This is a super easy Thai curry recipe that we like to prepare at home whenever the weather is a bit cold or miserable and we need some cheering (or warming) up. Sorry that it’s just the one image in this post. Christian prepared this tasty looking dish during the week and as an after thought I decided to take a quick photo so I could share his recipe with you. Thanks to curry paste everyone can prepare an impressive tasting dish that’s full of exotic flavours. We pick up ours from the local Asian supermarket here in Germany but I used to buy the same ones in England also. For this mild dish we used a yellow Thai curry paste with chicken, sweet potato and chickpeas. View Post

Oh lordy I have been struggling to blog this week and I’m blaming it on the gloomy weather. The sun disappeared behind a huge blanket of clouds and it’s done nothing but rain. It’s been a busy week with work which is great. On Monday I went to Stuttgart to pick up equipment for a photo shoot and Christian agreed to take some pictures of me for this blog post. Tuesday we drove to the shoot inside a factory located in the southern mountains which still looked beautiful in the insane rain that poured all day long. I also had a couple of opportunities for the blog which you will see in the next couple of months. View Post

A Modern Way To Eat by Anna Jones is my go-to cook book for healthy vegetarian (and some vegan) food recipes. Unlike many modern, healthy cook books this includes ingredients you can find at the local supermarket with dishes that are hearty enough to satisfy my hunger! And considering Jamie Oliver has given this his stamp of approval I knew I was onto a good thing when I received this as a gift. View Post

Sorry, pardon WHAT??? Yes, I did say eat your SPF just not the bottle of sunscreen that’s sitting on the bathroom shelf. Let me explain…..

Certain anti-inflammatory foods, high in antioxidants work as a natural SPF. UV exposure is the biggest cause of skin ageing, not to mention skin cancer. Using a daily SPF is a wise choice but why not take it a step further by eating foods that bolster skin’s natural defense against the sun. View Post
