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…

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…

Lemon Polenta Cake (Gluten & Dairy Free)

This is one of my go-to cakes when I’m craving a bake for myself. It’s gluten and dairy free, so full of moisture, only a little bit full of guilt and so tasty. I’ve made a version of this a handful of times and tweaked the recipe ever so slightly each time, but think I’ve…

My Favourite Dairy Free Alternatives for Savoury Dishes

As I’ve said before, I am not “vegan” and I don’t pretend to be. I am, however, lactose and gluten intolerant which stemmed my love for getting creative with food in the first place and have since grown a love for all things plant-based. I’m not the biggest advocate for replacing cheese with “cheeze” as…

Fuel for the Day – Chia & Coconut Overnight Oats

When I was in England this winter, I reluctantly had to trade in my favourite morning ritual for something more winter friendly, so I stopped buying bananas in an (unnecessary) abundance and bought only enough for the few days ahead. I no longer had a need to keep a stash in the freezer for my…

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…

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…
