We decided to have a little foodie chat with Lucie from WIN-WIN FOOD. She writes healthy recipes on her blog inspiring foodies to cook healthy but delicious meals on a regular basis. Her creativity in the kitchen is amazing for us, so we asked her a few questions about her blog, her inspiration and other food related topics.

Take a look and be ready to be inspired to cook healthy and full of flavors recipes!



What's the story behind your blog, WIN-WIN FOOD?

First of all, I have enjoyed cooking since I was a little kid and over time transitioned towards healthy recipes. The main reason I started WIN-WIN FOOD was that I saw many people around me wanting to eat healthier but struggling with it. They would eventually give up because they believed healthy food couldn’t possibly taste good (and who would want to live on steamed carrots for the rest of his life?). At WIN-WIN FOOD, I try hard to show how delicious, uncomplicated and time efficient healthy eating can be so that anyone can eat better without feeling deprived.

What inspires you to keep blogging regularly?

When I started WIN-WIN FOOD, I made a commitment to post a new recipe or article at least twice a week. That way my readers can rely on WIN-WIN FOOD for being a source of fresh content and trust that I’m not just going to ditch them for a month or so :). Building relationships with my readers has been the most amazing part of my blogging experience and I’m not willing to jeopardize it because “I don’t feel like posting this week”. In fact, I enjoy blogging so much that I find it hard to imagine such a situation anyway.

 

You write healthy recipes. Where do you get your inspiration from?

To be honest, I’m not quite sure :D. I do have my favorite blogs and cookbooks I read but in the kitchen I typically end up ignoring the recipes altogether and whip up something completely different. I try to use seasonal ingredients as much as possible so those are a source of inspiration for sure. However, my recipe creation is mostly a chaotic process where this little switch just clicks inside my head and I keep chopping, mixing and tasting until something comes out of it. Most of the times it turns out great, sometimes it doesn’t :D.

You are from Czech Republic but you live in Germany. Are there any similarities between these two cuisines?

So many! Both cuisines are based on hearty, meaty dishes and use lots of the same spices. And neither can be labeled as particularly healthy :D. They even have some typical dishes that are almost identical, such as the Schnitzel. Although there are dishes specific to each country – I have never heard of Germans making Plum Dumplings for example.

 

Do you have a favorite cuisine?

Hmm…not really. I love all Mediterranean cuisines but the more I learn about Thai, Japanese or Indian cuisines the more I enjoy these too. And there are many more I have yet to discover!

 

What's your favorite healthy dessert?

Any fresh fruits I can get my hands on. Especially various berries and cantaloupe. I am very uncomplicated that way. If I were to pick an actual recipe though, it would be Chocolate Covered Katie’s chocolate fudge pie or my lemon poppy seed pie.

Are there any ingredients you can't stand or you never use?

I absolutely hate cilantro. Not quite sure why, I just can’t stand it. Whenever a recipe calls for it, I substitute it with parsley.

 

What was the first dish you ever cooked?

Does licking my grandma’s cake batter bowl count as cooking? I guess not. In that case it would be Czech potato pancakes. I remember annoying my mother with this recipe from a children’s cookbook I got from the library. Finally, she gave up and helped me make it.

 

What advice would you like to give to young women who want to eat healthy meals on a regular basis?

Start making the changes right now. Don’t wait for tomorrow or for next week. You don’t have to make drastic changes all at once, just one step at a time. Slowly swap unhealthy ingredients for better alternatives, add a little extra veggies to you dinner or snack or a protein bar instead of Snickers. You’ll be surprised how easy and delicious healthy meals can be!
