Chocolate Tahini Spread

Lifestyle, Recipes By June 17, 2017 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

I’m heading to Verona to guide the yoga on a weekend retreat and decided I would prepare and pack something made with love to share with the guests. We actually have to adhere to a special diet, no salt, no sugar, no wheat based products, etc.. (I tend to do this anyway) so I made this yummy spread. I actually…

Vegan PrOATein balls

Lifestyle, Recipes By May 29, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

There is a new protein bar on the market, called PrOATein and it’s a pretty healthy bar in comparison to most but it is made using whey protein, so I was inspired to recreate the bar into little balls since I had some rolled oats/oatmeal at home, I wanted to use them to share with members of my 3 local…

Steamed Purple Sweet Potato and Cocoa Rolls

Adventures By January 9, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Here in Thailand they still serve a lot of Chinese food, stuffed pastries and oddly enough, stuffed white bread with colourful filling – What’s inside, I do not know but I don’t want to try to find out. My friend likes them but I don’t dare to try them. I know the dangers of food colouring. Steamed buns are typically…

I hosted an event over the weekend for a guided meditation followed by a Mandala colouring event. I made an awesome playlist (which I will post a link to once I organize it on YouTube) and I also made some yummy treats. This was a bit of an experiment (like all my recipes tend to be) but it turned out…

Delicious Zucchini, Carrot & Coconut Corn Bread

I was invited to my neighbour’s Birthday Fondue Party and as a vegan, I knew I needed to prepare something for myself. I mentioned zucchini bread to my neighbour and she almost swooned so I figured that was a great option. I’ve never tried or ever made zucchini bread though, so I looked up a few recipes online to see…

Quick & Healthy Quinoa Breakfast

As someone who doesn’t eat meat, the first question I often get asked is ‘How do you get your protein’? The protein really is not a problem, I find it in all sorts of ways. Quinoa (pronounced: Keen-wah) for example is an excellent and complete source of protein that is incredibly nutritious. Here in Brazil, I bought myself some organic…

Brazilian Mango & Black Bean Salsa

I’m a huge believer in the importance of eating fresh, local produce. Now that I’m in Brasil, tropical fruit is abundant and as I face my fruit phobias I’m exploring flavours and today I actually used an entire mango and turned it into a delicious salsa. I think I always knew Brasil would be the place that I would have…

Tasty Tapioca Salad with Tangy Salsa, Black Beans, Coconut and Mango

Lifestyle By December 31, 2015 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I have been embracing the culture here in Brasil as much as I can within my own health restrictions… Tapioca is now on my food radar, I love it and although it’s a carb, it’s actually gluten-free so I’ve been enjoying it occasionally. I once made the mistake of getting tapioca from someone selling on the street. Needless to say,…

I somehow knew that Brazil would be the perfect place for me to face my fruit fear, a phobia that has stayed with me since my infancy and only in recent years have I began to explore my fruity palette. It wasn’t until I was in Buenos Aire 2011 that I actually willingly at my first strawberry (very slowly) nibble…
