Very Berry Power Smoothie1

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 →

Pumpkin Seed Bars & Truffles – guilt-free and nutritious sweet treat

Pumpkin Seed Bars & Truffles

Once you’ve tried making your favourite nut/seed butters, there’s no turning back. For peeps like me who don’t get access to good quality nut/seeds butters, a good old handy food processor helps with making your own from scratch a breeze.

4-ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie (Gluten & Dairy Friendly)

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.

Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (Homemade Nutella)

Everyone loves Nutella, especially my sister CM. She would eat nutella by the spoonfuls.. so I thought why don’t I make a homemade healthier version for her with real good quality ingredients. (I think by now some of you know how obsessed I am about making things from scratch). Well, it’s basically chocolate + hazelnut spread, the recipe I found online is similar to any nut butter recipe. I’ve made Almond Butter & Honey Roasted Walnut Butter. And with my new Kenwood food processor, it shouldn’t be a big deal.. or so I thought Continue Reading →

With all the unnecessary worry and stress the past weeks, I took some time off to be with the nature – frolicking in the river, lazing around doing nothing and finally managed to finish a book after many years! After a relaxing weekend, this girl still need her snacking habit fixed and came up with an inspiration of Homemade Peanut Butter Cups.

Millet Porridge

It’s been a while since I had millets and I was missing their nutty flavour. Millet is commonly used as breakfast cereal / breakfast porridge in Himalayas and certain parts of China. Here I use millet to replace my Banana Oatmeal. Although oats have been widely publicized for their heart-protective properties, millet is a grain that should be included on your list of heart-healthy choices because it is highly nutritious and has a good source of minerals.

Millet Patties

While I was on the Candida diet, there’s many grains, gluten & dairy products have to be avoided. It was so difficult to find alternative for my  breakfast. Until I found my saviour – Millet, which I bought at the organic shop. Later I also found Mydin @ USJ sells unhulled millet, which I tried to hull with a food processor with not much success.. I read that a coffee grinder works best!

Unhulled Millet vs Hulled Millet
