April 20, 2018
Appreciating the little things in life, one ruby at a time! Health & Wellness, Foodie, Wine & Lifestyle blogger.
1. What inspired you to write about food?
What inspired me to write about food is my passion for cooking & baking. I also suffer with food allergies (dairy and a sensitivity to wheat & gluten) and this has inspired me to make delicious, healthy alternatives.
2.How would you describe your site to new readers?
My blog is fun & lighthearted. It’s something anyone can look at , read & enjoy. It’s a little piece of who I am and what I love. I enjoy engaging with others about interesting topics.
3.What is your take on organic food, is it a big deal for you?
Organic food is great, however it’s not always affordable (which is understandable). I try to buy as much organic fresh fruit & vegetables from markets such as the Oranjezicht Farmer’s Market as I can and my protein usually comes from the Woolies Free range section. But not always!
4.You try a new recipe and it does not turn out the way you had planned, what do you do?
I look for other alternatives depending on how the recipe failed to meet my standards and just t ry again until I succeed!
5.What are your three favourite ingredients?
This one is so hard! Has to be Raw Honey, Coconut Milk and Dates (Sweet) and then Garlic, Tomato Paste & Ginger (Savoury) These are so versatile!
6.What are you 3 worst ingredients?
Sugar (so unnecessary) , Coriander and Salt. A few ways to ruin a dish!
7.What is your favourite local restaurant? Why?
The Hungry Herbivore- they make the most amazing vegan treats & food. I can recommend their Mexican a bowl - It’s the best ever! Not to mention their Raw Caramel Cheesecake. Winning! Find them at 11 Orphan Street, Cape Town.
