Grain-free Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

If you’re looking for an easy, quick, amazing, mouth-watering and not vain at all cookie recipe, well you’d better choose this one. When the colder months arrive, I usually am desperately looking for those deliciously chocolaty comfort foods, not only because chocolate is life but because my body needs some sun within if it does not get it from the sky itself. This does not prevent you from making them in the middle of summer of course. Did you know that a cacao tree is called a Theobroma Cacao, which means “Food of the Gods” ? And that cacao is actually one of the best stimulants + containing more antioxidants than any other food on the planet ? Well now you know! Anyway, those cookies are absolutely fantastic, scrumptious as a dessert and even better when eaten as a snack, as they are indulging but guilt-free and actually very good for you. Full of good and quickly metabolised fats, healthy carbohydrates and some superfoods, those really are a fridge’s must-have (you’ve still got to eat …

8 Ingredients Pancakes – A Simple, Quick & Mouth-watering Breakfast

I am a breakfast person. And as far as I know, I do not believe there is something trendier than pancakes for breakfast. Even though some other breakfast ideas do attract the spotlights, such as chia puddings, healthy granolas or smoothies, I’ve never seen so many pancakes on my Instagram feed or on the Internet. And the reason is we, food bloggers, are creating healthy versions of them, which do attract people’s attention more and more every day. I’ve been asked multiple times to share a pancake recipe on the blog, and I guess those people’s dreams have come true! (For a non-vegan recipe, you can click here !) There is nothing else you would want to wake up to; there is nothing else you would want to pour maple syrup on; there is nothing else you could sacrifice your sanity for. Well, let’s be honest, if you have got someone to prepare them for you, that’s even better. Waking up to those beauties is like discovering a hundred banknote in the side pocket of …

Why the Smartness & Tenacity portrayed in “Hidden Figures” will empower you like Nothing before

I am going out of my comfort zone. Me who like to talk about food, yoga and wellness in general, I am trying to inspire you channelling other sensations within you. The heat of tenacity, strength, togetherness and activism. Do not only give me the benefit of the doubt, but try to reflect upon what’s following, trying to take as much as you can from it; simply so that you can be empowered, too. What comes in mind when thinking about historical movies focusing on brilliant minds, we can expect, as Lenika Cruz puts it in The Atlantic, “a tale of ego”. Films like The Theory of Everything or The Imitiation Game do talk about those scientists’ struggles as individuals, but frame their lives as inaccessible – a genius that we, people, cannot even fancy. Hidden Figures sets apart as it is not a film of ego, but of brilliance. It’s a story of tenacity, willpower, strength and struggle; even though there is a little glorification of those characters, there’s no such thing as individual …

Awfully Delicious Breakfast – Maple & Cinnamon Chia Pudding

I cannot get used to time flying so quickly; it seems that as soon as I get accustomed to a situation, things are changing again, swapped for even more beautiful things though. It feels like we’ve just entered autumn, and yet, here we are, getting much closer to Halloween and the much colder season than ever. Even though this is quite unsettling, I kind of love how life is unfolding, giving us a little magic to dream on every single day. That rapidity also makes me realise we should all be so thankful to wake up the morning after, simply because life could stop at any time…But enough of this gloomy talk, let’s move on to something way more delicious – the very beginning of our Halloween Treats Collection!

#GGTips – Winter Aches Natural Treatments & Cold Remedies

This year, Mother Nature has been a little tough on us – switching to what we could call a freezing weather simply overnight, without notice or any kind of warning. Unfortunately for many of us, that lead to a few complications, mainly being having hard times to sleep (because of the quick transition), wake up, and for others, suffering from early signs of colds and flus. What we usually like to do when getting ill actually is to rush to drug store and buy anything that could cure us quickly and efficiently, whereas what we should all do first is trying natural and inexpensive cures, that are much better for our health, longevity and planet!

Homemade Glorious Granola

I’ve been feeding on Granola in the morning since my very early childhood; passing from the so-called “Kellogg’s” to “Fitness” and even “Special K”, I can assure you that not only is their consumption tricky (I’ve been waiting for that sculptural body shape on the box for ages), but very unhealthy too! Indeed, your entire organism and machinery get clogged up by those kinds of store-bought products, just because they are full of refined sugar, preservatives and additives. But in case of a major bombing, that you’re locked up in your basement, and either left with an empty stomach or a bag of those flakes, well…you should eat them! As I was just starting to discover how amazing healthy food was, I’ve been directly seduced by all those mouth-watering pictures of homemade granola; but there were plenty of recipes out there, and many of them actually were quite deceiving. After many epic fails and travels (where I realised a bowl of granola and fresh fruits actually is one of the sole things I love to …
