Why You Should Stop Eating Refined Sugar

I’ve already touched on this in my Diet Tips post, but I strongly believe nothing good comes from sugar. Don’t get me wrong – I do eat the occasional sweet treat. You may have seen eclairs, chocolate fondants, and doughnuts sprawled across my instagram page. But I actually have a very firm line with these…

Hearty Stew that lasts for days

This is one of my recipes that I probably make the most often. It came from me wanting to make stew one time, and then deciding on the ingredients that “felt” most “stew-like”. It’s probably fairly similar to goulash, although I haven’t actually looked up how to make goulash, so I haven’t checked. I do…

10-minute Gnocchi in a creamy white wine sauce

Spending a lot of time pasta-less at home has given me a chance to think up some new recipes. First up was a spur of the moment decision today which turned out so amazing that I felt I needed to share it! I’m not even kidding it was like having restaurant food at home, and…

My Diet Tips

Hello friends! I thought I’d touch on diet today. And I mean the “change of diet” type diet, rather than the “going on a diet” type diet. I also want to emphasise that I this is completely based on personal experience and is therefore fully anecdotal. However, it may still be helpful to some, so…

A Vegan Tour of Vienna

I want to start with a disclaimer: I am not vegan. But, I love trying new food, and I love that these fancy vegan places are currently on trend. I particularly love that in buying vegan food I increase the demand for this market and that in general it’s a really easy way to make…

Rome’s Top 5 Gelatos: A Review

I was recently in Rome, and before going I had made it my mission to try Rome’s “top 5 gelatos”. As it turned out, there isn’t actually a definitive list of Rome’s “top 5 gelatos”, so I ended up having to compile my own list (thanks, the internet). In order to fit 5 ice creams…

3 Fabulous Brunch Spots in Barcelona

I’ve just spent a long weekend in Barcelona, i.e. 3 mornings, i.e. 3 brunch spots. They were all fabulous, so if you’re ever in the area I’d recommend checking them out! #1. Citizen Café This was a really cute spot near our hostel, located on the Plaça d’Urquinaona. This place has a distinctly hipster vibe,…

Top Sugar-Free Treats

A lot of people are currently doing sugar-free February. Which is amazing. I hate sugar, I think it is the devil, and I believe the #1 top thing you can do to live a healthier life is to cut out processed sugars. It’s also super easy to do – you need to set the ground…

Top Vegan Meals for Non-Vegans

Ideas for vegan meals to serve your meat-eating/ flexi/ veggie friends that don’t taste like there’s “something missing” (the most common complaint about vegan food I’ve heard). I’ve also included how to turn these into just vegetarian meals (mostly by adding cheese). Just a small disclaimer: I don’t personally feel like there’s “something missing” from…

Why Soup is the Ultimate Souperfood

I love soup. It’s like a salad, but blended. What I don’t get is: with this massive smoothie trend that’s currently in full swing, why isn’t soup more popular (or in fact considered part of that trend at all)? It’s got everything you could ask for: 1. It’s souper healthy (expect many more of these)…

Why the rise of “flexitarians” is so important

I’ve been an on-and-off vegetarian for many years. Here is how things would usually go: I’d be a vegetarian for a while, say 8 months. Then some an event would result in me eating meat. Either it would be Christmas, and I’d end up eating the traditional Danish Christmas Duck, or I’d spend some time…

5 healthy(ish) breakfasts for people who hate breakfast

Whether you hate it because you never have time for it, or like me, because you despise all breakfast foods with a passion, read on; this is for you. “Why do you hate breakfast foods?” I hear you ask. First of all, I can’t start the day on something sweet – I like to start…
