According to the latest news it looks like it will be a while before we can travel again… Which is a really sad piece of information for those who like us love to travel the world and experience different cultures and of course their food. But we have to believe that these restrictions are for the best and we will be able to explore the world again as soon as possible. In the meanwhile, let’s bring the world to us. Through cooking of course. I’d start with our trip to Vietnam, where we would eat one thing on the daily. The famous Vietnamese twist on a French baguette – Banh Mi. Delicious combination of all the fresh flavours you can possibly imagine packed together in crispy bread.
But as you know, this blog is about healthy eating and my recipes are mostly Paleo because that’s the way of eating that makes me happy, healthy and strong. And I would like to inspire others to eat well and show you guys, that healthy doesn’t have to be boring. That’s why I dared to switch the bread for lettuce and created Banh Mi Lettuce Cups (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb). So it’s a meal that we can eat every day all year long and not just while on holidays. I promise the flavour explosion is still going to happen 🙂
Are you full from all the Easter goodies and looking to cook something light and simple again? If your answer is yes, I might have just the right easy recipe for you. This Prawn Stir-Fry (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb) takes only minutes to make and it’s full of colourful veggies, lean protein and healthy fats.
In case that your answer is no, there is definitely a few options for more hearty meals on this blog too 🙂 Just search in the Recipes.
Now back to the Prawn Stir-Fry (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb). With Cauliflower Rice it will make for a perfect quick mid-week dinner.
Looking for a fast dinner option? Or something to pair with your weekend bevie? Forget the crappy takeout. You can make finger-licking “fast food” at home. Because there is nothing easier and cheaper than making chicken wings yourself. For next to no money you can use good free range chicken and real ingredients. Your body will be thankful for it, trust me. Try the Spicy Chicken Wings (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb) and see for yourself.
It’s not a secret here that I prefer to follow the Paleo way of eating, concentrating on whole, nutritious foods. That’s why I started this blog and share my kitchen creations regularly on my Instagramtoo. To collect my own recipes and hopefully inspire others. So I was super thrilled when the creators of Paleo Menu asked me to develop a whole weeks worth of recipes focusing on good whole ingredients for them. A perfect chance for me to show even more people that eating healthy can be fun and really easy too.
They call it Dream Paleo Week and I think not only the name, but the whole idea is amazing. If you sign up to their email list, every week you’ll receive recipes from passionate Paleo foodies like myself. So many fresh ideas every week! And yes, these Savoury Cauliflower Waffles (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb, Vegan) are part of the weekly menu.
After a couple of weeks I’m back with another Asian classic, this time visiting the kitchens of Thailand (at least in my mind).
Today I’ve decided to share my version of Pad Thai, because it’s one of the most popular Thai dishes, yet not many people make it at home. But it’s much easier than you think. And of course I tuned the recipe up a bit, so it’s as nutritious as possible. That’s why I’m using spaghetti squash instead of noodles. Because it’s delicious, healthy and super easy to cook with. If you can get your mitts on this special variety of squash, you should definitely give my Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb) a try. It’s packed with fresh amazing flavours and nutrients.
I just love Asian cuisine. But. It’s a known fact that most of the restaurants are using lots of sugar and sauces with crazy amounts of ingredients to add more flavour to the dishes. That’s why I often try to recreate a healthier option at home, using whole foods and ingredients that I can actually pronounciate. Of course some dishes are never going to taste the same when made at home (yes, I’m talking about you Ramen), but I think I came pretty close with this Beef San Choy Bow (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb).
Ok, this is probably one of the most convenient and easy family meals you can whip up any week night. Of course only if you don’t count in frozen dinners. But we are talking healthy here.
This Sausage Goulash (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb) is super simple to make even if you are not a cooking wizard and uses very affordable ingredients. Comfort in a bowl served in no time. Who wouldn’t like that, right?
Happy Monday, everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted a recipe in weeks, but my website actually underwent some serious issues and I wasn’t even able to log in. However, everything should be back to normal and I’m happy to share some recipes and travel tips with you again, starting with one of my current favourites – Laksa (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb).
I would like to say that I’m posting a soup recipe because it’s winter and it’s cold and soup is a perfect dish for this weather. That’s the right introduction, isn’t it? But well, that would be a lie. It is indeed winter in Australia right now. But it’s definitely not cold. I actually can’t believe how lucky we are here in Queensland with the weather. It is mostly sunny (Sunshine state?) and the temperature hardly goes bellow 18 °C. Crazy, right? So this is me, posting a recipe for Laksa (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb) simply because I like soups. Because I think that any weather is soup weather. Continue reading →
I just made the best salad ever. I honestly can’t stop drooling over it. It’s THAT good. So if you are looking for a side dish which would complement your weekend grilled specials, look nowhere else. I’ve got you covered with the Broccoli And Pumpkin Salad (Paleo, Whole30, Low Crab, Vegan). Also, there is actually no raw vegetable in this salad. So it doesn’t have that over healthy (and super boring) feel. But it’s crispy, fun and savoury. And it’s so much easier to digest. Honestly, you just have to try it. And don’t tell me if you don’t like it. Because it’s good. I know it 🙂
It’s definitely getting colder here in Aus and the lower temperatures are tempting me to eat all the comforting food. Anything warming, filling and full of flavour. And I think it’s ok to listen to my body and give it what it needs. Well yeah, if it craves fries I would think twice 🙂 But when it’s about hearty meals combining a good protein, bit of starchy vegetables and warming spices? Give it to me now. Because what is more satisfying in this weather than a generous portion of Moroccan Lamb Shanks (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)?
