Guest Recipe: Susan’s Victoria Sponge with Chia jam and Coconut Cream

Susan Jane is blessing us with another of her absolutely scrumptious recipes. If this cake is not a sign from the universe that you should start dancing on the healthy baking path, I do not know what you need…maybe cakes shooting stars ?! This Victoria Sponge is the very first recipe I have ever made when starting my plantbased diet. I remember it vividly – not only were my birthday party’s guests a little shocked to learn about what truly was in that cake, but I also was delighted to see that I could indulge myself with delicious treats while not feeling guilty at all. And all of this while still being fully aware of all the benefits of the food I was eating. There is nothing boring about healthy food – we are justing thinking out of fear because we have been taught that food (aka. survival) is about refined and animal products. This is how we have been raised because the society we’ve grown in has worked that way for decades (if not …

Marinated Tofu, Roasted Veggies & Basil Pistachio Pesto

Roasted veggies are the kings and queens of healthy cooking. No matter the weather or the season, you may basically roast everything in an oven or on a barbecue. It is not only a tasty and easy way to add vegetables to your diet but is also very cheap. What you’ll need is a fat (olive oil for example), spices (whatever you fancy), veggies and salt/pepper – it does not get as complicated as that. I am usually preparing those every week so that I have something to eat whenever I do not feel like cooking or just do not have the time. You would like to start meal-prepping? Roasted veggies are your friends! Along with those amazing vegetables, I usually love to marinate some tofu, which is a staple food for all vegetarian/vegan/plantbased eater looking for good quality plant-protein! Some people like it raw, and not marinated, but it is not my cup of tea. And if you are new to tofu, I would recommend marinating first so that it absorbs some delicious flavours …

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 …

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 …

8 Ways to Love 2016 & Make 2017 Glow (or any other year!)

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 …

Festive Chocolate Cake with a Hazelnut Frosting

Don’t you feel like these days are the worst of the entire year? You’ve celebrated Christmas with your families and friends, eaten way over your belly capacity, received wonderful presents – books, clothes, unidentified objects or money – as well as touching words & wishes, all of this with glitter on your face and dancing shoes on your feet. And now what? We’re crawling out of bed, wearing sunglasses to hide our lack of sleep, walking (and not tiptoeing) with a coffee in one hand and a glass of lemon water in the other, trying to flush out all the dirt we’ve accumulated in out bodies, crying because we’re not being offered gifts anymore, waiting for it to start all over again on New Year’s Eve. (Well ok, I am pushing things a little too far, but I am sure every one of us felt at least one of these things haha!).
