White Beans in Limelight

Hungry folks, how are you?
I am so sorry! When I logged onto my blog-account today, I had to confront myself with the shocking fact that it's been about two months since my last post! God, time flies, right?
But, good news, I am right at the beginning of long, hopefully warm and sunny, semester-holidays! 
And, believe me, I could really use them right now! I am (almost) totally yours for the time coming! (At least in nutritional terms)

Looking back on the last few weeks, I see an seemingly unending rollercoaster with tons of loopings, ups and downs (Although, when using this kind of metaphor I am never sure if the ups stand for the positive or the downs,  for on rollercoasters it is actually the downs you crave, is it not? Well, never mind.) and, well, I admit it, super-.unhealthy nutrition and little sport. 

But, guys, I am back on track with a huge bag of healthy recipes, a heavy workout-plan, soon-to-be muscle-aches and a soon-to-be Arnold-Schwarzenegger-Body (Be glad you do not see me, can the Terminator even cook?).

The recipe I created for you guys today shall manifest that impressingly. At least I hope so. I will from now on cherish the following foods:
*raw cocoa
Of course that means that you, hungry fellows, are gonna be affected by all this, too. But I promise you colourful, light, reviving and refreshing as well as inspiring summer-recipes!
Such as this super-healthy lunch here:

Cucumber-Avocado-Salad and Egg, topped with Coconut-White-Bean-Lime-Dressing and Curry-Agave-Roasted Cashews


1/2 cucumber in juliennes
1 boiled egg
1/2 avocado
1 handful cashews
100 g cooked white beans
1 dl coconut milk
1 lime, zest and juice
1 tablespoon agave syrup
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons cumin
salt, pepper


1. blend the white beans, 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin, coconut milk, salt, pepper, lemon zest and juice in a mixer
2. roast cashews with agave syrup, 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin and some salt
3. finely slice avocado
4. arrange the eggs on a bed of cucumber juliennes and avocado, top with roasted cashews and white-bean-dressing

See you, people! Say Hi to summer if you should happen to see him and send him over to Switzerland!
