Matcha cocoa balls

Energy ball mania #4: Matcha matches cocoa (and almonds)

I know, it may be too much. But I can’t help it. Not only do I like energy balls, but when I make them, I want to have a choice, so I make different varieties at a time. So, here is number two of the weekend. For about 10, you will need: 110 grams date [+]

Tahini coconut balls

Energy ball mania #3: Tahini’s nuts for the coconuts

It is episode 3 in the series. I can’t get enough of the little power balls, so any time I find a new recipe for inspiration, I have to make them. I only don’t like sultanas as dried fruits, but anything else goes ! These babies are really really, I mean, really, really, seriously yummy. I [+]

Energy ball mania continues! The almond butters the cocoa

And so, the energy ball mania continues. I just made this, a batch to satisfy my daily chocolate cravings, tackle my energy slumps and meet my protein needs during all next week.

Peanut butter brownie balls

Energy ball mania! Peanut butter brownies in a ball

This energy ball mania comes from a dear friend of mine. She has such a sweet attention that every time she comes to Paris from The Hague, she brings me a variety of raw vegan energy balls. Right, they give energy, so I focus all my energy then in eating them all at once. It [+]

Zaatar sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes ‘n haloumi in zaa’tar

I ALWAYS have sweet potatoes at home. They are sweet yet healthy because rich in dietary fiber and beta-carotene. I just discovered the zaa’tar spice and add it to a lot of roasted dishes. It’s that great dark green mix you find on Lebanese pizzas. I prepare this recipe for Sunday dinners when I’m too [+]

Choco zucchini muffins

The leanest choco (& zucchini!) muffins

I made these a few times and they get better and better. I love the fact that they are moist and very chocolate-y, and therefore so so indulgent, and at the same time guilt-free. They are excellent when you have that chocolate craving (again! I have it quite often, hence my several chocolate-based recipes, check [+]

Matcha granola

Greening the breakfast: matcha granola

Here is an excellent breakfast recipe, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and full of nutriments and energy to last you through the morning. As it uses rice syrup, which is a slow-releasing sweetener, it is also adapted to all of you who want to cut on your sugar intake and/or gradually quit sugar. I don’t normally take the [+]

rice-with-kale-pesto-and-pistacchio

Dressing-up rice in kale & pistacchios

I rarely cook rice but I found this mix of brown, red and black wild rice at Le retour à la terre (this store is great, a good balance between choice and orderliness, both of which are never found in Parisian organic stores), and wanted to try it out. I found the perfect “green” recipe while going [+]

superfood-bread

The bread gets super

One of my favouroite Sunday afternoon entertainments are testing new vegan recipes. A few days ago I got Ella Woodward’s book Deliciously Ella (check out her great blog), from a very cherished friend, and I have been very excited about testing its recipes. Now, this recipe just smiled at me and I smiled right back at [+]
