Snacking

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Right this moment, I should be answering emails but instead, I am sitting here and daydreaming about snacking on those apple slices totally covered with homemade cashew cocoa spread and topped with puffed quinoa.

Yup, the urge is so strong that I actually might get my coat on and pop by the corner store to get all the ingredients for it. If you feel the same, here is the how-to. Ready, steady, go...

In a food processor, combine 1.5 cups raw cashews, 1/4 cup almond milk, 3 tbsp cocoa powder, 3 tbsp maple syrup and 1/4 tsp salt. Spread on your apple slices and enjoy!

P.S: This crushed oreos and melted chocolate take looks pretty good too!
P.P.S: Plus, four super nifty apple tricks!

Wow! Have you ever been to Dubai?

If not, here is a tiny yet beautiful teaser of Dubai’s highways, swept over by desert sandstorms and shot beautifully by the brilliant Irenaeus Herok. I can’t get over the serenity of those images...

Fancy Latte (Made Easy at Home)


Fancy a little New Year trick to make your morning coffee taste like a fancy latte straight from your favourite café? The secret is in cashews. Yup!

Here is how to make it happen: simply blend a handful of raw cashews in a blender with your hot coffee and a tiny sploosh of maple syrup and blend until smooth and frothy. That is all! My Balazs has been drinking his coffee exactly like that for the past week or so, and if you ask him, he would tell you that it's a revelation!

Will you try it?

P.S: Fancy more coffee goodness?
P.P.S: Plus, coffee mindfulness.

Reflection Stories

Wednesday, January 10, 2018











Have you heard of Paola Franqui? This girl is magic! Ever since I discovered her work, I’ve been hooked. One of my favourites are the 'reflection stories' shot mostly in NYC.

The whole series is all about using reflections to document and tell stories, and looking beyond what is in front of you. Hm, sometimes we could all use a new perspective on things… Brilliant!

P.S: A little remider.
P.P.S: Love!
