Stuffed Avocado – Israeli Style

Stuffed Avocado Salad Israeli Style

Today I wanted to show you a healthy stuffed avocado recipe. Something savory for a change! 
Avocado is simply such a wonderful invention. There are so many different things to make with it. 

To start off this is actually a vegetarian stuffed avocado version. Now that I think of it, it is actually completely vegan! As I am writing this it is actually World Vegan Day. So what a perfect coincidence for such a healthy recipe. 

Stuffed Avocado Salad Israeli Style

My inspiration for this recipe

I got inspired for this recipe on my trip to Tel Aviv, Israel last year. We ate a lot of the famous typical salad there! Israeli salad is a chopped salad of finely diced tomato, onion, cucumber, and bell or chili peppers. It has been described as the „most well-known national dish of Israel“, and is a standard accompaniment to most Israeli meals. What I really love about this salad is the unique Cilantro taste. You will learn how to make it in a bit. It is super easy and inexpensive to make. 
Since I am here in Panama now and there are avocados around every corner I wanted to try this recipe with a slightly new twist. I know there are a lot of bakes stuffed avocado recipes, but I have tried baking them and honestly I am just not the biggest fan of it. So I came up with this salad dish thats perfect for a side of your lunch or dinner. 

Israeli Salad 

First we start by making the salad. You really just need a couple of very basic veggies. The only exotic ingredient you need – and that is a must for this recipe – is the Cilantro. Because of this it gives the salad this very specific aroma! 

Stuffed Avocado Salad Israeli Style

Next you take your veggies and chop them up super thin. Little cubes work best for the tomatoes and peppers. I used an orange and a yellow pepper because like this I got so many different colors for the salad. To be honest I am not sure why, but I somehow forgot to put the cucumber on the picture. Therefore, you will also need a cucumber! 

Stuffed Avocado Salad Israeli Style

Once you chopped up everything and have a nice rainbow of colors you can throw them all together into a big bowl and mix them up. After that it is time to season your salad. This is super simple, since the Cilantro will give it most of its taste. Finely chop up the Cilantro and mix under the veggies. Next take the juice of a lime and mix again well. Add salt and pepper and ready is your Israeli salad. 

Stuffed Avocado Salad Israeli Style

The rest is pretty simple. Take your avocado and carefully cut it in half. Take out the big seed. With a spoon take out a bit more of its flesh to fit more of the salad in there. Now fill it up with your Israeli salad and its all ready to be served. As simple as that ­čÖé 
Now I know you will be left with a lot more salad than you can fit into the avocado. They avocado really just serves as the eye catcher. You can always fill it up again with the remaining salad or just keep snacking out of the bowl! 

Stuffed Avocado Salad Israeli Style

Fitness Food

Most importantly the recipe is really healthy. It is filled with so many important vitamins for you and on top of that totally low carb. This is even a keto stuffed avocado recipe! If you eat this with some chicken breast it is the perfect fitness meal. Just be careful with the avocado as it obviously does have a lot of fat. Healthy fat though ­čÖé 

I really hope you enjoyed this savory recipe. If you are looking for another great low carb recipe I can really recommend my zucchini pasta. In case you are in the mood for something sweet why not check out my carrot cake bars. Also you can hit up my YouTube for more recipe videos.

Low Carb Birnenkuchen mit Mandeln

Low Carb Birnenkuchen

Wir haben einen gro├čen Birnenbaum im Garten. Ende September ist hier immer Erntezeit und dann haben wir meistens so viele Birnen auf einmal, dass ich gar nicht wei├č was ich alles damit machen soll. Ihr habt bestimmt schon mein Birnenfleckrezept gesehen. Das war eine tolle Art sie zu verarbeiten. Nun habe ich aber dieses Low Carb Birnenkuchenrezept entwickelt. 

