Upgrade Your Coffee

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.   These two ingredients that I add to my coffee seems to save me from snacking in the afternoon times. No snacking means focused and time saving.     Does coffee suppress apatite?   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...

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)...

Jun Tea - How to Brew Jun at Home

  I'm sure you know about Kombucha by now but did you know kombucha had a cousin?   Jun tea is believed to be originated from Tibet area and it is a fermented tea drink made from green tea and raw honey. It is not as vinegary as kombucha and lighter in color due to the green tea ( instead of kombucha's black tea).   I like to use raw honey from Himalaya to make this drink as I imagine the ancient Jun tea was made form their local honey and this should suit the brew? I know other raw honeys...

Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake with Coconut Flour Crust

Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake with Coconut Flour Crust

I must say this is one of my favorite low carb recipe. Especially it tastes really good the next day in the refrigerator. Also I love this recipe because you can make it in one bowl (in this case its one food processor bowl!) and its low in sugar. I've used coconut flour to replace the carbs in the crust and the sweetener is Natvia only.  Instead of cream cheese and cream I've used Anari Cheese which is texture wise, like a blend of cream cheese and cottage cheese. Its also very versatile as the neutral flavor allows this cheese...
