Health, Nutrition, Recipes By January 3, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , , , , No Comments

This little kale recipe has been one of my go-to’s when I want a nice side or a base salad for a main dish. I served this at both the Merry Very Veggie Party and the Holiday Healing party and each time it was a huge hit, but since this is such a common recipe for me I almost forgot…

I’ve been serving this a lot lately at my meet up events and eating it like crazy everything I make, salads, bowls, sandwiches, avo toast… and it seems like it’s so exotic until you realize the recipe is so easy. Especially since I’veĀ  been making a lot of vegan cashew cheese lately, this really only makes sense to me. I…

Many people come to me and ask about high protein breakfasts that are plant based and one of my personal favourites is using chia seeds which is known for it’s super food properties and complete protein profile and it’s the little seed that could. So I say, Choo-choo-choo-choose Chia seeds!!! They do need to be soaked or ground in order…

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…

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…

I made this recipe the other day because for the first time I bought steel cut oats and wanted to give them a try. I thought it might be nice to make a banana loaf or something along those lines, and I didn’t really look at any recipes but I just mixed some ingredients I had into a pot and…

Now I’m in a small pueblo called Chapala (about an hour away from Guadalajara, Mexico) visiting my father. It’s a cute little town and suprisingly has quite a bit to offer. The other day we went to an organic market where I picked up some delicious ingredient’s and some sprouted tortillas, vegan apple bread, vegetables, samosas and various flavours of…

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…
