Love your guts!

November 17, 2017

What do you call them? Gut microbiota? Gut flora? Gut bugs? Whatever you call them, how much do you really know about them? Gut microbiota is the first thing I teach my clients about, as they (the bugs, not my clients), really are THE foundation of your health. They influence the state of your immune system, your memory, your moods and so much more. The good bacteria in your digestive system affects your body’s vitamin and mineral absorbency, hormone regulation,…

September 21, 2017

We all have been there: ” you knew that your high school  reunion (family holiday, best friend’s wedding…)  is in 3 months, and you planned to lose some weight before that, however, life happened ( work got busy, your knee gave up,  house renovation took over the rest of your life…) and now you have 7 days to perform some magic so you can fit into that slinky dress you plan on wearing. Are you panicking yet?? If so, don’t until…

One thing you will NEVER hear me say!

July 20, 2017

“Cup of tea? No, thanks…” “No” to cup of tea? That’s almost a blasphemy if you ask me! I don’t think, at least I cannot remember, ever refusing one. To me, warm, steaming cup of freshly brewed tea is just like a warm hug, or liquid love right there in your cup…or mug…or a glass, depending on your preference. Glass?! I hear you ask. Yes, glass. That’s how I drink my tea. And the reason for it is simple; cup…

Labneh

March 30, 2017

I don’t think there is an easier thing to make than labneh. But don’t let it fool you, don’t judge the end product by the simplicity of this recipe. Often, the simplest recipe produces the tastiest result, as it is in this case. Make sure you use the best quality yoghurt you can get your hands on (FULL fat please!) and the best quality olive oil to drizzle the labneh with when it’s ready. It makes an excellent sourdough bread…

5 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

January 17, 2017

It’s that time of the year. Whoever you meet, whoever you speak to have the same New Year resolution: to get healthier, to eat better and 9 out of 10 times: to lose weight. You start in high spirits; sign up for a gym membership, get new exercising gear, wake up a little earlier and go for a morning walk… But then, sometime in the first days of March the motivation dwindles, the morning sleep seems irresistible and the gym…well,…

Delicious Christmas Pudding

December 12, 2016

What Christmas would it be without a proper Christmas Pudding?? Silly question, I know! If someone asked me that today I would most likely roll my eyes and think “poor guy had a concussion…” However, if you asked me the same question 20 years ago, I would stare at you like you just fell of Mars. No idea! Back then I lived in Europe (born in Poland, with a short, 5 year long stint in Berlin) and my Christmas was…

Blueberry Pie

Last weekend was my youngest daughter's birthday. My baby turned 15. I won't bore you with the usual " My, how the time flies! Where did the years go?"

Just kidding, of course I will! WHERE DID THOSE 15 YEARS GO?? Yesterday she was a tiny little toddler with milky blonde hair hiding shyly behind my leg.Today she towers over me and one thing she doesn't lack is confidence.

For her 15th birthday cake she chose blueberry pie. Comparing to the cake I made…

Easy peasy lemon squeezy coconut cream ice cream!

November 3, 2016

The last few days were absolutely sweltering in this part of the world, and on days like this all you crave for is cold, freezing, frosty ice cream. I don't know about you, but I have a problem with the comercial ice cream. And the problem is this: not only is it FULL of sugar, it is also chock-a-block of crap ingredients you don't want to eat or feed your pets, not mentioning your little angels. Have you ever made ice cream…
