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…

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…

Chocolate Coconut Baked Banana Bites

Lifestyle, Recipes By February 29, 2016 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

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…

Holy Guacamole

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…

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,…

Creamy Vegan Chocolat Chaud

One of my favourite memories about my visit in Paris was sitting on a patio with my friend who was travelling with me and we were sipping on a glass of white French wine, when two guys at the next table began to chat with us. We eventually joined tables and I couldn’t take my eyes of the chocolat chaud…
