What I Eat…

That’s right! Time for an oldie but a goodie here on the blog: a what I eat blog post. I haven’t done one of these in YEARS! A few years ago I had some stomach issues and I found that what I ate had a lot to do with how I was feeling and so…

5 Homemade Lunch Ideas

I love to cook, but over the years my food blog posts were severely diminished as I felt I wasn’t trying out enough new recipes and just didn’t have much interesting to show. However, I have a couple of standard homemade lunches that I love to take with me to work and I sometimes post…

Going low carb & sugar free

Well for 2 weeks that is. These past few weeks, because life just got super busy, I wasn’t all that much into healthy eating. Add on numerous outings, birthdays and other occasions that warrant yummy food of the not so healthy variety and I got to a point where I felt bloated and tired again….

Food haul

I’ve really been trying to be more diligent about my eating patterns again. After having dabbled in low carbing, and going completely wheat free, things improved greatly and I found that I could eat anything I want again without too much discomfort. But that did mean that I went a little overboard. So late last…

Recipe: Banana-coconut cake (wheat & sugar free)

A healthy cake? When I spotted this recipe, I knew I had to try it. I’ve been meaning to do some more baking again, but I just haven’t had the time to find new recipes to try. Until I spotted this that is. I found it on a random health website, which linked to this…

Savory & sweet cheese salad

Salads have been a go to meal for me for years now and I have come across some great combinations. My general rule of thumb is to add plenty of greens in the shape of lettuce and spinach and then pack with with more veggies with my basis usually being tomatoes and cucumbers. I like…

Recipe: curried chicken with veggie stir fry & mango

Time for a quick and easy recipe again. This is another one of those “buy-ingredients-and-throw-it-together” type dishes that make up most of my every day cooking. I felt like trying something different. I marinated some chicken with curry powder, made a quick green veggie stir fry and topped up the dish with diced mango and…

Healthy food shopping

It’s almost the start of a new month and that means that I tend to restock my cupboards with foods that last me longer than a week. Especially now that I’m home, I have time for preparing meals and trying out new things. So last week I found myself going to my local organic supermarkets,…

What’s in my pantry?

A few weeks ago I turned you all into the voyeurs that you are and allowed you a look inside my fridge. Since I keep mostly perishables in there, the content changes weekly, whereas my pantry is the place where I store all dry goods which last decidedly longer. Here’s what currently sitting on my…

What’s in my fridge?

I went and got groceries, filled up my fridge and thought: hey! Let’s take pictures of this for the blog! And so here you are looking at what I store in my fridge. I figured some of you might like to see this, as I’m still on my no wheat/ gluten, less dairy, less sugar…

Low Carb: three months & counting

It’s been over 3 months since I first started cutting down carbs, I started in early November. I started because all foods with lots of carbs were giving me stomachaches. I already wrote two posts here and here about my ongoing progress. I found it quite easy to start and by now, 3 months later,…

Low Carb: One Month Later

A little over a month ago I wrote how I’ve decided to drastically cut down my intake of carbs. Not because I want to lose weight, but because I found that my stomach starts doing flip flops and aches and cramps that I really didn’t want to deal with. Now, one month later I’m still…

My favorite food: sushi

I love to eat. I love food. I love cooking and I’ve written several posts about different quick and easy meals I’ve made, but I’ve never talked about my favorite foods. Since I like food so much, it’s very easy for me to have a favorite food. I’m willing to try everything and there are…

Oranges & me

I have a bit of a confession to make. Just the other day I ate an orange for the first time in my life. Yes, the first time. See, the thing is: I used to hate oranges. I have always loved all other types of citrus fruits. I love tangerines, lemons, limes and grapefruits, but…
