Mushroom and Pepper Stroganoff – Quick Healthy Meals

It is not difficult to make sure we are eating healthily when I have plenty of time to prepare meals. However, this proves a bit more difficult when I get home in the evening after a day’s work and have to start preparing a meal from scratch. However, I have found a way around this,  I think. This is what helps me most. I shop for the vegetables we like in the beginning of the week and then make sure I incorporate them in the...

Crunchy Quinoa Granola

Everyone says that breakfast is “the most important meal of the day”. After waking up from a fasted night, we would need a well balanced meal to fuel ourselves to face whatever the day has in store for us. Granola is a popular breakfast staple. It may be marketed as a healthy option, but if you take a closer look at the ingredients, you will notice a string of unpronounceable ingredients, highly processed oils and sugars....

Mixed Berry Chia Jam

Store-bought fruit jams are very often than not, full of sugars and preservatives. On a quest to find a healthier alternative to a jar full of sugar, I am going to share with you a very simple recipe that requires minimal time and ingredients, and can be done on a stove top. What I like about this recipe is that you can control what kind of sweetener to use, and you’re totally free not to use any as well! Ingredients: 2 cups...

Vegan Figolli

Vegan Figolli

It has always been a tradition in our family to make home made figolli just before Easter. The kids loved to choose their shapes, and help decorate their own figolla when they were young. Last year, at Easter time, I had already been vegan for a few months , so I set about trying to alter my recipe to eliminate all animal products. It was not as difficult as some people may think. All you have to do is use a vegan margarine and...

Still the right weather for soup.

I had already stated here that I love soup. All types and variations , and I never tire of eating soup. Except when the weather gets warm. Then, it’s not an option. I usually prefer eating my vegetables raw in Summer, mostly in salads. I also make an effort to add more vegetables to other dishes, like pasta, rice or noodles. Very easy to grill some vegetables and add to these or make up a stir fry. But since the warm weather...

Time for Kwarezimal.

I strive to eat as healthily as possible, however that doesn’t mean that I do not indulge in a treat occasionally. Since I became vegan, these are usually things I bake myself. This week I made some kwarezimal to enjoy with my afternoon cup of tea. Since this sweet was traditionally made during Lent, it does not contain any eggs or fats so it is practically vegan. All I do is replace the honey for the glaze. Try this, it is very...

The ultimate Avocado Toast

Avocado: a remarkable fruit! Disclaimer: I am an avocado addict. I love avocados and have loved them for many many years. I will happily eat an avocado a day for breakfast or chopped up in my lunch, so I might be a little biased when I say: Avocados are the best!  There are, however, many reasons that everyone should share my same love for avocados. Flavour-wise avocados will not blow you away, their flavour is delicate and mild, but...