Low Carb Rezepte

Ich versuche mich ja haupts├Ąchlich low carb zu ern├Ąhren. Es ist eine Ern├Ąhrungsform die mir pers├Ânlich sehr gut tut. Ich vertrage Kohlenhydrate oft nicht gut und bekomme dann immer einen aufgebl├Ąhten Bauch. Deshalb versuche ich immer so gut es geht sie durch andere Zutaten zu substituieren. Dieses Mal habe ich Mandelmehl und geraspelte Mandeln statt dem herk├Âmmlichen Weizenmehl verwendet. Ihr k├Ânntet es aber auch mit Kokosnussmehl versuchen, das sollte genauso funktionieren. 

Birnenkuchen low carb

Kooperation mit Kenwood 

Dieses Rezept habe ich ├╝brigens in Zusammenarbeit mit Kenwood Austria entwickelt. Kenwood hat mir als PR-Sample eine K├╝chenmaschine zugeschickt. Den kMix in schwarz. Meine allererste K├╝chenmaschine ­čÖé Diese musste ich nat├╝rlich gleich testen und somit habe ich dieses Birnenkuchen Rezept f├╝r euch entwickelt. 
Ich bin wirklich ein gro├čer Fan von Kenwood und ich sage das jetzt nicht nur weil ich von ihnen eine K├╝chenmaschine bekommen habe ­čśÇ Seitdem ich denken kann steht bei uns eine Kenwood K├╝chenmaschine im Haus und sie ist noch kein einziges Mal kaputt gegangen. Die Qualit├Ąt ist einfach wirklich ehrlich unschlagbar und ich freue mich so sehr jetzt selbst so eine tolle K├╝chenmaschine zu besitzen. 

Birnenkuchen low carb

Birnenkuchen Rezept

Im Grunde ist das Rezept, wie alles was ihr hier auf diesem Blog seht, sehr einfach. Ich zeige euch nun Schritt f├╝r Schritt wie ihr ihn nachmachen k├Ânnt. 

Die Zutaten

Ihr braucht nur 6 Zutaten um diesen Birnenkuchen machen zu k├Ânnen. 7 wenn wir den Zimt z├Ąhlen ­čśÇ Also wirklich keine Hexerei. 

Birnenkuchen low carb

Hier die Liste:

3 St├╝ck Eier
150g Xylit oder Erythrit
200g Magertopfen
100g Mandelmehl 
50g geriebene Mandeln
1 TL Zimt
3 Birnen 

Die Zubereitung

Ihr startet mal damit die Birnen zu waschen. Danach habe ich die Eier zusammen mit dem Erythrit in meinem neuen Kenwood Mixer schaumig ger├╝hrt. 
Als n├Ąchstes gebt ihr den Magertopfen zur Eimasse dazu. Danach werden langsam das Mehl, die geriebenen Mandeln und der Zimt dazu gemischt bis eine sch├Âne homogene Masse entsteht. 

Low Carb Birnenkuchen

Birnenbelag

Nun kommt die eigentlich Meisterleistung dieses Rezeptes. Wir werden die Birnen jetzt wundersch├Ân am Teig auff├Ąchern damit wir ein sch├Ânes Muster bekommen. Also weiter im Rezept: 

Befettet eine Springform und f├╝llt die Mandelmasse ein. 
Schneidet die Birnen in d├╝nne scheiben und legt sie kreisrund auf die Oberfl├Ąche der Masse. 
Nun kommt der Kuchen f├╝r 40 Minuten bei 180┬░C in den Ofen. 

Low Carb Birnenkuchen

Ich hoffe ihr konntet anhand der Fotos erkennen wie einfach dieser Birnenkuchen ist. Es dauert wirklich gerade mal 15 Minuten alles zu machen. Was ich an den Mandeln im Rezept so liebe ist die saftige Konsistenz die sie dem Kuchen geben. Dieser Kuchen geht nat├╝rlich nicht auf wie er mit Weizenmehl w├╝rde. Aber mich pers├Ânlich st├Ârt das gar nicht. Ich mag das wenn es so fudgy bleibt. 

Birnenkuchen low carb

Enjoy!

