• Aubergine & Raisin Risotto-Stuffed Bell Pepper

    If you want to eat healthy (which I know you do), adopt vegetable stuffed meals in your diet. This Moroccan-Mediterranean fusion of a dish fits perfectly in that repertoire, it’s easy to prepare on a weeknight and extremely healthy due to high vegetable content. Aubergine tastes great paired with raisins (I use yellow ones – which I thought meant they are made from white grapes, but just found out it actually means these raisins have been treated with sulphur dioxide to keep their color, bummer). Still, yellow raisins are a bit sweeter and plumper than black raisins, which works great in risottos and stews. This recipe is suitable for a healthy food pattern,…

  • Healthy Chocolate Recipes I found on the Internet + Music

    There’s hardly a feeling more brilliant than dancing around the kitchen while making healthy chocolate snacks. On that note, I’d like to share my current favorite song with you: “Ties” by Years & Years. Heard of them through my ‘hip&happening’ prodigy Olivia, thanks girl! Also, these three great chocolate snack recipes I found on the internet. With(out) few added sugars, dairy-free and even gluten-free!   Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites Bounty’s healthy alternative? Yes, please! I just love these juicy coconut bites. Thinking of taking some to my colleagues at the new workplace… maybe they’ll get lucky 😉 (I have a feeling some of them are reading the blog 🙂 ).…

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts & Pecans

    Crunchy, sweet and chocolatey cookies are lovely to snack on when you are having a cup of tea or snuggling up on the couch for your favourite movie. But, snacking in front of the TV is a dangerous habit if you are watching your weight… With this healthier alternative, you can practice this dangerous habit somewhat safely ;). This chocolate chip cookie recipe does not contain added sugar (yey!), does contain heart-healthy walnuts and pecans (plus vitamin E!), and packs a good punch of dark chocolate (which does contain some sugar, and which you can buy dairy-free). I use oatmeal flour as the basis, which means that the recipe is…

  • Tasty tacos with veggies, feta and minced beef

    Tacos can be as nutritious or as bad for you as you make them. Personally, I think that just because something is ‘bad for you’ in its original form doesn’t mean you have to stop loving it all together – it just means you can find a healthier alternative and still enjoy! These tasty tacos are perfect for a casual dinner with friends or a fun family meal (with kids), and they are also super healthy. P.s. you could also make this recipe using tortilla wraps but, unless you are making your own tortilla wraps, opt for taco shells because store bought tortilla wraps are full of conservatives, artificial flavors…

  • ‘Healthy’ Pastry // Cinnamon Sticks

    Cinnamon Sticks are a sweet and tasty dessert that is low in sugar, low in fat and high in beneficial properties of cinnamon. I got the recipe from a friend and in the meanwhile I’ve made it for plenty of friends and they have all enjoyed it! This dessert only takes 15 minutes to make, so it’s perfect for surprise visits or for a lazy winter night. Eat it with some strawberries or blueberries on the side for a great breakfast (tested & guaranteed, mmm!). CINNAMON STICKS Puff pastry, homemade or frozen (I buy it frozen, takes about 5 minutes to defrost since the pieces are small), Egg, organic, 1 (mixed…
