Food / 29.11.2017

On a sunny afternoon like today I can't help but be transported to my days spent in the heart of Sicily. The blistering heat, the rock beaches & the fresh food market right outside my apartment packed with stall after stall of pure organic produce. Bloody Heaven! But my fondest memory is Signora Elisabetta teaching me how to make her version of Lemonade. Mint. Freshly Squeezed Lemon. Water. Ice. E Voilà...

Waking up rested, refreshed & surrounded by two big invisible hands filled with glorious sunshine. My god, I forget how simply beautiful life can be when you find meaning in this world. Actions. Our days are filled with "doings" - you're either "coming" or "going," but universally we all have a purpose. We have desires. We flourish & grow. We falter & fall. We make choices. When you do find your true calling, what galvanises you, what makes you giddy & light up like a neon sign there is...

"Sardines con Verdura" - classic Italiano homestyle cooking! I seriously can't get enough of oily fish at the moment. My body is loving all those good fatty acids that I'm loading it up with! And to top it off nonna's chicory & endive handpicked from the garden, boiled & cooked in @terramadre coldpressed extra virgin olive oil. I am totally channelling my inner "Napoletana Goddess," here in my kitchen. Oh, and to wipe up all that oily goodness I paired this dish with my homemade hemp protein crackers. Perfect little ketogenic...

For years my training routines consisted of HIIT programs - boxing, sprinting, weightlifting, you name it I did it! Physically & mentally I was pushing myself to my limits - and don't get me wrong, at the time it was beneficial for my health & wellness. But last year I experienced a major - how do I put this delicately? No, I'm just going to be blunt! I received a big old "slap in the face" that made me shift gears. I no longer had the urge to...

Let's talk gut health - but more importantly how to introduce foods & drinks gradually into your lifestyle without shocking your system. There is no quick fix. To heal, shift & change takes time - so, remember to be patient with yourself & the process. The answer. Probiotics. Probiotics. Probiotics. This word is thrown around a lot BUT for good reason because they are essential in healing our precious tummies. Because let's face it, when something buggers up we say "I should have followed my gut instinct." If there...

I call myself an "intuitive little baker," as I just can't help myself when it comes to recipes - I throw caution to the wind & make alterations that suit my tastebuds. And boy, oh boy are these babies packed full of goodness. I made 3 types of crackers: Flaxseed Meal, Hemp Protein & Flaxseeds then my personal favourite pure Hemp Protein. Inspired by the charliefoundation.org recipes, these Ketogenic friendly delights are perfect for a light lunch or if you love an afternoon snack. I smothered them with a...
