Autumn has officially kicked off so on Sunday I decided to get the camera and go for a walk in my area to capture the beautiful leaves before they fall down. Not relishing the thought of a long cold winter I reluctantly waved goodbye to Summer last week. Now that the trees are turning colour and it’s cold but not yet freezing I’m warming up, like I always do, to a cozy autumn period. View Post
Once again I prepared an impromptu dish and just as I’m about to tuck in I decide I should share it on the blog. Therefore this post isn’t picture heavy nor is it beautifully styled. But, it’s a real moment from my daily life which hopefully you will agree is far better! This cheeky cous cous salad is as a healthy vegetarian lunch option or a lightweight dinner that’s perfect during the summer months. Cous cous provides a good source of lean vegetarian protein, the grains swell up making this nice and filling and a good source of fiber. I added lot’s of complimenting flavours to make sure it’s satisfying and tasty. View Post
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
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
