Delightfully moist Banana Bread Muffins with Macadamia Nuts & Dark Chocolate, cute single serving that is a great grab-and-go snack.
What a month it has been. I have some very exciting news to share. Sorry for diverting a little bit. A production company contacted me a while back if I were keen to appear on Chef Luke Nguyen’s show in KL. Being a fan of his tv shows, my favourite being Luke Nguyen‘s Vietnam, naturally I said yes! I was among a few other bloggers showing Luke our favourite secret Malaysian eats and street food vendors. The filming in KL is one of the episodes for Street Food Asia airing next year. It was awesome to find out that Luke just exactly like how he is on tv, very down to earth and funny, though behind the scenes he takes his work very seriously. Just having the experience of showing Luke our delicious Malaysian food is priceless and fun. Crossing my fingers that my few seconds on the show, does not get cut out by the director.

Banana Spirulina Smoothie packed with healthy fats, good carbohydrate, complete protein and green boost to fuel your day and workout.
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Tracy took me along to her personal training session as her husband could not make it to that session. Honestly, I’ve not been actively working out this year, just some occasional yoga practice, morning walks at the park, hike or swim. As I don’t like working out in the gym, a part of me dreaded a killer session but a part of me was so looking forward to it because I’ve been wanting to firm and strengthen my body, especially the arms and abs.

Hearty, savoury oatmeal with miso to start your day
Most of us associate oats with sweet breakfast, either banana oatmeal or granola. Not many are aware that there are many great savory oatmeal recipes and I hope you’ll try one soon. To some of you, savoury oats might sound odd or yucky. Oats are a great grain to use like any other grain like rice or quinoa and you don’t have to use it just for a sweetened breakfast.

Power packed smoothie with beautiful summer berries, chia seed & hemp seed
I am indeed very blessed for the chance to visit some amazing European cities recently – Barcelona Spain, Paris France, Bruges Belgium and a couple of cities in the Netherlands, with many 1st time food experiences. You might have seen the photos on my Instagram. Picnic by the canal with ducks and geese swimming by. Tasted salted cod fish and black summer truffles. Unknowingly ate calf’s brain. Pricked by cactus pear. Picked wild bramen (blackberries) and turning them into a yummy dessert. Continue Reading →

This is my typical daily Big Breakfast Oats, except it looks like a pile of mess on most days (like my Banana Oatmeal recipe). This is my evolved breakfast oatmeal. I used to burnt my oatmeal.. quite often.. sigh.. I’ve received enough stern looks. I’m really bad at multitasking – cooking rolled oats on stove while brushing my teeth or picking my clothes. Without knowing it, something smelt burnt. My poor pot has seen better days. Continue Reading →
My digestion has acted up quite badly from early this year, causing me restless nights and fatigue relapse. My road to recovery from leaky gut is ongoing since 2 years, thus having the bloating symptoms reoccur can be frustrating. Having planned many great projects this year, I felt disappointed when things are not going well in that direction. When I get a bit better, I just pushed & overworked my body. Then the body breaks down again. Continue Reading →
I have 2 confessions to make.
1st confession – I’m not a morning person and I become grouchy bear if I’m on empty stomach. So stay away from me in the morning, especially if I didn’t get my breakfast. I will try to get as much sleep as I possibly can before waking up, I’d rather get an extra 15 minutes sleep than using them to do my hair or make-up.
2nd confession – I l used to eat in the car while driving to work, and I still do now when I’m running around in the morning.
Egg “Muffins” are great breakfast ideas for anyone who’s busy in the morning and wants something that can be made ahead and eaten on-the-go. These Egg Muffins, or more like mini-quiches baked in muffin cups to create a grab-and-go breakfast that you can make on the weekends and then quickly reheat in the oven for a hot breakfast on the go.

This Banana Pancake recipe isn’t exactly a pancake, but it’s shaped like a pancake, eaten like a pancake, just sans the flour in recipe. Yes you heard me. Flourless pancake, just banana and eggs, and taste just as delicious. Whoever created this recipe is a genius.
Now don’t you agree everyone could use less flour in their food intake. Even though I am intolerant to wheat, I still substitute wheat with other grain flours like rice, buckwheat, millet and sorghum. Whole-kernel grains does conceal an array of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and fiber. But when machines pulverize kernels into flour, even whole-grain flour, what’s left behind is a starchy powder capable of wreaking havoc on the body. Continue Reading →
