WELLNESS & WANDERLUST WEDNESDAY with featured holistic nutritionist & intrepid traveller, Lana Jankovic

JUST GO! If holistic nutritionist and passionate life-lover, Lana Jankovic, doesn’t inspire you to want to step away from your computer, venture out into the wilderness and embrace whatever comes your way, I am not sure who will. An intrepid explorer, wordsmith and natural by example-style inspirer, it feels pointless to try to sum up in […]

WELLNESS & WANDERLUST WEDNESDAY with featured fitness expert, Diana Tencic

Welcome to the first of a series of posts featuring fabulous individuals (some of my favourite people!), their inspiration and insights into some of my favourite subjects: wellness, wanderlust, food and travel! I couldn’t think of a better person with whom to begin this dialogue than long-time connection, friend from afar and I Quit Sugar super-star expert […]

KICKING SUGAR TO THE CURB (some myths busted + a giveaway spot on the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program)

**UPDATE** The competition is now closed and the winner was drawn fairly (live on Snapchat) and randomly using a random name picker tool. Congratulations @dromvittran and thanks so much for the interest everyone! I wish I could give you all a place on the program. For those who are interested in joining this round, it’s […]


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 […]


Many of my recipes are super simple, like my 3-ingredient plant-based caesar salad dressing. And this recipe is actually based on that very one, made in a pinch in order to have something to dress my asparagus & roasted sweet potato toasted sandwich the other day. And, as this is an extremely short recipe, I’ll keep this post […]

HOMEMADE MULTI-SEED CRACKERS (my mother-in-law’s dairy/gluten-free “secret” recipe!)

I received many requests for this recipe when I first shared these crackers on Instagram, but I had to secure the go-ahead from my mother-in-law before sharing. Well, just in time for Swedish midsummer picnic time, here it is… and I promise that you will not regret giving this recipe a go! A few years ago, my […]

CHOCOLATE & FENNEL LACTATION COOKIES (gluten/fructose/dairy-free & IQS-friendly… with no brewers yeast)

Before I launch into this post, I feel compelled to state that I am hesitant to call this recipe a “lactation cookie” recipe, even though it is based on the standard lactation cookie principles (sans brewers yeast). Firstly, there’s a deliciously unusual cookie flavour profile made up of low-sugar, gluten/dairy-free ingredients and a recipe that’s customisable… and thus is […]

CHUNKY MONKEY BANANA BREAD GRANOLA by I Quit Sugar (+ a Healthy Breakfast Cookbook review from a veggie perspective)

Prior to Oliver’s arrival, I was given a copy of the Healthy Breakfast Cookbook by I Quit Sugar and had the opportunity to test some of the recipes (and do a little make-ahead meal prepping too before I headed for the maternity ward!). With the next round of the 8-Week Program about to kick off (registrations close in just a few […]

SUPER GREEN MATCHA MYLKSHAKE (+ a Food of Thrones Weeks 2 & 3 recap)

As those of you who read my previous post or follow my Instagram account know, the Game of Thrones-inspired creative food challenge known as #FoodofThrones2016 continues. And with it have come the inspired creations of connections new and old/far and wide. Instead of begrudging the week that stretches between episodes, I now genuinely look forward to seeing what others will come up with. […]
