Moroccan Harira Soup

I came up recently with a new game for Marek. The aim of this game is to widen my sons horizons.  My boy is totally and I mean totally obsessed with football. He lives and breathes football to be precise. Although there’s nothing wrong with  being passionate football player/maniac I feel that I should make […]

Avocado and tuna salad

I absolutely love avocado and could literally live on it. It’s not just tasty but it’s also a great food medicine.   Loaded with important fiber, which   reduce blood sugar spikes and is  linked to a lower risk of many diseases  by keeping our digestive system regular. Higher in  potassium  than bananas. Potassium is an important […]

And I found this….Indian spicy stew….BINGO it made my mouth water straight away and that’s always a […]
