[Interview] Christopher Crell

  1. Tell us about yourself?

My name is Christopher Crell. I’m a chef, nutritionist and absolutely passionate about sports. Due to my passion for my job, I made it onto German television as a chef and nutritionist early on. I’m a chef and nutritional expert at Radio Frankfurt and published my first book, “Genussvoll gesund bleiben (Staying Enjoyably Healthy)” in August of this year.

  1. When/for what reasons did you become passionate about healthy food?

I developed my passion for cooking when I was a little boy. My father, who was actually a doctor, was a gifted cook. He enthusiastically cooked very elaborately at our house every Saturday evening. Here the schnitzel was beaten free and the Bernaise sauce was whipped up by hand. My father also had his own vegetable garden in which I was very happy to help him. I noticed early on that our freshly harvested organic vegetables and fruit were not only far ahead in terms of taste.
After my mother died early from cancer, I went into cooking training and I loved working with such fresh and sometimes exotic products. I quickly learned that food is much more than just food, but that it is full of valuable ingredients, which is why everyone has their natural pharmacy in their front yard. That’s why I started to study ecothrophology after my training.

  1. What is important to you when it comes to healthy eating?

I love fresh vegetables, fruit, legumes and nuts. Instead of a carbohydrate-rich diet, I value a nutrient-rich and balanced diet that is low in carbohydrates and consists of healthy fats and proteins in addition to vegetables and fruit.

  1. What role does Slow Juicer play in your culinary life?

I was initially skeptical about this new device. Today, however, it is impossible to imagine life without it. I’ve put almost everything I can get my hands on in the slowjuicer. Every day I drink fruit and vegetable juices from my self-sufficient garden in Portugal. However, the slowjuicer can do much more than just squeeze juices, which is why I use it several times a day in my house.

  1. What feature of the Hurom Slow Juicer excites you to use it in your kitchen?

To be honest, it’s not just one feature, it’s the many features that excite me about the Hurom Slow Juicer. In addition to my juices, I do great things with him, such as homemade low-carb pasta. You can conjure up lightness, great purees, sauces, even ice cream and fruit sorbets with it, for what would normally require several different kitchen appliances.

  1. What advice do you have for people who want to eat healthily?

I can only recommend everyone to avoid bad carbohydrates in their diet as far as possible. Here I am speaking largely of Industrie Zuckelt, wheat flour and products made from it, but also of renouncing rice and even potatoes. Just anything that would cause the blood sugar level to rise rapidly. Instead, they prefer to fill their diet with plenty of vegetables, legumes, nuts and fruit in moderation. Be careful where your food comes from, does not have to be transported far and is free of pesticides. Meat and fish is allowed, but also here make sure that the animals do not come from mass farming, that they were raised in a species-appropriate manner with species-appropriate nutrition and outdoors, free of pesticides and antibiotics.

  1. Please share some tips to make healthy food delicious.

Combine different tastes. See that you can bring all 4 taste buds into one dish. They would be sweet, sour, salty and bitter. If you manage to bring this into a balanced relationship and then give it a good mouthfeel by combining something soft but also crunchy in your dish, because then we cooks speak of a palate orgasm.
