Keep Healthy Snacks At Work To Reduce Stress

It’s true that we should eliminate clutter, get organized, and create calm surroundings in our office in order to reduce stress. However, once all this is accomplished, we still have the stress of our workload. When work is

Cholesterol 3/3 – Statins Or A Change in Diet?

Cholesterol has been carrying a negative impact for decades.  I remember the saying “it’s not the bread but it’s the toppings”, but is it actually the bread to blame instead of the butter or eggs? To understand

Cholesterol 2/3 – Low Cholesterol Causes Depression?

The more I study about cholesterol and listen to the physicians acquainted on this, it seems clearer that one of the big misleading studies in the 1950s and ’60s was about

Cholesterol 1/3 – Low Cholesterol Risk For Brain Health?

Brain Toxins In Our Food – Sugar

Protein-Rich Nettle Bread – GF

This is the same dough as in the gluten-free Pizza Crust. The variety of protein-rich flours might seem a bit overwhelming, but you can just pick one protein-rich flour to suit your taste along with rice flour that gives the fluffiness for the dough. Psyllium, Xanthan and Arrowroot give some viscosity (to replace gluten). Dry ingredients […]

Protein-Rich Nettle Pizza Crust – GF

Just pick one gluten-free and protein-rich flour to suit your taste along with rice flour. Psyllium, Xanthan and Arrowroot give some viscosity (to replace gluten). Dry ingredients make altogether […]

Blueberry Cashew Cream

My children love this Blueberry Cashew Cream, which is such a healthy and fulfilling dessert! You can eat it on its own or add on any desserts, use for garnishing or place on top of your porridge or a thick smoothie. You’ll find some smoothie recipes on my website as well. For garnishing, I used some […]

Liquorice Root And Gingerbread Balls

The combination of sweet dates and gingerbread spices works amazingly well together! These spicy goodnesses are a great addition to the Christmas table. You can use a different set of spices for finishing touch to add a variety of flavours. I’ve used some coconut sugar along with berry powder, black sesame seeds and raw chocolate powder […]

Liquorice Root-Lingonberry Cheesecake – GF, No Refined Sugar

This dessert is a delicious mix of liquorice, sour lingonberry and sweet dates. You wouldn’t necessarily think an avocado could make a filling for a cake, but it can! Here it’s mixed with the lingonberries to create a creamy filling. You can lightly roast the seeds for the base before crushing, so their aromas become […]

Sea Buckthorn Breakfast Trifle – GF

This beautiful dish looks like a dessert and you can use it as one, but it’s so super nutritious that it even works as a breakfast. You can prepare the protein-rich chia pudding in the evening and combine the rest of the ingredients in the morning. This shouldn’t take more than ten minutes! Sea Buckthorn […]
