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…

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…

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…

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…

Struffoli, Christmas honey balls

A true Italian delicacy and a…

Nothing easier than these pancakes! Literally a few minutes and you get gluten free, dairy free, paleo, nutritious pancakes! I enjoy mine with blueberry syrup on top, I do this by warming a packet of fresh blueberries in a pan, on low heat, until they start to bubble and release their sweet juice..yum! I pour the…

Light Chocolate Mousse

When chocolate mousse is a 2 step, few minutes procedure it becomes dangerously inviting to my eyes.. that and the fact that this one is a super light
vegan, gluten free and dairy free..yum!

Raw Carrot Cake Bites

This morning in my fridge I was left with a bag of carrots, coconut butter, grapefruit and some eggs. A bit sad, really need to get some shopping done! It is often in those moments when I try to make something out of those few ingredients that the best recipes come out. What can I…

Blueberry cookies

I love to dehydrate fruit and veg in the comfort of my kitchen! So after strawberry gummies, berry fruit rolls and kale chips, this week the winner is … Blueberries! A delicious super food and super high in antioxidants. Blueberries are one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world and contain large levels…
