I’ve decided to start a Throw-Back-Thursday section to my blog, where I’ll post some recipes and other content from ‘back-in-the-day’. I’ve decided to share this recipe with you, which is one of my earliest entries.
I love love love aubergines, or as we call them back in South Africa ‘Bringals’. They are quite versatile and can be used to make vegetable lasagna, are the main ingredient in the middle eastern baba ganoush, and make perfect additions to any roast vegetable dish.

I have such fond memories of my mom’s homemade muesli when I was growing up. I remember how she used to make a huge batch and store it in this massive square white Tupperware. I remember how she used to, ever so slightly, toast the batch, not to burn it but to give that delicious crunch.
Such fond memories! This inspired me to try re-create her recipe, with a healthy twist. This recipe is particularly great for Diabetics as it is refined sugar free. Continue reading

This recipe is a Moroccan twist on a Quinoa salad. It is super easy, really quick, and perfect for lunch the next day! I often make a big batch of dinner, and have it for lunch the next day. It saves time in the morning, plus most meals taste amazing the next day.
I love quinoa, and adore how versatile it is. You can literally toss a couple of your favorite ingredients into a quinoa salad and I’m 99% certain each time it’ll turn out great! It definitely is a staple in my pantry, and forever on my shopping list.
With our fast paced lifestyles these days, time is valued greatly. This is a perfect recipe for busy people, who don’t have much time to spare in the kitchen. The result is delicious, nutritious and a perfect lunch box treat!
With only a handful of ingredients, these No Bake Choc Squares won’t break the bank, or take up much of your time creating them.
Before my massive lifestyle changes, I was never a great fan of regular cheese. Yeah I used to eat it, but it wasn’t a necessity. Obviously my pizza’s back in the day used to be laced with the stuff, but other than that, I didn’t really consume much of the stuff. I did, however, love feta cheese. I think it’s something about the saltiness and the texture that really turned my taste buds on. Only recently have I made the decision to stop eating it, purely for the fact that it, like other cheese, is pretty much rot. Yup, no more feta for me please and thank you!
Luckily, there is an alternative for all those feta loving health nuts out there. Macadamia nut ‘cheese’. Yes, a crumbly ‘cheese like textured’ creation, that flaunts an array of flavors, and is quite versatile too.
I absolutely LOVE basil pesto. It has to be one of the most versatile spreads ever! Full of nutritional goodness, and amazing flavor, it’s a must for every household fridge.
From raw pasta dishes, to cauliflower pizza base spreads, to quinoa salads, Basil Pesto can add a delicious fresh and vibrant flavor to a range of meals.
