For outsiders who have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s in the spring that we tap the maple trees, put on our best plaid shirt and enjoy traditional dishes and maple products at the sugar shack….
In my last few travel posts, I told you everything about all the vegan food we ate during our 4-day stay in London, after which we hopped on a bus/ferry all the way to Galway, a small and colourful city on the west coast of Ireland.
Galway was our base to explore the unspoiled surrounding regions. We chose to be driven around and opted for two organized tours with Galway Tour Company. I had so many pictures that I had to divide them up into two different posts. You can find the first one about Connemara, the most magical location I’ve had the chance to visit in my life thus far one post back, by clicking here: Chasing rainbows in Galway, Part 1.
We’re back from our incredible honeymoon in Sri Lanka! We wouldn’t have mind staying over there for a few more weeks, recharging our batteries in the sun like lizards, but we had to come back to reality eventually… So we headed back home with our heads filled with memories.
And super motivated to get creative in the kitchen, just in time for spring.
Hummus is one of those things that once you discover you can’t get enough of. At least that’s how it is for me. I love it so much that I’ve found many ways to enjoy it other than with a platter of veggies. For example I often thin it down with water, garlic and a few spices and use it as a great mayo replacer (in sandwiches but also to dip my fries), as a salad dressing, etc.
I must admit though that most of the time I’m super lazy and buy it from the store, but it’s so easy to make that there’s really no reason not to. Unless you’re in Québec and have access to Fontaine Santé hummus, the best brand out there! Everytime I come home, I’m surprised and delighted by their new flavour combos, including ginger & sesame, kale & chia, Moroccan… Because really, hummus combinations are endless and the company understands most people’s passion for the stuff.
Hey guys! I am so excited to finally tell you all about our trip to Ireland, one of the most memorable countries I’ve ever visited. A couple weeks ago I covered Galway, a small and colourful city located on the West coast. While it’s fairly lively and fun to explore, there isn’t much to do besides enjoying an evening in one of its pubs drinking Murphy’s beer or attending a festival in the summer.
Why did we spend more than three days there then? Well, the surrounding region is, simply put, stunning and should in no case be overlooked! It is a land of breathtaking scenery, sheep and magic. Oh, and did I mention the sheep? You’d think that one would tire of seeing them, but no. I pointed each and every one of them out to Martin, excited as a child….
Valentine’s Day is around the corner! But since we demonstrate our love for one another daily, Martin and I mostly seize the day to stuff our face with chocolate. Okay not Martin and I, just I… #chocolateaholic
This year will be our first VD as newlyweds! But we wont even be celebrating together because Martin has to go back to Sweden for work… again. But this time I get to go meet him there! I’ll be in the Swedish capital from Wednesday to Sunday and I’m super excited about it!…
Did you know that you can make a latte without using milk? Yup! All you need is water… and cashew nuts. And ideally a high-speed blender. If you don’t have one, keep on reading, you can still make the recipe :)
The result is incredibly creamy and is convenient when you just drank the last of your favourite milk. I found today’s recipe on Dr. Greger’s Instagram feed. For those who still don’t know him, he’s a renowned physician specialized in nutrition and he’s the brain behind the website Nutrition Facts, a bible in plant-based nutrition….
Oh, sorry, did I startle you? I’m just so excited I can barely contain it.
So yeah, from March 2nd to the 21st we’ll be exploring this fascinating island and eating all the spicy food and the tropical fruit! We wanted to go somewhere special for our honeymoon and I think we picked the perfect destination. What do you think? Have you been? I want your suggestions!…
Who would have thought that green soup was such a crowd pleaser? I for one had no idea. Until I started publishing pictures of it on Facebook and Instagram. The response was so great that I felt compelled to share my recipe on the blog. I’m also happy to report that it’s a breeze to make.
All you have to do is chop up some vegetables, throw everything into a big pot with veggie stock and voilà, 20 minutes later you’ve got soup! And a super duper healthy one at that.
It’s become our go-to post workout lunch. I know, it’s hard to believe but we’ve been hitting the gym four times a week since the year start and we love to eat (read devour), something warm and comforting, but also light and quick to make, when we come home. Patience isn’t one of our virtues, especially not when our stomachs are growling. …
After a few weeks of eating and drinking too much, sleeping too little and kissing too many oncles and aunts, odds are that many of you aren’t at the top of their form. I can relate. I used to always get sick after the Holidays, often even right in the middle.
But now that we haven’t been spending Christmas in Québec and that I regularly drink preventive beverages, I haven’t been sick. Never more than a runny nose! Such as my flu-fighting infusion, which is so popular that it reached the second place on the 10 most viewed recipes of 2016, and the three versions of my immune-boosting orange juice I’m sharing with you today.
