Eggplant Lasagna Bolognese

Eggplant Lasagna Bolognese

Happy weekend guys! And happy weekend cooking! Have you ever tried the Eggplant Lasagna Bolognese? I know that in the paleo / Whole30 community it’s already one of the typical cliches (still one of my favourites), but I still have friends and family asking me about this dish. So even if it’s not any mind-blowing novelty, I’ve still decided to share my own version of it. For me it’s a perfect weekend meal.

Super Easy Leek And Sweet Potato Soup

Super Easy Leek And Sweet Potato Soup

It looks like winter might be finally coming to Brisbane. After a long time we woke up to a cold and rainy day today. Well, the temperatures are still similar to an average summer in Czech Republic, so it’s not that bad. And not that I like it, but I guess we need the rain every now and then. And finally the cooler weather is a good excuse for me to cook more soups. So I’m gonna start the winter season with this Super Easy Leek And Sweet Potato Soup.

Applying For Australian Partner Visa – Submitting The Application

Our Day

When I posted the article about Applying For Australian Partner Visa – Things To Know I promised to keep you updated on the other steps of the process as well, especially the actual submitting of the visa while being in Australia already. Because I know it’s quite a pain to figure this whole visa thing out. And how good it is to get some information about it from a real human. And I am happy to say that I can finally do so. Because after fearing that it got lost somewhere in the Atlantic ocean, my police check from Canada finally arrived. So now my application is all finished, submitted and I’m already a proud Bridging Visa holder, waiting for the result on my Temporary Partner Visa (subclass 820).

So how does the actual application process look like? Continue reading

What To Do In Bangkok

Jim Thompson's House, Bangkok, Thailand

Don’t get scared away when arriving to Bangkok for the first time. Yes, this city can be a bit overwhelming at the beginning. It’s full of people and even fuller of vehicles of all sorts. There are lots of new smells and flavours, not appealing to everyone at the commencement of the holidays. But if you give it more time, before quickly “escaping” to the islands, you will find yourself in a place that offers so much more than that. And it doesn’t have to be necessarily all about temples either.

So What To Do In Bangkok? Here is a list of my favourite things to do and spots to visit.

Chicken Gyros With Tzatziki

Chicken Gyros With Tzatziki

When you go to a Greek restaurant, which are your to go meals? I usually try to taste different foods as much as possible, but if I should pick my favourites, it would definitely be Moussaka, grilled octopus and last but not least Gyros. Chicken lamb or beef, give me all. Preferably as the whole set with some flat bread and Tzatziki too.

Anyway, by now you could probably notice that I am all about creating healhier (paleo-ish) versions of my favourite dishes. That’s why I decided to make a Chicken Gyros With Tzatziki at home as well. And I didn’t even miss on the bread. To draw in the detail I used Coconut Flour Savory Pancakes as the base for all the goodness which I am going to share with you below.

Whole30 Day 30 – This Is The End

Whole30 Day 30 - Lunch

Holy crackers, I made it! I didn’t die as I suspected. I survived all the 30 days without grains, dairy, legumes, alcohol and sugar! Instead of that I focused on whole nutrient foods, like meat and veggies, with occasional little treat in form of nuts and fruits. And it wasn’t so bad after all. What seemed really hard at the beginning turned out to be pretty easy over the time. The hunger faded away. The cravings got smaller. And even though I had 3 (sometimes 4) meals a day, I don’t have the urge to eat every 2 hours anymore.

Whole30 Day 29 – Almost There!

Whole30 Day 29 - Breakfast

OMG, only one more day and I am done with this thing. Oh, and I am ready. I am so ready. Well, not that I’m gonna stuff my face with donuts and fries the first day after this program. But I’m definitely excited about the fact that I won’t have to worry about the little things. And finally – I would be able to eat out! In a restaurant, people! While not making the staff uncomfortable and confused, just ordering from the menu (hopefully) like all the other customers. This is super exciting.
