3 Ingredient Vegan Chocolate

I know you’ve probably been caught up in the whirlwind craze of the superfood cacao, but there’s another incredibly nutritious chocolate worthy of your attention. Yes, it’s slightly more processed, fermented and roasted, but cocoa also holds some pretty impressive properties. Cocoa butter is extracted from the oils of the cocoa bean, which is loaded with …

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 …

Vegan Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate and Walnuts. Gluten Free

Creating healthy desserts that are in line with your particular lifestyle can be a challenge for some. As a vegetarian and most of the times, a vegan, I give a strong focus to high protein, earthy foods, where you’re able to include a sufficient intake of vitamins and minerals, avoiding the use of animal products when it doesn’t make sense. I’m sure you would agree that nothing beats home cooking when it comes to healthy desserts! That’s why this vegan pumpkin bread might just …

Protein Power Snack With Chocolate And Cashew

Spring is playing with us these days, and temperatures seem to simply go crazy even with 10ºC differences from one day to another. I didn’t have much time to enjoy the trees blooming, because in a few days the temperature dropped and the wind blew away all the petals. When I was a child, trees were blooming in April, and spring was slowly passing. Today, I don’t know if tomorrow is going to be winter or summer. Climate change is not only a cool way to spice up your Oscar speech, it’s something our bodies face every day, challenges their …

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 …
