Did you know that we absorb about 60-70% of everything we put onto our skin into our blood stream? So if any of your makeup contains chemicals then you have have these chemicals pumping around your body! Especially with being pregnant, I really care what I am putting in and ON my body!
When I started this lifestyle I knew I wanted it to extend to more than just the food on my table. I stopped using as many conventional products and tried to develop a more natural make up routine. Not only is my skin so much better before, but I’ve also saved so much money on fancy products, leaving me more money to spend on more good food 🙂
1 – Mineral Foundation- Neals Yard
After I wash my face in the morning and put on my moisturizer (that always contains SPF) I start with my mineral foundation. Made with organic ingredients this is heaps better than any other chemical filled foundation I’ve used before. Plus with my oily prone skin, this helps keeps the oiliness at bay.
Can be found in: Neals Yard Shop (Dubai Mall, Dubai Marina Mall and Wafi)
Most days I wake up generally craving something sweet, my go to breakfast is usually mangoes or papayas. But there are those days, especially on the weekend when I want to spend more time preparing my brekky or I’m craving a savoury breakfast Continue reading
‘Ricotta’ stuffed pasta was the main for my valentines day meal ❤ ALSO a great dish to impress guests, even non-vegans will not be able to tell the difference between ricotta and the ‘cheese’ used here!
I usually am not a fan of mock meats or cheese but this mixture was PERFECT!
Photo cred and recipe inspired from the amazing oh she glows blog http://ohsheglows.com/2013/03/13/jumbo-stuffed-shells/. I follow her on instagram and is such an inspiration to all vegan bloggers!
I was so in love with this casserole dish that I carried it all the way back from the UK to Dubai, yes it was SO heavy but SO worth it. Just look at how pretty it is 🙂 My kitchen has a lot of orange tidbits so this fits in perfectly!
I was waiting for the perfect dish to pop its cherry and here it is – couscous stuffed eggplant!
If you are looking for a super healthy hearty dinner, look no further than a Vegan Shepherds Pie! I’ve wanted to make this recipe for a while but it has been on the back burner. The weekend is always a good time for me to try out new recipes 🙂
Today celebrates my one year of blogging! Looking back I had no idea where I would be in a year or if I would still be blogging.Im so happy to say I am still as passionate about all of it as I was one year ago if not more 🙂 Now back to what started all this, the food:
I love it when my Mama is over I take advantage and ask her to cook with me a Lebanese dish 🙂 Ofcourse we always argue at how much oil and salt goes in, however I always win!
When I first started researching the types of dal, I was surprised at how many versions there are out there.
Here are some of grains that dal is made out of. What a lovely photo!
I have recently been busy travelling, I was away in Turkey then I head to the UK this weekend so I have been busy busy busy!
Turkey was one amazing feast- I bought these lovely fresh green beans back with me to Dubai to make Loubia B’Zeit, I could not resist!
We have a term in Arabic called “Moune” that essentially means the food storage/cupboard. You do a big shop every once in a while and store all that food in a cupboard, I did that a while ago and wanted to just cook something that I had in there. So out came Soba noodle stir fry out of my mouneh cupboard 🙂
