Curried Red Lentils

Curried Red Lentils

I love spicy food and that  very much reflects on my cooking. I just think spices hold almost magical powers to absolutely transform recipes, develop deeper lingering tastes and open up entirely new possibilities.

Kale, red cabbage and lentil salad

Kale Red Cabbage and Lentil Salad

I love the combination of kale and red cabbage, they are so perfectly complementary. With a strong pairing like that to start with, not a whole lot more is needed to arrive at a great salad. Pickles, parsley and a vegan mayo based dressing to brighten it all up, and green lentils to up the protein game. Nutritious, super simple and versatile, here is the recipe:

Curried Pumpkin Soup

I love the fall season and everything seasonal, including pumpkins everywhere! But I must confess I do struggle with the sweetness of pumpkin in a soup sometimes. That is unless it is curried!

Oh and the recipe for the pastry roll is below:

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Donut Holes

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Donut Holes

A super easy, no-cook peanut-butter chocolate dessert that is deliciously addictive and as guilt-free as they come! Inspired by This Rawsome Vegan Life which is one of my favorite blogs kept by one of my favorite persons <3

I am a big fan of bite-sized treats that can be kept in the freezer, because I can just grab one little piece with my tea or coffee anytime I want and not run the risk of binging on a whole cake. Although making this particular one on a whim wouldn’t be a big deal either. No cooking, baking whatsoever and takes mere minutes to make, here is the recipe:

Threesome Protein Salad

Threesome Protein Salad

Threesome protein salad with quinoa, brown rice and green lentils; a delicious and satisfying powerhouse of protein and fiber.

We have been gradually increasing our workout intensity as a family. Starting with a foundation of yoga and cardio, we added rock climbing and calisthenics elements. As overhyped as the protein argument is, we needed to increase the quantity accordingly.
