In my channel “Grounded” I would like to show you how you can cook delicious and exciting dishes with insects yourself.
I’ll show you where you can get the insects, what alternatives there are, the processing and cooking with them.

My motivation for this channel is to motivate and inspire the German-speaking population to consume insects.
I am a trained fitness coach, who still regularly goes to the gym with a lot of fun. With a great understanding of healthy nutrition, it is important for me to eat healthy, balanced and protein-rich, as I often challenge myself intensively in sports. I love to try new things and to create different taste experiences. By cooking, I give my body the necessary building materials and enzymes for recovery and on the other hand, it serves to recharge my mental battery. There is no limit to my creativity when cooking.
