In the mood for Thai but not sure if you prefer soup or salad? No need to decide! This Thai Fusion Veggie Noodle Salad offers the best of both worlds: a plethora of veggies, loads of chewy Konjac noodles and an explosion of delicious Thai flavors. All cravings addressed!

I came up with this salad recipe last week, on a night where I really was in the mood for a hot bowl of Thai Coconut Curry Soup but sadly didn’t have all the necessary ingredients. Plus, also felt like I needed to whip up a huge salad, because I had a bunch of veggies that were in dire need of getting used up. 

So, I decided to sort of fuse both dishes together, — hence the name Thai Fusion Veggie Noodle Salad — so I would get the best of both worlds. 

I totally played it by ear and didn’t measure or write anything down: I just used a little bit of this and a little bit of that and let my creativity (and the content of my fridge) guide me. But the resulting dish was so crazy yummy that I ran to my office the second I finished eating to write down every single ingredient that I’d used to make it. I just had to share this recipe with you, and well, log it so I would get to make it again, and again, and again. continue reading

Got 2 minutes? Great, because that’s all you’ll need to whip up this super delicious Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding. And I’m not even exaggerating. 

Indeed, your active role in the realization of this beautiful breakfast, snack or dessert, summarizes in throwing a handful of ingredients into a magic bullet or food processor, give them a good swirl, stir in some chia seeds and then transfer this lovely mixture into bowls or glasses and pop this all straight into the fridge. 

Then the chia seeds will start working their magic; they’ll slowly expand and soften up and do what it is that only chia seeds know how to do: produce that yummy gel-like coating that we all dig so much. (of course, chia seeds will do way much more than just that for ya! You can read all about their multiple health benefits in this brilliant article). 

Seriously, if there is one treat that you can enjoy without feeling one tiny bit guilty, this would be it. It tastes crazy good, but it’s even better FOR you! It’s a total win-win thing. 

And if raspberries weren’t your thing, don’t let that stop you. Try subbing blueberries, strawberries, mango, bananas, pineapple, or any other fruit that you happen to like!  continue reading

You know the song, right? “If you don’t eat yer meat, you can’t have any pudding – How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat yer meat?”

Well, forget all about that! This pudding right here, you can totally have regardless of what you have — or haven’t — eaten prior! In fact, it’s a nutrition powerhouse disguised as dessert: we’re talking avocado, coconut, cacao powder, chia seeds, dates… all things that are super good for you!

But don’t go thinking that it tastes like bird or rabbit food, though. In fact, this stuff tastes even better than the “just-add-milk-instant-powdered-stuff” and has a far superior texture, too! It’s silky, velvety, soft but somewhat firm, almost like a mousse, but without being too airy, either. It’s perfect in every possible way! 

And the best part is, it’s just as quick to prepare as the aforementioned “just-add-milk” stuff…

Try it once, you’ll be hooked for life!
