in our kitchen

The kitchen has been a busy place the past couple weeks despite the heavy humidity. I have been making an effort to choose more whole grains, to bake with healthier alternatives to cane sugar and to incorporate more legumes into our diets.

Here's a peek at a few of the wholesome snacks and meals that are keeping us sustained and happy.

maple syrup, walnut and banana muffins


spelt and berry cake (recipe to come tomorrow)


spinach, pumpkin and feta salad


roasted carrot dip- roasted carrots, chives and mint from the garden and a dash of garam masala, salt and pepper




buckwheat (soba) noodles with carrot, broccoli and seeds with tamari and ginger dressing

What have your been cooking?

Looks wonderful! I've been really into lentils lately, as well as baking, I do bake a lot with spelt flour too. Lots of pancakes, using leftover fruit purees! Can't let that go to waste. :)

Mmm what a divine collection of eats for the week! I may have to give that carrot dip a go, it looks delicious! I have barely been cooking lately, it's so hot here! But lots of salads from whatever is ready in the garden, and large quantities of fruit have been consumed lately... :)
