Easy, peasy chocolate brownie

November 17, 2015

easy, peasy chocolate brownie by Lily & Mila. Read on www.karinecandicekong.comThis is one of the easiest chocolate brownie recipe you will ever make!
Mila and Lily did this chocolate brownie during half term alone. I put the oven on and they did the preparation alone.

I love when kids bake on holidays, don’t you!?
It’s a good way to keep them busy, teach them something useful while having fun and on top of it, you get to have some cake to eat afterwards and seriously…this chocolate brownie is so incredibly easy that it won’t take you no more than 15 min to prepare but it tastes DE-LI-CIOUS!

As I’m intolerant to gluten (I ballooned like a whale!), we used gluten-free flour to make this chocolate brownie so I could have a little slice but you can use normal flour if you wish. READ MORE...

Breakfast for champions

November 3, 2015

Breakfast for champions or how to heal your soul & body with healthy food. Read on www.karinecandicekong.comBreakfast is my favourite meal. I love how it gives me the chance to reset my mind and start fresh with healthy food. I love the feeling of doing something good for myself, to do things slowly… with awareness.
Beside no 9 which will eventually come back when I’m ready and no 3 which I have replaced by homeopathy, these days I’m pretty much sticking to these healthy habits I’ve formed since the beginning of the year.

On the subject of eating healthy food, recent researches are suggesting that depression is a result of inflammation caused by the body’s immune system. In a nutshell, anything processed (soft drinks, junk food, refined sugars) creates unhappy guts which then leads to depression (mild or severe). It’s a vast subject and one that I don’t have the energy to discuss at length right now but having experienced it first hand and seeing the positive effects, changing my diet did to my well-being since the beginning of the year, I’m firmly convinced there is a relation between what we eat and how we feel.
My dad was suffering a lot from his guts, sadly he was too stubborn to listen to Elodie and I, to try to make changes to his diet but maybe mentioning it here, will help someone else. I’m not saying food is the answer to everything but it is something that can not be ignored for our own sake at the prevention stage. READ MORE...

Gluten-free, FODMAPs banana cake recipe. Read on www.karinecandicekong.comI think this is the third recipe of banana cake I’ve posted on the blog.

This banana cake recipe is gluten-free, FODMAPs friendly, refined sugar-free and if you don’t have food intolerance, it is simply delicious and healthy. READ MORE...
