25 Reasons to Love Your Mom Like Nobody Else in the World

Happy Mother’s Day Peeps! To celebrate those lovely and unique beings, I wanted to share with you all something a little more unusual. I do not feel like there is a need of a specific day to celebrate my mother, but it still nice to be reminded to take her for granted. My mother is a warrior; she has been there since day one, and even though I literally, physically and mentally put her through hell since then, she never gave up on me and loved me so deeply I can’t even understand. She is the one who gave birth to me, who went through pain, horror, doubts and fear for me; she is the one who fed me, who taught me how to walk, who later taught me to believe in myself, who supported me and showed me that everyone is unique and that nobody is worth more than somebody else. She taught me that hard work pays, that ambition would lead me to do everything I wanted, that self-love is the essential and …

#GGTips: 8 Ways to Love 2016 & Make 2017 Glow

I plead guilty for I have sinned. Well, if you consider not publishing anything for a month a sin! I indeed had to take some time off, away from social medias and from my digital world for several reasons. First, if you’ve been following me on my social medias, you might have understood that I’ve lost someone incredibly close to my heart. Therefore, as my holidays were kind of messy, full of unforeseen events, horribly sad moments, I did not have the heart to publish a thing. I felt like my entire being has been knocked down; I could feel my cells drained from all their energy. I tried to write from time to time, but what came out either where blank pages or dull lines of words, tasteless, emotionless. I believed it to be the right choice not to share anything with you all, as I really wanted to take time for myself as well as keep that place a universe of happiness. However, now that I am starting to feel myself again, I …

The Winter Yoga Pot

From the very beginning of this year, and even more round the end of it, I have started experiencing those odd but incredible “awareness” moments. Whenever in those, it is just as if my body’s was trying to tell me something, to slip a word in my head, an idea or a simple emotion. That feels weird to write down and even weirder to hear I believe, but I do not truly know who to express it. What I know for sure is that, for example, my body’s needed yoga these days, more than ever before. I knew it for I was kind of moving all the time, bending on one side, then the other, walking round my house, standing up as soon as I could feel tingling in my legs. I also know that I’ve needed much more sleep; it’s been two mornings in a row where I could not wake up. And for those who know me, nine hours’ sleep is not a habit of mine at all! I also know how I …

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 …

Healthy & Raw Wicked Pumpkin Pie

What would be a Halloween party without a proper dessert, a delicious, easy, impressive dessert you will feel proud of and your guests will thank you for. The first time I ever tasted a pumpkin pie actually was in Vancouver, where I’ve been able to prepare an entire Thanksgiving dinner. This is when I was still eating processed food and despite my sweet tooth, I did not really enjoy the famous pumpkin pie. Two years after, I thought it would be a good idea to make my own healthy version of that pumpkin pie. I am not hiding that this recipe might be slightly caloric, but just slightly; but the point of eating healthy is not about counting how many calories we ingest but how much goodness. What’s more, you should just tell people you used time, love and happiness as ingredients…that’s what I did at the Halloween party I attended yesterday…it did not work, but that’s just because they know me by heart!
