Middle-Eastern Vibes – Muhammara (Roasted Pepper & Walnut Dip) Recipe

Before even being familiar with the concept of “netflix and chill”, I was casually spending my Saturday at home, with my cats, some brownies and a Sex And the City movie – nothing very original round here (apart that this is the gayest set ever). This is when I actually discovered about Muhammara – this traditional Middle Eastern red dip recipe that yet needs to invade our Western World. If it was attracting love and romance for Carrie, I had to try it out. I guess it ultimately does not, but that is not a big deal (trying to be funny here!). Anyways, as a hummus fan, I usually am complicated to content when it comes to dips and spread – this was until I met with this red shaded heavenly food. It is crunchy and sweet, yet owning a profound and earthy flavour. It is easily spreadable and is great as a side, as a dip or in sandwiches. I usually love using those specific nuts for their good monounsaturated fats and their magnesium, …

Liquid Gold in a Glass: Raspberry & Basil Smoothie

This weekend of late March early April has been full of magic: A Celestial Event (Blue Full Moon), the wrapping up of our third 2018’s month and the start of a new one, and finally Easter celebrations. So many empowering and releasing energies all round us, making our dreams and intentions more powerful than ever. I hope that you shared some amazing moments with your loved ones – and that even though you’re reading that later in the year, you are still spreading the love and sharing great times with those round you. I am one of those who do not wait for Spring or Summer to sip on deliciously creamy and satisfying smoothies and actually use it as a base for each and every single one of my breakfasts. There is nothing like a smoothie – or even better, a Smoothie Bowl topped with loads of goodness – to make me feel happy, grateful and full for the entire morning. I am especially in love with this one since it incorporates a little basil …

Raspberry Mousse No-Cheesecake

Since January 5th (yes because the day of my arrival in the US was quite horrific), I have been living the dream. Living in an entire beach house by myself; opening my eyes to the bright coloured sunrise every single morning; practicing yoga, meditation and studying at university in the most enchanting and dreamy environment of all. However, there is one thing that I miss and realised I would never be able to live without (apart from my cats, mum and friends – still a human after all): a decent food processor. The one I’ve unearthed from a hidden cupboard is good enough to make smoothie bowls and matcha lattes – but that’s it. I thus realised how much my sanity was depending on energy balls, juices and mousse cakes, like the one I have prepared for you today. A slice of dream, a marvellous delight, all fresh, fruity and fluffy. A instant of surrender, where we let ourselves go and float in-between spiritual worlds. Even better than a yoga lesson (okay, well I am …

Guest Recipe: Susan’s Pomegranate Halva

A gloomy and grey sky, crispy air, an uncertain and yet powerful wind blowing inside my hair, chilling my body to the bones. All wrapped up in layers, coats and wraps, heading to a bunch of meetings, I catch myself thinking about about my life and how grateful I am for it. The usual effect of winter days and too early Christmas Carols. I wonder what I’ve done to be worthy of all of this; hard work for sure, nothing’s ever achieved without that. But maybe the deep and strong belief that I am the greatest and only leader, hero and leader of my own life. Just like the one that says you cannot change the people and their reactions, you can change your way to cope with it all, your reactions and most importantly, your actions. I strongly believe we can have it all. We can do everything we set our mind and intention to. Maybe that’s what pushed me onto this path, along with passion, imagination & great support for sure. All of this …
