As much as I love cooking, and food and of course writing about it, sometimes it’s nice to take a day off and have someone else do it for you. Luckily I have the loveliest older sister who is also as health orientated as I am, and  although to be honest she’s not the most keen or avid chef (she recently had to ask me how to make tea) on occasions when...

Ive previously mentioned and wrote about my love of the Thai cuisine, not just for it’s scrum-diddily-upmtious  light refreshing flavors but also for the immense health benefits that come from the simplest of their dishes.

Okay, so we all want to be healthy, we all want to be toned and fit and look good enough to be on the cover of Swimsuit Illustrated, and yes we’re dedicated enough to eat healthy and workout consistently to achieve that goal, because there’s no better feeling in life than feeling amazing in our own bodies!

On a frosty Saturday morning in early January there’s really only one thing I want for breakfast. The same thing my 2 and a half-year old nephew also wants… Pancakes!

I took a walk this morning on the country road near our house, and although the wind still whipped around with Winter’s bite, in those few quiet minutes where it died down I could hear the sounds of a waking Spring. That beautiful feeling of everything coming alive, of life and renewal, the little stream gushing with new found enthusiasm, the bird song elevated...

So after a weekend of hauling boxes out of the attic and turning the inside of our house into our own mini winter wonderland with Christmas trees, candles, holly wreaths, and a holiday express train that chugs in circles around our tree, carting trailers of miniature presents while shooting out little puffs of smoke… I realized there was only one thing left to do....

As I sit down to write I’m looking out on a perfect mid-winter’s day, with a silvery blue sky, crisp wind and a tingling air that’s alive with the anticipation of the coming festive season. I’ve been thinking of family and friends back in the U.S over this past weekend as they celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday. It started me thinking back to all of the amazing...

When people think about eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle one does not imagine the making and devouring of chocolate cupcakes smothered in a buttercream would play much of a role. But the fact is they are almost crucial to living a healthy life… How? You ask! Well, here’s my reasoning. Someone once told me that we are here on this earth for the simple...

One of the nicest things about my recent trip to Paris was the chance to taste some French …Spanish? cuisine. Yes, Spanish. You see, my friend’s boyfriend Alvaro hails from the south central Spanish city of Jaen and while my friend Jillian and I explored the French churches and Parisian bistros during the day, we returned to the smells and tastes of mulled wine,...

I have a lot of lazy days where, when come lunch time, I really don’t want to go to loads of trouble to make myself something both yummy and healthy to eat. Although I love doing it, I’m really not up for baking loaves of gluten-free bread everyday, or making big batches of soup although I know my sisters, with their constantly rumbling bellies, would like it...
