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…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

Crunchy & Delicious Quinoa Salad

As you know from my last post, my love affair with quinoa began when life threw a curveball at me and my health years back and I’ve loved creating different dishes with it over the years. I’d never ventured into a ‘health shop’ before I found out I was gluten and lactose intolerant. All I…

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…
