Happy New Year lovely people! It’s been a while – the house has been occupied with family and friends and it’s been lovely. And I don’t know about you but I’ve got a great feeling about 2017 despite newly elected presidents and Brexit voes. Continue reading “Take me to the market…”

It’s easy to get totally carried anyway during this time of year. Lovely, scrumptious temptations are everywhere we look and it is hard to stay on the straight and narrow with drinks parties, mulled wine, mince pies and Christmas flavoured coffees all around us.

On the classic Swedish Christmas table, you’ll always find some sort of kale salad. Often dressed with a citrus dressing it goes wonderfully well with all the various staples such as meatballs, ham, herring, cooked fish and sausages that are traditionally part of our ‘julbord’ – the Christmas version of the more known ‘smorgasbord’.

The longer I stick to a predominantly plant-based diet, the more I crave it. Funny isn’t it? Contrary to what one may think, making your meal consist of mainly veg is actually not the purist, boring and lonely avenue some may proclaim it to be, rather it is an incredibly delicious, energising and unifying endeavour which keeps on giving.

So when my friend cooked these vegan and gluten-free falafels for me last week I got so excited that I came home and recreated them right away.

img_4772

When I was in California earlier this Summer I came across a vacuum packed charcoal stick called Binchotan Charcoal, claiming to purify water. The helpful lady in the shop told me the Japanese had used charcoal to detoxify water since the 17th century. Who knew? As I love anything Japanese, especially their tea rituals and seaweed rich diet, this was something I needed to explore. Continue reading “Binchotan Charcoal – purifies your water differently”

When it comes to receiving good advice, less is sometimes more. You may have been there. A good idea pops into your mind and immediately you follow-up on your hunch with bits of initial research – you can feel the beginnings of excitement starting to simmer at the back of your mind. As an entrepreneur, I am well familiar with that burgeoningΒ  feeling – the possibility of maybe. Continue reading “Paddle your own canoe”
