It's true what they say, you ARE what you eat. Nutrition is something that is so important yet most of us know very little about. At times we think we know the important facts, believing that we're being "healthy" and doing the right things, when in fact, we are not. The truth is pretty simple, though: the more uncooked and organic produce we consume, the better. I believe a well-nourished body and a healthy immune system can combat most, if not all, illnesses.
The recipe I want to share with you today is yet another favorite of mine from Gwyneth's book, It's All Good. Quick to make, this recipe is great for lunch or, when paired with a poached (or a runny sunny side up) egg, for a hearty Sunday brunch.
I've been getting a lot of requests to post healthy tips and recipes, lately. And since I love to make all of you happy, I've decided to start by sharing a recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow's new book. My sister-in-law can attest, I've been cooking up a Gwyneth storm this past month, trying out nearly half of her book already. Gisa is also in love, and together, we've become sort of "Gwyneth Groupies", messaging each other with comments and tips on the recipes we make.
Not even a severe-killer-annoying back pain could stop me from getting my bake mode on yesterday with Wunderkeks! To give you a little taste of our upcoming Charity Bake Sale, we have decided to share the recipe of their most recent best-seller: the s'mores bars (which will be available at the Bake Sale!).
Today I want to share a little recipe that I came up with while feeling way too lazy to cook a fancy meal and in a bit of a hurry to eat- because I was starving! Coming up with a quick dinner that is both healthy and fulfilling can be quite a challenge, but I wasn't ready to throw away all my efforts of healthy eating just because I was in a hurry to eat!
Once considered the "mother of all grains" by the ancient Incas, the Quinoa has now found its way from South America into my kitchen as a great substitute for rice, pasta and even couscous (I love to pair it with salmon). Extremely rich in protein (which include the 9 essential amino acids), this little grain is now growing in popularity among nutritionists and people in search of healthier and lasting weight loss alternatives.
With Valentine's Day now only a few days away, I decided to invite my dear friend Hans, from Wunderkeks, to teach me how to make one of my favorite cupcakes, ever: his version of the red velvet. Believe me, you haven't had a real red velvet until you've tried Hans' red velvet. There's nothing like it! So as you can imagine, I was extremely happy when he agreed to share his special recipe with us.
Hi everyone, I hope you had a very blessed Christmas. Who's ready for New Years? As you know, my husband loves to cook, so it was crucial for us to schedule a couple cooking classes throughout our trip; the first in Paris and the second in Thailand - cuisines we both love and cannot get enough of lately. Plus, I'm terrible in the kitchen, so attending few cooking classes wasn't a bad idea, after all.
Hello everyone, sorry for disappearing there for a while, there's just been so much going on! We’ll be moving homes soon so the whole house is a mess, and we're running around like chickens with our heads cut off to get it all done. Fortunately, we were able to take a little time off on Saturday to go out with friends. I've had my eyes on Carmen Gastrobar for a while now and we finally got a chance to go. We decided to get a bunch of starters so we could try a little bit of everything, and boy am I glad we did!
