NUT BUTTER BROWNIE TRUFFLE BITES (plant-based, gluten-free & low-fructose)

Call me crazy, but after much deliberation followed by a split-second decision, I started doing PIIT28 last weekend. If you’ve ever heard of Pilates enthusiast extraordinaire Cassey Ho, you probably know what it is. For those who don’t know, it stands for Pilates Intense Interval Training and is a 28-day fitness reboot that’s done in 28 minutes per […]

24 DAYS OF HAPPY, HEALTHY CELEBRATION (cut the stress, get organised & eat deliciously balanced this Christmas)

As I count down to my first Christmas as a mother of 3 in a brand new home that’s barely 1/3 in order, I am simultaneously overjoyed at how blessed I am and, frankly, a little overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of keeping 3 little ones (and myself) in festive mode throughout the month of December. […]

CHOC-MINT MATCHA CRUNCH BARS (with novelty Winterfell wrapper printable)

With literally minutes left to celebrate Halloween here in Sweden, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share one of the most requested recipes I’ve shown previews of on Instagram. Many people mistakenly thought I had purchased a “Winterfell chocolate bar” when I first shared it during #foodofthrones2016, which of course I was rather chuffed […]

CINNAMON & WALNUT BUNS (a vegan, refined sugar-free take on the Swedish Classic)

And I am back with another belated recipe share! This time it’s the Swedish fika favourite: cinnamon buns. But these are not made of the same buttery dough as the original, more commonly known kind. In fact, they are dairy-free. And if that’s not enough of a departure from the classic variety, these ones are also refined sugar-free. […]

EASY CHOCOLATE ORANGE BARK (a low-sugar alternative to Lindt Intense Orange)

A few weeks back, feeling like something a little more adventurous than my usual daily dose of plain dark chocolate, I decided to check out Lindt Intense Orange. The 85%-90% Lindt varieties are a staple in my home, so I have nothing against the brand, but was rather shocked to find that Lindt Intense Orange contains […]

30 MINUTES TO A VISITOR-READY HOME (an ongoing domestic challenge)

Have you ever heard the quote “You are your home”? Does it resonate with you in some way, making you feel warm and fuzzy… or slightly uncomfortable? We’ve been in the process of selling our home over the past few weeks and, amongst other things, it has meant a lot of cleaning, organising and sorting out and […]

30-MINUTE MOOD BOARD CREATIVE CHALLENGE (black & white)

The purpose of this post is simple. I receive many questions/comments about the subject of inspiration. If you saw my post about etiquette on social media, you know I believe that the more you exercise your creative mind, the “fitter” it becomes. I create mood boards ALL the time. In case you didn’t know, I’m an […]

BAKED BANANA “FRITTER” SPRING ROLLS & BANANA CHOCOLATE “CREPE” SPRING ROLLS

You may wonder why the words “fritter” and “crepe” appear in the titles of these recipes (and in quotation marks). The first variation is clearly not a fritter at all, as the banana is neither battered or fried, and the second variation is clearly not a crepe. Rather, both are inspired by food memories of […]

SWEET POTATO MINI NACHO BOWLS

Looking for the perfect treat to jazz up your Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday or Fredagsmys (roughly translates from Swedish as “Friday cosy time” :D )? I thought so! Now, before you get started making these delicious Sweet Potato Mini Nacho Bowls, please note that there’s the super-easy version, and there’s the “cheese”-topped version (which is also easy, but takes a […]

WHIPPED SWEET POTATO “CHEESE” DIP

Another “oldie” revisited! This time, it’s a super-easy plant-based spreadable “cheese “, perfect for dipping your favourite vegetable/corn chips or crudités into. The basic preparation technique I use for this is based on how I make baby food from sweet potatoes… which probably doesn’t sound very appealing😛 , but I promise you it’s fuss-free and, with a […]
