Lentil Dahl with Spinach & Parsley (V, GF)

I always feel warm, nourished and satisfied after eating a big bowl of flavoursome curry. I also generally feel like I’m about to pop because I don’t have a stop button, but that’s neither here nor there. I’ve shared my recipe for a coconut sweet potato & chickpea curry before which is pure deliciousness and…

Roast Cauliflower, Tahini Dressing & Pomegranate

A new year and a new adventure ahead. Lots of exciting things are coming in 2020 and that has proven more than so. Exciting, daunting, whatever it is, it’s an adventure all the same. Veganuary – my first challenge of the year and I definitely enjoyed having an excuse to promote plant-based food and get…

C C C – Craziness

Before I get into what I came here to do, which is finally get back to writing and using this space for what I intended it to be for all those months ago that I started it, I feel it would be very bizarre if I didn’t take a moment to focus on not only…

Kitchari – the Ayurvedic cleansing bowl of goodness.

I came across Kitchari at the beginning of summer this year as I was approaching my birthday and experimenting with vegan, gluten free cake recipes. I was feeling bloated from all the taste testing and know that a juice cleanse isn’t suitable for my food-loving self, no matter how hard I try to convince myself…

Sweet Potato & Chickpea Coconut Curry (V, GF & Damn delish!)

The days are slowly getting colder here in France and storm season is in full swing. The nights are breezy and mornings come with a fresh chill in the air. In fact, the past few nights have been crazy windy and there’s a mistral on its way (the name for a big storm over the…

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Buddha Bowl

I love a Buddha bowl. What is it, I hear you ask. Well that’s the point I love so much! By my definition, it’s simply a bowl bundled with goodness. All kind of goodness. I suppose it’s whatever you make it and the options are endless. I love healthy food. I love colourful food and…

Home is Where the Heart is – The Côte d’Azur

They say there’s no place like home and it’s true. But what happens if you’re so nomadic that you don’t have a home? No set place to call your own. It’s a strange feeling, but home is in fact where your heart is. And I have to say, my heart is scattered in fragments across…

Wise Words that Stuck Like Glue

Even in what I wrote yesterday, I attested to the fact that I really should practice what I preach, but the reality is that it’s not always that straightforward. A while back, I wrote about my morning ritual and how great it is to have a mini routine to set me up for the day,…

Making Changes that are Scary

It’s so easy to fall into a rut in life and just continue along a path that we’ve started walking down simply due to the ease of the steps. The familiarity drives us to keep on walking and the comfort of knowing everything that’s there is second to none. It’s the simplicity of carrying on…

September Mornings – What I’m Eating.

The reality is that I rarely know what day it is. Sometimes I genuinely forget what time of year it even is. I may sound like a spoilt brat saying this but it does all merge into one when the sun is (almost) always shining and summer is seemingly endless. I’m not ashamed to admit…
