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 & 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…

The BEST 10 minute Brownie Bites (Gluten Free & Vegan)

You know those moments where you open the fridge and stare for a few minutes in search of something, but find nothing so close it again, only to open it again five minutes later in hope of either some unexplained miracle appearance of the special something or noticing something that was previously unnoticed? This process…

Fresh & Fruity Fennel Salad

I’m not going to lie, I’m not a huge fan of eating fennel myself. I don’t like that aniseed flavour in anything, especially not in Turkish Raki or Greek Ouzo that I was recently introduced to through my travels. Perhaps it has something to do with a whole bottle of Sambuca I drank on the…

Spicy Salmon, Broccoli & Rice Dish

Those days you want something nourishing but without the fuss can be frustrating. It’s easy to just reach for something unhealthy in a rush and I know that feeling all too well but I’m on a mission to change that. Quick and healthy don’t often go together, unless you’re grabbing an apple to snack on….

Filled with Greens

Although I’m very health conscious and all about getting my daily fix of vitamins through food, I’ve never really got into the juicing trend. Don’t get me wrong, I love a fresh juice and will often order one along side my breakfast if I’m out or will make myself a smoothie for breakfast, as a…

Black Rice & Sweet Potato Salad

I’m a big fan of salads, especially when I’m in a bit of a rush to eat something fast, but I’m also conscious of making a salad interesting and thinking outside of the box. A salad doesn’t have to be a bowl of leaves. For me, it’s the chance to throw a bunch of goodness…

Simple Slaw

I have trouble getting the hubby to eat any kind of vegetable, he’s a typical South African man who loves meat, potatoes and a good sauce. Being married to somebody with such a different diet to my own is strange, sometimes tough, it’s frustrating but I’m used to it now. I just try to sneak…

Roast Butternut & Lentil Salad

It’s only the beginning of summer but it’s already super hot here in Greece. I’m feeling the heat, but would never complain because I’m happiest in the sunshine and by the sea. I’m also happiest when eating delicious, nutritious meals in the sun. When even the thought of the oven heating up my small galley…