Caramel Protein Cheesecake – low carb and keto

Ready to taste the best protein cheesecake of your life?! With this blog post I am sharing my all time favorite recipe with you ­čÖé

Protein Cheesecake 

My protein cheesecake consists of some very easy ingredients and gives you the full dessert indulgence you are looking for without adding those extra calories to your hips ­čśë 

I am literally making this protein cheesecake once a week because it is that good. The wonderful thing about it is that you only need a couple ingredients and it is so easy and fast to make. like most of my healthy recipes. 

protein cheesecake

Macronutrients of the protein cheesecake 

First of all, I am sure you are wondering why this cake is so much better than regular cheesecake. Obviously since we are not using any sugar the taste will be a bit different than the unhealthy options you get to eat in restaurants, but the macro nutrients are sooo much better. 
A lot of people always think that in order to make fitness food you need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen and buy many expensive ingredients. That is not the case at all though, especially not with my recipes. They usually never take longer than 15 minutes and the end result will be tasty and good for you at the same time. 

Calories

Did you know that a regular New York Style Cheesecake has about 450kcal per slice? For some girls that could be a regular meal for them. If you go to the Cheesecake Factory and order yourself a Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple cheesecake you might end up eating up to 1100 kcal per slice. That is crazy right. I bet you are curious how many calories this healthy protein version of a cheesecake has now?! 
So this one will have only about 250kcal per slice depending on the exact ingredients you use. That is quite a difference right?! You can save almost half of the calories you would usually eat with a normal cheesecake. 

Protein

Let’s go back and compare our fitness protein cheesecake to a regular New York Style cheesecake regarding the amount of protein you will get per slice. Usually one slice only provides you with around 9 grams. However, due to adding protein powder this fitness cheesecake has up to 31 grams of protein per slice, depending on the whey you are using. 

protein cheesecake

Protein Cheesecake Recipe

Alright after having told you how awesome this protein cheesecake is I hope you are totally ready to make it now. 
It is really so easy. All you need are basically two bowls. In the first one you mix all the ingredients for the filling and in the second one all the ingredients for the base.
Then you press the base into a pie form or silicon mold and pour the filling over it. After that it goes into the oven and you let it bake for about half an hour. Take it out and let it cool off completely. For the glaze you will be mixing more cream cheese with Xylit and simply cover the cheesecake with it. Finally melt some dark chocolate and sprinkle over the cake. In my recipe I used a sweetener called Yacon syrup for decoration as well, since it has the looks and subtle taste of liquid caramel. But that is not a must. 

protein cheesecake

Low carb protein cheesecake variations

Certainly in this very specific example I made a caramel protein cheesecake. I used specifically caramel protein powder and Yacon syrup which is quite similar to caramel. However the base recipe always stays the same and you can substitute the flavors as you want. 

Here are some ideas for cheesecake variations: 

  • Strawberry protein cheesecake: You can use strawberry or vanilla whey for the filling. Use sugar-free jam to cover the surface of the cake and decorate with sliced strawberries. 
  • Peanut butter cheesecake: Add 2 tbsp of peanut butter to your filling and more peanut butter for the topping. 
  • Blueberry cheesecake: check my recipe from earlier at the beginning here!

Life Update

On another note I thought to give you a short life update in this blog post. At the moment I am super busy planning everything for my big trip starting at the end of September. I will be going to Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico.
Alberto and I will be traveling through these countries, but working at the same time. It is the first time we are doing this and are simply so excited to try it out. It is so amazing when your work is that flexible and I really just need my camera, computer, phone and internet.

However, there is still so much travel preparation to do and I am getting more and more excited every day to finally leave and escape the cold and windy Austrian fall days. 
Also, I need to come up with a plan of how to take most of my food props with me on my travels. This will be quite the challenge, but we will see how it goes to take food pics somewhere else than at my studio at home.

Zucchini Linguine with feta cheese

Zucchininudeln mit Ziegenk├Ąse

Its zucchini time in our garden right now and since I always love to make seasonal recipes and use the fruit and veggies that are currently ripe and ready for my recipes I came up with this amazing low carb dish for you!

I am sure many of you have heard of zucchini noodles and you might think that you need to buy a special spiralizer for it. No need my friend. In this blogpost I will show you how easily you can make your own zucchini noodles just buy using your regular kitchen utensils. 

