Emotional Eating

It’s not new information that food and emotions are connected. Who hasn’t lost their appetite after some bad news? Or eaten more than they should, to heal a broken heart? Or ate a whole tray (or bag) of cookies and only noticed after there was nothing left? It happens. In my previous posts about how I …

My Weight Loss Journey – Pt. 1

I have lived many lives at this point. I had many different jobs. Lived in different countries. Had different dreams and life goals. But one thing has never changed for as long as I can remember. My struggle with weight. For as long as I can remember this issue always was in my life’s spotlight. Even …

Mushroom Tagine

I don’t know why, but when I make Middle Eastern or Asian food I get the best results. Since the first time I made a tagine, I was in love with the mix of spices and how the correct balance of sweetness, acidity, sour, salty and umami can create something truly special. I have tried this recipe …

Lentil Fritters

The one thing I learned in culinary school about vegan food, other than a not so great vegan aioli, was this lentil fritters recipe. As with everything, I changed a bit the recipe (the original fritter were deep fried, which is a big no-no for me), but they still taste great and this version is much …

Lemon Bars

I am a dessert person. When I saw this recipe on The Rawtarian’s site, I knew I had to do it. This simple but delicious recipe is amazing! It’s sweet and chewy, and the best – no sugar, flour, or dairy. I edited the original recipe a little (of course I did), but the result …

Sesame Seeds Bars

I love sesame seeds. So much I’ll eat it with honey as a dessert or a snack, so when I saw this recipe I knew it was perfect for me. It has more ingredients than what I usually like to use for one recipe, but it’s very simple. The result was incredible. You can really …

Tahini

There are some recipes that are so incredibly simple to make, yet it takes us forever to actually make it. That’s the case of tahini. I needed it to use in another recipe, and I had a lot of sesame seeds, so I decided to make it. Two ingredients, a food processor, and you’re done! Simple, …

Raw Brownies

The first time I made and ate raw brownies I was in awe. I couldn’t believe I had lived for so long without knowing about this. The recipe takes less than 5 minutes to make, has 4 ingredients and it’s delicious. Could this be any better? Yes! It’s sugar-free, gluten-free, and dairy free. That means …

The cheap way to weight loss

A lot of people believe that weight loss is an expensive process that requires a lot of money and special products and services. While some require medical support, most people are healthy and can solve all their weight issues with a balanced diet and exercise. I am usually very skeptical and I don’t like to …
