I either get them from Alnatura, Spielberger or the ones in the yellow package from Koelln :)

Anonymous has said: Hi Lissi! Would you say it's hard to be a vegetarian in Germany? I'm Polish & it's difficult, because meat is eaten often and there aren't many tofu/soya products or nuts here. How would it be in Germany? Loads of happy vibes from Poland x

Being vegetarian is not hard at all here! You can find nuts, lentils, seeds,  et cetera in every supermarket and most of them also sell tofu and other meat replacements, soy milk, other plant milks, soy yogurt, soy cream. There are organic supermarkets all over Germany and they have a huge variety of vegan/vegetarian groceries.
Most restaurants have at least one vegetarian option on their menu and even if they don’t you can still ask for something without meat.
I never have any troubles! :) 

"If Americans reduced their meat consumption by ten percent, enough grain would be saved to feed sixty million people."
- John Robbins (via vegan-veins)

Nein, nutritional yeast ist Nährhefe. Trockenhefe ist Hefe in einer anderen Form, aber ich glaube nicht, dass man damit die Soße machen kann :/

You can find my recipe on my recipe page :) can’t link you to it as I am on my phone!

Anonymous has said: I started running because of your blog and it makes me happy thank you:)Sadly my therapist thinks I should be careful because I don't have my period yet but still I am on a healthy weight. But when I run I feel much more relieved, its much easier to eat and I like the feeling that I 'have to' eat more (strange, I know :( )Maybe its wrong that I began wanting to run every day because I struggle more on days I don't. Why is it so hard to differentiate? How did you get sure it didn't get obsessive?

Hey! I’m happy to hear you discovered the joy of running. It really is one of the best ways to relieve stress and to feel great about yourself.

You need to be sure you are exercising for your health and happiness, not to burn calories or to feel in control. Running every day is a lot and you should set yourself a limit. Tell yourself you won’t run more than two or three times a week for ~30 minutes and stick to it!
I also made sure to run different routes nearly every time so I wouldn’t be able to compare my runs and obsess over it.
Don’t run so you can eat more, but eat more so you are able to run! Your body needs more fuel when you exercise, otherwise you might get sick, injured or lose weight again/not get your period back anytime soon.
I would keep the intensity and volume pretty low and only increase once you feel better mentally. And always be honest with your therapist! x