Zucchininudeln mit Ziegenk├Ąse

Why I love vegetable pasta

I am always looking for ways to replace simple carbs like pasta with a better gluten free and low carb substitute. Making pasta out of vegetable is simply a genius invention and zucchinis are perfect for it. Using zucchini as your base you will be saving so many calories and carbs from a meal, but still get the full taste and pasta experience in my opinion. 

How to make Zucchini Linguine 

What you need to do first is wash your zucchini and dry them up. Then use a normal vegetable peeler and peel thin slices from the zucchini. Like this you will get your Linguine. 
Then you will need to boil them in hot water for just 3-4 minutes, so they wont get too soft. It really isn’t that much more work than making regular pasta. You will see! ­čÖé

How_to_make_zucchini_noodles

Regarding the sauce for your zucchini linguine you can let your creativity run free. I used low fat cream cheese (which I put in after I took the photo – doesn’t look so pretty mixed up with the cream cheese) and then just threw some fun veggies in there. I topped it off with feta cheese dices. 

Zucchini Linguine with Feta

The recipe

  • 1 big zucchini
  • 40g feta cheese
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp low fat cream cheese
  • salt & pepper

With a vegetable peeler carefully peel thin slices off the zucchini. Boil them in salt water for 3 minutes and strain well. Put them back into the pot and mix in the cream cheese, salt and pepper. Cut the feta cheese into small dices and mix under the zucchini pasta. Put on a plate and decorate with small cherry tomatoes.

Enjoy! ­čÖé

I hope you enjoyed this light summery low carb pasta creation and will try making it yourself soon. Btw, have you seen my healthy low carb salads? No?! Well then, click here!

What I love most about the summer is the wonderful barbecue season! It is so easy to eat healthy and not miss out on the tasty barbecue goods. You guys asked me to make more savory recipes, therefore I would like to share two of my new go-to low carb barbecue recipes with you. 

I discovered shrimps to be the ultimate hit regarding the perfect summer barbecue. So, I experimented a bit with different shrimp variations, also pairing it up with pineapple in my second recipe. 

May this summer celebrate slow, delicious, lazy days and simplified living. Let’s read long books, stay up late drinking wine with friends and stroll our local farmers markets, slowing life down enough to taste its sweetness. Here is to backyard bungalow get-togethers, shrimp barbecues, long sunsets, beach picnics and getting back to nature!

  • 100g of tomato

Summer Barbecue Recipe

Pineapple Barbecue Shrimp Skewers

Okay I admit this is a crazy creation I very spontaneously made up when I had leftover pineapple sitting in my fridge. Usually I am not the biggest fan of combining sweet and sour taste into one dish, but this one is actually pretty great and I was surprised myself! 

Ingredients: 

  • 200g pineapple 
  • 100g shrimp 
  • 100ml water
  • 1 tbsp of honey 
  • pinch of salt 
  • 1 lemon

  • wooden skewers

Method: 

Cut the pineapple into nice rectangular pieces. Dissolve the honey with some water and at the juice of a lemon. Add a pinch of salt. Let the shrimp and pineapple soak in it for about 15 minutes. Take some wooden skewers and put alternating pineapple and shrimp on it.  Place skewers onto a barbecue grill until well done on both sides. Cut rosemary into small pieces and sprinkle over the skewers. Serve while still warm.

Cucumber Summer Salads

Cucumber Feta Salad

I absolutely love summer for being able to eat the most amazing and creative salad creations. It is just so refreshing and healthy! Lately I have been experimenting with cucumbers, as I feel like their neutral taste lets them mix perfectly with all kinds of different things. Thats why I came up with this delicious cucumber summer salad! 

In this blog post you will find two of my new and favorite cucumber salad creations. They are both so extremely easy and fast to make, look beautiful and taste delicious. 

Cucumber Summer Salad

I found feta cheese to harmonize perfectly with the subtle sweet cucumber taste. This creation is the perfect summer salad and the perfect addition to every lunch and dinner meal. All you need is a cucumber, some feta and tomatoes. I used a spiralizer to make cucumber pasta – works amazingly well! 

