Baked potato wedges with turmeric




Turmeric, a spice commonly used in Indian curries, has been hailed as one of the anti-inflammatory super spices. Along with garlic, ginger, chili, curry powder, basil, rosemary, thyme and cinnamon, these spices help decrease chronic low-level inflammation. Most diseases we face today such as allergies, auto-immune disease and age-related diseases are all linked to chronic inflammation. One of the ways we can help reduce this inflammation is by adding more anti-inflammatory foods and / or supplements into our diets.

Avgolemono Soup

“Egg-lemon” soup may not sound like an appetising soup based on its translation from the Greek “Avgolemono”. It is actually a humble chicken and rice soup, thickened with egg and flavoured with freshly squeezed lemon. It's comforting and satisfying without being too heavy.

Food intolerance and Raspberry-Chocolate Muffins

Raspberry-Chocolate Muffins

I'll never forget the day my husband came home to tell me that he was intolerant to a long list of foods.

"I can't eat anything," he said, feeling a little sorry for himself.

I didn't know what to do or say since I had just given birth to my son and my hands were full. Neither of us knew much about food intolerances, or how they differ from food allergies. Two years later, my husband can indeed eat food – and a good variety too – but it's prepared in a healthier way. We are also more aware of ingredients that go into everyday foods and choose products more carefully.

A New Year and rustic chicken pie recipe




Happy New Year!  May 2014 bring you lots of happiness, love, prosperity and anything your heart desires.  I don't normally do resolutions but this year I’ve decided on one goal for the year – to practice yoga every day for the whole year.  It doesn’t matter if it’s for fifteen minutes or one hour, as long as I do it every day.
