All my recipes are simple to make but delicious! Recipes are gluten-free, no added sugars and mainly plant-based. If added any dairy products, only organic, full-fat and usually goat’s or sheep’s milk.
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 […]
Ok, I went a bit crazy with the variety of flours to make the pizza dough! You don’t necessarily need so many different types of flours. 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
I absolutely love this healthier version of an Asian style sweet potato pudding with little tapioca pearls! Tapioca has only a mildly sweet taste but also a lovely “mouth-feeling”. This may not be something you have got used to in Europe but I warmly recommend trying it – another way to replace processed and sugary desserts. […]
Raw Lingonberry Cheesecake – GF, Dairy-Free, No Refined Sugars
I’ve had to learn a whole new sugar-free lifestyle to support my own healing. It’s been a long journey and only little by little I’m finding new ways to enjoy food and delicacies without refined sugars. After doing this for so long, I don’t really have sweet cravings anymore but I still want to enjoy something […]
The combination of chocolate and mint is without comparison! Did you know that there are around 15-20 plant species of mint such as peppermint and spearmint? Chocolate Mint is also one of those species and something that I grow in my own tiny garden. I loooove the scent and flavour of it! Not forgetting that I’m […]
A sweet way to get probiotics even for the kids ☺️. There are mango, lemon, strawberry and blueberry flavours. You can use berry powders in case fresh berries are not available. Coconut nectar and vanilla powder are adding sweetness.
A quick salad that I made for supper. It was inspired by a Moroccan restaurant where I had a delicious dinner with my friends last week. A great combination of roasted (or steamed) broccoli, chickpeas and pomegranate “pearls”!
Healthy Mango Ice Cream – GF, Dairy-Free, No Added Sugars
Is it even possible that an ice cream could be healthy? Well, I think so. There’s only coconut nectar or organic honey adding the sweetness along with mango, but otherwise, there’s no added or refined sugars in this recipe. You can even replace the coconut nectar or honey with organic stevia extract and there will […]
This smoothie is great for a breakfast or lunch. It contains not only important nutrients but also a fibre that makes you feel satisfied for longer. In addition to staying fuller for longer these types of dietary fibre work as prebiotics feeding the probiotics and enabling the friendly bacteria to flourish in the gut. To be […]
An excellent combination! Sweet, sour and spicy along with the nice texture and mild taste of black bean spaghetti which is totally vegan and gluten-free option. You can always change the ingredients of the recipe as you like. Even the ingredient amounts are not that precise, so just throw them all in and mix. Some […]
I made this smoothie bowl with cashew cream for my kids today and they thought it’s super yummy! You can find some smoothie recipes on my website. But a smoothie can be simply a blend of avocado, banana, berries, coconut oil, almond milk (or any other milk or water) and a variety of nuts and seeds. […]
Just to make an everyday life a bit easier, I usually keep these pre-made roasted rosemary vegetables in the fridge for later use. They are easy to use and super nutritious for breakfast, lunch or as a side-dish for dinner. Roasted veggies will last about 4-5 days in the fridge. For this breakfast, I only […]
You can find this Crazy Easy Chocolate recipe here. This time I used cashew nuts and millet pops for filling. Some health benefits of the ingredients: Cashew nuts Cashews are high in protein but more importantly, high in heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, including oleic and palmitoleic acids. Cashews are also a good source […]
Commercial gluten-free products from supermarkets often make me mad! Not only they are super expensive but they usually offer zero nutritional value what so ever. The only good thing is the absence of gluten, but that’s it. Commercial gluten-free products can be highly refined and processed and they are commonly made from purified starches such as maize starch, […]
It’s movie night in my family and the snacks don’t always need to be unhealthy, right? I prepared some Curly Kale Chips, Raw Cacao & Orange Energy Bars, Apricot Energy Bars and Crazy Easy Raw Chocolate with quinoa pops and cashew nuts. The drink I made might be a bit surprising for movie night and not […]

How to make an everyday life a little bit easier? I always try to keep some roasted vegetables in the fridge for later use. These seasoned veggies are so easy to mix and match with a variety of protein foods such as meat, fish, eggs or perhaps some high-fat goat cheese. Or just to enjoy […]

Sauerkraut & Baby Spinach – Probiotics for Breakfast!
Because sauerkraut is fermented, it’s rich in probiotics – a live bacteria that support the beneficial microorganisms in your gut. Sauerkraut is also high in fibre and contains nutrients such as iron, calcium and vitamins A, C and K. You can make your own fresh batch of sauerkraut at home (I’ll get into that a […]
Raw Cacao & Orange Energy Bar – No Added Sugars | GF
Every now and then I end up buying ready made energy bars. Usually, if I’m in a hurry, or just haven’t had time to prepare my own snacks while travelling. But every time I disappoint a little bit about the ingredients of the energy bars as they tend to contain, for example, canola oil (most canola is chemically extracted using […]
Raw chocolate couldn’t be any easier to make than this! That’s because the recipe doesn’t contain cacao butter but instead, coconut oil which is quicker to melt (and you don’t need to grate anything). Just basically mix all the ingredients together, spread on a container, let the chocolate freeze for about 15 minutes and enjoy!
Energy Bites – Strawberry & Liquorice Root (gluten-sugar-free)
I’ve been wondering what to do with the liquorice root powder I had bought earlier this year. The can was waiting in my kitchen cabinet to be discovered until I finally figured out what to do with it. Liquorice and raspberry are a common combination, but I couldn’t find any raspberry powder from my nearest healthy food store so […]
I’m so excited about my new Energy Bites flavours! Earlier I made a post about Gingerbread Balls, but now it was time to more fresh flavours since the spring is on its way. There are 2 new flavours, Strawberry-Liquorice and Lemon. They contain a lot of energy – good fats and protein. I consider my […]
I love the taste of roasted vegetables! Especially al dente onions and garlic are my favourites. There are usually some leftover veggies, so I use them the following morning for the breakfast along with
