After a(nother) week of overindulgence, it’s back to cleaner eating: less sugar, less meat, less starch and more fruit, more veggies and more water. This red lentil and vegetable soup fits in great with the healthier eating plan, and I’m stoked to let you know it’s absolutely delicious (which is not always the case with diet-type food). Here’s to a week of detox!
I’ve baked these date and banana muffins with pecan nuts for the first time a few weeks back, and now I’m totally hooked. I can’t get enough of it! I literally make the trip to the grocery store just to buy a few bananas so I can bake these beauties. It looks kind of weird, my basket totally empty but for a few bananas in a plastic bag. It is worth it, though. Every bite a masterpiece, as my hubby would say.
I love curry. But I L.O.V.E chicken curry. And this butter chicken curry is right up there with my other super favourite chicken and butternut curry with peanut butter. This one is more of a classic, though, with loads of garam masala, turmeric and garlic. The stuff that dreams are made of! This one is a winner for the whole family (no chilies), no matter what the season.
This month’s featured cookbook is by one of my all time favourite bloggers, Sam Linsell of Drizzle and Dip (I started following her long before I even thought of starting a blog of my own). Sweet is her second published cookbook – a true feast for the eyes – with recipes that are just as accessible as those on her blog.
