click Let’s be honest, each and every one of us has a sweet-tooth, at least occasionally. I’m not crazy about sweet things, but time to time I do like to have something sweet. I’ve always loved baking, and currently I mostly bake for special occasions and for my kids. Having said that, it’s very important for me that my kids follow a healthy diet from an early age. I believe that when you introduce healthy eating to your kids from the beginning, they will naturally eat healthy later on in life as well.…
How many of us actually know which minerals and vitamins are the most important ones for maintaining good health? I personally wasn’t that aware or educated on these things. It wasn’t until I got pregnant that I wanted to broaden my knowledge on matters of the health.
buy calcium carbonate online For those who don’t know that much about selenium or who have never even heard of it, let me tell you briefly why it’s so important for us and what happens to the body if it’s running low on this mineral.…
It’s the New Year again and while I welcome this bright new year with much open arms, I do steer clear from any notion that I should be planning out the coming 365 days for myself.
I’ve never been one for resolutions. I simply don’t believe in them. I think life is meant to be lived in the present moment, in the now. Who can know with certainty what the coming year will bring with it? For sure not me. And if I would start making resolutions and promises to do this and to achieve that, I would already be living in the future and putting burdens and pressure on myself and making my life feel rigid.…
Hello everyone and beautiful and summery greetings from Cyprus! I’m currently on my third trimester and nearing the end of a long stretch. While time has passed by so quickly, I can’t tell you that giving birth definitely could not come any sooner, as I am eager to start feeling better again. The morning sickness (or more like all-day sickness) has returned and I’m having to struggle day in day out with constant nausea and a general feeling of being unwell.…
Hello again, everyone! I know it’s been a very long time since my last blog post, but please hear me out, I have a very good reason.
The last three months have been the toughest three months I can remember. Not only have I been taking care of two growing toddlers, but I’ve also been carrying a new baby in my belly. That’s right, I’m pregnant again.
Today marks week 15 for me and I’m still experiencing the worst morning sickness ever.…
This summer has been all about healthy side dishes and snacks, both sweet and savoury. We’ve been using the barbecue non stop, so I’ve had the pleasure of focusing on nice and refreshing foods to have on the side of grilled chicken, fish or vegetables.
This butter bean and chilli spread is a recent favourite of ours. It’s such a delicious add-on to grilled chicken for example or raw or cooked vegetables. I’m totally hooked on it.
Makes one bowl:
1 can butterbeans / 250 gr
1 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 lemon juiced
0.5 dl water
1.5 tsp ground paprika
1.5 tsp ground cumin
1/3 tsp cinnamon
Chilli flakes (with care, but enough for a kick)
Dried garlic milled
Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until fully smooth.…
I remember a time when I used to always find some energy balls in my fridge. But now it’s been a while since the last time I made some. I somehow needed a break from them for a bit. But this weekend I felt like making a batch again. I didn’t want to follow my usual recipe but to rather change things around a bit in order to try something new and fresh.
So I came up with these raw lemon and vanilla coconut balls, and I have to say that they turned out amazing.…
My apologies for my recent silence. It’s been pretty hectic with the kids during the past few weeks. Trying to keep two little ones happy in 40 degrees Celsius is not always easy. But I think we’ve finally found our pace in our new home in sunny and extremely hot Cyprus.
And that brings me to what I wanted to share with you today. Now, I have very long hair, which unfortunately often tends to be on the drier side. So what happened to my hair when we moved from Paris (which is mostly cloudy and cool) to Cyprus (which has 326 sunny days a year)?…
I’m a real sucker for Christmasy flavors and scents and I often create combinations, which could be mistaken for something that belongs to a Christmas table, when in facts it’s the middle of summer. I just love the mix of various spices, like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and clove, especially when you use them with apples.
Now, let me share with you my delicious, easy-to-make, super healthy, gluten, dairy and refined sugar free apple and cinnamon loaf, which could be served as a cake with coffee, as a snack (my kids love it) or even as breakfast (I love it).…
People often ask me how to incorporate as many different vegetables into one dish as possible, without it having to be a vegetarian stew. So here’s a little insight as to how I like to combine different vegetables with meat. I really love this dish. It’s become one of my favourites. It’s healthy, super fast to make and really tasty. I think it’s a perfect dish for summer. I hope you love it too.
