Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hi, my name is Steffi, I am 30 years old and work as a nutritionist in Zurich. I have been fascinated about nutrition for as long as I can remember and eventually chose to study nutrition. I love being able to help others and get them excited about healthy food. Because healthy eating really doesn’t have to be boring! Sports and regular exercise also plays a huge role in my life – it makes me feel great and is a great stress relief.
What will we always find in your fridge/pantry?
I can never have enough fresh fruits and veggies stocked up in the fridge.
What will we never find in your fridge/pantry?
I say no to all ready-made products like sauces, salad dressings and dips. I prefer to make them myself!
What is your workout routine like? How often do you workout and what exercises are your favorites?
I’m a major sucker for mountain climbing. I practice indoors about 2-3x a week and try to go climbing in nature whenever possible. I’m also a big fan of yoga and try to squeeze in a practice whenever I can.

Favourite healthy foods? Can you share a recipe with us?
I love my dessert, so I always make sure I have some of these date brownies around the house.
- 200g dates
- 200g almond flour
- 100g raw sugar-free cacao
- A bit of water
De-seed the dates, cut into small bits and cover with boiling water. Let this sit for a while before blending in a mixer. Now mix the ‘date paste’ you just made with the almond flour and cacao. If necessary, add a bit of agave. Pour the mixture into a flat form and even out. Leave to cool in the fridge for 4 hours. Remove from the fridge and cut into brownie-sized bits. And voila, no baking necessary! I like to decorate mine with a bit of coconut flakes before serving.
