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
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
I’m excited to share my recent conversation with Kim Tilman Hahn on being vegan. Born and raised in Stuttgart, Kim currently lives in Munich with his French Bulldog named Boy. He has a career in art direction for digital fashion projects as well as brand development and website design. Kim enjoys healthy living and creating that work/life balance. He loves to travel and his favourite cities are LA and Stockholm.
Kale season runs from mid-summer to December, however kale leaves grow sweeter after the frost making now the best time to eat it. Green leafy vegetables are beyond good for us, but we know this already so I won’t harp on. I will simply list 5 known benefits below to remind you why you want some kale right now. Plus a tasty recipe to inspire you with ways to eat it.
- Kale is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. So, if you are going to eat any veg then this should be top of the list.
- It fights cancer. High levels of glucosinolates help eliminate carcinogens from the body and stimulate the self-destruction of cancer cells.
- Your skin loves kale! The generous amount of antioxidants make this a smart choice for everyone. Because who doesn’t want better skin?
- Anti-inflammatory. Disease cannot survive unless there is inflammation in the body. Alkaline foods are our best friend and they also promote younger looking skin.
- Perhaps one of the more unexpected benefits, kale is high in calcium.
