Cauliflower, Tomato & Chickpeas Garam Masala Curry

I bet that many (at least what people tell me) of you are stopped from eating a little healthier or simply taking time to prepare your own meals because you’re a busy bee. Take care of oneself is not only a matter of time but of organisation and routine; as soon as you start giving that specific thing some time in your life, you’ll never really think about it again. Let me explain. At first, and like people usually believe my life to be, I was kind of overwhelmed with it all. I had to prepare my breakfast, my lunch and even dinner sometimes, and was rushing all round the house and kitchen like crazy to find my ingredients (and I am not even mentioning the stress of a lack of a few…!) and some inspiration. And at that time, I used to spend hours preparing my food. But when I started doing my “meal preparation” (aka meal prep.) on Sunday, it truly changed my life. I am never asking myself what I’ll eat during …

Sweet Potato Spaghetti, Tomato Sauce & “Meatballs”

There is no way I could express myself to tell you how good it feels to back at writing. Now that the weather has gently started to switch to something colder and more wintery, which is kind of my favourite, there’s nothing that feels righter that studying/blogging/photographing from the comfort of my home. But first, if you’d like to know what has happened last week, let me just grab my thermos of chai tea, some cookies and let’s step into that time machine together. As my week was wrapping up and that I was quietly hitting the weekend, I felt quite normal. I knew I would probably spend it studying, procrastinating a few less important things even though there’s nothing I despise more than this, teaching my Saturday yoga class and surely cook a little. But I was not expecting those heavy black clouds to cover my seeming happiness, and to stay right there for more than a week…

Healthy Carrot Cake Inspired Muffins

I guess we can all reckon it has been a very intense and emotional three days. I thought about today’s article quite a long time before even starting to write down those words. Even though I want this blog to be a digital world for me to inspire, to show you all how happiness and gratefulness may be found in the simplest ways, I feel like it is my mission to speak out and express my feelings. It is not as if, us food bloggers and even you, dear reader, could avoid what’s happening out there, in the real world. I am not going to fiercely stand up for my opinions here, which might just as well contradict with yours, but I really want to make sense out of those days’ situation, to bring another point of view than the ones we’re hearing across the medias. I want to show that there’s still hope, in every single situatin you’re into, hidden beneath those layers of anger, fear and distress…

Green Goodness Buddha Bowl

As soon as the autumn hits, greens tend to get unpopular. There only is a few green vegetables indeed, but they are just marvellous, full of flavours and happiness. Well, here is a great way to add them all to your cold months diet. This is my favourite bowl at the moment, not only because it is very quick and easy to make, but because its taste just is insanely addictive. And since this is one of the healthiest dinner ever, you’ll feel so virtuous after eating it, it’s never been that easy to eat greens! I’ve been asked many times how to eat Kale, and gently sautéing it must be my favourite way; it is tender yet still a little firm, and goes perfectly along with the courgette. The pea puree adds a great creaminess to the dish, as well as a refreshing note, thank to its lemony taste. When it comes to the almonds (well, I actually almost eat them all straight out of the oven…oups!), they bring a fantastic crush, a spicy …
