A new year, a whole new beginning

It’s always a time to sit and reflect as the festive season flows into the background and a new year rolls around. For me, it’s never a time to sit and make meaningless resolutions that I’ll never stick to but more of an opportunity to reflect on the past twelve months, look ahead to the…

A rambling of Gratitude

There’s a huge gap on happenings of life lately on this page, but that’s because every time I’ve written about it, my emotions got the better of me and in this case, it’s probably something for me to keep in my private archives rather than publicly posting about. Although I’m always happy to share the…

A rollercoaster.

I know I could just go back and look, but that would require energy and that just feels too much right now. But I don’t even know when I last posted on here, or sat down to write for that matter. I just know it’s been a while. A long while… Life has been a…

Berry Crumble Bars (GF, V)

Back when I first cut gluten and dairy out of my diet, I was on a major mission to find the best sweet treats that would satisfy my sweet cravings. I made something similar to this back then, but then found a juice bar that also had a gluten free and vegan bakery section producing…

Banana & Walnut Muffins (GF, DF)

I was talking to a friend the other day about “healthy” treats to replace the sugar filled ones so readily available as she’d asked for any recipes to curb sweet cravings on a new low sugar thing she’s trying. I sent over a bunch and suddenly realized that if you’re on that train and don’t…

Turkey (or Chicken) Burgers

I’ve gotten quite into baking my own bread recently, whether that’s because I’ve had time on my hands or because I’m no longer in France where I dare not even compete with the boulangeries, I’m not sure, but either way I’m a woman on a mission. I got a delicious recipe for white rolls from…

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…
