmer’s market if possible and then just follow your intuition and whatever you feel like you want to eat, rather than forcing yourself to be healthy. eating is pure joy!!!! it is medicine. then put it all into a tupperware and take it with you. maybe make some herbal tea as well + put it into a glass bottle. or a smoothie. or just pure spring water. i hope this helped at all, sorry for the long ramblings hehe. i get excited when it comes to eating simple good veggie food hehe x x x x
