Thai Style Kelp Noodle Salad

I first heard about Kelp noodles from my raw food teacher Daniw Arrazola. It was the ‘noodle’ ingredient in the raw noodle recipe that she taught, but Fine Organic Gallery that sold it ran out of stock. Luck was not on my side after a couple of times of dropping by that shop, but it never occur to me to pre-order it as it wasn’t something I urgently wanted to try. Continue Reading →

Vegetarian Buckwheat Pancake Pizza (Gluten Free)

It might seem strange to some, but I don’t miss any food made with wheat. This would be an utterly absurd thought when I was first told by my naturopath 3 years ago to omit wheat among a few other food groups. I was whining and protesting. 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.

Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are, for what you could become.

Refreshing Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa on Gluten Free Oat Flatbread

Oat Flatbread Fish Tacos

As a Pinterest addict, getting lost in the world of beautiful photos of recipes and DIY crafts happens pretty often. If I don’t set a time frame for my “Pinterest” time, I could spent hours pinning away. It’s not uncommon that Pinterest is a great source of recipe inspiration, because recipes are amongst the most pinned items. Easy oat flatbread is one of the recipes I found and experimented with a few times, if you have been following my instagram account, the few gluten free flatbread recipes I’ve tried, couldn’t be rolled out properly, the texture was dry and stiff.

A crepe without egg and naturally gluten free? With a basic 2 ingredient (rice flour and coconut milk), you can make a savory and crispy Vietnamese crepe filled with shrimp, meat and veggies.

Zucchini Noodles Aglio et Olio

I jumped right in when I saw Dr John Cassone organized a 2 Weeks Fruits & Veggie Cleanse on Google+ right after Easter. Since my 7-day Raw Food Detox at Bahay Kalipay Retreat, I had been indulging more than usual over the months, causing me to feel bloated and sometimes sluggish. The 2 Weeks Cleanse / Fast was timely for me to detox and increase my energy. Continue Reading →

Big Breakfast Oats

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’m in a rut. I’m not in any mood to make any Chinese New Year goodies at all. My usual favourites – peanut cookies and bak kwa (dried meat) doesn’t turn me on. Don’t get me wrong. I have a sweet tooth and am a big snack eater. Something is just not turned on this year. The only thing I felt like making is this deliciously chewy (and healthy) Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies.
