We are definitely creatures of habit. Every morning my darling hubby makes me a delicious breakfast of Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, nuts and flax meal. It is filling and full of protein. Sundays however is my day to make breakfast and I figure if he goes to all the [...]
Fish is an excellent source of high protein and other nutrients. Research over the past few decades has shown that the nutrients and minerals in fish, and particularly the omega-3 fatty acids found in pelagic fishes (costal/oceanic fish), are heart-friendly and can make improvements in brain development and reproduction.

It was a lovely summer day today. Warm, humid and everything is bright green from the recent rain. A day that I prefer to spend outside than in the kitchen preparing a hot meal. I got home from work at a decent hour and off I went for a 5km [...]

I love salads for dinner and this one filled me to the top!
These carrots are easy to make and full of flavour. I had a hard time finding zaa'tar (a blend of Middle Eastern herbs) but was able to make my own as an acceptable substitution. Get that recipe HERE. These carrots are a wonderful accompaniment to lamb or seared pork. Low [...]
