Peanut Butter Granola Bars with Bee Pollen

Breakfasts on the run or afternoon snacks – if you’re dealing with a hormone imbalance, you need to be prepared with nutrient-packed bars to not hijack your diet and support a healthy hormone production throughout the day. Especially when your cortisol levels are high (especially when you’re under high levels), your body craves certain ingredients, like fats and sugars. I try to always keep in hand home-made bars for those times when I can eat a whole jar of …

Gluten-Free Granola Bars with Pistachio

The search for guilt-free, highly nutritious snacks is kind of a never-ending journey for me. But never-ending in a good way. I always find myself cringing at some of the daily snacks consumed by so many people I pass by as I go about my day. The common denominator seems to be high carb, high sugar and highly refined ‘foods’ straight out of plastic wrappers. Sure they’re great if you’re on the run and simply don’t have time for baking, but in the long-run they can be incredibly …

Millet Chocolate Energy Bars

There is more than one month until Easter, and I started my fasting time. I totally excluded eggs and cheese, and I’m basically on a vegan diet now. I’m not doing this for religious reasons, but actually to give my body a pause from metabolising animal protein. Fasting during spring is bliss, because there are so many fresh greens available at the farmers’ market, and it’s also a great opportunity to experiment with new ingredients. I’ve had a bag of millet in my cupboard for quite a while now, and it seemed to be just the right time to …

Raw Chocolate Almond Butter Fudge Bars

It’s been quite a few years since I excluded refined sugar from my diet and I have absolutely no desire for it, even when I see the creamiest, most lush, deliciously-flavored dessert. Well…except chocolate. When it comes to chocolate desserts, everything changes and my heart starts to beat faster and faster. I love Sacher torte, brownies, cupcakes, frosting, ice cream, and everything that involves chocolate. How do I manage to survive? The answer is…

Seed Cycling Balls for Hormone Balance – 2 Ways

Seed cycling was a big trend during the last years when hormone imbalances got a lot of attention from a lot of blogs and magazines. Without even knowing, some of us were somehow following the seed cycling schedule simply because we include a lot of seeds in our daily diet in the form of seed butter and tahini, or as a result of following a keto diet. As for myself, I always add seeds to my morning oats and sometimes in salads, but of course this doesn’t make me …

Ice Cream Cake with Peanut Butter and Chocolate, The Perfect Summer Desert

By 4

Sometimes life can get boring when you get caught in the same every day routine, other times a lot of things happen within short periods, making you feel like a totally different person from a week to another. Although I was away from my everyday routine for three weeks, wandering along the shores of Sicily, sipping Limoncello, eating Pasta alla Norma and turning 37 at some point in between, I don’t feel like…..