Make sure to let the cucumber noodles sit for 15 minutes because they will loose a lot of water. Drain the noodles and mix them with tomatoes and feta. 

Regarding the dressing I always used simple balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. 

Cucumber Feta Salad

Cucumber Melon Salad

The second cucumber salad variation is very similar to the first one. The only difference this time is that I replaced the tomatoes with watermelon. I found this combination of sweet watermelon and tart feta cheese to taste extremely delicious. This is really the perfect summer salad with its tropical vibes and sweet taste.

Now with the barbecue season this is really the perfect side dish to impress your friends with! Definitely something different and I think they would love it. So make sure to give it a try!

Again all I did was mix 1 cucumber with 50g of Feta cheese and 100g of watermelon. Dressing was: white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. 

Feta Watermelon Cucumber Salad

I hope you enjoyed these light summery cucumber creations and will try making them yourself soon.

Low Carb Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če – ohne Zucker

Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če

Leichte, flaumige Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če lassen die Herzen w├Ąhrend der Erdbeerzeit h├Âher schlagen. Dieses etwas leicht abgewandelte Rezept vom beliebten Klassiker ist reduziert in Kohlenhydraten daf├╝r aber umso mehr reich an Protein.

Springe zu Rezept

Fitness Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če

Heute m├Âchte ich mit euch mein absolutes Lieblingsrezept teilen! Meine low carb Fitness Topfennockerl!
Als Food Bloggerin wird man oft gefragt was denn sein Lieblingsgericht sei. Hier lautet meine Antwort immer: Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če. Ihr m├╝sst wissen, dass ich einfach so ein Strawberry Addict bin. Gerade im Juni verbringe ich den Gro├čteil meiner Zeit am Erdbeerfeld und der Name Carina Berry kommt auch nicht von ungef├Ąhr ­čśë 

Erdbeerso├če

Meine Erdbeerliebe

Ich liebe Erdbeeren einfach weil sie so unglaublich gesund und gut f├╝r den K├Ârper sind. Die kleine Frucht hat so viele N├Ąhrstoffe und Vitamine. Sie haben sogar mehr Vitamin C als Orangen. Da sie aus 90% Wasser bestehen sind sie auch super kalorienarm. Ich esse meistens fast ein halbes Kilo am Erdbeerfeld und das sind gerade mal 160kcal. Erdbeeren enthalten krebsvorbeugende sekund├Ąre Pflanzenstoffe was sie auch zu einem super Krankheitsvorbeuger macht.

   Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če  

Wie normale Topfennockerl zu Fitnessnockerl werden

Okay wieder zur├╝ck zum Rezept. Also normalerweise werden Topfennockerl ja mit 20% Topfen, Br├Âsel und Gries gemacht. 
Jedoch nicht bei mir. Ich konnte nat├╝rlich nicht anders und habe diese Zutaten durch bessere Alternativen ersetzt. Mit dem Magertopfen spart man einiges an Fett und Kalorien ein. Statt Br├Âsel und Gries verwende ich Proteinpulver und Kokosmehl. Hier habt ihr einen erh├Âhten Proteingehalt und spart euch einiges an Kohlenhydraten. Zucker habe ich nat├╝rlich auch keinen verwendet. Stattdessen arbeite ich bei diesem Rezept mit Erythrit – ein nat├╝rlicher Zuckeralkohol. Falls ihr das nicht zu Hause habt, k├Ânnt ihr auch Xylit (Birkenzucker) nehmen. Der hat auch schon 40% weniger Kalorien als normaler Zucker. 

Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če

Auch die Erdbeerso├če mache ich ganz nat├╝rlich. Oft wird hier ja nochmal extra Zucker dazugegeben. Ich mixen einfach nur die ganzen Erdbeeren und fertig. Die schmecken schon ganz nat├╝rlich einfach so wundervoll, da braucht man nicht noch extra Zucker. ├ťbrigens mache ich dieses Rezept im Juli dann auch oft mit Himbeeren. Schmeckt genauso gut ­čÖé 

Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če

Die low carb Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če macht ihr am besten mit zwei L├Âffeln. Das Wasser muss hierf├╝r unbedingt schon kochen und gebt nie mehr als 3-4 Nockerl gleichzeitig in den Kochtopf. Wenn sie oben schwimmen sind sie fertig. Wenn ihr sie l├Ąnger kochen l├Ąsst werden sie etwas fester und gr├Â├čer.

