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 …

The Hummus’ Dance – Three Delicious Ways

I sincerely do not think there’s something better than a freshly made hummus. And I feel like eating it kind of all the time! More seriously, hummus is actually my “to-go” food whenever not in the mood to cook something complicated, or receiving friends over or organising some kind of dinner party. I love it and could eat it by the bucket load, especially since it’s very creamy, filling and that you can pair it with almost everything. On a lazy evening, I would probably with greens, veggies, rye bread or quinoa, so that I can be sure to have some kind of protein intake. I’ve playing round with hummus recipes, as I wanted to offer a few other types than the plain one, and those really are my favourites. For a little sweetness, I would definitely go for the carrot one. If you like it to be a little spicy, the beetroot one is the one to choose. And if you like it savoury and very tasty, well prepare the sundried tomato one…it’s to …

The 2016 Christmas Gift: A Cranberry, Apple & Ginger Chutney

As there’s only one day left to wait before Christmas (or two…I always get mixed up anyway! It depends on when you’re celebrating it I believe haha!), I guess we’ve all put out hats, smiles and Christmas decorations (What !?) on, ready to swing and have fun with family and friends. You might be already well prepared, all your gifts done, your eyebrows waxed, whatever clothes you’re going to wear ready for you on a chair…well guess what? I am not at all! My eyebrows are waxed indeed but my gifts are far from done, my clothes are far from chosen and I can hardly think about all the things I have to do before tomorrow at midnight. As I am writing this article to you, I am actually putting my yoga gears on to leave and teach a yoga class, writing a shopping list for tomorrow’s Christmas gifts and eating the avocado on toast I forgot downstairs (forgetting my own food…that must be the Christmas spirit!). If you can picture yourself in the exact …

Monday Motivation – 19th of September

« Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. » – Maya Angelou  I’ve been trying to read a little more for a couple of days. Creating recipes, writing articles, studying, practicing yoga and socializing do not leave that much space for another creative activity like reading. However, I know that I need that “literary brain food”, that sparkle of inspiration, these meaningful lines that usually make me fly away. Not only does it inspire me to bring a few changes now and then in my routine, but it really opens my mind and spirit to new ideas, discoveries and thoughts. Anyway, in one of my desperate attempts to take time and read a few lines, I came across Maya Angelou’s work and a few of her famous lines. Two of them really struck me; and this is one of them…

Special Edition – Almond, Dates & Chocolate Chips Cookies

When I was preparing those biscuits for the first time, the snow was falling and festive carols were echoing in the winter’s darkness, as we were slowly approaching the end of a tremendous year; what I wanted to do with those simply was to share a little piece of eatable happiness with my family and friends. However, I did keep this recipe a secret so that I could share it another time…and I believe the time has come for me to share it, especially in the current course of events. As you might have seen it already, with you reading those lines and my writing them down, an awful massacre is happening, among a population we’re quite alike. On the 12th of June 2016, a terrible attack has been made against human beings’ physical and moral integrity. Just like you, I am in shock; and it suddenly struck me, that I had to raise my voice and pay my respects for those lost souls, through the way I master the most. I realised it is …
