Beetroot Hummus

This beetroot hummus is a bit of a spin on the classic one and a great thing to have on hand for a little healthy snack with veggie sticks, to spread on your toast (that + avocado on top is just perfect) or to add some nice bright color to your favorite bowl. And because…

Peanut Butter Slice

Vegan, refined-sugar free, gluten-free, low on carbs while packed with all the good fats and protein, these little slices are a lovely nutritious snack when you feel like a little treat. And they are incredibly filling so a great go-to on a busy day, when you don’t have time to prepare your meals as well….

Buckwheat and Cocoa Biscuits

Besides being such a festive month December is also a month when, at least in Slovenia, biscuits are being baked even in homes they usually aren’t. Consequentally there is a lot of them going around and a lot of them being eaten. And of course the crunchy, buttery, sweet ones are lovely but after a…

Green Smoothie Bowl

A great breakfast on the go if you make it a smoothie, or a super pretty a bit more filling one if you make it as a bowl. Not too sweet either and packed with fibre, omega-3, protein, vitamins and minerals. And the color is just so pretty. It’s works great if you make it…

“Concrete” cake

Before returning back to Slovenia and getting back to all the whisking, piping and scraping that a cake requires, I wanted to refresh my caking skills and see some of that lovely Australian sharp edges being crafted on one in action. Luckily, one of the most inspiring cake decorators, creating under the brand The Don’t…

Coconut & Mango “Ice-Cream”

Every month or so I accidentally make a breakfast that I then like way too much and become obsessed with it for a couple of months, making little variations on it. The latest was this breakfast ice-cream/frozen smoothie bowl for which you actually need only 3 ingredients and they’re all pretty good for you. It…

Kombucha

  One of the amazing things I got acquainted with here in Australia is definitely Kombucha. Not only it is super refreshing and delicious but has numerous amazing benefits as well. It is detoxifying (hello glowing skin and good-bye hangover), an amazing probiotic restoring the balance in your body (works amazingly after antibiotic treatments),  immunity-boosting…

Green Smoothie

This veggie smoothie is my new favorite way to start a day, so refreshing, hydrating, and an amazing way to get the proper dose of greens into the system. I used to be a bit afraid of putting too many veggies in smoothies and juices and started this one with some mango and orange juice…

The El-Nido Salad

It was a couple of years ago, on the Palawan island in the Philippines, where travelling with my family we have stumbled upon this amazing little cafe/restaurant in the town of El-Nido. Almost never does it happen that we would go out to eat in the same place twice while travelling, but this place was just…

Multi-Grain Porridge

I’ve posted this recipe quite a while ago but have been giving it some different spins and found this version that I like best, so here it goes, the updated one… If you ever run out of breakfast ideas and you want to include some more whole grains in your diet you may want to give…

Vanilla Crescents

  Summer may be in full swing here in Australia, but if this is the first December, January, February etc.  you’ve spent living on the Southern hemisphere it’s hard to completely forget the little winter notions these months bare. And one of those traditions are definitely these almond/vanilla crescent cookies. Covered in the little bits of icing…

Crunchy, Healthy Granola

One of my favorite things on the breakfast menus here in Sydney are definitely all the million different granola/fruit/yoghurt combinations, and I’m always super inspired to see all the various ingredients the chefs pair together. But it all starts with a nice granola base, and what better way to have it whenever you like than…
