Easter Almond Scones w/ Coconut Yogurt & Raspberry Jam

I feel like I’ve kind of always been sensitive, not in an emotional way (of course, but that’s not the point here), but more in way of being affected by change, and that from very early in life. Whatever may the change be, related to the seasons, the temperatures or the weathers, just as well as environmental changes in general, I am so deeply affected by it that my emotions, mood and energy levels are all topsy-turvy. I do love change, which helps us break away from our own routine, from our habits, which makes us do things we would never have done, take risks, put ourselves in question. But as much as I love it, those emotions, mood and energy rollercoasters that come with it are very much tiring. For instance, since we’ve passed the Spring Equinox, I’ve been feeling either on a high or very tired and drained energy wise, as if this astronomic event has changed something in me. I do not know how you feel about that, but what I know …

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 …

Superpower Green Smoothie

As summer slowly turns its back on us, shading a pink morning light and an early evening light on its way to sleep, the heat starts to mellow, which leaves us with some kind of nostalgia; it is time for many of us to wake up from that bright and golden summer dream, to come back to what we usually call reality. But so many things happened, for us all I guess, things that are essential to cherish and to come back to, in order to nourish that sparkle of happiness inside, that smile we can all draw on when life’s a little tougher. I would not even know where to start to describe what I’ve been living and how I’ve been feeling to this date. From meeting amazingly inspiring and uplifting people, living a life-changing (yogic) experience and focusing on my blogging passion (which also led me on self-questioning paths that truly were beautiful), to feeling like my heart and soul have never been so fulfilled, I feel like life really is good to …

Revolutionary Salty Buckwheat Granola

I am not counting the days since I’ve started eating homemade granola in the morning anymore. I’ve created many different variations, from a chocolate flavoured one to a cardamom and vanilla one. I guess I was bound to come up with another of these achingly delicious recipes; however, I wanted to twist things over and try something new: making it salty! I know that might sound weird and a little unconventional, but trust me, you won’t regret trying it out! For this first version, I’ve mixed different types of cereals as well as grains, a mix that gives the granola a earthy, savoury and crispy taste, which is simply marvellous. The acidity and lemony taste of the zests perfectly contrasts with the maple syrup’s sweetness and the whole grain mustard’s spiciness.

Bowls Collection – The “Green Goddess Summer Salad”

It is summertime! Well, if you’re leaving nearby, you might have noticed that the sun has just left us for a little while; it will hopefully be back at the end of the week…hopefully! Anyway, what I want to share with you all today is supposed to bring a little sunshine in our lives and a whole lot of goodness as well! I created this recipe because I always loved eating while respecting some kind of “colour code” (which certainly comes from my OCD hihi!), because there’s not only the taste of a meal that matters but its beauty and benefits as well, and finally because coming up with a fresh yet simple and quick summer recipe was one of my own challenges (+ because “Green Goddess” has always been a title that I wanted to use!). What I love about this salad is that there are many different ingredients, but that they all merge into some kind of delicious swirl…which will hopefully leave your tastebuds levitating!

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 …
