Gut Healing Gelatin Marshmallows

Gut healing marshmallows? Wait. What?? The ingredient we are focusing on for such a claim is good quality, grass fed gelatin. Gelatin is a substance that is largely derived from the skin, bones and tissue of animals. It is composed of amino acids, the building blocks of protein and largely from glycine and proline. Because…

Spicy Fried Turkey with Shiitake Mushrooms

This quick and delicious recipe is once again the result of my fridge left overs 😉 Broccoli (I never run out!), Shiitake mushrooms, olives, peppers and turkey. You know what? It came out pretty well 😉 Me and Sophie enjoyed it in the kitchen, by the sunny windowsill. Looking at these ingredients I can see…

Creamy Tagliatelle with Chickpeas

Sometimes I have no idea what to prepare until the very last minute and then is usually too late for anything fancy. Take today. I woke up at 7, had a little chat with my daughter about what we dreamt of, like we usually do. Apparently one girl she knows turned into a gorilla. Anyway,…

Shiitake & Broccoli Konjac Noodles

For any of you out there following (or trying to follow!) a low carb diet this pasta is a great option 🙂 Shirataki noodles, konjac or even konnyaku potato, is made primarily from glucomannan, a type of fibre of the konjac root, a plant that is native to Eastern Asia. The slightly chewy texture is…

THE ULTIMATE ALKALINE JUICE

Many common conditions such as headaches, difficulty concentrating, cramps, joint and muscle pain, nausea, hypertension, osteoporosis, and halitosis may have a common cause like  a PH imbalance of our body, also known as metabolic acidosis. Orienting our body towards a slightly alkaline tendency can help to balance its state of well-being. Our PH reflects the…

Blueberry Muffins

I like the practicality of a good blueberry muffin. The kind of dessert that it’s easy to put  together from scratch in less than 10 minutes, the hardest part is to wait for them to cook in the oven..;) It’s my daughter, actually, who has been asking for these for a while. I promised her…

Venison Shepherd’s Pie

Sometime has passed since my last post and there is a reason. Everybody caught the flu @themoseley’s house! My husband got sick first and within 3 days we were all in bed smiling, yey 🙂 not really. Luckily we all caught it lightly, 3 days in bed a few body aches and it was all…

Sophie’s (Birthday) Cake

A few days ago we celebrated my daughter’s birthday, it always comes too soon! Just like Joey in “Friends”, it seems that agreements with God on the subject of time can’t be made…what a pity. Yet, time has a funny way of playing in our head. Looking at the photo below I can feel that…

Wild Rice & Creamy Cauli

Yesterday I felt like preparing a warm, cosy meal for Sophie using wild rice. Something filling and creamy but light at the same time. Some people refer to wild rice as an aquatic grass, some as a grain. To me it’s a nutritious food, rich in fibre, anti oxidants, folate, phosphorous, manganese, zinc and magnesium. It…

Creamy Cashew Cookies

So the three of us are on our way to yoga and swimming which means we are going to be out most of the day. Whilst sometimes is nice to have a snack outside, the ingredient list of the prepacked options available at the counter usually put me off. This is further restricted by a…
