Dark chocolate quinoa cake with coconut cream and oranges

Hello my lovely readers! 

Today I’m writing a guest post for my friend Nadia over at Nature Insider.  When Nadia approached me to write a guest post for her blog, I knew I wanted to do something creative and unique. The result of countless days of debating what to make for her? A dark chocolate quinoa cake with coconut cream and oranges! With a video too!

You can read the full post and the recipe on my new blog, here. And for more healthy recipes, visit my other site.

 

My first food video – choco-coco hazelnut tea latte

Hello my lovely readers!

As you may already know, I went to a video editing workshop last week at the Ladies Learning Code and was itching to put all that I learned to practical use. I wanted my first video to be somewhat easy to shoot and nothing too complicated, so I decided to go with an easy, but delicious non-dairy milk tea made with chocolate hazelnut tea and coconut milk. So here it is!

So what did you think? I had a lot of fun making it, although I have to admit shooting yourself feels rather ridiculous. If only I had a camera-woman!

Anyways, moving onto the recipe…

In this post, I’ll share my experience, a few of my own raw recipes and some of my favourite online resources and guides to incorporating raw foods into your diet with ease. Read on..

Gluten-free baking with coconut flour-blueberry chocolate muffins

Hello my lovely readers!

As you may already know, I’ve been on on a gluten-free diet for the past two months (click here if you want to read more about why), and it can be a challenge at times. One of the hardest meals to figure out is breakfast! After years of being using to eating cereal or toast in the morning, it’s somewhat of a struggle getting used to just having fruit smoothies and eggs in the morning. Sometimes, I’ll have quinoa or amaranth pudding, but I miss biting into a muffin once in a while. That’s where these blueberry and dark chocolate breakfast muffins come in. They are made with coconut flour, coconut milk, blueberries, dark chocolate and other good-for-you ingredients. Read on for the recipe and more about coconut flour…

Today’s Beauty Eats recipe is for all those ladies that need a BREAK. We’ve done a number of skin-friendly recipes on this series, but to make things interesting, today we’re making a DIY mask. So ladies, kick back and take some “me” time this week…

……………………………………………………

Connie (from Chronicles of a Beauty Nerd) and I have been busy preparing for our first Beauty Eats live event for the last few days. We’re really excited about it and hope to see a few of you there! And for those of you who can’t make it, we are going to try posting a video soon after. Now with all the preparation, I’ve been a little lax with my regular skincare routine. So, I wanted to take some time out today and just relax. One of my favourite ways to pamper myself at home is with a DIY face mask.  But, this isn’t just any face mask. It’s rich, it’s luxurious and it’s oh so chocolatey…and best of all, you can eat it too! Well…..only if you really want to…

Chocolate smoothie

It’s the beginning of a new year and as expected, most of us have of resolutions. Problem is that it’s hard to stick to those resolutions unless you make them part of your lifestyle. It’s not hard, but it does require some effort. One of my resolutions for the new year is to eat breakfast every single day. Afterall, breakfast is the MOST important meal of the day,so you have to make it count! I plan to put an end to skipping breakfast this year in an effort to lead a healthier lifestyle.Sometimes, I’m not in the mood of eating in the morning, so I skip the meal altogether and end up feeling exhausted by lunch time. Not a good idea. If you’re not a morning person, a quick smoothie is always a great way to get the nutrition you need and this chocolatey smoothie is almost as good as dessert. Imagine starting your morning with blend of chocolate, berries, bananas and coconut… And it’s also great for your skin! Read on for the recipe and also beauty details from Connie at the Beauty Nerd.
