The last few days weren’t as hot anymore as it was last week in LA. Ok still a really nice temperature, but no heat wave anymore. Now I could finally prepare the carnival squash I received from Frieda’s. Because believe me, if it’s so hot, I have absolutely no desire to turn on the oven, let alone to eat squash.

Nowadays I feel like a super hippie who’s connecting with the earth and I secretly kind of like it. I’ve always been a fan of home made food, to bake my own bread for example or even making hummus or pesto. But lately I thought I had no time to do this, so I bought ready-made hummus and bread which contains much more than just flour, water, salt and yeast.
But since I have created the Pure Food Challenge (which is happening this month) I take time again to make things myself. I’m testing Continue reading

You can barely call this a recipe but I háve to share this with you guys.
This iced coffee with coconut and almond milk is a healthy alternative to a latte if you can’t have dairy. But yuck, I hate the word ‘healthy’ and I just used it.

So when last Sunday the LA Cake Club took place again, I just had to join. The LA Cake Club is a Continue reading
