Vitamin E avocado & almond smoothie

This summer we holidayed in Morocco, splitting our time between Marrakesh and Essaouira. It’s always difficult to choose but they are two of my favourite places on Earth I think.

Heart-healthy blueberry & almond baked oatmeal

About a year ago, a start-up US magazine called Nanny Magazine approached me and asked if I would like to contribute some recipes to their maiden print issue. They were looking for recipes that were both heart-healthy, child-friendly and simple to create. It still astonishes me how blogs can connect people from across the globe … Continue reading
