Cinnamon Drink

Cinnamon Drink

 I LOVE Cinnamon water. (or Cinnamon drink, Cinnamon tea or whatever you like to call this!) It has this natural sweetness that is pleasant and doesn't linger on your palate. I first had this drink in a Korean restaurant and always wanted to have this at home as much as I want!  That is why when I make it I like to make it in a large pot and store in the fridge. It is super easy to make.  As we all know cinnamon has a lot of health benefits, there are even more reasons to drink this yummy stuff....

Black Chia Pudding with Greek yogurt - for your hair beauty

 Looking for something different?   The reason why I wanted to create this recipe was because I wanted to do something about my postnatal hair! I think some women out there might understand what I'm talking about. Pregnancy does a lot to your body which as a result will change your hair too. I lost hair during my second pregnancy and also lost the SHINE and looked like I had really dry hair. That's when I thought about using black sesame as a remedy. We have been making stone ground black sesame butter for a while in our kitchen and...

Upgrade Your Coffee

Simple things in life can make a big difference.  After writing about the Bulletproof Green Tea recipe, I thought of sharing this drink I like to make in the afternoon on weekdays when I'm tied to my desk.

Yes, it does and many people drink this to lose weight. It also helps you to gain more energy and improve your athletic performance. Is that healthy or not? My opinion is...

Coconut Flour Vanilla Muffin

My daughter LOVES sweets and especially cakes. since she was a child I made muffins and called it muffin'cake'.  Up to this day she still calls muffins with a 'cake'. I made a few gluten-free muffins but I like this one as I can use coconut flour for more fiber and keep it low GI. Plus its paleo.  I used the flavored Extra Virgin Oilve Oil for this recipe which had a very nice aroma but you can also use normal EVOO and add the vanilla extract too. Enjoy this super easy & healthy muffin! (Makes 9 medium muffins) Ingredients: ...
