POTATO & RED PESTO PIZZETTAS WITH ROCKET

Short on time? I empathise! So here’s a short post and a quick recipe. Yes, I am back with another pizzetta variation. And once again the recipe title probably suggests this isn’t pizza in any traditional sense. But if you’re on the search for something tasty, simple and a little different, why not give it […]

PEACH & STRAWBERRY MUFFIN BAKED OATS (+ a couple of foodie reflections on Byron Bay)

Firstly, a Happy Easter Monday to all who are celebrating! The recipe that follows below is simple, delicious breakfast treat; one that definitely errs on the side of wholesome in the midst of chocolate-drenched April. Secondly, I apologise in advance if the next few posts I write defy the laws of chronology, but such is life […]

PANCAKE CAKE (with whipped coconut cream & banana)

As I sit here and type these words, I find myself feeling nostalgic about last Christmas already. Less than a month ago, on Christmas Day, my family and I enjoyed this very Pancake Cake as part of a lazy brunch that lasted literally half the day. 24 days into 2017 and aspects of my New Year’s […]

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 […]

SLOW-GRILLED ZUCCHINI, a recipe + Sweden’s first vegan cruise menu (this just the start[er])

On the 29th of September I had the pleasure of attending the official launch and tasting of the swanky (and ground-breaking) Birka Cruise vegan menu; purportedly the first vegan cruise menu of any of the Swedish pleasure cruise services. If you live in Sweden, you are no doubt familiar with shorter pleasure cruises, and M/S Birka is […]

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. […]

FAMILY VACATIONING ON THE MAKARSKA RIVIERA (with a recipe + tips for eating well veg-style & travelling with young children)

We recently returned from a wonderful two weeks in sunny, friendly Croatia. It was my third time there, but my first with the children, and the bulk of this post will cover various experiences we had. But I’ll kick things off with a recipe for those of you who may only be interested in 1) how we self-catered […]

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 […]

ACAI & BERRY PORRIDGE BOWL

This acai-boosted porridge bowl is a variation on my standard blueberry overnight oats. I used to tote overnight oats to the office in a mason jar before going on maternity leave. They were my go-to pregnancy breakfast option and toting was convenient, but I can assure you my shaken-around-oats-in-a-jar never looked pretty by the time I sat […]

ICED MOCHA MYLKSHAKES (with a superfood boost)

A customisable treat that anyone can enjoy, these frosty mocha shakes are a perfect pick-me-up, containing extra protein and superfoods for lasting energy and an endurance boost. Originally created for the Food of Thrones theme of Redemption, I dedicated this recipe to the love-starved “black sheep” of A Song of Ice and Fire. And, while treats […]
