Strawberries and Cream Smoothie

I ❤ to lift weights, heavy weights.  The only cardio I do is to lift weights faster! A lot of the nutrition research I do revolves around how to eat to fuel your workout – when’s the best time and what’s the best way to eat carbs, protein, fats for maximum bang for your buck … Continue reading

PB & J Pancakes

Growing up we had a fabulously flamboyant Texan friend who was the epitome of Southern American cliché. His name was Uncle Hayseed (yep, that’s legit!) and he was never seen dressed in anything else other than denim jeans, crocodile leather cowboy boots, solid gold belt buckle bejewelled with real diamonds, rubies and sapphires, his crisp white … Continue reading

Make your own yoghurt

Yoghurt is fermented milk, fermented by live cultures – good bacteria which feed off the sugars in milk making it an easily digestible whole, live food. That said, yoghurt should contain only 2 ingredients: milk and bacteria (aka cultures, probiotics, good pathogens). Commercially made yoghurt by giant so-called food companies can contain anywhere up to … Continue reading

Grain Free Doughnuts

  I stumbled upon the original version of this recipe on my news feed the other day. Stumbled is too soft a word, it more like slapped me in the face, in a good way! I tried making some donuts over Chanukkah but even I would say that it was not a raging success… so … Continue reading

Coco-nutty pancake stacks

Here’s a winning Hot Pink Chilli original recipe which prompted a wide-eyed “Please can I have some more?!” from my notoriously fussy Miss 3.

Grain Free Sandwich Bread

I’m undone with this one. It’s not an original recipe – just a tweak or 2, why would you change something so perfect?! Full credit must go to Loving Our Guts for this beautiful recipe – it appears foolproof too, bonus! What’s even better about this bread is the fact that it’s nut-free! Eating grain-free … Continue reading

Kale-fornication

Green is the new black. If you’ve ever sculled a glass of super refreshing, ice-cold green juice you would have to agree, no?! My green ambitions began brewing months ago,  but my juices have always resembled the rainbow. Rainbows are beautiful and undoubtedly nutritious but I knew I needed to go green! Riding the wave … Continue reading

Bobba’s Shak Shouka

I’ve always preferred the casual approach of no-measure-taste-as-you-go cooking. Consequently, as a food blogger, I find it stifling having to measure accurately so that my recipes can become fail-proof successes in your kitchens. This became all the more obvious on making breakfast the other morning. All of a sudden it turned into my next blog … Continue reading

Chai Cupcakes

Decent cupcakes are generally a lost cause when you eat gluten-free. Prospects become increasingly dismal when you throw in that fact that you eat grain-free too. Well, I am here to tell you: Prospects… be dismal no more! Enter the loveliness of Farmer K’s Chai Cupcakes. No, that is not a typo, it’s Chai, not … Continue reading

Protein Colada

Ask anyone who knows me what my idea of a perfect holiday is, and my answer is the same… verbatim… everytime: “Stick me under a palm tree for 2 weeks with a Pina Colada in my hand and I am happy!” Our honeymoon was 10 days in an unbelievably romantic loveshack perched on a hillside … Continue reading
