Welcome to my cozy corner! This site is all about living a healthy, happy life. You will find inspiration for breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes here that are either a healthy tweak on a naughty-but-nice meal favorite or my own ideas for nutricious food. Mareike’s Cozy Corner, however, also features soul food, as I strongly believe that in order to truly live well, we need to allow ourselves to indulge without regrets. Healthy living is about body AND soul and therefore we should treat ourselves sometimes. Since life is more than just good food, this site also gives you hands-on inspiration on how to handle living with your tiny tribe (aka being a parent) and DYE wellbeing tips for a happier and healthier you.
