At this point I would like to present some of my favourite recipes and meals, which I like to cook from time to time. These include recipes of various vegetable cheese variations, casseroles, gratin, fish dishes and Logi recipes.
"Logi" stands for Low Glycemic Index, and describes a method for healthy nutrition up to weight reduction without starving. The aim here is to achieve a positive effect by minimizing carbohydrates (low carb) in the daily diet. Among other things, this is possible because simple carbohydrates such as simple sugars (e.g. glucose or fructose) are avoided. In contrast to the reduction of carbohydrates, the protein content is increased.
This is achieved by low-fat curd cheese and e.g. almonds and nuts, since these contain a lot of protein, and also valuable fats, minerals and fiber. With the following ingredients are quickly and easily very nutritious and healthy food prepared!
Our children love for example the stuffed tomatoes with spinach, although they are not necessarily fans of vegetables and Co. otherwise. 🙂 So just try it out, it tastes great!

Logi recipe for filled tomatoes with spinach and cream cheese

- 2 pcs garlic cloves
- 150g Creme Fraiche

Preparation: Wrap the tomatoes and put the inside of 2 of the 4 tomatoes in a bowl. Remove the stump. Heat the leaf spinach in a pan and drain the water that the spinach loses. Add the inside of the tomatoes, cheese and cream fraiche. Press and add the garlic cloves. Season to taste with a little pepper and salt. Heat a little while stirring.
Then pour the mixture into the hollowed tomatoes and cook in a preheated oven at 130 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Hint: Alternatively, you can use paprika peppers or aubergine instead of tomatoes. Also very tasty!
Logi recipe for the zucchini eggplant plate
- 1 Eggplant
- 2 Zucchini
- 1 Paprika peppers

- olive oil

With olive oil, just as with vegetables and all other foods, one should not necessarily save and rather use high-quality products. The best way to find out about the differences between the different olive oils is to search on the Internet.
Recipe for zucchini carrot gratin
This gratin variant is my current favorite when it comes to casseroles. Healthy, tasty and quickly prepared. Included are various vegetables such as zucchini, carrots and celery. These are mostly water, contain few calories, but important vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium.
Due to its high potassium content, celeriac has a diuretic effect and is often used for detoxification. Celery is also said to have a relaxing and calming effect. This dish is rounded off with egg, feta cheese, parmesan cheese and olive oil, which provide a lot of protein and healthy fats.
List of ingredients and preparation for the Zucchini-Carrot-Gratin
- 4 large courgettes
- 3 celery sticks
- 3 large carrots
- 200g feta cheese
- 70g Parmesan
- 3 Eggs
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 Chilli pepper / chopped herbs
- good olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to approx. 160-170 degrees. Cut the carrots and celery into small pieces and simmer them together with the whole courgettes in boiling salted water for about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse briefly with cold water.
Now the courgettes can also be cut into cubes. Now whisk the eggs in a large bowl and add the garlic, grated parmesan and feta cheese (crumbled into small pieces). Then season with salt and pepper and add the courgettes, celery and carrots. Add some chopped herbs and a chopped chilli pepper according to taste.
Pour the well mixed vegetable-cheese mixture into an oiled casserole dish and bake in a preheated oven for about 40 minutes until the desired degree of browning is achieved. Enjoy your meal!
Recipe for zucchini tuna pan
Yesterday we had a zucchini tuna pan for lunch. An ideal and easily digestible lunch, even on hot days. Tuna is a nutritious fish, which contains a lot of protein and healthy fatty acids, as well as vitamin E and iron.
This dish is complemented by zucchini, which consists mainly of water, but also magnesium and vitamin C. The whole thing is rounded off by some herbs, some olive oil as well as Mozzarella and some cream cheese.
List of ingredients and preparation for zucchini tuna pan
- 2-3 large zucchini
- 2 Tins of tuna (in own juice)
- 2 Mozzarella balls
- 4 tbsp cream cheese
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 onion
- Pepper and salt
- Some chili (e.g. chili powder)
First wash the courgettes, then cut them into medium sized pieces. Then finely chop the onion and some garlic and fry in a hot pan with olive oil. During this time, cut the mozzarella into small cubes. Now add the zucchini pieces to the pan and fry well while stirring occasionally.
Spice with some basil, salt, pepper and chilli and then add the tuna. Now reduce the heat of the stove a little. Now to the sauce: This results from the addition of cream cheese and Mozzarella. Add both to the pan, melt and stir. Finally season the dish with Balsamico and basil leaves and serve. Ready is a delicious low carb meal, enjoy your meal!
