Scrambled eggs with butter served on homemade Sourdough bread (with herbs) and roasted sweet cherry tomatoes with salt and black pepper to season. •
Sometimes a total stranger you meet says he will bake a sourdough bread for your family and shows up with it thoughtfully wrapped up and presents it to you with a big warm smile. God bless him and his family.
It makes you want to be a better person.

Make simple changes to improve diet quality. For example, when making your Spaguetti alla Carbonara, avoid the bacon and use olive oil instead.

Did you know diets rich in healthy foods containing fiber, such as some vegetables and fruits, may reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes? Healthy avocados are a good source of fiber (3 g per 50g serving) and are a great fresh fruit option to help boost fiber intake.

When your mango is good, you are guaranteed a good day ahead. 😎 Got those berries in the mix too. Variety is honestly the key and makes a world of difference for me when it comes to increasing my interest in the foods I eat, but also provide a variety of nutrients that my body needs. Each food will provide its own specific set of nutrients and altogether create balance. I guess that is why I end up confused when it comes to diet trends in general or demonizing a bunch of foods. It only looks at things in isolation rather than the overarching greater picture. 🌱

Woohoo! 🎉 Tomatoes are blowing up on Instagram today! 🍅🍅🍅Well, not literally (that would be very messy) but I am excited to be collaborating with over 70 talented bloggers, chefs and bakers from the Instagram universe as we showcase the ever versatile and summerlicious tomato with #wesaytomatoes.
This Blistered Tomato Galette with Ricotta and Pesto is the perfect taste combo in my opinion … crunchy, buttery phyllo pastry, homemade lemony ricotta (you’ll never buy store bought again!), fresh basil pesto and colourful, juicy tomatoes, in all shapes and colours, that taste like heaven! Nothing too fussy here, just pure summer on a plate, that’s all! And the best part is, since tomatoes are a fruit (yes, they are), I get to eat this for breakfast! 😋
A big thank you to organizers @squaremealroundtable and @whatAnnieseating for including me in their 6th collaboration. You ladies are the best! 😘 All #wesaytomatoes collaborators are posted in the comments below. I hope you’ll check them out. The creativity and talent out there is truly inspiring. I love them all … from my head to-ma-toes! 😂🍅❤️ Thanks also to @sheena.nugent for getting the green thumb gene in the family and donating these gorgeous tomatoes to the cause! 😘😘
My lunch is most often super disorganized and not very pretty looking. 🤗 But today I thought I’d dress it up for you and show you some of the fun things I have to look forward to at lunch tomorrow. 🙃
Top Tray 🍱: Tahini Maple Energy Bites with fresh cherries! I’ve been obsessed with cherries recently. Trying to eat my fill before they are gone for the season. 😭 .
Bottom Tray 🍱: Steamed Kabocha Squash, roasted broccoli, sautéed miso mushrooms, roasted miso glazed eggplant. To make eggplant, cut eggplant in half and create shallow hashmarks on both halves. Mix together 1/2 tsp miso paste, 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar, 2 tsp maple syrup, and 1 tsp soy sauce. Once combine, brush mixture over eggplants and sprinkle with your favorite seasoning mix. I went with garlic, smoked paprika and salt. Pop in the oven for 25 minutes at 350F. I got a chance to sample everything, and really happy that this is what I get to look forward to. 🍽
Maple Tahini Energy Bites
1 cup rolled oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp shredded coconut flakes, plus extra to coat at the end
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup @soomfoods Tahini
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp cacao nibs 🍫
Place everything except cacao nibs in food processor. Close and pulse at least 10 to 15 times to combine. Mixture should clump together and should only be slightly sticky but easy to roll into balls. If mixture is too sticky, add a little more oats and pulse to get right consistency. If too dry, add 1 tbsp at a time of maple syrup. Once dough like consistency is reached, gently fold in the nibs. Scoop 1 tbsp of mixture on to clean hands and begin rolling them into balls. Roll Energy Bites onto extra coconut flakes and set aside on a plate, repeating steps with remaining dough mixture. Once complete, place in freezer to set for at least 15 minutes prior to serving. Remaining energy balls can be saved in the freezer for later use. ❤️
