Scrambled Tofu With Herbs.

This is a great alternative to eggs and a perfect example of healthy, clean, high protein and low fat breakfast. Add some berries or a grapefruit on the side and you have your healthy protein and lots of vitamins and antioxidants. Don’t skimp of fresh herbs – the more the better! Here I’ve […]

Simple, Nutritious And Delicious Avocado Protein Shake.

Well, the title says it all and it is true. This is perfect for breakfast on the go, when you just couldn’t get out of bed in time (like me today) to make yourself a proper breakfast. As usual, this recipe allows variation. For instance, the protein can be of any flavour and […]

Low Carb Pasta With Vegan & Nut-Free Pesto.

This was the first time I cooked low carb Dreamfields pasta and the result was wonderful! I prefer to stick to a low GI diet, so I used to buy wholegrain pasta before, but no matter what brand and price band I went for, the result was always the same – it was […]

Stuffed Orange.

This is not a recipe but rather an idea that I would like to share. I don’t have anything decent looking for serving soft desserts like puddings. My ramekins are too small and the rest of the wares are not pretty enough. So I’ve spotted this idea of serving a pudding in the […]

King Prawns In Spicy Orange Sauce.

I found the original recipe at myrecipes.com, but as usual, I had to change it to my requirements. I swapped canola oil for coconut oil, because I try not to use vegetable oils in my cooking as they are unstable and provide too much PUFAs. Coconut oil compliments spicy food very well, […]

Soft Vegan Brownies.

These delicious, soft, melt-in-your-mouth brownies are completely guilt free. Not only they are vegan, baking with ground almonds and agave nectar instead of sugar makes them low-GI, wheat and gluten-free – heavenly! You can substitute Agave nectar with Xylitol if trying to avoid fructose.

Yields 12 squares.

Breakfast Blueberry Smoothie.

This smoothie is an adaptation of the one from Elana’s Pantry – one of my favorite recipe blogs. It is packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, fibre, healthy fats and makes a perfect breakfast or post-exercise shake. Soy lecithin is optional, but I always like to add it to my drinks for its brain […]

Ginger And Chestnut Festive Cheesecake.

Chestnuts in various forms have become my favorite ingredient. Who would have thought that a simple nut can be so versatile and bring out wonderful flavours in dishes all year round, not only during Christmas. I particularly like desserts made with chestnuts and this is one definitely my favorite so far – I […]

Spelt And Buckwheat Bread.

I have been trying to experiment with a combination of different flours to reduce the amount of gluten intake. So far, I’ve tried 100% brown rice bread, which was not good at all, and a combination of rice and spelt flour made the bread taste nicer, but the texture was a bit too […]

Mushroom And Chestnut Omelet.

I absolutely love chestnuts! It is a very versatile ingredient, that I use in both savoury and sweet dishes. Chestnuts are very low in fat, unlike other nuts, but very filling. So this is perfect Autumn breakfast: fast to make, filling and comforting, yet low in fat. For this recipe, I use Merchant […]
