Almond, Chocolate & Sweet Potato Blondies

Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention. And when you need to reduce your sugar intake, well, you come up with the most delicious ideas. Because (healthy!) sweets truly are bare necessities in one’s life. For someone that usually eats energy balls on reg, that prepare choc brownies when invited for a dinner party or just because he fancies it, that has a love/hate relationship with honey, maple, dates and so many more healthy sugars, it truly was a great challenge to bring new twists to my regular desserts and snacks. As I was preparing some sweet potato puree for the fam and our “Buddha Bowl” evening, I wondered if I could use this sweet-tasting puree for dessert purposes. Knowing that it was working with brownies, why wouldn’t it with blondies?! It took me some time to define the right ingredients and to pair the nicest flavours together but I guess I have found my happiness so far.       Those blondies are THE absolute best when it comes to eating sweets. They …

Sweet Potato Falafels & Roasted Peppers Quinoa Buddha Bowl

Falafels need to be reinvented, redefined, and remodelled. Even though you may find a few places where they are preparing them in a healthy way, this once healthy food has now become synonym of that greasy junky food people eat because they feel less guilty than eating a burger. Usually eaten in a wrap, I am today offering you another way to enjoy those little balls of happiness: a Buddha Bowl. There is not real definition of what a Buddha Bowl is. What you’ve got to know is that a Buddha Bowl basically is a bowl which you throw a whole lot of goodness in, drizzle some sauce on top and parachute a few seeds or sprouts. Here you are. I am not trying to be bold by saying I’ll revolution them. But I am almost certain you’ll find something delectable in those. This amazing recipe transforms the sweet potato in a crispy yet mushy treat, which is not deep fried in very questionable oil but simply baked. It keeps the fat content quite low …

Sweet Potato Spaghetti, Tomato Sauce & “Meatballs”

There is no way I could express myself to tell you how good it feels to back at writing. Now that the weather has gently started to switch to something colder and more wintery, which is kind of my favourite, there’s nothing that feels righter that studying/blogging/photographing from the comfort of my home. But first, if you’d like to know what has happened last week, let me just grab my thermos of chai tea, some cookies and let’s step into that time machine together. As my week was wrapping up and that I was quietly hitting the weekend, I felt quite normal. I knew I would probably spend it studying, procrastinating a few less important things even though there’s nothing I despise more than this, teaching my Saturday yoga class and surely cook a little. But I was not expecting those heavy black clouds to cover my seeming happiness, and to stay right there for more than a week…

Late Summer Dinner – Sweet Potato, Green Beans & Tahini Dreamy Quinoa

Since the day I have jumped on this digital adventure with you all, I must admit that my life truly has changed. I will not go through all the details but let’s just say that health and lifestyle speaking, having a blog really motivated me to take even better care of myself, my nutrition, health, look and body. It’s not to say that I was not healthy before, but just that it reinforced all these things I aspire to do/be/become. Thus, I have been focusing on my Warm Yoga practice a whole lot, an activity that means everything for me at the moment. For this is a very demanding practice, and that I am trying to be a plantbased eater as much as possible, I really need a sufficient protein intake to help me rebuilt my muscles and keep my organism on good track!

Beluga Lentils, Fennel & Sweet Potato Salad

Il y a quelques semaines déjà, afin de célébrer l’été et de profiter d’un agréable moment entre amis, j’ai décidé de lancer ma première « Dinner Party ». Le principe est très simple : inviter quelques-uns de ses amis, préparer un repas de l’apéritif jusqu’au dessert, préparer un endroit convivial et élégant de réception et tout ceci avec le plus grand des plaisirs. Puisque c’était une première, il est vrai que je n’étais pas autant organisé que je l’aurais souhaité, et il ne m’en reste d’ailleurs aucune photo. Mais malgré cela, j’ai eu l’occasion de cuisiner et tester de nombreuses recettes, qui ont, a mon plus grand bonheur, ravi les estomacs de tous. La recette d’aujourd’hui a donc pour la première fois été servie à ce repas et a, en quelque sorte, été créée pour l’occasion. Dans cette salade printanière, nous pouvons retrouver des saveurs épicées, qui se marient parfaitement avec la douceur de la patate douce ainsi que celle du sirop d’érable ; le fenouil apporte une pointe de fraîcheur et de croquant et les lentilles, quant à …
