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.

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. I hate it because what’s healthy for me may not be healthy for you and vice versa. And our bodies can handle some ‘unhealthy’ food, as long as it’s in moderation. And what is Continue reading
