Roasted Vegetables with Mustard Horseradish Dressing

My work as a freelance food photographer and healthy recipe writer makes me browse for inspiration among hundreds of recipes weekly, and I often find myself cooking and eating the same thing every day because I don’t have the time to think about or make some proper food for myself. Most of the time it is a salad or a stew, and although it’s always something healthy, I often crave for some diversity. When I realize that, I try to …

Fall Salad with Beluga Lentils, Grapes and Roasted Pumpkin

After the incredible hot temperatures in the beginning of September, autumn finally settled in my neighborhood, right after the equinox.

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.

Nourishing bowls are the best way to get your nutrients in wintertime. We tend to eat in a hurry, often the same kind of food every day, without fresh ingredients, and we don’t provide our body the nutrients it needs to function correctly and to naturally detox day by day.

You can combine any of your favorite ingredients, as long as you make sure the bowl has a little bit of …
