Thai Cauliflower Rice Salad with Peanut Butter Sauce

Spring bloomed in force over here, turning all of us upside down. All of a sudden, the temperature raised from 0 to 13 degrees, the lilac bushes got tiny green sprouts, and the parks suddenly got crowded. After such a long time without seeing the face of the sun, its first rays put me in the mood to plan for holidays. No, we’re not going to Thailand yet (although I’d love to), but I’m celebrating the beginning of spring with…

Decadent Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast – Vegan and Gluten-Free

By 17

This recipe might be just what you need if you are living with a picky person when it comes to food, also comes in handy if you’re trying to introduce healthy ingredients into your child’s diet. It is very difficult to prepare a breakfast rich in minerals and healthy fats, especially for somebody who doesn’t really care about the nutrition and prefers something delicious, like my boyfriend does.

Am I the only one who roasts too much pumpkin? Autumn seems to be all about beta-carotene, and every few days I bake another batch of orange awesomeness. I’ve already used it in salads, curries, soups, and oatmeal, so I had to come up with something new to refresh our autumn menu. This lovely idea came to me this morning, when I was preparing the hemp milk for our smoothies. How about replacing the banana with …

I’m not really a fan of desserts, but if it’s something involving chocolate, you definitely caught my attention. As for these delicious treats – name one person who doesn’t love brownies! I think they’re my favorite dessert also, so I definitely had to find an option to include them in my healthy diet without worrying about the sugar or white flour load. I’m not a specialist in desserts, so I did a little research to find a recipe that fits my needs – gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and vegan. That’s how I came across …
