GRILLED NECTARINE & AVOCADO PIZZETTAS (and some reflections on anxiety)

As summer creeps back in (thank you, Sweden*!), it’s time to celebrate with family, friends and perfectly summery festive food! These pizzettas are a take on my popular Nectarine & Avocado Toasties of a couple of years back. Made simply with Mexican pita breads and cashew cheese, they’re a light, simple lunch or wholesome addition to your […]

VEGAN SPICED BUNS (with orange zest & nuts)… + a little announcement

Before I get to the recipe for these yummy buns, I will share both a sneak preview of the buns themselves and my news… simultaneously (two birds, and all of that!). I hope this goes some way to simply explain the reason why I have not been so active in the blogosphere recently. Thankfully the pregnancy […]

CUCUMBER LIME SODA WITH FRESH MINT

Just 4 ingredients (+ water, of course) and zero sweetener; the perfect way to rehydrate after an active day… especially now that it’s finally starting to warm up a little in Stockholm. My kids love this drink (they are big “bubble water” fans!) and particularly like scooping out and eating the cucumber ribbons once the water […]

I QUIT SUGAR… AGAIN! (IQS 8-Week Program, weeks 3 – 8 in review)

Hello friends! I have been meaning to post a review of my last round of the IQS 8-Week Program for a couple of weeks now, so before this truly becomes “old news”, let’s get right down to the nuts and bolts of it, shall we? WHAT I ATE   Week 3 kicked off and, despite being at the […]

A LITTLE CHRISTMAS COMPETITION (+ many thanks and lots of love)

*This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your interest!* The winner, as determined by “hat draw”, was Gallivanta of silkannthreades and her post featuring her Mio Mojo bags can be found here: https://silkannthreades.wordpress.com/2015/01/14/5859/ ‘Tis the season to give back*. That’s what I think, anyway!

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 […]

I QUIT SUGAR… AGAIN! (IQS 8-Week Program, weeks 1 & 2 in review)

Right at the very last minute, literally a day before the registrations closed for the new round of the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program, I found myself not only signed up, but appointed an IQS Ambassador* by the IQS team! I hardly ever check personal mail at work (and never Facebook), but I happened to log in […]

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 […]

MISS MARZIPAN’S JAVA CHIP FRAPPU-CHIA-NO (a healthy, sugar-free, protein-packed, vegan, paleo-inspired, frosty mocha smoothie you can make at home!)

It took a long time for a certain coffee chain from Seattle to reach Sweden’s shores and, for many years, the highlight of my time spent sitting in airport transit areas was the rare opportunity to sip on a coveted Frappuccino. When I started becoming Pinterest-obsessed a few years ago, I noticed many a DIY take on […]
