Take-aways from Denver

I am buzzing. Last Friday I officially graduated and now I am a proud Certified Eating Psychology Coach. I went all the way to Denver, Colorado to get my certificate, learn more during a four day event and hang out with my tribe.

Haggis from my kitchen

Haggis is Scottish national dish, that combines meat with oatmeal, onions, salt and spices. It is traditionally cooked in a sheep’s stomach (a historic way of preserving meat), but most haggis nowadays is sold and cooked in a synthetic sausage casing.

In Poland we have a similar dish called kaszanka – blood sausage made of a mixture of pig’s blood, pig offal, and buckwheat kasza stuffed in a pig intestine.

I’m glad you’re…

Today I invite you into my kitchen and together we are preserving lemons. Fun!…

I stuffed my inner 6 year old with ice cream

I spent last week in Southern Italy, breathing in the incredible scents of nature, taking in the views and enjoying the sunshine. And, of course, I ate.

This time I went with an open head about my diet. Yes, I generally avoid dairy, don’t eat meat and keep away from gluten. Not that long ago I would have stressed and tried to pre-plan and control everything. This time I just…

Greetings from Krakow!

When I travel I always look for local specialities and my recent trip to Krakow (Cracow), Poland was no different. Only in Krakow you can eat Obwarzanki which have been made there since 17th Century so they must be good!

If you ever find yourself in Krakow make sure you try some; they are being sold from carts all over the Market Square and Wawel Castle. If you are not…
