Earthy nutty buckwheat pancake with vegetarian topping, it’s an earthy pizza loaded with goodness!
It might seem strange to some, but I don’t miss any food made with wheat.

I thought I would literally “die” without bread, cakes, pasta and noodles. I wanted progress, to get better, and yet detested change. Humans are strange beings, aren’t we? Change is scary, and until we are forced to change, until we feel the pain, most of us prefer our safety net – clinging to the things we are familiar with.

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 →

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.
