Hello my lovely readers! Hope you all had a great weekend…
As for my weekend, it was pretty awesome! The weekend started off with a video editing workshop hosted by the Ladies Learning Code. I was a little hesitant to go to an all-day workshop on a Saturday, but this event was worth every minute. I had the chance to learn so much about video editing in so little time. A big thanks to the ladies who organized the event and to BizMedia for coming out and teaching us! I’m very excited to start working on my first recipe video this week!
After the workshop, I celebrated my birthday with a bunch of close friends and hubby dearest. After a late night of singing at karaoke, I had to spend Sunday being lazy. Just spent some time relaxing at home and also basking in the summer sun. The perfect Sunday in my opinion!
Anyways, I know I had promised to have the redcurrant recipe out last week, but clearly that didn’t happen because of everything that was going on this weekend. But it’s here now…So I present to you the redcurrant and yogurt “dip” / “spread” which is a great condiment to put on top of quinoa, rice or any other grains or even salad. I even had this dip with homemade chicken fingers the other day and it was pretty darn good. Read on for the recipe…
Hello my lovely readers!
Today I wanted to take some time and talk about one of the things most of us love to hate – FATS! There was a time when I was on the low-fat bandwagon and everything I bought from the grocery store had to be low-fat. After all, isn’t that what every magazine and dietitian was telling us to do? I was all about the low-fat dairy, the low-fat cereals and everything else you could imagine. I actually thought I was doing myself a favour by eating that way. But, I really didn’t feel any better following that dietary advice, nor did I lose any weight. The worst effect of the so called low-fat diet was the poor state of my skin. It felt parched and dull! So obviously, I left the low-fat bandwagon and I haven’t turned back.
Read on for more about my experience with fats (good and bad) and for a chilled soup recipe made with avocado, fennel and kefir with lots of mint for an unbelievably refreshing flavour!
