Bangkok. You will most likely love it or you will hate it. There are no more feelings than that for most travellers. Many people told me not to worry about Bangkok when travelling to Thailand and don’t spend too much time there because I won’t like it, as it is busy and chaotic, bustling with people, full of smells and the traffic there is never ending. And they were right about it. Except one fact. I loved it!
Are you a sweet breakfast person? Or do you better give way to the beautiful satisfying savory heaven like eggs and bacon in the morning? Yeah, I guess you can say which brekky I prefer. The only sweet exception would be probably breakfast bowls as you can see in Chocolate Protein Smoothie Bowl. However when I have the time I would definitely go for the salty version. Like I did this morning with the Coconut Flour Savory Pancakes.
It’s still such warm weather here in Australia which for me means lots of BBQ and lighter meals. That’s why I made the Sticky Ginger Chicken Wings yesterday (we were so hungry that I just wasn’t able to make pictures, but I will be definitely making the wings soon again) and this Asian Style Coleslaw on a side. At least the salad is served cold so I could snap a couple pics before dinner.
It’s been almost a month since my last post. I can’t believe that. Time went so fast. Well but I definitely got my lesson about planning the posting schedule better the next time. It’s not that I didn’t feel like writing. If you followed my Instagram or Facebook, you would know that I travelled a bit thru Thailand the last few weeks. And as much as I thought I would be able to write and post while there, it did not happened at all.
I love curry. All the possible versions of it. Meat or vegetarian, sweet or spicy, I’m for all. But let’s be honest, it can be quite a lot of work sometimes to make a nice curry at home. Especially when using beef or lamb the cooking process can take up to few hours. And that is exactly when Crock Pot comes in handy.
This recipe shows my (paleo friendly) version of one Eastern classic – savory Sauerkraut Soup with Klobasa (Paprika Sausage). This rich soup is a fixed star in the kitchens of Middle and Eastern Europe. Yet it has many forms as every Slavic country has their own interpretation of it and almost every family carries their own unique recipe.
Many of the mountain resorts these days offer much more than skiing/snowboarding. And Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun we’ve currently visited is definitely one of them. Everyday, every season they offer comprehensive services for demanding customers. Ready for glacier skiing? Or having a drink in an ice igloo? Maybe you prefer to relax in a wellness with a stunning view? Bathing in salty water under the stars? And what about exploring the beauty of the mountains from above in a balloon?
So, back to reality. When we returned from our amazing trip to Austria (I will totally write about it later) the real life stuff hit me pretty hard. We have just 3 weeks left before our trip to Thailand (and moving to Australia after that, you can read a bit more about it in the Big Step story) and I’m starting to freak out a little.
Looking for a recipe for some special Valentine’s treat? My Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes with Coconut Flour and Avocado Frosting have you covered! And you don’t have to have a bad conscience at all because these are totally gluten and dairy-free and using fruit and a tiny bit of maple syrup instead of sugar.
What are your plans for Valentine’s day this year? Do you celebrate this day somehow or do you think there is no need for that?
