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 […]

RAW ALMOND & CHOC-CHIP COOKIES

An alternative to the ubiquitous bliss ball, these easy-to-make cookies are low-sweetener, dairy-free and egg-free, with a nutty protein boost. Perfect bite-sized treats to curb a sweet craving or provide some extra energy between meals. Speaking of energy, as I sit here editing this recipe (that I first drafted a year ago!), I find myself far more pregnant than […]

BERRY BURST BUCKWHEAT MUFFINS

With 6 days to go until baby 3’s due date, I am truly in full-blown nesting mode… and, for me, that includes food preparation (and eating 😀 ). I have had this recipe hanging around for some time now, but decided to modify it further. It now contains just 1 teaspoon of stevia granules for an […]

ALMOND WALNUT QUINOA-LA WITH FIGS & ORANGE SYRUP

A few years ago, on a whim, I bought a packet of quinoa flakes. With no specific recipe in mind in which to feature them, I ended up using them in a variety of baked goods, in place of oats. The results were surprisingly good and I became interested to experiment further. This quinoa-based granola (which […]

GREEN TEA CHIA PUDDING WITH LEMON & BLUEBERRIES (gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan… & delicious!)

GREEN TEA CHIA PUDDING WITH […]

MINI PUMPKIN PECAN PIES (quick, easy, IQS-style, low-fructose, gluten-free, vegan deliciousness in mini pie form!)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and relatives (and anyone else who may be celebrating today)! It was 2 years ago (and with a touch of trepidation), that I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving for the first time. Since then it has become a tradition for me to host a cosy crafting/seasonal eating event for my Stockholm […]

RAW VEGAN COCONUT CHOCOLATE PRALINES (with pistachios & spirulina)

Hi lovelies! I am posting this recipe due to requests I have received via my Instagram account (hi there, IG peeps!). The original recipe for both the coconut filling and raw chocolate coating is by the lovely SR Healthy Lifestyle, who was kind enough to allow me to recreate what was already pretty perfect, really. I wanted to make something that […]

SPICED CHAI SMOOTHIE WITH COCONUT CRUSHED ICE (pretending summer’s not over)

Firstly, I love chai! Secondly, despite my recent post mentioning some rather intense events that unfolded during a trip to India years ago, there were some truly wonderful moments too. Some of my fondest memories of India involve sipping chai with local people in the village where we ended up staying. The chai I drank there was always […]

SUGAR-FREE EASTER TREATS & BEETROOT RED VELVET CUPCAKES (for an IQS-inspired celebration)

It seems as though I am always in the midst of some kind of health-kick around the approach of Easter! Maybe it’s the masochist in me, but I’d prefer to think it’s simply a matter of loving the challenge of creative problem solving. Baking is a joy to me, especially on festive occasions. So, not to be deterred […]
