Healthy Vegan Ragù alla Bolognese

I’ve gone absolutely crazy over pastas in the past month or so. I’ve been trying out some really cool healthy pasta dishes for me and my family to enjoy. I can now honestly say that pasta, when made in the right way, can be a great dish even during the hot summer months. I’ll definitely be sharing many of these recipes with you in the coming weeks.

For as long as I can remember I’ve always enjoyed a good bowl of spagetti bolognese, but ever since I changed my dietary habits, I somehow lost interest in it.…

Minty Chickpea, Spinach and Avocado Salad with Cumin Dressing

If you’re anything like me and don’t really feel like eating heavy meals on a hot day, then this salad is just what you need.

This chickpea, spinach and avocado salad is an absolute favourite at the moment. I just can’t get enough of it. It’s a delicious meat-free salad, which still encompasses some great plant-based protein. It works great either as a light dinner or as lunch or even as a side dish. It’s pure health on a plate, and what’s great is that it’s so easy to make.…

Sweet Potato Pizza (Gluten-free, vegan)

Here’s a recipe for you with what I feel I’ve hit a gold mine. I often try out different types of pizza bases, some with more and others with less success. It’s hard to find the perfect gluten-free pizza crust, but this sweet potato base is the nicest I’ve had to date.

Sweet potato is a surprisingly nutritious vegetable. It’s a great source of vitamin B6, C and D, iron, potassium and magnesium. It’s naturally sweet but its natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.…

Healthy Gluten-free Pizza

Let’s be honest, we all crave pizza every now and then. But there are some really healthy ways to satisfy those cravings. With the right ingredients, pizza can be an excellent food to eat and something that the whole family can enjoy.

I know that the ‘it’ thing at the moment is to make a pizza base from cauliflower. But honestly, if I eat pizza, I want it to taste like pizza. That’s why my gluten-free pizza base is comprised of a mix of almond and buckwheat flour, eggs and olive oil.…

Spinach Soup with Quinoa and Boiled Egg

Having been born and raised in Finland, I’m very familiar with spinach soup. Every Finnish person has had spinach soup at one point in their life. It’s a traditional food served at home, in schools and even in restaurants. Traditionally spinach soup is made using dairy milk, butter and some flour, but I of course make it using ingredients suitable for my gluten and dairy-free diet.

I’m a real soup person. I think you can encapsulate a lot of flavours in soups, be it hot or cold.…

Buckwheat and Beetroot Risotto

I keep reading about the amazing health benefits of beetroot. It’s now officially gained name as the new super food. And what makes beetroot particularly great is the fact that it’s such an everyday food. It’s inexpensive, it can be bought all year round and it’s a great source of essential vitamins that our body loves. And in light of that, I bring you my buckwheat and beetroot risotto. I love coming up with new and fun recipes out of ingredients I love, and for me this is just that: a delicious and wholesome dish that just works.…

Salmon and Spinach Bake with Sweet Potato Mash

I really love salmon. It’s definitely my favourite fish. It’s packed with amazing omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins A, B, E and D, and it’s considered a very high quality protein, making it an excellent source of all essential vitamins and nutrients required for sustaining a healthy body and mind.

I really wanted to share this recipe with you because it’s just too good to keep only to myself. Even my two year old is crazy about this dish. So let’s get to it.…

Kale Meatballs: Twist on a Classic

I think I’ve finally found a perfectly balanced diet. For me that means no gluten, dairy or sugar, and more plant-based foods and lean meats and fish. I think we all have to learn to listen to our bodies in order to know what suits us best, and for me it definitely means having meat and fish as a part of my diet.

People often ask me, what diet do I exactly follow. If I had to put a label on it, I would probably say that I focus on plant-based foods, but I do also include fish, chicken and lean beef in my diet.…

Crustless Vegetable Quiche with Turmeric (no gluten, no dairy)

I’ve always liked quiche, but after making adjustments to my diet, I haven’t been able to eat it. So I really wanted to find ways to enjoy this favourite dish of mine without compromising my diet in any ways.

We all know that typically the quiche crust is made with flour and butter and the filling consists of milk, cream, eggs and cheese. As I don’t eat any gluten or dairy, I had to think how I could make my own healthier version of this classic pie.…
