Kiwifruit Mint And Cardamom Lassi

Lately, after discovering the immense health benefits of kiwi fruit, I have been trying to incorporate it more in my recipes. I am not a big fruit lover. Especially ones that need a bit of a peel or prep. I hate cutting and prepping fruit. I probably can assign that...

Blackberry Overnight Oats

Every summer our blackberry vine creeps a bit further and grows more tendrils that become robust branches heaving with juicy black fruit at the peak of the season. It is amazing how many berries you can stuff in your mouth when you are picking them off the vines. As a...

5-Min Salted Pecan Cinnamon Nut Butter

When I was little and the weather got cold in Mumbai during winter (or as cold as it could possibly get, which I am now realising wasn't a whole lot after experiencing winter in Sydney which in turn might seem very tame to you Swedes or Canadians), my mum used to make...

7 Ingredient Detox Smoothie
7 Ingredient Detox Smoothie

For the better part of the week, I eat and drink sensibly. And in a timely manner. But then the weekend arrives and all my routines go out of the window. Sometimes, we are out at the crack of dawn for soccer and end up having two breakfasts and no lunch. And dinner...

Nick and I met 21 years ago when we were starry eyed and 18. Within a month, we had forged a bond that went deeper than societal norms and expectations. It started with an easy going friendship that blossomed into love. We dated for the longest time – 6 years. Then...

Instant Chocolate Avocado Mousse
Instant Chocolate Avocado Mousse

I first had a chocolate-avocado combination a few years ago at a friend's party where another friend had brought chocolate cupcakes with chocolate avocado icing. Ummm. It was okay. Strictly. I would need to have it at least ten times before I started enjoying it in...

Avocado Smoothie With Watercress And Lime
Avocado Smoothie With Watercress And Lime

I usually buy a big punnet of watercress from the veggie stall at the markets on Thursday, especially when I have a big weekend of entertaining planned. It is a great salad filler. But if it doesn't get tossed through a salad, it will sit on my fridge shelf...
