Getting going on a Monday morning can be difficult. I am a […]
Listen, I am all about the smoothie breakfasts these days (in fact I have a smoothie recipe coming up soooooon as well!) but some days you just want to EAT something right? And finding a vegan/gluten free/dairy free/sugar free option is kinda difficult. I am not vegan – not yet anyway – but I do believe that avoiding meat in general is better for the planet AND ourselves. Besides, being allergic to eggs makes vegan breakfast kind of a natural decision. Now, it’s easy to be vegan if you are unhealthy. It is not easy to be vegan if you are trying to cut out wheat/gluten and sugar as well. That’s when you gotta start getting creative. Eating dinner for breakfast can be a thing, but sometimes rice and kale isn’t really that appealing before 7am in the morning…
If you are having people over and want a side salad to be a bit less boring than the usual green salad, try this rainbow salad. It’s got great fats, greens, and is low in carbohydrates. It’s suitable for raw vegans, Banters, people following paleo and is just darn good for you. Add whatever salad dressing you like: but good old olive oil and balsamic vinegar is always a good bet.
Happy Holidays everyone! (I know it’s not holidays yet but I highly doubt I will get to post something again before I jet set off to Bali. Mmmhmmm you heard me! BALI. Yay! So that said, festive greetings are in order – and, if you are anything like me, you’ve already started planning your Christmas lunch anyway.
Summer is here, finally! It always take a bit longer to settle into the Cape, but right now, it’s glorious. That means that all a lot of us want to eat are salads, fresh food and beautiful produce. In South Africa we are so blessed to have so much choice readily available.
That strange time between winter and spring is weird, it demands warm breakfasts yet tank tops and sandals. I needed a bit of morning warmth, so I adapted a recipe from Prava Singh’s healthy-eating blog, Naturally Nutritious Living (www.naturallynutritiousliving.co.za).
When I was in New York last year Kyla and I went to the Lindt store in 5th avenue we almost lost our crazy little minds over the little Lindt balls in the millions of different flavours. I thought I would have to wait YEARS to experience that again. But no. Lindt – Design Quarter and Sandton City – has brought the magic to South Africa. Coconut, Irish Creme, Strawberries & Cream, Caramel, Dark, Milk, White…. (Coconut is the best by the way).
