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…

Sake & Soy Braised Short Ribs, Ginger & Peanut Slaw, Basmati

I’m not the biggest meat eater, but I do eat it when I feel like it, or when I get hold of something special, or different, or, of course, if I’m taste testing. I just don’t generally put a hunk of meat on a plate, look at it and think that’s going to satisfy me….

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…

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…