Topfennockerl mit Erdbeerso├če

Das Rezeptvideo

Das diese Fitness Topfennockerl mein absolutes Lieblingsrezept sind, konnte ich es mir nicht nehmen lassen und hab es sogar f├╝r euch abgefilmt, damit wirklich nichts schief gehen kann und ihr ganz genau seht wie einfach und leicht es zu machen ist ­čÖé

Low Carb Filled Zucchini

Today I would like to share one of my favorite low carb recipes with you. Let’s make some low carb filled zucchini – perfect for your fitness diet! 

This is super easy and fast to make, doesn’t have a lot of calories and is perfect if you are on a low carb diet. I was even eating this while I was on my ketogenic diet. It will provide you with clean protein and good fiber through the zucchini.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like to fill zucchinis but you can also use sweet potatoes, pumpkin, peppers or whatever veggie comes to your mind. Lately I have been seeing those awesome round zucchinis. They look so cute and are the perfect size. 

What I also like about this recipe is that you really don’t need a lot of ingredients or time to make it. You literally just throw everything together in a bowl and fill the zucchinis with it. 

But lets jump into the recipe:

Keto Bounty Bars – a low carb snack!

Keto Bounty Bars

Since I am currently on a keto diet, which is a very extreme form of a low carb diet, I wanted to share one of my favorite sweet recipes with you. When you are on keto it is seems to be quite hard to still satisfy your sweet tooth, however, with these delicious low carb keto bounty bars you won’t even miss the real sugar!  <3

My take on a keto diet

Being on a low carb diet can be quite tricky. Especially when you are trying to eat something sweet. On a ketogenic diet especially you have to cut out most of your carbs and replace them with fats. These tasty keto bounty bars will provide you with a good amount of healthy fats from the coconut. Your nutrition intake should be somewhere between eating 60-70% fat each day. Research says proteins should take up 25% and carbs only 5%.

The longest I have been on a keto diet was for 5 weeks. It has helped me tremendously to fix a bacterial problem I had in my stomach as the bacteria was survived by eating carb. Once I cut out all the carbs I was able to starve the harmful bacteria and was fine again. So a keto diet can actually have great health benefits. I would not suggest this diet to be your general way of eating though. I find it to extreme and at some point I believe your body will be missing valuable nutrients you get from eating fresh fruit for example.

How to make keto bounty bars

So, this is another really easy recipe. As you know my recipes usually don’t take longer than 15 minutes and this also a really quick one – no cooking skills required!

First you start out by making the filling. Simply put all ingredients together and mix well until you get a crumbly mixture. It should be moist and stick together. Shape the filling into little bar shapes and place them on a baking sheet. Let them harden in the fridge for 2 hours. They should be really cold when you take them out! You can even put the keto bounty bars in the freezer for a bit so they will harden faster.

The next step is to make the chocolate coating. The darker your chocolate is the less carbs you will have. Of course a 99% dark chocolate also tastes bitter. I usually shoot somewhere between 75 and 80%. 

Melt the chocolate in a medium heat proof bowl. I usually do it in the microwave because it is faster, but if you want to do it the proper way then melt it over the steam of boiling water or at 45 degrees in the oven. I like to add a bit of coconut oil to my coating so it is easier to distribute over the keto bounty bars and also hardens better after.

Take out the cold bars from the fridge or freezer and dip them into the chocolate. Let the superfluous chocolate drip off the bars and gently place them on the baking sheet again. If you want you can sprinkle them with coconut flakes now. Best you let them cool in the fridge again for another hour. 

You see how easy this recipe is. Done are your easy keto bounty bars. ­čÖé I hope you will try this low carb recipe soon!
