When fall and winter arrive, I am so so bad at eating fruits. I don’t know what it is but I don’t really fall for apples, pears and oranges. Devouring an entire basket of fresh cherries, that’s quite an easy game for me! But when it comes to peeling an orange and putting it in my mouth, I just can’t. I’ve created this smoothie to help me get more vitamins during the winter months because even though I’m picky, my body really needs it!
Nothing is too spicy to make these fall days brighter to me. Well except for real spicy Indian food that I can barely stand (I become so red in the face that it looks like I just got the first sunburn of my life J). You will love this homemade vegan latter if you: 1) decided to boycott Startbucks for a while (even if you know deep down this is not going to last in the long run), 2) need one cup of latte a day and 3) love everything spicy.
Who wants to get a shot of vitamins in the most delightful way? I’m taking advantage of the last days of summer to have a last red fruit treat and decided to throw together a healthy smoothie just for me.
A fresh and exotic treat like this strawberry and ginger smoothie isn’t something you can say no to. Even if you already had dessert! It was getting so hot in Vancouver this summer that I was constantly making homemade drinks like this rosemary lemonade or this rooibos & blueberry iced tea.
Finally got my first bottle of green spirulina just in time for the beginning of the cold season. Since I'm drastically cutting back on meat, I just try to make sure I have all the nutrient inputs I need. Spirulina is a super food as you might know, providing you with tons of super important nutrients such as protein, vitamin B1, B2 & B3, copper, iron and the list goes on and on...
Coming back from Salt Spring Island the other day, I wanted to try a new cold drink recipe inspired from a drink I ordered for the first time at the Tree House Coffee: homemade rosemary lemonade. I never buy soft drinks...
Summer is here! Sometimes, it can get pretty boring drinking just plain water but I wouldn’t go down the soda road for anything in the world. I bought the rooibos and blueberry tea by Rishi because I was running out of tea and when I had my first cup I thought that it would be perfect for a homemade iced-tea recipe. And it is!
Detox drinks are not synonymous with starving or fasting, they’re just a nice way to get your body back on track and clean it from inside out.
February is drawing to a close and winter doesn't seem to go away in Vancouver. I like to keep warm and cozy with tea, herbal tea or lattes. Moving to Vancouver a few months ago, I was thrilled to discover new products and new brands that we don't have in Europe. That's one of my favorite things to... Continue Reading →
