Grab a hot pot of coffee and unleash your inner coziness afficionado

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 (e.g., fewer calories, healthier ingredients) 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 (as long as we don’t do it 24/7). Healthy living is about body AND soul and therefore we should treat ourselves sometimes.

Well-being becomes a whole different ball game when you are a parent, as we rightly put our children’s needs before our own. Therefore, Mareike’s Cozy Corner provides tips for moms to take care of their bodies in the year 0 (the year you became a mom), since we can’t go to the Target Service Desk and request a replacement if our current body fails us. Furthermore, this site gives you hands-on inspiration on how to handle living with your tiny tribe, from budget-friendly baby solutions and money saving hacks, to practical “How-to”- guides.
