Fall into fresh

After a summer of indulging, it’s time to focus on better balance in your diet. It isn’t about making huge changes, and I am not preaching for 100% plant-based diet but adding some interesting variety to your menu never hurt.

This season I’m exploring some of my favourite healthy options and, as always, want you to be inspired, take my ideas and make them your own.

With so many vegan, gluten-free, natural and organic products available, you can enjoy nutritious meals that are good for you… without giving up on flavour.

Green Pea Soup
A simple green pea soup can be accented with the addition of only a few spices and garnishes like crispy onions, torn mint leaves, pinenuts and a few sautéed fresh peas.

Quinoa Salad with Beet Root and Spinach
Here is a twist I highly recommend that will give your quinoa  a lift. Simply toast the quinoa in the oven (3-5 minutes on broil) to give your salad even more crunch.

Vegan Super Sandwich  
Don’t shy away from interesting ingredients. Be brave and  experiment a little. A great vegan alternative to egg salad can be made with tofu, vegan mayo and turmeric replacing the egg in most recipes.

Fresh Garden Smoothie
A quick and easy-to-prepare meal alternative, a smoothie delivers your daily dose of most food groups and is easy to carry with you. To sweeten your drink without sugar, use dates or honey.

Gran Cru Deli A sip of Equinoxe Crozes-Hermitage, startled me with its atypical acidity, savoury notes of olive set off by white pepper. A lovely, quirky, unexpected find. Much like Grand Cru Deli where I tasted this intriguing wine with
